It allows for the blending of people with morals and ethics, which differ around the world, and combining that with the morality vacuum that is the collective internet hivemind, generally comprised of the same people.
At first it was a kind of double-life thing, whereby you had your morals and ethics, but when you were online you just held them at bay. However, constant and increasing exposure and depth has started to take root in the minds of the collective, and we are all starting to wonder what morals and ethics really are, because we find ourselves incrementally aligning with the hivemind, thinking as it does, feeling as it does, and that effect is starting to linger in each of us whenever we separate from it.
It is beginning to break down what morals and ethics really are to us, and we no longer accept them simply on the basis of what we were taught to feel. Now we're thinking for ourselves, with the internet hivemind as our mentor for critical thinking, and we now face a juncture where we must soon come to decide if having a system of morals at all is worth it, or if we are simply going to embrace the Anonymous style that lives in the ever-encroaching cyberspace.
The more integrated we become with it, the more we become one with the collective.
Wether or not any of this is a good or a bad thing is a call I don't care to make. I know what I think is right and what I think is wrong and I'm going to hold to them until they stop making sense to me.
I can see what you are hinting at, and social networking doesn't ruin anyone's morals or ethics so much so as they give people a platform to exhibit behavior that many people see as socially unacceptable.
