In brief: Be present/engaged

Depends on age but in this case you have to join and not beat.
Put a limit on what they have access to and how many hours a day they do it, but be present in whatever they do. If age appropriate they will be on facebook, twitter and text. Unfortunately it is the new "phone call", but let them know you need face to face time and they have to still learn the proper social graces and etiquettes.
