According to the text,The Upside of Selfies: Social media isn’t all bad for kids”, by Kelly Wallace (CNN)” They want to be able to see, for better or for worse, really quick action and social media allows them to create positive, meaningful change quickly.” The author also states,” ‘Teens and this generation in general want action,’ said Elena Sonnino, a founder of the site Live.Do.Grow, social media strategist and writer who focuses on engaging tweens and teens in using their voice for social good.” This shows that in the first quote that social media is inspiring kids to project their voice, and even in the second quote, it states that kids want action and that teens are using social media to be heard. To wrap it all up, social media isn’t harmful because because it helps kids that have anxiety or have self-image problems, and it gives kids positive feedback, it give teens and children motivation and positive feedback, and social media lets teens voices be
Do you ever think about the negative effects social media has on our youth? Everyday social media lowers a teenager’s self-confidence. Teens today are more focused on social media than their school work. Online predators are all over social media looking for their next victim. Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter can cause teens to fall into these negative situations.
Scrolling down a feed on social media has become one of the most common hobbies of today. It has become so relevant that some turn to it as a distraction and it becomes more of a routine to pick up the phone, then to engage in conversation at social events. Although social media was intended to be used as a way to communicate with friends and family, it has vastly become a negative influence on some younger people. In this technology era, people do not just use social media to chat with people, you can now see updated trends, articles, challenges, and so much more. That being said young adults, teens, and adolescences are being affected by how they use, see, interact and interpret social media in a way that can influence a person 's mental
Social media can only be unsafe or harmful by user judgment. In the database article, “Don’t Listen to the Moral Panic, Social Media is Good for Young.” by Jay Watts, he explains that “No social media platform is intrinsically bad. Rather it is how we encourage young people to use them. There are those with mental health problems who have continuously located SM as beneficial.” The content that people post at times can be harmful to oneself or others. The social media platform itself is not harmful.
The use of social media is one of the main ways people communicate in today’s society. With social media being a main source of communication social media can change someone’s idea of life. Teens are introduced to seeing the life of celebrities, and luxury life. Which can then leave the teens feeling envy, jealousy, and overall insecure. Using social media on a daily basis, without limit can cause a teen to enter a depression.
Proof that Social media has a negative effect on Society While arguments that promote the positivity of social media can be presented, it is evident that they are not substantial, and that social media is in fact negative for relationships in a people group. For instance, Teens and Technology would claim social media expands social circles, which is a positive claim for relationships. However, the authentic truth would reveal “31% of teens who use social media have fought with a friend because of something that happened online” (Lenhart, 2015). For this reason, it can be deducted that while online media produces a public knowledge of other individuals, it also harms existing relationships by generating online turmoil. Another common
However, others say that social media is beneficial for kids because researchers see them expressing themselves on it. There may be some reasons why social media is good for kids, but all and all social media is dangerous to the well-being and education of minors. To start with, social media is dangerous to kids that are online because people can be anonymous, predators, and/or cyberbullies. For example, Hinduja, a professor of criminal justice, at Florida Atlantic University says that about 20% of youth have been either victims or perpetrators of cyberbullying. Also, masking one 's identity on the internet make someone more likely to be a cyberbully (SIRS 1).
The effect it has on people is evident, and it is taking over the minds of the youth of this generation. The capability social media has over a person can be dangerous and goes unnoticed since everyone in this day and age is brainwashed by it. It produces a negative aspect on humanity by putting the users at constant risk for danger by hindering physical socializing skills and reducing the youth’s intellectual achievement. In addition, it contributes to the lack of physical communication skills that could determine the youth’s future success. All in all, it is clear that adolescents should attempt to disconnect from social media to enjoy the life around them.
