The first thing I do is illustrate today’s situation of social media with some research findings with specific aspects of focus. Technology are the possible consequence for our social behavior, there are many different interpretations related to social media. The way that people think is also part of the technology and the influence of social media. Social networks are social structures that serve as means of communication, to facilitate the dissemination of messages in information channels, shortening distances and times of sending messages, all this facilitating kinship relations, personal relationships, organizational relationships,
The world as we know it today is dynamic in nature, and technological advancements and the use of social media has facilitated the re-shaping of the way the society deals with things. In other words, we now thrive in a connected world.

Have you ever thought about the negative effects social media has on the youth of today? Maybe you’ve become so engrossed in social media that you’ve never realised how much time you spend scrolling through Facebook and how that time could be better used?
