Social media sites, seemingly innocent sources of entertainment, can make users feel connected and lonely simultaneously, causing them to embrace their isolation. Social media users isolate themselves by only posting positive aspects of their lives, therefore denying themselves any real chance at a meaningful connection with others. In the article “Why Social Makes Us Even More Lonely,” Mordecai Hunter states, “Despite being constantly connected, people are still feeling alone.” Social media makes people feel more lonely because it gives them the illusion of connectivity. One cannot form and maintain real relationships without allowing others to see their true selves. Hunter acknowledges this, explaining, “there are many people who purposefully craft an image of themselves [...] the lack of openness can lead to bonds not being fully formed.” Without an understanding of someone’s flaws, one cannot understand who they are and connect with them.
In the article “How Facebook Ruins Friendships”, the author Elisabeth Bernstein argues that in the incorrect use of social media is making people grew apart. First, the author states people who keep their online status busy, yet they can still find time for surfing the social media. The other argument she has is when people share very intimate details of themselves on the social media, this sometimes repels away some people. The authors third point of argument was people will continue their argument even they are not in the same room. It really strains their relationships because they are not there to explain themselves.
Modern technology is not always a good thing, sometimes it needs to be limited. Nobody wants to feel as if they are being watched. Truthfully, if they have social media accounts, they are being watched. Facebook’s entire business model revolves around them being able to share your information (Anderson 1). Typically, if companies were caught doing this there would be an outrage.
One of the effects for social networking addiction is spending too much time to online. People will use a lot of time in social network such as they will always post status and photo in Facebook and instagram, stalking others people status and so on. 1.

People need to stop relying on technology in order to counteract the habits acquired through the use of technology that have made people, as a whole, dumber. Social Media has changed the way people go through their daily lives and using it can cause issues. In fact, it can cause anxious and nervous people depending on the environment (Sanders 19). Also, if people use technology for a great amount of time, they start to get uncomfortable talking to people in social and business situations (“Technology and Society”). Technology makes people not want to think, but to just look
This may be true and their argument is valid, nevertheless, all the negative impacts on one’s physical as well as mental health and social life outweigh the mentioned advantages. Social media has various negative impacts on the physical well being. Excessive use of social media can jeopardize our health. First of all, it should be mentioned that the Internet, for instance, takes time away: instead of morning exercises, one would rather read some new portion of news or check e-mail. People are always staring at their smartphones either for reason or for no reason at all.
Now a days, you can see people of all ages tapping away at their electronics. They are always using social media or other things, but most importantly, social media. According to “Teenage Social Media Butterflies May Not Be Such a Bad Idea” by Melissa Healy and “Antisocial Media” by Hilary Stout, They both talked about social media taking over the lives of children. They also describe how children cannot develop empathy for others or understand different emotions. How I feel about social media is that it is not good for children to use because it can affect them in the future.

They are lack of inter-personnel communicational skills and they are having thefeeling of independence that is associated with social media where there is no parental control and also elevation of their social status among the peers, where one has many followers on the social network. This will change their attitudes and sometimes they will lose their connection with family members as they are wasting time on those sites. It may direct them to unwanted contents as well as to unwanted
Said “shannon Poppito, a phychologist at baylor medical university in Dallas”states that when people spend more time in social media, they break off the relationship from real life end up feeling less connected with them selves. According to myself as an example of anti-social make us not confident when showing ourselves in front of others and cause confidence to decline. This is because social media users become lazy to learn to communicate real , just share and interect in the virtual world. For example when someone is in the cafe opening social media sites they often forget the time. The second, cybercrime through social media is increasing because many are accessing the internet, such as kidnapping through social media facebook.
Obviously, hate speech is a part of virtual world because of poor censored content and existence of huge number of unknown or fake accounts. When, children face hate speech in social media, they may adsorb such behavior and start to trust people less considering the case in virtual world to be identical to the real-life situations. For a number of children, being online for long duration may cause addiction. As Wu (2013) points out having game application inside social media site can increase the chance of game addiction alongside addiction to social network itself. Such children feel the urge of checking their status on both game and the site which isolates them from real world.
