“I thought marketers would hide their strategy.” So, what do we make of this blossoming form of social media marketing? Is it fair to label it exploitation of the teenagers who, having grown up in “Generation like,” know no other way of life?

My positive reaction to the film is that finally somebody showed how social media is controlling teenagers. I consider this a positive reaction because now young adults will see how brand are in control today with the help of social media. My negative reaction to this film is that unfortunately, teenagers will think that being shown in the film is cool and they will continue to follow the young adults that come out in the film and continue to be obsessed with likes.

Younger generations are using social media to connect with others that share similar opinions to help bring attention to relevant matters.
Teens feel the need to always be on social and see what is going on in everybody else’s lives. Teens use social media to get out what teens have to say and love to put all of their business out there for everyone to see. This can be a huge distraction to teens if someone does not quite agree with what is posted and comments some negative words while teens may be trying to do some school work. In an article by Richard Webster, he states that teens being bullied or harassed on social media often lead to depression, anxiety, or even suicide. ¨Over 80 percent of teens use cell phones regularly” making most teens at risk for this (Crelin, Joy.

How Social Media Effects Teenagers The How and Why of Choosing the Subject My goal for this project is to inform teenagers about the risks associated with social media and how they can avoid it. Teens have turned social media into a crutch for verbal social contact.
