In the event this happens, “it becomes our responsibility, then, as educators, to prepare our students/citizens, to learn how to use, consume, and to have personal power over the media” (Reynolds, 2012). If we cannot stop them from viewing popular culture, then we should at least teach them to analyze what they view. We should not let them be just idle receivers, blind consumers that absorb and believe everything they see on media. We need to teach them how to think, how to infer, how to draw meaningful conclusions out of the things that they are constantly exposed to. We should make them see how popular culture reflects society, the world and their own identities.
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.

I cannot believe that kids do everything to become famous and be liked by others and they do not even see that brands are using them to sell their products.
Technology being a fairly recent addition to today’s society, its sub-unit social media has a profound effect on today’s youth more than we realize. Which, begs the question, has today’s youth become addicted to social media? Douglas Rushkoff, a professor of media studies at the New School University, in New York, director and writer of the television documentary, “Generation Like” (2014), agrees on the claim that today’s youth has become so profoundly infused in the world of social media that they do not comprehend the magnitude of how much it influences many aspects of their everyday lives and of their friends and family. On one hand, social media makes the younger generations feel empowered, but on the other, it shows the effects of how
“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? Exploitation is a strong word, but, the terms are not fair, and at the end of the day, someone will have to win. At this point in time, it is the companies who are benefiting the most and are winning. Not only have advertising professionals learned exactly how young people share, but they've also learned just what drives them to share their content and promote their goods and
She created a society in which women wanted to live in. Women had found this new society appealing so they had begun to endorse women’s activism and fought against their suffrages by taking on jobs that men typically held, gaining an education, and taking a stand to end female
People have learned about conditioning due to Pavlov and John Watson. Becoming conditioned is easier now because of the devices in people 's hands. Conditioning is a bigger problem in adolescence. Due to social media, there have been more deaths because of bullying. People are becoming more conditioned to check their media accounts.
The younger generations see activities that celebrities are doing and suppose it is acceptable for them to do too. Communication isn't just exposing things to parents, it is also for the kids. An icon can act in a disobedient manner and the situation will be projected to the whole world. They are idols to many and now what they did could become a trend. With all the bad things kids are seeing, they could possibly start doing it too.
Crowdsourcing enables a company to reach a broad audience in a short period of time and involve them into the process of problem solving. The created solutions represent the taste of many individuals and have a high impact on the likeability of the product since the consumers of the goods are themselves the product creator, which leads to an increase in sales of the created product.

Usage of Youtube negatively affects teenagers causing them struggles in life. Youtube has been affecting teenagers safety, school work, and life style. Youtube is great yet it creates a giant distraction for teens. Youtube may be one the greatest teaching tools there could be available out there right now. You go onto to it, search up what you’re researching about and if there 's a video available about your topic, you watch the video and someone literally tells you all the information you need, and if you don’t find what you’re looking for you look to the side for other video clips.
Regular posters on these medias, also suggest a desperation for validation, as a new photo creates stigma around the poster and boosts their ego. Studies show that endlessly browsing social media can mean that a person has narcissistic tendencies and may have an internet addiction. Studies also show that people who post more and feel compelled to overshare about their lives, and even sometimes lie to make them seem more interesting, are probably narcissistic. If someone feels the need to lie to make themself feel better, action should be taken,
