The more the bully tortures the victim, the more his or her self-confidence declines. Victims may actually start to believe what the bully says and begin to think they are weak, worthless, and ugly. This may result for the victims to have social anxiety. Victims may isolate themselves from everyone, including friends and families. Having confident in you is very important and it allows us to be comfortable and enjoy life.
Occasionally, social media can help us with homework, and allow us to communicate with others. Yet, despite its positive impact, it also has negative influences on society. Look at all the people who have their ears plugged with earphones, fingers flying, and a distraught look on their face when their parents tell them to do something.

The use of social media can lower teens self esteem because they can feel that they need to meet society’s standards. Statistics have shown that social media has caused teens depression and can lead them to eating disorders. In Australia, there was an interactive lesson testing social media and self confidence. But, it was shown that females didn't really benefit from the lesson and showed low self esteem. This could be from bullying and pressure from social media.
This is because people do not understand how to avoid these topics and social media sites can easily find a way to minimize these situations. “Clearly social media is inadvertently leaving youth susceptible to become overly self-conscious, anxious and ultimately depressed” (Amedie 5). Lack of trust and comfort leads to anxiety and depression. “Social media is robbing us of trust and comfort we once placed in one another, replacing the human fellowship, physical and emotional support we once drew from each other with virtual connection” (Amedie 4). Social media has supposedly caused people to be antisocial which could lead to anxiety because of the fear to interact with another person.
Rebbeca Wever states “the tendency to check social media in our downtime, when we're more likely to be self-reflective, can make for some ugly juxtapositions” This is stating that teens often use social media in their down time when they have little to do, seeing things like models, celebrities, people traveling the world, or the clothes they have. Makes them gain lower self-esteem, thinking the way they’re living life or the things they’re doing aren’t enough. “There's a reason that teenagers in particular are prone to the feverish pursuit of valuation via social media. Prinstein says it's because the wide variety of regions in the brain that seek and deliver social rewards, including the part of the striatum called the nucleus accumbens, become supercharged at the adolescent transition. “( ) Social Rewards is common in teens, it’s similar to the feeling of being liked by everyone.
Narcissistic people are not fun to be around for a long period of time, but they are not typically a danger to anyone else. It is such a common trait today with the ablation from social media, most narcissist surround themselves with others like themself, which gives this disorder a sense of normalcy. Personally and professionally, narcissism hinders genuine connections with people.

The false perception of life portrayed all over social media is misleading towards teens it can show you one thing and be the other leaving the other person embarrassed or seriously messed up depending the issue. Not only is social media misleading, it is also very unimportant. A majority of the posts are extremely insignificant and unimportant to our world today but its relevant because of the social media.

Social Media has impacted and affected teens in a pretty negative way with the technology we have today. Social media is too distracting for teens/college students because of the constant feel to need to be on their medias. While using social media, in order to sign up for the sites teens have to put a lot of personal information, leading to my point there is no privacy while using these social media sites.

Social media is becoming a huge issue on high school and college students, students are becoming way too attached to it that making students dependent on social media, followed along with not allowing people with social media much privacy,
What social media is doing to teens Social media is a very dangerous place that makes teens feel insecure. Teens spend more than one-third of their day on social media looking at stereotypical images of “perfect” bodies and people. As a result, they become insecure about themselves because they are not like the people in the pictures. The media states that a perfect person is skinny, tan, has shiny hair, straight teeth, and completely clear skin. However, because teens are going through a lot of physical changes they do not usually look like social media 's definition of perfect and they become insecure.
Many people around the world have insecurities that they don’t like sharing in person, rather via social media. Social media can create a side of people others have never seen and it can help someone cope with their problems and help feel more confident with their
