Thus, technology disbands one 's relations with the family (Howard & Katie, 2013). On a positive note, though, the authors indicate that the use of social media continues to make it easy for the adolescents to keep in touch with their friends and acquaintances. However, the closeness that the youth creates through the social media may not lead to deeper relationships (Howard & Katie,
Studies show a correlation between increased social media usage and depression and this can be of many reasons; first of is cyber-bullying. Many teenagers have been a victim of cyber-bullying and this is increasing, as bullies on social media don’t realize the damage of their words and actions as it is online. Many teenagers believe that what they say on social platforms doesn’t really matter, but what truly matters is what is said in face-to-face interactions. This is because people cannot see what’s happening on the other end of the screen therefore they post mean comments not realizing the damage they have done. The American College of Pediatricians “The Media, Children, and Adolescents” stated that “over half of adolescents state they have been bullied online and over 25 percent of adolescents state they have been bullied repeatedly through internet or on cell phones.”
Because most of the time teenagers communicate via text and Facebook instead of writing a letter or picking up the phone, they are subconsciously harming the part of the brain that allows them to have meaningful conversations face to face. It worsens for the generation that were born from 2005 on, as this means social media is all they grew up with. Even for teenagers in high school, social media still played a major part in their influential maturing years that the early years when social media wasn’t known, don’t count towards anything. For instance, studies show that 3 in 5 students are abbreviating their words to acronyms without even realizing (Jasmine Fowlkes

Social Media and Its Impact on Interpersonal Communications Before cell phones, people were forced to either write letters or meet face-to-face to get a message delivered. However, there has been a major shift in the way we communicate due to the introduction of social media sites. Instead of the formal face-to-face interactions people were accustomed to, we have now developed an addiction to communication on social media networks. This has affected many social media users in numerous ways, whether it is poor mental health or poor sleep, social media is creating a communication skill gap. Being behind a screen takes away the necessary time the youth must use to build onto their communication skills and learn communication methods.
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.

Senator has a logical main point and her arguments have reasonable basis, even though she justifies most of her arguments with her own experiences. There are a lot of studies and rumours regarding teenagers’ use of the internet and the social-media’s supposed threat to the young people’s ability to concentrate. Most adults do not have experiences with the internet and social media from a young age, but teenagers these days do. As Susan Senator implies, it is hypocritical of adults to worry so much about young people’s internet use, while not considering their own at all. Underestimating the youth’s comprehension of what the social-media involves is insulting and degrading.
Annotated Bibliography Growing up digital: How the Internet affects teen identity Teens are often stressed and seeking validation, and they may look for that validation online through social media. This validation is “a vital part of how teens form identity” (Johnson 2014) according to psychologist Catherin Steiner-Adair. Social media allows teens and children to advertise their lives and expose them to choices and actions that were not available to previous generations. Although the method of looking for validation has changed, the reaction teens have has not. Without a fully developed prefrontal cortex, teens have less impulse control and therefore are more likely to disassociate cyberbullying from their “real lives.”
