For example, some students make unacceptable decisions which results in not getting a healthy job or even being accepted into college.

These new technologies develop more room for distractions, this prevents others to miss the things from everyday life happening. Due to a person involving their life mainly on social media and letting it lead their daily lives, there is a decrease in the amount of social interactions between others such as family (“Negative Effects” 2). There is less conversations happening between family members due to the addiction of social media.
