Jumping from a useless text message to a whole other video about love, the internet is full of distractions, and the last thing one would notice is their original work that is due. According to the Bonnie Rochman, a health care writer on the internet, kids our age who use Facebook typically do much worse in school. That is because of distractions that won’t occur naturally when the internet is shut off. Research has found that many students in middle school, high school, and sometimes even in collage who checked social media at least once during a study period got a significant lower grade. While the book focuses our brain, social media and the unknown internet scatters it.
The internal problems on the main character of Paulo Coelho’s, Veronika Decides to Die (2005) analyzed based from the interpersonal-psychological theory by Ribeiro , J. D. & Joiner, T. E. et al.

In this work he argues that an intimate and utterly personal moment in an individual’s life can be explained through the collective lenses (Durkheim, 1897). Unless an individual is mentally ill, suicides are always a reaction to external factors. This is, according to Durkheim, because “when society is disturbed, either by a painful crisis or by fortunate, but too sudden transformations, it becomes provisionally incapable of exercising its function; hence those shape rises in the figures for suicide,” (Suicide, p. 276) in what might be indicative of the power instituted in society. Not only does this reflect the precarious role that autonomy plays in determining an individual’s wellbeing but also of their particular helplessness within the framework of society. Although one would assume that the rise of individualism might have been a mitigating factor in Durkheim’s view on the control society exerts over the individual, he construed it as a testament to its pervasiveness.
There are several forms of social media, there are blogs, micro-b logs, wikis, social networking sites, photo-sharing sites, instant messaging, video-sharing sites, podcasts, widgets, virtual worlds, and more. (Brown & Wanda, 2002) There are some who debate whether it is improving or crippling communication skills. Sitting behind a computer communicating with cyber friends can be easy and fun but can weaken a person 's verbal communication skills. I won 't just spotlight on the negative effects on social media because there are some positive effects on communication through social media.

B. (2007).
Additionally, this essay has looked at future consequences. When students start to use the social networking, there are several positive results. First of all, social media can help to reduce wasted time, because it can help students to find information more efficiently. Several decades ago, when students had homework they would struggle to find the relevant information on the internet. Organizations have been found to differ (Siddiqui and Singh, 2016).

According to Oxford Dictionaries (British and World English, 2015), social media is defined as “websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.” Social media also known as social networking site, it is also a platform for users to express their own thought and information. Teenagers are more likely to use social networking site such as Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.

With the advent of web 2.0, it has managed to create another new environment where the users can actively participate and generate content on their own, as opposed to web 1.0 which wasn’t interactive in nature (Bruns, 2008). The driving forces for individuals to sign up on SNS are because their friends recommend them, everyone they know use it, for entertainment purposes and to know more people. Wasike and Cook (2010) say, “Never before have so many people gathered to communicate through a single medium.” (pg.1). The moment one signs up on Facebook, it asks the user to fill out forms regarding their personal information.

The excessive use of mobile phones causes students to fare poorly in elementary, junior high and high school, not only because it makes them lose their concentration due to a lack of sleep, but also because it apparently compromises what they have studied, researchers say. Students who spend several hours each day staring into mobile phones or smartphones tend to change their sleeping habits and stay up late to use the education. This research was conducted November 23, 2015, with 139 participants from the fifth grade of primary school up to the third year of high school, at 771 public schools nationwide. Safety has become a major concern for parents who are trying to keep control of their children in an increasingly busy and distracting world.
