Technology may keep us in touch,but it can rip us apart from society. People overuse social media all the time and people start to depend on it more and more and they start to isolate themselves from society. That’s what causes depression, anxiety, and social awkwardness. Although technology may keep us in contact with family and friends, it’s also the root to many different types of evil that you probably never thought would happen to you. Social media and networking provides a distraction from life. Social media spreads information faster than any other media. However social media enables the spread of false information and 64% of people that use twitter have experienced the same thing.

Students who used social media while studying scored 20% lower on tests. This shows that students isolate themselves so much it affects quality of their work, GPAs, and test scores. This proves that they isolate themselves so much it even affects the socially because how can you just start to flunk in school but yet your still able to talk to other people face to face. You can’t because if you were able to you wouldn’t be doing bad in school.
