Do you ever think about the negative effects social media has on our youth? Everyday social media lowers a teenager’s self-confidence. Teens today are more focused on social media than their school work. Online predators are all over social media looking for their next victim. Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter can cause teens to fall into these negative situations.
Since teenagers spend the majority of their time on social media, there is less time for face to face interaction with family members or loved ones. 47% of social media users with ages between 18 and 34 reported that they use social media or they text during meals. Because they are detached from reality, many relationships can be affected by social media. Also, some of the major negative effect of social media is the lack of privacy and social detriments. Many teenagers are often too open to the public and they may be unaware that their personal information may be hacked and used by other people.
The text,”Student examines negative effects of social media on teens” by Aurelie Krakowsky states,”(social media)..only a distraction to teenagers who have become addicted to checking their news feed.” This makes sense because teens sometimes sit around and do nothing but scroll up and down their feed.

I wish to tell why social media is a dangerous platform that has taken a hold of teenagers lives.
The effect it has on people is evident, and it is taking over the minds of the youth of this generation. The capability social media has over a person can be dangerous and goes unnoticed since everyone in this day and age is brainwashed by it. It produces a negative aspect on humanity by putting the users at constant risk for danger by hindering physical socializing skills and reducing the youth’s intellectual achievement. In addition, it contributes to the lack of physical communication skills that could determine the youth’s future success. All in all, it is clear that adolescents should attempt to disconnect from social media to enjoy the life around them.
