Certainly, this phenomenon caused many young people feel lonely and disconnected in the real life. Moreover, make teenager feel lonely is not caused by only one single reason. Social medias provide a wild stage to let people share their life and self-promotion themselves, hence the users attract by that and become overweening pride. On the other hand, they feel disappointed to their own life and become painful by viewing others showing off. Nonetheless, social medias are not the one to be blame, in the high technology generation young people lost their self-awareness is also a reason they become fragile and feel isolated.
Social media features many benefits from convenience to better networking. However, some scholars warn of the possibility of addiction to social media. They believe that it may lead to “socially negative consequences such as social isolation, erosion of social cohesion” (Baek, Young and Jang 512). Social media is part and parcel of everyday life nowadays, and therefore the danger of addiction is imminent. Addiction affects not only a person and his or her family, but also society as well.
From cyberbullies to predators, users of ages are not immune to the negative effects of social media. Moreover, many relationships are negatively affected as the importance of engaging in social media takes precedence over being “there” in person. As scripture reminds us, “Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:25 ESV). Therefore, it is imperative that social media use is not only monitored, but the usage is limited. Parents must lead by example and do this by limiting social media use and setting boundaries and demonstrating the importance of being present for loved
The Negative Impact from Social Media Social media is something so beneficial yet comes with so many consequences. It was created and intended to be used as a different form of communication but as time goes on people have begun to use not only social media but the internet in their own ways such as, keeping their toddlers from throwing another tantrum, or binge watching the latest season of their favorite show. It’s amazing that we can do all of this with such a small device now but the impact it leaves can be very damaging. Anything on social media or even our own devices, is never private. To expand on that a little more, many companies sell your information to other companies that will benefit from it.
Can you sit down and have a conversation with someone without looking over to your phone? Like everything in life there is always a positive and negative side. Technology has improved many of our lives but it is taking over our habits. Social media Is taking away time from our everyday lives, friends and family; It brings us apart from excessive use. It causes less communication although it is supposed to keep us more connected.
However, technology has made a great impact in our lives, it also has made a not-so-great impact and is leading teens to very serious situations.For example, technology such as iPads, iPods, cell phones, and tablets are becoming so dangerous it is causing people to gain health issues, “Constantly looking down at devices can cause neck pain and overtime will cause the neck to lose its natural curve.”(Sheri Hosel)Furthermore, as much as we use technology without even noticing it is harming society as a whole. Most people don 't even realize how much damage can be caused by constantly looking at a screen but really, the list of health conditions that technology is causing for us goes on and on. Technology needs to take a step down and we need to focus on helping out teens for our their own benefits.Additionally, technology isn 't the only issue, its whats on the devices, such as social media that are causing violence, “The increase in cyberbullying has additionally led to an increase in teen suicides”(Ashley Steve) Health issues caused by technology are big problems but, bullying and suicides are a whole different story. The fact that they are letting these issues happen is sad, it is teens against technology. And right now they are letting technology take them over, this needs to be put to an end!
Although social media grants citizens to contact others and see what they are doing, but is it really worth the hassle just to see what the rest of the population is doing? Even though the general public accredits social media with social enhancement, it actually has a negative impact on humanity due to technology addiction, promotion of cyberbullying, and lack of sleep.
Virtual Lonesome Disorder Only you can help stop virtual lonesome disorder. Millions of people suffer from VLD (Virtual lonesome disorder). Which is a disorder that isolates people that are addicted to the Internet. Unfortunately in our modernized world today; technological devices have become an essential part of our lives and have made global communication possible. As it connects us to people around the world, it fills up the gap between us and our loved ones who are far away from us But Technology has not increased the quality of communication as many people are quick to believe; rather, it has caused it to decline.
Recent studies in the United States found that 90-95% of American teens use social media on a regular basis (Yust). As humans choose to become immersed in social media, rather than interact with others, opportunities for growth are lost and hours of precious time becomes wasted. How might one’s life be positively impacted without ever experiencing social media? Although social media is addicting, appealing, and often convenient, people do not realize the negative effects that result as a whole. With an overall perspective, social media negatively affects people in mental well-being, educational growth, and communication skills.
Grievously, the sad truth is that most teenagers lack the mental self-discipline and willpower to resist the urge of short-term satisfaction for long-term satisfaction. This inevitably leads to procrastination, which in turn leads to, as you mentioned, a decay in the quality of ‘priorities like schoolwork and homework’. On the other hand regulated and monitored usage would possibly enable the child or teenager to increase their productivity. Consequently, I believe that the usage of the internet and social networks can be beneficial when regulated or monitored by either parents or a trusted elder or guardian. The point you conveyed regarding social media users creating a ‘distorted self-image’ ‘in order to develop a perfect’ self-image, at the major expense of ‘staying true to who we really are’.
