This has caused many people to be unaware of how information is being disseminated and collected through using information about their online behavior and
These two things have created a sense of dependence in millennial that basically we can say that our smartphones and computers are a part of us. We, as a society have made ourselves believe that popularity in social media is basically the most important thing, having billions of followers, likes or retweets is what makes you someone. These image we have created comes with many pros and cons that shape our character towards social media. R.h Sin says “Social media has made us less social, we see the lives of others instead of living our own, dreaming instead of doing, liking what we see while hating what we do.” (Whiskey words and a shovel). We get so involved in other people’s lives, seen what they are doing and posting, that we forget to live our own.
To the majority of teens, the effect of social media has been positive (Chung, 2013). That is in which many individuals, and especially students, use social media in order to access some websites, and get some needed information. Social media also helps keeping people in touch no matter how far they are. “They don’t have to worry about losing touch because social media has it covered” (Chung, 2013, para4). On the other hand, social media has its negative impacts, by which some people use it improperly, and that leads to waste of time.
One of them being the social media, from which you can chat with your friends or you, can use it as a source of entertainment. But many people have argued with us whether it is good for us or bad for us. In the early days of social media, people thought that it actually helped us a lot, for example, we could chat with our friends on the go and people thought it brought people together. As time passes on, questions are being raised on the true impact of social media on teens. I believe that social media is indeed harming today’s teenagers.
Social media is an interactive internet so we can interactive with far distances people. Social media also has many positive impacts and many negative impacts as long as we can use social media very well and we don’t addicted with social media. Social media is a useful tool to people but many people get negative impacts from social media. For the example, envious. We can feel envy with our friends or our cousins in social media.

In this paper, I’ll be talking about social networking sites, what are some of the fundamental features of these sites, their target audience and how they have managed to prove itself to be problematic amongst the youth. 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.
To say that social media is significant today is even an understatement. Communication between people has become so easy nowadays thanks to the use of Social Media. People are able to communicate with one another even if they are in different countries from each other. With the use of internet social media allows its users to transfer information and computer files to their friends and family (Veerasamy, 2013). In contrast, social media has its negative issues as well.
Improving communication skills is one of the positive effects which students are impacted by social media. I’m one of the people who improve their communication skills by social media and particularly Facebook. I was an introvert person who doesn’t not like to speak with any strange people. When I used social media I started to chat with people whom I know and I do not know. Communication is a very important way in forming relationships with the people.
