Generally, when we speak of being bullied, we often refer to the devastation someone has faced and its consequences. However, in today’s society the odds of being publicly humiliated are fairly slim, as students and peers are venting towards social media for revenge. But with Smart-Tech I am offering you security by allowing you to freely control what is to be aired on your social media devices. Social media, which was developed to facilitate communication and entertainment has lost its sole purpose, due to the improvements in technology that are supposedly developing our lives. However, this technology that we have created has become the ultimate form of bettering standard of living; and to me any mechanism that can be used for such, can also be used to control.
Social networking describes the phenomena found in, participatory and self-expressive websites such as Facebook, Twitter, My space, and Youtube. Social media is becoming an ubiquitous in today’s society and today’s youth are spending a great deal of time using some sites to access in a public life. Social media 1 Negative effects of social media on education A lot of students are using some sites that can distract them from their doings especially on their studies. Yes, social media gives everything what a person will need. Social media is a great way to have a person communicating with another person but we also do know that it could give us a big impact that could be problem to our studies.
Chapter 1 Background of the Study Introduction In the contemporary world, most people use social media for news, entertainment, to seek information and to be updated every day. Nowadays, the use of social media has greatly changed how people interact with other people. Today, most people only consider the benefits that the social media brought to the people without thinking about the possible negative implications of using it. Youth today are very inclined in using social media. Most of the students tend to believe that social media helps them a lot in terms of learning, studying, researching and finding information.
In some states like California and Illinois, legislators have proposed bills that will penalize recording bystanders, because their actions, regardless of the intent encourage the evil acts. After all, when individuals post these videos online they contribute to the growing cyber bullying threat. This is not to say, that all individuals that post online, intend to cause harm to victims but to make them more aware of their actions and cause them to think before they act and possibly,
Even adding trigger warnings when it is necessary shuts down areas of discussion. Students should freely defend their own ideas and explore the opinions of others (Filipovic). Ultimately a trigger warning has less positive aspects but has greater negative contributions in the
In many university, students can see hate speech either posted on walls or online which directly hurt the minority people. However, students are big part of population and they are also in an unstable period which at risk of psychological harm. Therefore, university should regulate people’s speech to offer a safe and positive place to live and study. If not, hate speech can rise into hate crime which will not only disturb other students but also trouble the whole life on that students. Even though we need to protect our freedom of speech, freedom is relative but hate speech shut up conversation which has no help on finding the truth and discussion.
To examine the problem of stereotypes and their impact on people, more information on this topic should be provided. Stereotype, according to the Oxford Dictionary, is „a widely held, but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing”. Studies show that people, who think of themselves as open and free of prejudice, are also the victims of the using stereotypes practice, because they are deeply rooted in our minds. There are, though not many, compared to the negative, possitive sides of stereotyping. Even though challenging stereotypes seem to be pointless, many people try.
The lack of protection could make them vulnerable to the harsh world of the internet. Harsh people these days tend to show no mercy since they could care less about the opposing person 's feelings. Other than that, they become influenced to continue wrongdoings because others encourage it through their actions. Not only does the internet encourage violence, it can change the thought process of children. In usual cases, children tend to instantly believe almost everything that seems to make sense to them.
They can use any methods which may cause terrible damage for the sufferers’ mind, just to diminish the social status of whom they are bullying. In general, the goal to be achieved is raising and spreading their own power and dishonoring the others. Lastly, the motivation of online bullying is to ease the boredom. It may not surprising that the minority of perpetrators see this cruelty as the source of entertainment and others are too cowed to protest. These people may lack attention and supervision from relatives, so they start leaning on the
We live in the time where social media is the main medium of communication. Twenty-first century learners spend a lot of free time online. They use it extensively to get global access. It becomes a raging craze for everyone nowadays. Although social media may have change the world for the better, it may also cause distraction to students, it changes the way they interact with others and it causes psychological changes or other health problems.
As technology and ways to communicate change and improve our youth will be guinea pigs and test the waters. Along with social media, today’s youth has to conform to what is expected. I feel like teens need the reinforcement of being “liked” now in order to feel good about themselves. They could post anything on the internet as long as they think it will make them more popular and get the most “likes”. The values of Americans have changed, we feel the need to exploit ourselves in order to feel like we belong.
Particularly, the negative images promoted by the media raise concerns regarding the degree to which media should be subjected to censorship . The use of profanity, violence, and negative imagery in all forms of popular media has become commonplace in today’s society. Such nonchalant promotion of said images in public media has negatively impacted the minds of people, and this carelessness could be linked to an increase in self-destructive behavior and violence. Consequently, there should be a stronger censorship of detrimental imagery in today’s media because the ideals expressed in the popular media influence audiences to make irresponsible choices, and millions of young people are influenced by the media of today’s society. First, a stronger media censorship should be adopted because the ideals found in media are embedded in the listener’s and/or viewer’s mind, which results in them making irresponsible and negligent choices.
A bystander is someone who would just stand and watch someone get bullied and not do anything about it. Someone might want to help but don’t know how or is scared. Others may just stand back and want to watch or maybe even step in and join the bully. They could be physically or mentally bullying, but either way it can still hurt someone’s feelings. Cyber bullying is when you get online, either on a game or texting, and you start saying mean things to someone.
