They use it to collaborate with friends and family when they need it. In conclusion, I think that social media is bad for children because they are too young to use it and they will not be able to make new friends or do anything if they keep staying on social media. Social media should just be used by adults and teens, but teens do have limits.Most social media applications also have a rating so that only adults can use it. That is what I think about social media. I hope that i changed your thought about social media being good for
The internet has many uses and can teach us many great things but letting children use it can lead to bad things, such as changes in attitude, thought process and general health conditions. It could corrupt their minds in ways that may not be suitable for the youth. An example of negative access to the internet would have to violence. Violence through online access is very common these days, considering some children are not aware of what others think of them. The lack of protection could make them vulnerable to the harsh world of the internet.
Studies show a correlation between increased social media usage and depression and this can be of many reasons; first of is cyber-bullying. Many teenagers have been a victim of cyber-bullying and this is increasing, as bullies on social media don’t realize the damage of their words and actions as it is online. Many teenagers believe that what they say on social platforms doesn’t really matter, but what truly matters is what is said in face-to-face interactions. This is because people cannot see what’s happening on the other end of the screen therefore they post mean comments not realizing the damage they have done. The American College of Pediatricians “The Media, Children, and Adolescents” stated that “over half of adolescents state they have been bullied online and over 25 percent of adolescents state they have been bullied repeatedly through internet or on cell phones.” Secondly, when teenagers go on social platforms they compare their lives to filtered and unrealistic posts of their peers, this leads to envy of others and tends to produce feelings of depression which then transforms into major depression.
Some people prefer that social media have some good effects for children, while others believe that social media only can harm children. In the ultimate analysis. Actually, on balance analysis, I agree that social media causes bad effects for teenager because social media take up a lot of time for children to study, and have a bad influence on the development of their body and mind health. Parents wonder if their children’s constant use of Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat is healthy. Teenagers talk about the pressure to post the perfect photo or to compete with the perfect lives their friends present on the Internet.
But extensive use of something does not necessarily mean addiction, which exists only when an activity interferes with a person 's ability to function normally in aspects of life”(Stanton Peele 18). People get no work done during their jobs because of being distracted by social media. People can use social media in multiple ways.“4/5 American teens carry a wireless device and 57 percent say that such devices have improved their lives. Teens use their cell phones for texting and nearly half believe that without one, their social lives would be worse or would end completely”(Harris Interactive 13). People can be so rude to others to the point of hurting one another.
Some teenagers use the Internet to avoid their problems.Once they do not have the Internet, something bad might happen to them. Since they are using it to hide and avoid the problems that is why there is a bad outcome once there is no Internet. There is also cyber bullying and misuse of Internet. These problems might even make problems worse. Might cause for those who do not have problems cause them to get a
Most teenagers find their time of seclusion when they are on their phones. Once their privacy is limited, teens are willing to do anything to gain it back, which can lead to rebellious actions and possibly illegal activities. There are many dangers on the web that can harm them so yes, you should apply spyware, but make your child aware or he/she might feel as though you don’t trust them. Let your child know that you trust them, but you want to make sure that they’re safe while surfing the web
The young people prefer building relationships online where they can communicate with as many people as they wish without having to meet the people that they claim to be close. Notably, the youths wish to access those that they are in a relationship when they wish and get the immediate feedback through the digital technology (Howard & Katie, 2009). Howard and Katie assert that the use of digital media encourage shallow relationships because the youths over-depend on the technology for communication without meeting to seek understanding of each other. Additionally, they tend to pretend when using digital media for communication and they may not reveal their beliefs and values to the ones that they are in relationships for fear of provoking them. The authors assert that the use of digital media prevents adolescents from joining with their family members because they tend to be busy in using technology to communicate with the people who are far away.
Evidence shows that ordinary people are struggling with an addiction to their status online, which causes them to be distracted from the relationships around them. Along with this, depression has taken a presence among the social media population due to the pressure and comparison that comes from the public eye. Another startling aspect of social media is the permanent consequence that can come from controversial decisions, such as tweeting about transgender agendas or sending nude photos. While some people view the aspects of connectivity and business expansion that social media present as crucial to society, they are really not as important as commonly understood. Along with this, online networking provides a tendency for users to present themselves to man and not to God, which goes against what scripture teaches.
One of the effects for social networking addiction is spending too much time to online. People will use a lot of time in social network such as they will always post status and photo in Facebook and instagram, stalking others people status and so on. 1. Spending too much of time to social networking will cause people especially students poor in academic. a.
