Audience of reality television are in the range of teens to young adults which makes them more vulnerable to be manipulated. Audiences that watch reality television are more likely than audiences who do not watch reality television to perceive gossiping and trash talking as a normal part of relationship because it is in their nature to be competitive or spiteful with one another. These audiences also believe that being successful requires being meaning and lying to get what they want (Weller, 2014). There is a positive correlation between viewers watching reality television and their behaviour/attitudes towards real
People who access the Internet have become routine functions — sending email, writing blogs, and posting photos and information about themselves on social networking sites. They do not realize how much of their personal privacy, their identities are putting at risk. These sites usually claim that they are collecting customers ' information for registration use. However, according to a research of Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data posted in September, 67% of investigated websites or apps would collect private personal data of teenagers including name, birthday, contact number, address and photos. More than half of them would even shared these data with third parties.
With this in mind, many adults, teenagers, and even children use social media all the time, so businesses can promote their businesses to larger audiences. For instance, according to “A Framework for Analyzing the Potential Benefits of Internet Marketing”, internet marketing is available “24 hours a day, 7 days a week’ which allows for “more interaction”, “better customer services”, and “quicker responses” (Kiang and Chi 158). On the contrary, opponents are incorrect because most individuals do not pay attentions to advertisements displayed on their screens since many are focused on other items. Specifically, IPG’s research shows, “65 percent of people skip online video advertising, and they do as soon as they get the chance” (Handley). Thus, advertising workplaces online will most likely not earn as much of a profit as a traditional way of promoting
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. Usage of social media has become a daily routine for the youth and according to a survey, 22% of teenagers are active on their favorite social media site and spend more than 10 times a day. Teenagers with ages between 12-17 reported that text messages are used the most than any other form of communication, including real life interactions. A big part of the generation’s social and emotional development occurs on the internet and they engage with screens almost the entire day and in places such as cars, restaurants, and holidays and even in their bedroom .

“By 2004 senior citizens were four times more likely to watch network news every night than those under 30 in the past week.” Wattenberg uses this statistic to represent the current age gap in nightly news. Alternatively, it can be argued that young people are not interested in nightly news because of the numerous other options we have on television. Personally, i'd way rather watch a movie than watch what's going on in the world, where they discuss the same things over and over. I think young people would rather check Twitter or Facebook for news, where it can be easily read and understood. Furthermore, implementing a fine on the American people seems almost anti-democratic in the sense that it limits your choice to not
While reality TV shows have increased amongst the population, it is still questioned if it is influential or negatively impacted today. Content I will be focusing on the socialization agent of reality TV shows and how they influence teenagers. Reality shows have negatively impacted teenagers today in society, from famous shows like Keeping up with the Kardashians and Jersey Shore. These television shows have bombarded teenagers to act and replicate these celebrities. These TV shows bring on a lot of sex appeal, material things, and money wants in
As pornography is so abundant in the modern society of over 26 million sites and more, detrimental psychology effects can’t be avoided. Dated back in 1895 with the invention of motion picture and the immergence of pornographic films, the sales of magazines dropped to 50 and continued to decline in 1980’s as pornography shifted from images to digital videos. Laws may require a person to be within the minimum age to access these pornographic materials but this doesn’t seem to hold true since internet pornography these days are quite abundant of over 1.3 billion images of materials that the user hasn’t seen before. Although pornography is addictive among male adolescent, the detrimental psychological effects are serious because the relationship
“Prosecutors also have complaints: They say the shows can make it more difficult for them to win convictions in the large majority of cases in which scientific evidence is irrelevant or absent” (Willing, 30). Willing also mentions how popular the CSI type shows have become. “CSI and a spinoff, CSI: Miami (which is about to begin its third season), have drawn an average of more than 40 million viewers a week during the past TV season.” (Willing, 62). Lastly, Willing points out how many more students have been drawn to the forensic science field due to these types of shows. Television shows deeply influence their viewers.
Is binge watching really that bad? The last couple of years various streaming entities such as Netflix and Hulu gained major popularity, not only among teenagers but in our whole society. These programs offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies which enables people to watch whole seasons of their favorite TV show, in one week if they want to. The phenomenon of watching multiple episodes of a TV show in one sitting is called binge watching. Lately everyone has been going on and on about how binge watching is so harmful and how it is ruining this generation of teenagers, but is it really?
It’s the family movie night where everyone “watches the movie” all while texting, instant messaging, and playing games on their phones. Multitasking, as most know, is becoming a larger problem as technology continues to expand. You always hear that it is affecting teenagers and kids, and that is true. However, us teenager aren’t the only ones falling victim to the perpetual cycle of multitasking. Believe it or not, multitasking is actually more dangerous for adults.
Technology is an ever present force in today’s modern society. Many people never leave home without a cellphone or check the newest trending Twitter topics every hour. It is sad to say that some people spend more time on social media than with the people who matter most: friends and family. In “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury, a man is arrested while on a walk because the man is going against the rest of society by not spending every waking moment glued to a television. This story plays a bigger role than Bradbury could have imagined because more and more people are spending more and more time online or watching Netflix than interacting with real humans.
Do you think social media is good for America? Well I don’t think it’s good for our society because if you u take a look at the article ‘’Are Social Networks Messing with Your Head’’ made by David DiSalvo and in his article he talks about people in America is getting too addicted to social media. In the year of 2009 Nielson Online reported that 70 million Facebook members in the US spent 233 million hours on the app in 2009. That was 6 years ago can u picture the number now that we have more technology like cell phones that can now give off out location and etc. That’s why social media is bad for our society if u can just think about it kids, teens, and adults all post things like their pictures their location and sometimes where they live on social media.
