The Bad Effects of Social Media addict for Teenagers It is undeniable that nowadays increasingly sophisticated like the existence of social media that has been widespread in society, especially for teenagers. Although social media allows teenagers to interact socially whenever and wherever, unfortunately, spending too much time in front of the screen can actually reduce their ability to live their daily activities. Teenagers who have a hobby of playing social media continuously such as playing instagram, facebook, snapchat, line, and others will tend to have a lazy taste. And the feeling of laziness will greatly affect the teenagers themselves, such as late coming to school, tired easily in the move, and can not divide the time. Obviously
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.

The text,”Student examines negative effects of social media on teens” by Aurelie Krakowsky states,”(social media)..only a distraction to teenagers who have become addicted to checking their news feed.” This makes sense because teens sometimes sit around and do nothing but scroll up and down their feed. However, teens that appear to be sitting around and doing nothing could be helping a campaign, or writing a supportful comment on their friend 's post. Therefore, there is still more evidence to support that social media is
How Social Media Effects Teenagers The How and Why of Choosing the Subject My goal for this project is to inform teenagers about the risks associated with social media and how they can avoid it. Teens have turned social media into a crutch for verbal social contact. Instead of having experience out in the real world with friends and family, teens have become attached and dependent on social media. In my project, I wish to show that this is happening not to someone you do not know, but someone you do. I wish to tell why social media is a dangerous platform that has taken a hold of teenagers lives.
Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter can cause teens to fall into these negative situations. These are some of the reasons why I think social media has harmful effects on today’s youth. First off, social media can lower an abundant amount of teens self-confidence. One example of this is cyberbullying. Teens can post anything to the public to damage one’s self confidence.
The use of social media is one of the main ways people communicate in today’s society. With social media being a main source of communication social media can change someone’s idea of life. Teens are introduced to seeing the life of celebrities, and luxury life. Which can then leave the teens feeling envy, jealousy, and overall insecure. Using social media on a daily basis, without limit can cause a teen to enter a depression.
The effect it has on people is evident, and it is taking over the minds of the youth of this generation. The capability social media has over a person can be dangerous and goes unnoticed since everyone in this day and age is brainwashed by it. It produces a negative aspect on humanity by putting the users at constant risk for danger by hindering physical socializing skills and reducing the youth’s intellectual achievement. In addition, it contributes to the lack of physical communication skills that could determine the youth’s future success. All in all, it is clear that adolescents should attempt to disconnect from social media to enjoy the life around them.
“Social media and text messages that have become so integral to teenagers life , are promoting anxiety and lower self esteem” (Rachel Ehmke is managing editor at the Child Mind Institute. “How Using Social Media Affects Teenagers.” Child Mind Institute, childmind.org/article/how-using-social-media-affects-teenagers.). Modern teens tends to have an massive amount of self esteem when dealing with social sites especially girls. Girls compare they self to other girls , they tend to do this because they feel they are not prettier or popular like others.Young people have an tendency into having a perfect body, Teens will look at pictures of models or most pictures that are photoshopped and that makes a person want to maintain a “perfect body” that would get teens to think that they need to hit the gym to look like the models. This will disorder people thoughts and feelings about themselves.

When I had been using social media I had been always seeing and having good times with my friends, being able to chat and talk to them had really helped my out and made my life easier. However, I would always see at least 10 or more things talking about another person in a harmful way, and one of these comments had struck one of my friends so hard, that the next day, she herself had committed suicide. Social media is harmful to society and to those who use it in the wrong way. The reasons for this are because it hurts social skills, marriages become ruined or relationships get hurt, as well as hurts self-esteem, and causes future problems. According to "My Secure Cyberspace", Teens spend 79 percent of their time on social media, meaning that social media would play a big role in the life of a teen.
