Every day, new advancements and applications dealing with technology are coming out that alter social function and capability. Social media sites including Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are at their peak when influencing young adults. Ongoing issues, cyberbullying, threats, and hate crimes are being presented through these social media sites and this is one of the multitude of reasons why parents should limit the use of technology for their teenagers. I agree that parents should limit the use of social media for their teenage child, or for any age child, because ongoing use causes lack of exercise, impaired social skills, and harm for threat and violence. Parents should restrict the use of social media sites for their children because it causes a decrease in physical activity.
But while numerous parents may feel allayed about their teens’ seeming uninterested in drinking, driving and dating, they could perhaps be overlooking the effects that continuous internet access has on their teens’ mental well-being. In the article “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?”, Jean M. Twenge compares iGen to previous generations. The smartphone and social media define “iGen”, the generation born between 1995 to 2012. Twenge accuses smartphones for sleep deprivation, anti-socialization, courtship, sexual activities, and poor mental health. The omnipresence of the smartphone affects adolescents in every section of the United States, regardless of social class and ethnic background.
Cell phones have easily changed the life of teenagers since the 90s. Wherever you go, you’ll see teens on their cell phones. This will become a serious problem going forward in life for everyone. Parents will be more cautious, and all teens will beg for a phone. Today, it’s a huge debate on whether or not cell phones are a positive or a negative affect on teens.
This takes place around the world on most social media sites. This issues can affect anyone but it most commonly affects teenagers. Schools should be concerned because bullying might affect students that attend their school and it can also impact how they function at school. Cyberbullying happens all the time and their are many victims, Schools have been stepping in and trying to help but some people say that schools have no right to do anything
In the first place, almost every teenager has a phone or access to some type of technology. The social media world would be overfilled with information over what was going on. With all the technology we have now, a protest could be run many different ways. For example, the students from different schools could have just started a group chat to discuss the plan instead of meeting at a certain place and then the spy’s would have not seen them having meetings at night. Also, if a protest were to happen today, when the police went after the students and started beating them, other students could video and put it all over social media for everyone to see.
Lastly we do not know how to manage our time we spent too much time on social media. One good thing about social media is That it strengthens our relationships. One reason why time should be limited for teenagers is that, in the article Internet addiction too much time online It says,"For youth on the high-end of the scale spending this much time with media online and offline rob them from real-world experiences and may result in lower grades increase the risk for depression cut
They can find many believable excuses to be absent from school. It’s easy for that child to play hokey and delinquent in itself; but this often provides an opportunity to make offenses of a much more serious nature. By students missing school these students will not be able to receive the proper instructions from teachers, this is linked to delinquency. Having excessive school absences is a sign of school dropout and because daily attendance determines a schools funding absences would mean that the school will have less resources to do their job well. Being absent from school, most students tend to get into altercations that get post on to Facebook or any other social media site.
It is crazy how we live in a generation where almost all teens are always distracted by the technology and the social media. New technology like smartphones and all that are good for teens sometimes, but can also be bad because teens get distracted by their phones a lot and also social media makes you feel bad. Another reason why phones are bad because there are teens that are sexting without knowing the consequences. Teens spend too much time and get to distracted by their phones. In the article “Teens Texting Soars: Will Skills Suffers” by Jennifer Ludden it claims “58 percent of students with mobile phone say they 've send a text during class.” When being in class sometimes there is important information given to the students by their teachers and they do not hear because they were distracted by their phones.
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
The fact that social media platforms allow teenagers to communicate indirectly only makes it easier to be cruel to others. Psychologist Dr. Donna Wick mentioned that teenagers text all sorts of things that many people would never contemplate saying to anyone’s face. They judge other people’s looks and lives. They post hurtful and mean comments; moreover, they also spread false rumors. This will mentally hurt the bullying victim.
Teens use social media apps like twitter, Facebook, Instagram, kik, and snapchat just to show off to their friends and what I don’t understand is why you would use social media to show off when you can do other things to show off like get good grades on your test, quiz’s, report cards, and progress reports. By using social media teens are becoming depressed and angry and even commenting suicide all because of cyber bullies on internet and social media sites like Facebook, kik, snapchat, Instagram, Myspace, and twitter. Also its not only teens that’s get cyber bullied some celebrities get cyber bullied to like Tamera Mowry-Housley when she tweeted about her political view she got attacked by all of her followers. Mostly it’s the teens that are getting bullied not that many people or celebrities are getting bully . Bullying takes place everyday some where in the Us mostly in school
