People have started losing their efficient communication skill, which shows the total control of social media has over many people’s lives. If people were to start reversing the process of influence it has over them now, it might be reversible to the point where people wouldn’t see any serious effects over a generational gap. If people do not do anything about this subject the world would be filled with so many sociably awkward people who can no longer communicate well in a modern social environment. Social media can be beneficial however, only if used the proper proportions with normal face-to-face interactions. People are overusing it and allowing it to impact how they conduct their lives negatively, so it is easy to conclude that the positive impacts of social media are far less than the negative impacts that they may
Although social media grants citizens to contact others and see what they are doing, but is it really worth the hassle just to see what the rest of the population is doing? Even though the general public accredits social media with social enhancement, it actually has a negative impact on humanity due to technology addiction, promotion of cyberbullying, and lack of sleep.
Many people living in this day and age use technology for everything. By all means, social media is everything from work to personal. Social media are generally define as online communication that are used by large groups of people to share information and thoughts to develop social and professional contacts which literally involve everyone around the globe. Social media is a big source that can either gives positive or negative feedback. As far as social media connects people with each other, it can also be the major reasons why children are not really bonded with families hence create negative impacts to family life.
First, children and teenagers become lazy to communicate in real world. Their understanding of the language is disturbed if a child is too much communicating in the virtual world, then their knowledge about the details of communicating in real life, like body language and tone of voice will be declined. Second, the negative impact of social networks for teens and children are the social networking sites they have. They will feel addicted and do not care about time, do not care about the surroundings, lack of socialization with environment, waste of money and credit. Prone to dispute or misunderstanding, often social media can damage the health of the eye of children or people who use them.
Now all types of information can be accessed via the internet and every important subject that can be discussed and debated on social media. Nowadays even organizational meetings can be held on social media to cut down cost, time and stress; these meetings are held on social platforms like skype,viber,imo and due to their video chat functions and even whatsapp group chat. It has totally become impossible for some companies to maintain control over data. Advertising business and work opportunities to enable the youth to attain job easily. Spending time on social media may seem like a waste of time.
Social media negatively impacts teenagers mentally and socially; despite the opposition that some believe social networks aid in the development of online communication and public identity, sufficient evidence proves that teens significantly indulged online grow more disconnected from the world that surrounds them. The concept of being glued to devices has been welcomed into society as a social norm, and as a consequence, it enables people to disengage from peers within the same vicinity. The ability to sever relations with people in the same space is truly fearsome and creates antisocial behaviors. The question of “Are we too wired?” increased the opposition between two experts. Noa Gafni Slaney argued no.
As Yost (2014) claims in her study can lead lack of communication skills in children. When children spend too much time online, at some point, they may think of social media as a replacement for the real world. Consequently such substitution may lead ignorance about behavior related interpersonal contact. Moreover, it may result in witnessing hate speech and increasing social distrust. Obviously, hate speech is a part of virtual world because of poor censored content and existence of huge number of unknown or fake accounts.
First, social media can be a bad influence. Because anyone can post on social media there is lots of opinions and false information about things. For example, when it comes to drugs social media often finds a way of giving false information or saying it 's cool. All it takes is one teen to believe this and then peer-pressure sets in. Peer pressure can ruin have serious impacts when people start doing drugs, or engaging in other dangerous activities.
Grievously, the sad truth is that most teenagers lack the mental self-discipline and willpower to resist the urge of short-term satisfaction for long-term satisfaction. This inevitably leads to procrastination, which in turn leads to, as you mentioned, a decay in the quality of ‘priorities like schoolwork and homework’. On the other hand regulated and monitored usage would possibly enable the child or teenager to increase their productivity. Consequently, I believe that the usage of the internet and social networks can be beneficial when regulated or monitored by either parents or a trusted elder or guardian. The point you conveyed regarding social media users creating a ‘distorted self-image’ ‘in order to develop a perfect’ self-image, at the major expense of ‘staying true to who we really are’.
They are lack confidence and will avoid others. This problem will lead them to be an anti- social person. In addition, victims also feel exposed and humiliated to anyone around them. When cyber bullying occurs, the unpleasant messages or texts can be shared with many people. Increase of number of people that know about the bullying can lead to feelings of humiliation.
