Domestic life can be an extremely transforming to opinions on suicide to the teenage youth community. In a journal article this fact was found “Many teenagers feel trapped and powerless from domestic abuse and thus believe that suicide is the only way out” (World mental health, Elsevier’s Research page.2). This quote essentially means those teenagers who experience effects such as being beaten at home or harmed are more likely to have suicidal thoughts and perhaps even go through with it. With this information it is able to be extracted that teenagers experiencing trouble at home are the ones who have additional suicidal thoughts, thus showing how domestic house hold connects to suicide. Another reason this is true is based on the fact gained from “Why Suicide?” book which stated “39% of all youth suicides are completed by young people who have lost someone of influence or significance for them to think about or commit suicide”(Why suicide, page 48).
Cyber Bullying has become an increasing problem in our society that threatens physical and emotional harm to ever greater numbers of young people. The sad fact is, some youths are so deeply affected by the negative influence of bullying that they have taken their own lives. Although suicides represent a rare and extreme reaction to bullying, it is a real issue that our children are facing today. Cyberbullying is often a factor in young people becoming depressed and having low self-esteem. Cyberbullying has been an issue, in the United States as well as everywhere throughout the world.
Social media often contained threatening content to the Vietnamese children and the addiction to the internet which can lead way to sexual abuse and social problems. There are about twenty-five million internet users who are kids under eighteen. It is a huge threat that “children are so used to chatting to their friends that sometimes they believe they are chatting online to people they know.” According to the Vietnam news, youngsters are naive into thinking that other people on the internet are their friends even if it is just strangers. There is a lot of harmful content on the internet which children can become victims. It will be easy for sexual predators to contact kids by looking at the picture posted online to figure out the home address.
It’s been estimated that 1.96 billion people have social media network.Social media is a website and application that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. Can this impact our society in a negative way?.Here’s a story about a 14 year-old-girl named Hannah Smith who’s from Lutterworth,England Hannah was bullied by anonymous participants online they influence her to drink bleach and cut herself, she was subjected to cruel taunts and was being insulted by her weight due to the impact of what was said Hannah decided to commit suicide due to the cyberbullying.According to Laid “More than 4500 kids commit suicide each year due to social networking” (Laid 1).Social media has a negative impact because it increases the chance for someone to get bullied, causes lack of studying which affects grades, leads teen to get diagnosed with a mental disorder.
On average, 19 teens commit suicide everyday (AFSP 1). That equals roughly 7000 deaths each year. The leading cause of suicide in teens is mental health issues, like depression, which is directly linked to things like the brain chemistry, home life, and social media (Tracy 1). Teens who use social media are 13% more likely to feel depressed and attempt suicide than those who do not (Chen 1).

Impersonation is basically stealing someone else’s identity and pretending to be them. While trickery happens when the bully tricks a person into sharing their secrets, outing is revealing those secrets to the public without permission. Finally, cyber stalking is repeated harassment and messages including threats that can cause fear for one’s safety. Therefore, because of the many forms cyberbulling takes, it makes this crime more dangerous and more serious than face-to-face bulling. Since the Internet is now an essential part of every teen’s life, it is became harder to escape bullying; the victim in this case can’t simply leave it behind at the end of the school day.

Ever since the internet came to be, more suicides and depressed teens have come out of it. Could what had once started as a life changing invention, possibly become a secret evil to society without us knowing? Who knows what lies ahead in the future of social media, but it might not be entirely good. Not only has social media made people commit suicide, but it is also caused people, mainly young girls, to feel that they need to change the way they look.
Firstly, social media, especially Facebook and Twitter are very addicting. Secondly, getting rid of them reduces a large amount of the social media addiction.

Research from The Nationwide Study of Bullying in Irish first and second level schools conducted by Dr Mona O'Moore in Trinity College Dublin indicates that some 31% of Primary Students and 16% of Secondary Students have been bullied at some time. From their circa 870,000 school going population, approximately 23% or 200,000 children are at risk of suffering the ill effects of bullying. The overwhelming fact that the level of bullying in Irish schools is above the EU average, and that Irish children and teenagers find it more difficult to cope with the problem than their peers in other EU countries. By looking at these facts we can draw a conclusion by looking at the number of suicides committed by young people in Ireland in recent months – very often they make a desperate decision after being bullied at school or online. Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan said, these people are 'extremely vulnerable', experiencing bullying can cause some really serious damage to their lives, and it is vital to show them support and let them know they can ask for help.

Outcomes from Karimi and Khodabandelou’s (2013) suggest that a sense of addiction may affect students adversely when engaged in social media. This was asserted by findings from Singh and Laxmi’s (2015) study which reveals that majority of students felt that social networking sites were kind of an addiction. Results from Paul, Baker and Cochran’s (2012) research reveals that the time used up on social networking sites has an undesirable impact on students’ academic achievement. Responses from students in Eke, Omekwu and Odoh’s (2014) study reveal that social media had a negative impact on students’ academic work as it led to an internet addiction and promoted procrastination.
