Since teenagers spend the majority of their time on social media, there is less time for face to face interaction with family members or loved ones. 47% of social media users with ages between 18 and 34 reported that they use social media or they text during meals. Because they are detached from reality, many relationships can be affected by social media. Also, some of the major negative effect of social media is the lack of privacy and social detriments. 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.
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 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.

Seventy-five percent of teenagers now own cell phones, and 25% use them for social media, 54% use them for texting, and 24% use them for instant messaging” (O'Keeffe, Gwenn Schurgin, et al. “The Impact of Social Media on Children, Adolescents, and Families”). When you see just how often teenagers are exposed to so many media outlets on a daily basis, you have to look at both the positive and negative effects that such a large platform may have on
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
Occasionally, social media can help us with homework, and allow us to communicate with others. Yet, despite its positive impact, it also has negative influences on society. Look at all the people who have their ears plugged with earphones, fingers flying, and a distraught look on their face when their parents tell them to do something. This results in bad behavior which can causes social issues and rifts between family and friends and possibly lead to inactivity and obesity in youths.
