In addition, social media use internet access that can help us in all our activities that require a very short time. Social media is an internet-based communication tool that is widely used by almost everyone around the world. Many advantages in using social media but of course there is a negative impact arising from the use of social media in excess. I suggest for everyone to be wiser in using social media. And this era of globalization, many people access the internet to find information including children.
To the majority of teens, the effect of social media has been positive (Chung, 2013). That is in which many individuals, and especially students, use social media in order to access some websites, and get some needed information. Social media also helps keeping people in touch no matter how far they are. “They don’t have to worry about losing touch because social media has it covered” (Chung, 2013, para4). On the other hand, social media has its negative impacts, by which some people use it improperly, and that leads to waste of time.
Furthermore, watching TV will make kids to ignore reading books or interact with other kids socially because kids will be amazed by TV and the programs that it shows and they will not get benefited from it. Also, watching TV is the one of the main reasons of ignorance among our children. For instance, if the child is always watching TV, when he or she grows up they will be ignorant because of lack of reading and having the right
Everybody cares about social media today. To say that social media is not important is selfishly denying the reality especially among our teenagers whose life revolves around the influence of social media. Today, there are many popular forms of social media such as the Face book, Twitter, My Life, MySpace and Aim. Many users today around the world are engaged with social media sites for numerous reasons that include communication with family and friends while others may include business purposes or for playing online games (Boyd, d. m., & Ellison, N. B. (2007).
Social media can also bring progressive social change in a contemporary society to solve social problems. The only problem is that if billions of people are using social media but still there are lots of issues which are uncover and people don’t even want to discuss them. Social media is a very effective tool to change the perception of the society if used to raise these issues in a right way. Raise your voice against those issues which are overpowering us. In country like India we can freely share our thoughts on Facebook, twitter and many other social networking sites which do affect people’s perception so can we start using social media more and more for the social cause.
We are too busy building a virtual world but often ignore the real world. The intensity of chatting with the family is reduced, while hanging out with friends busy checking social networking. We can not allow it to continue because it will destroy long standing relationship in the real world. First effect can make someone be anti social and indifidualism. Cause of opiate, sosial media can also cause opium that can lead to the nature of it’s users become auitism or more close to the life around.
This topic has brought us so many surprises; we never thought that technology affects us as teenagers that heavily. Media brings negative influences on us, because it separates individual from reality. The Ipod for example, everyday kids were using ear buds and immersing them in music while in public. What they are doing is disconnecting from the real world. The internet is really detracted from communication abilities in society; we begin “spending less time talking to families, experiencing more daily stress, and feeling lonelier and depressed”- Bob Affonso.
Therefore, technology is ruining the future for kids. Technology is making kids lives harder to function on a daily basis. According to MD, Craig Canapari, “We’re throwing screens at children all day long, giving them distractions rather than teaching them how to self-soothe, to calm themselves down.” When young children have technology, they get sucked into it, forgetting to take care of themselves. Kids do not take the time to relax because they are always on some form of technology, which causes a lack of sleep. With a lack of sleep, kids are not getting the right amount of knowledge.
Facebook and Twitter are the two most popular social networking sites today and can serve as a support network for information and to build social connections. Although social networks sites are a great way to connect with others, it comes with an increasing amount of negative effects on our society. Do these sites cause more harm than good? These two social networking sites as the potential for to leave people vulnerable to fraudulent and bad behaviors by others as well as public arena for the exposition of one’s own bad behaviors. Although social networks sites are a great way to connect with others, it comes
I think because of video games and media that adolescents think it is okay for violence and sexualy activity. Their brain is not able to decipher what is right and wrong and it leads them to make poor choices, which leads to school/public shootings and rape. I believe this is a problem because their parents are not able to be there to push them into the right direction because they are at work most of the day, and adolescents are at home alone possibly with their friends and they end up making poor choices with one another. In today’s society, you see more older people working than you do teenagers. It is very difficult for a teenager to get a job, because of their maturity level, the responsibility that goes with it and et cetera.
