Evidence shows that ordinary people are struggling with an addiction to their status online, which causes them to be distracted from the relationships around them. Along with this, depression has taken a presence among the social media population due to the pressure and comparison that comes from the public eye. Another startling aspect of social media is the permanent consequence that can come from controversial decisions, such as tweeting about transgender agendas or sending nude photos. While some people view the aspects of connectivity and business expansion that social media present as crucial to society, they are really not as important as commonly understood. Along with this, online networking provides a tendency for users to present themselves to man and not to God, which goes against what scripture teaches.
The Negative Impacts of Social Media on Teens “In the United States, media coverage frequently portrays American youth in dark bedrooms with only the glow of screen illuminating their faces, implying that there’s a generation of zombified social media addicts who are unable to tear themselves away from the streams of content from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram” (Boyd). This quote states how teens are addicted to social media, and how it is a problem in our country. Social media has put a negative impact on teens lives, with it affecting their public image and taking away from things that are more important.

Some people prefer that social media have some good effects for children, while others believe that social media only can harm children. In the ultimate analysis. Actually, on balance analysis, I agree that social media causes bad effects for teenager because social media take up a lot of time for children to study, and have a bad influence on the development of their body and mind health. Parents wonder if their children’s constant use of Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat is healthy. Teenagers talk about the pressure to post the perfect photo or to compete with the perfect lives their friends present on the Internet.
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
Social media caused multiple problems socially for women, but adding that to their psychological and physical problems can become a disastrous combination for some women. Self-esteem, friendships, and significant relationships can all be harmed by social media. A researcher named Leon Festinger writes in his study, “people rely on external models to form their self-perceptions. Adolescent women who look to the media to make these comparisons end up negatively comparing themselves making themselves seem inferior” (Vitelli 1).

One decides to meet the other person after talking to them for so long, and in most cases, come to find out the person they have been talking to is not the same person as their pictures seem to be. The author of the article “Negative Impact of Social Media on Teens” states “social media has made this easier for them to embrace stuff they would not otherwise embrace because they can do it ‘safely’ behind a screen” (McCann 1). This “safe” social media environment allows people to be someone they are not behind a screen. Unfortunately, teenagers are also at a risk of this type of scam. It exposes them to a world of predators who are doing the same thing for younger people.

The growing usage of social networking sites easily influence people to have their own social media sites and making them addicted to online interactions which, when used excessively, will degrade the quality of face to face interactions. A very common case about social media interactions is that people tend to show only the things about themselves that they want people to know and at the same time hiding another side of them that would change others’ opinion about them (Serra, 2014). This is probably due to the need to have bunch of online friends to have their back and
