TEAM: AGRI MISSILES (AGRICULTURE)

INTRODUCTION:- As we already know that how the social media impact on every one from a child to adults. On the other hand it has been showing it’s adverseful and harmful effects majorly on teenagers which is killing ones professional and personal life as well. And we are here to vocalize how the social media on youth.

HOW DOES SOCIAL MEDIA EFFECT ON YOUTH

SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOUTH :- In 2015, it is now easier to access t internet than ever before. This easily leads to the misuse of the technology that we are provided with but not everybody misusing it. Studies show that the age group of 12-21 access social media more than any other. Being that I fall into this age group I know that social media such as Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat is used to keep up with the latest trends, our favorite artists and an easy way to stay up to date with what our peers are doing.

HERE ARE FIVE WAYS I HAVE SEEN TECHNOLOGY HAVE A NEGATIVE INFLUENCE ON YOUTH

1) The social websites become their first priority, rather than the things that should come first such as school, family and sports.

2) People portray themselves as someone they’re not.

3) Young people begin to cyberbully another peer; this can lead to many things such as depression and suicidal thoughts.

4) Some youth are easily influenced so they may feel the need o change their physical appearance by comparing themselves to the next person they see in the media.

5) Social media is a very powerful temptation, so it can also become addicting and begin to start sidetracking the youth.

FIVE WAYS I HAVE SEEN TECHNOLOGY HAVE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON YOUTH:

1) Keeps connections between friends when they’re not always able to see each other when they want to.

2) Social media also keeps you up to express themselves in a way that public place wouldn’t allow us to.

3) It gives youth a place to express themselves in a way that a public place wouldn’t allow us to.

4) It helps to develop social skills, a lot of friendships can stem from a social website.

5) It’s a fun way to interact with your peers, other than seeing them in person.

CONCLUSION:-

To be fair and honest we need to mention that social media has its positive outcomes and has its drawbacks as well as it have relived in this document. It is our choice to use social media in a positive way and benefit from it in your social and academic life. So, teenagers do please access your social media benefits otherwise we may fall as a victim of social medias negative impacts.

Thank you
