[Last Name] 1Walker, BrooklynSamuel L. BickfordENGL 100111/30/22Social Media Is a Bad InfluenceOver the years, social media has become one of the major impacts of society. Socialmedia impact has also changed over the years. The diversity of people throughout the world havemany connections through social media that change their everyday lifestyle. Me, myself, and Ihave noticed that just throughout my own life, social media have shown both good and badinfluence on not just me but others. Clarified data and analysis that is quoted throughout theessay will conclude that social media’s influence on the economy has not been the friendliness.In the article, Teens and social media use: What's the impact?”, states, “A 2016 study ofmore than 450 teens found that greater social media use, nighttime social media use andemotional investment in social media — such as feeling upset when prevented from logging on— were each linked with worse sleep quality and higher levels of anxiety and depression”. Thisquote suggests that social media’s one out of many negative effects can just stem from theprevention to just be denied by account log in can cause harm to the mind such as anxiety thathas been mentioned before. While reading the article, I have also interpreted that effects thatsocial media gives off can be impact people differently. Like, for example, the example about thelog in causing depression would have infected me differently. Instead of getting depressed, Iwould have just closed the phone completely and thought it was just a sign that I didn’t need tobe on social media at that particular moment. In quotation, “Because of teens' impulsive natures,experts suggest that teens who post content on social media are at risk of sharing intimate photosor highly personal stories. This can result in teens being bullied, harassed or even blackmailed.Teens often create posts without considering these consequences or privacy concerns”. This
[Last Name] 2shows that some teens are not aware of the harmful possibilities that they are putting themselvesin from just being horny. I have witnessed many teens and peers my age that have been caughtup in the predicament and haven’t been the same since. This infers that one thing that you chooseto do on social media can affect you for the rest of your life.
