networking sites and the effects on family interaction by John Moore, the argument is furthermore supported that “social networking and cyber technology are having a negative effect on the family structure”. Families no longer enjoy the bonding time they usually would have. They are exposed to “countless hours of internet surfing” which has a huge effect on the daily lives since they would not be aware of what is happening in each other life. The effects on the family relationship have become a serious issue as the result of social networking. What are some things you can do to enjoy both social networking and family time? Some possible solutions are “set time limits on cyber activities” and “ensure that the social networking sites are age appropriate”. By setting time limit, it will balance out both the time with the family and time on the internet. As for the restrictions, it limits the internet uses for the younger users and makes sure that they are not always online. Through the visual and research, it is shown that social networking has impacted families. However, we can change this by finding time to spend more with the family and less time on the internet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
