Younger teenagers are lacking the development of social skills. It is easier to like a boy's facebook profile picture than to spark conversation in the lunch room. Young teenagers are more confident online than in any other facet of their lives. This is a horribly negative effect on society and predicts negative effects.

Social media is making us women gain weight! Oh no. Studies show that constantly seeing "food porn" images trigger the women's mind to think that they are hungry when they are not. So, when you sarcastically lean over to your girlfriend and say "wow, that chocolate covered banana looks really good, I am hungry for that," you actually are hungry for that banana.

 

Social media has also increased consumer spending. More psychographically, social media has messed with the ability to think independently - who am I or what is my role in society? Most tragically, there has been a decrease in self-esteem as an effect of the social media craze.

Social Media has affected society significantly. Majority of individuals now have smartphones that allow constant connection to the Internet. Smartphones also provide fast and easy communication as well as million of applications (app’s) to make things fast and easy. What’s crazy is that this article mentions on average people check their smartphone 150 times a day, and 50% of the population is updating status, posting content such as videos and pictures to social media platforms.

 

The major problem with this is that individuals are now suffering from something called disconnect anxiety, and it’s described exactly how it sounds. When people start to feel insecure or experience negative emotional feelings because of the fact they are unable to get online.

 

Yes the Internet has made connection so easy but unfortunately people take it for granted. Social networks are a huge part of the Internet. This article points out how social networks can create an uncomfortable mirror against which we unknowingly measure ourselves and let that determine our own sense of worth. Many individuals could probably agree with this.

 

Thinking about it, the Internet has many benefits as well. The problem with the benefits is the negatives outweigh them. Individuals often forget how to write formally and speak properly.
