Pew Study Shows Teens' Social Media Use Rising, Race Affects Habits

Pew Study Shows Teens' Social Media Use Rising, Race Affects Habits | Social Media Effects | Scoop.it

"Teenagers are revealing more about themselves on social media than ever before, but they’re also taking more steps to protect their privacy online, according to  “Teens, Social Media, and Privacy,” a May 21 report issued by Pew Internet, part of the Pew Research Center, and Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The report also found Twitter use among teens—especially African Americans—is rising, while teens’ fondness for Facebook is on the decline."

According to this article, social media has a big impact on our children, especially if parents do not control what their children see, post or share with the rest of society. From this article we learn that more than 80% of American youth have access to any social media site because they use texting, posting on Facebook or Twitter, and sending email, etc… Using too much social media can create a negative impact on their face-to-face social skills, and expose them to widespread problems like internet bullying. Teens also experience side effects if they are plugged into social media for too many long periods of time. One thing we shouldn’t forget is that parents of plugged-in teens have the authority or responsibility to create some boundaries for their children. For example, a parent can be more involved in what their children post or see over the internet, and a parent can control how much time a teen or child has access to the internet or social media sites. With both the parents’ participation and the children’s participation, social media is not as bad as it looks.

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.

Get a Life! Survey Results: Facebook is Bad for You.

Get a Life! Survey Results: Facebook is Bad for You. | Social Media Effects | Scoop.it

THOSE who have resisted the urge to join Facebook will surely feel vindicated when they read the latest research. A study just published by the Public Library of Science, conducted by Ethan Kross of the University of Michigan and Philippe Verduyn of Leuven University in Belgium, has shown that the more someone uses Facebook, the less satisfied he is with life.

Past investigations have found that using Facebook is associated with jealousy, social tension, isolation and depression. But these studies have all been “cross-sectional”—in other words, snapshots in time. As such, they risk confusing correlation with causation: perhaps those who spend more time on social media are more prone to negative emotions in the first place. The study conducted by Dr Kross and Dr Verduyn is the first to follow Facebook users for an extended period, to track how their emotions change.

Using the social network seems to make people more miserable.
