The Bad, the Ugly, and the Good of Kids' Use of Social Media

The Bad, the Ugly, and the Good of Kids' Use of Social Media | Social Media Impact on Psychological Behavior | Scoop.it
Social media has both benefits and costs. You must know the difference.
Ashley Maria Meirino's insight:

By teaching your children about the internet, they can develop a better understanding. Social media isn't all bad if the child is educated; however, in some cases it can get very ugly if the child does not know a thing about the internet.

Social media changing relationships: Expert

Social media changing relationships: Expert | Social Media Impact on Psychological Behavior | Scoop.it
Considering the changing family system and teenagers' exposure to social media, even a 10-year-old should be considered an adolescent who can be drawn towards a relationship with the opposite sex, a psychologist has opined.
Ashley Maria Meirino's insight:

"The relationship between a 14-year-old girl and a 22-year-old man, which ended in the former’s suicide, is a case in point. The couple had little knowledge that their “harmless” Facebook friendship, chatting and a few meetings would lead to so much emotional distress that the girl would end her life." There should've been a boundary, the 22 year old knew that she was young. He should have taken a step back and said you are a child I can't do this. There is also a problem when it comes to parenting, the girl was not a securely attached teenager. She needed someone to give her the attention.

When CyberBullying Doesn’t Stay Online

When CyberBullying Doesn’t Stay Online | Social Media Impact on Psychological Behavior | Scoop.it
How can cyberbullying influence depression?
Ashley Maria Meirino's insight:

The most interesting part of this article is : "This is not surprising: you have to be online to be harassed in this environment, so the more time adolescents spend there, the greater the chance of something happening. Interestingly, adolescents who are harassed online are more likely to be harassers themselves." It is sad that the amount of time spent is more likely the child/adolescent will be harassed even if they are doing nothing wrong.

Social Media lets people who have anti-social tendencies have a voice. In other words, shy people aren't as shy when not in social situations. They have a voice and let it out through social networking.

"Similarly, Andrea Kuszewski writing in Scientific America cites a study which shows the positive relationship between neocortical gray matter in regions of the brain associated with social cognition and social networks. Apparently, social networks contributes to changes in brain structure and function." Social media does not always have a bad psychological impact some is actually good.

The more we see other people happy with things that we do not own/possess the more we get upset. If we do not have a happy relationship and we see others with a perfect relationship, or so we think, this will make us unhappy and feeling depressed.

Often, it’s more about quantity - not quality when it comes to how many likes, friends, comments, and followers kids have. 


Ashley Maria Meirino's comment, December 1, 2013 11:01 AM
I agree with you @cyndi whitecotton the quantity outweighs the quality. These kids are only interested in getting a ton of likes, friends, comments and followers. They want the most followers or friends. They do not care about who they are, some do not even know most of their friends.

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships | Social Media Impact on Psychological Behavior | Scoop.it

One main facet of social media is its emphasis on creating and maintaining relationships.

 

All the content you create, all the following you build, each of these is designed to create and foster more intimate relationships with people, in some cases, people you might not have met any other way.

 

What’s interesting is social media is changing the foundation of the ways we relate. This article will examine how social media is changing our interpersonal psychology and what you can do about it.

 

Why Should You Care?

This has important implications for business because business, after all, is comprised of interpersonal relationships.

Maggie Giuffrida's curator insight, October 14, 2013 9:54 PM

Here, we are introduced to think about whether or not this trend, or epidemic, is an American-focused concern or if it is worldwide. As social media is obviously globalized, has it had the same effect overseas as it has in America? Based on my travels abroad, I would argue that this trend is mainly Americanized.

 

Secondly, this article suggests that Facebook's socially beneficial aspects have been overshown by its harmful aspects. More research on Facebook can help to determine such contrasting ideas.

ScienceDirect.com - Computers in Human Behavior - Is Facebook creating “iDisorders”? The link between clinical symptoms of psychiatric disorders and technology use, attitudes and anxiety

This study systematically tested whether the use of specific technologies or media (including certain types of Facebook use), technology-related anxieties, and technology-related attitudes (including multitasking preference) would predict clinical symptoms of six personality disorders (schizoid, narcissistic, antisocial, compulsive, paranoid and histrionic) and three mood disorders (major depression, dysthymia and bipolar-mania). In addition, the study examined the unique contributions of technology uses after factoring out demographics, anxiety and attitudes. Teens, young adults and adults (N = 1143) completed an anonymous, online questionnaire that assessed these variables. Each disorder had a unique set of predictors with 17 of the 22 significant predictors being Facebook general use, impression management and friendship. More Facebook friends predicted more clinical symptoms of bipolar-mania, narcissism and histrionic personality disorder but fewer symptoms of dysthymia and schizoid personality disorder. Technology-related attitudes and anxieties significantly predicted clinical symptoms of the disorders. After factoring out attitudes and anxiety, Facebook and selected technology uses predicted clinical symptoms with Facebook use, impression management and friendship being the best predictors. The results showed both positive and negative aspects of technology including social media as well as apparently detrimental effects of a preference for multitasking.

Whether you post your own "selfie" shots on the social web or not, you'll find the format is sitting on top of fascinating psychological trends. (RT @shahid_shayaa: Self-love? Self-absorbed?
Ashley Maria Meirino's insight:

The "selfie", it amazes me everyday how many people post these pictures. I, myself, do post them from time to time. Most of these pictures for others are not because they are confident but are striving for attention or want to be accepted by others. Self-confidence is an issue!
