The Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use | The effects of Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

"In "Only Disconnect," Andrew Reiner, writing for The Chronicle of Higher Education, lamented the state of American youth, particularly their preoccupation with social media. By the end of his article, Reiner advocated for social media Sabbaths, in which students would disconnect from their networks in order to more deeply engage with each other and their academic pursuits. While there are certainly negatives that can be associated with social media overuse, it is also a valuable part of the way our society functions."

Online Communication and Adolescent Relationships

This article tackles important issues regarding the future of children growing up in the digital age. In regards to my question, a part of this article looks at how communication is affected by the internet’s ability to ‘establish interpersonal connections and construct identity.’ One result showed that the ease of online communication is making teens less interested in face-to-face communication. Their results, like many of the articles I have read so far, are not conclusive but they do agree that communication online will affect how a teen will act in ‘real-world’ relationships and vice versa.

Adolescent Peer Relationships and Behavior Problems Predict Young Adults' Communication on Social Networking Websites

Like many of the articles I’ve discovered, this psychology manuscript explains some phenomenons from social media without being conclusive. Studying multiple psychological problems that may occur in teens using social media, the psychologists discovered that at a younger age, social media users will continue to use websites into their early twenties. They also found that social media helped teens with face-to-face communication, friendship, and behavior adjustment. The conductors of the study say that unlike earlier tests when results of social media were always negative, this most recent study is finding the opposite. I find that this study provides the most concrete evidence I have found so far.

Not Not Communicating by Michael Rabby » Are Teens Hiding Behind The Screen?

Not Not Communicating by Michael Rabby » Are Teens Hiding Behind The Screen? | The effects of Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

This article looks at a teenager’s personality when using social media. The author here aims at comparing social technologies and shyness among teenagers. A survey was set up to determine how much time teenagers spent on technologies and the teen’s feelings towards face-to-face communication. The results showed that there was ‘a connection between social introversion and socially interactive technologies.’ In a sense, if a teen doesn’t like interacting face-to-face, they are more likely to use social media. This survey, thus, shows that shy teens are being provided with comforting means of communication rather than having them practice in front of another human being. This article is interesting to me because it is showing the psychology of social media. Social media has become a problem for people who are shy and afraid to ‘be in public.’
