How Are Kids Using Social Media and How Well Can it Shape Their Future?

How Are Kids Using Social Media and How Well Can it Shape Their Future? | Virginie Lestrade | Scoop.it
Social media did not exist when I was growing up. And life wasn’t difficult without this technological boom either. With easy access to Smartphones and the Internet today, kids of the current generation have become a lot smarter and outspoken but also aggressive and self-centered at the same time.

Why do kids use social media?
The primary reason for kids to use social media is to stay connected with their friends (mainly the ones they do not see every day). Social media’s role as a stress-buster is the second reason for its humongous popularity with kids. Mostly on a subconscious level, kids also use social platforms to get the attention they desire. This generation seeks quick action and social channels are perfect tools to make their voices heard.

However, social media is not just for fun. As people all across the globe use social channels to share their views and experiences, school authorities have started encouraging students to get acquainted and leverage the power of social media platforms. This can add an ‘out-of-the-textbook’ angle to their allotted classroom projects, and help them introduce things beyond the stereotypical formulas.

Let us take Twitter for example. When I searched with the phrase “pyramid Egypt” on Twitter, the screenshot below shows the top 2 results that I found. These two tweets are not only extremely insightful and re-tweetable, but are also highly useful for students working on a pyramid or Egypt-based assignment.
