relation ships and people relate to there communicate. The bad effects of
social media, social media is rewiring our brain it affected teens and effects
our youth. Social media is changing our brain and makes us unsocial.
Media by Students Social media are online technology platforms that help to
connect people together far and near.
The use of social media by students helps to have access to basic
information as quick as possible. In
school, the use of online platforms such as school website will give students
the right access to quality information about the school environment,
departments, faculties, rules, and regulations.
It has been observed that social media has a wider and faster means of
circulating information not only to the students of an institution but also to
the generality of the public. Students
must use all available online platforms effectively and they must be conscious
of social media positive and negative effects.
They should try as much as possible to create a balance so as not to get
carried away while learning. Social
media platforms available to students include Facebook, Whatsapp, Google Plus,
Blogs, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and much more.

online we are not able to stop time we spent online, attention, emotion and
decision-making our brain is unable to stimulate multitasking online hard for
your brain to concentrate this made phantom vibration syndrome. Our
conversations are now on social media even at work we have to see our phone if
a notification we delivered.
Now we can
celebrate online without making an event we can concrete and talk online our
social life is ending from this technological social media.
The Internet may give you an addict’s brain
“The majority of
people we see with serious Internet addiction are gamers people who spend long
hours in roles in various games that cause them to disregard their
obligations.” YouTube technologies and you see what u like then the
recommended videos and a video and a video then the time is gone this effects
the social like we stop talking to people anything I want its on the internet
we can search on the internet.
Snap chat made our lives
unsocial and not private we share our lives on social media. Social media may make it easier to connect
with others, but recent research by German scientists suggests that constantly
viewing images of others’ vacation photos, personal achievements, etc. Researchers have even described the
phenomenon as “Facebook depression.”
Internet use may heighten
suicide risk in certain teens.
“We are not saying
that all young people who go on the Internet increase their risk of suicide or
self-harm,” one of the researchers, Dr. Paul Montgomery, professor of
psycho-social intervention at the university, said in a written statement. “We are talking about vulnerable young
people who are going online specifically to find out more about harming
themselves or because they are considering suicide already. The question is
whether the online content triggers a response so that they self-harm or take
their own lives and we have found that there is a link.” Memory problems
may be more likely.
Even a rather typical session of social media
browsing can lead to information overload and make it harder to file away
information in your memory, according to Dr. Erik Fransén, professor of
computer science at Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology. A 2009 study from Stanford University
suggests that the brains of people who are constantly bombarded with several
streams of electronic information – from instant messaging to blogs – may find
it difficult to pay attention and switch from one job to another efficiently.
But it’s not all bad – in moderation, the Internet can actually boost brain
function. A 2008 study suggests that use of Internet search engines can
stimulate neural activation patterns and potentially enhance brain function in
older adults. “The study results
are encouraging, that emerging effects and potential benefits for middle-aged
and older adults,” the study’s principal investigator, Dr. Gary Small,
professor of neuroscience and human behavior at UCLA, said in a written
statement. “Internet searching
engages complicated brain activity, which may help exercise and improve brain function.”

What are the negative Effects of Social Media?
Waste of time many students find it difficult to go about their
normal life without making use of social media.
It has been observed that student does not listen in class; they are
busy chatting and reading stories online.
They waste their time chatting with friends and families; instead of
reading and practicing what they have learned in school. It is a bad idea to
waste away judicious time on social media platforms without gaining anything
“Students should not be
carried away by social media platforms because it will affect their academic
performance. It causes social problems
Social media has created many social problems in the society. In these modern days, many students tend to
choose online communication rather than having real time conversation, and this
leads to students becoming an introvert.
It Causes Health Problems The use of computers, mobile phones, and
various gadgets to access online platforms by students may harm the user if
they use it for long hours frequently.
Students may be exposed to bad posture, eyestrain, physical and mental
stress. Too much use of education
technology tools for accessing social media by students is harmful and there
must be a limit. All educational
stakeholders must ensure they coordinate the use of social media platforms by
setting up a policy that can help to regulate the negative effects aspect of
social media. Students must also be
ready to learn and listen in class; they should not make chatting their priority. Students should pursue an excellent academic
performance and gain adequate knowledge that will help them in the future.”

have noted a range of positive and negative impacts of social media use. Social media can help to improve individuals’
sense of connectedness with real or online communities, and social media can be
an effective communication tool for corporations, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit
organizations, including advocacy groups and political parties and governments.
” At the same time, concerns have been
raised about possible links between heavy social media use and depression, and
even the issues of cyber bullying, online harassment and
“Trolling”. Currently, about
half of young adults have been cyber bullied and of those, 20 percent said that
they have been cyber bullied regularly.
Another survey was carried out among 7th grade students in America,
which is known as the Precaution Process Adoption Model. According to this study, 69 percent of 7th
grade students claim to have experienced cyber bullying and they also said that
it is worse than face-to-face bullying.
However both the bully and the victim are negatively affected, the
intensity, duration and frequency are the three aspects that increase the
negative effects on both of them.”

Teen Social Media Addiction
two most dominating characteristics of Teen Social Media Addiction are the
large amount of time that teens spend on social media and the underlying
reasons why they’re doing so. “Teens with Social Media Addiction have an
almost constant nagging desire to check updates, write statuses, share a
picture, play a game, or engage in their social media world in some way. Along these same lines, another negative
effect of such overuse of social media is that teens become more willing and
skilled at socially interacting online rather than in person. Especially considering that adolescence is a
time when the development of social skills is especially valuable and necessary
in their lives, teens may likely be harming their in-person social skills by
retreating to the online world, choosing to interact in the cyber realm rather
than developing real social skills.” This can, in turn, hurt the teen’s
ability to function well and succeed in required social settings, like time at
school and making friends during extracurricular activities. It’s also become common for teens to actually
view and take part in their real experiences with a concentration on how it can
“Appear” in the social media realm, as opposed to just being present
in what they’re doing. For so many
adolescents that already experience this time of life as being full of
pressures to be “Good enough” in so many different ways and who
struggle with understanding their own identities, we find that the overuse of
social media is distracting and confusing to experiencing their own lives
honestly as well as discovering their identities in an authentic way. The first
and most primary function of Teen Social Media Addiction Treatment is to reduce
the amount of time that teens spend on social media. This may look different for different teens,
but will be implemented according to the teen’s specific situation. By helping to limit and restrict the amount
of time teens spend interacting in the social media realm; it automatically
helps to reduce the amount of time they spend preoccupied and distracted from
engaging in the real world. Therapists
simultaneously begin working with teens to evaluate and address what are the
underlying reasons, triggers, and beliefs connected to this overuse of social
media, as well as the negative effects, which this overuse has had. As teens
begin to make the connections between their overuse of social media and things
like strained relationships, trouble in school, and a constant feeling of being
distracted and anxious, therapists can lead them toward the bigger, more
underlying things that are at play. In
this sense, Teen Social Media Addiction Treatment often overlaps and intersects
with other treatment the teens might be engaging in, sometimes for things like
a Mood Disorder or Substance Abuse struggles.
Gradually, therapists want to help teens gain an awareness to make the
connections between all different areas of their lives, so that they understand
that their actions have consequences that may extend beyond their current

problem basically needs time kind of social media basically is ahead of us and
we can for all intents and purposes connect together without social media by
reading books research offline and group analysis, brain storming as a group,
or so they kind of thought. Social media is ahead of us we need this basically
much of time to literally stop being addicted to our cellphones and to mostly
let our brain this and recognize, which specifically is fairly significant. Our
brain basically is a diamond we basically have to concentrate and use it well
not specifically let social media and browser to mostly solve everything this
clash of generation we essentially have to use it in a fairly good way not to
remove our brain completely and for all intents and purposes let social media
literally destroy us very human beings are the sort of the best creatures and
we have to for all intents and purposes think and work pretty hard to
essentially get the information not getting everything for all intents and
purposes easy without thinking. Social media made us introvert and kind of
depressed unsocial and generally many teens actually are suffering for not
being with there parents in the actually social media activity this made a gap
from this generation and the past generation in a for all intents and purposes
