Is Social Media helpful/useful?

Legend6321
Ssosme

In recent months and years, social media had been a cause of major controversy. This is a result of the conflict between two sides, privacy and publicity. These two sides have been gaining heat, especially in the eyes of the government and within the public. Social media is not useful and/or helpful because it lowers our personal ability to reason, socialize face-to-face, and takes away from precious time with family....

Companies are taking information from their customers and some of the information is personal. Personal information should stay personal. Some people don't even know that their information is being shared....

Should Students Who Post Threatening Comments On The Internet Be Arrested?

DiamondHeart

The student didn't actually have a big impact on society, and that student might just be playing a trick. Since he or she didn't really hurt anyone, they don't deserve to go to jail and be arrested. Young students, especially, couldn't have even thought about actually doing what they threatened about. Their brains are developing, unless they are college students, so their brains couldn't have possibly reached and thought beforehand about the consequences of threatening like how an adult can....

I believe that cell phone use should be allowed in school for reasons like what if we had lock down and we needed to contact our parents? We would need to call them to tell them that we are okay....

Teens or Tweens Should Not Have Smart Phones

I think no tween or teen should have a smart phone- at least not until high school. I'm not saying that they shouldn't have a cell phone. Cell phones that can only text or call are okay, but smart phones distract teens and tweens. They should be focusing on their studies and social life that's not in an electronic device. According to the statistics on http://readwrite.com/2013/04/08/teenagers-smar...

Should 12 year olds have a Cell Phone?

Liyah.here
TheOpinionist

I think 12 year olds should have a cell phone. Because most kids, like me, walk home or ride the bus home/to school and pretty much need a phone. Say one day what if "Miss Sally Sue" woke up late and rushed to get out the house, and catch the bus. Her parents left the house already and she needs to get out the house. So about time Sally goes to the bus stop, the bus just left. So sally waits and see if another bus comes. But another bus doesn't come. So Sally takes out her phone, and calls her m...

Android is a better platform than IOS

SongHaGin
ZacGraphics

I have used both platforms and I definitely prefer Android. Why? The first reason I have is that Androids are not restrictive at all, whereas apple is very restrictive. Apple is restrictive in their app store, and In the fact that you are strongly encouraged to buy music, whereas in android you could simply download a music app. Also, you can unlock androids way easier than Iphones. Lastly, there is certainly a wider array of phones to fit any type of person on android's side. Apple only...
