Everywhere I Go I see Idiots Making Idiotic jokes and references about social media and now we are number 25 in academics and back when Reagan was in office we were number 1

Well. I believe if our youth continues to to use social media, their grammar will slowly become imperfect. With all the slang out in our virtual world, the lack of dicipline with create a youth lacking in proper grammar and vocabulary. Also it will decrease the amount of knowledge with spelling.

Social media is a form of technology and saying that it is ruining today's students is like saying that the invention of the car made people fatter. While both may be true, you have to think about how social media has advanced the world. "Wow people say dumb things" literally get over your arrogant sense of anti-social-media supremacy. The only argument you can make is you being annoyed by some fad memes,
