No, I think social media should be restricted much like drugs and alcohol. Social media serves as a significant distraction, interrupting both their education and relationships with their family. When we check social media, whether we get a like or a message, our brain releases serotonin, improving our moods and generally making us feel good about ourselves

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com...

Thus, our brains make a connection between checking social media, and a release of serotonin; we check social media, we get a positive mood kick. Whilst conceptually serotonin is a great thing, it can lead to addiction, via things that cause it to be released within our brains, thus kids will be glued to their phones, forever desiring the release of such a desired hormone. The problem here is that we (prolonged social media users) now are so addicted to this release, we would rather achieve it that commit to some long term commitment, like studying or chasing other ambitions, our brains view it as a quick-release (but temporary) form of mood improvement, that is so much easier to achieve than consistent hard work in order to achieve good grades and generally succeed in life. Thus, kids should not be allowed social media due to increased risk of addiction and general interference with day-to-day activities, and potential future plans and ambitions.
