“Honestly, I sometimes truly wish that ‘tools’ such as the iPhone (or any smartphone), laptops, iPads, tablets, etc. hadn’t been invented. Sure, they’re great, incredibly useful, and fun time-killers. But the way teenagers abuse them, and turn them into mini social control rooms is frankly awful.”
At first glance, you might think this quote came from a parent or grandparent lamenting on the disadvantages of social networking and how social media has doomed today’s children. But it was written by a Seattle-area tenth grader as part of an assignment to answer the question, “How has online social networking influenced your relationships with friends and family?”

Social networks are a waste of time for students. They allow students to cheat too easily. If students cheat, they will never learn to be responsible and they will never master the material that they are supposed to be studying. Students should not social networks, or they should only use them under supervision.
Social networking sites aren't beneficial for anyone, and that includes adults and students alike. For students, they are of a generation that has grown up around technology, are used to it, and believe it to be an end all for interaction, so for them it is more harmful. It is turning the next generation into narcissists.
Without a doubt, social networking sites are spoiling students and making them far less effective in school. Students would rather log onto Facebook than actually learn something while they're in class. Social media is a huge distraction for students and educators in classrooms around the country after all these days.
Kids don't have to work or make an effort to stay in contact with their friends or form relationships. They just follow each other around on social media sites to keep track of all the gossip. Gossip spreads much more on social media than through the classroom today. This can be very harmful for many kids.
Social networking are spoiling children because children would just keep on going to Facebook or Twitter all the time. Look at Instagram for example, a lot of kids would even post pictures of themselves and that would not be safe at all. Also, these could cause problems at school because some kids would feel like their not popular or a trendsetter. This often happens in high school especially in girls.
I believe that social networking sites do not spoil students. The social networks are the way that students keep in touch with each other. It is a way to let the world know what is going on in their lives. Social networks are simply a form of communication for students. Nothing about them spoils them.
Social networkd sites do not spoil students. It is a new technology advance being used so life has changed but it is not in a spoiling form. 20 years from now there will be different technology again and those who loved social networks will have to adjust to the new form.
No! Students can concetrate on more than opne thing in their lives! If you are working hard at school and when you get home you have done all of your homework, you are free to do whatever you like and if you go on a social networking site after, no harm is done!
