Do social media sites have a positive influence on society?

Asked by: lsgallery
  • Social Media connects us together.

    Social Media sites were created for people to communicate with others outside of just actually physically being in contact with one another and it's do exactly that. Before social media, it was extremely difficult for me or my family to communicate with out extended family found in other parts of the world, however thanks to social media we can now do this on a daily basis which is really great.

  • Social media good or bad?

    This debate that I have created is for an assignment for university. The title of my topic is my hypothesis for the assignment and i have to carry out an experiment to test it. I am neither for or against social media as i believe it depends on the individual using it and how it is being used.

    I just want to know what other peoples opinions are on the influence social media has on society.

  • Social media creates a negative mindset on teenagers body images with the usage of photo-shop

    When we flick through a magazine, we can tell the photos have been ‘retouched’ but on Facebook or Instagram, we see the photos as ‘raw’ and therefore have this feeling that our body should be up to that expectation of flawless skin and no fat. But in reality, these photos have been retouched over and over again making these models perfect. This is what you call photo-shop. And when we see all these models in magazines or on social media we wish we could look like that but I mean who really does look like that. (pause) Many girls feel the need to stop eating because of what they see online to what they see in the mirror. And even in today’s society, kids younger than us, use free apps to create a ‘fake’ self. But this is what society has done to us teenagers. It has put this negative mindset into our heads saying that we should be looking like some, Victoria Secret model who eats only 2 meals a day. No sugars and no carbs. But we should be accepting ourselves no matter what we look like.

  • I do not agree with social media being good.

    1.Social media does not have a positive influence because you can get to addicted to it, and forget about socialising with the real world.
    2. 40% of teenagers have witnessed or been cyber bullied on social media, which leads to depression, or even worse, committing to suicide.
    3. People can stalk you and track you down.
    4. You pretend to be anyone you want, and no one could ever find out, or pretend you are on holiday, when really you are just at the local pool.
    5. On social media you can lie about people and yourself.

  • Decrease in Personal connection

    It is a shame because it seemed to have great potential to increase our "connectedness", but in reality seems to create more distance. There is less empathy in electronic communications, combined with less quality "in person" time, modern social media has a tendency to be an opiate to the masses even more so than television. It also has a tendency to make us more callous in our real world relations.

  • It is not beneficial.

    While social media is a fun thing to have and makes it easier to keep up with friends, it also produces a negative effect among teens, especially. It makes it easier to ruin each other's lives by a simple type and text. People have an easier time spreading rumours and degrading each other when it's almost instantaneously available. There isn't any time to think in today's mind, and everyone does whatever they want, not thinking about the consequences. It also spreads the unrealistic images that people want for people. Plus, people are attached to their phones and don't have enough face-to-face time at all anymore. All in all, while it is fun and entertaining, it is more negative to me.
