As stated in my Hypothesis, I have come to the conclusion that social medias are in fact a positive use of technology and other electronics devices today. Their existence has helped us in many ways and has provided us with open access to family and friends throughout the internet. However, there are many things to consider before using these sources. Many of the negative impacts of social medias can be resolved without actually getting rid of it completely. For example…
- spending less time online can improve your health and limit your risk of CVS and help you keep fit.
- If you start seeing signs of IAD than you need to stop what you’re doing and take a break from the internet.
- If you’re IAD gets out of control you can also go see a doctor or specialist.
- Parents should be more cautious of what they’re or their kids on reading and posting online.
- I you’re not 13 than you SHOULD NOT have a social media account anyway.
- Report signs of cyber bullying and don’t be afraid to tell and adult if you’re being bullied.
As long as you follow these guidelines you will have nothing to worry about. And you can enjoy social medias for as long as you wish.
Throughout my project procedure I noticed that there were a lot of different angles you could look at this project. What I mean by this is that there are a lot of different reasons why social networks can have a positive and negative affect on us and it’s hard to pick a side when you view all of them at once. If I were to redo my project from scratch, I would start by picking a specific area of research like how social medias affect our emotions or relationships and go from there. Then I could go a bit deeper in to the subject and maybe have a better understanding of the two sides. I would also consult the public more about their opinions on the subject and relate that to everyday life. In the end there really is no good or bad side. It’s all on the way people look at it.
Social media can be a very good thing for opening up and maintaining lines of communication. Businesses, individuals, and organizations can all benefit from this simple means of communicating. However, as with all forms of internet-based communications, it provides an easy means for abuse such as bullying, slander, and propaganda. Parents would be wise to monitor their children's use of social media.
I feel like the premise of social media is a decent idea. It is nice to stay in touch with extended family members and some friends and in that respect, I think it is a good thing. I believe, however, that people who introduced social media, now want to use it as an advertising platform, and that, to me, is bad.
Social media has brought many positive aspects to life which would not have been positive before.For example you can contact people far away that you might not have otherwise talked to.You can exchange valuable information even though you are far apart geographically.You can also catch up on the latest news.
Social Networking keeps people connected to their communities near and far. Connections made online often result in real-world meetings. It also allows people to easily expand their social horizons and create friendships with new people. These sites can cultivate true friendships because it allows people to get to know one another on a personal level without having to have face-to-face interaction.
Social media is useful. It lets girls spy on their boyfriends,
and grandmothers keep track of all of their grandchildren. That is, assuming
everyone is willing to use fake identities, and be a bit tricky. How many
grandmothers are pretending to be sweet sixteen? How many wives call themselves
dangerkitty42? Actually, social media use is apparently falling off, at least
on sites where it is too easy to snoop.
Social media is the devil! Honestly though, social media can destroy lives and friendships. I used to use social media a lot. Now I just use it for games... I have seen too many arguments escalate out of control. Also, people become addicted. Sure, anyone can become addicted to anything. However with social media, MOST people seem addicted.
Social media is neither good nor evil. It is a tool that people use as suits them. Some people use it for good, some people use it for evil. Applying values to a tool is not appropriate. What matters is how people use the tool and whether those uses add more to society than they take away.
