  • Social media is harmful to society!

    Social media is harmful to society. It is. Look at those people who use Facebook. Look at the people with Twitter. Look at the guys with iPhones. How do we know they have iPhones? Because they hold it in front of their faces, texting, and using social media. This is harmful. While YOU could be spending time doing other USEFUL activities, you shouldn't been facing a screen, clicking and chatting.

  • More of A weapon than social network

    The social networks like Twitter, Facebook, instragram and all those other social networks, all have one thing in common and that is cyberbullying. Anybody can do it, especially on the internet. Its bad enough to be bullied in school but just when you think your safe at home you open your facebook to see your messages full with harmful letters or threats. The social network has given people A way anonymously threaten A person withought getting in trouble for it since most kids today almost never tell their parents what's going on in their lives. Honestly I liked it better when we didn't have all this nonsense and I am sure most people would agree with me.

  • It allows other people judge you!

    Whatever you post on your fb , instagram or twitter, it would be yours own thoughts but other narrow minded people may judge you according to that. They may form an opinion about you and pass on that to others, which hence will ruin your image in the society and most importantly in front of your parents.

  • Tracking is way to easy

    It is super easy to tell where someone took a picture in instagram. If someone took a picture in your house, the dude now knows where you live! And people in other social sites have had their share of human trafficking! Remember that girl with liver cancer (maybe, maybe not) She died because she trusted a pedo on kik!

  • Does more bad

    To certain extent I agree that social media does more harm than good. One reason being is that things that get posted on the internet even if deleted will stay be on there. One of this can be girls/boys sending inappropriate pictures of themselves to one another. Doing this mostly means these pictures will most likely be passed on. This cause unstoppable harm and hatred towards this person. Also this person will be bullied either on the internet or face to face. However, most likely they would be bullied on the internet. They would be sent messages like death threats or other horrendous messages.

  • I do agree with what you are saying

    I agree with the fact that you want to talk to family half way around the world but if you spend 1 hour a day on social media it adds up to 9 weeks total. Imagine what better things you could have done in those 9 weeks. Not to mention that it can become a very abusive and be the cause of multiple suicides. I know that I'm starting to get gruesome but the truth is social media really does do more harm then good.

  • Social media is a very stressing thing nowdays

    Only last night I found out that you can't make snapchat private so because I had a locked phone I was worried that I would get hacked and because of that I logged out of snaphat then i deleted it and that made my worry's fly out of the window!!!!!!!!!

  • Social media does horrible things to your mental health

    Social media is inappropriate and dangerous. Cyber bullying is a huge problem. It causes insecurity in children and adults. Social media should at least have better security that can not be hacked. Social media is bad and should be stoped . Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Because I said so . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • It does not.

    Social Media is for those people who have friends in high away places. (IE: Far away) While they may be able to phone them, it just isn't convenient. This is where Social Media can come into play. It's a chat window that anybody can check at any time. What's your sister up to? Oh, she's having a soccer contest next Saturday. People who are her friends can see this without her having to call/post a letter to everyone. It's more convenient to do so. Also, cyberbullying is easily stopped with the "Ignore" and "Block" function that phones/social media sites offer.

  • I do not think so. I think it's a bit like sugar.

    Unless, of course, you let it rule your life and you do lose the ability to disconnect or unplug yourself from it. Like any tool, it's all about how and why we use it. I very seldom use Facebook but it has proved useful, it is an easy way for my family and friends, dispersed across several continents to keep up with each other, share photos and so on. I do not feel compelled to update my status or tell the world I've made yet another cup of tea or that I'll be washing my hair later.

    When I am out with friends or with family, I do not check my phone, when I am on holiday, I stay away from the Internet. Yes, it can be highly addictive (as can a lot of tech) and a lot of the activity that goes on there could be classed as fairly pointless but, it also has served some pretty cool purposes, Facebook and Twitter played a large role in organising protests during the Arab Spring, and that is just one example of how they can be used for non-asinine activities.

    Just as it us up to us to eat a healthy and balanced diet if we wish to live and be well, it's also up to us to make space and time for the things that matter.

  • Cyberbullying is now not much of trouble

    Eg. Bethany mota got out of her grey clouds through YouTube which is a social media. You can also connect with your family or friends. I have a friend who migrated to Arizona and we still know what is happening to each other through instagram, facebook so on and forth. Id you are unale to unplug from it, then it'll be a different thing.

  • There is bullying

    It is just wrong people know you're information and bully you they tease and laugh and make bad comment. Don't you people understand the danger around you and the this and you give detail for people to track you down you are like a prey and they are like a predator.

  • It is a distraction to students from their studies

    Students get distracted from their studies by their posts on those sites, or messages that they get from their friends. This cause them to waste their time while replying their friends. They also neglect ther homework while socialising with their friends. Hence, it basically has more negative effects than positive.

  • Social media does more good

    For me, social media does more good. You should know how to utilize it. Social networking sites helps in connecting friends who live in far off places. Search engines like Google are helpful as we can get loads of information. From my point of view, it's a very beneficial thing.

  • More good than bad.

    What if you are 10000 miles away from someone and you are trying to contact them or their family? Then these networks are lifesavers. If you have a group of friends and you move to the other side of the globe then these websites help you keep in touch. I personally think that they do more good than bad but i DEFINITELY respect anyone else's opinions.

  • No, not really...

    You say bullied? Be strong and ignore. Sooner or later the "bullies" will ignore you. You say we spend too much time sticking our face to the screen. Well not all people are the same. Some people know how to balance virtual and reality. So if you want the rest of the world to do that teach the next generations since young, and the rest of the generations will do the same.

  • Social Media is GOOD....(for me)

    It has helped me stay in constant contact with my friends from previous schools, organise outings and stay updated through whatsapp groups. I've been able to teach myself bboy or breakdancing through youtube and learn more about my schoolmates through instagram and twitter. In a nutshell it depends on the purpose of social media for the individual.

There's a whole bunch of interesting articles on the subject of how social media can, in fact, prove rather anti-social and has the potential to cause us unhappiness and stress (we really don't need), here's a couple:

Basically, you've got to be strong and confident if you're going to swim in those shark-infested waters! (sorry sharks, i do actually like you very much and we are more of a threat to you than you are to us!)
