Social media is a perfect way for an individual to express themselves. Whether its through
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr etc… No matter which Social Network they use people always find a way to express their feelings and interact with people. There are good things and bad things that come with social media. The good thing is that people who find it difficult to have a face-face conversation find the internet a good source of material to communicate with people without feeling self conscious or nervous. The bad thing is that SOCIAL MEDIA IS MAKING US ANTI-SOCIAL and this is what I’m going to be focusing on today.
We know that we all (myself included) spend hours and hours on our phone going on social media and we all know that its bad but we still do it because theres nothing else to do. This is stopping us from doing things and getting our work done. Spending a huge amount of time on social network makes us forget that we have a life outside social media and makes us forget about the terrible things that happens in the outside world. A lot has changed since like maybe 3-4 years ago, I look at little kids and i see them on their ipod’s, ipad’s and other other technology and it made me think about what might happened to them once their older and it really sadness me because when i think back to my time as a kid all i remember is playing game boy and pinball.
