    First, loss of privacy is a fundamentalproblem and it is very easy to use this social networking site because socialmedia network users can put personal information and are actually easy toaccess by other users to view the personal information.

If students are dissatisfied theyare arbitrarily depriving the dissocial media so everyone can read and share,because the reputation of a department or individual will be bad and fall andhave violated their privacy rights and misuse of social media has taken place.Social network users claim to be worried about the risks to privacy, but notleast to protect their information (Dwyer et al., 2007).

     Second, sexual predators are a very seriousproblem unnoticed. Too many cases related to losing privacy. Because tooobsessive, the users accept the followers to make their followers a lot andaccept it without knowing the person, and users also often upload privatepictures so that users often forget not every good person is in the world. For example,the case of a man aged 42 was disguised as a 16-year-old teenager to getacquainted and communicate with the girls privately. Due to the many cases likethis, many children or teenagers became victims of predators through online.      Third, cyberbullyingis a deed through social media networks such as damaging or harassing otherusers in the way of insulting, mocking.

Because of appreciating time, it canactually be used for activities more productive. Paul, Baker, Cochran in 2012has written the impact of social media use on students in academic performance.Increasingly time spent by students in online social networking hasdeteriorated student performance in learning.

Addictive online socialengagement involves a negative impact on academic performance. (Kirschner &Karpinski, 2010). Accordingto the study, Malaysians among countries reported to have a large number offriends and spend more time on social media such as Facebook because ofaddiction. The enthusiasm of Malaysian citizens for Facebook is very clearwhether students or the public. (The Star, 2010). While Facebook is used toconnect with the public and improve the student’s social life, it is also notedthat excessive use of Facebook has a bad effect. As a matter of fact, the termDependency of Facebook Disturbance (FAD) was created to refer to the negativeimpact of excessive use of Facebook (Fenichel, 2009).      Fifth,reduction in real human contact isstudents who spend too much time on social media actually spend less time socializingwith others.

It reduces their communication skills. They cannot communicate andsocialize effectively. Many complaints from employers during interviews aregraduates of the current lack of communication skills that the graduates shouldknow and be clear that communication skills are very important duringinterviews and work. While working we need to communicate with a wide range ofpeople, and students should be willing from now on. The key to success iscommunication skills.

This causes the student’s creative writing skillsto diminish and deteriorate.Seventh,effect on health excessive use of this social media will have a negative impactespecially on the students in terms of health and mentality. Learners shouldhave enough rest so that they are happy to receive knowledge easily but becauseover time with the use of social media students are willing to not take theright food at time and they are willing to take excessive coffee to stay activeso that it can affect their health. Because they do not have enough rest, thestudents will feel lethargic and inactive like other students and they also cannotfully accept the knowledge.    In conclusion, social media can actuallyendanger yourself, especially to students.

Not everyone uses social mediatowards a good goal. Age restrictions are no longer a barrier to exploring thesocial media environment. This social media network site has become popular andhas been growing rapidly due to users of university or college and teenagerswho are widespread in gaining access to global access. However, at present,communities and responsible parties should be aware and strengthen the securitylock on illegal sites that should not be explored. Your parents must also playa role in knowing their social media activities and keeping them in use withthe appropriate period. Teachers and colleagues should also help them avoidbeing exposed to social media and inform social media misuse.
