Social Media is a websites or application that enable users to create, share content and involved in community in the world. It give us many advantage if we use wisely.
But many of us get addicted to social media that effect their life. The addiction of social media will cause our life with wasting time, anti sosial and involved with bad people. Firstly , social media is wasting our time . It can be useful if we use wisely . But, how many of us wasting our time in social media site like Facebook , Instagram and Twitter?. As a teenager , we usually addicted to upload our picture in media social site .
For example , when we upload a new pictures , we expect to receive as many likes as possible. As stated in CNN article is after they learn that they supposedly received a lot of likes after upload their own pictures , they actually just activation in part of the brain’s reward circuity (Susie,2016). That shown the act will effect our brain to get satisfied to upload more than one pictures . Next, we waste our time by playing online game . We already know that social media site like Facebook have provide their user a game to attract our attention to spend more time using that application .The article in Livestrong.com stated that if student devotes more than one or two hours a day to television or video games, he may have trouble falling asleep, have problems paying attention and have lower test scores than other students who don’t spend as much time in front of a television or video game console(Drea,2017) .
So , we should control ourselves to use wisely and do not spend too much time on social media site . Next , person who obsess with social media usually do not like to involve with other people . They have loss of interpersonal communication .
For example, they only know to communicate with other people through chatting room and do not know how to communicate face to face . It will cause a big problem in the future because they will lack of confident to meet other people because they already create their own world in social media . When they do a same thing everyday , they would demand to do more that that . The author state in his article ; they demand for more freedom after they realized the freedom they got is just by sitting in front of computer (Abhishek,2015).
That statement prove addicted to social media is starting problem that will effect teenager in the future . Furthermore , they will live in their virtual world because they believe that through the social media network , they can do anything like they can make new friends, comment on lives of others and even create new identities. This freedom enthralls them (Lisa,2017) . This happen because they do not realize the danger they could be in.Then, we maybe get involve with bad people. As usual, we must addicted to make new friend without realize that we have formed connections with people whom we didn’t know outside of media sosial site.
The most important thing we easily share our privacy information with our friends. The author state in article; Most of the time, the users themselves are to blame as they end up sharing content that should not be in the public eye (Gaitho,2017). For example, we share a lot of our location in media social site like Facebook that can be danger for us because maybe one of our friend had bad intention to us. Possibility to be stalking by unknown people higher when we easily give our privacy information. Another point regarding social media use is cyber bullying.
The article state; Enough is Enough (EIE) is an organization that aims to make Internet use safer for children and families state that 95% of teenagers who use social media have witnessed forms of cyberbullying on social networking sites and 33% have been victims of cyber bullying (Honor,2015).In conclusion, we should use social media platform wisely because it can be dangerous if we can’t control ourself for being excited while use it. It will be waste our time because spending too much time in social media site , became someone that anti-sosial and addicted for making new friend through that site.
