    No, wasting their time for young generation and for adult I think, If you 
    use them for work or something useful why not?

      I think all the time they are engaged in their phones neither interact with society nor have any social communications. These all skills theft by all social apps I think ... .

    This is a tough one. On one hand, I can imagine they spend a better portion of their day just staring at their phones looking at facebook. On the other hand, their are those you have the knowledge and drive to utilize the positive capabilities of social media to make the world a better place.

    But all in all, I think the majority just waste their time. This is anything in life, though. There are only a small percentage of people that have drive and ambition to make something of themselves.The rest of the population are the worker ants for those people.

      In fact , if we conclude its both positive and negative effects. Which effect increased among young generation, negative or posotive  ?

      I would have to say more negative because it is a more advanced outlet and more time consuming because it can be taken everywhere (smartphones). I think young people have a tendency to waste time and now technology gives them easier access 2 that

    I'm not really part of the "young generation" as I'm 26, but I wanted to add my positive spin to this...

    I've actually met several people who I consider to be good friends (that I now see regularly and hang out with in 'real life') on social media, so it has definitely been positive in my life. One of my friends was offered his dream job because of his Twitter feed, so I think he'd say it's been positive for him, too!

    You have the oppportunity to meet people who you actually have a lot in common with. I moved away from all of my childhood/high school friends when I was an adult and I found that it was hard to make whole new groups of friends as an adult. Most people already sort of have their own groups, and while I was accepted into some, I always felt like the tag-along.

    I'm also a stay at home mom so most of my days revolve around toddler-based activities and it can be hard to get grown up time in between. I find being able to send a tweet or post in a FB group every now and then to be at least some form of adult communication when I'm stuck at home on a rainy day or my daughter is entertaining herself at the park.

    It might be different for teenagers who are still in high school and have the opportunity to build long-lasting friendships with their peers, but I would hope most teens have some restrictions on their social media usage anyway. I don't see it being a problem as a supplementary means of communication with their friends. I used to spend hours shut away in my room talking to friends on the phone, so I guess I don't see spending hours talking to them on social media as being much different.

      Great answer. While I do consider you the young generation because of your age (never knew a time w/out cellphones or internet). I do think you r different because of your responsibilities. I can c u don't have time to waste. Good luck!

    It's quite tough to say that. Different types of teens use social media in different ways . I'm 16 so still a part of this 'young generation '. It isn't like I travel a lot but I've been to different places and as I grew up it became tough to go out and make some new friends . Social media makes it much easier to make friends and talk to them when you find time . I do consider them being just a 'work-around' of knowing people . You needn't directly go and talk to someone in order to get to know about them .On the other hand, there are people who waste their time chatting and liking posts when they could actualy meet them and hang out . Some teens try to use the social media to insult their haters anonymously or to just prove that they are sadistic . Their usage purely depends on their mindset . Ultimately , Positive attitude plus the Social media is , obviously , advantageous .
