The internet has become a great place for teenagers to socialize. It has also become a place for bullying. Parents must be in control of their childrens internet activities. Like always it starts with good, smart parents!
Social media is thriving on sensacionalism. Do we need it in real life? Not really.
next to peers, media (movies, TV and Internet not so much print media) influences largely the behavior of the youth today. Youth look for model behavior and as we can see most of the things we see from media are not that good.
are you talking about facebook, twitter etc?? I don't know if they have age requirements for youth to join these social media sites. By the time they are 18, they are considered young adult, so they maybe influenced more by the trending of whats in today i.e., visual media.
I think the negative effects are more damaging than we can tell at this time. But on a social level and being able to communicate in the real world, I think it's very damaging.
As far as devices, I see so many young drivers texting and not looking while driving. I think parents somehow need to enforce no devices while driving.
They are becoming addicted to that..
if we consider facebook...there are many users especially teens..who are spending on facebook...
actually they are addicted to that.

We are living in the information age, which is a grand privilege for most or all of us. Information at our finger tips. Soon enough we will see the extinction of our favourite newspaper. Is it good or bad?
