Social media has changed the way we view ourselves and the way we look at and perceive other things. Basically, changing the way we are interacting with everyone around.

Where using it keeps us updated and ahead at the same time it at times it can rob us of so many things. In recent times, there have been a thousand other complications and improvements taking place at the same time.

Negative effects

Whether it is getting addicted to other people, things, animals or just social media, addiction has never been a positive feeling to deal with. It can lower the level of motivation of the people and attention from the more serious things in life. The not so responsible children and the teenagers spend a considerable time of their lives on the internet without understanding its repercussions. There have been increased cases of cyberbullying and even more attempt to suicide and suicide cases due to this. 

Entering into somebody’s private lives

There are people who do not respect the privacy of others. In recent years, there have been many cases that have come up related to cybercrimes, violence. Promoting inadequate content on social media has lead to damage to the behaviour of kids and teenagers.

Just like there are two faces of a coin, there are somewhat similar effects of using social media to a certain access.

Studies have also shown that symptoms of anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder are triggered with the overuse of social media as the people are always concerned about the ways in which people communicate with others.

Being a trend and updating others of the personal life happening is a trend that we all need to keep up with and if that does not happen then we are not considered socially acceptable.

Nowadays, we see a lot of unique things happening on the internet and especially the teenagers are affected due to this because they believe that if they are not matching up to the standards that others set on the internet then they are somewhat lesser than the other people.
