Social media is a useful tool for students to learn but as far as it's advantages are concerned, it is an unhealthy and dangerous too. It affects the students negatively sometimes. Innocent children and usually negatively impacted by what they have seen online on social media sometimes.
It worries me alot when I see the children under the age of 18 and using their internet facility because they are not matured at this stage fully and they don't know about it's side effects. The age of 18 is the quick age of learning so at this stage they should focus on their studies but this social media has distracted their minds and some of the childrens are so much addicted to facebook and other social media that they are usually 24 hours online. Instead of focusing on studies, they focus on their facebook.
Most of the childrens develop negative triats from this social media and destroy their whole life. Social media is damaging today's youth mentally too, causing depression and others.
But here arises a question that if social media for the youth under the age of 18 is banned, then how will they gain information regarding their studies as in social media alot of informations is available too.??
So I am nkt talking about that social media should be sompletely banned for everyone. I am just talking about those innocent children under the age of 18 who are not fully matured and don't know about it's consequences, who are so much addicted to these social media and can't focus on their studies.
There are alot of dangers in facebook and young children don't understand them. Most of the people have got psychological problems just because of the fake idz on facebook and then they got victim there because they don't understand it fully, they are not still mature.
It's my personally observation that it's not good for children because most of them think it's a site where informative articles are available, yes it's true informative articles are available but it has negative impact too.
So in short it depends upon the people how they use it. If they use it for positive pusposes it will help them but if they use it for negative purposes then it will harmfull for them.
