Social Media is Harmful: some aspects:
So we can say that social media is a medium of communication, social media communications reduces the distance between our loved once, it is giving business opportunities and it is a source of entertainment but there are some disadvantages of social media in our society.
Social Media is wastage of time, people wastes their precious time on social sites because they are addicted to use social media. Like if they do not check their messages and notifications daily they become crazy, this addiction is making them depressed and wild. Social Media is also increasing jealousy factor among teenagers, they want to buy luxury car and post car’s pictures on social media to make other people jealous. They want to eat in luxurious five star hotel to make other jealous. This jealousy factor is very dangerous, other people who see this kind of post starts losing confidence especially teenagers and sometimes they commit suicide.
For me, Suicide is the worst disadvantage of social media. Almost, 5000 teens commits suicide per year. The main causes are depression, jealousy and inferiority complex. Some teenager commits suicide, because they want to be like rich persons and celebrities also they want to become popular.
Another serious disadvantage of social media is obesity. It may harmful for health. Many people especially teenagers just stuck on their couch eating high calorie food, checking social media updates and playing games therefore they gain weight. They do not prefer outdoor activities like playing football, cricket and badminton so they become more lazy and fatty.
Social media is a way of easy communication with our relatives and friends and this media keeps our self updated but, we know that excess of everything is bad and it may be harmful for us. Social media is causing damages especially it is very harmful for our health we don’t exercise daily so it will be very dangerous in future. Teenagers should concentrate on studies instead of wasting their precious time on useless things.
