I think social media can be a good thing but also a bad thing it all depends on how you use it because if you are using it so you can obsess over how people see you or what people think it can be bad. If you use social media as a way of meeting new people and expanding your connections I think it can a good thing.
10/1/2021 08:55:03 am
I think social media is a good thing to have. It makes it easier to talk to friends and see what they are doing. I think social media can be a good thing and a bad thing for teenagers. It can be good because it makes it easier to communicate with friends and see what's new in the world. It can be bad because it makes you compare yourself to the things you see there. It sets an unrealistic expectation of how life should be and it can damage the self esteem of teenagers.

I think social media is overall a good thing but most people abuse it for bad things. It can help teens find groups of people with similar interests as them. But then there's people who think being anonymous online is protective enough where they can start trying to cause harm to real people.

My opinion on social media is that it is good and bad. The positive thing about social media is we can learn about other cultures and people, connect with our friends and also spread news around very quickly, however the negative thing about social media is people become addicted to it and spend hours of their day on it instead of being active. Another negative thing is social media portrays perfect lives or people that make others sad they can't have which can hurt a lot of peoples mental health.

My opinion on social media is that it is a way to interact with friends. I think it is both negative and positive for the health of teens because it is a way to stay connected to the world and keep up with the things you like. On the other hand it also negative because it you gives a negative ideal on what your supposed to look like or be.

I feel like social media can be a both positive and negative thing based on how you use it. Social media can be a positive thing because people use it to interact with friends and family. It can be a negative thing because many people, especially women, try to compare themselves and try to be like the things they see on social media. This can cause a big problem on people's mental health because instead of focusing on themselves and being grateful for what they already have, they try to change themselves and have other things just because an influencer on social media looks a certain way or has certain things.
10/1/2021 09:07:53 am
My opinion on social media is interesting. Many teen have a habit of comparing there lives with people they see on social media.It can be possible for teens to feel insecure because they either wish they look like a super model or a bodybuilder. When u wanna visualize social media in a good way it can be used to meet or interact with new people. Many people can use it as insperation to doing new things with themselves or with family and friends.
10/1/2021 09:13:07 am
My opinion about social media is that it distract you from a lot of things like on doing homework, cleaning up your room etc.Social media is a really toxic place it literally ruins your mental health in so many ways but at the same there's people in there that could make your days feel better or get better.
10/1/2021 09:27:42 am
I feel that social media can be a mixture of both positive and negative for teens at times. Social media has times where people show good positive energy out to each other and share encouraging thoughts but at the same time people use it to bash people and make people feel little of there selves. Social media is a way that some people make there money which is positive but we have people who hate to see others doing well so they try to bring negativity. For some teens i would say social media is negative in some ways.

my opinion about social media is that it can be bad but also good because if you use it to meet new people it can be good but also bad because many people fake who they and pretend to be someone they aren't. Also social media can ruin your life because it can cause drama and different type of bad feels towards people and also it can be good to connect with others like friends or family on whats gonna happen and other stuffs.

10/1/2021 12:30:29 pm
My opinion on social media is that it all depends on you for example if your account is public or private, who you follow, the things you post etc. if you see something you don't like the best thing to do is keep scrolling, because it also depends on how you feed into the things you see.

i believe that it is mainly a negative place for people who aren't prepared as there will always be people who insult others and do a little bit of trolling, ( me ). so if people aren't prepared to receive those types of comments i believe it would be for the best if they did not engage because it could harm their mentality, but it is also a great place to engage with other people and make friends with similar hobbies and intrests as you.
10/1/2021 12:31:21 pm
Social Media is bad the things that people post,say because that could ruined some peoples life the way people want to expose others for no reason but its not sometimes bad because you could connect with your family,friends, and others so you could see them when your far away.

I think social media is a good thing. I mean yes it can bring you together with others, if you have family in a different country. You guys can connect through social media, that's a good thing about social media. But I believe social media has two sides, there's a good side that's all positive and then there's a bad side that's negative, of course. I think some of the positive stuff about social media is sharing about like fundraisers or gofundme's. But there's always something negative about social media, whether it's someone talking bad about another person or if they're criticizing how someone looks, you know? I also believe some people think they're expected to look like some of the models on social media, it brings your self-esteem down. But, I believe social media is a good thing because it connects you with others:).

Social media can also be positive by entertainment, inspiration, and keeping up with your friends and family as well as keeping up with news.

I think social media is a positive and negative thing. It can be a positive thing by being entertained, getting good feedback, or making money. But it can be negative because you can get hate, or bad feedback, and cyber bully throughout social media. Being cyber bully can lead to depression and suicide. Also people can compare themselves with other people and overthink how they look.
10/6/2021 10:43:24 am
I think social media is both positive and negative because it can help you set goals, it can help you stay in contact with others, it can help you stay in focus with what is going on in the world. But it can also affect you in a bad way by cyber-bullying, comparing yourself to celebrities and models, and not everything on social media can be true. Someone can post a lie about another person or a company can lie about their product and many will believe it but watch it cause harm.

My opinion on social media is that it is okay. I know there are lots of positive and negative things about it. I think it is positive if it causes you to be happy and affect you or your life in a "good" way. I think it is negative when it starts making someone feel bad or hurt someone in a negative way. When you start feeling sad or upset about yourself or something, then that is when it becomes negative.
10/6/2021 10:45:37 am
Social media is a way to interact with one another. In a way social media can be positive and negative. You can catch up with people or see the latest trends but its also negative by also putting negative news on the platform.

In my opinion social media is both positive and negative and many ways . It can be positive in the way that people use social media to catch up with friends and family through social media . Another positive thing is that people make a living out of social media they get paid through those apps . But at the same time it's negative because it causes body dysphoria . Another way it is negative is that social media also causes cyber bullying . Social media can be used as human trafficking which is a negative impact of social media platforms.

In my opinion, social media is a good thing as long as people control their usage of it. Social media is supposed to be used for fun to be able to share more about yourself to the public,have communication with others, and be able to see what others are up to. Social media isn't supposed to have a negative impact by allowing it to take over your life and go on there just to criticize. Social media is a good thing but not when you let your life revolve around it.

Social Media has a great effect on mostly people of a younger age. Social Media puts on a act that we need this and we need that but we do not. When a female looks at social media they see females who promote their body and brand and how they get it. Now this is why females feel like "Oh, This is what pretty looks like". She gets these many views and likes and a people like to look at her because this is what people like for females. That leads to depression and suicidal thoughts because she don't feel pretty because she don't get the likes and views as others. For a young mind they see people making money without an education just off social media so they feel like they can do the same but it doesn't work like that.

As well as seeing it as an escape or to relieve stress by using her time on social media. It can also be negative when it comes to mental health or getting distracted when trying to do something. Many people use these big platforms in a negative way to cyber bully and many other things.

You should be ready for any link or things like that, which might have as purpose to get your personal information and use it for illegal things; other things as cyber bullying, kidnaps, etc. can affect us. That's why I think kids should not have access to social media. It is a big responsibility to have social profiles, and it will negatively affect us if we are not smart enough.

Social media is a tricky topic because there's many positives and negatives to it. Social media is all around us and we can't really avoid it. While it's everywhere, you can have some type of control over it. Social media can have many benefits such as connecting with family around the world, meeting new people, and entertainment in general. Even with all the benefits, social media has many issues, such as wasting your time, getting harassed, and being brainwashed into many ideas and stereotypes. Overall I don't think it's bad, but the people behind these apps need to do better at controlling the content and others need to manage their time well with social media.
10/6/2021 10:52:04 am
I believe that social media can both be positive and negative. It can be positive in a way where it makes it faster for you to find out about stuff and being ale to communicate with the people you want to communicate with.

Social media in many ways is bad, but there are many ways that it is still beneficial. Social media can have a lot of bad influence on younger generations, it can give people a false sense of reality. It can also be dangerous when it comes to meeting people, for example you don't always know who is behind the profile, which makes it easier for predators to find information on certain people. But there is also many benefits to using social media. You can talk to friends and family that you don't always see on a daily basis. You can share photos and see photos of your friends and family, which lets you know how people are doing. Many people also make a living through social media.

I believe social media's cons outweighs it's pro's. Some benefits of social media is it's an easy form of communication. It can also work as a method to expand's one business/creative ideas. Social Media has also worked as ways to bring light on important issues such as political,racial,social,economic etc. issues. It's con's include having a negative influence over society. Social media affects many's daily life. One example is physical appearance. Social media has greatly influenced the body standard and definition of attractive. It's so controlled to where it leads to people to doing unimaginable things just to meet those standards. It also affects many through the online bullying and harassment. The amount of things said on social media affect people so much to the point of leading them into depressions, having suicidal thoughts etc. In my opinion social media has a more negative aspect over positive views.

It's a negative thing because many people see false information to make them believe in things that aren't true. People also see things that other people have and get sad or depressed for not being like them or have the same things they own. It's also positive because you can see the news about the area you live in or learn about things you like like cars, history, and many other things.

In my personal opinion , social media is a overall good thing. Like everything in life , it has its flaws . We cant blame social media for what humanity decides to publish on it . The app itself does not do anything wrong , its the people who decided to add the negativity. It helps people communicate on different levels and locations , share your life with friends and family , and create a form of making new friends and see others people lifestyles . If someone wants to make that negative , thats their issue.

There is also many cons like the brainwashing f fake body image that benefits the own companies. This leads into depression or low body image to these mostly impacted by teens. Then there is even cyberbullying. There is also many fake news that can be posted by many. There is hackers who can also affect many like taking money or even kidnapping.

Social media can be positive but also negative for some people. Social media had help in many occasions problems that people are able to see by sharing any information, for example people can communicate any emergency or incident (kidnapping). By this I can tell that people were being saved because of knowledge of the situation. Social Media had turned useful to many people. On the other hand social media can also be dangerous to teenagers because kidnappers or stalkers can lie by pretending to be another person just to get the attention of little kids or teenagers. But also this had turn to addiction/distraction for all people.
10/6/2021 02:03:03 pm
I believe that social media is bad and good depending on the issue.The point that the news says is a great example of social media being bad, social media has a lot of propaganda, false information that can change the way people are , they change there actions , and change the way they see them self. But social media has been around for a long time and we can all say that the one thing about having social media is that we can communicate with one another, it can also tells us news.

The good in social media can come with helping out with things and get stuff done much faster because alot of people all over the world use it.

To me social media has a good side and a bad side. The good thing about it is that if you have something important to say that you want the world to know social media can help with that. Its also a good way to socialize with friends and family. The bad thing about it is that you see a lot of things on it and probably spend most of your time on it like me. Social media is pretty addicting and can lead to stalking people. In social media you can get people information easily which is dangerous. Another thing is that once you put something out there and it goes viral theirs no way of getting it out. Therefor social media can impact in both a good and bad way.

It is also good as entertainment and even as a source of knowledge, you can make plenty of people that share your interests and thats great,communities created in social media are important. But we are humans, we know the world we live on and therefore we know that there is people who make social media a bad place to be in: misinformation, spread of hate, loss of time are examples of how social media are bad for people.

Also helps the community to know what is happening around the world. Social media also works to make publicity about big and small business. Thru Social media we can be aware of political, and social problems. In other hand social media is also negative, because it shows not real images of people and situations. There is also a lot of abuse, such as cyberbully, that way teenagers become antisocial and depressed. Another reason social media is negative is that there is a lot of fraud and identity theft.

In my opinion social media is both negative and positive. Social media damages mental health with all the cyberbullying on the internet. It is also used for positives reasons like spreading body positivity and awarness.

Elizabeth talked about how social media can damage mental health & how it can negatively impact someone, and I completely agree with her. Social media can be a very toxic platform for a lot of people.

I think that social media is both negative and positive,Some negative affects are the fact that many teenagers spend hours in a day on social media because it's so addicting and can construct unrealistic beauty standards in society, and can easily spread misinformation.Some positive affects are that news can be easily spread and seen by everyone if they have access to internet.

I think social media is both negative and positive it just depends on how you using. Some people use it to bullied other people or to post bad things about others. And some people use it to bring awareness to an issue or tries to help other people by just reposting their situation; and then other people help them.
