Social media has increased in popularity ever since the idea of smart phonesand tablets started to appear for sale; there are various types of “Social apps”, where millions of people can create their own profile and communicate witheach other.

While one may think social media only consists of contacting friends and sharingmemories, the use of social has started to become the complete opposite of itspurpose.

With social media being apart of their lives the majority of the time, theyexperience the images and other posts, which reflect on social media’s ideal”Beauty”.

In a article published in 2015 titled, “Concerns about Children, Social Media andTechnology Use”, studies have shown that one-in-three parents have gainedconcern over their children’s use of social media within a year.

Despite a percentage of parents showing concern on how their children use andview social media, there is a majority of parents, who believe they should notget involved in their children’s social life.

With the idea of parents becoming involved with their children social media, itcan create an impact within the relationship whether or not the parents actuallyexpress concern.

Despite social media making more of a negative impact on boys and girls, rather than creating a positive experience, there are solutions towards howsocial media could end up improving one’s self-esteem.
