    Rachel, what a beautifully written piece. I love how you touch on the different races, religions, and cultures that encompass the United States. America truly is a society of mixed races. People have come from all over the world, and some are unaware of their ancestral background. You should take a look at this website:…Read More

  • Colin, this was a very great summary. You included evidence about laws that have been passed, fatalities, and different statistics about different age groups. I like how you also touched on both sides and explored the outcomes from different ages. I really liked the reference to the “forbidden fruit” and how it is actually a “rotten apple.” I…Read More

    • Jenessa,
      This was a great post that really captures the dangers of social media in 2 major points. The physical deterioration of the eyes is unfortunately true, https://www.huffingtonpost.com/jacob-liberman-od-phd/phone-eyesight_b_978468.html. But also the social aspect. If people stopped comparing themselves to others and worked on being their best selves, we wouldn’t have these problems. Thank you for sharing.

    • Tbh I really love this post as much as every teen loves their phone and says they can’t live without it sometimes I wish we got the time to. Recently I broke my phone and didn’t have use of it for a few days throughout those few days i felt a mix emotions. I had a little bit of a withdrawl and it was hard not to communicate constantly with my friends but at the same time it felt nice to not have everyone in charge of the amount of energy you have to give them. As for the topic of social media ruining self image i agree with this 100%, social media is creating unrealistic expectations for teens to try to strive and its messing with peoples self confidence. Again I love that you wrote this, we need to find a way to loosen ties with our phones before its too late.

    • Jenessa,
      I liked that you organized your article in two very throughout paragraphs discussing two very different, but very real, negative affects of social media. I knew that social media and technology as whole affects our self image and social aspects but I never knew it had so much to do with our physical health. It scares me to know technology is physically hurting us yet we still persist using it. After reading this article from psychology today, https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/happiness-in-world/201006/the-effect-technology-relationships, I learned a lot more about technologies affects on us specifically our relationships, which you might find interesting. I look forward to hearing more.

    • Jenessa,
      I found your post on the physical dangers of social media very interesting. I often have difficulty sleeping and have wondered if there could be a correlation between using my phone before I go to bed and the quality and/or duration of my sleep. I also wear glasses and annually I have to get a stronger proscription, and it is alarming to think that my eyesight could be worsening due to the time I spend looking at my screen. I found an intriguing article which details some of the detrimental affects that social media has on individuals, and I think that you might find it interesting. I posted the link below.
