In the article ¨ The Implementation of Social Media in school ¨ (McGraw Hill) I learned that social media could be bad for your mental health and your physical health. people could emotionally hurt themselves by posting pictures or videos. Some examples that were provided were that young people increase the risks of depression and anxiety.

I think this is not fixable unless the teenager doesn’t have a phone. people are going to keep on getting these types of feelings because people think they can say whatever they want behind a screen and if it doesn’t affect them then either they don’t care or want to have fun bullying you because they think it’s all fun and games. What I also think about this situation is that if teenagers didn’t have a phone there wouldn’t be such a huge problem.

If teenagers didn’t have social media would they be living a healthier lifestyle emotionally and mentally?

Dear Jeremiah, I agree with your post about “social media is bad for the brain” because social media can affect people today. Little comments from people can depend on how someone works and feels.. Depression is something that individuals face and struggle with.

Something I wonder is if social media will ever become something positive to look at.

Sincerely. Judith castro

Dear Jeremiah, I am shocked about your post about “social media is bad for the brain” because it is hard seeing people and kids suffer what they go through when people bully them through the internet. It is sad how people are suffering from depression and anxiety.

I think that that’s really sad what they go through and doesn’t affect the other person. I hope more people will see this as not a place to bully but a place to laugh.

Thanks for your post I will think more about it.

Dear Jeremiah, I’m a little surprise about your post because it is true, but how people use to suffer and get hurt in social media. Is so bad seeing something in social media that affects your sensitivity, Is true that we all have different feelings, but people should have consideration at the time of posting something because it could hurt somebody, we need to check carefully at the time of posting a phrase or picture, in order to avoid hurting other people. One sentence that stands out for me is “I think this is not fixable unless the teenager doesn’t have a phone.”, this is something hard to get because of communication, everybody is having phones. I agree with you in your argument, is true, is incredible how easily we can get hurt now days. Thank your for writing and expressing your feelings.
