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?
