#SocialMedia Friend or Foe?
The first article about social media portrays it in much more of a negative light than I feel like it should be. Maybe since I’m a teenager and grew up using social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, I’m a little bias but I feel like they help us more than hurt us. A person can learn a lot from the internet; it is very important that you are able to use the internet as a “source” in everyday life. I will admit that some people do in fact use the internet too much and rely on it more than they should, but others know how to control their “addiction” to it.
I can relate when Steve Pinker talks about training yourself to be able to do one task. You must learn more information about what you want to know. I don’t think some people understand that, I think they feel as though if they are ...view middle of the document...

That’s when the use of social media becomes too much.
I was surprised about some of the facts on those videos, for instance how many people are still joining Facebook every day. Maybe because I have had it so long that I can’t believe that so many people still don’t have it, and that such a greater number of people are just now jumping aboard the bandwagon. I was also surprised on how much more hours of video you can find on YouTube, that just seems crazy to think that it is increasing by that much each day.
I feel like I use these social media websites a lot more now that I’m in college because in high school all of these sites were blocked when I was at school. In college your professors are not as strict on what you are doing during class; you pay to be here, so basically you are just paying to be on Facebook and Pinterest. I also have more free time outside of class to waste time on the internet. Being that I am so far away from my friends and family the internet is a very good way to stay in touch with them and know what is going on in their life.
Although I feel as the internet is a good object to use, but I think that in the future it will ruin some aspects of life. Such as communication, people will not know how to interact with others. You will become so used to texting or facebooking someone that when you are together it just won’t be the same. Even when you are face-to-face with someone, you will be focused on checking your phone so much to the point that you will not be paying attention to each other.
In conclusion, I agree with the articles on how social media can be too much for some people to handle. You just need to take a step back and think if you are doing it for yourself or your “followers”. The internet can help you in life and school, but can also hurt you. I think that everyone is learning that as the social media craze increases.
