The Impact Of Social Media

This month is Social Media month and these days, there are so many social media sites out there.There's Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, and more. When I was younger,I remember having Myspace and then Facebook became more popular. Kids these days are growing up with social media earlier and earlier. I believe I got my Facebook back in freshmen year of high school and now kids in elementary school have one, which I have my opinion on that,

I have heard of people going off social media for 24 hours and to be honest,I don't think I could make it the whole 24 hours. That sounds really bad but when you have grown up on it and is on it everyday,then it would be a hard habit to break. Could you go off social media for 24 hours? 

Facts about social media:

  • Ninety-two percent of teens report going online at least once a day, and 56 percent admit they go online “several times” a day. This means only 8 percent of teens are able to resist going online every day (Steyer, C., 2015)
  • Seventy-one percent of teens say they use more than one of the following social networks: Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Vine and Tumblr (Steyer, C., 2015)

  1. 24 hours would be a long time to stay off social media! I definitely am keeping my kids off social media as long as possible.
