Iphone XR Review by Allison B
I own a the IPhone XR. I use my phone to call and text mostly. I have apps like music, Snapchat, Pinterest, VSCO, etc. My phone had made my life worse because of social media and the effects it has young people being they can do just about anything with it. Although sometimes social media is misused it does do some good. It’s a great way to connect with people, advertise clothing, And it also allows people to be more creative in different aspects. For example there is a small business in Lake Charles, Louisiana they sell shirts with the acronym “U.G.L.Y.”, which means you got to love yourself. When they first started to sell shirts they only had maybe three hundred followers but now they have over twenty two thousand followers. They’ve made such a huge impact on our community in such a positive way. And just recently they have expanded new things like beanies, jackets, fanny packs, slippers, and even bracelets.
Although there are positive ways of using social media there are negative ways as well.
People often times cyberbully, stalk others, and even communicate in directly on purpose because of social media. For example there was a boy Who went to Sam Houston high school. He attempted suicide because of cyber bullying. People made fun of him for being as smart as he was. What they didn’t realize is how it really affected him until he was presumed dead. He killed him self his freshman year of high school. Just because of getting picked on at school and on social media. The younger generation isn’t Taught how to properly use social media. They are taught through social media that peoples feelings no longer matters.
Without social media I believe society with thrive more. Being that you would then learn how to communicate face-to-face rather than over the Internet. We see people being bullied on the Internet everyday But we don’t say anything about it.
.social media affects young people in a more negative way then in a positive way is because it causes people to communicate less and less. People would rather send a text and than talk to someone face-to-face. When someone is given the opportunity to talk to someone face-to-face they sometimes may get nervous while speaking, stutter, or even look around. The reason being because they don’t usually interact with others unless It’s over some kind of messenger or social media.
You would then be forced to communicate and interact with others more than you probably already do. People who aren’t socially interacting with people face-to-face often tend to develop social anxiety over time. For example they may stutter, speak softly or quietly, and even look around.
