Social media is something I use every day and something I find to be very useful in connecting with friends and sharing our lives. I have had many positive experiences when using social media and, for me, it has given more good than bad. Unfortunately, this is not the case for all young people. Many youths are bullied online, some to the point of severe depression or suicide. This is the topic I have chosen for my essay, I will explore the many facets of social media and perhaps will also highlight some of the positive aspects to give a balanced opinion. The following questions will be answered:
Does the extensive use of social media have a positive or negative impact on the health of young people? What are the most recent academic papers on this topic? Clarify what all sides of the argument claim and only then offer your reasoned opinion based on facts.
I will post more as I develop my thesis and formulate my ideas.
