Social Media -The Negative Effect of Social Media




Social Media allows us to connect with anyone, whether they are a friend, co-worker or someone on the other side of the world. Being a part of this can I guess make you feel connected.You can see what everyone is up to and also whats happening on the other side of the world. But, there is also a downside to this.

Social media may make it hard for some people to understand what kind of relationships they have with others. This is similar to the flash phones we have these days. I still believe it’s better to talk to someone than to go back and forth with text messages. In my opinion, TEXT MESSAGING IS NOT FOR CONVERSATION !!

Have you ever watched T.V shows such as “Catfish” . This is when people completely make up a new character or pretend they are someone else.There are instants where someone ends up dying. It’s a sick world we live in.

I recently watched “60 Minutes” where a man said Social Media is now messing up alot of information. The U.S Presidential elections were an example of this. One can make a post with completely incorrect information and tag people along with it.

Kids are especially vulnerable with cyber-bullying been a big issue. This can lead to mental illness. Lately the media have been talking how children’s mental health doesn’t get enough attention. This is probably correct, but like alot of things with children, I feel it comes back to parents. It’s up to us to look after our children. People seem to blame the government for any problems people have. Our kids are our responsibility.

Businesses now need to be involved in Social Media. All businesses should have the likes of a Facebook page. As long as those at work aren’t spending some time looking at their personal accounts, whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. I wonder what will be the next thing out ?

I feel many people put far too much on Facebook. One example of this is how some post saying it’s one of their children’s birthday, or whatever has ever gone wrong at home.For example, a messed up baking session. We don’t need to know all this , do we…



Ones personal life should remain personal. A photo of a night on the town might seem harmless, but how is an employer or possible client going to feel about this. How would you feel if you saw images of your child’s teacher drinking / partying. Most likely not impressed.

My Facebook profile is pretty much business these days. I don’t post anything with regards to my wife and children. My personal life is my life. I keep those most important to me in my life to myself.

What about you ?

All The Best,

    Social media is indeed a blessing and yet an evil in its own right. This was such an interesting post.

      Yes, exactly. It has a good and a bad side.
      Thank you.

    You have some good points. People seem to believe everything that is written on the internet. I remember growing up and learning in school to make sure your source is correct and real but nowadays some people believe anything written.

      Yes, I often say ” when I was a boy”

      Thank you 🙂

    Tbh, for me, social media has always provided some of the well worthy ways to connect with people, which I truely love. I mean interacting with new people, sharing culture, ideas, this whole trend of globalisation is so pleasing. I agree the evil points, but if you are well aware of all this, there is so much of potential in it.
    Thanks for sharing. 😉😃

      Yes, true. Social Media is part of life and has many advantages. That was just a look at the other side 🙂

    Honestly, I like social media. You make some good points, and I understand the negative effect it can have but used in a positive manner, it’s great. I have lots of friends and family that live far away. Social media is a nice way to keep up with them.

    • Bryce on June 13, 2017 at 5:25 pm

      Yes, I certainly enjoy social media. It’s essential to what I do online.
      Thank you 🙂

    Just as with all things, there are good and bad. I really have issues with cyber bullying, especially having a school aged child. I also think we can share too much online, especially personal things. We have to have common sense and moral sense and be smart about what we post.

    • Bryce on June 13, 2017 at 5:24 pm

      Sounds like we share some common ground. Yes, good and bad points. Everything in Moderation !!
      Thank you 🙂

  6. sara on June 13, 2017 at 5:32 pm

    yes, there are good and bad sides to social media. I find more good than bad. I am able to do so many things that I could not accomplish without social media.

    • Bryce on June 13, 2017 at 5:35 pm

      Yes, I completely agree with you. There is a good and bad side. I am very grateful with what I am able to do as well.
      Thank you

    Social media is indeed scary at times! I really worry / wonder about the YouTube vloggers who share family moments and details. They have celebrity amount of followers without celebrity security and protection!

    • Bryce on July 17, 2017 at 6:00 pm

      Exactly !! This is why I don’t put my kids on Facebook and the likes. Yes, the world is online, but it should only go so far.
      THANK YOU 🙂
