Social media has become an addiction. It has changed society dramatically, for the good and bad. It is controlling our lives, and we need to make a change. We need to stop relying on social media so heavily. There are experiments done that shows social media links to depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. It permits slander of the media, in personal lives and society, and allows inappropriate photos to be shared, as well as degrading thoughts and images online. It is not monitored closely and it has become a dangerous place for a teenager. Social media is a good source for mature adults to use for lots of different things but once it is placed in the wrong hands, it can destroy lives.
"Social media websites are no longer performing an envisaged function of creating a positive communication link among friends, family and professionals. It is a veritable battleground, where insults fly from the human quiver, damaging lives, destroying self-esteem and a person's sense of self-worth."
