Social media has a negative impact on our society today due to bullying, job stability, and in person conversations. Bullying affects people because they could attempt to commit suicide. When people have a job they could get in trouble if they start bashing on coworkers. In person conversations aren’t the best because people can give off false information about themselves.
In summary, social media will have a negative effect despite the positive it may bring. The occasional use of social media use can lead to loss of thought, procrastination, and narcissism. Social media could probably never be completely cut out of the world. Thus, people need to manage their time better so they may have time to go onto social media after the important tasks.

NeTorrian Patton Professor Moore English 102 20 January 2017 Analysis One “Mind over Mass Media,” written by Steven Pinker was definitely written for an audience that was already inclined to agree with him. The article discusses how some people view technology as bad, while others view it as actually helping and being essential to growth. Then Pinker also states that there are many limitations set on technology in both parties. “Accomplished people don’t bulk up their brains with intellectual calisthenics; they immerse themselves in their fields. Novelists read lots of novels, scientists read lots of science(Pinker 1031).”
When you think about social media what do you think of. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Vine. Well social media is more than that. Social media is not just Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Social media is any online website that lets you interact with other people, share photo and information and keeps you updated. Or do you think about how it’s made a positive or negative impact on today’s society. In my personal opinion I think social media has made both positive and negatives impacts on today’s society .Some of the negative impacts are cyberbullying and addiction, and the positive impacts are spreading the word and increasing business sales.

I have a Twitter and a Facebook account, and both I find myself using not as much as I used to. As a matter of fact I find myself using the internet a lot less of late; it just seems to have lost “that thing” that made it extraordinary at first. I just think the longer it’s around, or the more advanced it gets, the more it has a negative influence on society and individuals. To me, social media has created a new form of bullying, stereotyping, and racism. Along with the overuse of the internet, giving social media more authority, where it is able to expand in form. And last but not least, the way people have taken something that started out constructive, and mutated it into something that can be so negative.
