But what about when the words you say happens to be embarrassing or personal towards another person? Posting on social media, can greatly damage a person’s feeling of self-worth as the information could be a sensitive topic. On the other hand, others can use this form of communication, to do something that is otherwise hard to do. For example, breaking up in a relationship with another person. While this makes it easy for you to do, it also makes it hard for the other person to understand the questions they have been asked, making them feel as if they are not worth the time to be spoken to in person.
It is more painful that a wound on our knees. Social media can cause to people to have hard time with face-to-face or personal interaction. It may also lead to addiction especially to students or teenagers. They get involved extensively where they forgot their main priorities. Social media also leads to plagiarism.
People who are constantly using their phones and gadgets to access social media are losing their human instinct to interconnect with the outside world. Almeida states, “The universal concern over social standings put many unnecessary distortions on interactions and outings.” Mostly everyone in this generation uses technology since it is an everlasting advancing civilization, in technology that is; furthermore, it is making our civilization rely more on technology rather than relying on others or own well-being. Almeida says, “Again, almost nobody, myself included, is exempt from this group that uses social media.” The populace of the world uses technology and these so-called friendships people have online are not really friendships. People are communicating, but are not really gaining an acquaintance because no one knows who that person really is behind the mask. Almeida also states, “seldom exist in actuality.” Due to hyper-connectivity, the human civilization that highly revolved around communication and acquaintances, are no longer forming friendships the way previous generations have done.
These changes are likely to become even more significant and obvious in the future. One of the huge changes to the world is the communication. People are now able to interact with others in a number of ways, such as Twitter, Facebook or YouTube. Social media allows people to interact with almost every single person. In the past, due to the limitation of technology, people were limited to communicate to those who they personally already knew; nowadays people can interact with different people from all around the world.
It's changed my outlook, what about you? Social media is a waste of time and dangerous. Giving your time to it can literally kill you. Is social media really worth it?
Instead of having to go to the library they are able to just get online and find everything that is needed for them to complete the project. However there are also challenges which our society faces in the wake of this new technology. The effort to make our society run mostly on digital technology is very efficient yet it also lacks in many areas.

They are not able to interact with one another without posting their interaction, texting other people or able to have a serious conversation. If they only interact via social media how are they able to show empathy for others? The less they interact with society they are likely to become insecure, isolate themselves and a fear of not belonging. If they are not taught how to connect to their emotional side they will not know how to react to other people feelings and serious
You are supposed to be able to tell your better half a lot of different things and also be able to relate to them. There are a lot of people who have relations with people and their main type of communication is through text messages. This becomes a big problem between the two people. Lack of communication in a relationship can result in decisions that can even lead to separation. Sometimes when a relationship lacks communication one of the members began to doubt the others loyalty.
The New Media Age has brought about a wealth of technological innovations from the smartphone to online social media platforms. These creations have changed the way many people conduct their daily lives, but it has also changed the way the world faces privacy. New technologies make the spread of information astonishingly easy. As information is more readily available to a vast online audience, there is growing concern for the protection of people’s private information. Yet these technologies offer a number of limitations ranging from ownership of information to the ability to circumnavigate privacy systems that diminish privacy to a mere concept left to be desired, in turn altering the perception of the devices spawning the issue.
But let psychologist Sherry Turkle tell it “society has become a more technological place where we are always communicating, and yet have sacrificed conversation for mere connection.” A statement that is profound and if not looked at from a different angle can be taking lightly. The objective is to bring awareness to the people of the way technology has made an impact on a social stand point. Cell phones were not always around therefor you had to interact with people by talking-usually face to face. And often people would call from a home phone-that’s if it still exist today. Now people would rather text or go on social media to talk to people-through a screen.
