Hello everyone. As the topic of discussion is influence of online social networks on our youth, let me share my personal opinions on the same.

The gizmos as well as the online social networking sites have become one of the basic necessities of the youth. All the time the youngsters are found to be engaged with their mobile phones, their eyes glued on the screen for hours. This creates a bad impact on them as all these online networks divert and distract the young and ignited minds from their prime business which is to study and focus upon their professional life.

As being the youth of the modern generation, it is natural that they are fickle as well as single minded for which they get inclined towards the modern technology beyond a permissable limit and lose their enthusiasm to shoulder the responsibility of developing their motherland by working for its progress and prosperity. Though the social networking sites connect us with our nearer and dearer ones but in practice we misuse the technology and get addicted to it.

So concluding I would like to say that excess of anything and everything is bad. So we should use the facilities provided to us by science and technology in a righteous manner to modernise further in future. Thank you.

In today's world, where everything is just one click away. Social networking sites have become the need of the present world.

Social networking sites and social media has revolutionized the world, bringing us closer than ever before and making life easier. They are very much useful not only to the youths but to all generations.

However, every coin has two sides and addiction to anything is always bad. Being on social networking site means one should be social but we are social more on networking sites and are keeping our self\'s away from social life.

These networking sites are changing the mindsets of the youths, people are living in the virtual world and trying to present a virtual picture of their life and updating on social sites. We are not enjoying our real life but trying to pretend our virtual world to be perfect. We are publishing our personal life for a few minutes of attention among few people in the virtual world.

Too much use of social networking sites is making individuals dumb. Thus, today's youth are engaged in cyber crimes. In the end, I would like to say social networking is a medium through which we can learn things broadcast our knowledge, experience, and views. We can either misuse this or use it for a better life. All depends upon us and the choice is ours.

Social media means connecting the people in all over the world within a seconds. Once upon a time, communication is very difficult. Because there is no communication facilities. Anything we would be share while we directly go and see the share with our information or thoughts. So nowadays it's very easy. Because any emergency period, within a second to gain help with others. So it's very necessary nowadays. Anything in the world, all are having some merits and demerits. But how we can use it. It's very important.

Thank you so much.

Nowadays the average time a person spends on social networking sites is continuously increasing. Networking sites have had its own pros and cons. Let's first discuss the pros of these.

*It is very useful for the people who are very shy to speak people face to face to communicate.

*it keeps everybody aware what is happening around us.

*for very people social networking sites are the medium of earning money. The Internet has had given a lot of people employed.

*internet nowadays is biggest learning stage.

By the use of social networking sites, it became very easy to teach people ethics and etiquettes.

Let's now discuss the cons of these-.

*because of the internet youths have forgotten to play physical games. They like to spend more time on these sites rather than playing games, meeting peoples.

*virtual life nowadays is more important than real life.

*Lack of privacy.

* spreading rumors has become very easy.

Cyber crimes have been increased.

It is totally upon us to choose real life over virtual life.

I am very happy to express my view on this to topic.

Actually, social media is a very good platform with the help of this you can share information, photo, video, personal message etc. Social media is very important for all a person and I want to use people to Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Hike if you will use to this app than better for you.

In my opinion, there are 3 kinds of behavior that social media users did,

1. Sharing their personal life.
2. Seeking for updated news.
3. An observer who just see the what other people shared.
Social media has two things.
Advantage and disadvantage these two things are is up to you.
Let me first point out the good effect.

1. It can be used to create and maintain relationships.
2. It reduces distance between the communication.
3. It can be used for advertising products on a commercial level.

Hi Guy's. My name is Pankaj.

I am very happy to express my view on this topic.

Actually, Social Media is a very good platform with the help of this you can share information, photo, video, personal message etc. In America, According to a Sarvey Report, 84% of people have a Facebook account and over 60% of 13 to 17 years old have at least one social account, spending more than 2 hours in a day.

So, as my point of view if you are using any social site as a limited way so this is very good for you but you are a habit of any social site like Facebook so this is very harmful.

I thinking Social network come into existence for the purpose of imparting knowledge, for innovative idea, for creating awareness by providing information etc. But our youth is misusing it. They spent lot of time in chatting, uploading pics, Sharing meme etc. Because of which for eg if you take facebook there are more pics uploaded and memes in almost everyones news feed. Which shows that our youth spending lot of time in this. Though FB provides very valuable pages which gives us knowledge. At last I want to say that if we are utilizing it for our growth and for learning it is the best place in today's life to be on your toe with others.

Hi friends!

I'm also the one of the best users of social networks.

Nowadays, the youth are much busy in their works in this competitive world. So they don't have time to read the newspaper and get information through Television and FM.

So they use social networks like whatsapp, hike, youtube, twitter and so many apps to know what is happening around us.

And also we don't have time to speak with people daily who are very close to us. In that situation, they use to contact through the social network.

Every thing is fine with the social network but not 100% because the youth doesn't know what is right or what is wrong. Some may lead to a problem. So the CONCLUSION is that influence of social media is good but at the same time, the youth should much smarter to right views of others to influence you.

It totally depends on how you use it. Nowadays, people are just addicted to these sites and they leave all their work to check their notifications again and again. After waking up in the morning and before sleeping also people check these sites. These sites are just a medium to stay connected. But people don't understand that and are wasting their time. Instead, people should take up some hobby or keep themselves busy. Even I was a part of it so I know its addiction like a cigarette and how difficult it is to get over it. I have now taken up a hobby to improve my English and write blogs and become a writer in near future. I have started with reading and offering my views on such sites. Indiabix is a good platform.

So there is no harm to use social media till you have the capability to understand who are good and who will be problematic to you.

Hello. Guys as I think the topic given to us "Social Websites beneficial or not" is very interesting as. All of us are using social media. But as we just look forward we found that it has both pro and cons just like a coins has head or tail.

On one hand, it has made us connected with the diff people to learn share our views, helped us in increasing our productivity and creativity. On the other hand, it has also transformed our life style.

Some of issues.

1. Teenagers using social media don't know what is correct and what is wrong.

2. Youth waste most of his time on social media.

3. Your real-time location can be traced out. (which is used in crime in some cases in past).

4. All your personal chatting and personal information are saved and which may be sold out.

5. There is no such a genuine proof of a person. Many of crimes i.e. cheating, even smuggling of child, kidnap.

6. People gets addicted to social media. Which cause lacks in you are concentration.

Please suggest me if any improvement is there.

Social media has positive as well as negative effects. But negative effects are more than that of positive effects.

- Social media leads to addiction. Spending countless hours on social sites can divert the focus & attention from a particular task. It lowers the motivational level of the people especially teens & students.

- Kids can be greatly affected by these social networking sites if they are allowed to use them. The reason is that people share photos on social media contains violence which can damage the behaviour of kids & teenagers & teenagers involve themselves in crime related activities.

Social media has equal number of pros and cons. However I think that the effect of the cons are more dominating the pros. Let me first point out the good effects:

1. It can be used to create and maintain relationships.

2. It reduces distance between the communication.

3. It can be used for advertising products on a commercial level.

4. It can be used to organise events.

5. Finally, It is becoming one of the fastest way to propagate news among youngsters since 70% to 80% of the netizens are youths.

Now, lets take a look at the darker side:

1. Although social media can be used to build up relationships, the internet is an infinite ocean where anyone with good experience can leak out personal and private information. Your security is always at risk.

2. Even though social media was introduced to make communication more convenient, people today have reached a point where they've literally stopped communication the conventional way. Also, there has been tremendous rise in the usage of internet slang and people are slowly losing their knowledge on the English language.

3. We see a lot of products advertised on the internet. However, statistics suggest that for most of these companies that advertise, the income they get through online trajectory is way too less compared to other means. So online advertisements are not much of an effect.

4. The social media has almost replaced TVs as the primary source of entertainment. And major share goes to the memes created and posted in the social media. These memes depict in a way the current scenarios or may be something related to daily happenings and they depict them in a sarcastic way. When such things are conveyed in a sarcastic I tone, it surely affects our level of understanding of the issue.

5. This is the most negative impact of social medias on youth. We all are addicted. And it is increasingly becoming serious. We stay online most of the times literally doing nothing. It greatly affects our productivity.

Social networks sites are a very good platform to share idea and views. A social network means the connection of social people, in the social media people can connect their relatives, friends and with unknown people whom they never met face to face. A news spread with more than light of speed. Every organization, celebrities are directly connected to their follower and fans. And they can talk and share any updates. Social networks are only platforming to discuss any topics, any issue. Its influence on all age groups either youth or others.

Social media is just a waste of time and mental ability. No one can find it useful from starting to end. In my case, I get badly addicted of FB. In a day I probably open my FB account near about 40 times and my book near about 1 or 2. See the difference.

Social media also cause a great impact on our confidence. Generally, if any time I have ten or more messages on FB then I feel that people are becoming attracted towards me and I feel so confident whether when there is no message then I feel that I am loosing my charm and get feels so bad for me.

But this is only virtual world boy real.

In the real world, I have so many best friends who care for me a lot but due to FB and WhatsApp, I didn't get time for my real friends I realize it later. Friends I have five breakups on FB. Hahaha. By the girls which I never have seen them. How funny all that and after few days all forget. Fb relationships are not real they are only a waste of mind as well as time. Get rid of this as soon as possible.

Today I deleted my FB app from my phone and going out by this virtual world to real world.

Thank you, friends.

Hi, friends.

According to me, everything has advantages and disadvantages before going to any opinion we can see both of views.

Social networks are the new way of communication like face book, twitter etc. Place vital role in our day to day life.


1) We can easily communicate with each other and sharing new ideas, day to day activities and issues.

2) If we lose our friends contact then through SNS we can easily contact.

3) Students are contacted with employees through social networks for job opportunity information.


1) The main disadvantage is privacy affected to sharing personal information. Some people are using other people's personal information for malicious intentions.

2) SNS complete waste of time youth is wasting their precious time.


SNS are boon. It depends on how we using them.

On the other hand, it has also some issues that are the issues of privacy, security as we see that some nonserious Peoples uses images of others and make fake Accounts and start publishes some Vulgar things that send the wrong message to society in the form of violence, against the dignity of peoples of the country etc.

Favor (Boon)

Social networks are the new way of communication for example Facebook, Myspace, Orkut and much more.

Everyone is sharing pictures, day to day activity, thoughts about issues, personal problems etc. on the social network. As well as people are communicating with each other through social networking sites. Few people are exploiting social networking sites by spying on others life. Few cases have been reported where robbers and thieves were spying on victims through social networking sites. So one should take care of what he/she is sharing on social network. Its own responsibility that to not share anything personal which can create problems.

Public sharing of private lives has not led to a rethinking of anything. It's just reminded people to use extreme caution when publicly sharing their private lives. If you wouldn't do something in front of everyone you know, don't do it on the internet.

The Internet is popular due to freedom of speech. Few groups are asking that social networking sites should be banned. If the government would ban social networking sites then the internet will not be free. People will not share their lives or communicate with others and the internet will loose its charm.

Humans are social animals by nature and social networks are just one other outlet for humans to interact. We should not look at social networks as threats but as opportunities for us to interact with people globally. I myself am an active user of social networks and have made many friends and business contacts online that I would otherwise not have had the same level of opportunity or interaction.
Against (Bane)

Social networking sites are a complete waste of time. Youth is wasting their precious time on these social networking sites so these sites should be banned.
A guy who posted a video on YouTube weightlifting, skiing, and performing karate exhibitions. He was fired from his job for showing too much Bravado.
There was one incident where robbers using user's geolocation on Facebook to find out when the target is at home or not.
Unlike other human social interactions which are transient, e.g. talking to friends over lunch etc, the Internet keeps a permanent record of what we say to each other. If you are having an online conversation with your friend(s) then you should be aware that conversation can be seen by countless others and that a record of that conversation will be kept somewhere on the Internet. Indeed, now with some social networks introducing geo-location services a record of where we go and how long we spend there will also be maintained.
Social-networking sites allow seemingly trivial gossip to be distributed to a worldwide audience, sometimes making people the butt of rumors shared by millions of users across the Internet.
Public sharing of private lives has led to a rethinking of our current conceptions of privacy.
Existing law should be extended to allow some privacy protection for things that people say and do in what would have previously been considered the public domain.
People need to be aware of the environment within which they are communicating to others. If you are discussing things in a public forum then all that information is available to everyone else in that forum. Therefore they should take a common sense approach to what they should and should not discuss. In the real world, we only talk about sensitive issues when we are in private and with people we trust. I think though that when people are online they can fall into a false sense of security because there are physically in a secure place using their computer either in their office or their home which results in them divulging information they should not.

The social network is indeed a boon for the human race as it is bringing people closer and letting them communicate with each other without any fear and barrier. But still, one need to be cautious of what level of personal information they are revealing on social networks.

I believe social media is good and bad.

The reasons for social media is that I believe that it is a great way to communicate and to share what you are up to, however, there are a few bad points to weigh this out. The main bad issue I think there is an addiction. Nowadays all are constantly spending time on their phones, but they don't know any different, that is just simply how they were brought up. There are issues with safety, people should always have their accounts on private and should never share personal details, but the only way, they will understand this, if they are educated how to stay safe online and what would happen if they didn't.

But you can't say social media is all that bad because everything has dangers.

To my point of view, the use of social media is like a time eater animal. That eats our time and also our feelings. Nowadays people share their ideas and their justifications only through posting in facebooks or status in WhatsApp's. If they just share those ideas with the public or government they can be benefited at least. Now, even a child of KG asks for its own smartphone for playing the game in online instead getting a toy car. Moreover, the girls are more exploited in these social medias like blackmailing with morphed photos etc. They are been treated as like an opposite gender to chat or for being dated something else like that.

Without the social network, how we will know things what are happening around.?

With social networking, we will know what is happening all over the world. Social networking is like information at your fingertips. It keeps us connected with world and people who are far us. Different people use the social network in the different way a student can get knowledge, they can share their views, they get information from all over the world. Some organizations use to promote their goods. It also creates awareness among people. Everything in the world has positives and negatives even have. We have take positives and should neglect negatives and should keep going on.

Tanvi said: (Jul 24, 2016)  
Hello, folks.

This is Tanvi here.

Like everyone has said about the merits and demerits of use of social networking, I would also like to put some light on these issues.

Excessive use of social sites being like any other addiction is taking our impulse control. It has become a part of our DNA. The most important impact of it which I found nearby is Teenagers are losing their ability to communicate if not through smartphones. Recent research says that we teenagers are unprepared for the world of work where we will have to actually interact with the people outside our peer group and speak face to face with total strangers. This later results in depression, low self-esteem etc.

Another important affect of social media are it creates disturbances in life when priorities get misplaced and this affects relationships. People start comparing their relationships and partner with the social figures which leads to a drop in romance and development of problems in relationships.

Moreover, one gets influenced by the unrealistic life displayed on social media and thus pressurizes the partner to lead the life as displayed. Even social media makes people more agitated and that too after break-ups; one starts repeatedly checking and rechecking smartphone and reassures if their ex-has moved on if they are happy with the new partner if they are feeling lonely and many other reasons.

People find their online friends the real ones to share their matters rather than with their family.

And this is really very common in youth when their parents ask for some time to talk then they show negligence and avoid it citing the lack of time but on the other hand, they are using these sites on a regular basis. Journals says a billion people uses facebook on a daily basis. And one more reason which comes in the limelight these days is wade in these sites for support is also because of increasing depression in people due to one or more reasons but its excessive use might serve to boost their depression. Because one can't find the real happiness on these outlets where everyone presents a false picture of their lives with flattering selfies, images of holidays, parties etc.

One more point which I would like to add is the excessive use of social media leads to stress, low self-esteem because the lack of shares, likes also makes people feel neglected which affects their brain and health as well.

Bottom line- One needs to learn how to control one's self over the use of social media and introspect one's needs and desires. Also, social media be used in regulated time slots and one should spend quality time with family instead of mindlessly browsing or rather log out when one is upset. Use social media but do not let it take over your life.

I mean to say Bollywood directors are also taking help of the social media for better collections for entire the world. Demerits-. 1-social media is popular due to freedom of speech. But some secular peoples shared the unwanted links. Which is in nationalism, diversity, assert, and incompatible. 2-There are few incidents where robbers using user's geo-location on facebook to find out when the target is at home or not.

Hi, everyone.

According to my point of view, the main objective of social networks was to get connected to the world and people who are far away from you.

But people are so busy in connecting to people who are not near them and are forgetting people around them.

Yes, useful information can be shared through social networking sites but till what extent are people really sharing.

Youth today is mainly crazy for Facebook Twitter Instagram and many.

Everything which has been created in this world will have its own pros and cons.

It depends on the people how they utilize.

Social networking sides have both negative and positive effect on today's youth.

It helped the youth in socialising at the same time created a fear of stalking and hacking.

It helped the youth to know the facts and figures but at the same time created a doubt whether is it true or not.

It also helped the youth who wanted to share their views about something at the same time ruined some lives.

Nowadays the trend finding your love is also by social networking but also created a fear of fraud and cheating or any criminal offence.

Social Media Plays an Important role in one's youth's life, Social media is one where group or Individuals communicate over an internet. Best example of Social Media is Facebook, It's a vast network where we are connected to our friends, relatives, colleges etc. It helps us to be in touch with our loved ones.

By social media people we get connected to world, we will be having information within a second. It's helping lots of youths to search jobs, share information among others. We even can make a groups and page of like minded people and share the ones thought's etc.

We even can get connected to Mr Narendra Modi, our respected Prime Minister and we can directly share our problems with him. There are so many Politicians, Film Actors whom we can get easily connect through Social Media.

Like Positive points, Social Media has Negative points too. One will waste lots of time spending on Facebook. By recent research it came to know that 10 out of 7 use facebook, it's just a waste of time spending lots of time on Facebook.

Conclusion: It's left to us how we take use of Social Media, it's having both negative and positive points.
