In my point of view, Social media network is very good. It gives a lot of knowledge about the world happens. Adults points of view it is good but when coming to the children they know about lots of unwanted things. So it's the effect the education and future. Maybe in the future parents are control of not allowing children to use social media the avoid misuse of things. They know about serious of social media.

Hello everyone, This is Ajay Kumar.

Today my topic is the influence of online social networks on our youth.

In my point of view in recent days, social media affects a lot in youth. Like a coin has two faces it also has two aspects that is pros and cons. First I want to talk about pros:-.

By using social media we get to know about information across the world.

It also helps to connect to the people across the world.

It also helps to increase the speed rate of business trade.

By this we also able to study online at home.


Nowadays cyber crimes increasing day by day.

By using social media it distracts the path of youth in many ways.

It is also a time-consuming thing that many peoples stuck in social media throughout the day.

So, at last, I want to say that it totally depends on us how we use it. So, be alert while using social media.

Thank you.

Social media connect the people whenever our people, country, world getting struggle in any problem. The great example is the lockdown period of COVID-19, natural disasters, protests, etc. Through social media we can connect any people for getting more knowledge and make contact with them. It helps us with the growth of our carrier. But if we see social media in our personal life, it changes the people physically and mentally. As per sir, Abdul kalam said, the growth of our country is in youngsters' hands, so we have to take responsibility and stand together for it. So, finally, what I'm trying to say is everything is only in our hands.

Online social networks have a negative impact on today's youth. Now, they are good at chatting on WhatsApp, but they are not good at the person sitting next to him/her.

Youth wastes a lot of time there just to peep in whats going on in others life, due to which they skip their daily meals which leads to deterioration in their health & also increases the chances anxiety, depression in them.

In my point of view, online social networking site has a great impact on our youth. Most of the young people like to spend their time on social media rather than doing actual work. It also affects our physical health. But everything has a good side. Due to this social media, we can communicate with family, friends living far away, also information can be shared among the people. In short, whether social network has a positive or negative effect on youth depends on its usage by the youth.

Kamil.. said: (Oct 30, 2018)  
Hello Guys.

My Self Kamil.

My Point Of View Of Social Media is Under Below.

The positives of social media:


Teachers are able to easily collaborate and communicate with students and one another.
Students have easy, free access to resources online to help them learn.
Grades improve and absenteeism is reduced.
59% of student users report that they use social networking to discuss educational topics and 50% use the sites to talk about school assignments.


Voter participation is increased. Facebook users said they are more likely to vote if they see that their online friends did. During the elections of 2010, users who visited Facebook more than once a day were 2. 5 times more likely to attend a political rally or meeting and 43% more likely to say they will vote.
Social media facilitates political change: Online networks give social movements a quick, cheap method of disseminating information and mobilizing people.

Awareness/Being Informed:

27. 8% of Americans get their news online. (28. 8% get it from newspapers and 18. 8% from radio).
Information spreads faster online than any other media. More than 50% learn about breaking news on social media.
Social networking provides academic research to everyone with online access, allowing people access to previously unavailable resources.
Social media sites inform and empower individuals to change themselves and their communities.

Social Benefits:

Social media allow people to communicate with friends and this increased online communication strengthens those relationships. 52% of online teens say social media have helped their friendships. 88% say being online helps them stay in touch with friends they don't see regularly.
People make new friends. 57% online teens report making new friends online.

Job Opportunities:

Great for professionals for marketing, connecting, and finding business opportunities.
Employers find employees and unemployed find work. 89% of job recruiters have hired via LinkedIn, 26% via Facebook, and 15% via Twitter.
Social media sites have created thousands of jobs and new avenues of income.

The negatives of social media:

A Detriment to Work and/or School:

Enables cheating on school assignments.

While grades did improve for light users, the grades of students who are heavy users of social media tend to suffer. One study shows that student users have an average GPA of 3. 06 while non-users have an average GPA of 3.82.

For every 93 minutes over the average 106 minutes spent on Facebook daily, college student's grades dropped. 12 points.

Another study showed that students who went online while studying scored 20% lower on tests.

Possible negative effects on college admission: 35% of admissions officers scan prospective students' social media and report discovering information that affects their admissions decision.

Social networking sites harm employees' productivity. 51% of users aged 25-34 checked social media at work.

Using social media can harm employment and prospects. Job recruiters check a prospective employee's social media accounts, and things like profanity, poor spelling or grammar, racism, sexism, poor health, references to alcohol or drugs, and sexual and religious content can all count against you.

Lack of Privacy:

People, especially the young, are often too open and public with personal information when online. Most don't read privacy policies and may be unaware that their information may be used by third parties, like advertisers, insurance companies, and the IRS. 21% of teens believe it is safe and harmless to post personal information, including photos.

Exposure to corporate and governmental intrusions. The US Justice Department intercepts thousands of pieces of information from email and social networking activity per year.
The IRS trains agents to scan social media for information that can help them resolve taxpayer cases.

Insurance companies use information gleaned from social media, as well. If you have "liked" a medical-related page or a post about a health condition, that information is sometimes used by insurance companies to determine eligibility and raise rates.

Online advertising policies are an invasion of privacy. If you "like" a brand, you\'re giving that company access to your personal information.

Users Vulnerable to Crime:

Social networking sites allow hate groups to recruit and distribute propaganda online.
Unauthorized sharing and copyright infringement threatens intellectual property and causes loss of income.

Security attacks such as hacking, identity theft, phishing scams, and viruses are common online. 68% of users share their real birth date, 63% share the name of their high school, 18% share their phone number, 12% share a pet's name: This information might be used in identity theft.

Criminals use social media to commit crimes. Robbers know when you're away from your home on vacation and stalkers get information about your whereabouts via social media.
Sexual predators find, stalk, and assault victims through social media.

Sexting (texting sexual content) can be a big problem. When teens post sexy photos or comments online, it can lead to criminal charges and child pornography. 88% of "private" sexual images posted to social media are stolen and publicly posted on porn sites without the subject's knowledge.

Security attacks such as hacking, identity theft, and viruses and exposure to phishing scams are common via social media.

Social Detriments:.

Cyber-bullying (the use of electronic communication to bully someone, usually by sending intimidating or threatening messages) is commonplace online, causes emotional trauma, and sometimes even leads to suicide. 49. 5% of students reported victimization by bullying online and 33. 7% admitted to online bullying. A 2012 study found that at least 800, 000 minors had been harassed on Facebook. Middle school children who experienced cyberbullying were almost twice as likely to try to kill themselves.

According to one report, 15% of adult users said that something that happened online caused a friendship to end. 12% of adult users said something that happened online caused a face-to-face argument, and for 3% of adults it turned into a physical confrontation.

Extensive online engagement is correlated with personality and brain disorders like poor social skills, ADHD, narcissistic tendencies, a need for instant gratification, and addictive behaviors and other emotional distress like depression, anxiety, and loneliness.

Less time for face-to-face interaction with loved ones. 47% of 18-34-year-old users reported using social media or texting during meals. 10% of people younger than 25 reported checking their phones and social media during sex.

Children at higher risk for depression, low self-esteem, and eating disorders and more prone to feeling isolated and disconnected (especially youth with disabilities).


Enables the spread of false rumors and unreliable information: 49. 1% of users have read false news on social media.

Encourages amateur medical advice and self-diagnosis of health problems, which can be dangerous and life-threatening.


Studies have shown that sites such as Facebook influence you, via advertisements, to spend more money.

A Waste of Time:

When alerted to a new post or tweet, it takes about 20 to 25 minutes for the average user to return to their original task. 30% of the time it takes two hours for the user to return to their original task.

3. Accidental posts: If any post is made unintentionally or leaked in social media, such activity could probably cause unwanted threats, harassment, or trolling.
4. The tendency to endorse fake news: Sometimes the information or news that is not real is promoted to a great extent that people tend to rely on them.

Social media is the best platform where you can share reliable information with your friends and people at large. If used appropriately, it can help you in boosting your business and personal brand along with the relations with friends. However, we must know where to put the full stop.

In my opinion, social media is that tool which helped us to get modernise and make our tasks easy like shopping, searching for an information, and getting to know about our well-wishers who live in far-off places etc. Yeah so it helps us a lot but since everything in the world which has some advantages has a few disadvantage also and the biggest disvantage is misuse of social media by the youth as the devote much of their time in these skipping their studies which ultimately hampers their future so if this issue is settled then the conception about the social media by the researchers could change and they just can find out its merits only.

There are disadvantages like children's are misusing it sometimes by watching and learning bad things and it makes student addicted of social networking and take them away from. Studies.

But I think its up to us what we choose. Everything has a positive and negative perspective but important is what we choose, the positive thing from it or the negative thing from. It. Because for a developing country like India social. Networking is very important. Its only up to us what we take for us.

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.

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.

Most of the people are busy with their work in this competitive world so they have no time to read newspapers and listen to the radio so by doing their work and also at the same time they easily get to know what is going on in this world.

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.

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.

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.

- 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 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.

Social network is very good service, if we know how to use it correctly. It helps people to share their thoughts in public and to find social groups where they fit in. If we want to share about our personal life it is up to us to decide whether it right or not, by keeping in mind the disadvantages it can lead to.

The social network is the Network of Number of Peoples or Groups means it provides them a way to exchange their thoughts, knowledge, messages so that we can conclude social networks increase Awareness among the people and stay them connect for eg facebook, twitter etc.

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.

So we need to be aware of all its pros and cons so that how we can use Social media in the right way with responsible manner.

Overall friend message is If their is rose then there is thorn also.

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.

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.
