Social Media's Impact On Us, Simplified

Updated: Jan 11, 2021

In today’s society, social media influences beauty standards, the way people think, how we speak, and much, much more. Whether you see this as positive or negative doesn’t really matter, because it’s still true.

Remember that song you heard on your friend’s Instagram story that was stuck in your head for the past week or the Facebook post you keep thinking about or that dance you saw on Tik Tok and for some reason want to learn even though you hate dancing? All of these things are proof that social media influences your everyday life.

Social Media can be really awesome, it’s a great way to meet new people with similar interests or grow a business, it could even help you pursue a passion like photography, videography, modeling or even graphic design, so many people have been able to turn their passion into a full-time job because of social media.

Even with all the positive values of social media, there are still a few negatives that I have to bring up. Gen-Z currently has the highest rate of depression, anxiety, and suicide, many do believe that social media is to blame. Many people on social media have experienced some sort of cyberbullying at some point in time.

Social media is very important, now more than ever, since many of us are still home due to COVID-19, all I can ask is that when you use Social media, think about how you would feel if somebody said that to you, and know when to take a break
