    Thesis: Technology and media are dramatically affecting the lives of children, families and especially teenagers, in a negative manner.

    90% of 13-17 year olds have used some form of social media and 75% have a profile on a

    social networking site.

    There is a widespread belief that media and technology hurt a childs attention span. Some 42 percent of Americans agree that in 2020, young technology users will be easily distracted, lack deep thinking skills, and thirst only for instant gratification. Teachers believe that media and technology has severely hurt students attention span.

    A Pew Internet survey of nearly 2,500 teachers finds that 87% believe new technologies are creating an easily distracted generation with short attention spans and 64% say todays digital technologies do more to distract students than to help them academically.

    For teenagers it is creating a lack

    of focus, procrastination, a wandering brain, smart

    phone addiction and multi screen


    But media is actually having

    a stronger affect on

    adolescents than young children.

    A national survey reported teenagers spend, on average, 8.08 hours a day using various forms of media, not including time spent doing school work or talking or texting on a cell

    Studies show that 63% of teenagers log on to Facebook daily, and 40% log on multiple times each day.

    Social media websites such as Facebook give rise to

    cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is an enormous concern,

    especially for adolescents. An organization that aims for

    internet safety, called Enough is Enough, conducted a survey that found 95% of teenagers who use social media have witnessed cyberbullying, and

    33% have been victims themselves.

    As well as cyberbullying social media also glamorizes drug and alcohol use. A study that explored the relationship between teenagers, social media, and drug use found that 70% of teenagers ages 12 to 17 use social media, and that those who interact with it on a daily basis are five times more likely to use tobacco, three times more likely to use alcohol, and twice as likely to use marijuana. In addition, 40% admitted they had been exposed to pictures of people under the influence via social media.

    Furthermore one quarter of teens who are on social media for more than two hours a day, report poor self-rated mental health, psychological distress,

    suicidal ideation or unmet need for mental health

    So if you take roughly 1.2 billion Facebook and other social media users and 450 million people suffering from mental

    disorders, what do you get? A global pandemic thats

    showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

    12 percent of children who spend no time on social networking websites have

    symptoms of mental ill-health, the figure rises to 27 percent for those who are glued to the sites for three hours or more a day, a report from the Office for

    National Statistics showed.

    This short anecdote describes just how crazy social media is becoming for adolescents, I made a conscious decision to avoid Snapchat and Instagram because of the social pressure I saw them putting on my 14-year-old little sister. If my mum turned off the WiFi at 11pm, my sister would beg me to turn my phone into a hotspot. She always needed to load her Snapchat stories one more time, or to reply to a message that had come in two minutes ago because she didnt want her friend to feel ignored. If I refused, saying she could respond in the morning, Id get the Youre ruining my social life speech. Even as a teenager as well, I sometimes find this craze a little baffling.
