The Top Ten
Because of the followers on their platforms, it tends to make people more needy for attention. Sometimes, it makes people take big risks, possibly threatening their own lives. - kaitlynrad11
People do anything for popularity and fame on the internet these days
Yeah, it does a lot. - Arcxia
80's kid- Hey mom, I am going to play ball with some friends for 2 hours, bye. (2hrs later) Hey mom want me to help me with your laundry? Mom of 80's kid- sure honey thank you!
2000's kid-! There is no wifi I am going to DIE! Mom of 2000's kid- Sorry honey there is no power which means no internet. 2000's kid- Oh shut the hell up mom and go stick your a** in a hole won't ya!
Just another reason to hate this generation.
Sometimes, posting can give people anxiety by worrying about what others may think of what they're posting - kaitlynrad11
I have shown my face on social media before but I don't smile because I have the most ugliest smile... - KianaLexi
Agreed. I can't use social media because I'm afraid of being judged.
Social media is just another way to procrastinate. Stalking someone's Instagram for hours on end or trying to get your favorite YouTuber to notice you on Twitter, it leads to people failing to do what needs to be done, from cleaning their room, to even doing big projects all the night before - kaitlynrad11
Yeah, true it does. - Arcxia
When your older, what will you have to show for it?
It is an endless loop of garbage
Probably said by old people anyone who thinks this and replies, I have something to say to you.
IF YOU THINK IT IS GARBAGE WHY ARE YOU USING IT!
Spelled in all caps on purpose.
Some people will just keep commenting stuff on your photos or statuses, and it can very much make some people lose it - kaitlynrad11
Some of us that have social media know that it can be pretty addicting, and sometimes may make you lose friends - kaitlynrad11
Too much addiction is not good for you. - malamJONES
Yes, it is possible for users of certain social platforms to get some sort of mental problems, such as depression - kaitlynrad11
I guess this one should be #1 because I hardly use social media. Well, the only two social media I use are TheTopTens and Youtube, but I don't upload any videos. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. I rarely ever use. I actually like using this site because it's more private. - Mcgillacuddy
Some people prefer not to use social media because they simply just don't want to share stuff from their personal life on the Internet - kaitlynrad11
Yeah it does, I say stay invisible. - Arcxia
In the real world, you need to know how to interact with people face to face. You do so in businesses and meetings, etc, so if you are only used to tapping your screen it will be hard for you to return to the real world and speak using your own voice.
Some people think that texting or calling will replace face to face interaction. Some of those who don't utilize social media prefer not to just be texting or calling all the time online - kaitlynrad11
It's just not the same. Talking face to face is much much better. You can see, feel and even smell people (which sometimes is actually a worse alternative)
I see this all the time, stop comparing everyone to everyone else, eh!
When Sex became easier to get,
Love got harder to find
My point in being online is to interact with intelligent, rational people and social media is all about the short-attention span crowd who think memes constitute intellectual debate. I don't want to follow people, I want to follow ideas and that's just not what social media is built to do.
Some people just don't like the idea of it - kaitlynrad11
Now it's hard to explain in a simple way but I think the best way is that a lot of people think one side is the right side and one side is the wrong side when it's so much more complicated than that
I agree 100%
You'll start thinking the life of others is better than yours. Pushing yourself to what you feel is perfection
It's causes suicides
Lol just shut your computer off. Cyberbullying is an excuse to be a whiny emo. - JakePlaid
of course. - ArchonGamer
Constantly have to follow my partner to make sure he isn’t starting something new with someone else.
Makes everyone show a fake face to the rest of the world. Wearing fake smiles and counting up likes from others like social currency.
