Social Media - SM101
Social Media - SM101
Can you live without "Social Media"?
The impact of Social Media on the mental health of seniors, adults, teens, and children varies greatly. The amount of time spent on social media and the individual dependency on social media connects each person to something that their brain wants.
Is the use of Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Netflix, or Twitter addictive? Who benefits from Social Media? Who are Social Media Criminals? When to use Social Media at school, work, and home.
Because of the Internet, the world feels different:
It is now a fact that people are now unable to control how much time they spend online. What once was done on paper, is now done completely online without human interaction.
Non-Addictive Behavior: Thus it is now a fact that being constantly online is not addictive behavior. Being always online can be directly related to paper documents, books, magazines, tabloids, radio, and television has become obsolete information sources and antiquated tools of yesterday. To get something done, you have to be online.
