What is social media
This is one of the many disturbing pictures about cyber bulling showing just hoe hurtfull some mean comments online can do
Not everyone in the 21st century thinks about the negative effects of having social networking accounts - but simple things like not setting your privacy settings properly or liking someone's photo can have bad results.
Cyberbullying can be a problem as people can take advantage of the fact that there is no one who can effectively stop the bullying when it happens, due to everything being performed behind a screen. The only way for a bully to be stopped is if they are reported and victims may be too intimidated to do it.
Social networking can also ruin relationships as people may get jealous if they find out their boyfriend or girlfriend is exchanging messages with other people.
It can also be a waste of time as people can visit a site to check on thing and end up spending the whole day 'behind the screen' and as a result, not doing anything useful with their lives.

The Positive and Negative Impact of Social Media on Teenagers
By Hanah Bassanino 9a2
The results from my questionaire show that most people in their teens have been using it for a long time and enjoy it but also many have known or been bullied on it too.
Results and graphs
When we think social media we either think of socialising with our friends and family or we think of the many stories over the news of tradgedies and bullying stories and we often forget all the advantages it gives us for example...
connecting with people with similar intrests
starting a relationship or friendship with new people, and with that note there is a chart below showing how teens really do encourage this.
"websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking."
In February 2016, eBizMBA ranked the top ten most popular social media sites, by estimated unique monthly visitors, as
Growing in popularity
Decreasing in popularity
1.Facebook: 1,100,000,000 users. Facebook is a networking site used to connect with friends, family or promoting businesses.
2.Twitter: 310,000,000 users. Twitter is mostly a blogging networking site.
3.LinkedIn: 255,000,000 users. LinkedIn is a networking site mostly used by professional with focuses in business.
4.Pinterest: 250,000,000 users. Pinterest is a site where networkers post new ideas, "do-it-yourselves", and theme-based posts.
5.Google Plus+: 120,000,000 users. Google Plus is a social networking site owned by Google, that is similar to Twitter and Facebook.
6.Tumblr: 110,000,000 users. Tumblr, like Twitter, is a blogging network.
7.Instagram: 100,000,000 users. Instagram is a photo/video sharing app.
8.Vkontakte (VK): 80,000,000 users. VK is a European social networking site (most common in Russia) that is most similar to Facebook.
9.Flickr: 65,000,000 users. Flickr is an image and video hosting app.
10.Vine: 42,000,000 users. Vine is primarily a video sharing app.
Which are the fast growing networks? Well, through 2014 Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and LinkedIn had the biggest growth, so we can expect this has continued into 2015. So, if you're not actively using these networks for marketing, this could be a missed opportunity. This chart doesn't show Reddit, which is another network that is growing rapidly.
Social Media has grown massively, but it's growth is now starting to plateau. Interestingly the over 65s segment are now driving growth, as other age groups have plateaued completely and use is hardly growing it all. Among the 50-63 age cohort, use hasn't increased since 2013.
Here is the latest Global Web Index summary in January 2015 (the most recently published) showing social network account ownership and active usage. It's useful to have both since it's the active social media use statistic which really shows the potential of a platform. Although Facebook is no longer growing at the rate it was based on the previous chart, its clearly the number one.
The popularity of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are expected. You can see that Facebook is most popular in terms of active use - other charts in the report show it scores well in terms of frequency.
The ongoing importance of the Google social platforms YouTube and Google+ may be a surprise since Google+ is no longer actively promoted, but they are integrated into their unified account sign-in.
Social network popularity by country
This is a great visualisation of the popularity of social networks based on the interviews in the GWI report. If you pick out your country it's probably way behind the countries in which these four core social networks are most popular. Indonesia, Philippines, Mexico, India and Brazil are in the top 10 for each with significantly higher levels of use than the US, UK and European countries.
This data is based upon a representative sample of Americans 12+, is projectable to the U.S. population (methodology here), and it tells us a few things.
First of all, Twitter’s growth has clearly slowed–and so has that of Facebook. The percentage of Americans who use Twitter rose from 15% to 16% last year, while Facebook’s growth appears to have stalled for the time being, remaining at 2013’s 58% figure.1
So on the one hand, Twitter did continue to add users, but one would hardly call that hockey stick growth. On the other hand, it has “slowed” to 16% of all Americans. For a single brand. If Twitter were a laundry detergent or a pet food, we’d be having a very different conversation.
But it’s not pet food, and there are indeed some mixed signals in this graph. First of all, Twitter was the third most widely-used platform in 2013, behind Facebook (the aforementioned 58%) and LinkedIn (at 17% of Americans 12+.) This year, though they have grown, they have fallen to fifth in rank (hello, Instagram and Google+). In fact, without seeing the relative growth in other platforms, I might be inclined to be less concerned about Twitter’s modest increase in users. The space, however, is not slowing down–and there are some interesting similarities shared by the biggest gainers.
Look at the services that showed marked year-over-year growth: Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and Vine’s debut at 9%. The social networking space is showing signs of being an actual, you know, market, with a wider variety of players all developing significant user bases.
These services have a couple of things in common, and these may be one key to Twitter’s fortunes.
First of all, all of these newer, growing services are about sharing images (and let’s even throw Google+ in there, with its growing community of photographers and powerful image tools.) Clearly, as you’ve read here for some time on Convince and Convert, Visual Marketing is a thing.
Remember that received wisdom that 80% of us were consumers, 19% curators, and 1% creators? Intagram, Snapchat, and Vine have thrown those ratios out the window, as long as we are comfortable with an evolution in what “creating content” means.
We are not all going to be bloggers. And there is likely a finite cap on the percentage of Americans who want to broadcast their thoughts to people they don’t know (i.e., Tweet.) But sharing images is a basic human behavior, passed down from when your family pulled out the slide projector, or VCR, or Flip recorder (depending on your particular vintage.)
This story was published on Friday 11 September 2015 by the telegraph, it was about how social media negitevly affects children following is an extract.
Teenagers who engage with social media during the night could be damaging their sleep and increasing their risk of depression and anxiety, research shows.
More than 460 teenagers at a secondary school in Scotland were questioned about their general social media habits, and in particular their night-time use of sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as part of the study by Glasgow University.
It found that while overall use of social media affects the quality of sleep, those who log on at night to respond to alerts are particularly affected. It remains unclear, however, whether it is social media that is damaging sleep, or whether teenagers turn to social media because they can’t sleep for some other reason.
This article is clearly showing the negetives of social media as a bad thing for teens to like because of negative effects and it goes on to say how there have been many incidents on social media to do with bullying abuse and other unkind stories which have made the front page of many newspapers. I found in my survey that five out of the ten people i interviewed had either been personally bullied on a form of social media or had a friend or relative that had, this clearly shows what a big issue this is as it shows even the people i know are being seriously effected by this.
This chart shows how social media isnt all about bulling and it can have some positive effects. It shows how social media has helped millions of americans get their jobs. You can see that the majority of people got their jobs through Facebook out of these three most popular social media apps while Twitter got the least however the numbers are incredibly close and show that social media really does help you meet all kinds of people which will all help you in different ways.This shows how many employers will benefit from being on social media by finding new employees and they can find good jibs.
This graph shows that teenagers really do enjoy using social media for many reasons and the majority do think that it helps them socialise more with people they already know and those they have never met before but share common intrests, this backs up my point and when i did my survey i got similar results back as out of the eight people that had social media seven of the people said something to do with communicating with friends.
From students to journalists, One Direction to the Prime Minister - lots of people use social media sites for both work and pleasure.You can express yourself, showing off your favourite song lyrics or posting pictures of your new outfit. It is a lot harder to feel embarrassment over the internet than in person, so people find it easier to vent their feelings on sites like Facebook.
In fact, it has become so much a part of people's lives that you can learn someone's life story just by checking their page. Their friends, likes and dislikes, relationship status, phone number, address…everything.
You can share your feelings and your mental stresses - and it is a great way to entertain yourself after a busy daily routine.
It also makes it a lot easier to keep in touch with family and friends, especially if they live far away. But you can also make new friends by connecting with friends of friends that you might not know.
New research suggests that heavy social media use might be correlated to lower self-control, which marketing experts believe could lead to higher spending.
According to Women's Health, mouthwatering food photos can activate the brain's reward center and compel viewers to overeat; one study suggests that even looking at food images after a meal can trigger hunger.
One study from HP Labs found that people were more open to peer pressure within social networks. Subjects were more likely to change their minds about "liking" certain things (one cute baby over another, for instance) if enough time had passed and they could see that the other side was even moderately popular.
When two German universities joined forces to investigate social networking, researchers discovered that one in three people surveyed felt worse ("lonely, frustrated or angry") after spending time on Facebook, often due to perceived inadequacies when comparing themselves to friends.
Social networks are now so well established, that there are now a core 'top 5' social networks which are most popular which doesn't change from year-to-year. But, as we'll see in this post, the most popular social media sites vary a lot by level of usage in different countries and with demographics. So understanding these differences in popularity of different social networks is really important when targeting specific audiences. When comparing the most popular social networks it's best to review them by active account usage, not just the number of user accounts. We'll also see in this summary that some social networks are growing more rapidly than others while some are now in decline.
