Transcript of Social Media Tears Us Apart


Social Media
Addictive behaviors and spending hours on the internet is making you a more socially awkward person with not many social skills due to starring at a screen and having relationships through social media. That;s where the problem tends to come in. It’s dragging us out of our social lives, putting us in a box, locking it, sitting in that box with very little space for hours, then coming out. You may get the feeling of feeling claustrophobic which relates to being addicted to social media. Once you come out of the box you feel awkward and very lonely. Everything may seem different. Your brain is being seduced to keep wanting to go on social media so you don’t feel left out because all your peers are constantly active on social media.
Online communication is not the same as the physical relationship, it’s missing many
aspects and to communicate with another, the physical appearance makes it much easier on many levels.
Many people tend to always talk about what may be occurring on Facebook and Twitter rather than focus on more important things then their internet personas which makes people not know how to seperate their online lives with the internet causing them both to clash. and are like an invasion of

privacy because they ask you about your personal status.
Using technology as a substitute for developing close relationships with friends and using it as a shield to produce a more ‘constructed’ identity online can become an isolating experience. Children at very young ages are creating online profiles whereas 10 years ago, children would've behaved as children playing outside and enjoying themselves. Starring at a screen for many hours is in fact damaging the eye sight in the long term.
Social media is making us the new generation of robots
Social media destroys and takes away the purpose of how communication really is because when you communicate with a person it should be one to one contact where you can read body language and hear the persons tone of voice whereas communicating through technology destroys the purpose completely and causes barriers.

A survey conducted in Australia showed the following results: “Forty two per cent of Australians who used an average of four methods of technology to communicate [such as email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter] were lonely compared with 11 per cent of people who used only one,” says Sue Miller, a Manager of Relationships Australia Queensland.

Argument # 1
The Teen Advisory Board for My Future-My Choice conducts surveys yearly to gain more insight into the communities in which they live. TAB members asked fellow high school students their insight on healthy relationships. The survey showed the following results with the 11 questions asked by different students living in different areas about social media:
Statistics show between 50-90% of computer users experience some kind of eye problem. Working adults are not the only ones who are prone to this problem. Kids who play video games on computers, especially games that require high concentration, are liked to experience eye-related problems.
Do you want to look like this at such a young age?
82% chose texting as one of the top two ways relationships end.
27% said Facebook is one of the top two ways people their age begin romantic relationships; 19% reported that Facebook is one of the top two ways people their age end relationships.
The most common way relationships begin and end is texting: 77% of the teen respondents chose texting as one of the top two ways relationships begin;
75% said that social media affects romantic relationships “negatively,” 18% positively, and 7% said that social media had no effect
Video Chatting Isn't a Solution-It's an Illusion
Cell phone cameras, and web cam cameras are always wide angle lenses. They may capture the image but the downside is that they add a bubble like distortion to the image. However, telephoto lenses show images without distortion but are way too "zoomed in" and compress near and far objects giving a shallow dept of field (the subject would be crisp whereas the background would be blurred out). That being said, the subject would have to be focused just right or else the subject will turn blurry. You may ask why don't laptop web cams and iphone cams use telephoto lenses and the reason for that is that it's just way to expensive to use telephots lenses. Therefore you are not seeing people the way they really look in real life which makes this absalutely useless. Haven't you always wondered why you look horrible on web cams when speaking to friends and family well it's because of the lens.
Argument # 2
Social media has become a real problem for many couples. More than 60% of all internet user also communicate via social networks and over 85% of all teens have accounts on social networks. Psychologist have noticed that break ups have increased do to the lack of face to face communications ,people often use social media because they may be afraid to get know each other face to face. They may not realize this though day by day they are breaking their relationship. There is body language instead its replaced with 'like ' and 'dislike' and emoticons.
Argument #3
Skype and facetime are a form of viewing the face but you aren’t present in front of each other where you can feel how they feel emotionally. Many people don’t act normal on camera. It’s like being filmed and film makes people change who they really are. People feel shy and disclose many personal traits. Usually they act in front of a camera therefore although they may see each others faces, you haven’t experienced their day to day lives to really know who the other individual is. Facial contact and spending time with them is how you can truly understand how the other thinks and feels and whether or not they’re really comfortable.
Everyone act different on camera they try to look better then they are they try to sound better than they are
it just Hides your real personality and your emotions on camera then it does face to face .. Video social media makes people feel more insecure because anyone who is put on camera get nervous a little bit but as far a communicating goes it doesn't bring us closer it makes it seem like it does but It doesn't it hides your real emotions.
