Events leading up to our revolution:
Social Media connected teenagers

Why is this a bad thing anyways?
There is so much more.
It's an addiction
Teens want that sense of false approbation

Teens need real attention
That means actual socializing
Teens are full of themselves
They put down "lesser" people
The addiction makes them need more affirmation

That, however, is only a tip of the iceberg.
Just look closer and ...
Find activities that keep you or others away from online media
Learn to appreciate people for who they are, not for their photos.
Encourage yourself/others when they don't take pictures of themselves.
Include them in social gatherings (e.g. parties, reunions, etc.)
Teens are self-conscious and think too much about how they look!
Selfies are all about image
Have you ever been self-conscious?
How did you feel?
Image becomes #1 priority
