Misspelling and abbreviating words
- Communication through Twitter
- Twitter is used by more than 500 million users as of February 2012.
- Enables users to only speak with a limit of 140 words
-Encourages users to use abbreviations/ misspelling of words
- Causes a decrease in communication skill
- 2010 research study
54% percent of teenagers text their friends once a day,
only 33% said they talk to their friends face-to-face on a daily basis.
- Youth rather text/chat than meet outside
- When youth meet physically
Wanting to share the fun rather than having fun

Decrease face to face communication
FOMO : Fear Of Missing Out
Leaked Personal Information
facebook check-in
instagram photos
Especially on facebook and instagram

Stalkers knows how you look

teens don't know who is checking their profile
Strangers checking your profile, photos, and your posts
someone knows something about you
threatens to expose on social media
photos or personal information leaks to strangers
Strangers can blackmail you with your personal data for sexual favors, money, etc
People From Anywhere Around The World Can Look At Your Photos, Activities, and Personal Information Through Social Media

More Harm than good
Why social media does more harm than good to youth
Making news friends
if you meet good people great
if you meet bad people that influence bad habits
- drug persuasion
- flash (Amanda todd)
Student group discussions,
Discuss about ideas and thoughts about assignment and skills
- most high-school students share test answers
- not discuss about what might be in the test
- telling what questions are on the test

How are these students going to learn?
using social media to discuss about homework and test papers.
Not Mature Enough
(Mason, 2012)
- Social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have the ability to raise awareness
Singapore => 2nd place in worldwide cyberbullying
female are more likely to do cyberbullying
the ease of accessing
others can join in the comments and support
makes it more attractive
makes it look like its ok to do it
Tu Quoque
Online Privacy
(Leak information)
Anyone can check your profile
leads to
Personal information
facebook check-in
Think before posting something
is it appropriate
Report if something or someone is bugging you
facebook reports
police reports
tell your parents
ask for help
Being Blackmail?
report to police immediately
tell someone you can trust

Balance out your life
don't sit in front of the computer all day
Online dating
don't fall for every guy/girl you meet
you don't even know if the person is real or fake
social media can't help you much
face to face communication
you can tell how the person is feeling by their face expression

tell parents
report it on the social media
tell a trusted friend to help you out
provide education at schools
how harmful social media can be
tell youth there are solutions
Face to face communication
collage interview
job interview
your life isn't a social media
if you think meeting new people will help you get more socialize and help you communicate better... YOU'RE WRONG
Make sure your post are private
not public
especially facebook
(Facebook, 2014)
(Facebook, 2014)

Watch your posts.
Report when things go wrong.
You are not alone.
TImely Reminder...
Lack of Experience
Doesn't have judgement skills

urge to know everything
meet new people on internet
try new things
don't think ahead before doing something
Amanda Todd

-Pressure to do what everyone else do
sharing life experience

updating status
- watching others post their fun
makes you feel jealous

Your brain don't function well when multitasking
open a lot of tabs
social media tabs
cannot concentrate on studies
(Truong, 2012)
(Johnson, 2013)
Urge to be accepted by people
post stupid things on social media because your friends do the same
seeing people post their fun
feel bad because you can't have it
Youth and FOMO
(fear of missing out)
Youth and popularity
Adding people you don't know
to have more people on friend list
sounds cool among friends to have a lot of friends on Facebook
more friends = more popular
