THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL NETWORKS
WHAT ARE SOCIAL NETWORKS?
Social media are digital media and methods that enable users to network on the Internet, i.e. to exchange ideas and to create and pass on media content individually or in a defined community or openly in society.
Here are a few examples of the most famous social media platforms today:
Facebook Instagram Twitter Snapchat Whatsapp TikTok
WHY ARE SOCIAL NETWORKS IMPORTANT?
Social networks have become a fundamental asset for every individual in today's society.
You can learn to appreciate the different perspectives of other nations around you and you can get immediate news about all the events in the world.
It is no coincidence that all the newspapers, faced with the collapse in sales, have expanded their online space, creating websites and information profiles on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter ...
A NEW FRONTIER FOR THE NEW GENERATION
Social networks are now part of everyday life and it is now impossible to change that.
It is therefore important that children and young people learn to communicate online to prepare them for future opportunities in the workplace and support them in interacting with friends and family.
NO MORE BORDERS!
The world has changed with the advent of social network. Why?
Well, because social networks remove the boundaries of the meeting between people, in fact today you can send a message to a person on the other side of the globe or you can talk to a person who cannot be seen in real life.
SOCIAL NETWORKS DURING THE PANDEMIC
In particular, during the pandemic that hit the whole world, social networks played a fundamental role: in that period many people felt lonely and were deprived, for obvious reasons, of their freedom; thanks to social networks we have been able to keep in touch with friends and have fun even within our own home.
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN:
THE NEGATIVE INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL MEDIA ON YOUNG PEOPLE
In social media it is particularly easy to find new friends, to share common interests and to feel part of a group. This is usually faster and more successful in the network. In addition, you are mostly unobserved and undisturbed by parents and adults. Often, however, some people can abuse social networks, coming to suffer serious consequences. What are these consequences? Here we show you some examples
Anxiety / depression
Over the past 25 years the rates of anxiety and depression among young people have increased by 70%. This extreme increase is largely due to social media. Everyone shows their best side on social media, so that an unrealistic picture of reality emerges. This often creates an inferior and insufficient feeling in young people, which also affects their body image.
Sleep also suffers from social media. Especially the app "Yotube" robs many young people of sleep. General use of the mobile phone before going to sleep also affects the sleep. The LED lights block the hormones that are responsible for tiredness and sleep.
Hate speech / Cybermobbing
Very many people fall victim to cyberbullying, especially children and young people are affected by this problem. Cyberbullying means deliberately and repeatedly hurting, insulting, etc. people via social media. The victims often feel helpless due to the anonymity of the perpetrators. Most of the victims no longer enjoy going to school, have poor grades and a lack of motivation. Sleep disorders, depression and anxiety disorders can also result from hate speech.
From my point of view, from social networks we can draw more advantages than disadvantages. Everyone today has the opportunity to say what they think and write it down in a comment; and it is good. But unfortunately many people use this opportunity in the wrong way, for example to insult other people. I think that these people represent the worst face of social networks and very often they are the cause of social network being viewed in a bad way. But s.n. are not this. Social networks are a magical place and we are fortunate to live in such an advanced period from a technological point of view. We must not waste this opportunity. We must make the online space grow correctly and try to create an even more developed future.
In my opinion, social media are very important, because through there, you can communicate whener you want. Everyone can express thereselfs and sa whatever they want to. It has it's disatvantages too, you can be cyberbullyied, o when people don'y like what you say, they start to insult you, even when the opinion is inofensivde.

In my opinion, social media is more important than ever wthin society. Especially during the pandemic, social media enable us to have a constant and continuos exchange with our fellow human beings and we manage to keep in touch wthout meeting in real life. However we must be careful that the disadvantages of social media do not outweigh the advantages. For example, you have to pursue cyberbullying as well as possible and try to punish the perpetrators of cyberbullying so that everyone can continue to fell as free as they want on the internet.
In my opinion, social media are all of our live in this moment, because you can play, comunicate with your friends and share your live to other people. but this has some bad things, like strange persons has your information, can know were you live and the thinks you like.
MARIA DEL CARMEN
In my opinion, currently social networks are a means of communication that is being maximized as it gives voice to everyone who wants to express themselves. At present, social networks mark the present day and everyone knows what is happening in the world thanks to them.
Anyone can publish what they want and express their ideas to the world, although the downside is that not everyone puts it to good use. For this reason sometimes there are restrictions ... One of the misuses of the internet and social networks is that sometimes they cyver bullying minors, they also make viral photos that perhaps you did not want etc ... for these and many more reasons you have to learn to use the internet and social networks in a way that does not affect anyone.
If you use technology well, you will get better results.
Social networks are a phenomenon that is gaining more and more followers, especially young people and teenagers. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of this tool:
