The Dangers Of Social Media

There are many dangers of social media that are important to be aware of. Having social media comes with constant predators watching you. When you post on social media, the posts include information like what state you live in, where you go to school, where your favorite place is to eat, etc. Some of this information can be dangerous for others to know.

In this day and age, we hope that people know not everyone is who they say they are online. There are sexual predators, hackers, identity thieves, and scammers who use social media to trick others. There are a lot of young teens on social media who make that very easy because they have poor judgment. When teens meet people online, it’s important they don’t share any personal information considering the person might not be who they say.

Teens having social media brings them to be exposed to explicit texts, Snapchats, and other content. Teens do not have good enough judgment to know what to do when they receive these. Poor judgment combined with all the freedom social media has could lead to some very scary situations.

All those things have to do with the dangers of strangers on social media. But social media also causes more dangers like depression, anxiety, suicidal intentions, and even a lack of sleep. These things are just as important to be aware of. Parents need to be looking out for these signs to make sure their teens are happy, healthy, and safe.
