Impact of Social Media on Youth in 2018


The Social Media is a market in itself worth more than $100 billion. It first came into existence about two decades back but the internet boom hadn’t happened for another ten years, and the awareness about social media was yet to take a grip.  In this article, we will be talking about the hype of Social Media, how the youth is attracted towards social media specifically talking about WhatsApp’s impact on youth in 2018. 

The Begining

It all happened about a decade later as the internet took off and Social Media was announced at the global stage as a market that could be worth a trillion dollars. The market took steady steps and started rising through the ranks with five big players in the game namely Facebook, Whatsapp, Linkedin, Instagram, and Snapchat.

As we move ahead, we will specifically talk about the impact that Social Media has on youth in 2018 and Whatsapp in particular!

Social Media, in particular, has features that allow you to communicate with people from all over the world and from anywhere; you can greet them with Good Morning Images, celebrate with Happy Birthday Images, have a call and so much more.

Social media has also stated to motivate fellow youngsters to work and also helps people to keep up with happenings from all around the world. It has certain positive and negative benefits, but the cons overpower the pros.

It has been seen that kids and teenagers are glued to their phone instead of going out and exploring themselves and their talent regarding art, Sports or anything outdoor. The addiction has also played a part in a downgrade of their studies and has brought them more of into an imaginary world.

Whatsapp has different features such as Love Quotes, online status and story update, blue tick on delivery, hundreds of emoticons, and others that keep today’s youth glued over WhatsApp. There are other features but the way we see teenagers glued to their phone sharing jokes and texting all the time is a thing that we should worry about in 2018.

The recent update in Whatsapp also allows you to do conference video calls, make a business account, add members in a group.

There are other social media channels such as Instagram and Snapchat that don’t help the cause and attract millions of youth towards their features of stories and picture uploads.

So, we have come to a point where we can easily decide that there are more negative’s to look after than positives. This is a matter that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible.
