Social Media


Anaya Bryant, Social Media Editor

10 girls, 13 years old and 14 years old. Had to give up social media for 2 weeks (14 days). When they are on social media they get attached when looking at it because they see all these ideas and pretty  girls and they want to be like them. When the teens got off of social media then, they got a lot of sleep and got to hang out with there family more. But when their friends got on social media they tried to get them off of it, and when they got their friends off of social media they got to do much more fun things then just look at photos and not talking to each other.  When they got their phones back they were weirded out and really did not want to get back on. When they got back to there normal thing they were confused.

Social Media affects me by. Me always thinking that i’m not good enough  because all he girls are so much prettier than me. But it also causes a lot of drama because if you dont post with someone, then they could think that your mad at them. But i stay up all night staying up on social media texting my friends and sharing photos and other things. When i’m on social media i feel stressed and it can cause me crying, because people can say a lot of mean things. I been called fat, ugly and etc. I don’t get how someone can be so mean when all you want to do is live your life


 I don’t really use social media a lot, but if I did then I would be on for like 4 hours then get carried away with time. I would be on for a long time, more than 4 hours. But i don’t stay on for long because there is more in life than social media. I would like to go to the movies with my friends and have more fun than on my friends. When i  stay over my friends over at the house. I always on there phones, and i always tell them to get off and do something else. When they did we had more fun with sleeping over and had ice cream, and went to the pool and had a lot of fun and played with her cats. The best day ever, because there was no social media in the way.


How I feel about social media. I think that social media is okay , but i can make me feel bad about myself because people can be really mean and say somethings that is not to nice and I try to be a really nice person and don’t say anything. But i try to not pay attention but it can get out of hand when it start to affect you at school, that happened to me before that why i really don’t like social media a lot anymore. But it okay because that how i talk to my friends when there really far away, or moved.
