Too much of anything is bad

As the axiom usually goes, too much of anything is not good. Social media and its effects have not been undocumented. From the rise in phones in schools, to more people on phones will driving we can clearly see how social media has taken a toll on us. As a society we try to figure out different ways to connect, re-invent, and socialize, but when does enough become enough. I believe that soon social media will do more harm than good, as more people are inclined to join these new social medias.
For example, the advent of snapchat has led to more people recording the moment rather than actually enjoying it. Often times people are asked to repeat their actions for social media. When did we lose the moments where we can really just connect with the people around us and not involve our phones. It’s important to remember how this one application used to connect people has distanced many.
Lastly, many of these applications have been used for bullying and negative impacts. The important connections are now being severed for the image on social media. People must achieve the highest amount of likes to stay relevant. The whole world of competitive likes, and social status has produced a new generation where filters and comments and captions mean more than the people in the photo.
