Social Media has much advantages and importance in the society today where it helps in easy communications, business promotion, podcasting, lecturing and many other things you could think of, Social media plays an important role in online marketing for business promotion which is a must for every serious business owners to have a social media account and me active on it in order to reach more buyers or partners to create more leads, social media such as Facebook has grown into a certain stage that nearly everyone above 14 years old in Nigeria has a Facebook accounts and millions of Nigerian Facebook users are active on it everyday and they do so to gain more friends and somehow keep themselves busy. Now back to our topic, ”To Every Advantage there is Disadvantage” This quoted text occurs to everything in the world, you would be thinking that how can social media have disadvantages? Yes Social Media poses great disadvantages to mostly Nigerians Teenagers and Youths mainly those that are not yet married and one thing social media takes from you is your “Social Life”, your social interaction with your friends, relatives and many others, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp takes most our time and they are the first applications we check whenever we woke up from bed, Most Teenagers are addicted to social media and one thing they failed to forget is social media takes most their time, I can definitely remember when I used to be active on social media for good 18 hours every day and am quite sure others like me then stays more than that, what we derive then was the fun chatting with friends and laughing over meaningless stuffs and I didn’t know that it takes most of my time to talk with my friends physically and have fun my engaging my body which seems good.
According to science, Loneliness can trigger self-suicidal ideation in young people and can affect their total well-being, a practical example, you will notice that when you are busy chatting on social media like Facebook you will stay in one position for a long time like laying down on your couch or bed on sitting down so as to concentrate but this is not good for health which can easily cause mental disorder and cause health problem by generating white blood cells which are not good for health . Social Media are taking the precious time we have to do other things to chats with our friends which might not be important. You would say there are some groups and communities on social media network that someone can join and will not feel lonely, it is true but I know you know that there is a huge difference between physical interaction and online interaction because physical interactions requires your body movement and makes you move from one place to make the interaction more fun while online interaction involves you typing after sending the receiver might reply you if so willing and it sometimes delayed which creates loneliness if the receiver at the other end wish not to reply you.
Safety Measures: We advise you to limit the time you spend with your smartphone and create room for physical interaction with your friends the more to reduce loneliness and increase your health stability status because when you have fun and you smile, laugh during the process you will age well not when you always make your face squeezed all the time how do you think you will age answer the question yourself.
Am dropping my Pen here, it is better for your health to be stable and active than to be active and stable on any social media please make use of your time for something productive don’t give your parents extra burden to cater for because a word is enough for the wise.
