Disconnect -
Jackson Brown


Using social media Web sites is among the most common activity of today’s children and adolescents. Any Web site that allows social interaction is considered a social media site, including social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Instagram, youtube.

About 90 percent of young adults in the US use social media, and most of users visit these sites at least once a day. Social Media has changed the way the current generation connects with their peers and views the world. They spend less time connecting with their peers in person and more time in connecting with them by social media.

Use of social media may detract from face-to face relationships, reduce investment in meaningful activities, increase sedentary behavior by encouraging more screen time, lead to Internet addiction, and erode self-esteem through unfavorable social comparisons.

There is fear of missing out (FOMO). FOMO is really the fear of not being connected to our social world, and that need to feel connected sometimes trumps whatever’s going on in the actual situation we’re in. The more we use social media, the less we think about being present in the moment.”
