Senior research paper
Seniors in high school have been in most likely the same school for about four years. They have seen the same people for four years straight. They all know each other even if they don’t talk or aren’t friends. Yet there is still an abundance of negative comments on social media and in the public. As a society what we don’t realize is that we bring all these people down with negative comments, but we have the same power to build so many people up with positive comments.
It’s the 21st and the amount of people that either have a smart phone or a tablet is by far close to 5 Billion. Children as young as 6 and 7 have some sort of technologies. Due to the amount of children who have some sort of pocket technology there is an over active amount of negative comments or status and picture that people post on social media. This is caused by the amount of young children who may not have the maturity to be on social media. In retrospect when Facebook and Myspace came out there was an age requirement now a days an animal or pet can have a social media account. The amount of leniency give to the public on social media is redundant. When you have six year olds who are under developed on social media, they start picking on their peers as jokes but they aren’t taken as jokes. A sixteen year old doesn’t even take joke comments as jokes so therefore a six year old defiantly cannot.
As stated earlier as we the people have so much power to positive things. If we would all just come together as a unit we could change the outlook that people have on body types that are only excepted if they weigh 90 pounds or less. As of right now there are billions of people around the world suffering from depression based on the fact that they don’t look like the models on social media and in magazines. We could have a 90 percent cure rate from all the people suffering from depression caused by majorly low self-esteem.
Not only young girls and women have self-confidence issues, males of all ages do to. Think about it, when you were younger if you were a female you were served light pettiest food and if you were a boy you were a boy you were made to eat so you could grow big and strong. Not all males have the body type to be tall and buff. Some males are naturally skinny and some are naturally thicker than others.
A lot of obesity already consumes the U.S. With all the negativity on people’s body size, the rate of obesity will never decrease. All the negative comments will cause is anxiety so they will just eat more and more unhealthy and become depressed which could cause them to stay in bed all day.
All this talk about what impact social media and media photos have in general is an eye opener at what positive things it could do. Not only could social media positively impact people through self-confidence, but we could raise awareness for so many things.
In my research I found that there is a college that is trying to make a software program for social media that can read negative comments and block them from being posted. It won’t fix all the problems but could fix the majority.
In conclusion if we used the negative power to do positive things, we could have a turnaround rate of depression, anxiety, and not to mention self-harm and suicide.
