After quite a bit of thinking I have come to the realization that social networking sites have actually changed the mind-set of the youth.Have you ever noticed that when young people hangout they are more interested in the taking photos, and updating the virtual world rather than enjoy the event that they attend? I believe that the mind sets are one in which they update the sites to seek approval from friends. They look forward to the likes and comments on their photos. These sites in my opinion gives a sense of ‘being somebody’.
Another aspect of how their mind-set has changed is by their lack for privacy. Young people often use social sites to update their status, and whereabouts. With their updates they often tell people what they are thinking or what their next move will be. Is this really a good thing?
I would like to say that I am not “bashing” the sites or the youth but I would just like to say that these social sites can be used in a more productive way than they are being used right now. For example we can use the sites to promote our career, share our views, and waste less time. Let’s use the social networking sites more productively, to our benefit.
