ABSTRACT

Constant engagement of children with social media deprives them of face-face to face contacts and hence opportunities to practice social skills in real time situations. Technological Communication (internet and social media) preference strongly correlated with poor social skills and high social anxiety, while a greater restriction of technology in youth correlated with high social skills. One of the “benefits” advocated over and again by experts in various fields is that social media actually increases and supports the development of social skills. However, technological Communication (internet and social media) preference strongly correlated with poor social skills and high social anxiety, while a greater restriction of technology in youth correlated with high social skills in college. In this study the following five popular benefits from social media that were highlighted over and again, have been examined critically to show the reverse is true.
