Social Media and Language
There are many people that would agree that social media has enhanced more than hindered the communication of children and adolescents of this generation. Social media has a very large impact on our day to day lives. There are many people in society that cannot function without the constant connection to social media. Using social media websites is among the most common activities to pass the time of today’s children and adolescents (). In my experience social media is enhancing our development in communication skills in our day to day live all around the world.
In our day to day lives our communication is always being advanced we are learning new ways to communicate, such as sign language, texting and snapchatting. Within these new advances to communication children and adolescents are learning to become more independent so they dont have to rely on their parents to help them with everything. As said on “studies have showen that we polosh our communication skills when we chat online using various socil media sites”(itviZ multimedia) withen the face to face c omunication envorerment we have the chose on who we simulate a conversation with very easlily. If someone were to be shy they can overcome this by communication online until they feel that they are confident about themselves to engage is a real face to face conversation with a new person. We have found new ways to communicate even if it’s just not face to face we have instant messaging,facebook, and snapchat we are still improving our social skill it’s just not face to face. We have developed a new technological era that has modernized the way we communicate with our generation .
Many people believe that the children and adolescents of this generation are being hindered more then enhanced by social media. If you are to look at there reasoning for this they do have very decent points and facts on why they have the right to believe this. The professionals are showing that children and adolescents that are on social media have more drama and emotional problems. They never have down time. Someone might also hold the view point that social media is hindering our ability to learn, both in and out of the classroom. The learning environments affected include class participation, homework completion, on the job, or community activities. Some people may believe that because we aren’t practicing our everyday direct communication skills that we are losing out on the ability to communicate in-person. However, communication comes in many forms and as long as you are continuing to practice it your conditioning to master it. Teenagers breed drama, regardless of the circumstances or platform they are communicating within. Learning and social media are both so involved in our day to day lives that they no longer can be separated and defined as two different things. therefore , learning environments will have to co exist with social media. As i will say again as long as you are practicing the everyday communication indirectly or directly then you are continuing to master communication without a doubt because social media is a new form of communication for this new technological era .
We as a new generation are learning to create new and improved way to communicate in our day to day lives around society in a new technological era. Social media has impacted our generation in big way and has made it easy to stay connected to the outside world.
