Social Media Impact and Implications on Society By Nick Pernisco, SJMLE Editor
In the past five years, social media websites have become ubiquitous, giving young people a new way to interact with each other and communicate with the world. This new form of communication depends on user- created content, not mass produced messages coming from large media companies.
But as with other media before it, social media's rise to prominence has experienced some very serious growing pains. Companies like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter have struggled to balance an inviting interactive environment with the ultimate pursuit of profits. Thanks

It has been truly integrated with daily life and stimulates the ‘want’ in a society and belittling the true meaning of ‘need’.
Advertisers are heavily targeting youth, as they are predominantly susceptible due to being inexperienced consumers by exploiting their sensitiveness to peer pressure and dominate the “cultural message” propagated by the media.

Music has been around for quite some time, and it appears to will be around forever. It has captured the minds and souls of many people, from all the different races and cultures. People nowadays, in particular teenagers, are obsessed with music and the music world. They go as far as idolizing their favorite artist or artists.

While violence may be a sign of social disorder, there is no justifiable link between the two. Over the past 40 years there have literally been thousands of study's done on this. However, many experts believe that the connection between people's consumption of cinema and television media and their subsequent behaviour have remained persistently elusive. And so comes a time when we must take a step back from this murky lack of consensus and ask - why? Why are there no clear answers on the effect that violence in

Facebook, Twitter and other social platforms have become one of the central activities in human affairs. Used by people around the world promoting communication, social media gives scope to everyone to exhibit their ideas and thoughts. The plethora of social platforms is a revolutionary invention that is changing the way of how people moderate and communicate with others in their daily lives. Although many people admire this revolutionary concept, it can be argued that it has a negative impact on society.

?Well my opinion on the awnser is this; The simpicity of modern media and the widespread on exagerating the truth leads us to see only what is shown and not what is actually real. About 80% of America's media broadcasters are founded and funded my capitalist multinational corporations. They sensationalize anything they think will keep their watchers entranced in a state of fear, lust and consumption. The impact on society is rarely ever a good thing these days, but rather degrads the western world by giving up its culture to the media. In the future I see the media dominating over the majority of the world. People will hand over their lives to what they see on tv, hear on the radio or read in the newspapaer, and those with any inch of intelligence will be forced to watch as the world rots infront of them as if the media is some sort of raging pandemic.

Many inventions revolutionized society and one example is the telephone, which was introduced to society in 1876. The inventor, Alexander Graham Bell developed this idea and the telephone made him famous because communication would never be the same after the development of the telephone. The telephone made an incredible impact on society. The impact could be seen through the quickness of communication, business, easier communication in wars, and some negative effects too.

The media can be considered either be considered positive and negative, but that can usually be determined by society. The group that is usually very heavily influenced on the media are teens. They tend to believe whatever the media says and displays, causing them to behave, dress, speak, talk, and think in a different manner.

As well as an ahistorical, generalized concept of male misogyny. The fact of the matter is that men in our society struggle as well in the media. They struggle because they must always be the dominant one, because if they aren’t dominant they are looked at as weak; and weakness in a man’s mind means being a woman.

In recent years, sociologists, psychologists, and medical experts have gone to great lengths about the growing problem of body image. This literature review examines the sociological impact of media-induced body image on women, specifically women under the age of 18. Although most individuals make light of the ideal body image most will agree that today’s pop-culture is inherently hurting the youth by representing false images and unhealthy habits. The paper compares the media-induced ideal body image with significant role models of today’s youth and the surrounding historical icons of pop-culture while exploring various sociological perspectives surrounding this issue.

More people are becoming dependent on the media and are being affected by it unknowingly. “Over the past five years, the time kids spend using media has increased significantly” (Media's Grip on Tweens and Teens). “According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 87 percent of teens with cell phones use them for texting, sending an average of 50 messages a day. It's not just teens; the same study showed that 72 percent of adult cell phone users also text. More and more teens and adults are also using phones to access social media sites like Facebook and Twitter” (Rossiter, M). While the mass media can have a
