Caution: Distraction using social media platforms like youtube, Facebook, Instagram

Social Media helps to connect the people but also distracts the people. Social Media is the bane and a boon in society. Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram have changed society in many ways. Now people are there more on social media, and the face-to-face connection is very less. Hence there is a lot of distraction using social media platforms. The distraction is both positive and negative, in our opinion.

Table of Contents

Positive distractions

  • A positive distraction relates to people getting distracted from their tensions and getting a medium to share their views and opinions on other people’s posts. A youtube video has great reach and hence distracts us from our overthinking habits, daily tensions, etc. 
  • Listening to a song on youtube is easy and has no cost hence taking us in a good mood and therefore distracting us.

Negative distractions

  • For kids, Social Media is a major distraction in their lives. A social media-active kid now wants to become a YouTuber instead of studying and working hard.
  • A social media active kid leaves his/her homework and spends most of their time on youtube, Facebook, or scrolling reels on Instagram.
  • Social Media is so full of content that you sit down for 5 minutes and forget the time, and from 5 it becomes 50 minutes, and hence you lose on work, time, and money. This distraction is dangerous.
  • Social Media is a vast platform, and not all content is kid-friendly. Though Facebook, Instagram, youtube try to filter content on the basis of age groups and block the restricted content, there is a time lag and hence leads to distraction. This is a very disastrous type of distraction and can be very harmful to the good growth of children.
  • On social media, everything is very beautiful, every person is very rich, and no one has any problem. Hence making people materialistic and making them distracting. Social Media is widely just a platform where content is shared, and content can be cooked, so relying on every word can distract people.

How to avoid social media distractions

  • Even if you are working on the computer, turn off the browser and windows, keep your phone away, and pledge not to look at it.
