Social Media and Mobile Internet Use among Teens and Young Adults

The rage of social media is such that now-a-days many people when they do not get the desired attention they seek, it leads to depression in them ultimately which leads to suicide as they feel that they have lost their respect. Many youngster and adults constantly keep on updating what they are doing or where they are. Due to which they fall prey to scams as the scammers already know what the individual is up to. (E.g.) When a group of young girls plan a party at a location far away from their house and update their status or plan about the event online they do not know that this information is open for anyone to read. Due to which they fall prey to dangers such as kidnapping. As we all know that there is no proper restriction to adult content on internet due to which many children and underage youngsters are also able to access it. Due to which many of them become sexually active thus leading to early pregnancy and resulting in population explosion and many times rape also. Many people fall prey to hacking which is done on internet which results to their personal data being stolen and sometimes leaked online. This also leads to suicide among people as they cannot bear the burden of their personal life being exposed. A recent case can be seen that the I-cloud server was hacked due to which many celebrities lost their personal photos and videos in which they were captured nude. Through internet one can also learn how to make a bomb. Even the regular detergent can be used as a bomb this idea can be seen on the internet.
