Social media

In this modern era, where everyone is very much interested in social networking, social networking sites have become a norm. Although some parents might think there are no advantages of it, teenagers are actually getting benefits from social networking.
The first benefit of social networking for teenagers is that it can help to strengthen friendships. When teens have healthy friendships, they do not only accept who they are, but they also feel less isolated and more connected to the world around them.

I was watching a TEDx Talk by Gautam Khetrapal back in November of last year. Mr Khetrapal asked his audience if they had a smartphone. The camera did not show the audience, but by the look of his expression, I am assuming a majority of them put their hands up. He then asked how many of them had the same phone in the past 2 years. Again, the camera did not show the crowd, but through his reaction, hardly anyone put their hands up.
