  • raise your hand if you have social media.

  • Wow, that's almost everybody.

  • Now raise your hand if you have ever looked at your feet and felt left out or lonely.

  • Yeah, I know quite a bit.

  • Well, you're not alone.

  • Many people, especially teenagers, struggle with feelings of loneliness due to social media usage.

  • A study published by the University of Pittsburgh found that people who use social media heavily, which is two hours or more a day, reported feeling isolated two times more than the people who only use social media for half an hour a day or less.

  • And depression can stem from these feelings of loneliness because of social media, Teenage depression is at an all time high.

  • In fact, a study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology said that teenage depression has risen almost 60% between the years 2009 and 2017.

  • This directly correlates with the rise in social media and with this rise and depression comes arise in suicide.

  • Suicide is now the second leading cause of death in ages 10 to 24 years old globally, right behind accidents such as car crashes.

  • But enough of the harrowing statistics.

  • I have two true stories.

  • Let me begin with Rebecca's Rebecca Anning Nello was a student at Grand Island High School.

  • There, she played violin in her school orchestra, and she was a member of the Grand Island Ski Club.

  • Choose a very caring girl.

  • She loved baby sitting and taking care of her pet rabbit when she wasn't in school or taking part of the many clubs she was in.

  • She loves spending time with her friends and family.

  • But on December 20th 2015 she unexpectedly took her life.

  • She was only 14 years old when her father reflects on her death.

  • He said that social Media definitely had a role.

  • He said that social media creates false feelings of closeness with others.

  • And that's how Rebecca felt.

  • He said it was particulary Lee painful for Rebecca when people wouldn't respond to her on social media.

  • My second story is of braid and speed.

  • He was 18 when he took his life last October.

  • He was a senior at Prosper High School.

  • His parents describe him as charming, athletic and sweet, with the twinkling smile and beautiful eyes.

  • He looked a little younger than his age, but his demeanor was much more mature, and because of that, he found a safe haven and band where most of his friends were seniors.

  • That was lost during his sophomore year, when most of his friends graduated.

  • Throughout the rest of high school.

  • Reagan would use social media as a way to measure himself, who had the most followers likes, and comments were questions that mattered to him.

  • He would spend hours on his phone looking at pictures of his friends at parties that he wasn't invited to.

  • That was hard on him.

  • His struggle ultimately ended because of his struggle with social isolation and the depression that stemmed from it.

  • Unfortunately, his situation is all too common.

  • In fact, in one year, almost 15 kids for every 100,000 will commit suicide.

  • The constant interconnectedness of our world can be both a bliss and a nightmare.

  • When social media was originally created, it was meant to bring us together, but ironically, it ended up driving us apart.

  • This is because of one misconception about social media that is an alternative to face to face interactions.

  • In reality, there's no substitute to in person interactions.

  • This is because how someone acts on social media is completely different than how they would act in person.

  • This phenomenon is called the online disinhibition effect.

  • This is where people are more confident online, so they post things that they normally wouldn't say in person.

  • A recent dispute among Gayle, King, Lisa Leslie and CBS about Kobe Bryant is a prime example.

  • Basically, Gayle King was interviewing Lisa Leslie about her friend Kobe Bryant and Bryant.

  • Sexual allegations came up.

  • CBS posted a 32nd clip meant to entice viewers to watch the full interview.

  • This clip, which was taken out of context, was only about King asking Leslie about the allegations against Bryant.

  • Many got mad, and Gayle King received death threats and nasty comments because of this one common.

  • That stuck out in particular was one that said cowardly, disrespectful and classless.

  • Gayle King.

  • You aren't half the human being Kobe Bryant Waas.

  • I think it's safe to say that the person who commented this would not have said this to Gayle King's face.

  • So the question still remains.

  • How are we going to solve this ever present social media issue?

  • When asked, researchers and psychologists say that limiting our time spent on these APS is the best way.

  • As a teenager, I realize it's very hard to follow that advice.

  • In addition to trying to limit our time on these abs, we can also reconsider the content of our post.

  • Here's a few things we can change.

  • First of all, we want to try to avoid posting exclusive posts.

  • Ah, good rule of thumb is to put yourself in your followers shoes, for example.

  • We shouldn't post pictures were only a select.

  • Few were invited.

  • Don't get me wrong.

  • Taking pictures with friends is a great way to preserve memories, but posting them online just reminds followers that they weren't invited.

  • The only people who need those photos were the people in attendance.

  • Secondly, hate comments must come to an end.

  • As mentioned before, these comments are easily recognized and quite common.

  • For instance, these types of comments usually flare up around elections.

  • This is because normally, civilized friends are insulting each other on social media because their political views differ.

  • Here's a few things we can do, Though we can post inspiring public events like a concert, a sports event or even a tech speech, we can strive to post original ideas that foster can activity based on shared interests.

  • These ideas include how we can better help our world ourselves and our community.

  • We can harbor positivity by posting wholesome things such as one's plants, animals, scenery, inspiring objects, books and shows.

  • For instance, I have a neighbor that owns three cats.

  • Whenever she post pictures or videos of them, it warms my heart and it makes my day.

  • We need more stuff like that on social media.

  • As I mentioned before, braid ins and Rebecca situation is all too common.

  • Social media users need to build people up instead of tear them down.

  • The reason why I chose to speak on this topic is because it hit close to home.

  • In my school, we had a recent tragedy.

  • The boy who took his life was a senior named Lance a leap.

  • His friends recall him as always, having a smile on his face, and they're being very joyful.

  • And because of that, nobody saw how isolated he felt.

  • On many days, I wonder if Lance had the benefit of a more mindful social media.

  • Then he might still be with us today, so I ask all of you to pause before you post.

raise your hand if you have social media.
