Behind every photo we see, are we truly looking at the reality of how our lives are real and raw? Media and technology are having greater and greater effects on our lives, both positively and negatively. Teens and adults alike are known to spend hours on phones, ipads, tablets, and laptops.
It is frequently said that they aimlessly scroll through Facebook, send Snapchats, and look at Instagram that entire time, yet many teens have acknowledged that they often don’t use their phones for any other purpose other than for entertainment. Phone and social media usage is becoming an addiction to many, causing various underlying issues that no one likes to talk about.
Numerous studies have shown that the ever increasing usage of cell phones actually leads to anxiety, depression, and a feeling of isolation.
