The basic and the most common disadvantage of Social media is that it creates addiction very fast. It can even weaken their eyesight as well as can damage their mental health. Social media platforms create a type of obsession among youngsters to be updated all the time, post pictures, stories, etc. which is definitely a negative effect. Once they get addicted, they start getting disconnected from their family members, relatives and friends. They build a wall of social media near themselves.

Social media can be bad for the growing up children as they take away time from a students life.In the adolescent period there is a lot of curiosity in children to know about many things  and the social media give access to offensive images and videos which can be detrimental to their growth.The children can be lured into bad friendships in the virtual world who can turn out to be abusers or cheats.In the social media platform there is no personal connection with the people we meet online and the children can meet frauds and end up in criminal or cyber crimes.
