Aside from cyberbullying, oversharing and sexting issues, social media also can put negative pressure on friendships, especially when one friend is very active about posting pictures, status updates and opinions that hurt others. Here are four ways to tell if social media is hurting your teen’s friendships. “Social media provide a very effective way of keeping old friendships going, so we shouldn’t knock it,” Dunbar says.

One of the perks of social media is being able to engage in the. Gradually, it seems social media has altered the DNA of friendship, and frankly, it makes me sad. In looking back at failed attempts to win friends (and keep them) over the past year, I’ve discovered six areas where social media is wreaking havoc on our friendships.

It Creates a False Sense of Intimacy. Social media makes us feel like we know. With the pervasiveness of social media in modern teen culture, teenagers spend much less time communicating over the phone and face-to-face than they used to.

Think of the scenarios that are created. Every time you log in your online friends are sharing the happiest moments in their lives. Hookups are not bad necessarily, but these apps do introduce them, which contributes to problems that many people have when trying to look for someone to date. Instagram and Snapchat enable young people to have expectations of what a relationship should be, and those expectations are. 1. We’re lacking social skills.

Being able to just “slide into the DMs” or type out a quick Facebook message makes people a lot more confident in having a conversation. Talking to someone when you don’t have to see them face to face and worry about how. Social media has strengthened relationships.

83% of teen social media users say that it makes them feel more connected to information about their friends. This chapter takes an in-depth look at the role of social media in teens’ friendships, looking at teen friendships more broadly defined. Social media is an important venue for interaction and conversation among America’s youth. Fully 76% of all teens use social media. Facebook is the dominant platform, with 71% of all teens using it.

Other studies also have observed links between high levels of social media use and depression or anxiety symptoms. A 2016 study of more than 450 teens found that greater social media use, nighttime social media use and emotional investment in social media — such as feeling upset when prevented from logging on — were each linked with worse sleep quality and higher levels of. And it’s becoming an increasingly prevalent peril to friendship in our social-media-saturated society.

Take, for instance, Julie, 31, who hardly recognizes her dear friend — a quiet, socially awkward individual with a biting sense of humor when among close friends — on social media.

Most people would say that social media strengthens friendships, but what about real intimacy and personal attention?

While there is a dark side to what takes place, teens still relish the friendship opportunities that social media provide.

They think social media is harmless, that virtual friendships are no more hazardous than real ones, because they don’t have the cognitive sophistication to go beyond their own immediate experiences and feelings— which is why most kids don’t recognize the dangers until something bad happens.

These are but a few of the playful ways in which teens responded to social media sites’ requests for information by providing inaccurate information that actually contains meaningful signals about friendship and sociality.

But, with the increasing amount of time today’s children are spending on the social media, the more recluse they become from the real world, abstaining from acquiring the necessary social skills and behavior patterns.

  • Aliyah if you want to change your content go ahead, nobody can tell you if you can or not because it’s your channel not theirs, you worked to get where you are they didn’t do the work for you. Us true Aliyah simone fans will support you and will still be here ��. And it’s crazy how people are saying “that’s not the real Aliyah” but they dont know who you are behind the camera

  • I find that friendships on social media are not genuine, just flat with no way telling if that friend is really your friend or just an acquaintance. I tend to lose contact with people I care about. Maybe it’s best to not have any friends and delete all social media. A friend you can always trust is your dog or cat. Pets make better friendships more than people.

  • Just say it like it girl us bitches don’t know you fr.We only see what she wants us to see guys so give her a break. I’ve been what for this gurrrlll. TURN IT UP!!!

  • People love to put others in THEIR box and then act like they know you from a 20 minute video and that’s that, y’all have to know people grow, change, and develop in themselves and that’s a beauty in being a human��

  • I honestly believe you should do whatever makes you happy. You’ll pick up new people who actually enjoy your content as you continue to grow your channel. I feel like it’s better to enjoy what your doing then be doing something you don’t enjoy and being unhappy. Plus the more you enjoy what you do the better your content will be lol.

  • The only person who knows you is YOU!!

    thats the whole thing about growing up people don’t like to see you growing up or just expect or perceive you to be what they assume from social media and when you do something “out of the ordinary” they think you’re changing and not realizing thats been a part of you this whole time

    Trust me I️ just turned 25 and still deal with it where people still expect me to be the same person they perceive me to be 10 years ago heck even 10 seconds ago.. at the end of the day stay true to yourself, and you just started college this is only just the beginning you will experience more things probably gonna say the same thing in the next few weeks or years to come just continue to be you and true to yourself only your real supporters (& me and new subbie) will always be here supporting and cheering you on

  • You look so prim and proper and lady like those swear words don’t even sound right. lol. Cute though! ����you’re probably a beast in real life. lol��

  • 10 points for efforts…Coz it takes a lot of effort to find a place in India where there is no Internet..Lost interest as soon as she started off

  • God I use to be the biggest attention seeker on this earth! Since I was a child. Because I wanted validation and for people to love me. But then out of the blue I decided to try and give it up. Give up wanting attention, give up wanting to be famous, you get the idea. Giving up all that shit is the key to living a peaceful, happy life. It’s the desire to be a celebrity that’s causing you to have a chaotic life. That’s what I think.

  • 1:40 oof hit me there. I move constantly, and easily throw things away while moving. I’d say I do see most friendships as more disposable… there’s only a couple I see as necessary really.

  • I really hope you follow through and change up your content and not let these little kids change your mind. I was on your live and when I tell you I could feel the frustration….sissss. Do youuu!
    Edit: can I just say some of the people on your live in the comments be so damn annoying and immature. I honestly be trying to ignore reading the chat cause oooo chileee��

  • Aw aliyah…i love you so much and i honestly believe that you have the mind to do whatever the fuck you want to do. You’re super smart and business minded… do what you want and i’m going to follow right behind ya!

  • What if a person had only a few signs said above, if a person is outgoing, extrovert, and naturally outspoken what does that mean?

  • Hate attention so much I canceled a birthday party my husband was planning for me. Once I learned he had a magician scheduled I was upset with myself cause that would have been a fun way to direct attention away from me.

  • I’m not sure how to put this. The information you have is very good, but I felt like you were being very condescending in your delivery of the information. Very snotty Overtone, which made it very hard to listen to what you were saying. And I’m pretty sure you’re going to say to yourself, well they don’t know what they are talking about. Look at how many likes I have. And what you said about uniqueness you’re only looking at one side of that. Some people do things for the soul purpose of self-expression. Which is unique! Which you did not state and their is nothing wrong with it. Take a look at artists….

  • I’m actually really excited for this new chapter of Aliyah, I’ve been here for a few years and especially being the same age, I also understand where you’re coming from when it comes to growing up. The content I’ve been watching lately is wayy different compared to 3-6 months ago. I’m definitely here for it! ��

  • I honestly love it you gone always have support on my end girl I definitely can relate GO LIVE YOUR LIFE HUN!!!!!❤️❤️❤️ just keep me updated every now an then ������!!!

  • Yes before I used to be an attention seeker but now I realized it and want to change my old ways..yes I still get lonely when I have no people approaching me but it’s not that I crave attention it’s just that I’m tired..

  • When you said “you don’t even know my government name” I lost it ������ that is so true. You ain’t lie no where in this video. Just be you, no matter what you put out I know I’ll be there to watch����

  • IF ANY OF YALL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ALIYAH GROWING UP REFLECT ON YOUR OWN SELF!! if you can’t accept the fact that her content is gonna change bc she’s a fricken human and is changing as well go watch some Ryan’sToyReview or something idk! BYE! personally i love her ig lives bc it’s just so raw and herself and i’ve been waiting for a change in her content like this. i’m so excited to see the new content. don’t get me wrong i love the big sis aliyah but i still would love to see her actual personality not just the filtered, advice, kiddie content. i wanna hear about her college life and new experiences. ALSO MIND YALL OWN BUSINESS SOMETIMES SHEESH!! ik i’m nosy but some of y’all are next level! GET IT TOGETHER. anyway love you aliyah! do what you want to do bc imma watch anyway!:)

  • Great content, But Having to deal with infidelity is to make sure you are not just assuming your partner is cheating, as a policy, don’t say they are cheating until you have gathered proof of their act, confrontation without evidence is just unacceptable, i contacted @brandhackers1 on Instagram and on WhatsApp on +19163042321. i was in the eye of the storm with my now Ex, i saw all her mails, WhatsApp messages, Kik and even pictures she exchanged with her lover, but it was easier at the end really, having proof helps lot. Email:brandhackers1 @ gmail. com

  • Girl,,you just post whatever you want. I’ll still watch it. I totally love your channel btw and would really like to hear you talk about sex and such topics

  • Yasss Aliyah we love an unfiltered video I also love how you like to do things differently and be different with your videos. Love watching your videos. ��

  • I’ve been watching yhu since I was in 4th grade now I’m a freshman in high school and I’ll always support yhu stay positive babe❤️�� can’t wait to see the new and improved Aliyah❕

  • im secretly an attention whore but i act like i hate attention, then my friends give me attention to “annoy” me but i actually like the attention lol

  • I definitely get where you are coming from personally. I can still see you as that big sister cause thar TikTok was honestly hilarious in my opinion ��❤️

  • Aw I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this it seems stressful just you explaining it. I know you’ll pull through even better on the other side!

  • I’m actually really excited about some new content from you. The kiddie content does get old and I don’t blame you, but at the end of the day this is YOUR channel and you have the liberty to do and change what you want as you please. Don’t ever hinder your personality and how you act because a few kids can’t accept the fact that you’re a growing person and you will change. Change is apart of life and no one can take that from you. Just know that I will always love you and support you and what you do. Remember, big sister don’t always have to be clean to be a good sister. They are the ones that have to get you ready for the real world and what’s gonna happen behind closed doors growing up! I love you! ��

  • be grateful she didn’t just disappear LIKE OTHER YOUTUBERS, she explained herself when she should not have to. aliyah gotta do what she gotta doooooooo

  • As you shoulddddd�� grow up on us, live life experience it and tell us ❗️ your true supporters (like meee) will be here for all of it and still support you no matter what content you post. Ilysm��

  • Captions aren’t just for the hard-of-hearing, you can use them when the content is interesting but the vocal fry is driving you nuts.

  • Honestly I watched you while in highschool and I’m going into college so I get it I’m glad I can’t watch someone my age in the same class and situations
