Social media is believed to be one of the most toxic and contagious ‘diseases’ of the facilities provided on mobiles. This is because many parents feel as if it causes demotivation and vulnerability to children as well as harmful facilities while the more, exploiting the younger generation and leading them in the wrong ways. Social Media also creates a strong influence on the users as it puts pressure on them to see others doing something that they are not doing which can often cause a child to feel left out or lead to severe depression and anxiety.
