A Hidden Danger
An unexpected consequence of the exploding popularity of social media among young users appears to be a rising mental health crisis in this age group. The many harmful effects of social media may include:

- Body Dysmorphia

Holding Them Accountable!
Social media platforms are designed to be addictive for users. They manipulate what people see online in order to keep them scrolling and “liking” nonstop content. Companies like Facebook and Instagram have not been held accountable for the apparent serious negative consequences on young people of excessive social media usage, including exposure to divisive content and bullying.
