Abstract

Identifying how social media impacts people’s behavior is a significant task. Social media is a tool and platform for people to share information, express opinions, and contact each other. But with its convenience, there come some defects in this communication pattern. The results obtained in this research show that, by combining and summarising previous studies on reflection on relationships, social skills, and distraction, when indulged in social media too much, people are more likely to feel lonely, empty, and isolated. Moreover, it could also damage their relationships in actual life. After being exposed to social media, there has been some evidence that some users can develop negative personality traits, such as narcissism, insecurity, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It can also impact interpersonal relationships; for one thing, some people may find difficulties maintaining a good relationship, while some parents can’t forge a good relationship with their children because much of their attention is drawn to social networking apps.
