Is using Social Media as dangerous as smoking a cigarette?

This was an inquiry question posed by Kaitlyn this week after a discussion about the different ways people communicate. She said that in a way the pressure to use social media is like the pressure to smoke that some teenagers are put under. We then considered whether using social media is as dangerous as smoking a cigarette.

One of the interesting responses was that smoking can affect your physical wellbeing but social media can have just as much harm to your mental health.

What do you think?

 

One thought on “Is using Social Media as dangerous as smoking a cigarette?

  1. I think smoking is more dangerous than social media. There is nothing potentially positive about smoking. There is no way to make it positive or beneficial.

    In contrast, social media can be positive – keeping people in touch, informing them of new things, arranging to meet, correcting mis-information and so on.

    Its a question of how you use it – use it skilfully and its positive and beneficial.
