Social Media 'Exposes Girls To Sexual Media' By: Sherman Teo

Social media websites nowadays are leaving young people open to cyber bullying. Some sites allow users to sign up for a profile, with a name and photograph. Users choose which questions to answer, with the option to “like” answers, and in some cases, to share them on well known sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The anonymity provided by the sites has made them a hotbed for sexual pressure, bullying and abuse.

In my opinion, I think that social media is causing a lot of people to get hurt online. Some of these sites allow other users to ask others questions anonymously. Some of these comments will start to hurt not only the users but the people around them too. This will cause their friends to have a different perspective about them. Making them feel insecure about themselves eventually.
