The media can affect teens in a negative way. Say that they see a movie with lots of violence. They could then go out on the streets and kill because they think it’s cool.

The media isn’t all that bad. There are some good things about it, like raising awareness. With the media, teens don’t have to be always in a bubble. But with exposure to various media outlets, they can develop awareness about society and the world.

Info:Social media helps build a teen’s confidence. When they post something on a social media site and they get comments that say “omg ur so awesome" or something similar, it will help their self-esteem.
