Reflection

1.Include 3-5 quotes from the episode that you found interesting.

-“Phenomenon number two is: we love freaking out about the internet. There is, again, every week, “Oh look, something terrible happened on the internet.” So I think both of those are real ingredients in why there’s a backlash.”

People is interested in something bad that happened in real life but show on the internet.Also the quotes shows the Internet can spread news efficiently and correctly.

-“Social media is no more likely to make young people feel depressed, less confident, less popular, or worse about themselves in 2018 than it was in 2012, according to our brand new research.”

Social media can help teenagers build their confident, it is truth that they can find happiness through the Internet, not only bad thing can be learnt online.Sometimes teenagers can feel themselves more on the Internet.From the time, we can find that follow the time, technology developed fast and have more positive effects for people who use electronics.

-“But one thing I wanted to get to was parents’ role in device addiction, if we want to call it that, which is parents are actually using devices just as much as teens are, and so, I think role modeling is a really important factor here. If we want our teens to have more face-to-face conversations and be on their phones less, then we need to model that behavior ourselves.”

Leading by example play a important role for parents if they want their child to be far away from the electronics, there is almost no influence for children if parent in device addiction.
2.How the episode used the conventions and to what effect?

They add the preview that introduce the topic and the main theme about what’s going on and they have the music before they have formal conversation, it gives readers a good atmosphere and bring interest to readers and let them want to keep reading. Also there is BGM through all the episode. Not only music but also the standard introduction of the narrators themselves.They have enough information, such as news, data, guest and someone’s experience. At the end, after they finish their conversation they said goodbye and thank you for listening and reading, there are many links for the information details, readers can learn more from the links included in the episode.
3.What about this episode helps you pick the challenge to try out?

I know more details about the social media, such as the advantages and disadvantages about it.If I try the challenge about social media I might learn and understand more about the episode, I can have the experience just like the narrators in the episode said. 

4.What new questions do you have as the result of thinking about this episode? (list 2-3)

-“A lot of parents I think don’t understand what’s happening on social media, don’t understand what their teens are doing on their devices, and so they have this really sort of antagonistic relationship. They’re like, “Get off your phone!” You know? It’s like, “Get off my lawn!” And so, I think that that’s really a mistake, and that’s something that can actually cause a weakening of the relationship between parent and teen, which is the last thing you want as the parent of a teenager.”

Why can’t parents understand what’s happening on social media? They always use social media in their daily life.

Parents use social media more than children but why parents still can’t understand their child ?

Parents actually know the benefits of using social media but why they still don’t let their children use it?

  1. I think the most important quote you highlighted was the third one, because I also think that role-modelling of parents is essential to make impacts on their children. If the parents don’t restrict themselves on their devices, it is very likely to make the children behave rebelliously, which would make the situation even worse.
    The question that most interests me is “Parents actually know the benefits of social media but why they still don’t let their children use it?”, because frankly, I also had the same question before, and I think maybe this is the reason why most of the children will be very aggressive and rebellious when their parents ask them to stop looking at their phones.

    maintain and develop supportive relationships
    form their identities (through self-expression, learning and talking
    The question that most interest me is Parents actually know the benefits of using social media but why they still don’t let their children use it? I say this because i wondered why most of the parents know everything abut social media and technology but still they do not let their children connect with people and understand what is it like be one of the social media user

  3. The quote I found most interesting was -“Social media is no more likely to make young people feel depressed, less confident, less popular, or worse about themselves in 2018 than it was in 2012, according to our brand new research.”- So true! On social media, people post so many pictures. Many people around the world end up comparing their bodies, lifestyle, family and happiness to those they see on social media. They start wanting to be that way too. They get so caught up in trying to be like others, they lose themselves.

    The question that I found most interesting was ‘Parents use social media more than children but why parents still can’t understand their child?’. This question really made me think, our parents use social media too, to either stalk their kids or to talk to their friends but when we use it, they hate it. No using phones during a meal, but it doesn’t apply to them. Don’t use devices late at night, but they do that. Then, for the most random things, parents blame social media and devices -_- .Parents really don’t understand that they do the same things we do and rules apply for everyone, no exceptions.

  4. I think the most important quote you highlighted was “Social media is no more likely to make young people feel depressed, less confident, less popular, or worse about themselves in 2018 than it was in 2012, according to our brand new research.”I say this because it shows that social media is not a bad thing for kids, which can support your opinion: parents should do more research about social media. The question that most interests me is “Parents use social media more than children but why parents still can’t understand their children?” It is truth, and parents always tell you that they are working which is also truth.

  5. I think the most important quote you highlighted was “Social media is no more likely to make young people feel depressed, less confident, less popular, or worse about themselves in 2018 than it was in 2012, according to our brand new research.” I say this because people always feel like technology’s bad influence is becoming worse. However, technology is not worse than before, it’s just that people are becoming overly focused on its bad side. People should be more objective.

    The question that most interests me is “Parents use social media more than children but why parents still can’t understand their child?” I say this because I think maybe adults just have more privilege over children in a lot of situation. I think parents understand why we are using social media, but they just don’t want us to do it.
