The article “Kids Who Use Facebook Do Worse in School” by Bonnie Rochman illustrates the pros and cons of using Facebook by kids. On the negative side, it has been found by a research, conducted by Larry Rosen, that teenagers who use Facebook continuously or after a short interval of time during study, relatively weaker in study and have more adverse effects on their health such as more physical disorders, nervousness and depression. Moreover, young adults who use social sites extremely have more psychological disorders. On the positive side, social sites help children to sharpen their ability to understand others and improve their personalities. To conclude, Rosen said that parent’s job has become more difficult now because they are in dilemma that how much time, a student should spend on a social site as too much use of it leads to serious problems and they usually avoid to pay attention on important things because of that diverted stuff whereas a child can become more empathic by using it.
