I thank you for this opportunity to speak here today and bring my knowledge and company to you at London School of Economics. But at first, I would like to present myself for those of you who doesn’t know who I am.
My name is Marisa Ranthe, and I am a one of your fellow students here at the Department of Media and Communications at London School of Economics and today I am going to talk about social media but mainly social responsibility.
Social media distract us from human interaction. If you think of the situation in our school canteen – what do you do while eating with your friends?
I repeatedly see students on their phone being on Facebook, Instagram and stuff like that, sliding throw their homepage filled with marketing, pictures of their friends and a lot of different things.
No one talks to their friends or keep eye contact. Instead of chatting hey are just liking photos, retweeting tweets or updating their status.
School is a place where students learn new things but more importantly, learn to interact with other human beings. If social media networks are not banned in school, students will lack human interaction and not develop social skills.
