Social media negatively impacts social propriety in the following ways:
How to use social media properly

Depression – Social media allows you to see the best parts of other people’s lives, which you then compare to the negative things on your own. Making comparisons to other people leads to anxiety and unhappiness, and social media has made it much easier for this to happen.

Cyberbullying – Children are not the only ones who are affected by cyberbullying. Adults can also be harmed by online abuse. You may not even realize you are being a jerk on social media or other websites because screens hide our faces.

FOMO (Fear of missing out) – Basically, FOMO is feeling anxious about missing out on other people’s positive experiences. For example, check your messages all day to see if anyone has invited you out, or look at your Instagram feed to make sure nobody is doing anything cool without you. That’s what causes FOMO.

Unrealistic Expectations – Using Snapchat, people share their exciting adventures, post about how much they adore their significant others on Facebook, and stage heavily staged Instagram photos.

In reality, you have no way of knowing whether this is all a joke. On the surface, it looks great, but the person could be in massive debt, on bad terms with their significant other, and just desperate for Instagram likes as validation.

Social media has its advantages and disadvantages as well. Although some of the negative effects of social media have been discussed, only you can determine whether it is more beneficial for you personally.
