Games, twitter, YouTube and other sociomedical have made the sleeping time of teenagers reduced. This is because, teens are very curious always and they try to figure out a lot of things on the internet. This is not matter of been curious only, but also, social media and games are very influential and addictive. This has made the teens not to have time to rest. Sleeping less can affect you negatively. When you do not have enough sleep, you will end up having a severe head ache.

- Eye Problems:
The use of Technology, has caused a lot of eye problems on the lives of teenagers today. Many are suffering from eye strain because of over usage of phones and laptops. The light rays of the phone or the light rays of the laptop, destroys the eye when you overuse. Here is the case, most of the teens don’t even sleep because of these gadgets. They don’t even sleep because of it. This affect the youth both mentally and physically.
- Unneeded relationships:
Most of the teenagers are dating about four or more people on the internet without even knowing them. What will happen when it ends up one leaving another? Is that not broken heart that he/she will get? This will affect the emotional life of that teenager.
- Waste of time:
Infact time wasting is one of the main points I will stand on. Technology gadget such as phone and laptop waste the time of today’s teenagers sometime. Instead of him/ her to do their daily routine, you will see them hanging around social media watching pictures and videos. This will make the work load of that teenager’s parent to be more than before.
