Social Media’s Affect on Teens

I believe that people who are under 16 should not be on social media.  As someone who made multiple social media accounts by the age of 13, I wish I had waited longer to get on social media. It has had a huge impact on my development. In both negative and positive ways. While social media can be helpful for young children, I believe that joining social media at a young age is more harmful than helpful. Joining at a really young can make kids more likely to be taken advantage of online.  As well as being emotionally and physically depressed. I know this firsthand because I, myself, have a problem with using social media. But what is the correct amount of time to use social media today? How much social media can one use before it becomes too much?
