  • Books do not occupy much space like a computer or a laptop and can be carried everywhere.

With the growing influence and liking towards social media, it will surely become difficult to fill the room with books. A survey in UK showed that with the increasing age, the tendency to read a book decreases; the effect profoundly seen when comparison was made between three age groups - six to eight, 12-14 and 15-17 year old. There have been frowns from parents and many quarters of society towards the teen indulgence in FB, internet and other social media websites. They are not happy with the neglect of reading books. Thus it’s worthwhile to discuss on the thought that whether social media is killing the practice of reading books?
1. Social media is unproductive use of time as it only entertains you and gives no food for thought.

2. The amount of education you get from it is very less compared to reading books.

3. It hampers creativity as much of the time is spent on forwarding things to others.

4. Most of the time is spent in searching what others are doing, which can be well spent in reading which atleast adds knowledge to your own life.

5. Another prominent example can be the usage of 'new' abbreviations to express oneself on the social media. This hampers the language development which in turn affects writing and reading both.

6. Due to the fast changing content on such websites, the attention span of the readers has reduced. So an important habit of thinking over a thought, giving it time to percolate in your mind, is reduced to a great extent. This is one of the benefits of the book. Books cultivate the capacity to understand and think. 

7. Good reading habit makes way for a better understanding of one's experiences however social media mostly indulges the cravings of people rather than what is good for them.

8. The role models who the teens follow too are more active on the social media. Teens try to emulate them.
