Therefore, they have yet another similar problem. Also, It’s an example of what gangs make you do. In addition, in “A Generation struggling” rich kids are more likely to buy and do drugs than others. With this in mind, we see the Socs in “The Outsiders” book mostly always drunk or smoking. Although, we see the Greasers smoking and drinking too, we don’t see it as much as with the Socs. All things considered, the Socs and the Greasers both have bad health choices.
We look hoody and they look decent. It could be just the other way around - half of the hoods I know are pretty decent guys underneath all that grease, and from what I've heard, a lot of Socs are just cold-blooded mean - but people usually go by looks.” The Socs were the rich kids who lived on the West Side, and were the rival gang of the Greasers. On the outside, the Socs appeared to the community to be well behaved. Most all of the Socs drove nice corvettes and wore nice clothing, like madra shirts. They seemed to get everything they wanted, but were described as being cool, to the point of not feeling any emotions. They would drive the streets of their community, getting drunk, and looking for fights with the Greasers. They commit crimes in the community, but get away with it because of their money. The Greasers always thought that the Socs had it better than them because of their nice cars, houses, and clothes, but they find out that the Socs have it just as rough as they do, because they have a lot of the same
We live in an era ruled by social media, primarily when it comes to teenagers, social media is used for everything. From communicating with family and friends to being used as a news outlet, and even advertisement for business and companies. This article is titled “Social Media: What's Not to Like,” written by Alison Pearce Stevens. The topic of this essay is the effect social media can have on teenagers. Social media, on one hand, can be used as a great way to share with the world and boost teens’ self-esteem. On the other hand, social media can be used as a place for bullying, body shaming and can cause depression or even suicide in teens.
I am a greaser because they stick together and don’t pick on other kids. Greasers may be poor but they stay as a family. The difference between greasers and socs is that the socs pick on greasers, they are rich, and they are very rude. The greasers, on the other hand, are nice, poor, and they try and hide from socs. The greasers have long hair that is greasy and they are the middle class. The socs are the upper class and they have really nice cars.
Older generations don’t realize how much technology has affected this generation of teenagers, along with the social media that comes along with the technology. As stated in “How Social Media Changed Teens’ Lives Forever”; “Negative posts or comments also can do great damage to a teen’s self-esteem.” (Ashley Black, Thomas Atseff and Colleen Kaveney) While many parents think social media is just a way to connect with others, many teenagers take it for granted. For example, “quitting social media because it made her miserable and obsessed with appearing perfect online”, is what a teenager felt about social media and what it has done to her. Though many think that social media is a great way to connect, teenagers take it to another level.
One reason social media can be harmful to teenagers is that it can distant you away from people around you. The text states, “ It may draw some teenagers away from having relations with themselves and people around them” This implies that social media can take over the lives of many people. Children need to have a good relationship with the people around them and not be glued to their cell phone all the time. They even need to have a relationship with themselves. There are other things in the world that are better and more entertaining than being on facebook.
Social media has been a topic of debate for years. Some people are strongly against any use of it while others like the instant connection it provides. A major concern over social media is the lasting effects it has on teenagers. Social media can affect teenagers through many ways including things like their self-esteem. Cyberbullying is a raging topic of discussion centered around teens social media use. It can also effect their people skills and create a lack of community involvement. Some parents think that watching what their children do on social media is an invasion of privacy but is your concern for their privacy greater than your concern for their safety? Social media poses a great danger to today’s children. It can affect many aspects of their lives.

The Socs are west side rich kids who basically can own almost everything.People think that Greasers are bad juvenile kids who always do bad things, but in reality they are just poor people that had to do bad stuff because they have to.
Social media influences a teenager's self-esteem because it can lower or boost their self-esteem. It can lower a teenager's self-esteem by having cyberbullies on the internet putting them down with their negative opinions of the teen which can also drive the teens to feel hurt, or discourgaed by letting others opinions get to them. Social media can boost a teenager’s self-esteem by having a lots of friends or followers, because they’ll feel cool and popular. It can also boost their self-esteem because if they post a selfie of themselves on social media and everybody is commenting on how pretty or how nice they look, they will feel
Social media has been known to help students develop important knowledge and social skills. “At first glance this may seem like a waste of time; however it also helps students to develop important knowledge and social skills, and be active citizens who create and share content.” (Chen 3). The more time teens spend on social media the more they become aware of their own social side and how to interact with others, especially their peers. “Some types of social media has beneficial effects, like helping adolescents establish some sense of identity and build networking skills” (Riley Davis). Too much time being spent on social media can also exploit teens to some harsh realities that they’ve probably never experienced in their lives before.
I’m going to be inventorying, identifying, describing, and looking. I’m going to start of with the author S.E Hinton, I noticed she went right into the story without any backstory or background i've noticed from discussions a lot people don’t like that she went straight into the story, I wanted to mention that because it was very disliked in many discussions. I also wanted to speak on what caused the rivalry between socs and greasers, there was a lot that S.E Hinton left out that many readers were wanting know. There are many examples of S.E Hinton not giving background, explaining, or even just stating something better. Don’t get me wrong all together the book was really good, there was just some things that could have been stated better
How much damage can a rivalry cause? This book is about two rival groups, the Socs and the greasers. It is also about how fear can push someone into murder, It is about not judging people by their looks. The greasers struggle more than the Socs because they are poorer, their family life is not the best, and the are not safe when they are alone. Being poor is sometimes the reason you always want to prove yourself or do certain things.
Social media is causing teenagers to be negatively influenced. This is an issue, because teenagers are extremely impressionable and social media is negatively impacting their lives each day whether they are conscious of this or not. One anonymous author who wrote the article, “Teen’s Use of Social Media: Positive or Negative?” states, “90 percent of teens have used social media” (Teens’ Use of Social Media). In this statement, it is clear that a large majority of teenagers have already been exposed to some type of social media. Since teenagers learn from direct observation and experience, it is a huge problem when they witness things on social media that concern sexist, racist, or homophobic content. Many teenagers even say that they have an addiction to social media. Teens who have had bad experiences online or who do not use social media on a regular basis said that they have a stronger urge to stay away from the internet. Even though there are many negatives to social media there are some positives as well. NickMcGillivray who is affiliated with the website, TurboFuture wrote the article, “What Are the Effects of Social Media on Youth.” In his article, he states, “There are many positive aspects, but there are equally as many dangers that come with the use of sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Google +, Tumblr, Instagram, gaming sites, and blogs” (McGillivray). In this statement, he makes it clear, that social media has both positives and negatives. One positive of social media that impacts teenager’s lives would be, how they are able to communicate with their teachers and other classmates at any time. This makes it easier for
Studies have shown that the average person now spends more time each day on their phone and computer than they do sleeping according to Nick McGillivray (“What are the Effects of Social Media on Youth?). Social has become part of our social society, especially for the many youths. There are positives to being on social media and also equal amounts of danger that come with using social networking sites, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. These social networking sites also have effects on today’s youth by altering the way they behave, the way they learn, in not only a classroom setting but also in the real world setting, and the way that they socialize with their peers and others.
