When it comes to social media, there are a number of positive aspects. For instance, teens can keep up with friends who move away and make connections with others who have similar interests. They can even leverage social media to build a positive online reputation — one that colleges and prospective employers find impressive. But there are some negative aspects to social media.
As you become a teen, the way you build friendships will change. Whether you are introverted, recently moved to a new school, or are just learning how to communicate with others, it pays to build a few crucial skills. First and foremost, you need to choose compatible friends. Once you find people you would like to be friends with, you have to approach them and nurture the friendship.
