Social media is a boon. Or, is it a bane? Though it has its many benefits and uses, there are plenty of social media problems that trouble us. What are these social media issues? And how do we deal with them? One of the major complaints with social media is the amount of time it consumes. Here are some insights into the problems with social media and suggested solutions that may help you use the social media networking sites in the right way and keep a healthy work-life balance in this updated post. ~ Ed.

Social media is both, good and bad. It has actually changed our lives in many ways since its inception.

Like everything else, it too has its cons, which seem to get an upper hand over the pros. So, most people face social media problems sometime or the other.

Social media issues are inevitable; you just need to find ways to deal with it, isn’t it?

Let’s talk about the problems with social media that you or others might be facing. Hopefully, also find the social media solutions too.

First let me make it clear; social media is a great place to promote your views and meet new people, aid communication, and find new job prospects, besides the many other advantages. However, it can at times do more harm than good. I hope you agree.

I’m not skeptical or negative about social media; in fact, I use it immensely on a daily basis. However, let’s face the facts and accept its drawbacks.

Perhaps the biggest problems that people face is the amount of time they spend on the social media networks. However, ironically, this is essential nowadays if you want a strong social media presence. You can’t forget the impact of Social media signals that is essential for bloggers, writers, and other professionals, isn’t it?

The resulting lack of time directly or indirectly leads to other problems in life.

So what do we do?

“Social media is your opportunity to reach a massive number of people with transparency, honesty, and integrity.” ~ Brian E. Boyd Sr.

Let’s move ahead and try to find the solutions to social media problems and make a combined effort to help those who in need in this regard.

I would be mainly talking about the social networking sites and the problems people face. If you have any such issues, come over and share it in the comments.


Types of Social Media Problems Today

Social media has many benefits; the social media sites are great places to build connections, for personal and professional work. But here we want to focus on the problems with social media.

Besides the usual problems with social media you face, especially on the social networking sites, there are a few other social media issues like –

  • Plagiarism Issues in Social Media
  • Social Media Legal and Ethical Problems
  • Marketing Problems in Social Media

However, I’d not go into more details about the other kinds of problems with social media, but concentrate on the ones that affect most of us commonly – social networking site problems.

“Social media spark a revelation that we, the people, have a voice, and through the democratization of content and ideas we can once again unite around common passions, inspire movements, and ignite change.” ~ Brian Solis

20 Social Media Problems in Society and Their Solutions

These 20 social media problems and solutions aren’t the only issues people face. But they are the most common social media problems with their possible solutions.

Spending Too Much Time on Social Media

Problem: As you have accounts on many social networking sites, do you spend time visiting each one too often?

Solution – Yes! I know I do, but you need to find ways to overcome this issue. So, the ONLY thing that works on such social networking sites is limiting your time and running off!!

Believe me, nothing else really works – tried and tested!

Social networking can be addictive and overwhelming at the same time. You need to learn to filter out the ‘noise’ to find something specific.


Getting Addicted to Social Media

Problem: Do you get so lost in your social media networks that you can’t function if you aren’t connected the online world? You feel lost, isolated, and become dependent, which can be dangerous.

Solution – I agree that people need a strong social media presence nowadays, and if you aren’t online the main social networking sites, you’re missing out on a LOT, but you need to know how to handle it all.

Don’t become dependent on such sites. Instead, find yourself some offline hobbies, friends, and ways to recreate so that you don’t become addicted to the Internet.

The Update Syndrome

Problem: Do you keep updating your status and remain busy reading the updates of others?

Solution – Chalk out a schedule and how much time you want to spend on such sites, visit them, share your update, quickly go through your notifications and messages, and move away.

The more you stay and check out what others have shared, or see the invitation to play games, or visit unnecessary pages, the more time you waste.

Neglecting Family and Responsibilities

Problem: As you are online 24×7, are you neglecting your family, kids, siblings and friends?

Solution – Family and your relationships should always come first, and this is a reminder for me too! Thus when you need to be with them, you need to move away from the social media.

Don’t allow social media to interfere with your daily chores, responsibilities, nor your relationships with your family, friends, parents, kids, and spouse. Take out time for it, and move away after that!

“Social networking platforms drove man closer to those in neighboring continents, while driving him further apart from those in his neighborhood.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Dependence on Online Friends

Problem: Do you spend lots of time interacting with friends or strangers online to make new friends? As you are so used to working behind the scenes, perhaps when you meet offline people, do you feel awkward in conversing with them?

Solution – You need to ask yourself does online friendship really work. Yes, and no – just as the link to this post describes, do read the interesting conversation that goes on about it in the post. 🙂

It all depends on how you build relationships with your online friends. Check their profiles before making friends with them, another point most people forget to do.

Also, don’t entirely depend or only have online friends. Move out and meet offline friends and be with them, so that the awkwardness doesn’t remain.

Managing Social Media Time

Problem: Get too many messages, notifications, tags that you find it tough to cope with once you are on these social media networks.

Solution – I deal with this issue every single day! You just need to ignore them if they come in huge numbers, or if you feel they are important – take them up by visiting your account once a day.

Choose a time for your preferred social networking site to visit and reply to all the notifications, but don’t get stuck there. End it up within a set time period – and move away!

Wasting Time on Social Media

Problem: Some people bore you and you don’t like to interact with them, yet you do because you are being polite. So do you waste time in talking to those who don’t matter to you over issues?

Solution – If you are on the social networks just to waste time, you can never get anything worthwhile done. In case you have to deal with people who bore you, and you are one of the polite ones, you need to change!

After one or two replies, excuse yourself from the conversation and get away. If you continue talking, they will continue asking or talking. So, the choice is always in your hand.

Reducing Attention Span

Problem: Do you face short attention spans because of the time you spend on social networking sites – making it tough to cope with ALL the information because there is so much to read and learn and so little time?

Solution – If you find your attention span shortening over the years – that’s perhaps due to the time spent online gathering or reading the vast information at a faster rate, as compared to earlier.

Keep taking frequent breaks when you work online. Your mind and body, including the overworked brain, need a BREAK! Chalk out a time for social media and the Internet, instead of being online all the time.

“Distracted from distraction by distraction.” ~ T.S. Eliot

Lack of Focus and Productivity

Problem: Do you lack focus and think your productivity is taking a back seat due to these social media sites?

Solution – When you are forever online working and visiting several social media and social networking websites in day, you tire your brain and lack the attention and focus.

Yes, if you have the free time, these social networks are good, or else, they can reduce your efficiency and productivity, besides harming your entire days work and routine.

Thus, time yourself and remain focused in what you need to do first – everything else can come up later. Setting your priorities is essential, which ensures you only work to achieve your target.

The FOMO Syndrome

Problem: Perhaps you always want to listen to what everyone has to say, all the time. That’s called FOMO (fear of missing out), which makes you anxious and crazy. So, are you online and on these social media networks always?

Solution – You need to break this bad habit of being online ALL the time, as I know some of my blogging friends face this issue.

Just set a timer or go by the watch, and get away as soon as your time is up. I know it’s tough, but if you are determined, you can easily do it, just as I’ve learnt to do.

So, you hardly see me on Facebook and Twitter, except for the short time that I am online. 🙂

Remember, if you want to achieve something – you need to be very focused, or else it doesn’t work.

Wasting Time Playing Games

Problem: Do you waste time playing online games like Angry Birds, Zynga Poker, Facebook Scrabble etc, which are present on such social networking sites? Or do people tag and invite you to play such games?

Solution – I get a LOT of such invitations to play online games. But I just do one thing – IGNORE such notifications! Sorry for doing that – but I don’t have the time to waste in playing games!

If you are free, by all means play such games and invite those who might like playing too. But don’t tag, bother, or trouble those you know wouldn’t be keen.

You can also check the settings of your account to stop getting the notifications for such games or apps, if you look it up.

Seeking Validation

Problem: Do you spend time clicking your pictures and sharing it on the social media and seeing what others share, or comment on them?

Solution – You need to remember that all that you share on the social networks becomes public. So, be careful when you click your pictures and share them.

Or you can adjust the settings to share them with a group of close friends and family, though it’s better to email them or share it through other sites like Picasa etc., rather than social networking sites, where they can still be traced.

Besides, clicking your pictures, uploading the, and sharing it all over becomes an addiction, especially with young tweens and teens. Parents need to be careful because people can misuse such pictures too.

Relationship Issues due to Social Media

Problem: Do you feel your relationship is breaking up or broke up due to the amount you spent on these social network sites?

Solution – Talking of relationship issues – who doesn’t have them? But if you have problems with your partner because either of them is online for a long period, you need to make amends there.

Chalk out a fixed time when you are online or working, after which, devote time with your spouse or partner. They also need your undivided attention.

More the time you spend with them, better your relationship becomes.

Infidelity on Social Media

Problem: Some people use such sites to hook up or indulge into extra-marital activities. Have you faced such issues where there are problems in your relationship or marriage?

Solution – Be online for your work and get away soon after that, just as I’ve been saying all along. If you have issues in your marriage – resolve them. Running to social media and finding others there is not the way!

Better still, share your social media account profile with your spouse – no harm. This only builds the trust and they are sure of your activities. Otherwise, some people spend most of their time to find ways to catch a cheating spouse online.

Remember, anything outside your marriage is lust, and not love, just as I mentioned in my earlier post.

Disturbing Privacy Issues

Problem: Have you had privacy issues while being online these social networking sites?

Solution – Online privacy is a serious issue, especially for kids, tweens and teens – so parents need to be very careful about spending time and teaching their kids about the pros and cons of social networking sites.

You need to keep a watch on the sites your kids are operating or opening and teach them the right from the wrong.

Even for adults, you need to be very careful about sharing your personal information online and your details too.

Falling for Fake Identities

Problem: Was your account banned or hacked? Have you come across people with fake accounts and false identities?

Solution – You cannot say who the other person behind the screen really is or what his or her intention is. So be aware of such fake accounts and identities by checking out their profiles in detail.

Change your setting so that not everyone can read and know about you, till they are your friends. Things like your hobbies, birthdays, address, likes, dislikes, and other details needn’t be shared till required.

Cyber crime is something everyone needs to be careful about.

Getting Duped on Social Media

Problem: Have you come across scammers on social networking sites who trick you to download malicious software or visit certain sites?

Solution – Beware of hackers and spammers! They often send links that can harm your computer, and once that gets infected; they can use your contacts to spread the malware further.

Don’t open any link that you feel suspicious about or if it’s from some unknown person, whether in your email or your social media accounts.

Health Issues due to Social Media

Problem: Do you face health issues, like sleep deprivation due to being on the social networks till late night? Even your teens could be busy texting or surfing online, are you aware?

Solution – When you are always online, your health will suffer. Lack of sleep is an issue I deal with and the side effects are not good as they affect you, and your next days working.

Remember, your body needs at least 7-8 hours of sleep, so time your work and limit your online activities. Look after your health because that is your greatest wealth.

Your kids will follow you, so limit to the amount you allow them online. I’m glad we do that, so things are in control.

Negative Impact on Academics

Problem: Do your kids spend endless hours online, especially on social media networking sites, which affects their studies and results in low academic grades?

Solution – Studies indicate a fall in grades in students who spend endless hours on the social networking sites. Parents need to keep a check and allow them enough time to interact and work online if need be.

Not to mention that unlimited access has various drawbacks, which I’ll take up in a future post. 🙂

Dangers of Cyber Crime and Bullying

Problem: Are your kids facing social media problems? Perhaps stalking, cyber bullying and such things have occurred with them or their profiles – how did you handle that?

Solution – When you allow your kids to be online, you need to keep a check on their social media profiles and educate them to use it the right way too. Sit with them and guide them on how to open an account.

Not to mention all that they are allowed to reveal about their personal self on such sites. Anything written – becomes public, so be aware of cyber bullies, texting, and stalkers.

You might like to read this post – Are Your Teens Cyber Safe – a very important post for ALL parents. If things get out of hand, limiting the screen time also helps.

I’m sure you can relate with these issues, isn’t it? I know I can, though with time I’ve learnt how to handle these problems with social media. So, do you face any of these social media issues?

“Now we have so many more social outlets, so many ways to be stalked and bullied. If social media is too much for you to handle, then don’t have a Twitter or Facebook account. Just be yourself. Be who you want to be.” ~ Khloe Kardashian

Wrapping It Up

As for the negative impacts mentioned above, I think when you know the social media problems; you also know the solutions to such problems, don’t you?

Such social media networks are great place to be on, especially if you work from home as you get to make so many new friends. More so, it’s a good way to use them for social causes, and also take a break from work!

Speaking of which, I know I’ve met all my blogging friends by visiting and blog commenting and social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

Besides, there are many other friends I’ve met on these social network sites who don’t visit my blog, but love to connect, talk, message, or just read my posts. So they too are listed as your online friends.

All of the above doesn’t mean you go ahead and delete your social media accounts! It’s just that you need to know how to use them, and how much time you need to spend on them. 🙂

If you can control the time you spend on the social media sites, and not let them control you, you can maintain a good work-life balance.

“Social networks aren’t about Web sites. They’re about experiences.” ~ Mike DiLorenzo

I hope by talking about the above-mentioned social media issues, I’ve managed to help you pin-point your problems. Remember, everything has a solution if you are ready.

So, get away from your social media networks if you find it overwhelming and take a break. 🙂

“Social media demands a lot of us on top of our already demanding lives. So let’s disconnect as we need to and renew our interest and ourselves.” ~ Simon Mainwaring

  1. I’m trying to minimize my screen time, but even after uninstalling apps, I couldn’t stop myself from using the apps from the web version. Now, I feel how social media can harm our minds.

  2. Hi Harleena you’re definitely right about social media
    Its time to bring change.
    Nice share Thank you

  3. All the issues you talk about are worth concerning. New generation spending too much time on social media which is taking them away from the their family. Now a days, only thing that matters for teenagers is their social media influence. We need better controlled social medias.

  4. its take me very long time to read your whole blog but its quite impressive and helpful .. as all of us know that technology helps a lot but it’s destroys also if we are not using it a good way .. so its upon us .. btw thaks for sharing

  5. Yesterday I had something happen that made me realize a major issue in my life. My grandson got his drivers permit and acually “called” me to tell me. Being elderly and feeling the “I am a white elephant” syndrome of late, this call made tears come to my eyes as he told me. He actually loves me enough to HEAR my reaction to wonderful news! At the same moment of his calling me his stepmom was posting a photo of him and announcing it to the world. When you are family, immediate family, sometimes it’s just nice to know you have loving privledges the world does not have, like having milestone news shared with person to person interaction over being told as part of a crowd of people that may or may not KNOW that family member. We all need to feel special in our loved ones lives and social media mega posts, really rip that right off the table, you are just another name in the crowd. I don’t think this is just the elderly who have felt this let down but I know it is a very common causing factor in depession among grandparents and older family members.

  6. Hello Harleena,
    Thanks for sharing great post with us. So informative post about social media. First of all i’d like to appreciate you on your clean blog design. Social media is a boon, if we use it in proper way, as you mentioned. If not it is curse.
    As a blogger, i’d like to say that social media helps me a lot to work on blog, understand new things, get connected with other bloggers.
    So it break downs to one final question: how much effective we are on social media?
    Thanks again for the deep information, keep writing!

  7. Hi Harleena, insightful post about social media.

    Social media is a two edged sword which can be used to make money, build your brand and grow your online reputation. On the other hand, it can kill your precious time, damage your reputation or make an internet troll. So it depends on how you use your time on social media.
    Thanks for the great post Harleena, keep rocking.

  8. Well these are priceless pointers to overcome social media addiction. Many fake profiles exist on almost every social platform and unfortunately they are duping unsuspecting users in all parts of the world.

    Sleep deprivation is another problem which is connected to social media but unfortunately most people fail to realise it. Thanks for highlighting these drawbacks of social media along with solutions to deal with them. I hope this post reaches as many people as possible.

  9. Social media has become a place where people come to show their short term happiness. This short term happiness reflects the major amount of life on social media which creates insecurity in others mind and make them depressed. all the points you wrote have resonated with me and i will make sure that i follow the steps that you have said. Thank you for sharing the article.

  11. Hi Harleena, insightful post about social media.

    Social media is a two edged sword which can be used to make money, build your brand and grow your online reputation. On the other hand, it can kill your precious time, damage your reputation or make an internet troll. So it depends on how you use your time on social media.

    As a blogger, I can say it it’s really useful if you limit your time on spending on social media and you can network with other bloggers on sites like Facebook and twitter. You can also use social media to promote your blog posts to get more traffic to your sites.

    So it really comes down to one thing: how effectively you’re managing your time on social media. Are you using it for wasting time or using it productively to network with other bloggers and use it to grow your online reputation.

    Coming to your question: I never faced any issues with social media because I rarely spend time on it. I’m active on sites like twitter though but I use it connect with other bloggers and promote my blog posts.

    Thanks for the great post Harleena, keep rocking.

  12. Hello Harleena Mam,

    This is my first comment on your blog. I love this post as it is very informative and have facts that resonate with our lives. Social Media is definitely important as we have to adapt ourselves with latest technology. Social Media sites are great place to connect with people online. But I think a self control and consciousness is very important to analyze what is right and what is Wrong? I am also using Social Media sites a lot but I always keep a balance between social sites and my daily life. Thanks for sharing these great insights.

    Have a Great Weekend 🙂

  13. Hi Harleena, you made some excellent points here! I try to keep my social sites shut down while I’m doing other work. As you say it is hard to focus if you see notifications coming up and dinging you.
    That was something I had trouble with when I started my blogging journey. I would be going back and forth all the time and not getting much writing done!
    I think it can make people feel anxious especially if you manage social media for others, etc. You wonder why isn’t that great post working and why is no one engaging on that one, etc.
    I love leaving my phone at home once in a while or going out for a walk with the ringer off. You have to unplug from time to time to not get yourself overwhelmed.
    Thanks for your tips and tricks here Harleena 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

  14. Too much of anything is bad for you and social media is among one of the most toxic things in our lives today.

    Although many livelihoods depend on it the number of bad elements avaiable online certainly makes us think.

    Awesome article. Keep up the good work 🙂

  15. Hi,

    There are both advantages and disadvantages of using social media. I love to see how much people are interacting. Same to Facebook, the engagement is way of the mark.

    Facebook has many interesting features as well as irritating features. Among them I feel very irritating with tags. Yeah, I admire tagging is good to mention someone. But we can see on Facebook, there are many peoples who randomly tag friends without any reasons. So I feel that really disgusting. Though I’ve managed to handle it by changing tagging policy for my account.

  16. Social media has that kind of magical attraction which couldn’t be denied. With its powers properly utilised and effectively managed, one can reap the benefits of growing your brand extensively and reaching out to an immense number of people. Thanks for this awesome post!

  17. Gosh! It’s the number seven “Some people bore you and you don’t like to interact with them, yet you do because you ar being polite. So do you waste time in talking to those who don’t matter to you over issues?”.
    There are lots of people whome ain’t there to add to you, alot of times i fall into a discussion with them just quiting won’t look nice to me so i just waste alot of time chatting with them, nice one here, hopefilly, I’ll start quiting irrilevant chat.

  18. I have a love/hate relationship with social media. There is too much of it, but I like interacting with others. I sometimes get so sick of things that I just ignore is all completely, but then, when I return to it, I have to get caught up. It’s never a win-win situation. 🙁

    I’m actually considering writing a post on how much I hate it.

    1. Hi Lorraine,

      I can understand that kind of feeling, and it does become overwhelming for some of us if we are online all the time, whether working or interacting with others. Yes, I tried that once or twice too when I’d made up my mind to just switch-off, but when I returned, there were numerous notifications, messages, tags, and loads of comments to take care of the next few days.

      I guess striking a balance is tough, but if you want to avoid such social media problems you need to work your way about and see what fits in best with your schedule, isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us 🙂

    2. I don’t know if this will help with your love/hate relationship, but something I learned is that limiting my amount of time on social media is very beneficial to my health. I just designate thirty minutes here or there for time to interact on it and then I get off it. It is very easy to focus on it and spend so much time on it.

      Doing this also helps me not waste so much time.

  19. Hey Harleena,

    Wow, what a detailed post and it sounds like there are a lot of people now have issues with social media. I’m really not surprised because I hear this a lot from people who find that time has gotten away with them and the next thing you know the day is gone.

    Of course I don’t have this issue and I never really have because as you know I’m pretty organized. I think for most it should boil down to their priorities although it’s pretty obvious that people can definitely get carried away “chatting” with others online.

    I would hate to start all over today just now coming online to build up my profiles. I mean it does take time to reach out and make those connections so I can see where people can easily lose track of time if they haven’t specifically set some kind of time limit on that.

    I’m just glad I don’t have kids and have to worry about what they’re viewing, who they’re connecting with and privacy issues. They would probably hate me I’m sure because I would lock them out.

    You’ve really covered some key points here and I hope those who have had some issues have found it very helpful. As always, thanks for sharing.


    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Glad you liked the post, and yes, there are SO many people who have such social media problems, though I know a lot more could be added to the list – but perhaps if we can handle these many, it’s good enough as a start 🙂

      Oh yes…you plan to spend a few minutes or an hour and you land up staying up much longer than you expect, only to realize the amount of precious time you’ve really wasted.

      I know how well organized you are and you truly work by the clock, don’t you? Perhaps one day you should write a post on time-management and how you manage your time so well in doing so much within the limited hours.

      Priorities should always come first, and later, once your task in hand is over, you can spend your time chatting or being on the social networking sites doing what you like. At least you have a free heart and mind to do that then!

      Yes indeed, you are lucky here with no kids to take care of because if you are a parent, your kids surely need guidance all along and need to be educated on how to use the social networks the right way. More so, you need to be a role model to your kids because they see ALL that you do. Luckily for us, our kids know they have only limited access to the Internet so do all that they want within that time frame and then back to their studies. They also know we know where all they are going, so keeping track is easy that ways for us.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Have a nice day ahead 🙂

  20. Hey Harleena,

    This was a much needed subject to go over. There’s a lot of addictions out there, and social media falls on the top. To be honest with you, I thought I was bad since I’m on social media like facebook for about an hour a day at the most. The site I spend the most on is YouTube since I can also watch movies and learn some piano chords. But as you probably already know, I have some extracurricular activities I engage in and sometimes I hang out with friends.

    Can you remember what we were doing before social media? I can remember some of the best times of my life was playing outside as a kid. Although I had Nintendo and Atari, I made time to play with friends. If I didn’t make time, my grandma use to make time for me LOL. But she saw early on the effect of just staying inside playing games and watching TV all day.

    But yes, I do believe that social media can be addicting! It’s just amazing how much an hour can go by while you’re on social media, whether you’re on your computer or on your smart phone. I like the idea of SYPS and how you’re making your blog more of a community. I think it’s better to set it up like this because you can definitely meet people that’s going through the same things you’re going through. On top of that, whenever you overcome a problem, you can celebrate it with others that have been supporting you!

    Thanks for sharing Harleena, and you have a great day!

    1. Hi Sherman,

      It sure was as I see so many people online, ALL the time and most of them are just wasting time and doing nothing productive. I don’t think spending an hour online is bad, I need to do that myself and perhaps they say 80% is promotion of your blog, while 20% is writing it, so how else does one do it, if not online such social media sites.

      However, what matters is that we learn to limit our time online – do our work, and move away. That’s where most people get caught. I was there too once when I started long back, so I know the effect it has on you and your work.

      Ah…YouTube is one place I rarely visit, except when I have to look up a video for my post or someone puts up a video post, but it’s certainly a great place to get lost, again never ending source of information. Yes, and I love those activities you engage in too 😉

      That’s already a post idea on my mind since long and I would surely write about it one day – life without the social media! Yes, those were in-fact the best days of my life too – totally carefree with no strings attached. We would be more with our families and friends – at least much more bonding was there as compared to what it’s become now. I think nowadays we are just SO dependent on the social media, Internet, mobiles, and a lot of other tech stuff that leaving any one out makes you anxious, isn’t it?

      Social networking sites are an addiction if we can’t manage our time on them. Yes, social media on the whole is a great source of information, but you need to set limits to the amount of time you want to spend on it and not let it rule your life.

      I started with these SYPS 3-4 months back and I wanted it to be a platform free and open for everyone who faces problems, to come forth and share their issues, related to the talked of subject, and anyone coming up to answer the questions people had. But I soon learnt that I was the only one replying to people here too…lol…but that’s alright. I know those who have similar problems might like these solutions.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Have a nice day as well 🙂

  21. Harleena,

    I just love what you are doing for people! Social media is a big problem for folks. Recently I had my family over and wherever we went, from the beach to a restaurant, all the young adults were on their phones.

    I told them to leave the phones home when we were going out. Oh they protested! They may miss a tweet, an important message, etc. But I told them that when family is together we must focus on one another or else, stay home.

    What a great experiment! By the third day, they were noticing clouds in the sky like a little child would do. At dinner we all focused on one another and had such a good time. As we browsed around little shops, they were so focused and excited.

    When we got back home, they rushed to their computers and phones. Came to find out, nothing was more important than the experience they had shared. Mission accomplished. By the fifth day, they didn’t need to be reminded. In fact, they enjoyed their time without social media.

    Now, the only way I could have done this experiment is because I do discipline myself to turn things off! A long time ago I found myself hanging out too much on social media and had to put a stop to it.

    Now I follow my DMO (Daily Method of Operation) whereby I do what I need to first, then spend 10 minutes three times a day on Social Media.

    And guess what? The world didn’t end he he he!


    1. Hi Donna,

      Thank you so much for saying that, though I know so much more can be done – just wish had more hands and hours in a day at times to help out 🙂

      That’s such wise advice – especially to the younger lots, something every family must focus on because family time means – no Internet, no mobiles, no work – nothing at all. I know I am SO guilty of all of these things, but it’s one decision I’ve finally made never to do when I go on a vacation. Certain things can take a back seat, it doesn’t really matter, especially when you are bonding with your loved ones, isn’t it?

      I agree with you, there is SO much more to life than being online and such social media networks, which only one can see and notice when you leave it all and shift your focus on other things. I’m sure when they returned and checked on their accounts, they wouldn’t have been missed, just an odd message here or there.

      People need to realize this that if they spend family time and don’t update their status or tweet for a few days, the world won’t stop! Everyone’s so busy in their own lives to hardly notice your absence, unless you are a real icon or something like that.

      I love your DMO and it’s something that I do too, but my time online is twice a day and for a longer period of half to one hour each time because I share my posts on various groups and communities and I do take out time to thank each one of those people who like or comment on my posts, on the various networks. But once I do that, I just move away, or else I start getting tons of more messages from bloggers asking for help or wanting me to comment of like their posts.

      Thanks for your lovely comment that’s surely added value to the post, and I’m sure the younger lots would learn a lot from what you mentioned here. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  22. Hi Harleena
    Here you again come up with a fabulous article. yes While using internet and social media websites we face so many problems to distract the user. All the common problems with their solution you have mentioned above will help lots of peoples to get rid from these type of problems.
    Thanks for sharing.
    keep posting.

    1. Hi Addison,

      Glad you liked the post 🙂

      Absolutely! There are as a tis lots of distractions one faces in the day, and being online, especially the social networking sites does become distracting if one isn’t able to manage the time. I know most of us face these issues, so I just hope this post on social media problems and solutions helps those who need this information.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views with us 🙂

      BTW – If possible, it would be nice if you would use a Gravatar so that we know who we are talking to – just a friendly suggestion 🙂

  23. Hi Harleena,

    You have explained this topic in a good way but I want to ask you something which doesn’t belong to this topic. May I know why people don’t want to index their sitemap in any search engine? What Is the reason behind it? I have searched at many blogs but didn’t get the answer. I hope you can tell me.
    I will wait for your reply.

    1. Welcome to my blog Rakesh!

      Although I don’t answer off topic questions, but as you asked, I’d tell you frankly that I don’t have much of an idea as to why people don’t want to index their sitemap in the search engines. I guess the logical reasons are to avoid getting their site pages from being indexed, keeping them private, and not willing to share the information with the world. Many membership sites do that and perhaps those who run secret businesses running on their sites, who are not bothered with rankings and have no desire of getting organic traffic.

      I’m sure you’ll find better answers if you Google your question- what place to find the answers to your questions than a search engine! However, you’re more than welcome to ask questions here related to this post’s topic.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead. 🙂

      BTW – It would be nice if you would use a Gravatar so that we know who we are talking to – just a friendly suggestion 🙂

  24. I think I strike a good balance. Of course, that is because I have help. But my day job is worth much more of my time, so I can hire out help with SM. Anyhow, I can do more than I am doing but hopefully my new hire will be just the ticket I need to building a better online presence!

    1. Hi Jodi,

      Good to know that you have help and things are manageable for you, and I wish everyone was able to do that too 🙂

      But for those who are dealing with many social media accounts all alone, it can become rather overwhelming to be all over and do it all. I guess with your day job, you certainly need additional help and I’m sure that would help you build a stronger online presence too.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us 🙂

  25. Yes Harleena, these all are common problems that we have faced time to time. I am glad to read all the question and answers about social media. Yes, it is addictive but you have suggested the best way to deal with all these problems. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. Welcome to my blog Allison!

      Glad you agree with this list, though I know there’s a lot more we could add to it, but perhaps these are the common ones, aren’t they? Social media sites can be very addictive, but a lot depends on us and how we find ways to manage our time we spend on them, isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views with us 🙂

  26. Hi Harleena,

    Interesting topic for discussion!
    Well, until now I don’t have a problem with social media. I’m the kind of person who does not like asking for trouble, especially in social media. I think, foolish if we use social media to insult others. Instead, I prefer to use it to share useful knowledge 🙂

    For my health, I am aware of my own health. Health is a great gift and I will not waste it, right?

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Harleena.
    Nice share!


    1. Hi Nanda,

      I think you are one of the lucky lots! It’s tough nowadays to keep away from the social media sites, especially the networking sites because there is so much happening there, and as you can see from the feedback from a few commenters, managing their time online such sites is an uphill task.

      Yes indeed, if social media is used the right way, to gain and share information and knowledge, there can be nothing better, or else it can have an adverse effect. I agree about the health part too, and that should be on our priority list as well.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us. 🙂

  27. Quite good case study. I personally think that everything regarding social media is simply – common sense, consistency and to be be social.

    1. Welcome to my blog Kaloyan!

      Glad you liked this post on the various social media problems most of us face. I agree with you, but for some people it isn’t as simple as that as once they start social networking, it’s tough for them to keep track of time or manage things.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views 🙂

  28. Yes,there are lots of problem regarding social media sites like mental depression,break up,harmful for study,illegal activity even to loose your job but using it effectively can also bring you lots of happiness,popularity,money and many more.So like every other things there must be some positive and negative aspects but it totally depends upon you,how you’re going to use it.

    1. Hi Deparpan,

      I agree with you – there are a lot of pros and cons of social media, just as you mentioned. If used wisely and in a well-balanced way, social networking sites and the social media can work in your favor, or else result in lack of productivity due to wastage of time.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views with us 🙂

      1. The pleasure is always mine to launch here and go through your awesome posts with the wonderful writing skills of your’s Harleena Mam 🙂

  29. Harleena, get on and off social sites fast! Love the tips. I limit time on each site to dissolve attachments. I boost my effectiveness by blogging, socializing and doing all online stuff against the clock.

    1. Hi Ryan,

      Oh yes…that’s the only one that works perfectly for me too, just like for you. I guess limiting your time on doing your work and moving on to the next task is the key, without really wasting it on anything else.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views 🙂

  30. Nicely put Harleena.

    You are right on all aspects of the issues of social media. Things are changing rapidly and this requires one to change with it or face the consequences. No matter what you are doing, be it blogging, or online surfing, letting your children play games -changes are coming thick and thin. I like the way you have mentioned the issues and its solutions. You have covered most of it. I find the whole social media overwhelming and mind boggling sometimes.

    1. Hi Shalu,

      Glad you liked these social media problems and solutions, though I know there’s a lot more you can add to this list 🙂

      Things and even times have changed, and with so many people online, besides the safety and privacy issues, you just need to find your quiet time away or else you can just get so caught in it all, isn’t it? Kids are the ones who are at the maximum danger, if they are not guided well enough and I think every parent needs to pay attention to this fact. Yes, social media can be overwhelming, especially for those who are online ALL the time.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views with us 🙂

  31. Is #12 actually a “problem”? (12 – Do you spend time clicking your pictures and sharing it on the social media and seeing what others share, or comment on them?) I thought that is what social media was sort of for no?

    1. Welcome to my blog Troy!

      Lol…I wish that was the case, but you need to be very careful about what all you share on social networking sites. Anything you share goes public, especially your pictures, which could be misused by anyone. I’m sure you’d love the video that explains this point further – check it out!

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us 🙂

  32. Hi Ma’am!

    According to me, social media site are what making us less social in real life. Now a days, everyone use to spend their most time on social networking sites. Sometimes it seems total wastage of time so I like to schedule things. I spend some good time on Facebook and Twitter. Yes I have an account on so many sites but I use them only for profession purposes.An you know the only time I feel relaxed, when there is power-cut in my area and I loss push myself out of home.

    1. Hi Tejwinder,

      Yes, to a certain extent they are because we don’t know how to limit our time online 🙂

      I see many youngsters spend hours on such social networking sites and waste their time and life, whereas this is the time they need to concentrate and focus on their career, isn’t it?

      Scheduling the time you spend on each social media site is the only way things work, and like you, even I do that as I visit my various accounts, and if some work comes up, I have no problems even skipping a day or two of visiting such sites. They are not the start and end of it all, and there are a lot of things that are more important in life. Lol…yes, I can imagine the relaxed feeling when there is no power or when we aren’t connected to the online world 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us 🙂

  33. Hi Harleena
    You may already have an online presence. You may worry time spent on social media will distract your team from other important things. Your website needs SEO, for example. Tamara Weintraub, content marketing manager at ReachLocal, says there is no reason you can’t have both.

    1. Hi John,

      I agree with you, and yes, if you have work and need a strong online presence, you certainly need the power of social media. However, if you cannot manage the amount of time you spend on the social networking sites or other such places, it can result in lack of focus and productivity, isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views with us 🙂

      BTW – It would be nice if you can get a Gravatar so that we know who we are talking to – just a friendly suggestion 🙂

      1. Hi Harleena
        Thanks for your suggestion.I also Recommend that,but i am unable to do that in my weebly account.Can You please help me out???

  34. Hi Harleena!

    Wow! You covered so much in this post. I agree that all of these can be a huge issue for many of us. I’m happy to say I believe I have most of it handled but need to constantly monitor myself to make sure I don’t get suck into the game of it. It’s like very rich candy that needs to be eaten in moderation. Luckily I have pretty good self-discipline so I catch myself when I’m getting a little too attached. And even reading posts like this help because they remind me of how NOT to be.

    Thank you again for another great post. ~Kathy

    1. Hi Kathy,

      Yes, I tried to, but I’m sure there’s lot more one could add 🙂

      Good to know that, something we all need to do as well – monitor the time we spend on such social networking sites. More so, it’s always a never ending process if you don’t know how to limit yourself on such sites. Lol…I liked your example of eating the rich candy, but in moderation. I think you are already doing things the right way, and such reminders only assure you that you are on the right path.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us 🙂

  35. Hi Harleena

    I usually forget about going on to social media and not sharing as much as I should. Like you say one can spend far too much time on there. Now I don’t feel so guilty about ignoring it.

    Some family members share far too much on Facebook and for that reason I am not connected to them. Being careful about the friends you have also matters. They maybe fine but it tells a lot about you if their profile picture is raunchy.

    Anybody wanting a job should be very careful what they share on these sites. If I was looking to hire someone for an offline job, I would check out their social media site. You don’t have to be connected to them or even let them know you are checking them out. Bad language, bad relationships, etc. gets put on these sites. Funny that they let the whole world see who they are but not their own family, yet don’t they realize we can see what they say unless they have it private? It amazes me how stupid some smart people can be.

    I personally am very vague on social media sites for that very reason. I am still pretty private on my site and even in comments as I feel that certain things should remain private. Sharing to a point is fine, but on the social media they (the weirdos)can find you, where as to find you on the websites and trace your life would require much more work that they would probably never do. Even so one should never be an open book anywhere on the network. Honesty has nothing to do with telling everything about yourself. There are somethings that never or ever needs to be shared.

    Some very good points on the subject.


    1. Hi Mary,

      I think you are in real bliss if you do that! Honestly speaking, I wish I could just vanish from the social media at times, not because I spend a lot of time there, but because of the endless tags, notifications, and messages that I receive. Yes, ignoring them is one option I haven’t yet chosen, but if things become overwhelming, I might have to cut-off 🙂

      Absolutely! Sharing more than required or putting up pictures where you or your family members might be there, something that you don’t like – can often lead to problems and misunderstandings. We need to be SO careful about our profiles and all that we share because everything you share becomes public, even though you might hide it from your timeline.

      I agree with you about the jobs too, good point indeed. If people know the kind of person you are on these social networking sites, they might just change their mind of hiring you. Besides, even those who are looking for a suitable match to get married should be very careful about their social media profiles as those are always the first to be seen – I’ve seen many youngsters suffer due to all that they share on their profiles thinking it’s limited to their family and close friends, which isn’t the case.

      That’s how it should be I would say, and comment only where need be or when it’s with a group of close friends, which again depends if you are in the same time zone and online at the same time. Because we need to make our profiles public, being professionals, we need to tweak it and have only the relevant matter online, without adding your birth dates, address, your family or other relations, town or city you reside in as all these can become a problem for those who want to trace you, nor is there any need I would add.

      Thanks for stopping by and adding more value to the post 🙂

  36. Hi Harleena, I love this format where you crowd source solutions to people’s problems. A problem shared is a problem halved, as you said in your first article in this series!

    You’re right, Social Media certainly can cause problems and you’ve done a wonderful job of explaining what those are. Social Media is a tool and like any tool it must be used properly.

    I have been very fortunate not to have issues with Social Media. I have reconnected with many friends using Social Media and made some new ones. But I also recognize the importance of treating Social Media with respect and not going overboard with it.

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      Glad you liked it and that was the aim of these series so that people can share their problems and find solutions. Yes indeed, when you share a problem, you certainly feel lighter and better, and it gives a chance to others also to learn from them.

      Absolutely! We need to use social media as a tool and use it only when need be, and I know you do just that being the efficient person that you are. I think it’s a great place to connect and meet people, but again, all that interaction and socializing should be done when we end our chores or when we take out time away from work for it, isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your words of wisdom with us. 🙂

  37. Hi Harleena,

    I follow just one rule till I work on social media. The rule is: “Do social media like you drive a car”. Keep looking straight and see in back mirror in case of urgent need. I never cast even a look at irrelevant sharings on social media and just stay to my niche. This saves my time and keeps me focused.

    Do you think it is fine to open separate account of each social media for your each blog if you have multiple blogs and can you be able to maintain unity of your identity with different accounts. If someone does all SMO with one each account of all social media for all his blogs will it not be so contradictory because on Facebook there is no separate category of friends for different niche. Will it not be injustice to share a post of technology blog that will also appear on timelines of those friends who added you because of your another fitness blog. Did you get my point. If you have any solution do share it with me and for the guidance of all.

    1. Hi Muba,

      Lol…I like that way of looking at social media, perhaps very focused I would say 🙂

      People mainly use the social media for leisure or pleasure and tend to get carried away, but as you mentioned, if you are able to manage the amount of time you spend online and just do your work and get away, you care on the right track.

      I think it is good to open separate account of social media for your each blog. I had the same question in mind some time ago. I learned that each of your site should’ve its own identity. It’ll do good to your blog branding if you’ve a logo and separate social media accounts. Also this move will help create a provision for future, in case you need to sell your blog for whatsoever reasons. Then, you can include the social media accounts in the entire package, which would enhance its cost.

      In my case, it’s a multi-niche blog, so people know and don’t mind variation in topics and niches, and I share them all in my social media accounts. Not to mention that now people invite me to their groups on FB or G+ communities, after knowing what all I share, so depends from person to person. But you’re right in that if you’ve different niche blogs, then promoting them through your one personal social media account might be bit confusing to some subscribers or followers for reasons that you mention.

      Having said all that, it is not easy to maintain multiple social media accounts unless you outsource them. Perhaps what you can also do is to have your personal social media accounts too display on all your sites to create a common identity.

      The best solution would be to make your blog multi-niche like mine if you can – I’m sure you’d benefit more in terms of easier management, saving of time and efforts, limit extra expenses, combine the readership and create more traffic as well as rise high in ranks.

      However, if what you’ve are static niche sites, then you needn’t do anything else but have separate social media accounts for each and update them not so frequently. Hope this helped 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your social media problems with us 🙂

  38. I feel my main problem with Social Media is not using it effectively!

    I generally visit Facebook and Twitter without a goal in mind, which means that I spend a lot of time just looking at pointless stuff and not really connecting. This then sends me down a black hole!

    I really would like to get strategic with my Social Media actions — connecting with specific people and adding value by answering questions!
    I’m going to need to spend some time working this out and getting a plan together!

    Thanks for the kick in the butt! 🙂

    1. Hi Jennifer,

      That’s the most common problem faced by most of us I would say, though thankfully I’ve overcome it now 🙂

      I can understand what you mean, but I think you must be doing that after you end your work, so that’s needed at times too. It’s a great way to connect with fellow bloggers, family, and friends, provided you complete all your tasks or you surely would get caught up if you don’t limit the time you spend there.

      Yes, if you are online these sites for a specific task or building your business, then you need to work that ways and target those people through what you share, which again you need to do within a set time period, or it can get overwhelming. Planning would surely help in this regard, especially if you want to catch up with a specific group of people online such social networking sites.

      Thanks for stopping by. Lol…not a kick, just a small reminder 😉

  39. Hey Harleena,

    Actually The point you have described about get addicted to social media relates me in a better sense. When I started to use Facebook that time brought disaster for me. I was so much addicted to it. I started thinking about my friend’s list even when I worked. It was the crucial time for me. After some one of my friend asked me to get rid of it. But you know it is really hard to avoid such type of things.

    When any newbie enters in the world of social media then with the attention of many strangers to become friend is such an unbelievable task happens. At that time beginners love to visit every hour to their account. All the points you have included are really helpful to every single person. I hope I will avoid such mistakes in my upcoming life.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Welcome to my blog Ravi!

      Glad I was able to finally welcome you, and sorry for the slight delay 🙂

      I think most of us can relate to these social media problems as we face them in our daily lives. Yes, Facebook, Twitter, and even G+ can become very addictive if you don’t know how to limit your time on such social networks. I also see many newbies online – ALL the time, and it saddens my heart because this is their most productive time that they just waste.

      It’s tough to get rid of your social media accounts, though some people do that but open up a new profile sooner or later. I guess the answer lies in learning to control yourself. Self-discipline might take time, but once you learn the way, things fall into place. Social media should be used when we are free or have ended our tasks, not otherwise.

      I agree with you, for a newcomer it’s tough to decide the right from wrong, and just the fact that so many people want to become their friends and the new things they pick up can become overwhelming. I think they forget that just for small pleasures online, they are missing out on making their lives worthwhile, and when realization strikes, it’s often too late. I hope this post helps people in more ways than one. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us 🙂

  40. Hi Harleena,

    As usual, you’ve delivered such an awesome post with a very detailed outlook of 20 prominently discussed problems due to social media.

    Like everything in life, social media is just a tool to reach out to more people, with ease and from the comfort of our own home. The benefits of social media are simply stupendous!

    However, with great power comes great responsibility and that is where problem begins, isn’t it?

    Most of us do not like to take responsibility for our actions and blame it on someone or something else. Just like money is evil (usually those who don’t have it enough speak about money that way even more), now, social media is bad for many many people who don’t understand how to use it or who are unwilling to learn about it.

    Yesterday, I was talking to a parent and he brought up the issue of drugs here in the US and how high school kids are susceptible to it. And he mentioned that certain types of drugs are being legalized in some states and that has brought down the revenue of drug mafia and brought down the population in jails drastically. Less of drug problems are being reported in those states and guess what? Doctors are now coming up with a constructive use of those drugs in curing diseases.

    Social media, if we take time to get educated and like everything else, if we discipline ourselves to act maturely, there is no problem.

    But, when we stay away from taking responsibility and keep the habit of blaming someone or something else for our own failures, it is a big problem.

    Just my two cents 🙂 although you know I shared a few days ago about social media problem parents can help their kids with. You know, even there, I wanted to make parents responsible for what kids do and see and face.

    Thank you for sharing!


    1. Hi Kumar,

      Glad you liked the post, and I loved your feedback 🙂

      Yes indeed, social media is where we all meet each other, speaking of which, that’s how we connected, didn’t we? It’s the only place where people from all walks of life meet and learn so much from each other, besides the great resource of information it is. But just as everything has issues, even the social media problems are somethings we can’t ignore.

      You are absolutely right about saying that we tend to blame others or things for our actions, which is the case with social media too, just because we don’t know how to handle or manage it in the right way. Talking of drugs as you mentioned – how can parents even think them to be ‘legal’ or allow their kids to take them? But perhaps after a certain stage things get out of their hand there. I’m glad in SO many ways I’m not staying there!! 🙂

      I remember your wonderful post about the problems with social media where parents play a part because it all does come down to parenting and how they impart the right knowledge to their kids. Keeping a watch and guiding your kids is vital, even if your kids are grown up.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your two cents with us – loved them 🙂

  41. Wow, you certainly ask the hard questions! Great points. I agree that online activity can lead to neglecting real life responsibilities. It’s a struggle to keep balance in life in general and social media makes it even harder.

    1. Welcome to my blog Meredith!

      Yes, they might be hard but I think they are the common social media problems most of us face, aren’t they? 🙂

      Absolutely! I’ve seen many parents neglect their responsibility of looking after their kids and family because they are always on the social networking sites, for whatever reasons. I agree it’s a struggle, especially for working moms, but family always comes first, and you need to balance things out so that they don’t suffer. Time management is an art we all need to learn that, isn’t it?

  42. Hello ma’am,

    Points 8,9, and 10 are so connected to me!

    Social media has brought in me FOMO,has given my productivity a back seat. I always have been active in social media specially google plus and Fb. Major problem is there are tonnes of new updates specially these days when I have hundreds of blogger friends updating thousands of posts. Each information is so interesting ( ok majority if not all) that i go read them and if I didnt know something I feel restless like am I missing something? All my friends know about such site or so and so facility on the net how come I don’t know etc. Then in an attempt to read and know all the stuff I loose my concentration and productivity.

    Please guide me ma’am.

    1. Hi Swadhin,

      Glad you could relate the post, and you are certainly not the only one to feel the way you do because most bloggers and those who work online, feel the same way, especially those who are active on the social networking sites.

      I can well understand about the feeling of not missing out the updates and all that others share, it’s a feeling of missing out on a lot, isn’t it? However, if you have work to do, you would certainly have to limit the work you spend on FB and G+. All I can suggest is that you could subscribe to the blogs you want to visit or add them to your RSS so that you don’t miss out anything, rather than waiting to check the updates as and when it comes online. That’s how I do it.

      Of course, you must spend some time online and be with everyone too so that you don’t miss out on things, but limit your time. Perhaps time yourself and spend an hour in the morning and one hour in the evening – less or more depends on you I would say. But by doing so, you know you have all the other hours to work. Try this out, I’m sure it would work for you and increase your focus and productivity.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your social media problems with us. Hope this little suggestion helped 🙂

      1. Thank you for your really helpful tips to cope up with the problems. Subscribing to rss is the best option I think to read and keep track of favorite blogs.I remember you had mentioned such a thing on one of your interviews that you shared on Twitter recently. Email subscription is also a brilliant idea but as I live in my inbox I don’t want to clutter my living area.:)

        1. You are most welcome, and yes, like you, I also subscribe to a very few important blogs and prefer to keep my inbox clutter free. Rest all of them are in my RSS, which you can visit, read, and comment whenever you get time.

          I don’t remember the interview, but I know it’s something I do and if you make further folders in your Feedly you can manage your blogs very well and plan out which ones you want to visit when.

          Thanks once again 🙂
