Based on the doccument, social media should be censored because there are things children shouldnt see. But in my opinion social media shouldnt be censored because teens/children should have privacy and look at what they want.
10/3/2022 09:08:23 am
I think it should be censored for people 12 and under because kids shouldn't be seeing content that is inappropriate for their age. For example, if a kid is watching something, an inappropriate video might pop up.

I think that social media shouldn't be censored because if you find something you don't like or see something you wish you didn't you were probably looking for it and you learned a lesson not to do that. And if someone sends something to you and you don't like it then you should learn not you click on random things. And if a kid finds toxic content and becomes a toxic person they were probably gonna become a toxic person anyway and now its just giving you more time to fix them.

I think social media should NOT be censored because, there is lots of information on the internet that kids and adults should learn about. Like the daily news from the 'New York Times' or podcasts that talk about the news. There are lots of valuable hacks and shortcuts on the internet focusing on daily tasks, I think people find that valuable, and that info can really change their life in a way. However, age limits should be required so that a kid a certain age cannot access social media, because there is info that can harm a child's mind, for example, some bad influences on the internet, trends that can possibly harm the child. But social media itself has it's positives, and that should be recognized.

I think that social media should not be censored because if children want to watch something, they should be able to watch it and if parent want to censor something, they almost always can.
10/3/2022 04:42:31 pm
I think that social media should be censored for children. However, I do think that it should be up to the child and their family/guardians what content should be censored. This is because each child had different maturity levels and handles certain content differently.

I think social media should be blocked to kids under 15 because as a 13 year old male, I can say that I have spent way to much time on some social media platforms. Time that you cant regain has been taken away from you and you just sit there scrolling for hours at a day. I think anyone above the age of 15 though, should have the opportunity to access social media platforms.
10/24/2022 08:10:33 am
I think social media should be blocked to kids under 10 because as a 13 year old boy, I can say that I have spent way to much time on some social media platforms. i just sit there on my phone scrolling for hours at a day. I think anyone above the age of 10 though, should have access social media platforms.
I think social media should not be censored because their should be a age limit on the use of certain websites and if you see something that you didn't wanna see, you can just scroll off that video and for young people, the parents should have parental control on what they can access on their devices.
10/4/2022 09:42:22 am
I think that social media should be censored for younger children because they can be exposed to content that isn't appropriate. However, parents and guardians shouldn't play too big of a part in censoring content because it can become an invasion of privacy. The censorship shouldn't be too invasive but strong enough to keep young children from seeing harmful material.
10/4/2022 09:43:40 am
I think social media should be censored for children because there are stuff on social media that children shouldn't be seeing or stuff children wouldn't like to see. Social media can also make kids stick to their phone all day because they are so attached to social media.
10/4/2022 09:43:44 am
In my opinion, social media should be censored but in a different way. For example, social media should have certain parts of the app or website for certain ages like kids shows and baking shows for kids under the age of 8 but questionable stuff for people 18+.
10/4/2022 09:58:59 am
I believe yes, social media should be censored, especially on platforms where you can't control what you see, such as TikTok or YouTube Shorts' scrolling mechanic. Aside from bad influence or inappropriate visuals, some children have conditions or trauma that can be triggered by seeing certain pictures or flashing lights. This can be mostly avoided if social media is censored. Ads should also be censored. Minors are seeing Tampon ads.
10/4/2022 10:53:35 am
Based on this document, I think Social Media shouldn't be banned or censored because teen's their chances to be able to explore other things and be able to tell themselves what is right or wrong.
10/4/2022 11:16:15 am
I think that Social media should not be censored because the internet is supposed to be an uncensored, decentralized network. If the United States, which is supposed to be a free country, censors Social Media, would other countries follow. This might end up in more and more media being censored. I understand the the need to stop children from viewing dangerous content so the kids won't hurt themselves, but the parents could help with that any responsible person could make a kid understand what to do and not to do. It has been that way for a long time. OR people could hurt themselves and they would understand by looking at others getting hurt trying to replicate some tiktok dance. I would prefer kids getting hurt rather than our freedoms being infringed. If the companies censor some stuff, they could censor whatever they want. It is their fault. We could move on to another platform. We control their profits by using their site and we have to power to change what the companies do with enough support.
10/4/2022 11:18:37 am
I think that social media SHOULD be censored for kids under 13 because there could be a lot of pop ups on You Tube that may be inappropriate. In addition, social media can be bad for our mental and physical health since there's people that post on online platforms like Tik tok or Instagram, you may be influenced by them to do bad trends or dangerous ones. Furthermore, you may want to be them too, lets say physical appearance, you want to be just like them and you think you're not perfect and that could make you insecure of how you look and act. My point here is that social media can affect others mentally and physically. Also, nowadays I see kids that are like 7 years old on social media platforms acting like an adult, I'm not saying that's wrong but it kind of is since they're getting influenced by older people who are destroying their childhood.
10/4/2022 11:23:51 am
I think social media should not be censored because people are responsible for what they click and what they look at. parents should keep watch of their kid making sure they are not doing anything they aren't supposed too. Many responsible teens shouldn't have to suffer and not go on their favorite apps just because some child's mother isn't watching what their doing on social media. when adults buy some type of device for their kid and not watching what they look at that is the parents fault. Not the Child's.
10/4/2022 11:36:01 am
Based on the article, social media should be censored for kids under 16 but parents shouldn't have control of their social media account because it invades their privacy. In my opinion, I think that social media should be censored because there are a lot of inappropriate things on social media and it shouldn't be shown to kids especially under 13.
10/4/2022 12:11:11 pm
I think that social media censor or not should be the children, family, and guardians' decision for what content should be censored. Due to different preferences, differences in maturity, and reactions to graphic experiences. Social media should be up to the user based off of their preferences of seeing graphic stuff or not.
10/4/2022 01:26:13 pm
I think social media should be censored because the internet can be a dangerous place for kids. For example, while online there are a lot of scams leading to stalking, robbery, tracking, hacking etc. In addition, kids can be exposed to bad content that includes bad language, inappropriate content, scams, internet trolls.
10/4/2022 03:17:58 pm
I think social media should be censored for people under the age of 18 because social media is a toxic place especially for teens that are addicted to their phones. Also, social media can influence your behavior in everyday life. For example, being addicted to your phone can make you lose track of time and not do your homework.
I think that social media should not be censor and should depend children, family, and guardians' decision for what content should be censored. Due to different mindsets, differences in age, and responses to x-rated things. Social media should be up to the user based off of their preferences of seeing x-rated stuff or not.
10/4/2022 04:29:44 pm
I think that social media should not be censored since the child has full responsibility going on to that website or app. The child is going onto social media knowing full well that social media is a scary place and can do harm. If the parents/guardians have full charge on what their child is watching, they don't really know for sure what is harmful or not to the child themselves. I understand that children can be exposed to dangerous things on the internet, but it's really their fault, or their parent's for not letting them understand that the internet is not a safe place and to teach them that there are things to avoid and not do.
10/4/2022 04:48:43 pm
I think social media should not be censored because than teens can learn what is bad and learn not to click weird things. In my opinion, only kids under 12 should be censored. In addition, schools educate children on what not to do on the internet.
10/4/2022 05:45:35 pm
I think social media should be censored because some stuff might not be age appropriate for the child. If they were introduced to this stuff they might be traumatized for life. Social media should ask what there preferences are and what the age of the user is so they can show age appropriate stuff
10/4/2022 06:32:37 pm
In my opinion, I think that social media should not be censored because it is your responsibility on what you're searching up. In addition, If you're going to search something that is age restricted, you are bypassing and basically agreeing to the terms of viewing (potentially) harmful materials. In other words, children should act maturely when they are on the internet.
10/4/2022 09:03:40 pm
In my opinion I think social media should not be censored because people know themselves more than others so you should be able to be mature on what you do and if you see something you don't like then you should just click away from that
10/5/2022 08:22:27 am
I think that social media should not be censored because although there are a lot of good and bad things in social media, it is the parent's responsibility to protect their children from harm. A parent can set restrictions for their kids when they are young, but when the child has reached a mature age, the restrictions should be turned off and give the child their own privacy, as they know that their child will be responsible when browsing online.
10/5/2022 08:24:02 am
I think that social media should be censored for younger children as there are some inappropriate/questionable content. As for teens or just the older kids, I think they should be responsible for their own actions and choices.
10/5/2022 08:59:13 am
I think that social media should not be censored because children should learn their own lessons about what not to look at and what is beneficial for them to see. With these lessons, children will always know what is harmful to them, and will carry these lessons throughout their whole life. If parents and the media company censors posts that are deemed inappropriate, kids will never learn their lesson and would always be oblivious to the dangers of the internet. Teenagers, children and everything in between should learn to have responsibility for how they view the internet before it is too late.
10/5/2022 09:20:42 am
I think social media should not be censored for children because children can learn a lot from social media. For instance, some users post about current events in a short and brief way on social media which can make it easier for children to understand compared to pages of articles.
10/5/2022 09:49:55 am
I think that social media should be censored to an extent. If it is a younger child, I think it's the parents' responsibility to make sure that nothing disturbing is seen. However, if the child is older, they should be able to make their own decisions and know what's disturbing and what's not. Overall, it should be up to the parents and child to decide whether it's best for them.
I think that social media should be censored because there are dangerous sites out there that can trick younger ages, such as stealing address, parent’s credit card information, or hacking into your device. However, social media should only be censored for some circumstances, like for kids they should be limited, but for adults they have a general awareness of what’s dangerous and what’s not dangerous.
10/5/2022 10:31:20 am
I think social media should not be censored because that way, teens learn early on the dangers and risks on social media. It's their responsibility to know what they're watching and that people do make content they do not want to watch. Beside, if it's censored, there are going to be people out there who want to find a way around that just to show that they can and some who may want to harm kids on purpose. Since social media would be censored, kids wouldn't know what to do and the results might be worse.
10/5/2022 12:42:11 pm
I think that social media shouldn't be censored however parents should make sure their kids are aware of the dangers of social media and what they are watching. I also think it's important that the kid is allowed to make the decision for themselves because teenagers should have a sense of responsibility.
10/5/2022 01:58:54 pm
based on the document i think that some things on social media shouldn't be censored because a lot of things online can teach kids and teens a lot, relating to online work and lessons, its also something that can entertain teens from being bored. however , if something inappropriate pops up on any social media platforms it is up to them to decide if they can view it or not because teens are more responsible to handle the situation, as for children's under the age of 12 they are the ones that needs to be helped from their parents more.
10/5/2022 02:47:04 pm
I think social media should not be censored because people should be responsible enough to control what they see on social media.Also people who are on social media should be old enough to handle seeing something that is innapropriote and click off it.
10/5/2022 05:28:40 pm
I think that social media shouldn't be censored because I think people are responsible for what they watch and what they shouldn't. Also i think kids could learn a lot more by exploring the internet then just by staying within their age group of social media and if companies and parents look at our social media it will make us feel uncomfortable
10/5/2022 07:04:09 pm
I think that social media shouldn't be censored because people find their new interests and hobbies on there. People should be able to control themselves for the chance that there is inappropriate to click off and block it. With my experiences with social media I have not seen any inappropriate pop up ads. Social media should be a safe entertainment platform for teens.
10/5/2022 07:36:27 pm
Based off the article, social media should be censored because it can be potentially harmful to young children being unsupervised online and being exposed to negative influences while their parents aren't paying attention to them. Personally, I believe social media should not be censored because it restricts freedom from people who want to search something up. Who decides what content is considered harmful or not?
10/6/2022 04:38:18 am
I think social media should be censored for Young child’s because it could be harmful for them because they could be exposed to inappropriate videos or negative influence that could affect them on the future. Personally I think it shouldn’t be censored I think social media could be really good for people to communicate and feel free to do what they want but I think for young child’s parents could take care of them a little bit more and protect them from the negative influence and be sure of what kind of stuff your letting you child see on the internet and be responsable for it.
10/6/2022 06:24:12 am
I think social media should not be censored, because people need privacy on the internet. I think that if someone is below a certain age, it should be censored, but I think that a mature person who is a teen can decide for themselves if what they're seeing is innapropriate.
10/6/2022 06:31:22 am
Based on the article, I believe that they should not censer social media because that will be limiting the many helpful things they can also learn from social media. i for one believe that if you do limit social media you should only limit people under the ages of 10 and under because after that age the kids can already think for themselves and can make choices without their parents always watching them, social media can only be harmful if you don't use it right.
10/6/2022 06:36:37 am
I think social media should not be censored because there is always an option to not see anymore content like this. It can also limit content that can be useful to some. When having social media you should be able to make choices for yourself and you should control what you see or don't see.
10/6/2022 09:21:54 am
I think social media should be censored however only for kids that are under the age of 12, for example kids under 12 seeing some of the things on the darker side of the internet is not okay at all, however I think after a certain age like 13 and up you become more responsible and should be able to control what your looking at on the internet
10/6/2022 01:17:57 pm
Social Media should not be censored. Social Media is a place where people with different opinions and viewpoints come to share their own side of a problem. Censoring this can allow one side to freely share their opinion and the other side of an argument is censored and left out. With this said, there may be some sensitive topics that are not suited for suited for kids. Social media should not be censored but should have an age minimum (like 13 or 18).
10/6/2022 01:28:08 pm
Social media should be censored because kids should not be exposed to toxic content at such a young age. For example, many children under 13 are active on a toxic platform called "Tik Tok", which allows kids to be influenced by immature adults. On the other hand, some people might say that kids should be able to see the media for themselves and decide if the content is appropriate. However, this argument is misguided because children cannot judge a topic they have not been educated on. Moreover, if an adult or respectable figure has not taught their child how to tell right from wrong, their child will assume everything on social media is right because their parents have allowed them to look at this kind of content. In addition, if kids were allowed to view all of social media and not have it censored from them, it could cause children to follow dangerous content, leading to severe consequences for the children and even their friends. Furthermore, since children are very naïve, once someone in their friend group has fallen under the influence of the dark side of social media it will cause the whole society, if not the generation to follow and, as a whole, become toxic.
10/6/2022 01:32:06 pm
no because everyone deserves their own privacy and because heir is a lot of bullying in social media. If censored, someone will use the information to commit a crime that will led to a bigger problem.
10/6/2022 01:47:18 pm
In my opinion I think social media should be censored because there might be thing that they should not be looking at and it can prevent kid from looking at toxic or disturbing content.
10/6/2022 02:14:42 pm
Social media should be censored for children because there are many violent, inappropriate, and disturbing behaviors on social media that can negatively influence children at a young age. However, it shouldn't be censored for teens because they are mature and old enough to decide themselves what is helpful for them to know or learn about and what is not.
10/6/2022 03:09:03 pm
Social media should NOT be censored because kids should know what goes on if the world if the want to know.
10/6/2022 04:23:25 pm
I think that social media should be censored for young children since there is inappropriate content that they should not see at their age. However that would not be necessary for teens and people older because they can be responsible for their actions and they know what content they should be accessing.
10/6/2022 05:01:04 pm
I think social media should be censored but not that heavily censored. What I mean by this is that social media should block inappropriate sites, but they should not have parents look at what their kids are doing because I think that it is an invasion of privacy. Social media should have like some sort of strong verification for very sensitive videos or sites and for less sensitive that really won't harm a teen's mental health, there should just be a simple warning of what they are going to see.
10/6/2022 05:25:50 pm
Social media should not be censored because there is really helpful stuff on the internet if you look for it.Plus, There is funny stuff on the internet.
I think that Social Media shouldn't be censored because of the fact that students should be able to talk to their friends online if in person conversations can not happen. In addition, students should be able to understand and see what happens in the world.
10/6/2022 05:27:53 pm
I think social media should not be censored because teenagers all know what to watch and what not to watch, and they can control themselves not to watch bad things, they also have their own privacy, but if it is a younger child Don't understand these, so they should be reviewed by a parent/guardian.
10/6/2022 05:28:49 pm
I think social media should be partly censored for people ages 12 and below since people ages 12 and below shouldn't be seeing disturbing content and those content should be censored, while I think other content which isn't disturbing shouldn't be censored for ages 12 and below like images of friends or others as those are content that are fine for ages 12 and below to see, however for ages above 12 shouldn't have as strict as censorship as people ages 12 and below.
10/6/2022 05:45:17 pm
I think some social media should be censored for kids at least under 12 because something’s on the internet are not really appropriate for children. But on the other hand social media shouldn’t be censored because it would limit a lot of kids from certain stuff like texting posting photos even getting on the app it’s self which would lead to some kids lying about there age just to message there friends and have a social media life.
10/6/2022 06:19:56 pm
I think social media should be censored for kids under 12 years old because on the internet there is some inappropriate content. Kids under 12 years old may not know what to when they see it.
10/6/2022 08:29:35 pm
I don't think social media should be censored because if some kid is on social media and sees something they shouldn't it was probably because they searched for it. Maybe social media should be censored a little bit but not too much.
10/6/2022 10:03:38 pm
Based of the article it says that social media should be censored as social media shows harmful acts and videos that are bad for the kids mind. In my general opinion it depends as the platform should have restrictions for younger kids so then they won't see any bad videos, as for if you were older you could see anything. Also videos that contain dangerous acts normally include the saying of "don't do this at home" or something along the lines of don't do it at home.

I think that social media should be censored or restricted based on age because some content on social media may be inappropriate or full toxicity, meaning the content shouldn't be shown to younger audiences. This is where the age restrictions would come in, not allowing audiences under a certain age to see the content posted. While some may argue that age restrictions and censoring on content may cause issues with childrens privacy. We need to take into consideration on how dangerous social media could be. It could be full of toxic communities that shouldn't be introduced young childrens since it could introduce childrens to toxic and disturbing words and ideas.
10/7/2022 04:46:38 am
I think that social media should be censored because censorship restricts kids from seeing things that they aren't ready to see. Without proper censorship, kids would be exposed to tons of content that would be traumatizing for a kid to see. Some of the things that are posted on social media can be harmful to a child's developing mind and can influence them in a negative way. It is important for kids to mature at their own pace and social media does not allow kids to do so.
10/7/2022 04:48:51 am
In my opinion social media should be censored or restricted for people under the ages of 18 because of inappropriate content that you can’t control. Once you watch it once they will keep popping up. As a result adolescents will get influenced and perhaps pass it on to other people, creating a negative future. Instead I think the children’s parent or guardian should decide what will be censored because they know him/her the best.
10/7/2022 04:51:31 am
Based on the article, social media should be censored for kids under 16 but parents shouldn't have control of their kid social media account it may lead to no privacy.People should be able to control themselves for the chance that there is inappropriate to click off and block it.
10/7/2022 09:20:36 am
I think that social media is a fun place to express who you are. And I think it shouldn't be cencorced because you are posting a pictrue of sending a video that you know it is going to public and that everyone would see so I know that people have really fun but it can be harsh sometimes so what do you think.
10/7/2022 04:17:06 pm
Social media should be censored because kids are seeing things that they should not see because of social media. I think social media shouldn’t because even though it not so good for everyone some people find it really helpful
10/7/2022 04:21:27 pm
I think that social media shouldn't be censored although there may be some inappropriate content. However, I believe the user is responsible for what they see.
10/7/2022 04:24:41 pm
I do think that social media should be censored. Not so censored that someone under 16 wouldnt be able to access it because most teens use and go onto the internet just scrolling on the internet. The internet should censor out things that people under 16 shouldnt be seeing, but their adult or guardian shouldnt be spying on their kids on the internet.
10/7/2022 05:13:57 pm
I think social media should be censored for people under 12 and in some cases older. The fact that some content might be inappropriate can’t be good and doesn’t necessarily take away any freedoms on social media if said content is wildly Inappropriate for the viewer. However, I also think that censorship might not be needed if parents can get involved and block any inappropriate content children might come across.
10/7/2022 05:28:28 pm
I think that social media should have most of its contents censored for children. While the rest would be for teens because teens are more older and mature.
10/7/2022 09:02:02 pm
I don't think that social media should be censored. Social Media can be a great and educational platform for kids. As the article says, when teenagers are exposed to lots of content, it can help them learn a lot. Although it may be considered toxic, I think that it's up to themselves to decide and understand what is harmful or helpful to their own life.
10/8/2022 07:12:21 am
When I read the article the points they made for censorship because it may be bad for young kids.But in my opinion I don’t think that they should censor any social media because it is a place for many people to say their opinion on topics that they may not be able to talk about or protest in real life.
10/12/2022 05:19:50 am
Based on the document it should be censored because it’s inappropriate from most kids and because most kids aren’t ready for uncensored media
10/12/2022 06:18:49 am
I think social media should be censored for kids only because they could see something inappropriate but, I think it shouldn't be censored for teens and up because they are more responsible, know how to handle social media better and are able to make good choices online.
10/14/2022 01:58:34 pm
I don’t think it should be sensors because the websites are going to warn you before going in and if you accept it, it is kinda your fault because you chose to do it
10/20/2022 09:23:47 am
I don't think social media should be censored because everyone grows up and learns the things on social media anyway and little kids shouldn't be searching up random stuff or even should be allowed to access social media.
10/24/2022 08:14:31 am
I think social media should be blocked to kids under 10 because as a 13 year old boy, I can say that I have spent way to much time on some social media platforms. i just sit there scrolling for hours at a time day. I think anyone above the age of 10 though, should have access social media platforms.
10/24/2022 08:20:16 am
No, i don't think social media should be censored because that would also mean parents being able to look at everything you do, and in other words: stalking. Imagine going about your life knowing everything you do can be seen by your parents, and that really breaks your trust.
10/24/2022 09:03:56 am
Social media should be censored but parents or others shouldn't be able to see what you're up to. Like, maybe other people who already watched the content should be able to like vote if its appropriate for kids to watch or not, then it gets censored/not censored based on majority votes. When I watch videos alot of times innocent things such as someone playing a game gets censored so bots/a singular person shouldn't be able to decide if something is inappropriate or not. Thus, the majority vote.
10/24/2022 09:40:51 am
I think social media should be censored to a certain extent for users under 12 years old. There are a lot of harmful pictures and videos that a child could come across by accident or even on purpose out of curiosity, so it's important to monitor what websites and content your child can view, but also not being too overprotective over their privacy.
I think that Social Media should not be censor. I think it is fair that people should not be expose to toxic content. But, people under 16 years wouldn't get the full experience and opportunities to content that might be helpful. Plus, the restriction might be offensive to people under 16 years old.
