Social media applications provide young people with a very gratifying way to channel their innate drive to connect with others socially. However, social media also has its downsides. It can be so addictive that it crowds out the time kids should be spending in healthy face-to-face social interaction. Additionally, there is something about interacting online that makes it very easy for nearly everyone to cross a line and engage in uncivil, hostile social interaction. As a result, the social atmosphere online can often be toxic, and can cause people to take actions that have serious real-life consequences --- bullying, verbal altercations, physical altercations, and attempts at suicide.
