To illustrate, social media negativley effects education. As texting contiues among users the less they correctly use vocabulary. Abbreviations, or acronyms, have become the norm on social media. Irl, Wyd, Tbh, etc., are acronyms used on a daily basis by people. One study shows that more than one in five students (18-24) wouldn’t feel confident in writing an important email without looking at a dictionary (jones). According to former Manchester University student, Lucy Jones, “The increasing use of variant spellings on the internet has been brought about by people typing at speed in chatrooms and on social networking sites where the general attitude is that there isn’t a need to correct typos or conform to spelling rules.”
