Megan Fox Thinks Social Media is 'Really Toxic' for Kids

Megan Fox is sharing her thoughts on social media and why she doesn’t think children should be using the various services.

“I think it’s really toxic for our youth culture,” the 29-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight. “There is a hierarchy in schools of who’s the cool kid based on who has the most followers and who has the most likes. It’s a really terrible message to wake up every day and have your kids going, ‘Who liked my photo?’ and ‘Who’s following me?’”

Megan was only on Twitter for a few days before she had enough.

“When I was on Twitter for five days, I would have 12- and 13-year-old kids going, ‘If you don’t follow me back, I am going to kill myself.’ I was like this is [expletive] awful,” Megan added. “Parents should pay attention to that and have your kids off of it. You’re not ready for that [expletive] when you’re a teenager. You need to be an adult before you can start messing around with that. It’s irresponsible and it’s dangerous.”

Megan and her ex Brian Austin Green are the parents to two sons – Noah, 3, and Bodhi, 22 months.

    What’s wrong with the stuff she says? She got fired from Transformers, but so what? The girls who starred in those latter movies aren’t exactly having Meryl Streep’s career. I like Megan Fox. She’s always genuine and she’s actually really funny. And here’s she’s dead right about social media and kids. In fact, I’d argue it’s often bad for adults who aren’t competent to deal with it either.

    She’s absolutely right and I say this all the time. Kids/teens and even adults measure their worth in their social media ranking. I know teenagers who only post things at a certain time because they think thats the time to get the most likes. And the girls who constantly post pics with their butts as a main focus who JUST want people to comment about it or post the peach emoji. When I have kids they’re not getting phones until they’re 16 lol and need it for safety because they’ll have their license.
