I found that among all age groups, teenagers are vulnerable to the destructive and addictive nature of social media when used in excess. This age group is also prone to feeling socially isolated and depressed from the social comparisons that social media promotes. This may be more evident in family relationships and communication between parents and adolescents.

I’m sorry, Bitagaming, I’ve seen this sort of behavior too many times not to recognize it. Here you “raised the curtain” on yourself by posting two computer-generated translations one right after the other:
It’s clear you’re struggling to express yourself at a collegiate level in a writing course; I’m completely sympathetic to that problem. But you’re going to have to take advantage of the resources the college can offer to help you achieve fluency before you can pass a Comp II course.
Too many of your entries contain indecipherable passages like this one, which appears to suggest that obese people eat their children:
I’m very sorry, but this is agonizing to read, Bitagaming. It’s clear from their fluency that you’re copying some sentences wholesale but following them up with bad translations or your own attempts to summarize material. I don’t doubt your intelligence. It’s possible you understand everything you’re struggling to write about, but this is a course in writing, not understanding, and in your ability to communicate ideas clearly in English. That skill you clearly do not have sufficiently mastered. I can’t pass your work based on your good intentions.
