Abstract

The development of technology in the modern era today is so fast and easy to use for the general public, including the information spread through gadgets. Such internet-connected technology makes it easy for users to access information around the world through the most common application for teenagers namely social media. This application is easy to obtain and use, as well as expand the network of teenagers to access information that is educative, recreational and social. This paper discusses the use of social media and its impact on language acquisition in adolescents. The method of data collection uses observation and interviews with students of MTs Negeri Batu, Indonesia. The study results show that the use of social media does not fully have a positive impact on the acquisition of language in adolescents. This research is expected to be a consideration for educators and parents to monitor the use of social media applications for children to contribute more positively.
