To many students, joining social media “circles” (朋友圈) is now more important than making new friends in real life. And it’s easy. If you have a mobile phone, you can download many things such as Sina Weibo, QQ and WeChat.

“I love to check my friends’ updates (更新). I also enjoy news and humor shared on social media,” said Wang Wei, 14, from a middle school in Shenzhen. While enjoying these, Wang distances himself from real life. “I love playing the plane-shooting game on WeChat, but have no interest in playing chess with my classmates,” said Wang.

Deng Yunyun, 14, from Xuhui Middle School in Shanghai, said that social media has influenced their normal life. Last month, his school held a basketball match, and a student hurt his leg. Instead of giving him some help, students were busy with updating WeChat blogs about the accident. “I think they need to learn to balance their real and online lives, and what worries parents and teachers a lot is safety.” said Deng.

“Many students are happy to tell their interests and personal information to their social media ‘friends’. And this could bring them danger,” said Miss Wang, a teacher from a Shenzhen middle school. “For example, the use of WeChat’s shake-shake allows users to connect to other users nearby. Also police warn about the risks of making friends in this way.”
