The Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle, has expressed concern over the adverse effects of social media on the productivity of the youth.
He pointed out that social media platforms are a significant distraction for young individuals, leading them to spend considerable time on unproductive discussions.During his speech at the Cape Coast Archdiocesan Youth Rally of the Roman Catholic Church held in Assin Fosu, in the Central Region, the Archbishop urged the youth to use social media constructively.
He encouraged them to acquire new skills and research topics that could enhance their lives, rather than getting caught up in ephemeral online trends.
“Social media, especially TikTok, has rendered most youth idle, as they devote much time there instead of using the time productively. Use your social media profitably; use it to learn new skills and search for valuable information instead of following unnecessary trends online,” Archbishop Palmer-Buckle advised, according to
