Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present the problem, that is excessive infl uence of new media on young people, who use the media more and more willingly. The childhood is the most important period in shaping of our identity. Lack of authorities in the real life and moving the attention to the Internet is a great threat for young people. Addiction to mobile phones and the Internet can cause problems with relations with their equals and the adults. Excessive fascination with the world of social media and total attention to what is happening in them is a serious problem for many young people today. In this case, the role of adults seems invaluable, because it is in their hands to provide younger generations with alternatives as attractive as those in the online world.
