Social media is an important tool that allows people to communicate with others. There are many advantages of using the social media, but one of the most serious challenges that the youth is facing, is that, it is affecting their interpersonal communication. For example, they use social media to share their feelings instead of face to face communication. The objective of the research is to identity the degree of how social media affects the youth's interpersonal communication in UAE. Also, we will explore the factors that lead the youth to express, share their feelings and problems in the virtual world. Moreover, we will investigate the consequences of the virtual world on the youth's interpersonal communication. Finally, we will list the possible solutions. Survey will be conducted as a methodology and it will be distributed to the youth population living in UAE. The social media affects the interpersonal communication negatively more than positively and it will be explained clearly in the paper.
