Positive or Negative Impact?


Social media is a powerful marketing tool that enables businesses to build relationships with customers and reach millions of people. Nowadays, people spend more time online than they do with their families or friends. They use smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices for social networking instead of going out and meeting people in person. One frightening statistic from the United States is that 50% of children have been bullied through messages or pictures sent on social media sites such as Facebook or Instagram.


The advantages of social media are that it connects millions of people around the world, increases awareness for important issues like climate change or cancer research, helps maintain relationships when relatives are far away from each other, and provides new opportunities to learn skills like photography or video editing. The disadvantages of social media are that it is distracting us in class or during work time with notifications on our phones or in-person conversations about what someone.


Social media has changed how people access information and interact with each other. It has an impact on the way we share and consume information. This change is seen in the way people get their news by following news outlets on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms. It is also seen in the change in consumption habits of books, TV shows, movies by following them on social media channels rather than buying or renting them from a store.


True Impact


Social media has proven to be a key factor in many elections and revolutions around the world. In fact, the Arab Spring was largely a result of social media awareness campaigns.
