In the recent years, social media and communication
has grown astronomically. Online social media have gained mind-blowing worldwide
growth and popularity. According to various research studies social
networks are impacting the society
greatly. And this can be both positive and negative impact.
As we know, social media includes all
social networks that we use in our daily life. Some people think that social
media has more benefits than drawbacks, while
others think the opposite. According to Bilal Ahmad`s article there are 3 main
advantages and disadvantages of social media.Firstly, I want to start from
positive sides of social media that are
explained in this article. The first and main advantage of the social
media is connectivity. People from anywhere can connect with each other. It` s
a great opportunity because we can share our thoughts with other people.
media has a lot of benefits for the students and teachers. It is very easy to
educate from others who are experts and professionals. For
instance, you can find some online lessons or take lessons by video calls.
The last and the main advantage of social media is that you can know about the latest
happenings in the world. For example, you can read
about everything what happens in the world, also, you can watch videos and
update the news. From my point of view, it is one the main and best opportunity
that social media give to us.
I said, like everything in the world, social media can’ t be the perfect thing
and it has some drawbacks, that seriously affect our lives. Firstly, the main
problem is addiction.
The addictive part of the social media is very bad and
can disturb personal lives . The teenagers are the most affected by the
addiction of the social media. They get involved very extensively
and are eventually cut off from the society. For example, nowadays teenagers spend half of their time
sitting and chatting at social media. As teenager I can say that , not all, but
most part of teenager will “go crazy” if we will take out social media from
Second drawback is, health issues. The excess usage of social media can also
have a negative impact on the health. A lot of people
have problems with eyeside, because of the computers and phones. It looks like
it is not a big problem, but in our century even 3-4 old children wear glasses
for sight. In my opinion it is not normal, and it will become a huge problem in
So, the last thing about social media is that, social media can cause a
death of people. Not
just by using it, but by following crazy things that are shared on the internet. For example,
people start to do meaningless stuffs and share their photos or videos in
social networks. Sometimes it can be really dangerous for their life. Because adolescents have not strong consciousness, it is
easy to manipulate them.
When we talk about social media, it is
impossible to do not mention communication technologies. As we know, we are not
able to use social media without communication technologies, like, phones,
laptops and computers. Like a social media, communication technologies affect
our lives in the same way.
To sum up, I want to say, that in my opinion, social media and communication
tehnologies slowly ruin our life. According to Karl Pilkington, “Everyone is
living for everyone else now. They’re doing stuff so they can tell other people
about it. No one wants to hear about daily routine”. Some people can not agree
with me, but day by day, we continue to use it. And as it continues we don’t
feel that this technologies seriously affect our mind, our health and our lives.
And I believe that we must decrease the time that we spend on social
media, if we want to save our life’s. It’s kind of said that Social media is a
big part of our life, but, at least we can try to use it in a better way.
