Many people believe that effect of social media on both individuals and society has been negative. To what extent do you agree or disagree.
Over a period of a decade, we have seen an advancement in the field of science and technology like never before. With the coming of the internet, several sub-branches came into existence. One of them being the social networking sites. Some people believe that websites like Instagram and facebook have had detrimental effects on the individuals as well as society. In my opinion, however, with every change, there do come the good and the bad.
In terms of individual impact, social media sites proved to be both beneficial and boon. The world has shrunk to a point where we can interact with a larger audience. For instance, a person can interact with someone living in Afghanistan over a project on facebook or skype. Even more, we have become more knowledgeable! One cannot deny the importance of youtube in our lives as an immense help in making us learn new things. However, just like anything over done do have negative impacts, people who browse facebook for simply wiling away time surely loose out on many things.
With respect to society, things surely have changed. Comparing them to the past scenario not only limits us it also allows us not to have a better approach towards changes. With the coming of social media, on one hand where people are becoming defragmented there are examples where people have joined hands towards making society a better place.
Overall, in my opinion, with every new change, there do come loopholes. As an individual, it must be our responsibility to make the best of everything present.
