IELTS Essay Sample Answer # Effects Of Social Media

You should spend 40 minutes on this task.

Many people believe that effect of social media on both individuals and society has been negative. To what extent do you agree or disagree.

Effects-Of-Social-Media


Sample Answer:
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.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions # Cell Phones

In a recent post, we talked about the cue card where one was not allowed to use cell phones. This time we are looking at the part 3 questions related to the cue card on cell phones.

What is the impact of cellphones?

Like most technologies, cellphones surely have made a place in our day to day lives. With the coming of smart phones, people now use it for almost everything. Gone are the days when people bought cameras. The only people who buy cameras nowadays are either the camera lovers or professional photographers. So, the general public has now become a photographer. People carry phones everywhere because they need the next most important thing, internet. Internet allows people to communicate and do so much more. I think cell phones have in a way changed the way people live their lives.

What do you think about people who speak loudly on cellphone in public places?

Be it public place or anywhere, speaking loudly on phone, I believe is quite unethical. When one speaks loudly on phone, firstly it disturbs the other person on phone. The disadvantage with phones has been that one cannot see the expression of other when talking, so speaking loudly could be taken any ways. Apart from the person on the other end, it also creates nuisance for the people around.

Do young people use cellphones the same way old people do?

I think definitely  not. But for that matter, in my opinion it is not just about old and young, it is also about two different individuals. I have seen older people loving whatsapp and facebook and using it extensively. And even some young, who prefer not using them. But, if we take it in a more general way, young people often click photos and listen to music or probably play games on the phone. However, older people are more fond of chatting with their peers.

What is your opinion on selfies with cell phone?

Selfies are a great way of expressing oneself. But, overdone, just like other things does great avoidance. Selfies in a positive way, do help a person knowing their individuality. So, it tells that one need not to be part of something to be happy. In my opinion its good, only if not done extensively.

Are cell phones important to you?

Well being the part of the 21st century, yes cell phones are important for me. I need it to do my work and communicate with people. But, certainly not the smart phones have much importance in my life. I think any phone that allows me to communicate well with others, is important.
