People use social media for multiple reasons like seeking employment, finding romance, or getting advice. Social media has also proven to be a very useful device for education.

Other than the aspects mentioned before, social media also strengthens the bonds between loved ones. It is because of social media that distance is not a barrier anymore for reaching out. Social media is a great platform for exposure of young budding artists that allow them to showcase their talent for free to a huge audience.

Social media provide us is that it allows companies to promote their brands. Social media has become a hub for campaigning and advertising, along with offering the company a great platform for connecting with their customers.

Apart from the various attractive features of social media that often leads to the setting of trends, it also helps in empowering youth and people of other age groups as well. Like-minded people form a network among themselves on social by creating or joining social groups or pages where they share the content of similar interests and also get to interact with each other.

Despite having so many advantages, social media is also often said to be one of the most harmful elements in society. Social media can lead to grave consequences if not monitored. Social media invades the privacy of people like no other form of communication ever did before.

Often children and people, who over-share on social media, fall prey to predators like bullies and hackers. The mental health of people is affected significantly because of cyber-bullying on social media. The addiction to social media is a serious matter of concern that many youths face. Addiction to social media leads to an increase in anxiety, hampering of studies, and, most importantly, a waste of time.

Social media has also been responsible for creating communal rifts and misunderstanding among many individuals. Many positive and peace- loving minds of people are poisoned because of the spread of fake news on social media.

Hence, as responsible people, we should use social media with good intentions rather than misusing it.
