Social Media had officially become a part of everybody's lives ever since people discovered how easy it has become to keep in touch with friends and relatives when they have the access to the world-wide-web. There are so many things one can do if he can easily access different social media platforms such as facebook, twitter, Instagram and etc.

According to Inquisitr, there are plenty of advantages one can get from social media. One of them is the capability of connecting with people from different places. People nowadays can connect and with other people within a few seconds.

With the access to social media, people can share their experiences to different people. One can also provide new and valuable insights and ideas, while the others gain and learn facts, opinions and beliefs from different perspectives as well; this is by far the most important benefit from social media because people can learn so much from so many things that all kinds of people of different ages can give.

Businesses can also use social media to promote their products and promos. An article from a Jobs & Hire even stated that social media is one of the best guides when a person is in a search for jobs.

Most will definitely agree on the advantages that one can get from social media but no one will disagree with the fact that social media also has disadvantages. A source wrote that in social media, there can be cyber-bullying which can easily affect one's entire life. It has become so easy for other people to disrespect and discriminate other people through the internet and it's quite disappointing.

Going online can also be a  total time-waster. A person can just scroll through his newsfeed and the next thing he knows he had already spent two hours of his precious time scrolling when he could have spent his two hours doing important matters. Some people uses social media as a threat to other people too, they can threaten someone to expose scandalous things on the internet which can totally have a negative impact on the other's life.
