Social Media a boon or bane
Dear friends I recently participated in a debate on ‘Social Media’ in my school. I was to
prepare content against ‘Social Media’ and put the point across the audience.
I know there are more members who are for the ‘Social Media’ including me but during my
research and study, I found that ‘Social Media’ can be a bane if one doesn’t control Social
media well. Let me share some of those thoughts with you all. Please share your feedback.
Social media helps us to contact each other very fast and also distance is not a barrier of it. but it has more disadvantages than advantages, for teenagers it is a devil…it wastes their precious time of studying and playing with their friends instead of studying they play games on social networking sites and chat with their friends.
And dear friends…it is not only all of us but our elders also do the same it is okay when
they contact their old friends but its definitely wrong when they are busy in social media
too much and are not doing their important job. This would be better if they find their
old friend’s address on facebook and then they have face to face interaction with their
Nowadays people are totally living in the virtual world. They don’t have even time to
interact with their family and friends. This reminds me the quote of the famous scientist
Albert Einstein, “I fear the day when technology will surpass human interaction and the
world will have a generation of idiots.” At that point in time, Albert Einstein was afraid
of the day when technology will be at it’s insane and humans will completely depend on it
will lose their own thinking to become bunch of idiots.
Friends on some social networking sites there are options like you are the 100th visitor, hit the iPhone and you will get it. Friends.. its all fake these are all scams and sometime may people click on it and are trapped in scams. Sometimes you may have unknown friends who maybe hackers, criminals, terrorists who can do cyber-crime from your details. For example if they have to contact their friend they will send a E-mail from your account and if the E-mail is caught then you will be suspected.
As we all know that a good health is a wealth. Dear friends… social media also affects
our health, when we are busy in social media and other stuff we become lazy, we miss on
outdoor activities, we become weak, we lose stamina. Also the harmful rays from electronic
appliances affect our eyes. Social media can also cause brain and personality disorders in
Social media is also responsible for killing the relations. People living in the same house
are even unaware that what is going on in their own house. Their contribution to their
family activities, house work is reducing with alarming pace. Social networking sites
attracts people to spend more time online and less time interacting face to face. Now a
days,children are lacking real conversation skills as they are indulged more in texting
rather than oral conversation. It can be harmful for their career also as they will not be
able to pass interviews.
In the last I would like to conclude that social media is not a devil but the extent of
its use make it devil and disastrous for human civilization. My advice to my fellow friends
is to be composed/controlled to use ‘Social Media’ and do not let ‘Social Media’ to
control you and your fate.
Thanks a lot to read and review my thoughts. Please share your views on the write-up.
