The Pros and Cons of Social Media

Social media is always the subject of debate. There are pros and cons.

A pro: Imagine trying to get through this pandemic without Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Zoom keeping us connected while forced to isolate.

One good thing about social media is how it confirms we’re never alone. There’s always someone out there. And we can also be there for someone else.

How we use social media is up to us, so choose positive over negative interaction.

It’s helpful to avoid conflicts and seek out new friends to unite with versus people who want to argue and divide us.

Rather than disliking somebody’s post, why not find things to like? The recipient of your positivity will appreciate it.

Social media is not a problem unless you choose to make it one. Just like in real life, don’t go looking for trouble.
