Social Media - A Good Thing or a Bad Thing? Yes. The reason I think social media is good for kids is because it shows ways to express themselves, and is a good way for communication. Social media has made it possible for like minded individuals to discuss important topics, widen their personal knowledge and discover things they never knew before. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others are a cost effective means of spreading the word and getting support. You might find your old pals...

First of all, people spend more time on technology than anything else. According to the researchers at the University of California, San Diego, "At home, people consume 12 hours of media a day on average when an hour spent with, say, the Internet and TV simultaneously counts as two hours. That compares with five hours in 1960." People would check their social media, play games and surf on the Internet many times a day.

I think that they should be. Yes, they might be fun, but only until it sets someone's feet on fire. It is reported that there were at least 77 hoverboard accidents that happened in the first 5 days since Christmas. One hoverboard destroyed a $1 Million dollar home located in Nashville, Tennessee on February 10th. The house held a Mother, Father, and a Son and a Daughter. They got out alive, but with burns and no shelter or food. Hoverboards have also exploded. These items cost at most $10,000 de...

Is Social Media helpful/useful?

Legend6321
Ssosme

In recent months and years, social media had been a cause of major controversy. This is a result of the conflict between two sides, privacy and publicity. These two sides have been gaining heat, especially in the eyes of the government and within the public. Social media is not useful and/or helpful because it lowers our personal ability to reason, socialize face-to-face, and takes away from precious time with family....

Should the government give wireless internet to everyone?

anna.h
nicnacpatttywack

I believe the government should not give wifi/wireless internet to everyone because not everyone may need it. I do think it can be useful for some people but the rich do not need this charity. It would be merely wasting the government's money that could be used for other causes....
