Expression Through Social Media (good/bad)
Debate Rounds (3)
We use it to communicate almost instantaneously and it is the perfect way to communicate from anywhere in the world. It allows us to spread information fast, which is important or useful for almost everyone. Without it, we could be waiting hours, days or even weeks for news to spread across the globe.
Although Social Media could become a rude distraction and could be used negatively, the positives DEFINITELY outweigh the negatives. We can talk to our friends and colleagues instantly and can keep up to date with information fast.
Many people must agree with me when the number of people on Facebook exeeds 1 billion users...
Information can be opened for the world to see at the touch of a button, making it the perfect tool for receiving the latest, most important news. It allows freedom of expression and information to the outside world when your government suppresses information. You can communicate to your loved ones in an instant. You can share your thoughts and beliefs when you usually couldn't.
You are using a Social Media now. 58% of people use Social Media, 98% of 18 - 24 year olds are ALREADY using Social Media (according to statisticbrain.com).
Social Media is a very useful tool. I know I wouldn't like to give it up.
It is an distraction from activities such as driving, studying ,working and more. The reason for the many people on social media is called 'fear of missing out' aka FOMO. This phenomenon is a form of social anxiety. People are worried or concerned about major events that occur in real life while being afraid of missing out on information.
