Pro

social media would be a good thing to have because you can use it to communicate with friends and family that are far away for free.

Con

Social media has many pros and cons to it but I believe that there are more cons. Let me go over a few of the cons.
First, people who use social media tend to have lower grades in school. This is not good. Because social media can be addicting, people can spend more time on social media than they should. Studies have shown that the average GPA of social media users is 3.06, while the GPA average of non social media users is 3.82. This is a significant difference.
Another reason social media is not a good thing is because some people who use social media can have personality and brain disorders. This is a serious problem. people can have narcissistic personality disorder because of social media.
Another reason social media is not a good thing is because criminals use it to commit crimes. They can recruit members to a gang using social media. In fact 78 percent of crimes committed were used through social media.
Another reason social media is not good is because it leads to stress offline. A study showed that people who use social media are more likely to have problems with relationships later in life.
The final reason social media is not a good thing is because it enable cheating on school assignments. There were several stories of people using social media to send pictures of test questions to each other to cheat on the test.
In conclusion, social media is not a good thing. It creates too many problems and too many risks.
