Social media allows instant communication and transfer of ideas. It allows people to contact each other no matter where on Earth they are or how long they've been separated.

Exploitation is just a side-effect. If you invent any technology, people will use it to slack off and jerk off. It's like giving toys to monkeys.

It's initial intent was to inform the public of events occurring in both their community and around the world. However, now it's used as a form of Social control by the Government and large Corporations. It's all Doom and Gloom and needs to be removed from our daily routines.

Social media does not have an intent, any more than fire has an intent. It is a product category that has a market. The individual products have plans by which they hope to succeed. DDO was originally intended to attract people who like to debate, for example. I think that overall the good of social media outweighs the bad, because the benefits of worldwide interaction are so strong. The mechanisms to fight abuse are lagging. For example, it would be useful if there were a mechanism for positively identifying social media users on a voluntary basis, similar to the caller ID system on telephones. then users could refuse to accept solicitations without positive ID, and there could be dedicated sites that refuse to admit unidentified participants. Also, software could be written to identify harassment and notify site managers -- again, on a voluntary basis for particular sites. The idea is to establish islands of relative safety on the web. I saw a news report of a dating site that runs background checks on participants. That's the right idea.

Like anything else of the Net, social media is what you do with it. To the people who do nothing all day but take selfies and post inane updates about what they had for lunch, it's a way to stroke their egos and show off for their friends. For those who upload articles and memes they like, it's a way of sharing a common interest with others and hoping to find that kindred spirit among them.

First of all, i would like to suggest one point that is " Always catch good things not bad". Social media is created to communicate with each other and share ideas on all over the world. Its established to increase knowledge around the world and improve communication skills.

What is the point of social media

To waste epic amounts of time not going outside and actually socializing with people.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

The point of social media is to get noticed in the virtual world. Make your or your business presence notable so that you get renowned and it gets easy for the viewers to know you.
There are different social media platforms that allow you to promote yourself and your business so that you can get hold of the target audience online.
Social media helps us connect to another part of the world just by clicking.

Social networking sites are increasingly used to keep up with close social ties. The average user of a social networking site has more close ties and is half as likely to be socially isolated as the average American. Facebook users are more trusting than others. Facebook users have more close relationships.

If 'the point' is defined as that which makes its usage so popular, I would say the main reason is that it breaks down physical dominance barriers.

In the outside world being social requires not only your mind but also a physical presence, that is, your success in these social situations also depends a lot on primitive physical behaviors (if not mostly).

Social media is a way of socializing that removes this (to a degree) as an imposition to your ability to function well socially.

Being that this in itself is a form of social media, it is very clear to see that their are many points to it. It just all depends on the user(s) and how they choose to manipulate the media.

What is the point of social media

The number one purpose is to waste time doing mindless BS that requires no skill, talent or effort. Number two is to avoid doing things that require effort talent or skill. Number three is to look at porn or find links to porn. Number four is to post narcissistic pictures of yourself. That about covers it.
