People on social networking sites share what interests them, such as news on current events. People who share those interests, or who just want to stay informed, can read these stories and share them as well. Eventually, these stories make their to users who may have never read them. Since stories are shared through "word of mouth," smaller news outlets such as blogs can get exposure, and social network users are overall connected to a larger pool of new information and opinion.
Social networking sites are helping us to keep in touch with each other and learn information that we need. However, it needs to be utilized judiciously. When it takes over one's life as it typically does, then it is no longer beneficial and theatens to undermine true and personal social interaction with others.
Social networking sites are beneficial to human interaction. This is because of the fact that social networking sites promote the very thing that they are named after: social networking. Social networking sites only increase human interaction. People are more connected now than ever, and they only prove to be beneficial to human interaction.
Social media is literally just looking at pictures the whole time. People will waste numerous hours liking photos on Instagram when they could be doing something productive, like going outside and playing a game with friends. Some people that have good grades and those grades turn into D's or F's.
I do not believe that social networking sites are beneficial to human interaction. I think that social networking can help you stay in touch with people you may not normally stay in touch with, but overall I would not say it's beneficial. I think there are a lot of draw back to social media.
Social networking sites are impersonal and they are not good for human interaction. People cannot communicate realistically through social networks. These websites are commercial ventures which seek to earn a profit rather than provide a necessary service to people. In the end, people spend more time alone behind a computer.
I believe that social networking sites are not beneficial to human interaction. Some people become some so engrossed and addicted to them that they spend all their time checking the Facebook or Twitter. People need face to face interaction to have meaningful social interaction. People are becoming more isolated with social network sites.
Social networking sites are not beneficial to human interaction. When people use these sites, they are setting themselves up for failure. Often on these sites, fake information is given, warping the other person's perception. This causes fake identities and people to show up, causing unrealistic expectations to occur and ruining human interaction.
As someone who has frequented social networking sites for around 7 or 8 years, I have to say that in my experience it only hurts human interaction. It is nice that you can see friends you knew in high school or make entirely new friends. The question is, how often to you interact with those people in a meaningful way? The answer is, pretty much never!
