Ever wondered what folks turn to first thing in the morning after getting up, even before answering the call of nature?
Yes! You guessed right! They browse Social Media on their gadgets.
I’m sure we all have already come across much negativity by society pertinent to over-usage of Social Media by youngsters. For instance, it is reiterated that users hardly have any time for family as they stay busy on SM. Folks do not bother about recreational physical activities. Students care less for studies, and obviously; waste a whole lot of time on futile activities. And it goes on and on.
With all due respect, it remains an undeniable fact that we often ignore the significance of stuff due to inability to see things beyond certain horizons as we hardly attend to the other side of the picture.
Let’s underscore a few of the stunning advantages of Social Media through an entirely unique spectacle.
LinkedIn: It is for the industry professionals for the most part. Users can:
Twitter: It is best for microblogging as it restricts the length to 140 characters only.
Google Plus: It assumes somewhat identical status in people’s routine as does Facebook.
YouTube: Folks can use their personal or company’s video channels to pile up subscribers to earn money online through advertising agencies like Google and others.
English is the key to success now-a-days. It is observed that those who stand engaged on Social Media stand better chance to improve their language skills, both written and spoken, than those who do not.
All Social Media platforms are equally essential to share users’ viewpoints on any idea, incident or issue which receive tons of evaluations or feedback from respondents. It helps in advanced understanding within community in order to bring people closer to one another.
History tells us, Social Media played pivotal role in bringing change in communities (Arab Springs) where traditional media was facing curbs. Social Media, there became, the voice of underprivileged and disadvantaged sectors of society.
