    Nowadays it is quite often seen that people prefer to use social media as a means to communicate with each other or be informed about any news rather than using letters or newspapers etc for the same. This essay will examine the advantages and disadvantages of using social media and provide a logical conclusion.

    The two main advantages of using social media are easy way to keep touch with people and benefits in terms of grabbing job opportunity.Firstly, it has become convenient for people to remain in touch with people who may have been out of touch for a long time. For instance, social networking sites such as facebook ,whatsapp provide variety of ways through which people can communicate either through text, call or video call to one another present in any country . Secondly , people tend to find new jobs opportunities now in most effective manner . For instance , sites such as LinkedIn,, Monster provides an efficient way for people to look out for jobs and apply in most effective manner .

    However ,social media has some major disadvantages like inclination in the criminal activities and also lack of physical activity especially in young generation . Many people tend to engage in crimes through social media . For instance , drugs supply is one of the major issues that has impacted many lives. Also nowadays , young people totally depend on their phones such as browsing over to different social media sites just for the fun part. For instance, it is seen that younger people hardly exercise or does any kind of physical activity because of huge impact caused by social media.

    To conclude, although social media can have certain negative effects like no physical exercise/movement in today’s generation and increase in criminal activities, it has extremely positive influence on country’s economic growth by providing job opportunities and fastest medium for communication.I believe that these benefits of social media outweigh its drawbacks.
