    Hi everyone.

    I would like to say something about social networking sites. Every coin has two sides. That’s why each and everything represent itself goodly or badly.

    First of all, I’m telling positive side of Social Networking sites. Nowadays, people are using different sites of social media such as Facebook, Instagram etc. By using these sites they connect to each other and share their knowledge. They increase their knowledge. Sometimes they are happy or sad. They get a platform to express their emotion. We know that we can’t hold emotion inside, we wanna express our emotion in front of someone. If anyone has no relatives, no friends in real life they create relationships with people.

    By using the social site we post photos, information about anything, advertising etc. If we want whatever information of any subject, we can get. In the past day, we got an error in anything then we had gone to the library and search different books then we got the solution then we removed the error. But know we get solution of any problem. We can save a lot of time.

    As well as these sites have bad sides also. Increase crime in cyber. Now people are addicted of mobile phones. They waste their time on unimportant things. Different health issues occur like headaches, eyes disorder, physically weak because they don’t get time for sport.

    Thank you.

    Social media is a way of exchange our ideas, thought and increase our knowledge. We have well awareness of what happening around us . In these days social media is our part of life where we can find everything which we want or for well awareness.
    Social media alert us before any bad condition(storm, cyclone) comes so we can go safe place before happened big harm and save ourselves.

    But in these days #addiction is a major harmful issue . It is mother of all another harmful effect ,it generate harms like selficide, insomenia, depression , alonlyness and much other disease.
    Because of social media we forgotten our many goodness like leadership, self confidence, construction,out door games , fit & healthy body etc.
    Some youngsters lost his/her connection with relatives and family members .
    Some employees lost his employment as a bad experience in work and always busy with social media.
    70% of citizen have multiply social sites and they have spend many time to apdate all sites & don’t aware about his parents and family members.
    On the social sites many people spread false information
    Due to whose people take wrong decision and killed many people.
    mob lynching is the worst example of false information on social media.

    According to me social media is a great boon of our society , everything is a good side and bad side as a human being we have to decide which one we will take good one or bad one. Nowadays social media is very strong most of the people they have registered their name in the social media, within a second message can spread with thousands and thousands people if it is good purpose then it’s ok but many times we see its use for bad purpose and fake news comes and people enjoy. Youths registered their profile in different social media and update several times in the day. As a result they wastage their time , they are absent minded from their study but their valuable time they waste when they should study and they have get good marks and they have to start their career in a proper manner. Secondly peoples are busy with their smartphone they don’t care about their family members. Third one they have addiction without without this they can’t manage I e they have access their mobile upto late night they can’t sleep , even they go to the toilet they have to carry their mobile as a result people suffered various types of decease like insomnia , insecurity etc. peoples have lots of friends in social media but they don’t have proper relation. They are busy with their virtual world but when they want to come into their real life they are in trouble. Sometimes people are in trap even they cheat financially also. Sometimes they have have lost their life also .So people should use it for Good purpose.

    I think social media is a good platform for communicating with others.recently,it is estimated that approx 2.7 billion people are connected to social media.through social media people are aware about the things what is happening and what is good for them or what is bad for them.people can express their views and moreover they can understand the differences.but excessive use of social media have some negative effects they may suffer from insomnia,they will go in depression etc.this will also create terrorism and some young people who are not aware about anything they will easily get trapped by them and moreover social media also affect the study.so,I think we should make use of social media in a balanced way so that nothing gonna wrong with anyone.it will be a great boon for us.

    I think social media helps a person to communicate with the people who are sitting in the two different corners of the world rapidly at a satisfactory level.
    Social media is a good platform to nurture our hidden talent at a big level with millions of people at same time.
    Now a days we can see that #metoo campaign is attaining new heights which helps females to explore the hidden faces of the reputed persons. And thats all due to the social media.
    But besides that it also have negative points that are
    Students and youngsters usually seen to spend a lot of time on the social networking sites which leads to them to choose the wrong path and sides them from their future goals.
    Some non social elements missuse the social media and spread fake news and primes people at the name of religion and castes which is not good for unity of our country.
    People spends a good money on the internet packs.

    But if social media is used at a limited level and missuse of social media is not being done than it will be a great BOON for us.
