    "Social networking are good for our society, it allows to talk with new person who are shy and they can have new friends.
    It's good to have opinions on new photos.
    On istagram we can follow true stars but on other social networking like facebook there are fakes user.
    We can see fashion thanks to brands oficial pages like Adidas and Nike.
    For persons who like playing games, on facebook there are lots of games for them.
    So social networking is good for lots of persons with diferent personalities."

      "I see what you are saying but do you enjoy talking face to face with a person more than just texting? I do. With all of those reasons Facebook can be a giant distraction from work. False information spreads like wildfire on the internet this makes it harder for people to trust what they read."

    "Social networking has had a positive outcome on our society.
    We can meet new people.
    We can find former friends.
    Social networking can help when someone is missing, we search information about the persons and arrest the person.
    When we are bored, we can chat with people, post pictures...
    We can share videos, photos, music with our family and friends.
    But some people say that social networks can be dangerous because we can also meet bad people like pedophiles.
    Moreover, some people may insult and harass people who are handicapped, or not physically perfect.
    And people may become depressed or commit suicide.

    But, if we are careful, social medias can be cool and useful."

      "That is very debateable, especially since alot of times, with the "best way to have life", as you put it, it is wrong, since alot of times, we need actual social contact. How can you have a contact with a lie or fantasy? Think about it. I mean, there is no real contact with those things, and on top of that, how do you know the person you are having contact with is actually who they say they are? How do you know the person behind that computer isn't someone who bullied you in real life, and is looking for a new way to do that? You can't be involved with a thought, and many times, the social media is filled with stealing pictures, and lies, and worse, people who find a new way to harass you, pretending to be friends with you. Sure, some do it in real life, but at least in real life, you can call them out on it. Social networking websites aren't a good thing in reality..except if you are a band or singer, it might be a good way to get cheap publicity, but that is all they are really good for, nothing more or less. It's NOT, I repeat, NOT one of the best ways to communicate. Real life is the best way, especially since there, you can have something that online doesn't give you, and that will be ACTUAL contact. Something to think about."

    "In my view social networks are good for our society. Take young artists as an example: Singers can share their voice with the world, without having a record contract. Many young artists can show their projects on youtube for example. Nature conservation projects can also be shared and many people can see them."

    "I think social networks are good for our society because they give you the possibility to communicate with everyone you want to and they are good for globalization too. But there are also some dangers and too many problems with privacy and the information business for example everyone can search for you in the internet and with illegal programs they can see everything about you what can cause you some very difficult problems with everyone you know. Another problem is cyberbullying, for example someone can be bullied for a long time without anyone knowing about it and that can be very dangerous for a person who can't defend himself but the public is fighting against it. Despite all the cons I think social networks are more good than bad for our society."

      "That is not entirely true, because it is done via computer, and you may/will never meet that person you claim to be "socializing" with in person, and for all you know, they might catfish you.

      You can never be too safe, and people do lie online, and since translation gets lost in text, it is hard to tell what they are really meaning and/or saying. So, there kind of blows your argument, since you never know who you are truly dealing with online. Anyone can pretend to be anyone online, and we all know that they will never reveal who they truly are, so asking does no good. Try again."

And, now a days many people do this via. phone, and many platforms give you the option to facetime, call, or voice chat. So you can know very well who you are talking to and if they are a catfish."

    "Social networking sites are good because some people use their social medias pages as a business, such as babysitting page or photography,(etc.) Social media may be the only way they can promote their businesses because its FREE! Also its free to contact them and easier to find their page because you can search them more easily the trying to find a real business out in the streets. Social networking is used as a advantage for some people who truly use the social medias for their purpose."

    "Wow. I've read through most of the comments on this and not a single one seems to have a decent sense of grammar. I'm here to remedy that. Here is why social media has a positive effect on our society:
    1) It allows people to overcome their social fears.
    Social media can be used by people with social anxiety in ways they might be terribly afraid to do otherwise. I would be afraid to stand up in front of all the people who've left a comment on this site, but here I'm capable of expressing my opinions.
    2) It helps spread news quicker. Most people learn about news via social media.
    3) It helps stop crime. Many police departments have been using it to see if suspects have bragged about their crimes online.

    Many people are also saying that social media isn't the same as human interaction. This is true, but social media often leads to human interaction. I use it to figure out times to meet up with my friends.

    I've also heard people say that it's a waste of time. This just makes no sense. Watching TV is a waste of time. Many books could be considered a waste of time as well. People need time to lay low and destress, and if social media does that for someone, who are you to judge them for it?"

      "Yeah, imagination is also a great way to escape reality. Fact of the matter is, you DON'T meet people on social media, or other things. It doesn't really give you much, as far as that goes, because the fact of the matter is, you can be on TONS of social media, and not really get anywhere with it. I understand that the new way is to go online and meet people, but does it REALLY work? Think about it for a few minutes. You will never see the real person in real life, due to so many people using fake pictures, and you never know if the person you are talking to was the same person you met some time ago, that you didn't like. Internet and computers won't give you social contact, since the bottom line is, it doesn't do much. Sure, it can occupy your time, and maybe give you a distraction from everyday ho-hum things, but it will never replace real life, and real life is unfortunately, where we live. How can social media replace actual, physical contact? Sure, sometimes, internet is better than real life, but the bottom line is, computers, as much as they advance, can never take the place of actual face-to-face contact. Try again. :)"

      "There will be a moment, when you will have to communicate face to face. You can't live in a fantasy world forever, especially since a computer can't do everything for you, as well as imagination and thought. I agree, you can simply not go on. I don't, with the exception of one or two places, maybe three at the most, but social media doesn't replace actual physical interaction andor contact., and there will be a moment when that will have to happen. Can't live in a fantasy world forever. Try interacting with people little by little, or getting away, and looking at a world. Many fakers are online, and they can be as fake as they want, since they are hiding behind a computer, so you never know if the person you are interacting with is who they say they are, and from what you have mentioned about yourself, you may fall for being catfished. I hope you improve your life. Fantasy worlds aren't as great. You'' have to overcome that shyness. How you will is up to you, and you alone. :) Social media won't replace actual contact, i'm sad to tell you."

    We can also have connectivity and community possibilities, social media creates nex social connection because it connects people in a much faster and you can keep contact easily with you relatives and friends, and you can also be informed about the world news and last but not least , it can be a good way for people to raise their voice against wrong activities going around"

      "But you have to remember, ALL of those "communities" you claim that can be made are nothing more than something based on fantasia. Social media can't help you meet those same people in real life. It is like Seung Hui Cho with the imaginary girlfriend the next generation. All those people you claim to be "friends" with, are nothing more than thoughts in your own mind.

      Okay, let's say you meet someone online. It is social media, they can claim to be anyone, even a so-called "internet" celebrity, and you don't know if those particular people are telling you the truth or a bold face lie, after all, it is the internet, so since you can't see the person, the one you claim to be friends with, they can be someone trying to get their kicks by setting up a person for a joke, and not a very funny one. Watch Web of lies on ID, they are full of examples of how social media is being used to deceive people, and create a false world, where they are this and that, when in reality, they were rejected more than the wannabe popular people. Truth of the matter is, most social media is a lie. AS far as raising a voice, what good does it do, if something cannot be changed? Isn't it a waste of time, energy and interest? Food for thought"

      "How do you know the "people" you meet on there are the ones who say who they are. A lot of catfishing, and phony identities are made online. The person you meet online isn't always who they say they are 99.988% of the time. It's very easy to create a fake identity online, and because people can't see the person, you never know if the person on there is telling you lies or the truth. While it is true that people can meet "friends" online, most of the time, or a good percentage f it is all lies. You don't know if the person you are meeting on there is who they say they are. A lot of people have had some pretty terrifying experiences online with meeting people. Maybe you should re-think that statement."

    "I think that social media is a good thing for many reasons. One reason is that it is faster you can spread information faster you can tell people things if they pop up or something. The next reason is you can't advertise. So if you have job openings you can advertise also if you're running low on money then you can find a job to make money. The last thing is you can have a face to face conversation you can can face time people that don't live close to you. If you have not seen a person in a really long time you probably would want to see them face to face. In conclusion that is why I think that social media is a good thing."

    "There are many good reason why social networking is good. There should being social networking because one it helps students do better in school. It's shown that over 59% of students access to internet use by social media sites to discuss there education. There are not telling the answers they are discuss there answers. Another good reason to keep social media is it allows everyone to improve on there friendships. Over 70% of adults are using social networking sites to connect with family and friends. This is helpful because if you have a family member that is away you can still be connected. Lastly even senior citizens can feel more connected with everything. In 2010 74 year olds group showed that 4-16% of them felt better and happier when it was done. In the end I think that it's a good idea to keep social networking sites for many reason it help students improve on there education also it allows people to improve on there friendships and help senior citizens feel more connected. And that's just some of the most popular reasons. I think that social networking sites are good. What do you think."

    "With social media, it in itself has pros and cons. We, as a human society, can never make the perfect network where all are accepted and none are shunned. There will always be the trolls, the haters, and the weirdos. That doesn't mean we won't stop trying. Facebook has allowed friends that maybe haven't seen each other in years to reconnect. Twitter allows the spread of news faster than possibly any other system in history. And while these networks have their flaws, we're working around them. As a result, I remain hopeful for social media, and the human society as a whole."

      "Good for you, but it hasn't done that for everybody, because of whatever reason, so I have to wholeheartedly disagree with you on said subject, because for people, many social media sites have been a failure, but it depends on what it is that you are trying to achieve by using it. I doubt it would make a "good" living as you so have graciously stated it, since you tube is mostly or should we say 99.98% free, and gives people a chance to learn some things, or use it as an artistic outlet, but the bottom line is, it won't grant you a decent living. I'm sorry to say, but unless it is used as an outlet, I am sad to say it won't be a good investment, since it isn't a serious podium for money, only for entertainment, and maybe some artistic expression or at the most optimistic, a place to vent out things that either go on in your day, or just to have people make asses out of themselves for potential public humiliation. Good luck to you"

    "Social networking sites are bad, but you have to think. In this day and age, everything around us poses a risk. Getting rid of it all isn't always the best solution. Social networking has its pros and cons just like anything else. Instead of focusing on banning it all, why don't we start teaching children to be smart when using sites. There are things we can do to prevent the negative things associated with social media, from happening. Getting rid of social media is foolish considering all of the positive effects it has had on our society. Negative effects have impacted us too, but that goes with just about anything. I just don't believe flat out banning websites is a logical solution. Life is full of risks, that's just how it is and how it always will be."

We can post photos , comment them, share them, and like too. This is very great because it is easy to use and it's free.
    -But there is a little problem.
    You must be careful about the information you give on the social networks, i think it is uncomfortable because there maybe photographs of you and you don't know. It can sometimes be dangerous.

    "Social networking allows anyone to create blogs. This allows people to put their creativity out to the world and helps communication grow. People can also create podcasts, videos, and gaming systems. Some of the best blogging sites are YouTube, Tumblr, and Blog.com.

    Expanding peoples online connections through sharing interests can make people become more diverse. According to AAP Gateway, communication is an important step for all adolescents and increases the opportunity for respect, tolerance, and increased discourse about personal and global issues.

    Social networking has totally the world for politics. Candidates can now stay connected to the people with tweeting things instantly with hash tagging and promoting. Also, according to Fox 5, social networking 'can make these races much more fun to watch because you are not only watching, but you feel like you are participating. Live tweeting debates, hearing immediately from viewers and also watching the trends, hashtags and sometimes brutal responses unfold in real-time make politics today so different from races pre-social media.' Everyone is connected 24/7."

    "I feel like people based their life off of likes or favourites, retweets...etc. They're devoting their whole life on social media rather than getting out there and living. I know this because I am a teenager and I was once devoted to social media, but that only made me realise I was missing out on beautiful things that are going on in the world. So many people use social media to escape real problems, and of course, this is a huge problem. We'd rather tweet about personal problems rather than handle them ourselves, we look for sympathy from these websites, PITY. Social media has trained our minds to think that what we need to carry on in life is stupid likes or favourites. People need to open their eyes and get out there."

      "I never did, as far as myself goes. With things like art, I have to agree that it is easier to get it out there, be it endless selfies, or videos, whatever have you, but as far as likes go, if life has taught me one painful lesson after another, it is this: If something is meant, or someone is meant to be popular, it will happen, either online or in real life. Most people DON'T base their popularity on that, but some of your statements on it, I do agree with, such as devoting their whole life on. I agree to an extent, but people do other things also. I know I do. It only is that if people talk one on one, it still is, but on a computer, where you can vent things. I agree they also use it to escape problems, but maybe they are using it as a distraction from the every day. There is beauty in this world, I agree. Sometimes, it is better to have a place more to vent out frustration, just like in the old days, when people used a diary to vent their frustration, it is now on a computer or a blog. I was once sort of devoted to it, but I agree, it is not the great thing that some, and I say SOME people make of it, but more of a place for drama. Just offering a viewpoint."

    "No, it isn't, but then again, it depends on what you want to get from it, and which one works for you. Often, with people they often want to use it to get famous as have many artists, only to realize that it was a dismal failure. On the other hand, for some it works. I personally don't like it, because it leads to something I heard for the first time in one in 2013 "joke subscribers". They do it, because they know you can't do anything to them physically, so it adds an element of bravery to cowards. Now, if you are an artist, the reason you don't get help from it, is because legitimate businesses don't pay attention to you, unless you already have a following, and how can you get a legitimate following on things like that, unless you had one to begin with? Social media might have been good for some, and I say SOME people, but the fact of the matter is, it doesn't really do anything for society. Sure, some have gotten famous and or a following from it, but did it really do anything for anyone else? I doubt it. No, I am not bitter or anything, but maybe like so many others, I myself have experienced the dark side of that, and maybe it was a different experience for me, but I have to side with the antis on this, because it is true."

      "It's kind of hard to tell if you are being sarcastic, or trolling or what, but if I genuinely won you on the con side, okay. Truth of the matter is, it is true. Yes, some people buy fake followers, which is good or bad, depending on how you look at it, but in reality, it isn't really worth using some places. It is better to be selective, and just do what you do. Some people's motive to use it is for friends and stuff, but the fact of the matter is that it is like having a group of imaginary friends. Sure, it might ease some things, but it doesn't really aelp you, and often makes you feel worse than better after a little while. Best to communicate in reality. Beats the alternative."

    "Social networking websites are at best, and this is polite, a sham, in the sense of community. Why do you ask? Because they DON'T I repeat, DON'T really promote community. Let's face facts, shall we? How do you know that the people on there who claim they are friends of yours aren't the same person under different profiles, pretending to be friends with you, when they aren't. Also, people have been stalked via those places.

    They lead to cyber bullying, because they turn people who have been picked on more than Seung Hui Cho, and Eric and Dylan into tough people, because you can't do anything to them. (Remember the story with Megen Meier?)

    In conclusion, it might be good if you are promoting like a band, or maybe a movie, but outside of that, it will never be able to replace actual social face to face contact. Fact of life.

    Besides, with the pictures you see, how do you know the person you like on there actually looks like what they say they do, right? Something to think about."

    "Love and relationships:
    It can make problems to use WhatsApp in relationships, because you don't always know what your partner really means. You can't see his body language and also you cannot hear the sound of his voice. It is important to often make conversation in the old-fashioned way, because it's better to communicate in this wise.
    Artists and entertainment:
    The news often report about stars. But it is not always positive. More frequently there come negative comments about many stars. It can hurt them. The reasons why I think that’s fault, that the press make negative news about everything. Everyday things are criticized like the clothes from stars or the education from their children.
    Work: employers :
    When you have inappropriate photos in your Facebook ,twitter... profile, it may happen that you dismissed. Things that you won't share with your coworkers can be accidently published for the whole world."

Pedophiles, dangerously low grades impacting our students and children, unhealthy addictions, inactiveness, promoting the unhealthiness of low self esteems, the dangerous and risky security concern, intrusion of privacy, and hate crimes (cyber bullying). Social media cons have outweighed the pros by a whole new level. We humans are greedy and have a instinct for breaking rules, 56% of our children population have a social media behind their parents backs, families are being pulled apart. Its chaos, honestly.

A 13-year old girl committed suicide after being bullied online from her neighbor pretending to be a boy on Myspace. At the time there were no laws regarding the legality of cyber bullying and the perpetrator was held with no charges. According to stopbullying.gov, the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics indicates that 7% of students in grades 6-12 experienced cyber bullying. On the website they also state the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey finds that 15% of high school students (grades 9-12) were electronically bullied in the past year. Every US state has a policy,law for cyberbully
    There are signs that people are now addicted to social media. A study by the University of Chicago found that social networking can be more addicting than cigarettes and alcohol. On the website RTE News, they state that 'signs of addiction include spending more than five hours per day on a social media website.' And 'likes and re-tweets give users a burst of the addictive neurotransmitter dopamine, while a lack of endorsements can provoke jealousy and anxiety.'"

      "ANYTHING can bring jealousy. This might come as a surprise to thee, but jealousy has existed since the beginning of mankind itself. Same as with anxiety. What provokes jealousy is often insecurity for whatever reason. People are addicted to social media on SOME level, but the reason is often based on ficticious liking, or fulfilling something that is often lacking in real life, due to people's paranoia. So on that part, it is something that people do to themselves. Sometimes it is the way to vent anger that we could't or wouldn't have the guts to do in real life. All those are valid reasons jealousy may happen, but the bottom line is that it is all ficticious and nothing more. I don't use websites like face book and twitter anymore, since I find it a waste of time, and quite frankly didn't do anything for me really, except bring more aggravation, but you are right with the cyber bullying. People with very few exceptions spend a lot of time on "social media", since it isn't really having anything, and it is hard to get yourself out there with it, since unless you are known, nobody will really pay much attention to you, so people are right, it IS a waste of time, but to each their own."

    "Although social media does work for communicating quickly and staying in touch it's not the same as communicating face to face or even talking on the phone. Because while you may get the words you want across the tone of voice and body language are unknown to the recipiant. Even by just listening to a persons tone of voice on the phone gets more of the message across. I'm not saying that we should get rid of social networking sites, that would be ridiculous to do so, I'm saying that maybe we shouldn't rely so much on social media."

      "True, and often, you have to wonder about one thing, how do we know that the so-called "friends" we made on social media are who they say they are. Watch Web of lies, especially the episode entitled "catfished", and you will see the dark side of something such as that, and how it almost cost one person their life, because of someone else's anger and deception of a person somewhere else. Truth of the matter is, social media is a sham, and at best, it never helps society as a whole. Sure, the original intentions of such places was to re-unite people with long lost whatever, but in the end, what did it REALLY bring, correct? Answer, it brought on an extreme amount of misery and pain. For some, it turned into a positive experience, I don't deny that, but for the majority, we can't side with that, since it brought us misery. I would say to people disagree if you want, but you know we are right in that. So, in conclusion, the cons have it right, since many of us don't agree with social media. Besides, I wouldn't call this site "social media", since it isn't really in the sense of it, such as facebook, or twitter, or whatever have you, just a discussion board. Something to think about for the future."

Even tho, over the years social media has been able to spread awareness about different problems including local and global, social media has caused numerous problems itself. The increase of cyberbullying was a result of social media. With everyone always looking down at their screens, the lack of social skills is continuing to decrease. Even tho, fast information is being spread, most information is false, or a rumor. Children growing up today are spending more tweeting, and posting pictures, than getting some fresh air outside.

As far as children viewing shocking things, theycan view it on a DVD player of someone, or on demand by chance also. I do agree that social networks are a blatant waste of time, but also, if people really wanted to, they can take classes, or join a place called "meetup." (it is somewhat of a social network, but the difference is that you can meet people in REAL LIFE.)

      Most of the time, the social networks are a bunch of crap, but if you are a band who is trying to get a following, or an artist who is there for itI,then I guess it can be beneficial, but it is only a place to promote, but not for things like "friends", since you can't have imagination for a friend. It's kind of like, living in the forest by yourself, or being a hermit. Those things are just a sham, nothing more."

    "Social networks being an evolved version of the "chat room" phenomenon, continue to be a place for people to engage in "role-play" and fantasy chat, cyber sex, and other forms of sexually gratifying conduct. The proliferation of "false personation" or fraudulent identity (known in modern media as "cat-fishing") makes social media a dangerous place for both adults and minors who may engage in sexual conversation with unknown individuals. An adult believing he or she is speaking with a false personation (catfish) profile of a younger person is at strong risk of being wrongfully convicted of a sex crime - earning them time in jail, irreparable damages socially and financially, severe negative impacts on family and psycho-emotional wellbeing, as well as lifetime registration as a sex offender. A minor speaking with a false personation of an adult is at risk of cyber-stalking, exposure of the minor's friends to a potentially dangerous adult, as well as risk to their own safety and privacy. These issues are not likely to be addressed nor resolved by society or legislation, as they are in an abstract and taboo domain, and very few have a pressing or vested interest in the result for either party, actual or hypothetical - in the future."

One of the reasons why I'm on the con side is because young girls and boys are under such pressure to maintain unrealistic body types. Social media enforces the 'thin is beautiful' idea. This can lead to low self-esteem and eating disorders.

    Grooming is another con to social media. We're all vulnerable on social media but, kids and teenagers are even more. We are naive. As well as this, bullying is a massive one. I was bullied on Instagram for a while. Every time I posted I was swarmed with homophobic comments in my comment section. Bullying is really common and I don't think we realise how common it is. It can lead to mental health issues and suicide."

      "As far as body image, that has more to do with what we see in television, movies, music videos, magazines, etc. So, on that part, it was around since the beginning of whatever, Ryan. People are vulnerable, because of life circumstances, or because of something they can't help. Sorry you got homophobic comments. What people need to understand is that those who attack someone, they do it, because they don't show their faces, and can be braver, but when they are confronted face to face, they won't be as beligerant.as they are, since they can hide behind a computer.

      What people need to understand is that there will ALWAYS be those who disagree not, for whatever reason, but that has something to do with THEM, not YOU. IMagine if they were trying this in real life, they would get a lot worse than they give online. Remember what Tony Robbins said in the movie "Shallow Hal": Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Truer words were never spoken. Watch the movie, and it will really change your outlook. :)"

    "No, they aren't very good. As I stated in previous arguments, they don't really promote community. As much as technology has advanced, and made in some levels life easier, there is no substitution for one on one physical contact, and many times, it makes life a hell of a lot worse for people. How, it doesn't improve social skills, it doesn't help with shyness, since you are only having imaginary friends so to speak, like little kids do, and it is often a very infantile substitute for the fact that people are now more sheltered than ever, so they don't have any real contact with people. I want to ask pros one question: How does it make social contact easy or help you with real life? You can't fall in love with a thought, you can't have an imaginary image like you, or feel anything. It is all fantasia, and fantasia can't meet you, it can't help you, and many times, it's the only thing these sites bring. It's the truth, people. Nothing really good, depending on what you are seeking, has ever come from social media sites, unless you are looking for some kind of fantasy that will only be a fantasy. We all need real life contact, and I am sad to say, social media will never give it to you. Have a great 2018 and beyond. Peace out."

    "Social media in my personal opinion is highly over rated, and here is the reason why:
    First off, the people you talk to. How do you know they are who they say they are? I mean, the pictures they use, they often steal from places such as fan sites, or on profiles, claiming to be so and so, and in reality, they are a person who you would NEVER want to associate with in real life. People often fall in love with the "fantasy person", only to find out the person in reality isn't what you expected to be.
    Second, the social media doesn't really give you much, as far as the following goes, because what has happened a lot of the time, is when you are making videos, and you see people subscribing to them, many times, they are people using different profiles, but are the same person, so the truth of the matter is, it isn't a real following, and often you get set up for humiliation.
    Finally, it gives people a false sense of security in the sense that they have "friends", but in reality, they are following as a joke.

    So, in conclusion, social media sites aren't really worth it, unless you are thick skinned, or someone who doesn't really care if they are getting something or not. Food for thought."

Married couples spend their relax time on social media networking sites rather than watching television as a couple or enjoying each other's company. Most People in society are so addicted to updating their twitter or Facebook status that it interferes with family time."

      "Test grades drop due to students neglecting their work.
      Fix: Parents enforce time limits and students take responsibility for their grades.
      Criminals use it to commit their crimes.
      Fact: The government also uses it to track criminals. Plus a majority of people on social media aren't criminals.
      It is bad for your health.
      Fix: Don't use it for hours at a time, use it in proper lighting, and make sure the text is large enough to read comfortably."

    "I think that facebook is dangerous for our society because it's not real life, it's virtual world because we don't know the people we are chating with. Facebook can provoke rapes, harrasing, suicides because we don't know the real identity of the people, they can be dishonest. People who use networking sites are prone to sociale isolation."

    "Against social networks
    Do you have an account on any social network? Well, if you do, I'm here to tell you why I think social networks are a bad idea.
    The first reason is because it spreads false information. On September 5, 2012 false information spread about a fire, shoot out, and gunmen on Twitter and Facebook sending police into a panic, with over 3000 phone calls.
    My second reason is because of the lacking privacy. 13 million Facebook users had not set or not know about Facebook privacy settings and 28% shared all or nearly all of their photos publicly.
    My third reason is students tend to get lower grades. Students who use social media have an average GPA of 3.06 when non-users have a GPA of 3.82 and students who use social media also have a 20% lower score on tests.
    In conclusion, I do not support the idea of social networks because it spreads false information, lacks privacy, and causes students to get lower grades. What decision do you support?"

      "There is always telephone and postal mail, and since planes work every day, you can visit some areas. Why use a computer. You'd be better off talking to yourself and/or having imaginary friends. Now, think about it. It really doesn't do anything for society, in the sense of, you're never going to have actual interaction., No matter how much technology has advanced and/or evolved, it will NEVER take the place of actual physical contact. Sad to say that social media is an in justice to society.

      Have a great 2018 and beyond. Peace out."
