To add, a lot of our generation only uses it because everyone else does. However, to be brutally honest, social media is mostly incredible. We are able to share information with people across the world, which sure, you could with a text or call, but nothing connects people like social media. We have the opportunity to meet tons of new people, experience different cultures, and even share our own. Social media captures so many moments you don’t realize, and my memories are very important to me, that is why I have become so amazed by it. Honestly, social media is such an innovative, modern, and unique characteristic of our generation.
However, the majority of people today, especially teens, take advantage of it. They hide behind screens and make fun of people, just because they can, and it is disgusting. Social media was not created to bully, or to become popular with how many likes and followers you have. Social media was not invented as a game, but instead turned into one. The intention was to inspire. I say shame to those who are turning it into something ugly, because that isn’t the purpose! It is mesmerizing how much it unifies us all. Social media is a blessing.
