Social media is relatively new in the world of new communication technologies and has been presented as an exciting development that excels communication to a whole new level. As with everything in this world, with great power comes great responsibility, and sometimes that great power is turned into something not so great by those who are not responsible and careless when they use it. In my weblog essay, I will be discussing the many facets of social media and how using it can impact a young persons life. I expect there to be many cases of how popular social media sites (such as these) have negatively impacted someone’s life, as this is the most common form of news we receive, but I also aim to highlight the uses of these sights and how they can be used for good. I hope that these juxtaposing elements make for an interesting read.
