Hello I'm Jagadeesh, yeah, of course, our topic is good it is very useful now-a-days that is social media, it's like a mediator between the customer and marketing sellers. It is also useful for publishing the products, promotions advertisements etc. The free of cost we can publish our products. The main disadvantage is that is the if we want to access the internet we have pay 296 rupees for 1GB data. If we promote a product on social media it can be reached to billion people with the cheap cost that data price.

The social media will support online banking it is very useful for the present situation which is demonetization. It is processed to get any type of product in online shopping.

Hello to Everyone.

I am Prakash Samal from Bangalore. Our topic is quite interesting for all because of we all familiar with it. Now, coming to the point, as we know that It has some good and also carries the bad thing or we were experiencing badly. If I talk about the good thing then perhaps we all knew the working in Facebook or any social networking sites for eg sharing videos, moments, publishing notice etc. But if you do the things beyond your limits then that makes you crime like as posting the nasty pic etc. Lastly, I conclude that we must use it but the priority and time must take care by yourself, not by the social networking.

Social media has positive as well as negative effects. But negative effects are more than that of positive effects.

- Social media leads to addiction. Spending countless hours on social sites can divert the focus & attention from a particular task. It lowers the motivational level of the people especially teens & students.

- Kids can be greatly affected by these social networking sites if they are allowed to use them. The reason is that people share photos on social media contains violence which can damage the behaviour of kids & teenagers & teenagers involve themselves in crime related activities.

Social media has equal number of pros and cons. However I think that the effect of the cons are more dominating the pros. Let me first point out the good effects:

1. It can be used to create and maintain relationships.

2. It reduces distance between the communication.

3. It can be used for advertising products on a commercial level.

4. It can be used to organise events.

5. Finally, It is becoming one of the fastest way to propagate news among youngsters since 70% to 80% of the netizens are youths.

Now, lets take a look at the darker side:

1. Although social media can be used to build up relationships, the internet is an infinite ocean where anyone with good experience can leak out personal and private information. Your security is always at risk.

2. Even though social media was introduced to make communication more convenient, people today have reached a point where they've literally stopped communication the conventional way. Also, there has been tremendous rise in the usage of internet slang and people are slowly losing their knowledge on the English language.

3. We see a lot of products advertised on the internet. However, statistics suggest that for most of these companies that advertise, the income they get through online trajectory is way too less compared to other means. So online advertisements are not much of an effect.

4. The social media has almost replaced TVs as the primary source of entertainment. And major share goes to the memes created and posted in the social media. These memes depict in a way the current scenarios or may be something related to daily happenings and they depict them in a sarcastic way. When such things are conveyed in a sarcastic I tone, it surely affects our level of understanding of the issue.

5. This is the most negative impact of social medias on youth. We all are addicted. And it is increasingly becoming serious. We stay online most of the times literally doing nothing. It greatly affects our productivity.

In my opinion, social media cannot be defined as either good or bad.

How it turns out will be up to the person using social media be it good or bad.

Because if a person uses social media for bad things then it is bad for that person.

But if it used for something good then it is good for that person.

So it all depends on the person using social media.

But it totally depends on us how we use it in daily practice if we use it for good purpose then it is good, if we use it for bad then it is bad. But formerly social media is known for the stock of information through which we can get lots of information, ideas, thoughts and can share emotion and ideas by sitting in homes and talk to people who are living far from us. And also connected with the current news whatever happening in the country through social media.

But for me it's a boon because when one gauze social media's pros and cos, pros will be weighed high.

Social media definitely bring everyone in a single plateform to share their views, feelings emotions etc without being baised. Now a days social sites are used for professional work also. Like in whatsapp and Facebook groups are created in which day to day updates arrives, one gets task to be performed next through these sites. Many deals are being done through these medias even without a single meeting. So these are some ways by which socia media is good and has become integral part of youth's life.

Moreover one acquires a unique perspective on the life and problems of others to whom one interacts with, which is helpful in an enhancement of real life social skills.

Social networks sites are a very good platform to share idea and views. A social network means the connection of social people, in the social media people can connect their relatives, friends and with unknown people whom they never met face to face. A news spread with more than light of speed. Every organization, celebrities are directly connected to their follower and fans. And they can talk and share any updates. Social networks are only platforming to discuss any topics, any issue. Its influence on all age groups either youth or others. But for the youth they connected more people whom they never met, but they don't talk to their relatives and friends daily who are connected face to face.

Social media is just a waste of time and mental ability. No one can find it useful from starting to end. In my case, I get badly addicted of FB. In a day I probably open my FB account near about 40 times and my book near about 1 or 2. See the difference.

Social media also cause a great impact on our confidence. Generally, if any time I have ten or more messages on FB then I feel that people are becoming attracted towards me and I feel so confident whether when there is no message then I feel that I am loosing my charm and get feels so bad for me.

But this is only virtual world boy real.

In the real world, I have so many best friends who care for me a lot but due to FB and WhatsApp, I didn't get time for my real friends I realize it later. Friends I have five breakups on FB. Hahaha. By the girls which I never have seen them. How funny all that and after few days all forget. Fb relationships are not real they are only a waste of mind as well as time. Get rid of this as soon as possible.

Advantages:

Favor (Boon)

Social networks are the new way of communication for example Facebook, Myspace, Orkut and much more.

Everyone is sharing pictures, day to day activity, thoughts about issues, personal problems etc. on the social network. As well as people are communicating with each other through social networking sites. Few people are exploiting social networking sites by spying on others life. Few cases have been reported where robbers and thieves were spying on victims through social networking sites. So one should take care of what he/she is sharing on social network. Its own responsibility that to not share anything personal which can create problems.

Public sharing of private lives has not led to a rethinking of anything. It's just reminded people to use extreme caution when publicly sharing their private lives. If you wouldn't do something in front of everyone you know, don't do it on the internet.

The Internet is popular due to freedom of speech. Few groups are asking that social networking sites should be banned. If the government would ban social networking sites then the internet will not be free. People will not share their lives or communicate with others and the internet will loose its charm.

Humans are social animals by nature and social networks are just one other outlet for humans to interact. We should not look at social networks as threats but as opportunities for us to interact with people globally. I myself am an active user of social networks and have made many friends and business contacts online that I would otherwise not have had the same level of opportunity or interaction.
Against (Bane)

Social networking sites are a complete waste of time. Youth is wasting their precious time on these social networking sites so these sites should be banned.
A guy who posted a video on YouTube weightlifting, skiing, and performing karate exhibitions. He was fired from his job for showing too much Bravado.
There was one incident where robbers using user's geolocation on Facebook to find out when the target is at home or not.
Unlike other human social interactions which are transient, e.g. talking to friends over lunch etc, the Internet keeps a permanent record of what we say to each other. If you are having an online conversation with your friend(s) then you should be aware that conversation can be seen by countless others and that a record of that conversation will be kept somewhere on the Internet. Indeed, now with some social networks introducing geo-location services a record of where we go and how long we spend there will also be maintained.
Social-networking sites allow seemingly trivial gossip to be distributed to a worldwide audience, sometimes making people the butt of rumors shared by millions of users across the Internet.
Public sharing of private lives has led to a rethinking of our current conceptions of privacy.
Existing law should be extended to allow some privacy protection for things that people say and do in what would have previously been considered the public domain.
People need to be aware of the environment within which they are communicating to others. If you are discussing things in a public forum then all that information is available to everyone else in that forum. Therefore they should take a common sense approach to what they should and should not discuss. In the real world, we only talk about sensitive issues when we are in private and with people we trust. I think though that when people are online they can fall into a false sense of security because there are physically in a secure place using their computer either in their office or their home which results in them divulging information they should not.
Conclusion

The social network is indeed a boon for the human race as it is bringing people closer and letting them communicate with each other without any fear and barrier. But still, one need to be cautious of what level of personal information they are revealing on social networks.

I believe social media is good and bad.

The reasons for social media is that I believe that it is a great way to communicate and to share what you are up to, however, there are a few bad points to weigh this out. The main bad issue I think there is an addiction. Nowadays all are constantly spending time on their phones, but they don't know any different, that is just simply how they were brought up. There are issues with safety, people should always have their accounts on private and should never share personal details, but the only way, they will understand this, if they are educated how to stay safe online and what would happen if they didn't.

If they just share those ideas with the public or government they can be benefited at least. Now, even a child of KG asks for its own smartphone for playing the game in online instead getting a toy car. Moreover, the girls are more exploited in these social medias like blackmailing with morphed photos etc. They are been treated as like an opposite gender to chat or for being dated something else like that.

Without the social network, how we will know things what are happening around.?

With social networking, we will know what is happening all over the world. Social networking is like information at your fingertips. It keeps us connected with world and people who are far us. Different people use the social network in the different way a student can get knowledge, they can share their views, they get information from all over the world. Some organizations use to promote their goods. It also creates awareness among people. Everything in the world has positives and negatives even have. We have take positives and should neglect negatives and should keep going on.

Tanvi said: (Jul 24, 2016)  
Hello, folks.

This is Tanvi here.

Like everyone has said about the merits and demerits of use of social networking, I would also like to put some light on these issues.

Excessive use of social sites being like any other addiction is taking our impulse control. It has become a part of our DNA. The most important impact of it which I found nearby is Teenagers are losing their ability to communicate if not through smartphones. Recent research says that we teenagers are unprepared for the world of work where we will have to actually interact with the people outside our peer group and speak face to face with total strangers. This later results in depression, low self-esteem etc.

Another important affect of social media are it creates disturbances in life when priorities get misplaced and this affects relationships. People start comparing their relationships and partner with the social figures which leads to a drop in romance and development of problems in relationships.

Moreover, one gets influenced by the unrealistic life displayed on social media and thus pressurizes the partner to lead the life as displayed. Even social media makes people more agitated and that too after break-ups; one starts repeatedly checking and rechecking smartphone and reassures if their ex-has moved on if they are happy with the new partner if they are feeling lonely and many other reasons.

People find their online friends the real ones to share their matters rather than with their family.

And this is really very common in youth when their parents ask for some time to talk then they show negligence and avoid it citing the lack of time but on the other hand, they are using these sites on a regular basis. Journals says a billion people uses facebook on a daily basis. And one more reason which comes in the limelight these days is wade in these sites for support is also because of increasing depression in people due to one or more reasons but its excessive use might serve to boost their depression. Because one can't find the real happiness on these outlets where everyone presents a false picture of their lives with flattering selfies, images of holidays, parties etc.

One more point which I would like to add is the excessive use of social media leads to stress, low self-esteem because the lack of shares, likes also makes people feel neglected which affects their brain and health as well.

Bottom line- One needs to learn how to control one's self over the use of social media and introspect one's needs and desires. Also, social media be used in regulated time slots and one should spend quality time with family instead of mindlessly browsing or rather log out when one is upset. Use social media but do not let it take over your life.

Hi friends,

My point of view we have both Advantages and Disadvantages of social networking sites.

Because we can get tie up with our friends whom we lost some years back and also we share our pictures, thoughts, Day to day activities with the help of social networking sites. Get a chance to meet new people and share your thoughts with him/her and also get new ideas from all over the world. The main disadvantage of SNS is most of the people are wasting their precious time and postponing their works to spend on these type of sites. So we have to enlighten those people who are addicted and going to addict them.

Hello friends, my name is Rahul. In my point of views, social media plays a tremendous role in busy peoples of all over the world. Social media have both merits and demerits which completely depend on the users who can use it. 1-by using social media we can share our views, thoughts and ideas to the entire world and we must take knowledge of the other peoples. 2-in the present day all the companies used social media for promoting their products, brand sell, best offers etc. To connecting a good impression of the product and for the name of the companies. 3- In the daily life, we can see the promotion of Bollywood movies, teasures, and their game also. I mean to say Bollywood directors are also taking help of the social media for better collections for entire the world. Demerits-. 1-social media is popular due to freedom of speech. But some secular peoples shared the unwanted links. Which is in nationalism, diversity, assert, and incompatible. 2-There are few incidents where robbers using user's geo-location on facebook to find out when the target is at home or not. The 3-social network allows seemingly trivial gossips to be distributed to the worldwide audience. After that rumors created big problems.

Hi, friends.

Here I am going to share some of my points on the influence of social networks on youth.

> These days 'social networking 'is spread to each and every corner of the world.

> Today social networking sites have become the part of our daily routine, especially for youngsters.

> A recent study suggests that people spend more than five hours on an average on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

ADVANTAGES :

> Social networking sites keep the youth well informed and help them from an opinion on the current social, political and international issues.

> Social networking sites are used for various purposes like in politics, business, and technology.

> Online shopping is the best example. As we can buy anything through online. Various sites are available like AMAZON, FLIPKART, SNAPDEAL etc.,

DISADVANTAGES :

> People have become so addictive about their 'digital identities' that they forget the 'real world' surrounding them.

> Many teenagers spend sleep fewer nights on social media which causes of insomnia, mood swings, deficiency of attention in schools, and increased obesity etc.

Hi, everyone.

According to my point of view, the main objective of social networks was to get connected to the world and people who are far away from you.

But people are so busy in connecting to people who are not near them and are forgetting people around them.

Yes, useful information can be shared through social networking sites but till what extent are people really sharing.

Youth today is mainly crazy for Facebook Twitter Instagram and many.

Everything which has been created in this world will have its own pros and cons.

It depends on the people how they utilize.

Social networking sides have both negative and positive effect on today's youth.

It helped the youth in socialising at the same time created a fear of stalking and hacking.

It helped the youth to know the facts and figures but at the same time created a doubt whether is it true or not.

It also helped the youth who wanted to share their views about something at the same time ruined some lives.

Nowadays the trend finding your love is also by social networking but also created a fear of fraud and cheating or any criminal offence.

So concluding according to my opinion it has both the effects.

We are living in a busy world if we want to keep touch with our friends and relatives social networks works as a media. By using social networks we can share our ideas and knowledge to the entire world and we can gain knowledge also. For startup companies, movie promotions, and event promotions etc. Social networks play a major role.

We can communicate with celebrities by following their pages. Recently celebrities are started the live chat, by using this we can communicate directly to our favorite persons. News is passing faster than TV channels through social networks.

Social Media Plays an Important role in one's youth's life, Social media is one where group or Individuals communicate over an internet. Best example of Social Media is Facebook, It's a vast network where we are connected to our friends, relatives, colleges etc. It helps us to be in touch with our loved ones.

By social media people we get connected to world, we will be having information within a second. It's helping lots of youths to search jobs, share information among others. We even can make a groups and page of like minded people and share the ones thought's etc.

We even can get connected to Mr Narendra Modi, our respected Prime Minister and we can directly share our problems with him. There are so many Politicians, Film Actors whom we can get easily connect through Social Media.

Like Positive points, Social Media has Negative points too. One will waste lots of time spending on Facebook. By recent research it came to know that 10 out of 7 use facebook, it's just a waste of time spending lots of time on Facebook.

Conclusion: It's left to us how we take use of Social Media, it's having both negative and positive points.

As far as me consider social networking is only one of the way or medium through which a person can develop. If we take a proportion we can find 78% of all population in India using or they know about the presence of Social media. There is no concept which relates with no social media. We can live without these Facebook and twitter all that. By and large time users of Social media users actually decreasing there productivity.

But if we think deeply we can arrive at a conclusion which is really opposing this concept and spectrum. Though there is a good usage of social media but the intensity of consequence through the cyber bullying or privacy issues is much greater than that of other. What we have to do is just use networks for only for utility. Not for degrading your values.

It's medium of delivering messages and contacts. In old time we used to wait for month to get a letter written by our some relatives. But now time has changed people have become very active and well updated with latest technology. It all can be done in seconds of time.

Social Impact: Now a days if you want to know that what percentage of people of a particular country or state are connected to each other, Social media can help you a lot. It plays an important role to connecting like minded people, increasing social awareness, give you power to express your opinion by sitting at your room and with family. Now People are using it to find his life partner, new friends, old classmates etc. On the basis of latest data Aug 2015 provided by India/we are social, there are 350 million internet users are in India out of which 289 million people belongs to Urban area and 46 Million people are from Rural area which is 27% and 12% of total population of India.

If we see recent data on users of social media, there are 134 million user active on social media site and 97 million users are active on SM through mobile which is 10% and 8% of total population of India.

Political impact: Due to active involvement of common people our political leader is also using social media to connect them through Social media. Our current Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to it very wisely. He used it to connect himself with all those people. I read one of interesting and funny incidents during the election period Rahul Gandhi was criticizing about Modi and his work in Gujarat. In the next 15 min. Narendra Modi get updated with Rahul's speech and he used it in his favour by using factual data.

There was a time when children use to play physically, they used to go to playgrounds nd played with his/her friends. But today the scenario has changed. Today children are more into social network or PC games than playing physically. So, they are more into a virtual world than the real world.

Today's teenagers spend more time in chatting with strangers over social network than chatting with their relatives. And this is not only limited to only children and teenagers, even some adults are too getting addicted towards social network. This has effected drastically over their mental health. Students are scoring less because of lack of motivation that is caused by excessive use of social network.

Even suites have found that social network addiction affects the genes and weakens the immune and hormone level. So, its the time for people to think whether they want to live in a virtual world full of virtual friends (most of the friends in social network are strangers) or they will choose to live in the real society.

Social Networking is one of the best way to connect to people virtually. In Contraction it is also one of the best way to lead away from personal development of people.

If you can't personally make your development with the people when you really meet them and when you need to speak in public. Then all the work and learning virtually online goes in vain. So social networks an add-on to your development, don't make it your complete path of your future.

Social network is one of the best communicating system in this evergreen world. For example through Facebook, twitter, linked in etc, a business person can promote ones business, an actor or producer can promote his film and many more. In earlier days it was difficult to connect with friends, relatives and the other people who lived in far place like abroad.

But now a days we can contact, talk, live video conferencing, share in a second through Facebook, twitter and Skype. So this are some pros and benefits related to social network. However, there are also some cons to this sites like now a days majority of children and youth people are keeping them busy with this social sites which could lead to addiction and waste of their valuable time.

From my point of view one should take this to learn new things, to know recent news, to know what is going on around the world etc, one should not used for chatting only, its a bad habit.

Social Media is surely a boon. Its an platform to build a network of a like-minded people, expression of new ideas, analysis of present need and surely is one of the sources of bringing new inventions.

When it comes to influence, let social media influence you in a Right way, else it would be like a SWEET KNIFE, which means we might be victim of some fraud company providing a bumper prize of some lacs of Rupees and happily provide them whatever they want.

Surely Online selling portals quote us the best price and we are are always a winner without 'Bargaining', this term might sound cheap to some but friends bargaining is a Right of a Consumer and each youth of our time has learnt this ART in Mumbai's Fashion Street or Linking street or any such markets, but upcoming net savvy youth would never learn this Art.

It's advantage are unlimited we can get in touch with friend, family and even the unknown one for completely free. Sharing picture and feeling to many people in just a single click, it is also time effective as one can simply post the message on his/her wall and it spread to every one.

Some sites provide virtual platform not only to meet dear ones, but also interviews and business meeting are conducting through videoconferencing. Also a platform for marketing like new companies can promote their product, new writers promote their books.

We can get updates every second what is happening around the world. If any natural disaster take place at afar of our place then through these sites we can help them by donating money and providing clothes, food, medicine.

Youth lose their valuable time by addicting to this, fake accounts increases the cyber crimes, some terrorist groups motivate the youth towards them and also traps the officers gets imp information.

I would like to take the neutral position in this discussion because the social networking has both positive & negative effects on our life. Looking at the positive site it is the tool if used to its maximum potential can connect us with the world. We can share our thoughts, feelings etc, on social network sites such as Facebook, WhatsApp, twitter etc, we can get the news from all sectors like economy, politics, banking, society, national, international.

We can get connected with our old friends, make new friends, increase our contacts. The message can be sent within few seconds to friends & others. We come to know what is happening around the world on these social net working sites. Apart from these positive effects there are many negative impacts of social networking. The youth today is wasting alot of its precious time on social networking sites. Even if the social network is expanded community life is coming to an end.

It is like addiction to many of users & they can't live away from it either. The fake accounts is also a problem in which the girls are get trapped easily & the consequences are very dangerous.

Positive :

1. We can share the information within seconds.

2. It is very useful for start-up companies to promote their products at low cost.

3. It is useful for a student to share assignments. It helps a lot for education where students can refer data from e-books, articles, presentations etc.

4. For a normal person it will use to acquire the knowledge about current affair. Keep in track with latest technology.

5. It creates a virtual platform to meet with near & dear ones through video conferencing, Skype, video chatting and various other modes.

6. The people who use it badly are faulty. If you are given stones then you can make bridge out of these and you can also make a wall out of these. It entirely depend on individuals how he use it.

7. Social networking sites are used for various purposes like in politics, business, technology etc.

E-commerce (online shopping) is the best example. As we can purchase anything online. Various sites available are flip-kart, snap-deal etc.

8. The first recognizable social networking site is Six-degrees which was launched in 1997.

Till now, there are more than 200 social networking sites are in the internet.

Facebook, launched in 2004, has become the largest social networking site in the world.

9. It is becoming most advance form of job search portals. Job seeker can easily search job from a single platform. Now a days it becomes a part of social campaign for corruption, politic, national movements.

Negative :

1. For teenagers too much addiction to sns leads to decrease in the concentration of his/her studies.

2. If you use more than limits than it is a time killer.

3. Making unnecessary relationships with opposite gender.

4. Students share the subject files during examination which is malpractice.

5. Now days we are seeing some terrorist groups are using these sites to motivate the youth towards the terrorist activities.

6. Now a days so many cyber crimes are through social media.

7. I read one news that Pakistani terrorists are contact the one of their army person through the SNS and made him to help them by providing what he wants.

8. Children at young age should never be allowed to use these sites because at such young age they would be exposed as at their age they are not in a position to decide whether it is right or wrong to be friends with strangers and also exposing them to social networks will erode their innocence. All things should be done at right time and social networking is not a right thing for very young kids.

At-last I would say if a big stone and a hammer is given to you, you can make statue or you can break the stone with hammer, in the same way it depends upon the attitude and character of a user who use it for good or bad.

So my suggestion is to use social networking sites in good manner! every invention is useful to human life until we notice its importance. So make a notice. Use carefully.

In my opinion, SNS doing bad impact on youth. Being connected with our buddies or family is good but young people using social networking apps every time even while exam times, it's like addiction to them, they can't live away from them. Therewith many people fooling others by making fake accounts of individuals and many times girls get trap in such harmful conspiracies. Many religious groups try to provoke them to fight with each other through these sites.

I think that the social media websites are going from the usage for which they have been created. We are wasting a lot of our precious time. Mainly, youth we don't where the youth of our century is going we are driven. By this social media we don't have any idea about what we are finally going to get from this depression is the main thing that is undertaking the power of youth. It is mainly taking lives of our youth in the form of suicides. I think everyone should just think once about it. I can't write much in here, and this is what I feel.
