Social networking sites have emerged as the most powerful networking medium among people these days. Nowadays people rely more on facebook, whatsapp, instagram more than face to face contact and interaction. But certainly there are some benefits which one can draw from these. It depends on how one uses these different apps. Some people use them for chatting, some use them for work purposes, some use them for posting photos and status updates and try to make themselves popular (fake popularity). But if seen from the other angle, it can be of immense help if we use it properly. Such as we can share some important documents, photos, keep contact through video calls when far away from family members. But the problem is that the young generation is getting trapped by these sites and are getting addicted. They are keeping on posting their photos all day long which are of no value. Instead if they use it for enhancing knowledge and educational purposes, then it will be of great help for them, for anyone. It is not about getting 1000 likes, it is about doing something which will add value to your life.

Hello everyone. I am glad to start the discussion. The Topic given to us is 'Impact of Social Networking Sites ' is really an Interesting topic.

From my point of view, social networking sites like fb, whatsap, twitter, insta are connecting people around the globe. Since people are really busy now a days because of the hectic schedules and they don't get time to talk to their loved ones, friends and relatives who lives far away from them, Social networking is really helping connecting to people. But there are some cons also, People are getting addicted to social networking sites, even living in the same home they don't even communicate/interact properly with their family members, skips the daily meals that they used to have together. Not only the teenagers but even their parents are getting more addicted. Also some people are using social networking sites recklessly and posts grossly offensive or menacing information hurting religious sentiments. There were so many people who were arrested for sharing offensive info on Twitter, Fb, etc. Now the govt of India has restricted the type of content anybody shares on social sites and Its a crime under the contentious section 66 A IT Act to post such kind of information. Thus now people are becoming more aware.

Though We had a good discussion but could not reach the consensus. There are also cons for using social networking sites but we cannot forget the pros basically we need to be aware while using these sites to protect ourselves from the adverse effects. Thank you.

Hello everyone.

Our topic is the impact of social sites.

Social networking affects people in a positive and negative. In a positive manner with the help of social networking sites, we connect anyone easily and communicate easily. And we can get all the latest update to happen around the world. And people can spend time. On the other hand, there are many negative impacts of social sites on societies like it will harmful for peoples (effect on eyes, health and many more) , and people get fake news that is the cause of some consequences happens and now a people addict these social sites.

I think the impact of social sites is good for society when we use in an effective manner.

In my opinion, social networking sites are one of the most effective tools in our hand in this era of developing country. I think it affects greatly in the development of anyone in social, educational, and also countries economic area. Talking about students life it is a very effective tool only if used in effective way. There are so many platforms like unpermitted academy and so many tutors teaching on youtube who can educate very well in any field of education.

I think social media has a great impact on our society both in a good and bad manner. It really depends on the person using it. Earlier social media came into light for connecting different people around the globe. But now it's applications has increased not just it is providing knowledge to us but also entertaining us. With the help of social media, one can talk to their family, friends, relatives even if they are in two different corners of the world. One can learn about different cultures, recipes, dance moves, singing just by sitting in their home and using these services. It is really a boon to our society.

But as we know every coin has two sides, this one also has. Some bad impacts on society.

Social media was created so that people far away from their friends, the family can talk to each other but nowadays peoples are using it just for timepass. They spend hours and hours just sitting with these sites and scrolling the news feed which is not beneficial at all. Even small children's of 6 -7 age they have Facebook and Instagram account. And definitely, this has affected their studies. They don't pay attention to their studies.

Even some people make fake accounts in these social media sites and they annoy people by the flooding of messages, even saying inappropriate things to them, and harass them in some or other way. Even one should not post each and every detail of his/her life as it can be dangerous for him/her if someone is stalking them.

So, with this, I would like to conclude that social sites have both good and bad impacts. But it depends on us how we are using it. So we should use it in a very careful manner also for a very limited time only.

Thank you!

Have a great day ahead.

Hello everyone,

As we know that every coin has two phase, so we talk about the good impact of social networking sites it helps us to know about what is happening in our country and also in the world. Before this, nobodies have a good knowledge and information now all the people are aware of the whatever happens.

As we know with the help of newspaper we are able to get the information and also the radio and now just social media.

Most of the people are away from the home just like for study ingredients and job and also our are Soldiers they are blessed to do face to face communication with their family.

And much more good impacts too.

The bad impact is that everyone is busy with the mobile they use the mobile till late at night and they are not like to talk with their parents and family member and because of that crime is also increasing.

According to me, social media has good as well as bad impact too. It is for connecting people world wide and they have done it. By using social media we can share any important thing instantly because this is the only plateform where we can share instantly.

But sometimes I have seen a very bad example of using social media is when someone had an accident on road some people are making video of them and upload it on social sites instead of doing help to the needful, and after that they said that they have done it to aware their relatives but that's not more imp. Then their lives.

The social media has both advantages and disadvantage like every coin has both the side so its one's perspective to see the which side they are taking as we know the motto of this side are to connect the whole world and these sites are doing it very nicely as now a day we are not far away from anyone we can talk to anyone no matter where they are so Social networking sites are helping us to get connected to the whole world and also it helps in spreading awareness of the issues which are going on on the different corner of the world but some people are taking it otherwise or we say using it in wrong way, they are trying to spread the fake news like the case of one terrorist in Kashmir who use these sites to manipulate the people of Kashmir.

So now I conclude with the notes that it has some demerits but the merits are more so we can conclude that social networking sites have a good impact on our societies.

As every coin has two sides, there are positive and negative impacts of social media.

In Today's scenario. everybody is busy in their lives. Hence, we have no time to stay connected with friends and relatives.

Social media is a fast and convenient way of communication. You can create your groups and make new friends and share your ideas and day-to-day updates through our images, videos and texts etc. You can use social media for social awareness about a different social issue like pollution, health. You can use social media as a marketing tool. Many youngster\'s make money through YouTube channels and blogs.

There are some negative impacts of social media. Some people misuse of social media makes fake accounts and blackmail people. Students cannot concentrate on their studies and also some working people use net during working hours and its impacts on their office works. Addiction of social media is worth a serious issue for the society.

We all know the famous saying that, over usage of anything is harmful.

Social network is one of the powerful media through which information about anything can be obtained. There are other media also, but in today\'s world social network is most used. Informations more than that appear in other media like news papers, radio, tv etc. , are obtained through social media.

Moreover, within past four weeks, Kerala faced very bad consequences because of heavy rain, land slides, floods. In that time most of the people got saved because of one of the most popular social media. If the social media had not been there, many people of Kerala would be washed out. In cases like this, social media is very very useful.

On the other hand, many people have got addicted towards the social networking sites for no reason. They just like to sit in front of those sites and do something. For that kind of people the impact is very bad. They will develop health issues, they will lose interest in other things like studying, playing, reading books etc. .

I conclude that social networking sites are best source of general awareness, general knowledge when usage is optimum.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

Social networking sites are boon or bane, of course, it's boon because it helps to connect to our family-relatives who live in different countries, so we can contact with them easily even very low of cost. Even though social networking sites, we can see others countries culture even we can also know our India's culture of various cities as peoples is uploading videos.

Vice versa, Social networking sites are a bane as some people are misusing it, as they create fake accounts to disturb other people using chat, video call etc. Also, some people post nudity or violating content which actually humiliating our society.

So, we should be aware of this.

Hello friends, As everybody knows social sites connect with our old friends and families too. It acts as a mediator. Using a social site is useful and harmful also.

Advantages:

1. Earlier there was no phone it was very difficult to know the other person status, Nowadays each person has a phone and social sites like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram where we can easily talk with our friends and family.

2. We also get some latest news on social sites like what is happening around the world.

3. The example we can say like BLUEWHALE game which is a danger game was revealed on social sites like not to download this game.

Disadvantages:

1. Instead of studying, nowadays small children are using social sites, simply they signup into Facebook, Instagram which is a bad thing.

2. Whenever we are searching something advertises comes like porn type, that time mind will divert which has to be banned.

I think it has a huge impact on present generation both in the positive and negative way. It totally depends upon how it is being used by us. Some people are too much addictive towards social networking sites and they kill a lot of their time with these social media. Thats not at all a great thing happening with us.

Nowadays everyone busy with their lives, in this busy community the social media really relieves our stress with a proper usage. We may not talk to our friends daily, but still, we have been updated with their statuses because of social media. It also acts like a media by which we can really get to know a lot of things going around the world.

So, its totally with us, using or misusing!

According to me, these websites have transformed into a platform where people can post rubbish and fake things. These websites have lost their importance for which these websites were designed that was communication with people living in different cities, countries. Also, people are involved so much on these websites that they don't have time to talk to the person living at the next door. We are losing our true friends just because of a few virtual friends. There are few knowledgeable kinds of stuff on these websites. Also, misdirecting our youth and letting them waste their energy.

Social networking sites are created in order to communicate with different people living in different areas and thus have wide communication but in reality it is used just for utilising spare time and sometimes wasting time.

Social sites if used in right direction is useful otherwise only a tool used by us for timepass.

Social Networking Sites from the word itself it says to socially connect with all persons.

These Sites are created to connect all persons around the world but the reverse is happening here people are connected with these sites but when they are face to face they don't have the time to talk.

Hello Everyone.

Main initiative behind the social networking sites was to connect the people living in different cities, gaining information about various events taking place around the world. Social networking sites allow people to communicate with others, to get info about the things around them. Nowadays, people have stared creating groups that encourage others to take up different activites, guiding them to prepare for various competitive examinations and what not.

However, each coin has two sides. Simlilarly, with the increasing use of technology, the impact of social sites has taken a turn. People spend much of their time in surfing these social networking sites, which in turn increases the strain on their eye's sometimes leading to eye damage and other eye related problems.

Thus, I would like to conclude by saying that using social networking sites in right direct will definately have a positive impact on us.

Technology has always given an advantage to us. If we can operate it in a useful manner, then we call it a positive impact towards mankind and if not, then negative impact.

Trough this social networking site. We can talk with other people through text/audio/video chat which clearly shows that it's a package of communication.

Also. We can get the latest update of anything (sports, education, music). It's a way through which, the communication has been strong as compared to old days.

That's why Nowadays People are addicted towards it.

Thank you.
