According to me, we have seen that by social media we all are connected to each other but inside us we feel alone. We have 1000 friend list in our account but whenever we need just only one friend we have none. So it is seen that social media is connecting us to many people but actually it pushes us to loneliness in today's world.

When talking about social media it has both pros and cons. Talking about its pros it helps you connecting people anywhere around the world, it provides you lots of information about the current events which are going all around and about its cons it makes people addictive, they start their day by looking into social media tweets, wherever people go they just switch into their social media app and begin to scroll down the feed. It can be seen in home, office, bus, anywhere and they begin to compare their life with it. Which infact is not a good idea.

Hi, I am Brishaketu

Social media connecting people. We all are welcome in that media. We all are connected to relative, friends and those are away from me and also unknown. Knowing about those, learning from their life root and also aware ours current world. But the term "actually " use because of the bad effect of this. Like excessive use, fake news & stories, unsecured personal information etc.

So, proper use of media can help us to connect to the worldwide.

Social media, yes it is right that this word makes us amuse, but the harsh reality is that in present scenario social media is not working in its pure form, as all we know that it has become a platform for playing politics for some people, indiscipline in between regions is being created by the help of social media, fake news and stories are being made by fake people and this is costing lives, moreover it has not vanished from our minds that recently Facebook is caught in stealing the data of its users so social media has become so social that it is reading our minds also.

In my opinion, the social media is not behaving correctly in present for the society and for the national peace so strict actions are needed for the upbringing of the usefulness of social media.

With the help of social media we get to what is going on in the world. It has made us aware of people of different lifestyles and traditions. But because of its excessive use by the younger generation has created many problems. We lose lives in many accidents because we want to take few a selfies at places that are quite dangerous. We are keeping distance with our close friends and relatives even if we are living close to them.

A big NO.

I think social media has lost its essence, the purpose for which it was initially created. It was created so that people sitting at two different corners of the world can connect. I do agree that people do get connected through it but that connection does not have any value. Nowadays on social media, people's have thousands of friends who are just there for liking, commenting in their post nothing else. Social media is connecting people on a superficial basis that doesn't have any real connection. Even people's are having a conversation with different people who are far away from them but they are losing contact who is sitting next to them. In need of help, one would get help only from their real friends who they have met personally and not from their other facebook or Instagram friends.

Even social media can actually help us in connecting people if we use it in a limited and optimum manner rather than using it all day all night just for fun.

Thank you. Have a great day ahead.

According to me, social media is the path or way of connecting people, friends also we can improve our knowledge through watching videos and so many inspire speech is the good think about social media. But so many people mostly youth are addicted of snapchat they can wastage there time in scrolling the Facebook and instagram so I think social media is good also and bad too.

Hello friends.

Is social media actually connecting people?

As everything in this world has two face. Likewise, social media connection towards people also has two faces. Yes, It connects the people worldwide. It connects the people who are in such a distance were we can't travel to meet them. So that we can mingle with different people belongs to different area, which makes us to know their lifestyle and culture. We can also get connected with professors, doctors, scientists or any professionals and make use of them to clarify our doubts. We can also get updated with things that happen worldwide. But on the other face it keeps us away from the people around us. Yes, myself suffered from this my sister who I like a lot and love to spend time will never respect my feeling when she uses social media. It really isolates from people around us. Even the healthy food if we consumed more than the level it acts as poison. Likewise, social media too. So, we have to use it in a healthy way.

Hi everyone.

Yes, one can say the social media like facebook, Watsapp, Snapchat are introduced to communicate with other people through the internet. But in real life we do not use it in a positive way. Many people use fake accounts to communicate with others with bad intentions. People try to compare with others to show off their social status. Nowadays people are too addicted with these social sites and ignore their daily necessary works even a five-year-old child has his account in social media. So we should not make ourselves as slaves of social media rather we should use when it is really necessary.

Social media is a medium through which we communicate, make new friends, share our opinions on everything, criticize each other, become the keyboard warriors.

In my opinion, it is not connecting people.

Social media is good if we use it properly so it is on us how we use it for our improvement or destruction. But nowadays people are got addicted to the social media and using it in a bad way and wasting their precious time. People are using it as a medium to show their happy times by clicking the pictures and posting it on social media. Instead of connecting friends on social media people should go out and try to interact them by heart.

In my consent, it is actually not doing for what it came into existence.

Nowadays, parents don't have control over their children. Even a 5 year old now knows how to operate a smartphone and he/she is socially active on every social media website. Besides building contacts, this generation is just wasting their time refreshing the news feeds, tagging people and making vines. People are becoming more self oriented and selfish. They prefer meeting people on social media besides meeting the person personally. So, the social media is not connecting people, it is just making people more self-oriented, reserved and selfish in nature.

My opinion about this topic is No, social media is not actually connecting people as in todays life everyone is using sources of social media like facebook, whatsapp, snapchat etc for making a fake connection with people what people do is they just click selfies, pictures of food and keep on posting it and usually show off to their friends. This shows that they aren't connected by heart and they are just connected by means of showing each other how much happy they are and how much they are enjoying but the thing is they actually don't know how to enjoy as at outings or at public places also they are using phone instead of having fun. Instead of connecting through social media people should go out meet new people try to interact with them, making plans with them, sharing their problems with them this will develop good connecting which is just by heart.

Social media is connecting us with people who are either far away from us or whom we don't even know. In one way, we get to know about other people, their customs and traditions, etc but it leaves very little time to spend with the ones we are close to thus, disconnecting us from them. With the help of social media, we can connect with the government as well. We can share our opinions, feedback on the services they provide or the work they do. Thus, it is a way to connect with the government. Companies can connect with their customers and promote their offering.

According to me,

Social media is basically good as well as bad just like one coin have two sides. So its on us how we use it, that is for our betterment or our destruction. All we need to do is that just stop blaming social media for the damages rather start changing our way of using it.

In my point of view, the answer to this question is a big no. Yes, it can be said that social media has helped to know other people, be friends with. But the term connecting is actually not working these days. Anytime and Everywhere people are out with the cellphones to click picture and uploading as soon as possible. We can say marketing of social media has grown rapidly but this is a deep truth that it can never connect people in an actual basis because nowadays, people are eager to show and know how much they are happy and comparing there happiness with others. In this manner they are connected but it can never be like the old school friendship where there was no phones in hand and still we are connected in every levels all the time.

In my opinion, the social media is good and quite useful if used rightly. But people nowadays, majorly the youth have been so addicted to the social media that they are rather wasting a lot of their useful time on it rather than just using it to get more information. I have myself seen so many people actively using social media but they lack the real communication skills in actual life. This thing people are not realizing these days but they are going to regret it later. So, it should be only used as a source to connect and meet new people across the globe and being a bit active socially and not as something on which people should waste their productive time scrolling the news feed. Everyone should be more active in real life learning new things and making their day more productive rather than being glued to their screens all day.

No, social media is connecting people in my opinion what people are doing these days when they get bored they turn towards social media which is making them selfish and introvert at the same time. The mentality of today's generation is like it's better to sit inside and chat rather than go outside and meet with that person physically. People are becoming self-oriented they care about people who are far rather than caring and giving time to those people who are close, you can't form a connection just by sending a message in order to build a connection or relation you have to be there to share laughs, share stories that's how relationship can be build even we can see the change during festivals now people just use social media to greet eachother but before people go to eachother houses in order to greet and wish someone.

No question that social media has revolutionized communication. As a result, we are becoming more knowledgeable, more direct, and in a lot of ways, more diversified. But the overall trend and actual fact is Social Media is connecting people those who stay far from you and isolating from your family or who are close to you. So you need to decide how you will handle or manage your social media and which is your necessity and which is your priority. It's difficult to make everyone happy, but if you can manage both your 'near' and 'far' that will be a great achievement in your life.

In the last five years, various social networking sites have taken the virtual world by storm. Now we have more friends on these sites than in real life.

According to me, the social media is connecting people we can meet here those friends whom we never think to talk and meet again. And also interact with new people and can understand their culture. Social media help in building a relationship here some people find their true love.

And Another one is charity. If a child needs a blood then tweet his location and name. You can get 100 of blood donor in a line.

And a spark can turn into fire. In minutes. If you want to share something with people so it a platform. And it is the power of social media.
