According to me, It is connecting us and also isolating us. Social Media is connecting the people those who stay far from us and isolated from our family. But this helps the people to share their thoughts on a public issue. People who are using social media forget to spend time with their neighbours and they become lazy.

According to me, It is connecting us and social Media is connecting the people those who stay far from us. But this helps the people to share their thoughts, ideas and major information to a public issue. People who are using social media forget to spend time with their neighbours, family and also relatives and they become so lazy.

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.

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.

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.

So we are using most popular social media's and also using e-commerce. Then, also connecting with people through the internet because of everything is available in internet.

So social media is most important aspect in our country and peoples. It is connecting with people. There are collections of information are available in the media. So we are taking useful information from the social media. It will be very helpful for our knowledge.

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.

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.

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.
