Hello everyone.

This is Padmasri.

I want to share my thoughts on social media with you. Yes, social media connects the people.

Nowadays, people love to communicate with others who are far away it's a good thing to chat and speak with others through social media, but people forget to speak with the people who are around them. Children instead of playing with friends, they are chatting with others who they don't know. People stopped caring about persons who are around them. Because of this relationships become weak. Social networking is important but it has limits.

Yes, social media connects people.

As per recent studies, we all know that Facebook stands on the top-used app. Most of the people spend their time on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok. Etc. They find information related to mindset, long-lost friends and relatives. They indirectly know about their progression in their day-to-day lifestyle.

Most of the businessman uses Facebook for their product advertisement.

Social media actually connects people. Yes, it's true because wherever we are we can able to access them or find them through social media. There are lot of applications where people can connect with each other like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.

There are many advantages and disadvantages. People can connect with strangers, so people get attracted towards them through applications. There might be a risk as the information provided by them might be fake. Some connections can take you to a place that is like a milestone in your life. People can explore their talent through social media and they can achieve their goals and find their best opportunities through social media. Through social media connections and interactions, they can understand other people's cultures and other new things. By social media, we can find childhood friends by their name so that they can cherish olden days memories and build connections more.

Yes, Social media plays a very important role in connecting people. We can connect to our long-lost friends, relatives, collegues through many social media platforms like facebook, instagram, whatsapp etc. Social media also helps people who are in need of anything and can post by writing in any platform so that many people can help them out. It also helps in businesses for marketing their products through social media so that they can reach out to as many people as possible. It helps in educating young minds through recent news, current affairs and many other information.

Good morning friends.

The topic given to us today actually caters to our personal and social life these days. Is social media actually connecting people? Social media, the newest addition in the media industry, is not very old. Social media, basically, covers computer-aided tools, which allow the transaction and sharing of ideas, information, knowledge etc.

Yes, while I believe that social media is connecting people, I also understand that more than connecting people it's becoming a tool of promotion in today's time. With Instagram's recent changes, I see more sponsored posts rather than my friends.

Social Media is definitely connecting people all over the world and Social media has become very important in today's world. We get to connect with our friends, relatives, and close ones. Social media has also become a way of earning for many content creators and has even helped many in making their future. As we all know every pro has its cons so it is applied to Social media too where people can get too much addicted to this which can lead to many issues in terms of health and many other problems.

For example, people don't even realize what is going on around them when they are so much into phones.
For some Social media becomes their complete life because of which there might be times when their family relations might get affected and distanced because of a lack of interactions between them.

Social media plays a significant role in our life. It connects people all over the world through several apps like Facebook, Instagram etc. Communication becomes more easier than in earlier days. We can also able to connect with our old friends & family members, and relatives and explore new cultures with the help of social media.

But anything excess in life is poison and the same thing goes for social media. Many of us are addicted which can lead to hampering our personal life as well as professional life. So, we should be aware of the limitations of using social media. There are chances of getting cyberbullied, verbally abused & harassed. Our personal data, information can be hacked.

In my point of view, yes, social media is connecting people undoubtedly.

And In the present time, all people are connecting through social media.

Use social media in a useful manner and also in a limited way.
