Is Social Media a Curse or a Blessing to Our Generation?

It is a blessing to us. It is disheartening that many people abuses this beautiful creation and use it to perpetrate their evil agenda and corrupt the innocent ones.

Social media are great. No news can be hidden to the public anymore. There are so many things that people could achieve just through the social media and the power of hashtags. So many crimes and criminals have been introduced to the public. So many who have been abused, now they dare to share it with the public and prevent others from being abused by the same criminals. Besides, there are so many businesses who make money through social media. Too many jobs and opportunities have been created…
In general, I think social media are big blessings for the world

Like a lot of things that are invented these days there are positives and negatives for everything. The positives for social media are those that Vahid has mentioned. We also use social media to alert people to natural disasters and emergency services use social media to gather intelligence in the midst of natural disasters as a lot of people post photos and also stories of where events are occurring. The negative side of social media is where people hide behind their keyboards and bully others with little retribution. There has been a lot of bullying in recent times towards children by other children and adults towards other adults. Another issue with social media is that it is a distraction for people that are addicted to it, these people are unable to do those normal things in their life without referring to their chosen social media channel.

Like any other invention throughout history, social media also has its good and bad attributes. The firearm for instance, was meant for defence and hunting but is now used to rob and kill.
Social media plays a very important role in our lives today. It has been successfully used in Covid-19 and political campaigns, advertising, emergency alerts and general social  communication. 
We have also seen the emergence of fake news peddlers  and cyber bullies. I believe that mechanisms can be put in place to counter such activities.
With all that , I think social media has more good features than bad ones.

Great question and great responses so far. Love it or hate it social media is an integral part of most peoples everyday life. As per the previous comments we can see so many great benefits such as reporting the real world news but like everything there are also the negatives such as bullying. Its amazing the journey that has taken place from the introduction of home computers, the internet, to then squeeze it all into mobile phones and tablets. My children’s understanding of social media is absolutely amazing and they are so tech savvy. Overall I think society has benefitted more than it has lost and after all you cant stop progress!

Social media is not a curse to this generation, but is a blessing to us.

The social media plays a great role in pushing the human civilization to think independently. Everything is freely distributed in the social media, and everyone can reach anyone. With this almost absolute freedom, we are forced to think independently and choose wisely. Since there are so many information about everything, we need to decide on ourselves which one is right and which one is wrong. We also need to decide which one has the most benefit. In essence, the social media teach us not to depend on other judgment on something that matters to us. Consequently, we have to be smarter and more wise.

Social media has positive and negative aspect for us like everything. You need to take a positive aspect and avoid the negative things. So it’s a blessing for me.

Social media is a blessing. It made life easier, many people are using it to earn a living and others have made a fortune on social media. But, of course, everything has good and bad sides. There negative impacts that it has also brought!

Spoke to a friend of mine today who also mentioned a crypto scam that caught him out of FB. Definitely need to do your research if you are going to try these things. Unfortunately another negative effect – the exploitation

At first it serve as a revolution.
Socia media can operate as both curses and blessings in our modern society. When used correctly, the benefits of social media can far outweighs some of its downfalls.
Social media is a curse because it’s changing the behavior of our society. Some teenagers tends to abuse social media and use it for popularity. Some social media can lead to shorter attention and less efficient work.

Maybe for my second opinion, social media will impact negatively on the youth to some extent. I have seen teenage boys and girls watch porn on smart phones, because it’s a trend to have one.
They pester their parents to buy them smartphones, which they miss use.

Poor reporting of social media  especially on elections can cause political crisis in a country,eg if a person posts wrong information ,demonstration,civil strife may prevail if not controlled properly.

Leno Jean Pierre answered 2 days ago
