Communicate with other.

Popular sites like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat allow us to communicate to the world for free. We can send family and friends a direct message, tag them in a picture, and we can video call people on social media.

Earn Money

You should have seen this one coming. Many celebrities, and everyday folks earn money on social media.  To be specific, many people earn money as Instagram models and affiliate marketing.

Business

If you own your own business, you can use this positive aspect of social media to your advantage. Why not create a social media page to promote your business. In most cases, it is free and/or cheap.

Cons

Opinions

With the click of a button, we can express our opinions about anything that is happening in society. Many on social media are blunt and spare no mercy with their comments. This has caused many social media arguments.
 
Facebook Feuds

On Facebook, many people like to confront other people via their Facebook status. Personally, I do not like this. It makes the worse.

Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is a horrible things to do on social media. A few years back, I heard a story about a man cyberbullying his daughter on Facebook. The daughter killed herself because of her father’s action.

In conclusion, social media has it positive and negative aspects. How has social media changed your life.
