Social media is a wonderful thing, it helps us connect to the internet and friends online and allows us to do anything we want.
But there are people who use the internet for their own gains, making them do horrible decision. Some people would use social media to harm, threat, annoy or attack others for entertainment or just do so. Everyone tries to be safe on the internet but some people will go to far lengths to cause trouble by sending viruses or accessing private accounts through hacking.
Since now, social media has now extended to phones using them as apps and game consoles using them to communicate through gaming.
And still, most people are finding new ways to attack others with phones and games, almost to the point where the situation is to dire to deal with, causing the victims to get involved with the police or committing self harm possibly leading to suicide. Which can have devastating effects to the human race as we know it.
As bad as that may sound, not all is doom and gloom. While there is bad things people do, there also is helpful people who provide useful information of news updates about the world.
Many people want to help others but can’t do so due to living out so far from them, but now we have the internet, people use social media to assist those in need with help. Many situations have been solved thanks to social media with helpful people.
Doctors and nurses put up diagnosis on social media to make people aware of illness you could catch or have. Fitness teachers show how you can maintain a fit body by checking their websites for more details, and news broadcasters show the weather, news and sports online for all to see.
Now that social media is everywhere and almost everyone is using it, people think it’s now a part of human life. but most people think its too much for us. With most of the resources that come from online, and the entertainment that comes from it. people are now living with online connectivity to social media to the point where social media is causing young people to join them without knowing what to do, and giving their life to join it. Which now causes a new problem.

Social Media safety .
With people using phones, consoles, tablets, laptops and desktops (computers), no one is spending time offline. Some people are now less active, pay less attention to their surroundings, and spend most of their life at home. We want you people to make this aware, if no one is getting the equal amount of offline as they are online. Old problems could become worse. People will gain anxiety of going near people due to interacting online, they could fall into depression due to being alone, and they could become so addicted, they would possibly go insane for it and lose self control of themselves.
So please, help show young people the safety and dangers of online activity. Show them how social media works on different devices, set their settings to parental controls, and make sure they stay away from trouble.
If you know anyone who may have an addiction to social media, try to get them to spend more time outside by going to a park, hang out at a bowling alley, go to a beach or go out on a walk, or go to a gym and work out with friends.
