Advantages, disadvantages of social media

Aug 13,2018 - Last updated at Aug 13,2018

As we all know, social media is spreading all over the world and people from different age groups are becoming addicted to using it. But many of them do not know the advantages and disadvantages of using social media.

I think one important advantage of social media is the easy communication and interaction with others across the world. In addition to that, social media simplified trade processes through offering easy communications and reasonable cost of advertisements.

On the other hand, we cannot ignore the fact that using social media has disadvantages, such as wasting time, which can create problems at all levels. Furthermore, social media may cause much harm when used for spreading bad news.

Another disadvantage that should be mentioned is the absence of the intellectual property rights.

In conclusion, what we can gather is that social media has pros and cons, meaning if social media is used in the wrong way; this would lead to a big fuss. Whereas if we use social media in the right way, we can reap its benefits.
