WHY SOCIAL MEDIA CAN BE POSITIVE TOO

We live in a virtual world. 80% of our daily interactions are getting performed through social media. If we can omit the negative aspects of social media addiction, we can stem out the POSITIVE THOUGHTS about it and understand HOW TO BE A CHANGEMAKER. Companionship is one of the essential elements of our life. The strength of the emotional connections we make have a huge impact on our mental health. THE BENEFITS OF SOCIAL MEDIA is that it helps us to get virtually connected with each other and ease stress, depression, loneliness, and boost self-worth, provide comfort and add years to our life.

Today most of us rely on social media sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram to find, connect and interact with each other through talking, sharing thoughts, pictures, videos etc.

Virtual interaction might not have the same psychological impact as face-to-face contact, but it still helps us to stay connected and assist us in the following ways: –

  • Helps us to stay up to date with family and friends around the world 24*7
  • Helps us to build a network of friends or people of same interests, ambitions, and culture.
  • In today’s fast paced world, social media is the ultimate platform to promote worthwhile causes; raise awareness on important issue.
  • Seek or offer emotional services to the people in need and help them to fight their battle.
  • If you live or work in a remote area or live alone or a part of a marginalized group, it provides a vital social connection required to sustain a healthy life.
  • Social media is a big platform for expressing your thoughts, your creativity, your ideas to influence people and work for a bigger cause. It also helps to promote talent and provides an audience for all types of artists.
