I believe the most interesting thing about social media is its ability to connect people together all over the world. From Facebook to Twitter, social media has grown into an unbelievable tool to quickly inform people with the latest news in numerous different ways.
Reporting and Connecting
One of its biggest advantages is how it can be used to break news. For example, the recent school shootings were reported faster than ever before through Twitter.
Another great thing about social media is how it allows you to connect with people like never before. The average person can easily communicate with the celebrity through Facebook and Twitter.
Also it, allows you to stay in touch with friends and family no matter where they live.
However, this has its advantages and disadvantages.
Sometimes the ability to release news and thoughts so easily can backfire, providing the public with too much information that can cause trouble or controversy.
Athletes and politicians struggle with this because their words are scrutinized more than the average person’s.
In the Future
In the future, I imagine social media will continue to grow bigger than I can even think. Personally, I will use social media to my advantage the best I can.
I’ll try to use it to find jobs and take advantage of other opportunities. Also, being in the news reporting field, I will use it to report and break news, and promote my stories as well as other important news.
I’ll probably use it in others ways that haven’t even been developed yet in the ever-evolving social media world.
