Some Positive and Negative Effects of Social Media

Social media face book, twitter and mails have become a part of our social life and the majority of the people around the world are using them. Many people use and maintain even multiple social networking sites. But the sad fact is that people are only aware of the benefits of using them but there is also the other side of the coin, which people are unaware. Let us learn what recent research says about the effects of social media.

1. There has been a shift in the behavior pattern of the people using social networking sites from the positive side to the negative.

2. People who log on to social networking sites many times a day are more prone to addiction and are likely to suffer from anxiety.

3. More number of negative feelings have been recorded in the people who are using social networking sites.

4. Comparison with others in the networking sites is leading people towards depression and ill feelings about themselves.

5. Opinions of other people, number of likes all these are having severe effect on a person’s emotions.

This is one side of the coin let us look at the some of the benefits of using the social media.
1. If a person gets more appreciation or positive feedback from the social networking sites that gives him a boost and he is likely to perform even greater.

2. If more number of persons who share good things and things that lead to happiness is more then, the person is likely to be more happy and positive.

3. Talking to friends and sharing with them your thoughts makes you socially active and keeps you away from negative feelings such as loneliness and depression.

4. We may be feeling emotionally low and negative but if we go through others updates and go through what they share. We may find something that will shift our thinking to positive side or make us feel light hearted.

5. Active social media life makes us feel more secured and boosts our confidence.

So, as both sides of the coin social media also has some positive and some negative effects. It would be wise to cash on the positives and to avoid the negative ones.
