Social Media is a faster way to make new friends or business connections. Because we are connecting digitally, it facilitates joining many more groups and communities any time online. Moreover, networking online is less expensive than any other type of advertising or marketing.
In many ways, social communities are the virtual equivalent of meetings to exchange news and get updated on friends and families.
While Social Networking assists in making important business, social or professional connections, its disadvantage is that it reduces or eliminates face-to-face socialization. It is also true that it is easy to become distracted and end up spending valuable time on games, chats or other non-related activities.
In addition, use of social networks can expose individuals to harassment or inappropriate contact from others because the information you post on the Internet is available to almost anyone who can access it.
