Mascha Röhrenbeck English Lk 11 Social Media - Curse or Blessing? Everything has pros and cons and therefore also Social Media. Doubtless Social Media plays a big part in our lives and most people cannot imagine living without it because they earn money from it, keep their contacts alive and more important reasons. However, the main questions are if social media has a good or bad influence on our lives and why we stubbornly cling on it? First of all, the main part of social media is communication with others. Back then communication was exhausting, people had to meet up in real life, there were no video calls, they had to write letters and they had landline phones. Furthermore, nowadays communication is easier because people can have video calls, write text messages, and other things the technology allows us. Besides, social media can help people who are socially isolated or introverted to communicate with others. For instance, people can easily communicate with their friends and relatives overseas, maybe someone immigrated somewhere new and they had to leave their friends and family behind but with social media, you can still keep contact with them or during a pandemic like Covid-19 where you have to be home isolated people still can see their friends and family true face...

cam and talk to them on the phone. Another point that speaks for social media is education development. Doubtless, people had to look up their information back then in books or other written sources. Additionally, some people had to go to the library because they did not have the book at home to do their research and this took time and effort. Nowadays information about nearly anything can be found on social media, google, and other research platforms, and accordingly this saves time and effort. Furthermore, students can educate themselves on various topics using social media, and live lectures are possible because of social media. For example, you can also revise school material on platforms like YouTube or learn websites. Lastly, social media can be a platform for young artists to showcase their talent for everyone and it can also support people. Besides, people can start a career or even push their career forward. Moreover, they can unfold their self-expression, confidence, creativity, interest, and passions. Above all, people can also push their business with it and they can get great opportunities for employment through social media. For example, they can become an Influencer or Youtuber and they have the opportunity to express their lifestyle and earn enough money for living. On the other hand, fake news and misinformation are often spread in social media and digital news are common nowadays. Accordingly, everyone can spread fake news or misinformation in social media, therefore it spreads fast and gets attention. Furthermore, the problem is that sometimes it is hard to discover if the news is real or fake. In addition, on social media there are young and old people who are easy to influence and if those beliefs in the fake news and they share it with others panic can unnecessary breakout. For instance currently, fake news about Covid-19 goes around and they spread panic, confusion, and incertitudes like fake news about town or city shut-downs, high fines for breaking the ban, or new rules about social distance. Another point against social media is the addiction it can cause. However, you have to tell from real addiction and not real addiction because if someone is often on their smartphone and social media that does not mean that they are automatically addicted, if they are addicted it affects their daily life. Furthermore, they just focus on social media and neglect important things in life like family, friends, hobbies, school, or work. Moreover, this addiction can cause physical problems like neck and back pain or other problems like laziness, self-isolation, social anxiety, depression because they just have social media on their mind and do not have contact with other people or the outside world. Indeed, this addiction can also have a consequence on the future life from the addicts because if they self-isolate and get anxiety it is hard to communicate with other people and in the future, maybe you have to often communicate with people because of your job but this depends on what job you choose and if all of this applies to a person which is addicted to social media depends on the personal behavior and the own discipline. Finally, cyberbullying and cybercrime are common in social media nowadays. The oversharing happening on social media makes children a target for hackers and it could also lead to cyberbullying. Additionally, hackers can steal your important and private information, they could also threaten you till you give them what they expect. Furthermore, it is a fact that people have a confident voice on social media, which means that they are more confident to say bad, hurtful, and disgusting things to you because they do not have to say it into your face, they hide behind a screen. The big problem is that nowadays more children and teenagers have social media and they can become an easy target for cyberbullying. Above all cyberbullying can have very bad consequences on people who get bullied trough social media. To illustrate, those victims can get scared, emotionally weak, depressed, insecure, they can get anxieties and in the worst case those victims can commit suicide because their life is ruined and they feel alone. Some of those bullies do not know how cruel cyberbullying is and what it can do to a person, they have fun doing it without realizing that not everyone is strong enough to handle this situation and they are not aware of the consequence. To put the whole matter in a nutshell you can say that social media has some good and bad sides but if we look at what we made out of social media everyone can see that social media can ruin lives and that it is for some people a torment. Furthermore, people should learn how to use social media correctly and not for hating people and spreading fake information. Doubtless they are always people who are not stopping doing what they want even if it is bad and I think those people are too many to even chance social media to a good and peaceful platform for everyone.
