It discusses. wether social media 1 helps us of is good for us and or if it hurts us and our future or if it 41 I would like to is bad for us. I agree wit understand that the topic and the author un that agree with i it's hard to find the perfect midale! between of using social media too much' and 'too less!

I do think that maybe with our smartphones it is easiert & to get in contact, but it's also way easier to get distracted by any your smartphone. it could be s at least Lon the other hand in my opinion, er strange for your the owner of the company you want to get into when you 4 don't have any social media profile at all. It's harder for him to contact you or do other stuff because Social media is a part lives these days. For the a bit weird of our manager it seems that you are completely off of social media and make hin some thing which be in your question some CO couldn't interests. In addition, social media does not just help us, it can also inspirate us. for example when an influencer an Instagram achieving their dream job and talking about it could inspirate us and motivate you to not give up and keep going. we see I'd like to finish by saying that I do understand both sides and can give arguments for both opinions but in the end I think that social media nowadays is such a big part of our lives and culture that you almost can't escape it really. * It shows two different sides. of the use of social media and deals with several advantages. and disadvantages of both opinions.
