Is Social Media all Bad?

By: Jamia Murray

In today’s day and age, we still deal with things that happened in the past, like racism, sexism, bullying, etc. But today, things are magnified by social media. The smallest thing that nobody would generally know about before technology was a thing, everybody finds out about in the quickest times today. Social media has made such a difference in the way people communicate today, but it isn’t all bad.

A lot of times today, when people think about social media they think of women showing their bodies off on Instagram or how drama is being spread to the whole world. Social media is more than just drama. Social media can be used for all types of things that aren’t bad. For example, if someone needs a little financial help, they can start a go fund and post it on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc. Or social media can be used to help a person get their small business up and running. Once people start to see that small business, they might think I should get something and check it out. That small business can become more popular just because one person shared it with another friend, and it kept going on down the line.

Although social media has its bad side, there are some really positive things that happen on social media. It is just that the bad of what people are doing in today’s age takes the spot light over the good because nowadays people like to see other people fail and think it is funny. A big example of a big topic that can overshine people good on social media is Chrisean and Blueface. If you know who Chrisean and Blueface are, you can tell the bad in their relationship overshines the love they have for each other. At the same time, they get money off of the toxicity of their relationship because people like to see other people embarrass themselves on social media. Overall social media isn’t the bad part it is some of the people in the world that make social media seem bad.
