In my opinion, I agree that using the social media brings more advantages than disadvantages.So, I would argue that there are more benefits. The main drawback of the trend towards social media is that people share their personal information.The people who use any form of social media such as websites, apps, or even simply their phones or laptops, require you to register with your personal information.This situation can cause problems, such as, If you join a website that it is not safe, your personal information might be used illegally.Therefore, when you share your picture and some important information, even if you don't want others to see your new information they can see your picture and so on. Despite the negative factor mentioned above, I believe that social media has more advantages. First of all, when they use social media they can find a lot of information and people can immediately see new dates or trends. Since social media can be reached by millions of people it allows people to make a new friends that can be foreign to them. This creates the opportunity for one to learn more such as, languages, culture, and even basic facts about that specific country. In conclusion, I personally think that social media can have various advantages and disadvantages.However on a balance, I believe that the benefits that are created from social media use outweighs the disadvantages.
