Social networking comes with both pros and cons

For a while now, there have been many different thoughts and opinions about social networking. Many of which have to do with the question, “Are social networking sites good for our society?” This is a very debatable topic that would have many different answers depending on your age and thoughts about these sites.

I, for one, being a teenager, enjoy going on my phone and looking at my Instagram and Facebook accounts every so often just to see what is going on with my peers and in the world around me. However, I have learned some of the many cons of social networking sites. A few of the cons have to do with all of these networking sites sometimes sharing false information that spreads throughout the Web and starts many different controversies and conflicts.

Using these sites too often can lead to bad grades and, even worse, personality and brain disorders. Not only that, but it can also lower one’s ability to communicate with others face-to-face.

So, now that people know the pro and cons about these social networking sites, take these facts into consideration and think about them the next time one is scrolling through a news feed for hours at a time.
