Blog 2: Social Media

Social Media is almost part of everyone's life. People's choice in what social media they choose to take part in varies by preference. People have to realize that a lot of their time is being spent on their phones and their social media. For instance, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc, and that if they do not limit their usage, they could be wasting a lot of unwanted time. Checking our phones has become so natural, that almost most of us check our phones before getting out of bed. It has become so vital for people to check their phones that they put themselves in dangerous and vulnerable situations. For example, texting and driving or checking social media while in traffic. A lot of students find that is hard for them to concentrate because they find themselves switching between their homework and phones too often. It is safe to say, most teenagers and young adults use their social media to update their friends on what they are doing or how they are feeling, and not so much for educational purposes. The internet can be a great resource for learning and finding out the answers to our daily questions. However, we need to know our limits when it comes to social networking. People have to become aware that a lot of their time is spent on their phones, and it is better to be doing something productive. People have to start familiarizing themselves with all the benefits the internet can offer rather than just talking about their own lives to others or reading about other people's lives.  For example, you can learn how to play the piano, or a new language or how to do almost anything on the internet and begin using these tools to their advantage.The internet is like a school, you can learn almost anything on it. So people should open their eyes to new things that will teach something they didn't know.
