“There are a lot of pros and cons about social media; it’s just how you choose to handle it and how you have to be prepared for the negatives as well”.

Social media is not always an online distraction or procrastination platform. People are addicted to their social media networks for many valid reasons. Face book is the most famous social networking site in this modern era.

It is one of the best ways to stay informed about the world. Almost all news, updates, new technology and much other information is available on one platform. Teens want to be aware and informed just as much as adults. Using face book allows teens to follow organizations and causes that they believe in. It makes them feel like they are a part of something, even when they feel like an outcast in society.

For instance, when natural disaster strikes and causes devastating destruction, social media is the ideal vehicle to deliver messages asking for support. Hash tags are created to help Internet users locate related stories and show their support for those affected by the disaster. This helps stories that begin locally to gain national or global attention.

Moreover, true and lasting connection can and does come from face book. “While the naysayers call it a ‘distraction’, the truth is that face book steps in to save the day on a regular basis.

For example, a man was informed he needed a kidney transplant. During the process of haemodialysis, he posted his frustration. A simple status that was I need a kidney. He prompted multiple strangers who followed him to go get checked out. One match was found.  The two had never met in person until the day of the surgery, but that person happily donated his kidney to someone who simply asked for it.
Face book is fast becoming standard tools for professional practices. The ability of social media sites to spread information beyond the capacity of traditional digital media makes them attractive tools for organizations and individual professionals.
Use of professional social networks affords researchers and professionals the opportunity to share their work across larger audiences of like-minded professionals, fosters the development of new collaboration, and offers a forum for online dialogue among remote colleagues. Digital and social media are not only acceptable for the modern practicing physician, but have become necessary elements for relating to patients and practicing medicine. It has also created an exciting outlet for people to see news and stay updated on current events in the world…
Face book has given our society a better way of life and it has aided people in their daily lives. Social media is not the enemy; it is our ally and it has provides us with resources that we never knew before. It is inexpensive and easy to use. They signify a trend towards more interaction whereby people create as well as consume content. It is possible to share stories, produce other content and influence the media environment. A striking aspect of face book is that a spontaneous burst of protest can be initiated by one individual in a single post and widely shared, sharing experiences and having one’s voice heard on social channels can create a sense of empowerment – of feeling less alone with a personal struggle, and more confidence in showing a part of the self that might usually remain hidden.

Face book offers an accessible, widely available means for a bi-directional flow of information between the public and the authorities. In the crisis, all emergency responders used and leveraged social media networks for communicating both with the public and among themselves.
In recent years, face book has emerged as important, near real-time communication channel and technology during emergency response. It consists of tools that enable open and online exchange of information through conversation, interaction and exchange of user generated content. The different social media channels have become an integral tool in the response of official authorities and the general public to emergency situations. Face book helps to fulfil communication needs and wants. It is a convenient method of communication and provides the ability to stay connected with friends and family, but on the users own rate and time. Users can manage their interactions within their own schedule by choosing when they want to read and respond. It is efficient because it is a one-to-many method of communication which allows users to quickly spread information.
Face book is the new ‘milk-cartons’ in helping to find missing people. Loved ones and police now have access to hundreds of thousands of people with a single tweet, update, or photo stream. According to the National Centre for Missing or Exploited Children, social media has helped to resolved and recover 98.5% of AMBER alerts since 2005. Tools like SecuraChild, an AMBER alert system powered by social networks, dramatically increase chances of recovery by sending blasts of information to the social platforms.

WHY STUDENTS FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA RATHER THAN FACE TO FACE COMMUNICATION?

download

The students feel more comfortable on social media rather than face to face communication because some students are shy, they can express themselves in a better way as compared to face to face communication. They can use different emoticons to express their feelings. Moreover, they can speak whatever they want and can also hide their identity on social media. Some students are talkative and bold as they speak without thinking and thus, they are more comfortable to give their views to others. Some students feel easier to confront each other on social media specially males and females, because they can interact in a better way. Furthermore, Social networking becomes a traditional and trending way to meet new people and become friends. It is a place for people to get each other knows better. Apart from this, People don’t reveal too much information about themselves right away and this is why they put their information on their profile so that they can interact with more people easily.
