Some people think that social networking sites have a huge negative impact on both individuals and society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In
this
present world, social networking
sites
have gained huge interest among
people
. Some
people
believe that these social
sites
have enormous negative effects on both individuals and
society
.
However
, I partially agree with
this
statement with some disagreements.
This
essay will discuss the topic in detail. To support proponents’ claim, it is true that there are negative sides to social
media
sites
like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
First
and foremost,
people
spend too much time chatting with others whom they do not even know in person and tend to ignore their closer ones around them.
For example
, when a family is having dinner together, the children keep on using their phones to communicate with
people
online rather than communicating with their family members.
Consequently
,
this
affects the bond between the family members.
Nevertheless
, I believe that there are
also
a couple of positive impacts on individuals and
society
by utilizing social
media
.
Firstly
,
people
can connect with others around the world and learn more about those who live in another part of the world.
For instance
, they can share information about famous holiday destinations, cultures, food and activities that can be done in their countries. By
this
, those who share similar interests may build a good bonding between them, even though they are distant. To conclude, social
media
platforms have both positive and negative sides.
Thus
, the belief of some
people
that these
sites
have huge negative impacts on individuals and
society
is not entirely true as there are
also
good sides to networking
sites
.
Therefore
, it totally depends on
society
whether they are going to be focused only on the negative impacts or rather make use of the networking benefits from these
media
.
