W8: Social Media in Society

Social media has become a very popular and useful tool for people in today’s society.  People can use social media to impact society by sharing information about news, current events, and entertainment.  While most people I know use social media to spread true information about news or entertainment, many people in the world do not.  While an advantage of social media is that information can be spread quickly to people across the world, it can also be a disadvantage if people spread false information or information that is harmful to people.  For example, many celebrities use social media to their advantage by promoting their television shows, online videos, movies, or music. However, social media can negatively affect celebrities if people post false information about them, spread harmful information about them, or hack and share their personal information.
