INFOGRAPHIC: What Makes Social Media so Influential? | General Paper 10'13 Jenna Chiew Kai Yi | Scoop.it
If your impression of social media is limited to your friends posting cat videos and teenagers glued to their iPhones – think again.

Jenna Chiew Kai Yi's insight:

Synopsis: 

This article pertains to the issue of how social networking sites like Facebook & Twitter have such great impact on the 21st Century that we're living in. This article also presents the positive aspects of such influence such as diminishing distance and facillitating effective communtication. 

 

Commentary:

As cliche as this may sound, I do subscribe to the notion that social media is a double edged sword. While it could be used to compliment business transactions and strengthen relationships, it could also bring about adverse impacts. With social media, it is inevitable that some users would abuse it by viewing inappropriate sites. Social media could also encourage the act of cyber bullying, which would cause emotional stress to some Internet users. 

However, to say that social media is entirely wrong and vile is a biased and hypocritical statement since we ourselves use and frequent them. The pivotal issue is that people of the 21st Century must exercise self responsibility and be cautious of their online conduct. This way, Social Media would be able to achieve it's noble aim of integrating the human race.
