2)Youth can further explore topics that they're interested in through online social networking - By making connections with other people who have the same interests , they can learn and exchange knowledge with others . For example , Emodo is a social platform for teachers to interact with their students . Students can ask their teachers about the topics that they do not or less understand in class when they are at home . 64% of companies are on two or more social networks for recruiting because of the wider pool of applicants, more efficient searches, and no need for an outside recruiter. 89% of employers have hired employees through LinkedIn, 26% through Facebook, and 15% through Twitter. One in six job-seekers credit social media for helping find their current job. 52% of job-seekers use Facebook for the job search, 38% use LinkedIn, and 34% use Twitter. NEGATIVE key example of a problem resulting from the lack of harmonization in the government use of social media can be seen in soliciting comments on proposed regulations. Some agencies now solicit comments through social media about pro- posed regulations, but are not able to respond to questions people pose in reaction during the notice and comment period due to laws preventing them from responding to questions in the notice and comment period.However,such inaction is antithetical to users’ expectations for social media, where they assume that they should receive a response to their questions, creating a direct conflict between two policies. As a result, many of the people posing the questions about the proposed regulations do not understand why no one is responding, which then serves to reduce future participation in government online by making users feel that their input is being ignored.

*gives sense of belonging as they're able to let people 'know' you, and you 'know' them

*however, heavy reliance on these sites causes them to isolate themselves in real life

*more anti social due to lack of fundamentals on how to interact face to face/ refusal to learn so they avoid stress of face to face interaction

*in virtual world, we're given time and freedom to make clever or witty responses

*hence, social media hinders development of strong communication skills,causes social isolation Journalist Nqaba Matshazi and social media enthusiast said people had become less social and slaves to social media, neglecting their already existing relationships and focusing on their pseudo-friends and pseudo-acquaintances.

“People are now connected in a virtual world but disconnected in the real world, even when one visits relatives; they are still busy on their phones, connecting with their pseudo-friends.”

57% of people talk to people more online than they do in real life -The Social Skinny Be Careful Not To Overshare

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and other social media sites are a wonderful way to share photos, observations and life updates with your friends and followers. But be selective about what you post for the world to see .
