Social networks have become an integral part of our lives. We use them for business correspondence, on the road in public transport, for communication with friends and relatives, with whom we are divided thousands of kilometers away. Someone with the help of social networks makes new friends and even families. It was not always so, but in the modern world, which is developing at an ever faster pace, social media is playing an increasingly important role. People are increasingly using virtual media in order to get news, find trends, follow fashion and stay abreast of developments in the world. Why is it more convenient for a person to be online?
In virtual communication, a person is seen as he wants to appear. To do this, it is enough to create a "correct" profile. Photos from the right angle, the video of the interesting places all over the world, following the leading trends - signs of any successful profile on top social networks like Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Popularity is measured in how many followers, subscribers, likes and reposts you have. Social media really replaced families and friends for many media users. It's much easier to pick someone on Tinder, than to do it in real life. If you cannot get recognition and respect from one account, you can try with another - it's like living a second, third, tenth life. Of course, this brings not only positive, but also negative aspects to a person's life. Do not forget that virtual reality is secondary, and the real importance is played by real communication and communication with real people. For many withdrawn and shy people, dependent on the media, there are problems in communication in real life, it becomes more and more difficult to go to the store, go public transport, get a job, etc.
However, many people not only communicate in networks, but also work there. Modern technologies are literally tied to media and give unlimited opportunities for the realization of their social skills. Take, for example, advertising. It is everywhere - from aggressive, pop-ups and commercials in front of the video, ending with unobtrusive references to products on YouTube and stories in Instagram. Similar technologies use PR agencies. It does not matter, the company or an individual, thanks to the media, you can create a certain image, which is necessary for the client, just like a profile in a social network. This is a very convenient and effective tool for working online. With the help of media it is easier to get a third-party opinion, and not only to receive, but also to manage it. Any opinions or comments are heard. Also feedback and rating play a very important role. Now you do not need to rely on personal experience, because there are online ratings that are based on the opinions and feedback of other users, it all simplifies our lives even more.
Thanks to social networks, people learn about promotions, events, discounts in stores. There are even special interest groups, where everyone can find friends who are interested in the same things you do. You do not need to leave the house, simply enter the desired query in the search box. Gradually, we observe the situation when a person from communication in a real society turns to communication in the Internet society. Thanks to the network, you can find the most diverse information that you are currently interested in. Say more - the Internet is all the knowledge accumulated by mankind for thousands of years of development. And if you use all this correctly, it opens the widest horizons.
To date, we can safely say that social networks are like business, as they develop with incredible speed. The incredible popularity of social networks, forums and blogs has made them the main platforms for exchanging views on any issues, including on purchases of certain goods and services.
More and more people use the media to kill their free time. And it's not just lonely singles who do it. Families with children are also active users of social networks and media Many children consciously choose media as a hobby. The word gamer has long been a household name, because there are so many children and teenagers, and also adult people who play online games, where there are already whole communities, and the gaming audience consists of several tens of thousands of people. There they also communicate, share interests and opinions, watch advertising and buy goods. All this contributes to the further development of media and distraction from family and real friends.
Is it bad or not? Who are we to judge. We can only say that we shouldn’t forget your family and friends, and it is worth spending at least 30 minutes per day to give a call. Because in the network, although it seems that there are a lot of users, only a few can really help, and there are not so many people who are not indifferent. Not everyone who looks good to you can have good intentions. So, pay attention to what is happening around you, to your children, family and friends and do not ignore those who need you.
