Social Media

What is Social Media?

Social media is a method of online communication whereby people can share information in real-time. It specifically refers to the various websites and applications that allow people to create networks and share content such a messages, news, ideas, pictures, audios and videos quickly, and efficiently.

The increased availability and use of social media has enabled people to connect with friends and family, to catch up on current events, and, perhaps most importantly, to entertain themselves. Social media is an integral part of the lives of people everywhere. However, studies have found a link between loneliness and social media — excessive social media usage can lead to loneliness and isolation.
