Conclusion of social media:-


as we have discussed both the positive impacts and negative impacts of social media . the technologist and innovators gave us these social media site for our advantages .but the youth and the narrow- minded people use it wrongly.these people spoil many lives by the mis-use of social media sites .they do not know that we people are connected to each other by these social media sites in these days.

In earlier times we were not connected to each other . in that time we were not able to share our joys and sorrows with each other or with family,friends or relatives. In earlier time people were share their joys and sorrows through a letter. A person has to wrote a letter to share any information.

When a person posted a letter to his family ,friends or relatives they will get that letter with in few days or with in a week .sometimes they were not get a letter .it is not much secure. it is more time consuming . Then our government allows us to use such kind of social media sites which are not much expensive and which saves our time.

So there is some responsibilities of our youth . Firstly the youth should be aware from the usage of these social media sites .because the mis-use of these social sites gives a big loss to our country and it will be dangerous to us .therefore government has to organize some awareness events by which users can learn how to use the social median sites. In the schools ,teachers have to gave knwoldege to students about these kinds of social median sites. so that they can use it correctly.if we use it by knowing there advantages and disadvantages ,then the social media is very helpful to got success in our life
