Yes there are pros and cons for social media. Like it can help you keep in touch with people all over the world just to mention one but then there is the downside of it. Kids get lost in it, or people use it to hack into others personal space. If you were wondering if there are any pros to it. Here are 9 ways it has changed our lives...
1. We have an unmatched “Entrepreneurial Spirit.”
This trait has been ingrained in our culture more by chance than choice. After all, when it comes to getting the life we’ve always wanted, Millennials have learned that it’s not out there waiting for us on a silver platter.
2. We are up-to-date and informed on the political landscape of our world.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has read news articles or researched recently-announced political policies on my cell phone. And I’m definitely not the only one to have had someone make a comment about how typical it is that I can’t tear my eyes away from the screen.
3. We care about social justice.
Amongst young people today, it is no longer cool to simply “not care.” We are informed about what’s going on, and with countless outlets to express our opinions online, through our personal profiles as well as anonymously, we are flooded with opportunity to develop and articulate opinions.
4. We don’t just accept or “tolerate” diversity, we welcome it.
Being in touch with people from cultures all over the world through social media plays a huge part in this. The world is getting smaller through our digital interconnectivity, and our welcoming attitude toward diversity is arguably the biggest pay-out of all.
5. We are connected, and we are compassionate.
A brief scan through my Facebook News Feed provides me with updates on the lives of people from my high school with whom I long ago lost contact.6. Our “lingo” extends far past “text slang.” After all, we spend more hours a day reading and writing than ever before.
Between texting our friends, writing emails, posting statuses and tweeting, our generation is writing all day long. In addition to that, we are reading just as much, if not more.7. We are self-aware.
The line between self-aware and self-absorbed is a faint one, and I’ll admit, our generation treads it closely. The natural result of having online profiles on multiple social networks is being all-too conscious of what we think, say and do and how it reflects on who we are.
8. We prioritize health and fitness.
Social media outlets have not only become a trend, they have also given us an opportunity to encourage, advise and motivate one another to a healthier lifestyle.
9. We are determined to defy the expectation.
