A Speech on “What I Think About Social Media”

Good (—) one and all. I am here today to talk about what I think about social media. In today’s world, the majority of people are active on social media. Though people of all ages now access social media, it is the youth who are more active and live on social media platforms. Social media is a digital technology, where users create, share, and receive content regarding a variety of matters in the world. It includes a wide range of websites and apps. It is a form of expression through virtual communities and networks. 

Facebook is the biggest social media platform today with over two billion people using it every month. Other famous and trending social media platforms are Youtube, WhatsApp, Messenger, WeChat, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tumblr, TikTok, Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Telegram and so much more. People use social media for various reasons. Some people use it to stay connected with their friends and to find new friends. Some people use it to find jobs and to recruit people for jobs. Some people use it for entertainment purposes, to entertain and be entertained. 

I use most of these media regularly. I mostly use social media to stay connected to people. I feel it is a good opportunity to have relations with people in this fast-moving world where no one has time for anything. Through social media, we get to know what all are going on in people’s lives, what they are doing, how they are feeling, etc. I get to know what my friends are up to and if they are doing fine. I also get to meet new people from all over the world and talk to them which would not have been possible without social media. 

I also love seeing the creativity of people on the internet. Many people use this platform to showcase their talents and I am always amused by such acts, be it singing, dancing, acting, painting, or other activities. I also follow travel vloggers as I love traveling and visiting places. It introduces me to new places and cultures, and thus helps me to plan and decide my future trips. Food vloggers are my next favorites as I love trying out different cuisines. I get introduced to new foods, new recipes, and restaurants. Apps like Pinterest helps me boost my aesthetic side and also are very informational. I get various tips, tricks, and life hacks from such media. 

It is through social media that I get information from across the globe. It is not possible to sit and watch news channels or follow the newspaper as I have lots of school work to do. Social media makes it convenient for me. Many youngsters today can raise their voices against injustice because of social media. People are aware of the social issues happening not in just the country they reside, but also internationally. I thus think very highly of social media and feel it as a necessity for everyone to have access to it. Thank you.
