why you should LIKE social media
Social media can also be good for many reasons. A shy person can be more outgoing online, which could lead to them having more friends in real life. It’s easier to stumble upon an old friends Instagram and to start a conversation than to get their number. I have found many of my camp friends through Instagram and it is a good way to keep in touch. When we have likes or comments on social media it is a feeling similar to winning money. This positive response can make us happier. ‘’In fact, according to a report last year by the nonprofit child advocacy group Common Sense Media, one in five teens said social media makes them feel more confident, compared with 4% who said it makes them feel less so.’’ Online it is easier to find people with similar interests as you. ‘’ another benefit is for kids who might feel slightly isolated to connect with other tweens and teens who share their same interests,’’ says Rebecca Levey, a co-founder of a video sharing website.
