power of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Academia,
ResearchGate is perhaps greater than the power of any individual; but sometimes
they have been abused as
well by the users through providing access information which has been a
violation of the code and conduct of social media. The power of social networks
is enormously influential. The combination of the internet with social media
websites creates something memorable. The speed of the internet and the
internet itself is an example of artificial intelligence through which anything
can be spread within a minute worldwide; social media is its narrative to
produce any information. The voices of Egypt
remained composed to defeat their tainted President Hosni Mubarak, which had
been spread throughout the globe. It is an example of the power of the social
network. The power of social media works as a revolution from any part of the
world. From the perspective of the revolutionary process, it is a blessing for
the awareness and information about any community, any incidents, and
platform of social media helps to unite the voice of people against unfairness,
and thus the voice has been larger than themselves. Once the voice turns into a
powerful message it has created problems always to throughout the corruption,
fascism. History has proved that the unity of human voice has sunk powerful
people like Adolf Hitler, Hosni Mubarak, Gaddafi etc. From this point, it has
been cleared that social media is a characterizes or narrative which has a way
of lending itself to this quality of control over negative aspects. Social media is
connectivity from around the world through which people can communicate easily
at present, such as through skype, messenger, various electronic online
platforms such as zoom, google meet etc. The universe is combined with various
dissimilarities such as differences of values, beliefs, religion, culture etc.
and it creates various boundaries among humanities, and among demographic
sides. Social media is an actual beauty where boundaries have been eradicated
through amalgamation among world humanities. It has made everyone stand
equally on a platform through networking. Online classes especially in the
pandemic scenario are blessings for the field of education. Education through
online delivery has provided learning resources to every student from around
the world. Social media like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn has sections to
help people professional, find out jobs. Social media helps to find out lost
people and reunite them with their close ones. The innovation of
technology through social media or networking brings the renaissance of
information worldwide. Television and print media are not that stronger than
electronic media because of inaccurate information`s sometimes. Social media through
electronic version are a way to build an online community such as WhatsApp and
Telegram people network and communities in various fields for innovation of the
world about anything. However, cyberbullying, hacking, reputation, scams and
fraudulence, addiction, health issues are few areas of disadvantages of social
someone through creating a fake account is cyberbullying. Electronic media and
networks are forms of this social curse in our society. Bullying is now a
fashion through the internet in the name of cyberbullying. Sending threat
messages, abusing someone through online chatting are all examples of cyberbullying.
Hacking is another
disadvantage of social media through electronic mode which is stealing
someone`s personal information and share others without any permission of the
owner. Stealing someone`s information is a big loss of personal life which is
happening through hacking personal information. Fraudulence and scams are
the curses of social networking. It has been reported in networking sides where
people have been fooled by others into considering something or buying etc. There are many bloggers on
Instagram, Facebook which is hard to identify about their genuine engagement.
Social media is very addictive and damaging personal lives through hatred
images. People are addicted to
Facebook. Teenagers are the main target of these electronic media where they
focus themselves through online activities constantly. Social media is a medium
for the creation of social and mental disbalance. Because of addictiveness,
people are experiencing negative side effects such as headache, eye strain,
sleep deprivation etc. Therefore social media is
a narrative through which society can be changed. It can be changed through
people`s reactions to its utilization. Whether they use social media positively
or negatively. Social
media websites can operate as both curses and blessings in our society and it
depends on users of social media networks.Therefore, social networks
are neither good nor bad but a tender, and a form of artificial intelligence.
