Disadvantages of Social Media.

I am sure that this is not a topic that you have come across for the first time. There have been innumerable talk shows on national television as well as lectures at home from the apparently learned elders who keep telling you the disadvantages of social media. Read ahead and find out if you are able to relate the points stated ahead to anyone you know.

1. Privacy: This is one point that we have heard time and again, everywhere. Literally! Privacy is a big issue on social media. This because though we feel that we have taken all the necessary steps and secured our account, it is not so. There has also recently been a huge case with the founder of one of the leading social networking sites of the world. In fact, even if you search for your name of search engine and then check the images, you will be able to see your posts.

2. Time waste: A lot of time is wasted on social media. This time can be used in doing something productive such as earning money or gaining knowledge. However, we just let go of it. It is true that time and tide wait for no man. But, people are yet to realize this. In fact, each morning too, people first check their profiles instead of going for a morning walk and getting active and fit.

3. Too much public information: It is very easy to get addicted to social media. This is because you need to do nothing. All you have to do is sit in a corner and stare at your phone screen or the laptop screen. This is where you also start posting each and every detail of yours and to nothing remains personal.

4. Political problems: Social media has been known to carry incorrect information leading to political issues in a number of parts of the world.

Though these are the disadvantages of social media, you may still use it if you know how to be careful.
