Think of the first thing that you do after waking up. Check your phone, maybe? Browse a bit of Facebook, or check some Instagram stories. Statistics report that about 50% of people in the age group of 18-24 log in to Facebook right after waking up. That’s the power of Social Media. Nine out of 10 teenagers have at least one social media account (Source: pewinternet.com). Be it Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, or any other social media platform, it is filled with teenagers who love to spend their time on Social Media.

But is that it? Is social media only for passing time, or is it only a way with which you can interact with people? I don’t think so. I think it can be utilized in much bigger ways than that. Though social media has often been criticized for being too addictive and distracting resulting in affecting a student’s academic performance, there could be some upsides too. Social Media can help in a lot of ways in current education to teachers, students as well as parents. With the help of social media, a lot of objectives can be achieved, which couldn’t happen due to conventional communication methods.

The most important and the most beneficial aspect that I think of social media is its reach. It can be used to our benefit in such diverse ways, that sometimes it makes me wonder where we would have been. You may be sitting thousands of miles away from me, yet reading this article. Similarly, social media can too, provide with great career and intern opportunities if used correctly.

LinkedIn, the largest professional network in the world boasts of 500 million active users which are ever increasing. From small companies to MNCs, all have their presence. A good profile and the right connections may land someone a dream job, all through social media.

Social media can help create much better interaction between students, teachers, and parents. Earlier where a lot of parent-teacher meetings were held, nowadays, teachers can just create the same session by going live. Also, one on one interaction has greatly improved with the advent of social media.

You can share your study material with everyone in one group (no need to add hundreds of CCs in the mail). Also, engaging in debates, discussion on topics, answering queries has become a lot easier with the help of social media.

Quora has become a great place for getting answers to your questions. From the silliest and stupidest questions to the most sophisticated ones, it has got it all. And if your question is not already asked and answered, ask one, and an army of 190 million Qurans (as they like to call themselves) will be ready to answer.

Social media is highly interactive and due to this reason, it can be very helpful in projects. Back when social media wasn’t available, creating a successful survey or poll was a real pain. But now it has become much easier. Also, sharing of articles and website links has become a lot easier. Keeping track of homework, submissions, displaying notices have become more convenient.

There is no denying the fact that social media is harmful in some ways, and being addicted to it is even worse, but there are a lot of positives and benefits that can be extracted from social media too. And if we use it to our benefit, it may result in changing our lives for good.

“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it”.
