Social media, the “lifeline” of present day society, as it connects people with each other, where they interact with wide range of people and groups and surely, it has its impact also, Social media here means the fun media, where people scroll endlessly and timelessly for hours and hours and not only people but the young generation or say teenagers are very much attracted to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc. So the question is it good or bad? It is both, as people is recognizing the technology and can do productive for future, on the other hand, humans are prone more to bad than good, so they get diverted from good path of life and face severe health issues.

But this social media can also be termed as “Profession Building Media” where the young generation who are graduates or under-graduate can built their contacts by Tumblr, Linkedin or Internshala or Freelancer or WordPress according to their Interest areas, The newly made application which made easy everything got stick to mind and people get ideas of developing or updating the same, from which they can earn money, where things can be sold which influence the mind of consumer to buy product online
But each coin has two sides, positive and negative, the media which is the fourth pillar of democracy is showing fake news, spreading hatred leaving the riots and violence among people and nations which arealarming call. Even politicians used to comment on each other insults, invade and inviting violence indirectly, also TV stars like Kangana Ranaut who recently commented on Farms Bill was get accused of Inviting violence by farmers just like Citizenship Bill, as media not shows the real picture but shows what can be the news which can just increase the TRP of their channel, and how lies strike to the mind of people and they become violative without knowing the real truth.
