As I’ve come to learn over the course of this semester, social media changes lives. It can make or break someone, so it’s important to take note of how social media has affected the people around us.
Social media has had many positive effects. Take Mark Zuckerberg for example. He’s the man. Sure, he did some shady things to get to where he is today, but he is successful none the less, all because of social media. Forbes recently released Zuckerberg’s net worth. Are you ready? He is worth… $13.5 billion dollars! Tell Priscilla Chan to take a seat. I would love a chance with him!! Big money!
Social media does change lives, but not always for the better. Couples have been busted for cheating. Teachers have been fired for making inappropriate comments to their students. Criminals have been caught for admitting their crimes.
Let’s face it. The world is full of idiots. They will say whatever they want with no regard to their actions. Look at me; I’ll say pretty much anything on my blog posts, but I would never use Facebook to contact someone I was cheating with. I would never flirt with a professor (online ha!), and I would never, ever admit to any illegal activity I’ve engaged in. (Sure, I smoke weed, but who gives a fuck? I wouldnt’ rob a bank and then post something about it.) The point is, do what you do, but don’t be a dumbass.
