Experts on psychology and sociology view social media as a double-edged sword. It certainly has improved our life in terms of how we can get information in a matter of seconds. On the other hand, it has become an agent for disinformation, reduced productivity, and unhealthy screen time habits.
Like all swords, people must know how to wield social media to their advantage. The first step is knowing what entails its use–the good, the bad, and the ugly.
