Effects Of Social Media - The Social Media is More Damaging Than The Gun

Social media is a forum that allows people to connect to their friends and family easily through the international network (Internet).

You make use of facebook, twitter, instagram, whatsapp and fail to see the negative effects it has on us.
Some even make use of it religiously not seeing its negative impact on their life.

While a gun is a weapon incorporating a metal tube from which bullets, shell or other missiles are propelled by explosive force, typically making a characteristic loud, sharp nise.

 From my researchs and enthusiasm for articles, I have come to the conclusion that the social media is more damaging.

My points are below.

NOTE: If you are interested in an article which you can't find on our site , please;just write the topic as a comment and we will give you a quick response.

          To put the horse before the cart, the social media has made people dependent in controlling their moral lives in the sense that; Today, users are seen on their phones constantly checkiing their apps in hopes of brief entertainment.

 Many want to know what is trending and others can't seem to stop tweeting and direct messaging.

negative effects of social media
This will soon become an addiction which people can't do without.

The common statement that most people utter is that "I can't do without my phone".

This raises the question, is it right to depend on social media to run your personal life.

                    To shine more light on this, social media corrupts the inner man which is me dangerous than gun. because the gun can only kill the flesh, but can't kill the soul.

                But the social media which corrupts the inner man,is capable of damaging the soul. Please don't misunderstand me, through the social media, countless number of people will lose heaven and countless has lost heaven.

   So if it is the social media that will make me lose heaven, I had rather do away with it.

         Moreover, the social media is more damaging because it gives people the forum to give false and unreliable information, which has led to the death of many, and many will still die through the false information allover the internet.
