It’s no secret that social media has permeated our lives. Whether it’s Facebook or Instagram, few of us (including myself) can avoid scrolling down other people’s feeds. But what does social media have on society—and how does it impact the world today?

Big data, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things are transforming the world as we know it. And social media is part of that transformation. Everyone uses social media, and this social network is constantly evolving. Certain social media platforms are more popular than others, and some types of content are more popular than others. Facebook is king when it comes to social media platforms—it claims to have over one billion users—but it’s also the first to admit it’s not perfect.

  • Social media is going to be an essential component of any business strategy – Social media has changed the way we communicate with one another. As online commerce continues its steady climb, businesses must embrace social media to drive more sales and traffic. In fact, a new front in customer service has emerged through today’s method of interacting with customers on social media.
  • Social media may be the banks of the future – Digital banking and social media have become synonymous. Whether you bank online, via your smartphone, or a social media app, you are interacting with your bank. The days of visiting a branch, waiting in line, and speaking to a teller are slowly disappearing. Online banking and social media have given banks a new way to interact with their customers—and customers love them for it.
  • Social media is shaking up public health and healthcare – The use of social media in public health and healthcare is exploding. Social media has changed the healthcare system by creating a more connected, cooperative, and collaborative relationship between healthcare providers and their patients. Social media is being used to communicate health messages to patients, promote healthier lifestyles, and provide information about diseases and medical breakthroughs.
  • Social media is helping us better respond to disasters – Social media has forever changed the way we do business and interact with each other. The social media networks themselves are interwoven into our personal and business life. Businesses now use social media as a major marketing strategy, in hospitals and doctor’s offices, in your personal interactions with your friends, and even in disasters. Social media now plays an important part in disaster response.
  • Social media on politics – Social media has dramatically changed our world. Today, nearly every social platform—from Facebook to LinkedIn to Twitter to Snapchat—is used throughout the world. But while social media has turned our world into a global village, it has also created many controversies about how we as a society interact with one another. And, of course, social media has played a big role in today’s political environment.

Social media has become such a big part of our everyday lives that it’s hard to remember it was once considered a fairly novel idea. Today, social media is an essential way to reach customers, maintain brands, and even connect with others around the world. Social media is a powerful tool, and it’s changing the world for the better—and in some cases, for the worse.

In what ways has it changed the world for the worse? If you’ve ever browsed social media, you’ve probably seen posts about how social media is ruining the lives of people. The line between social media and reality is blurry, and it’s causing people to behave in ways they otherwise wouldn’t. People lie, cheat, steal, and bully on social media and do so without the fear of the consequences they would get in the real world.
