Privacy Issue – When you use Social media then you upload your photographs, videos and gives your personal details. Which can be check by anyone and maybe someone can misuse your things.

Fraud & Hacking – Now a days some people are doing hacking of social media account and they misuse of their account which is not good for anyone. Apart from this there are some fraud who manipulate innocent people and can take money and some information from them that is very dangerous for anyone. So I suggest to everyone please don’t give you personal detail and account detail on social media to anyone if it is necessary then give via phone or email but not through social media.

Addiction & Time Waste – This is a very big problem for young generation which is increasing day by day because so many of children are using social media for their fun and entertainment and forget about their study and family. By doing this young generations are wasting their time which is not right for anyone. I suggest to young generation don’t use social media more than 1 hrs a day (Specially for students) and give time to your carrier and your family which will help you to grow your life.

Health problem – When some people use of social media a lot then it will effect on their health because when you work on mobile and computer whole day it will effect your eyes and brain. After some years it will give you mentally and eyes problem as well. I suggest everyone use social media in limit but don’t use excess.

Relationship Issue – If we see there are some benefits of making relation on Social media than there are some disadvantage also of making relation on social media as well. Because someone can cheat you over relationship issue. There are so many examples like that some boys give fake belief of marriage with a girl and after taking advantage they leave her or many people make fake id to make relation with someone which is very dangerous for anyone life.

Now we have see advantage and disadvantage of Social media. If we use in proper way then definitely we can get more benefits from social media but as we know if we use in wrong way or without any guidance then Social media can ruin our life. So we have to use Social media wisely and for good work which we can get benefit in our life.
