It's quite sad cause instead of social media is helping or a way of sharing the journey , now it doesn't , it kill.

And on the other hand, social networks help solve crimes and find criminals. Thanks to various selfies and geotags people involved in this or that incident were disclosed.
Long live to social media!

No, I think social media are a remedy to a disease, the disease of compartmentalized, uneducated thinking. Just as reading or studying is considered beneficial to human understanding, communicating with other people via social media is similarly beneficial. Of course, studying and learning can be put to deleterious uses, but I believe that the predominance of people who intend to do good, creative things with their learning outbalances those who intend to do evil, destructive things

I think it's the best disease ever, if it's that. It's become a way to keep in touch with friends and families that didn't exist before. While some may become so immersed in online activities that limit their real world experiences, I think humans remain incredibly social and it's just another way to enjoy communication.

It is though, to be honest i quite feel that it's not just cancer but a toxic , a toxicity that bringing all the aspects of toxic and implant on our brains you know what i'm saying, let's face the reality, the sad reality that social media can kill too though. I wish we can turn back time to those moments or era that letters exist.

It's quite sad cause instead of social media is helping or a way of sharing the journey , now it doesn't , it kill.

Totally agree on the idea of toxic instead of cancer. Cyberbullying, in all of its forms, is certainly on the rise in 2018 and will most likely retain the same trend in 2019.
Bullying is more evident for people of younger generations, and while it can be to a certain degree be controlled while they`re at school or university, it becomes extremely hard to do something about bullying on the web. People feel that computer screen makes them invincible so they go all out on attacking others. It is the matter of lack of education and socio-cultural concepts, the toxicity problem should be addressed on the stage long before web - in schools and during upbringing.

Fake news has becoming rampant nowadays especially in social media. I think that it is because it is easy to alter storues and evwn make stories in social media simply because first, there is no law regulizing the spread of fake news. People are not afraid and are not careful when it comes to this issue because there are no technical consequences for this. Second, people, due to our lon exposure in social media, we are unconsciously and consciously believing what is fake. We tend to absorb those and eventually making a false judgement and irrelevant decisions --- and that is how social media are becoming cancerous.

I feel that yes, bullying is one problem, but the other problem is that kids (well, lets be honest, not only kids) generate their self-worth relying on social media and their followers often leading to depression when their fellow classmates and friends have far more followers and likes on social media platforms.

What is even worse is that now when having a YouTube channel and being sort of a YouTube celebrity is also popular among kids and often 14-15 year olds have quite a big fanbase, they are not quite there to ponder on what they are really saying. Often topics like "shcool sucks, why do we even need it" or "I hate my teacher" are being discussed and other kids who have created role models out of personals take up the same attitude...

What I want to say here is that all of this both bullying and sort of putting yourself out there should maybe be more up for discussion and maybe even handled and discussed at an early age what consequences all of these things might have. Maybe if kids grow up with understanding what harm all of this might cause they will be more cautious with what they are doing and saying.

Many technological billionaires do, in fact, prevent their children to spend too much time in SN. Why? Because they clearly realize the harm that social networks do to you.

Well the reality it is, if i will be a billionaire man, i should too keep my children away from doing social media, one of the factor that people now days, mostly the teens, suffering on a concept that they feel suffocating by the fact that the longer they hold on the toxic they become.

Yes it is like a diary or a journal book that you can posted in and say what on your mind, but now it becoming more and more toxic though.

Social media is just a waste of an great potential.

The truth is we can easily check the authenticity of a fake news, it is just we just too lazy that make it simply broadcasted. We need to have a critical thinking to solve the problem, we need to look at the bigger picture instead of just clicking/sharing around an unreliable news to prevent continuing the deceive chain.

This is just hilarious,it can be a cancer for some but it has changed lives especially in third world countries so it isn't entirely bad.
Mr. Patrick Soon-Shiong underlines the fake news on social media. The fake news won't be good anywhere in the world.

I also disagree with you, because I can’t imagine my life  without social media! Because it irreplaceable for modern society!!!
I somewhat agree, yes, we cannot imagine our lives without social media anymore. This is where we get our everyday news, talk to family and friends etc... but then again, could it be replaced? I think yes, I don't know with what yet, but as everything is being developed so fast I think soon we will have a totally different understanding of social media than we do at this very moment. There's been so much talk about how Facebook is dying etc... that probably means that people are craving for new solutions and where there is demand there will be a solution.

 don't think that social media is cancer, that depends or how you use the social media. If you use to promote your business, meet new people and products, expand your number of friends and who knows maybe meet the love of your life you can make social media a great tool. But if you only use it for stalking and watch trash Videos you are going to waste a lot of time.

Social media is cancer but if we just use it correctly it will be not.

Social media is useful in different ways but it depends on how will you use it. Control and Discipline is the Key
If you use it for a good purpose its okay but if you use it in bad or use it for nothing and if you got addicted of using social media then it/you will become toxic.

They create social media to connect but we don't realize that we are disconnected with people around us.  
Lets not get lost in the world of social media because sometimes we don't appreciate and forgot the world that is right in front of us.

I don't use social media because I don't really see the point. If you want to talk to your friend, you can call them or text them. Even better, meet up with your friends in person and talk to each other face to face while you hang out. Where does social media come into any of that? I dunno. I don't care what everyone else does. I guess that's why I don't use social media.

If you think social media is cancer then what are you doing on this forum? Social media isn't cancer. People are the problem. Social media sure can be toxic but I think it's not just social media but the internet as a whole and how we use it. The issue with the internet is -- and especially social media - is people tend to be who they're not and project a lifestyle that is far from the truth. On this forum everyone hides behind a username and avatar and you have a screen to protect you from whatever you say. On social media like Facebook and Instagram people mostly just post the best aspects about their life. They post pictures or updates of their vacations abroad, or new clothes and flashy purchases, or when they're eating out at a fancy restaurant and generally having a good time. They're not going to post a selfie of them crying themselves to sleep at night or take a picture of the bill they've just received that they can't afford to pay and this skews people's realities and that leads to animosity and fomo. When someone see's someone else posting pictures living seemingly lavish lifestyles or just having something they don't have then people get upset and envious because they want that too, but it's usually not how they're actually living in reality. I think that's why social media can be very toxic and damaging to a lot of people's mental health but it's not really the cause but who we are as people and how how we use social media.

I think the anonymity the internet provides you is like a superpower in itself. It's like what happens when you give people guns. Cowards love them because it levels the playing-field. A coward would never stand up to a bully or someone that's twice the size of them in real life but they will if they've got a gun in their pocket because that makes them ten feet tall and as brave as a lion. If anything goes wrong then the gun is coming out. Same thing happens with the internet as the internet is their virtual gun. Some scrawny anemic teenager in his mom's basement can troll and get aggressive with whoever he wants because he has the protection of a screen and nobody is going to punch him in the face for being a twat so he says whatever he wants without consequence. He's living his life like the way he wished he could in reality just as people do on social media.

https://www.c[Suspicious link removed]m/2018/09/26/billionaire-la-times-owner-calls-social-media-the-cancer-of-our-time.html

For once, I agree with a billionaire.  Roll Eyes

Social Media is a perfect gateway to push fake news down the throat of all readers. It indeed is cancerous.
With the rise of AI and Bots. Fake news will be evermore a greater problem that has the potential to ignite fear, uncertainty and doubt. It can fool even the educated.

So... if WW3 happens... social media may play a part in causing it.

Life quality has vastly eroded due to social media so i'd say the word choice is perfect.

    I cannot say that I am depensive on social media itself, i can say there are advantages and disadvantages in social media it is depend on a person recieve the news how to handle for it, the one sending the news must have their responsibility on the news exposed.Like if you send false news to the public hoping that giving him/her a big sanction accordingly. but also socia media can help so many good things.
