Isn’t it a very common thing nowadays to find every product pack asking people to ‘like’ them or join their community of Facebook and Twitter? Initially, these things used to bother me and I felt irritated about how people take everything to social media and want to obtain benefits. But, when I got an idea about the entire scheme of things going around in the world, I understood the need for doing so. The competition all around us is so neck-to-neck that there is hardly sufficient place for people to walk silently and steadily. People who keep silent about their existence, get lost in oblivion as there is always someone else to take over their place. Those individuals or companies, who do not want to get washed out of people’s minds, take innovative methods of advertising themselves. This is exactly what social networking does for people today.
Making a prominent place
Television, radio and newspapers are still dominant modes of advertisements, but the problem with them is that they have existed long enough for people to keep their interest going in them. Moreover, the younger generation is not much into newspapers and television, as much they are into gaming consoles and buy more facebook likes. Surely, internet is their newest abode and they learn and unlearn everything from here. This is the reason, companies, educational sectors and politicians are taking the help of social media to reach out to more and more people and especially the youth. From election results to soccer match results, every kind of update can be received from these networks. Moreover, those people who do not have any idea about a particular subject, will find it easier to form opinions about it, with more people taking about it at an online forum. Even friends, who remain aloof from these social sites, are often forgotten by others!
Everything in one
These social sites help people to do almost anything and everything. Not only serious discussions and advertisement for products, but also playing gaming, chatting with a distant relative and sharing latest news, can be done here. The best part is that it can be done at within minimal expenses. With talks of cell phone radiation causing harm to the brain and excess television-watching damaging the eye, these networking mediums are the best way to connect with people and remain updated with news. It is feasible and convenient. Today, people do not have to go back home and sit on their PCs. With in-built social networking sites on their smart phones and tabs, they can keep tab of the world around them, anywhere and at any time. Surely, media and social networking has a commendable role to play in the lives of people. It serves the purposes of all which is the main reason behind its ever increasing popularity. People are tremendously understanding, their importance and are taking their careers ahead through these mediums. I have been greatly benefitted and encouraging other people around me to do the same for their own benefits.
