Why social Media is good

Hey readers,

We all get bogged down in the negative side of social media, so let’s for today celebrate all the good aspects of social media.


The internet is a good way to express yourself. I know for me I find verbal communication really, really difficult due to being autistic. Therefore, writing things down on my blog has really helped. There is also a great autistic community on twitter for example where you can openly discuss topics, it is great to get responses back. It can help other people understand you and help get more personal awareness out on specific topics.

As a parent and someone who struggles with mental health, loneliness is a feeling that has occurred over the years. I find the internet fantastic to connect with other similar people, whether it be through blogging, reading other people’s experience, tweeting or even discussing worries/feelings in forums. Also,the internet can be a useful way to distraction yourself from focusing on negativity. It really has helped me get out of that funk.


The internet is a splendid place if you want to get lost. With so much information out there, it is great to enhance your learning. You can even find scholarly type materials on google or good old YouTube.

The internet is definitely one way to get free entertainment and to do stuff without breaking the bank balance.  There is so many options, some examples are; watching YouTube videos, listening to radio, using social media and evening writing blogs 😉

If we look at recent events from this year especially in politics it demonstrates that the internet has a powerful voice. The cyber world can influence for the good and make positive changes. A example of this would be with the way the internet has evolved politics with such matters of politicians being more transparency, though it is a slow process, it is something that is being taken seriously, especially with the way that majority of people get their information from the internet. Gone were the days when it was a two leadership battle, with having the internet it opens doors for more choice. Therefore, politicians have to work harder to get them likes and ultimately the power to change the lives of the ordinary public.

What positives do you find in social media?

  1. It’s nice to read an article about the positives of the Internet and social media … 🙂 This week I’ve been trying to learn to crochet by watching YouTube videos and it’s so much cheaper than attending classes. It gives my kids a giggle too….watching me struggle haha

  2. Social media is definitely a great way to connect, and to access help or resources. I can’t imagine life without it! It’s strange how it has both permanence and disposability though. There’s less, “yesterday’s news is today’s fish and chips wrapper,” and more, “yesterday’s news is pushed down by today’s likes.” #MMBC x

  3. Great post. It’s nice to hear someone praising social media for a change. Social media does have it’s negatives, which are widely reported on, but on the whole I think it’s fantastic. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives for me 😊 #TwinklyTuesday

  4. I am so much more ‘social’ on social media than real life. I’m introvert and this is typical. It’s great to be able to switch off and choose when and who you speak with. Nice to read some positives! #twinklytuesday

  5. For all that there are a number of negatives to the internet and social media, I think that there are a thousand positives. We literally have a world of knowledge and experience at our finger tips now and we would be lost without it. I’ve also got back in touch with so many friends that I would have otherwise never found and lost all contact with over the years. It definitely has its place if you ask me. Thank you for sharing this with #DreamTeam x

  6. Social media certainly has its pros and cons. For me, the biggest pro is having information at my fingertips. If I need to know something all I have to do is search! And YouTube is fab for its wealth of educational tutorials and entertainment videos.

    Thank you for stopping by and linking up with the #MMBC.
