Lately, I've noticed that a lot of people are becoming more and more comfortable with social media. There are so many new videos to watch everyday and some could be good, bad, happy or even sad. The thing is we all are entertained by these people and we expect more from them, so after a large amount of views and likes... the video/picture is now viral and we the people want more. I actually found out that after awhile, the social media site pays the person for the amount of likes and views they get, so they just continue to upload more.

I really think this could be a good and bad thing for most people. If you are a singer or have some sort of talent, social media will definitely take you far in life with that and you might even make some major connections with celebrities, actors and even some more people who are in your same position. It could be a bad thing when it comes to bullying and the harsh comments some people say on the internet. You can upload a video of you telling a joke and some may enjoy it and show love and support but then most people tend 'to hate and leave negative comments as well. At this point I feel like you should use social media at your very own risk. It can be good or bad, you just never know.
