Through the last 10 year or so, social media has changed through said 10 years. It also became

one of the most important parts of our everyday lives, it is the way to communicate with people you don’t

see and the people we do see everyday. When it comes to this particular topic it does draw up a lot of

different opinions. Some believe that using social media is not the best place to share world news and

we check our socials even when we aren’t looking for said information we always come across it , with

this there are positives and negatives to this. There is so much information coming out 24/7 it is difficult

to see past the false facts to see the truth.
