Issues like cyberbullying are always making headlines but there are many positive effects of social media too. And it’s a good thing because social networking is here to stay! The Pew Research Center recently reported that, “Today, 90% of young adults use social media, compared with 12% in 2005, a 78-percentage point increase. At the same time, there has been a 69-point bump among those ages 30-49, from 8% in 2005 to 77% today.” All of those new users aren’t just responding to peer pressure — most would agree that the pros of social media outweigh the cons.
