What is the Impact of Social Media on Social and Psychological Behavior?
With the advancements in the technological sector, it is not only the production of goods and services that is affected, the human behavior is also feeling its impact. The booming social media networks and platforms is changing how we as human beings function or relate to each other. It is also affecting our health statuses specifically psychological status. Therefore, this annotation is in reference to my research question: “What is the impact of social media on social and psychological behaviour?” Social media are technologies supported by computers to enhance establishment and sharing of information, ideas as well as job related issues through computer-related environment and systems of the network. These technologies enable people to communicate or share information with each other anytime and from anywhere, they do not need to have a physical meeting for information sharing. This sharing of ideas and information through social media has both positive and negative challenges.
