The Expansion of Information Sharing Due to Social Media

​Our world has expanded and grown significantly in the past decade or so. With advancements in technology during this digital age, the Internet has expanded its reach and flattened the world almost like a chef flattens out dough.

Our world has expanded and grown significantly in the past decade or so. With advancements in technology during this digital age, the Internet has expanded its reach and flattened the world almost like a chef flattens out dough.

Because of this flattening effect, communication has been made quick and seamless. A person can reach someone across the globe in a matter of seconds due to advancements in technology, most notably the Internet. And thanks to social media, Mark Twain’s statement “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes” has become even truer.

People interact so quickly and are constantly in the know due to the internet. Social media outlets allow users to follow news outlets, celebrities, organizations, sports teams, and businesses. With one look at their smartphone or computer a user can see what is happening across the world and across several sectors. Of course social media also creates an outlet for people to share their opinions, good or bad, about whatever is happening at that moment in time.

People love to share their thoughts and ideologies; mostly because they believe they have the greatest ideas. More often than not, the people that share the most have the least amount of intelligent ideas to offer the world. That may be a bit harsh, but that is just what seems to be the case. This is one of the negative aspects of social media, but with the good comes the bad. Although there are a few negative points to social media networks, there are several more positive attributes to social media.

One of the amazing things that social media is that people are able to connect with friends, relatives and people with similar interests all over the world. You are able to stay in touch with family members that have moved to other parts of the globe just as if they moved a town over.

The Internet and social media have made information gathering a much simpler process than it had been in previous decades. Social media is the latest step in a long line of advancements in information sharing mediums.
