Therefore, we can say that social media can be a boon as well as bane for the young generation. It is in the hands of the youth to take care of themselves while dealing with the social media. This can have both positive and negative effects on the lives of people. Any negative impacton youth will have direct impacton the society as well as the country.
In conclusion to this, youth should use the social media in the positive manner. It will help them to inculcate good abilities which would result in their positive growth as well as the society.
