SOCIAL MEDIA 2Social mediaWe cannot deny that social media technology has revolutionized over the years since the industrialization era. Through the revolution of social media technology, so many things in human life have changed, and more of these changes are on a positive note. Most people are using social media sites such as Facebook, twitter, Google, LinkedIn and Pinterest to communicate and share information. In this era of social media technology, one party can communicate with another instantaneously and can access most of the world's info (Albrecht, 2014). Despite the advantages that social media usage has brought into our lives, we have to look at the disadvantages that it has brought such as isolation, lack of concentration and poor relationships between people.This paper will seek to discuss how social media technology has turned to ruin the personal lifestyle of people, as much as they claim that it is good. The paper will also point at Turkle's critique on the use of social media to see how it affects the relationship between people. Finally, the paper will outline some recommendations into what should be done to stabilize the use of social media in order not to render one an addict.Following Turkle's assessment, I concur with her critiques about social networking and the effect it has on our lives. She argues that taking our lives in the direction of social networking; there will always be upheavals in our lives. One of the upheavals of social media according to Turkle's assessment is that it has brought some connectedness to the social platform.Connectedness to social media and internet has affected the rate at which people are attentive to lectures and their acquaintances. Turkle herself brings out the situation of lack of attention whenshe attended a conference where the room was parked with free Wi-Fi and laptops. To her utter shock, she was alone in the sense that most of the people were busy emailing and surfing the Net.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
