Provide examples of different social media and their primary purposes. There are many different forms of social media that exist today. Some of the most popular forms include Facebook, Myspace, Black Planet and Twitter. The primary purposes of the different social media are to create a friendly environment to connect with friends, family and even meet new interesting people. Some are also used to advertise, explore different interest of people and start long or short term relationships. You can find all of these types of media through the internet. These all serve a purpose for each one of us, some different from others but all serve a main point in our lives. 2. What are the greatest benefits of social media for individuals and society? It is a mass communication medium. Social Media is a powerful method to attract more customers by connecting to an audience, you will be able to communicate at different levels and build a solid brand advocacy and referrals. Moreover, when we talk about individuals, then also social media plays a very important role, with getting long lost friends closer together so they will be able to reconnect to one another, and also leading to an increased inflow and outflow of data.

We're living in a social media bubble to where we can be fooled by the people we talk to on a daily basis. There is also a lack of privacy through these types of media.
