How Social Media Has Treated Me

Welcome to my blog

Social Media had taken over the globe. Everyone in one way or the other is registered on social media platform or the other.
Even hive works to be like a social media where we interact with individuals far and close. The only difference is that we have been paid for blogging and it is build on web 3 and hence cannot Chat privately with people.

Chatting has done many positive things for me.

Able to connect with people and create new friends

One wonderful thing conversing on social media has done was helped me connect with friends and meet new ones. It helps you eliminate boredom and keep you in contact with friends and family members who are far away. Technology also developed a manner where you may have a video call with someone extremely distant even in a another country. You do not need to personally see them.
Also, chatting has allowed me to connect with new people who have truly helped me. I have connected with business partners on Twitter who have assisted me with money-related concerns.

The beautiful thing about social media and chatting is that you do not necessarily have to have data or credit. You may even talk on several social media sites for free thus making it very simple to interact with buddies.

Severally Scammed
In as much as we have many wonderful things social media has done to me, there are also harmful ways it has been to me.
Sometimes I simply feel like shutting down and staying off it for a bit.
One negative thing is that I have been duped repeatedly on social media accounts.
The last scam encounter I had was when I saw an advertisement for a class and I decided to join the program.

They behaved so genuinely with multiple withdrawal alerts. It was not a kind of investment but a skill to learn and they showed how many individuals have been rewarded for giving that service.
I opted to learn the skill too I paid I was banned on my social media handle and my money gone.
The painful part was that i hard to borrow the money.

Maybe I wouldn't have joined the WhatsApp group or noticed the ads if I wasn't on social media.
Most fraud comes via social media and if you are not vigilant, you could fall Victim. Decided not to pay money to anybody I don't know personally or click any suspicious link that may let them simply trace the data of my phone.

Thank you for reading

Social media also has its bad sides, it's up to us to always find ways to protect ourselves from the negative aspects of social media. I have also falled into one or two scams in the past, and that made me not to trust any of those investment or skill acquisition programs on social media

That's true, Nkem.
My phone company keeps on offering free facebook and whatsapp minutes. I am not addicted to any of these sites so they are of no use for me. Lol. That's another thing, but the company keeps on offering

Social media platforms have lots of benefits; an avenue for advertising your business, improving communication and social skills, etc. Even with these benefits, there are still some disadvantages. Just like you mentioned, a lot of people get scammed daily through chatting. Although I've never being scammed, but I've read and heard stories of people who got scammed online.

Thanks for sharing.

Social media is an integral part of our lives these days. Where it has good effects. It has bad too. We need to have a lot of self control and also need to be very cautious for avoiding the bad effects.

I am sorry to hear about your money loss. These kinds of scams are a way too common.

Hmmm!! Scammers have now turned social media to their offices. Though I have never fallen to their traps but people close to me were victimized severally. Thanks to God that their tricks are gradually coming to light and people are being more careful than ever.

Truly social media connects people together and takes away boredom. It is easier now for us to see the faces of our families and friends who are far away through video calls. Kudus to technology. Thanks for sharing this with us ♥️
