Social Media as defined by the English dictionary as Interactive forms of media that allow users to interact with and publish to each other, generally by means of the Internet.

Nowadays, social media as become means of communication by many people around the world. As important and useful social media is, it has it's side effects.

Some times ago, as I was chatting on Facebook I received a message from a old friend from high school telling me to call him on his new number, immediately I called him and we exchange pleasantries, he gave me his address and told me to visit him by weekend.

At weekend, I went to the address he gave and met him at home and we discussed at length, after our discussion he said it was the advert I pasted on my timeline made him to chat me up, because he needed someone that can help him to sew his clothes in a professional way.

Since I was a professional in sewing clothes, he gave me the work that lasted for a whole week and I was very happy. Though, I'm not a social media person but that work is as a result of chatting on social media.

On the other hand, as I said earlier that social media also has it's side effects, I also have an experience which is a bad one while chatting on social media. This happened last month, as I was replying some messages on WhatsApp, I was so engrossed with the chatting forgetting that I was cooking my dinner in the kitchen and the food was on the cooking gas, while I'm in the room pressing my phone suddenly, I heard someone knocking the door so I tried to attend to the person, when I opened the door it was my neighbor and he said he's perceiving some odour from my kitchen, it was then I remembered the food I put on fire. When I got there, everything is burnt including the pot and that day I slept with empty stomach as a result of chatting on social media.

This is my entry for the week 30, edition02. Thanks for reading.

I have left food cooking unattended before but not to the point my meal is inedible. Just burned the bottom inside of my pot.

It does happen sometimes, you become so engross in chatting that you forget about every other thing, one of the signs of addiction. I hope we learn how to control this addiction

You are right, but it's unfortunate that most people especially the youths do abuse it
