We should be more careful in giving personal information that can be used by others in bad things.

Ther's a lot of posers. I hate it when someone is adding you as a friend and yet they are just there to copy some information from you then set up an account under your name. That's annoying and really not good.

It's easy enough for people to gossip with social media. People bragging about what they have accomplished and it can cause people to be depressed about their own lives.

There are so many ads on social media which could be viruses. Your gadgets would get hacked or blocked.

That happened to me too. Someone was using my name and photos. I have just reported it on Facebook to close that account.

I think one of the many dangers is the pressure it puts on individuals especially young adults to portray a life that they don't really have and that they become so obsessed with the feeling that they have to keep up this image instead of actually living in the moment since they need the perfect shot

Your photos, videos and personal information are not 100% secure.

People are so concerned with how people see them. That's just not healthy.

Its a pretty doubled sided sword cause while on one hand it can lead to meeting interesting new people it also emboldens people to make harsher statements when they are behind a screen and have the comfort of anonymity and don't see the facial reaction of what their words are doing

Many want to be the next internet sensation. Unfortunately, you have to do something extreme. Too often that results in them doing things that are physically dangerous or humiliating.
