Both.

Good- People these days have long-distance relationships, and/or long-distance friendships. It really helps people to learn more about other countries, states, etc. And other cultures :)

Bad- People who only make friends in other countries usually get really depressed when they realize that they're really social online, and yet they're not so social in reality. And some people just can't meet each other at all because they don't have the money or they don't want to leave their countries. Not to mention the language barrier. It's hard talking face to face with someone when they speak a totally different language and you don't have Google Translate to help you out xD

It's great for meeting new people in person and keeping in touch for free.

However it's bad because let's face it your time would most likely be better spent in person that sat on your ass talking online for ages. I am generalising here because it's still good to chat online when you can't actually meet in person.

I could go on and on I mean hell I even have created multiple social networks..

So if Social Media takes a turn for the worse, we will all ban together and hunt down you web developers/designers :p

Social media is great! As mentioned above, it allows you to keep in touch with friends ( for free) and make new ones! Also, social media is a great a to advertise your goods; be it products, blogs or poems etc. They're also a good way to learn stuff. E.g On twitter I follow people who post foreign language related stuff, so that I can learn a few words here and there. Also, while on twitter I can still current with what's going on soemo. Facebook and twitter are both goof ways to know what's going on in the world as well.

Downside: They're addictive, time consuming , can alienate people SOCIALLY ( in the real world; as mentioned above it can stop people from actually socializing in real life! It can also make one's private information vulnerable to stalkers,maybe even identity theft. One can also rely on them too much and as Onyx said " IF Social media makes a turn for the worse we will all ban together and hunt down you web developers/designers :p".

Like everything it has its ups and downs....

lol remember I was talkign abotu being a means through which stalkers could do their thing. It can also worka gainst them. One of my friends posted on twitter
"Facebook is really exposing the stalkers & creeps. "

^ Social media is also a good way to get your words carried around the web

I think it is mostly bad

By first, Sociaal media isn't free you have to pay with information of yourself that will be stored for as long as internet will exist.

By seconde the people today are losing real live sociaal skills,
I was in class once and the people next to me where twitterin to each other but they weren't even a inch apart.

But it isn't all bad as long as you do not use it to much.

Another negative is it certainly making some people more paranoid and jealous and have far too much pointless drama..

Even though it's cool when messages make you smile :)
