|How powerful social media can be|
By Michael Seshabela UJ student
Social media plays a major role in todays’ student lifestyle. Many students use social media for different purposes namely socialising, learning, reading, current affairs, etc. Students do not take into consideration what they post on social media. I truly believe that social media can either break you or make you. Students should always be aware of how they communicate or use social media because the world out there is watching you, especially your future bosses.
Yes, social media is a platform for having fun and most of the time not for being serious, but remember that we as students normally post what is at our finger tips and not what is on our mind. Posting pictures of drinking alcohol does not build a good reputation for oneself. The same goes for posting hundreds of naked pictures of yourself just because you are after “LIKES” to become a FELEB. Do not think that this is working to make you a respected person in your community.
