How trend of social media is increasing? 

But social media is incredibly helpful in the modern world, and since 2015, its use has been increasing tremendously. You can interact with people much more easily, develop and maintain connections much more easily, and it can even have a real-time impact on corporate, governmental, and other decision-making processes.

Social media is a strong source of spreading News in society:

 It is true, and there have been several recent examples when social media has been used to spread information and got public opinion. Common people get turned into celebrities just because of their short unintentional video clips, any minor statement or tweet becomes viral all over the world within a few hours. In simple words, social media is an easy approach to getting fame.

Will Smith's Oscar smack to Chris Rock is the first illustration. Before traditional news agencies had a chance to report it, the news quickly spread like wildfire over Facebook and Twitter as soon as it happened. The slap was captured on camera, and within an hour, with more than 100,000 tweets just in the previous hour, it was at the top of Twitter's trending list.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is the second illustration. Ukrainian fighters have been using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter since the first onslaught began to plan and coordinate attacks, highlight where the enemy is moving, and generally use a platform that won't be shut down to immediately respond to Russian aggression.

Aysha Pakistani common girls become internet sensation earlier this month when one of her dance videos got viral on social media. She showed her dance moves on the Late Lata Mangeshkar classic "MERA DIL YE POKARAY AJAA" on Instagram. Her video became viral within seconds, got billions of views, and still increasing its rating.

⦁One more social media influencer from Pakistan is "Dananeer Mobeen". She got famous when she posted her video "PARI HO RHI HAI" on Instagram became viral. "Pari ho hi hai" that's the line that the internet is currently adopted. A lot of memes and versions of "Pari ho hi hai" has been created. Social media users are also interested in knowing every detail about this girl as she occupied the top spot on the trend list apart from her viral line.

These are just a few examples, some of which are more extreme than others, but they show how pervasive social media is in contemporary society, how it's utilized for much more than just business marketing and communication, and how it can be utilized for almost every aspect of life, even above and beyond entertainment.


 In the end, I want to say that the role of social media has its important in society. The way to connect with people and society has been digital now. Just a text message or email covers all the things that we want to say to another person.  A simple society now turns into a digital society. Even family members talk with each other through social media. It just aims to show that social media is going to stay and will only grow in popularity over the coming years.
