Social media is really a necessity nowadays. Although it has negative impacts on others, it also offers many positive influences. Organizations that provide humanitarian support, communities that support mental health advocacy, influencers that help others remotely through their life teachings, etc.
These are some of the positive reasons why social media is a huge help in dealing with today’s major societal issues.
Unquestionably, major social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and Tiktok has helped many people who struggle with substance abuse.
