Ever since its advent, social media has had quite an impact in our lives. It changed the way we do things, including the way we communicate, the way we share and of course, the way we live. Best of all, we may not even realize how these social networks managed to grant us so many things that helped bring such an impact. This article will mention just some of the things that have hit us so much that our lives became easier thanks to them.
No longer forgetting important events
Some social networks like Facebook have this neat feature that reminds us of important events involving our friends. Things like your friends’ birthday, or an upcoming event that you have been looking forward to. This feature helps users so much that we won’t worry about forgetting about such events, allowing us to wish them a happy birthday or to prepare for the event. Either way, we won’t have to forget anything thanks to social media.
No longer able to lose your contacts
Social media also helped change our lives by always remembering our contacts. Back then, we could lose the contact information of our friends and loved ones through accidents, or sometimes we forget to back them up in case something happens to our cell phone. Thanks to social media, we can always just get the contacts back because they are stored online. This is great for Smartphone users as they can instantly retrieve all their contacts back simply by signing on to Facebook. Whatever happens to our contact list, social media will have us covered.
No need to maintain photo albums
Social media eliminated a lot of worries, and this includes having to maintain photo albums. Social media sites like Facebook and Instagram allow us to store all our photos online. Space for photos is even unlimited, allowing us to store all the photos we want and get them back at any time.
Getting forgotten friends back
Social media sites even made it possible for us to meet our old friends from a long time ago. As finding your old friends is next to impossible in real life, social media made it a snap. We could find just about anyone; high school classmates, old workmates, childhood friends, and more. Of course, social networks have grant users privacy settings to protect them, but by joining different networks, it was possible to find otherwise restricted people and expand your circle all with just one button.
Lastly, social media sites allow users to invite people to any kind of event. Inviting was easy; all they had to do was create an event page and invite people in. Meanwhile, a person could accept or decline invites with a simple click of a button. It didn’t take long at all.
All in all, social media made such a huge impact in our lives by making otherwise impossible things easy to do. It sounds like something we take for granted at first, but then you think about it and realize just how much social media networks made it easy for all of us.
