How can the Concept of Synthesis Create a More Useful Discussion about Social Media's Effect on People's Social Life (Social vs. Antisocial)
People would argue that social media is where social interactions occur over the internet between individuals, groups, and corporates. However, social media is a virtual electronic platform on the internet that allows interaction between people, groups, and organizations for socio-economic reasons. In contrast, others rely on it for communication and advertisement. The level of interaction in the social media platform should remain social, but the system provides more than just social interaction because these platforms are also used for commercial purposes for advertisements and communication (Boulianne, 2019). However, the purpose of this paper is to construct a synthesis argument around the fact that social media influences people's lives by promoting social and antisocial behavior amongst users. The argumentative process forges a middle ground that portrays social media as the creator of positive social and antisocial behaviors that determine interactions at individual and group levels, which help in predicting future types of interactions.
