Female African-American Hip Hop artist, Keldamuzik shared her insight on social media and how it affects lives.
From last few decades, the influence of social media has sky-rocketed from being an entertainment to a fully integrated part of everyone’s life. Social media benefits us by expanding our social networks and keeping in touch with far-away friends and family. It is also a creativity outlet. Growing up with digital technology may be changing our brain development in ways we don't yet know.

It's crazy because now I've been addicted to my phone more than ever always checking my Twitter my Instagram both of my Facebook accounts linked in emails. What in the hell would we do if we didn't have all these sources? We would be bored and tired LOL. No I'm just kidding. Science shows it all good and bad. Social media is a great thing to exist but then when people abuse it it becomes bad and harmful to others. I've seen countless crimes happen on Instagram people committing suicide or killing others etc. but then again thanks to social media thinks the camera phones were able to capture the brutal and ruthless murder of George Floyd.

We are also able to capture a lot of Karen's Beckys and other racist individuals who treat people of color wrongfully. If it wasn't for social media and camera phones we would not be able to capture any of this footage at all. this is where I would say social media comes in handy for situations like this. And then on another note social media comes in handy for businesses of course so that we can promote our music our products our businesses and brands. And now that social media has given people the option to run ads and other tools to further promote our creative it surely is more beneficial than ever.

Now we have experts out there who specialize in social media marketing to help grow your business. I think it's an awesome thing and we certainly should take advantage of the social media because of that. All in all let's try to use social media to promote greatness prosperity and spread love. Too much hate is on social media and people spreading too many rumors about each other's businesses and stuff it's not cool. Also it seems like social media is damn near an open diary on the Internet for those. I would definitely keep certain things to myself and not post all over social media about how are you are going through a tragic situation or whatever. Unless you really do want responses and feedback. Other than Again let's make social media our best friend and spread positivity on it rather than hate.
