Know the merits and demerits

Social media is here to stay and we cannot ignore it. People of all age groups are engrossed in these networking sites. It has its own merits and demerits. The role of the educators is to impress upon young minds the good and ill-effects of social media. Schools can conduct seminars, workshops to create awareness about the media. While it is good that children take a break from their hectic work by using social media, it is advisable to have a fixed screen time at home and outside. Parents should exert reasonable control over their usage.
