There are obvious reasons to be aware and cautious about the extent and frequency of one's own social media use, but is there a positive side to this story? Of course! It's all in how social media is used and how we can make it work for good. 

Need more convincing? Look no further! 

But, be aware. The problem of social media addiction is very real, and if you think you have a problem, it is important to recognize it and ask for help.
