Social media has come with a lot of convenient features. At the same time, there are some potential disadvantages that can come as a result of Facebook and other forms of social media. This has resulted in some people saying that Facebook is bringing a negative impact on society. There have been even former execs that have stated that Facebook is having a negative impact on society as a whole. This has caused Facebook to talk back and address these claims.
It is understandable how people would come to this conclusion. Some people have stated that it is the short-term nature that awards the dopamine and other gratification related hormones in people. Also, people are more focused on connecting from their devices as opposed to actually meeting with one another in person. While many people may find it very convenient to connect with one another from social media, there are some people who are feeling the impact that is coming from such dependence on these platforms.

The executives at Facebook are paying more attention to the responsibility they have on society and are looking for ways that it can help Facebook bring forth positive changes in society. As of right now, there are tons of users on Facebook connecting with one another and even marketing their companies.
