On Wednesday, I'm doing a speech in front of my class as part of my GCSE English Language course. The topic I have chosen to speak about is why social media DOES NOT make us anti-social.
I am aiming for a distinction, so I will need to be ready for challenging questions from my teacher and peers.
In order to prepare myself as best as I can, I'm looking for ideas to back up my speech.
My question is this: do you think social media makes us more anti-social? Why/why not?

Social media ENCOURAGES being more social. You don't need to be face to face to be social. As long as you're actively communicating with people, you're having social interaction. Even more, the simplicity of it and the fact that you can contact people who you otherwise wouldn't be able to speak to encourages you to interact with more people. Also, with the inclusion of the ability to 'facetime' others means you're having a very similar experience to meeting up in person, with the added bonus of being able to speak to people who you might not be able to meet up with.
(these are just a few ideas I tossed around off the top of my head. If you want any general advice, let me know)
