The faculty of Mass Communication organized a seminar entitled “Social Media and its Effect on the Society” which was delivered by Dr. Khaled El Zehweny, a Lecturer in the Public Relations and Marketing Communications Department. He talked about social media, its advantages and disadvantages and he highlighted that social media is a civilized achievement created by innovative minds. He also spoke about the different uses of social media which occupied time, interest and minds of young people especially after it succeeded in attracting many ages regardless of geographical, religious and ethnic differences. As a result of using social media, self and mass communication were combined in a single environment that reshaped the social and communication life of individuals in real world.
In related context, first-year students presented a research entitled “The Social Impact of Internet Addiction among Young People” which was provided with documentaries that showed the serious impact of social media on our social life.
