There are a lot of things that you can say about social media but, love it or hate it, there are definitely some advantages to social media. Now, supermodel and activist Liya Kebede, who was born in Ethiopia, has spoken about the advantages of social media, admitting that she sees it as a great way to get the word out.
Kebede recently explained, "Every minute one woman dies of pregnancy or childbirth complications and 90 percent of those deaths are preventable with basic healthcare and medical access, so for us the biggest issue is how do you get that message out there."
She then went on to say, "And really, social media is solving most of our problems. You don’t have to wait long [to get the message out], it’s inexpensive, and the accessibility is incredible."
With that said, there are certainly plenty of people who could also give us plenty of reasons why social media is a bad thing. With the amount of online bullying and social media trolling that happens these days, there are just as many disadvantage to social media, as there are advantages.
