Instructions: Listen to the dialogue between two university students discussing their research project on the impact of social media on society. Answer the questions below.


Female Student: Hi John, how is your part of the project on social media going?

Male Student: Hi Sarah, it’s going well. I’ve found some interesting statistics on how social media affects mental health, particularly among teenagers. How about you?

Female Student: I’ve been focusing on the positive aspects, like how social media can help in building communities and spreading awareness on important issues.

Male Student: That’s a good angle. Have you found any case studies?

Female Student: Yes, I came across a community on Facebook that raises funds for medical treatments. They’ve helped thousands of people.

Male Student: That’s impressive. I think we should also look at the negative aspects to provide a balanced view.

Female Student: Agreed. Cyberbullying is a huge issue. We need to address that as well.

Male Student: Definitely. I’ll also include some information on privacy concerns. Social media companies collect a lot of data.

Female Student: Right. Let’s meet tomorrow to combine our findings.

Section 2: Lecture

Instructions: Listen to a lecture on the broader societal impacts of social media. Answer the following questions.

Recording: Lecturer: Good afternoon, everyone. Today we’re discussing the societal impacts of social media. Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have revolutionized communication. They enable people to stay connected, share ideas, and even organize social movements. However, there are also significant downsides. Social media can contribute to anxiety and depression, especially among young people. Cyberbullying is another serious concern. Moreover, these platforms collect vast amounts of personal data, raising privacy issues. On the positive side, social media has been instrumental in disaster response and spreading important health information. Overall, while social media offers many benefits, it’s crucial to be aware of its potential negative effects.
