Part 2: Long Turn (3-4 minutes)


Describe how social media has impacted your life. You should say:

  • When you started using social media
  • How it has influenced your daily routine
  • What positive and negative effects it has had on your life
  • And explain how different your life would be without social media.

Suggested Response:

I started using social media when I was in high school, around ten years ago. Initially, I joined to keep in touch with my classmates and to share photos and updates about my life. Over the years, social media has become a significant part of my daily routine. I usually spend about an hour each day browsing through my feeds, liking posts, and commenting on friends’ updates.

Social media has had both positive and negative effects on my life. On the positive side, it has made it easier for me to maintain relationships with people who live far away. I have also found it to be a great source of information and entertainment. However, on the downside, I sometimes find myself spending too much time on social media, which can be a distraction from my work and studies. Additionally, social media can sometimes create a sense of inadequacy, as people often share only the highlights of their lives.

If I didn’t have social media, I believe my life would be quite different. I would likely spend more time engaging in face-to-face interactions and perhaps develop deeper, more meaningful relationships. I would also have more free time to pursue other interests and hobbies.

Part 3: Discussion (4-5 minutes)


  1. How has social media influenced the way businesses operate today?
  2. Do you think social media has more positive or negative effects on society? Why?
  3. How can people protect themselves from the negative impacts of social media?
  4. What do you think the future of social media will look like?

Suggested Responses:

  1. Social media has significantly changed the way businesses operate by providing them with new ways to reach and engage with customers. Many businesses now use social media for marketing, customer service, and to gather feedback. It has also made it easier for small businesses to reach a global audience.
  2. I believe social media has both positive and negative effects on society. On the positive side, it has made information more accessible, connected people across the globe, and provided a platform for social movements. However, it also has negative effects, such as spreading misinformation, creating echo chambers, and contributing to mental health issues.
  3. People can protect themselves from the negative impacts of social media by setting time limits on their usage, being mindful of the content they consume, and taking regular breaks from social media. It’s also important to critically evaluate the information they come across and to engage in positive, supportive online communities.
  4. The future of social media will likely involve more advanced technology, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, making the experiences more immersive. We might also see stricter regulations to address issues like privacy and misinformation. Additionally, there could be a greater emphasis on creating healthier online environments to mitigate the negative impacts on mental health.
