I spend a lot of time on social media, maybe a couple of hours during the day and at night as I have my own FB page, photography page and keep in contact with friends in Australia and Overseas.
FaceBook - Good. Groups are great to be involved in. Sell things on the Marketplace. Read newspaper articles for free whereas their websites online you have to pay a subscription.
Cons - Hacking. Posts get deleted because FB is deciding what is staying and not even on Sales posts on Marketplace.
Twitter - Great. Better than FaceBook. Better security. Better discussions and more professional.
No Cons.
Instagram - Great. Use mainly for photography. Joined groups which is good.
Cons - Hacking.

I spend too much time on Social Media but these days it's almost essential to spend time on it.

My top 3 apps are:

Snapchat - Best instant photo/video app. You can send your friends and family a video or picture in real time whenever and wherever and it just works.
Facebook - I only use this for Facebook Messenger. Best place in my opinion to quickly message friends and family, start calls and have niche group chats for different events etc. Also, Facebook seems to be the best place to create events and invite friends/family to the event and keep track of who is coming.
Discord - Best overall app for hosting large scale events, keeping in contact with numerous people at once etc. It has everything you could require. Better for talking to people you do know but also for people you may know as well.

Overall, without social media in 2022 most human beings would be lost and not know what to do. We are so attached with having the option to message people in real time, post what we are doing in real time and communicate with people all over the world in world time. Therefore, we would be lost without Social Media.
