One beneficial part of social media is that you can ask for prayer and almost instantly the body of Christ across the globe can pray for you.
Another good thing about social media is that you can find someone on here who might be an expert or knowledgeable about something you want to know—and you can ask them a question!
A third cool thing about social media is that you can find someone whom you deem trustworthy to deliver news, science, or whatever and follow them or put them on a list. Then instead of letting information just flow to you, you can follow/track trustworthy sources. You control it.
