Social media has facilitated communication
The ongoing global pandemic has isolated many from friends and loved ones, creating a rise in individuals experiencing feelings of loneliness and other symptoms of poor mental health. However, it can be argued that social media has facilitated communication during a time of distress. Now more than ever, there is a range of avenues available to people so they can stay connected virtually. Consequently, this enables communities to build a stronger support network during a time of unease and anxiety.
