The aim of this paper is to weigh both the strengths and weaknesses of social media consumption as it stands today, with a particular emphasis on why the need for a different social media approach is crucial and of immediate consequence. After first noting the literature on the benefits & rewards of social media, it examines the literature regarding specific social media giants: Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat, to indicate the basis of the detriment they cause separately and as a cohort. This sets the ground for showing where a gap needs to be addressed going forward.
