This is good. Generally people don't discuss in such points.

As per my personal view,the concept of social media refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, exchange and comment contents among themselves in virtual communities and networks.In a simple manner,social media may be defined as a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundation.It serves many advantages but on the other hand it serves few disadvantages also which includes:
-Increase the risk of people falling prey to online ****s that seem genuine, resulting in data or identity theft.
-Potentially results in lost productivity, especially if employees are busy updating profiles.

A social media acts as a social networking platforms that may allow organization to improve communication and productivity information among different groups of employees in more efficient manner, resulting in an increase in productivity.
But on the other hand, it has some of its disadvantages also like:
-It may result in negative comments from employees about the company or potential legal consequences - It potentially results in the lost productivity, especially if employees are busy in updating profiles etc.
-Corporate Invasion of Privacy

Thanks for sharing. Interesting points. But as a marketer, we can't ignore the importance of social media. It's a great way for a business to acquire awareness.

You have to be careful about what you share in facebook. It can be very detrimental to your privacy. There are downsides to every upsides, I believe.

I completely agree. As demonstrated through the recent "hacking" of hundreds of celebrity iCloud accounts, which are alleged to have taken place through people figuring out answers to each celeb's personal security questions, many of us have made it easy for people to find out our dates-of-birth, place of birth, mother's maiden names and more.

Most people wouldn't take advantage of that information, but a small minority see it as a gold mine and an opportunity to engage in information theft, identity theft or similar.

We do need to be vigilant in revealing enough to keep our friends, family and acquaintances in the loop, but not enough to enable the wrong sorts to take advantage of the situation.
