The convener, Aderinsola Ademefun noted that social media is impactful but it’s influence has been more negative than positive, especially in the lives of teenagers.

She said that the seminar focused more on young people because they are the highest and more frequent users of social media, and therefore advised them to use it for educational and more productive purposes.

She added in her speech; “We can’t just say it’s a curse because social media has had a lot of positive impact on a lot of people. It just depends on how effective and efficient the technology is used.

“I decided to enlighten and restructure the minds of teenagers because they’re the ones prone to getting on the negative side of social media. It just saddens me that a lot of teenagers and youths go online and chat without doing anything productive.”

The station officer of NYSC Radio and Television, Mr Ezechukwu Olugele, said; “This event is very important in that it helps the teens and the youth to have a perspective of life and what life can offer them with social media, and what the bad effects of social media could mean for the overall growth and development.

The seminar was part of her personal Community Development Service (CDS) towards contributing positively to the society.
