What are the advantages of using the Internet to engage people in social causes? What are the disadvantages? Advantages: The advantages of social media is that one person’s post of something good can then become one million people’s post and can then go further and eventually go viral. By liking or sharing a post you are supporting someone and their culture by agreeing yes we should do something about it or yes it is an issue like how can we make a difference?   Little things like that promote world peace in a way that one person can make a difference and they can change the world or at least, how someone thinks. Disadvantages: People can react to a post of someone's and share it and then they can  have their own opinion on it and how they disagree someone else might stumble upon it and share it aswell and she might agree that this subject is wrong it shouldn’t be happening and so on.
