IELTS Speaking part 1: Topic SOCIAL MEDIA

Topic SOCIAL MEDIA

1. At what age are children generally allowed to use social media in your country?

In my country, there is no strict age limit for children to use social media, but many social media platforms require users to be at least 13 years old to sign up. However, I think parents should closely monitor their children’s use of social media to protect them from online risks such as cyberbullying and online harassment. It’s also important to teach children about responsible social media use and encourage them to use social media for networking and entertainment purposes rather than wasting too much time scrolling through their inboxes or constantly updating their statuses.

2. Do you think people will use social media more or less in the future?

In my opinion, people will continue to use social media in the future, and it may even increase. With advancements in technology, it’s becoming easier and more accessible for people to use social media platforms. However, it’s important to recognize the negative impact that excessive social media use can have on mental health, such as addictionsocial isolation, and the spread of misinformation. Therefore, it’s crucial to use social media in moderation and educate ourselves on how to use it responsibly.

3. Why do you think bullying on the internet has become so widespread?

Bullying on the internet has become so widespread due to the anonymity and lack of consequences that the internet provides. People can hide behind fake identities or screen names and say things they wouldn’t normally say in person. Also, the internet has made it easier for bullies to target their victims by being able to contact them 24/7 through various platforms. Furthermore, the internet has made it easier to spread rumors and harmful information quickly and widely. To address this issue, it is important to educate people about online behavior and the consequences of cyberbullying. Additionally, social media platforms can implement stronger policies and procedures to prevent and respond to instances of online harassment.

4. Should social media platforms be regulated by the government? Why or why not?

In my opinion, social media platforms should be regulated by the government to some extent. While it is important to preserve freedom of speech, it is also crucial to prevent harmful content, such as hate speech and fake news, from spreading. The government can work with social media companies to create guidelines and regulations that ensure the protection of users’ privacy and safety, while also promoting responsible and ethical use of these platforms.
