Describe a time you saw something interesting on social media.

Well, life never makes you escape a chance to be intrigued, awestruck, or fascinated by someone/something you meet or see or get to know. In today’s world, social media has made the planet a smaller place and one can see various nuances of some of the best talents across the globe. One such thing that enamoured me to the core was the painting finesse that a five year old had and while I was surfing the internet out of boredom. This suggested video aided me in seeing what that child prodigy got.
So, I was actually chatting to a friend of mine and meanwhile maundering across Facebook to glance at the stories and recommendations when I saw a video with so many reactions of love and amazement. As I have an eye for such talents, I clicked the video and honestly, it was one of the most captivating videos I ever came across. The child drew an exquisite painting of nature and it felt as if all he drew was a photograph, which it obviously wasn’t.
Although I have seen a lot of paintings, there was something positively esoteric about that one. Moreover, the fact that it was drawn by a kid of such age was extremely staggering.
Meaning: to be surprisingly interested in something
Eg.: We all were intrigued by the arcane ways of nature.
Eg.: Madam Trousseau was fascinated by those pearls that she saw in that shop.
Eg.: They all were enamoured by her performance yesterday.
Eg.: What an exquisite scenery it is!
Eg.: There was an esoteric tree that caught everyone’s attention.
Part 3 Questions
People like to use social media for a multitude of reasons. Some might use them to pass their time, while some might use them to connect with their long distanced kin and pals. Also, others might utilize social media to either showcase one’s talent or see what others have got.
Social media vacillates quite often and is quite wobbly in relation to what is famous as the world is dynamic and so are the social media algorithms. But to name a few, news updates, art videos, music and dance uploads and interesting or funny facts.
Well, there are hordes of advantages and disadvantages of social media. Its advantage would be bridging the gap between people of different regions, countries, etc. Also, one can get lots of prominence and commendation owing to one’s talent. Its disadvantages, however, would be the emergence of cyber crimes, disproportionate use leading to addiction, etc.
Well, one must be very cautious and, if the need be, finicky while making online friends as the vulnerability of getting duped into a scam or being an ’easy burger’ to be fed is not unheard of.
As far as my views are concerned, I don’t think children should be allowed to access social media without being properly monitored or watched over. Like I said, the delinquency rates on social media are on the surge these days and children are the most susceptible targets.
Meaning: large in number
Eg.: A multitude of events were arranged in the city last year.
Eg.: My pals are the best ones.
Meaning: to be uncertain or unsteady
Eg.: He wasn’t firm in his decision and kept on vacillating.
E.g.: I got lots of commendations for all that I did.
Meaning: Chances of something happening
Eg.: The vulnerability of these kids to go astray from their paths is quite high.
