This paper examines the influence of social media in our global political, social, and business landscape. It underscores the argument that the value of social media in our 21st century social and business lifestyles cannot be overlooked. It explores some of the ways in which social media has shaped and positively maintained friendship, dating, and family relationships. It also highlights some of the growing challenges and emerging moral risks associated with unregulated social media prevalence in the society and offers ways to minimize threats posed by unfettered social media use in the society.
