Please write how social media effects our lives in negative ways, in
friendship, family, safety and security and even our thoughts.
For example we expect friendship on Facebook from people who we don’t
know, in YouTube there always suggestions for videos that can lead us
to think in one direction. Also on Instagram and snapchat some people
are addicted to likes so they would post anything even if it
inappropriate. And so on. Please explain so well who media and social
media can mislead young people to do or believe in something that is
Please write as you wanna convince someone to believe it.
The argumentative essay has very little to do with confrontation. Rather, it focuses on persuasion. For this assignment, you must convince your fellow classmates that someone or something is worthy of praise. Depending on your candidate, some members of your audience may need more convincing than others.
Choose someone or something that can be researched. Your topic may be well-known or obscure -both choices require specific considerations and approaches. For instance, someone famous may possess some traits that may repulse some while attracting others. You might have to overcome preconceived notions regarding your candidate. You must decide whether you will ask your audience to look at your candidate from a new perspective, or to disregard certain negative traits that are outweighed by more positive ones. If your subject is unknown, you must describe that person or thing to an audience that has no idea why this subject is significant, especially to them. A character sketch might be helpful, but listing good qualities is not enough. You must convince the audience that they should respect your
admiration, if not share it.
Your goal in this assignment will be to establish a persuasive reason for the praise or respect you are calling for. Why should anyone care that you admire this person or care for this thing? You are responsible for demonstrating that praise is justified, but this is also a chance to flex your writing muscles. Imagine this as a speech -will it be more effective if it is demanding or eloquent?
