Social Media is a growing and necessary part of the arts world. Much of advertising for arts events is done through social media. It is accessible, user friendly, and reaches a wide and diverse range of people which is why it has become an integral part of the arts. Social media, in all of its wonder, does bring some drawbacks to the table. The increased use of technology and social media during performances has become disruptive, leading to a less immersive experience. With free access to knowledge provided by the internet an expectation has developed that art, especially advertised or provided through the internet, should be free. With its benefits and drawbacks, social media is still a valuable tool and will most likely become even more beneficial to the arts as time passes.
