The argument claims that social media makes our world more democratic by acting as a means of communication between politicians and the public. It also claims that since social media offers a lot of benefits, it can only lead to a harmonious future.

The line of reasoning used is that having a strong platform for communication is the ultimate step towards democracy and harmony. It is also assumed that all sort of communication that takes place on social media is productive and positive.

The given arguments are weak because the negative effects of social media are overlooked and the claims are based on just the benefits offered. The argument fails to take into consideration the spread of misinformation and unverified forwards that take place on social media. The argument is also weak because it is assumed that social media provides a free flow of information over its platform and fails to take into consideration regulations and strict norms imposed by different countries depending upon the type of government. The argument paints social media as a tool for image building but fails to consider how it can also be used for image tampering. Given the abovesaid reasons, the claim that social media can 'only' lead to a harmonious future is overly exaggerated.

In conclusion, the argument is flawed, therefore unconvincing. It paints one side of the picture. The argument should have taken into consideration the cons as well and weighed the two before coming to a probable conclusion.

At just 250 words, you have written a review of an essay and not an AWA essay; Please note the essay has to be an analytical argument with rhetoric such as surveys, study reports, statistics, data and things like that. Otherwise, your essay may not be assessed. Your essay must minimum be near 500 words.
I suggest that you treat a GMAT subject with the respect that it deserves.

Consider comparing the length of your AWA with the length of the perfect 6 AWA in the Official Guide.
