    selfishness of social media

    please do proofreading of this paragraph

    If we analyze the social media from social interaction perspective; it has actually conditioned us to become less social. It has divided our social space into real and artificial spaces. Humans inherent need to have conversation, that socializes us, are now satiated by this artificial space. We barely moves out from this space to interact with reality; reality that large scale deprivation still exists in our society and requires our attention. As rarely we able to cultivate the feelings of compassion and solidarity towards it our actions largely remain selfish.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections to your opening line. Remember to start all sentences with a capital letter and end them one appropriate punctuation mark.

    What are you going to do with your paragraph when it's ready?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: selfishness of social media

    When it's ready, I will try to write another one.
    Actually I am trying to learn paragraph writing that will help me improving my essay writing skills. So paragraph is not important perse but errors do. It would be a great help if you further identify mistakes. Thanks for your efforts.

    Actually, I am trying to learn paragraph writing that will help me simply trying to improving improve my essay writing skills. So the paragraph itself is not important, perse per se, but errors do are. It would be a great help if you further would identify my/any mistakes. Thanks for your efforts.
    OK, that's fine. We needed to check that this isn't your homework. I will look at your paragraph shortly.

    Note my corrections above.

    Please see my corrections and suggested changes above. I have put each sentence onto its own line simply because it makes it easier to read. It should be written as one paragraph, as you originally did.

    Re: selfishness of social media

    Sir/ma'am could you help me in this?
    How can I form gender neutral sentences without using the phrases like he/she, his/her or sir/ma'am etc.

    How can I form gender-neutral sentences without using the phrases like "he/she", "his/her" or "Sir/Ma'am" etc?
    You can replace "he/she" with "they" and "his/her" with "their". You can't really replace "Sir/Ma'am" with anything if you really don't know the gender of the person you're addressing in a formal letter.

    For example, instead of "I think a student has left his/her book behind in the classroom", you can say "I think a student has left their book behind in the classroom". Someone could respond to that with "Hopefully they'll realise and come back for it later".
