Social media has benefited me in many ways.
1) When I ran my own business I used social media to keep in touch with past clients, and they were able to refer new clients to me easily. I did NOT do any advertising, it was strictly word of mouth over social media, but by keeping in touch and showing a personal interest in my clients lives and businesses I was always on their mind when someone asked them for a recommendation.
2) My family is extremely large. We have used social media to maintain a shared contact list of names/addresses/emails/etc. This is particularly useful for sending out christmas cards or setting up family reunions.
3) In times of need friends and family have been able to be quickly informed and offer words of encouragement or tangible help.
