It is more difficult for search engines to decide what to display in search engine results pages when you have two or more pages that are exactly the same (SERPs).
When Google is forced to choose between identical pieces of content, all content suffers. As attention is divided among multiple instances of the same item, link strength decreases and social media becomes less effective.
There are several ways to deal with duplicate content, but the most common is to use the canonical tag, which tells search engines which pages to prioritize for indexing.
