Below are some thoughts, based primarily on the pro-privacy reactions to Zuckerberg's statements from many of our readers this weekend. Though there is a lot to be said for analysis of public data (more on that later), I believe that Facebook is making a big mistake by moving away from its origins based on privacy for user data. In Facebook's early days, and for the vast majority of the site's life, its primary differentiator was that your user data was only visible to other users that you approved friend requests from. As of mid-December, Facebook users were no longer allowed to hide from the web-at-large some information including their profile photos, list of friends and interests in the form of fan pages they followed. Text, photo and video updates shared on the site have always been by default private (friends only) but if you'd never changed your privacy settings before last month, then Facebook suggested you switch them to make those updates publicly visible to everyone.
Digital Culture/Social Media Digital culture had been raised for the last twenty years and approximately ten years ago, it had become popular. However, it was not a huge impact on young adults’ life as today because it was expansive for most of the families. Everything had changed because of the fast upgrade of technology, thus most of young adults starting to have one of them. Therefore, some of the articles had said these technologies had turned young adults dumb because of the over-use and excessive depend. Also digital culture and social media had made they forgot about the reality and live in a virtual life.
Sarah Kliff, author of “Facebook: Why I Hate it…” writes, “I have no idea how many hours of my life I have wasted on Facebook.” I agree with this statement because it is true. We have wasted so much time on Facebook and other forms of technology that we have lost time for other, more important things. Facebook and its counterparts do help us in many aspects like staying connected but we forget that we have real things in life that are right in front of us to stay in touch with instead of wasting time with cyber friends or a cyber-community. Technology does have a good side. It can assist us in many ways.
An advantage of this is most of the feedback will come from devote Carmex users who want their opinion to be heard. They are already buying the product, so they might buy the new product when it comes out in the near future. A disadvantage is many Facebook users do not take the time to complete the surveys, or never even know when a new survey is posted to Carmex’s Facebook page. Also, the demographics of Facebook users may cause them to vote for a particular flavor and the opinion of others will not be sampled. 2.
I had never even heard of this site until only day on Facebook, I was looking at the newsfeed and I saw a like post from my husband that was for Rally point. In the following paragraphs, I will discuss the cost, advantages and disadvantages of these three associations. I just joined Linkedin and RallyPoint so my experience will be limited. Part 3: The Cost All of the sites, I have chosen for this paper are free at or for a slight cost you can have Premium services. Like most websites, they lure you in with free to set-up but then limit what you can do so you feel like you should pay the money for the other services.
I was actually quite disappointed with the poor selection that the movie theater offered the hearing impaired because not only was there only one theater choice but also only one film to view. I also was not privet to the knowledge that the movie changes each week which means that if there is a movie that you are waiting to see you’ll be looking online each week to find out if you can catch it in time. This week’s selection, according to the website, was Jack and Jill, so I thought I was able to take my daughter because of the PG rating. However I had decided to call the movie theater because I had lost track of time and needed to recall the time of the film when I was surprised to find out that the movie changes every Thursday and unfortunately the new movie had been rated R. This turn of events essentially ruined our family night out and I was forced to find a babysitter for my daughter while my significant other and I went to see the unplanned film Tower Heist. Do to the unexpectedly long and arduous drive to the theater we arrived a little later than expected and even though it was only a 7:40 pm showing, it was the last of the evening so there was not a chance to see a later movie.
Facebook pages advertise certain messages in peoples newsfeeds and also notify friends of a user that ‘become a fan’ of that company. Facebook’s social beacon was not favorable to users at first because it was “opt out” not “opt in” which meant advertisers would display activity without first asking the user and that lead to unhappy users who said it was “an invasion of privacy” .once the social beacon became “opt in” users were much happier with the service. Q.3)
Now, people can have a virtual face to face interaction across the globe in seconds. Because of these new innovations, some people believe that they have ruined how we interact rather than improving it. Natalie is one of them. Although, she makes valid points about the issue, she doesn’t successfully persuade the reader that technology and social network has ruined our ability to communicate. The Huffington post is mostly based as a news blog.
Vidding – Free Expression or Copyright Piracy? Instructor: Amy Goffinet BUS250: Corporate and Social Responsibility Lilia Rios October 06, 2013 Vidding is the practice of making new videos, sometimes called songvids or fanvids, which takes existing clips, usually from different sources (Lawrence & Weber, 2011). Many people do not know that viding is something that we do or use everyday, not taking into consideration that we may be breaking the law on others intellectual property. Personally, if you do not make any profits off it then you are not breaking the law in any way. If you are uploading stuff onto the internet, then that is a form of expression of one’s free speech because
Politicians and political parties are keen to use websites, blogs, wikis, podcasts or having listings on social networking websites like facebook and twitter as a way of reaching voters, especially young voters due to the fact that Young voters are less likely to vote. Voter apathy is a major obstacle for all political parties and politicians alike, with only 61% of voters turning out to vote in the 2005 General Election. On the contrary, however, one way of arguing against the view that the media is the most influential factor, is to argue that social class plays an important role. When voting analysis began in 1945 it became clear that social class was the most important factor in the way people traditionally voted. People tended to vote according to their natural
