The disadvantages in not being able to reach as many individuals due to lack of internet or lack of email accessibility, provides major negative impacts for research. b. Facebook: Since it is social media, people get on there for other reasons. The people that fill out the Facebook surveys actually know the products, they aren’t just completing for the free stuff, and the information doesn’t get lost in spam emails. Some disadvantages of surveys are the broad consumer base risk. There are no new consumers as part of the survey.
They have refused to give us money to buy the newest video games, unless we get 3 more 100 percent on the tests. They have devastated our privacy. They checked our text messages and Facebook without our permissions. They have forced me to go to some places that I don’t want at all. They have dismissed our thoughts and ideas.
Diane might believe this is a wrongful termination because she is unreliable due excessive sick children. However, there has been no documentation to the matter or performance reviews that mention that she has been counseled on absenteeism. Greg on the other hand could believe that because he cannot work weekends due to religious reasons or disparate treatment he was let go. Cost Club is downsizing therefore, there will be no weekends work to perform or reasonable accommodations to be made on either side. Greg will not win the case based in religion discrimination.
I said this is not a real paper. The only reason I’m uploading is because the site required it. Hell, that’s not even my real birthday, nor my actual email address…I only use it for junk stuff that I really have no intention of ever checking again. In a way, that email address is kind of like a 6-digit phone number that a girl will give out in a club. She really doesn’t want you to call, but she knows you aren’t going to count the digits she’s telling because she’s not going to give you enough time to do so.
Rhetorical Reading: “Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?” In Stephen Marche’s article “Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?” (2012), Marche claims social media is a cause of many people becoming isolated from the world. He uses the story about Yvette Vickers to give us an example of how social networks can interfere with our lives. Marche’s purpose for this article is show how social media can make us lonely in order to get us to not use it as often as we do. His attended audience is anyone who is interested or uses social media. I can’t relate to this article because I do not believe Facebook can make anyone lonely.
Carr thinks that the net makes people dumper because he proved the net makes people scattered and superficial thinkers. I agree with Carr. Until I read this article, I was thinking the internet makes people smarter but the scientific evidence turned my thought. In additional on his thought, I think the net wastes a lot of time of our lives. Carr said that “ People who are continually distracted by emails, alerts and other messages understand less than who are able to concentrate.” (qtd line 9).
If it were in a form of a website it could perhaps be more enticing and more appealing to me, but alas it is not. It seems to be something that my parents would read and do nothing about, it generally seems ineffective and stale, the facts and statistics it brings up although true they seem to be a far cry from a real word context and because of that it seems like propaganda to make people second think using a social network despite its best efforts to shroud such an intention. In conclusion I feel that the Collegian is a better text relative to
But Kozol makes some big important points why being illiterate can hurt the person in all parts of life. Kozol states that, “They cannot read traffic signs and, while they often learn to recognize and decipher symbols, they cannot manage street names which they haven't seen before” (Kozol, 4), this is like being trapped inside your own world. If someone cannot read something simple as a stop sign they just have no life to be living. What good are they to the society if a person cannot read? Everything these days counts on mostly technology, being able to understand and read technology is a huge part of today’s society.
I personally believe that America is in a state of moral decline. Rather than rewarding those who choose to live their lives with a sense of justice and morals, the media glamorizes depreciative choices such as smoking, alcohol and general unjust behavior. This subsequently leads those who chose more conservative lifestyles to feel ostracized. More often that not, when a life of refrain from drugs, sex and partying is portrayed in media, it is in a context of the mundane even going so far as to proclaim that people who choose this lifestyle have no lives. The media definitely has a direct correlation to what is socially acceptable in society.
Experts have been talking about the negative effects of social networking for the last decade or so. Whether they hinder your ability to formulate complete sentences and spell words correctly due to the abbreviation of everything (or the “Text Talk” as it is called). Others have argued that social network sites are harmful in that they make information about us available to anyone anywhere, at the click of a mouse. But does chatting online hinder our ability to make friends in real life? Or as Alex Wright asks in his essay, Friending, Ancient or Otherwise, “as we stretch the definition of a friend to encompass people we may never actually meet, will the strength of our real-world friendships grow diluted as we immerse ourselves in a lattice of hyperlinked ‘friends’?” (431) The answer is simple: No.
