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.
However, Google has a huge amount of information and much of it could be wrong. For example, the Wikipedia website is not a good source of information because normal people write the information in it and not specialists. Therefore, if we get wrong information, then our knowledge would be wrong. Carr also discussed that the Internet is an imaginary world, and all the people are behind the computer screens. Therefore, whenever we access a website, Google can collect more information about us, and if we access more websites, then that would be easier and faster for them to collect the information they want.
Your personal photographs and videos that you upload can be easily stolen by them.People who rely heavily on Facebook’s privacy settings may fail to appreciate its limits. In one famous incident, Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg released a photo to friends on Facebook. Though not a Facebook friend of the Zuckerbergs, one of the people tagged in the photo posted it to another website without asking for permission. Facebook privacy settings can leave you overly reliant on its privacy settings and encourage you to forget to exercise good judgment. Another disadvantage of Facebook’s privacy settings is that every time an update of the website is implemented, the individual security protocols that a user have in place revert back to the original default setting.
Texting is ruining social skills, which are important to building personal relationships, because there is no body language to show any emotion. This is because excessive texting is ruining people’s ability to communicate effectively. Some people are afraid of real intimate conversations and hide their true feelings behind a cell phone or computer. Texting via cell phones or chatting via a computer does not show a person’s emotions since one cannot determine whether the other one is happy or sad. Through text messaging via cell phones and social networks, people can become more individualized, distant, afraid, and indifferent.
Firstly, she claims that people's writings now are shorter and have no meaning when the social media are becoming more and more popular. This, as Wright states, is a result of character limits on social network websites like Twitter and Facebook. Secondly, she thinks young people are overusing new technologies like mobile phones and social media, which has a bad effect on their social skills because they don't meet face-to-face but texting. Then, as Wright mentions, the youth's future careers are going to be affected because they cannot handle basic social problems. In Wright's first argument, she fails to convince the reader that people are writing shorter and meaningless because people can still understand each other when they use those kinds of writing.
This article also claims that technology is a huge distraction in our lives in the sense that instead of traditional reading we now tend to skim read and even skip right to another article without ever returning to the original one. Traditional media has to live up to the expectation their audiences have of everything being a "shortcut". We are becoming too use to being able to access information faster and more conveniently. According to this article, technology is becoming more important than the mind of the human being. Google is used as an example of how we have begun a new form or way of reading and thinking as we hyperlink or way through the web instead of going to a library to read periodicals.
Virgin Mobile in the US (Situation Analysis) Customer Virgin Mobile has identified an opportunity window in serving customers aged from 14 to 24 (targeted by advertising). These customers have in common poor credit quality, which both means they are not eligible for traditional US carriers who require credit checks to sign up a contract and that they are going to be very sensitive to price. Also, this group provides low value and very unstable revenue for each subscriber. Finally, this kind of consumer is generally savvy and doesn’t like the idea of being fooled as a customer.However, this kind of customer is very prone to spending money on additional services such as text messages, graphics and ringtones. To them, their mobile phone is not just a tool to make phone calls; it is also a fashion accessory.
People tend to buy the same newspaper regularly, often for reasons other than its political stance, but they will be influenced by its editorial opinions. Outside election times, most readers will not realise that the Daily Mail favours the Conservative party, while the Sun seems to switch from side to side. One way in which this statement is correct, is it can be argued that the Internet now plays an important role in influencing voters. Like newspapers, websites are allowed to show bias. 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.
A second point anti-modern technology folks bring up is how these devices are replacing physical conversations. While it is true that people spend more time on social media websites and instant messaging services, it does not mean these services completely obliterate face-to-face communication. In fact, people use such services to communicate with people they cannot physically meet like family members or friends living abroad, or to set up a location and time to meet up. Anti-technology would also point out that today’s youth prefers to engage with their virtual followers and “friends” rather than participating in a conversation with their family members. While it is true, you can go out to any restaurant and find at least one family where everyone is facing down looking at their phones while
It has made the world smaller and more connected than at any point in history, especially with the invention of iPads, iPhones, computers, and mobile devices. A disadvantage of easily obtainable information is whether the information is actually credible or not. Many people look for information on the Internet giving no thought as to whether the information is actually trustworthy or not. There are some sites that look like they have correct information yet they may not be affiliated with certain groups or entities that endorse the copy or the information that the site contains. Misleading information can cause people to make unwise decisions about all sorts of life’s struggles from financial issues,
