Question and answer
How might knowing the advantages and disadvantages of social media alter how a person might use social media?
Disadvantages: - The chances of being hacked, especially if you disclose important, critical information. - The ability for "lies" and "rumours" to spread like an virus, often distorting the real truth. - Increased chances in cyber bullying, [ which often leads to emotional distress and even suicide. - Being used as a substitue for visiting news websites; people getting too much information
from places that provide no sufficient source. - A "distraction" for many. People consider Twitter and Facebook, for example, too distracting. - The general stigma; "all people on FB are dumb teens and everyone on Twitter update us on stuff we don't care about". Advantages: - Ability to spread important news. - Makes people more widespread about certain issues. - Have the opportunity to start groups and activist organisations that can make everyone globally aware (stuff like Occupy Wall Street started on Facebook). - Keep in contact with people who are from long distances. - Advertising; businesses' who advertise on social media make people more aware that this business exists. Basically, it's more advantageous to advertise now on social media than in the yellow pages. ]
