Week 9: The Social Networking Revolution.

G’day!

This weeks topic of discussion is the revolution of social networking.

There are many scenarios in today’s society where social media is the key element in conducting social changes.

In this uprising paradigm of social media, people that come from lower-status countries finally have a platform where they can voice their concerns and opinions with the world.

Social media has a certain effect on society which leaves humans to wanting more and more of what they’re seeing online. People find creative ways of voicing their opinions and social media platforms give these people an opportunity to do exactly that.

When a person wants to promote a protest, they will go to Facebook and schedule a live-stream, then head over to Twitter where they will use tweets to spread the word and bring up issues that they’re protesting about and then moving to YouTube to promote the event using intense music and different effects.

Since there is no licence needed to post on the internet, people can promote certain events without penalty.

Cheers,

Jack.

  1. Hi Jack, this is a really good summary of the ways the internet can be used like never before to mobilise , coordinate and disseminate. I think a good point to add would be the instantaneous nature of the internet with no filter on what people are communicating.

  2. Hey Jack! Your blog post was really well written.Your remediation is also a good reflection of the content in your blog post! I feel as though there are both positives and negatives to the freedom of posting on social media. I totally agree with the fact we constantly want more of what is being portrayed online! Do you think that it has reached a point where the content online needs to be regulated? Here is an interesting article as to why it potentially should be http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z3mnmnb
    I personally am on the fence!
