The bad ways of using electronics are, if you go on a dating app you could get catfished, that 's when you see many pictures of the person you want to date but you go to their house and that 's not what they look like at all. If you are playing pokemon go you can get hurt or badly injured by not looking where you are going. If you text your parents that you are in danger the sound of you getting a text back from them asking what the house looked like you might alert the stranger and you shouldn 't even contact your parents first contact the police if that was really happening to you. Technology it can also bring you bad websites that you shouldn 't be on.
Gladwell in his piece Small Change: Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted actively rebuttals the argument that social media can be a tool used for social activism. Gladwell undermines the authority many people believe social media to hold by pointing out the formula for social media is a large range of networking; not hierarchy which creates roles, jobs, and leaders (410, Gladwell). Gladwell continues to assert that this networking is held together by weak ties of fake friends, whereas he supports face to face interaction that sparks true connection and change (406). He further utilizes the example of the lost phone and bone marrow transplant to highlight his view that social change does not come from participation which “go fund me” and
Although this has been on my mind for such a long time, I believe that Toby Turner is innocent. There is no evidence that Toby had did all these things. I find it so dumb and stupid of how April handled this situation, I mean hear me out. Why would you post this on Tumblr, but not go to the police? I mean if I were to be
One teen activists who can show this is Alex Lin. As stated in, “Alex Lin Helps Reduce E-Waste | TakePart TV” by “TakePart”, he tried to pass a law in Rhode Island that makes it illegal to dump e-waste there. E-waste is a shorter name for electronic waste. The law was denied. This shows that the lawmakers were a group that tried to stop him.
We could go on and on. As many did on Twitter. (“We had no gas explosions in our house this year. Thank you, Mr. President for your hands-on leadership…”) (My Button’s Bigger Than Yours).
I have heard that you were considering banning the Harry Potter series from your school’s library, so I have a few reasons why you should not ban Harry Potter. First of all, did you know that In a poll, “15% said that Harry Potter was a bad influence because it portrayed witchcraft. 45% said that it was entertaining, but no important life lessons, and 39% thought it was a good influence and had positive lessons to teach.” Harry Potter is a fun, magic-filled, fantasy that takes kids on an amazing adventure.
While young people are having less sex and sex with less people than previous generations (Monto, 2014), one only has to go to a frat party to see that casual “hook-ups”, or sexual encounters, are far from rare. The question is whether or not this so-called “hook-up culture”, in which casual sexual encounters are socially encouraged, is detrimental to women—and while Stano (2016) would argue that it is, I would agree to disagree. Out of the five points she argues in her article, I take particular issue with her argument concerning sex positivity. Stano (2016) first cites sex positivity as a benefit of hook-up culture, stating that the normalization of casual sex has created an atmosphere where sex is viewed in a positive light, which has removed
I don’t post a lot on social media this is mainly due to the fact that I don’t see the need to shout my opinions, post kitschy food videos, or tell the whole world what I’m doing, but with the recent school shooting making a resurgence of political content on my social media I feel it has come time for my opinions to be heard. I may offend some people and in advance I apologize; however, I think that I need to address what has been on my mind for a while now. First of all, let me preface this by saying in my utopia there would be no guns; however, I recognize the importance of guns to some people and accept that as a fact that I am unable to change. I also recognize the importance of guns in the unperfect world we live in, for instance, guns used in war (what wars we are in is a separate issue I would rather not talk about), self-defense, etc.
False assumption: A. First false assumption: Claire Perry suggests curtailing online activity late at night by unplugging the internet router; moreover, she says that teenagers have no right to keep their messages private and that parents ought to feel empowered enough to demand access to them. I believe that this is a huge mistake because children would feel dominated by their parents without any sense of freedom. Evidence: According to a parenting editor at Common Sense Media Caroline Knorr, who was mentioned in the article “should parents snoop on their kids online?”
he refers to—his or anyone else’s”. Though she made a compelling point, I disagree with her. The point of the film is not what Instagram does to society as part of a political agenda. The film does delve deeply into implications of conformism, not just how she might’ve foresee. The film shows the danger of hollow interactions and aimless scrolling that might result to anxiety and depression because of social
The type of connection you have with acquaintances who might merit their friendship on Facebook, or follow on Twitter, but not, for example, have the opportunity to borrow your car. Activism is an action
How else would we know that the middle east is at war? How else would we be able to see what happened on 911, without photos or videos. The reason that so many people are afraid of solitude, is because we don 't fully understand how too separate the two. I 'm one of those people, who can go either or, but I 'd rather not be lonely. I couldn 't imagine living alone, because I was raised in solitude.
In the article “Let Kids Run WIld Online” by Danah Boyd She is mainly talking about how parents should let their son or daughter use the internet without any surveillance. I get how the internet can be an easy way to encounter rapist ,terrorist ,sex offenders ,and what young people say “cat fish” in other words someone who pretends to be someone who they aren’t. There is a show on MTV where they find real people who have someone (catfish)who they try to investigate whether they might be legit or not. After the internet came out to a vast majority of people (around 2000’s)
Snapchat is a platform that I have been dragging my feet on for a myriad of reasons. The premise did not appeal to me; I don't like to be in pictures. Also, I find myself utilizing other platforms so frequently - adding another type of social media to my life seemed tedious and time-consuming. As I have watched students use it over the past few years, my initial hesitation has transformed into a heightened curiosity. From first glace, the time spent snapchatting and time spent actually chatting or engaging meaningfully did not seem to equate.
