Adult Couples Could Be True

Words: 1759 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76249885



What is interesting to me is that the conservative Christian cry used to be stop watching porn on the internet, or that your kids would be pimped out on the internet by perverts. Now, social media has become the latest "sinful" activity.

Perhaps Rev. Miller should get on the phone to Sarah Palin, and counsel her about her kids' activity on Facebook. Bristol Palin found time from her "Dancing with the stars" practice to get on Facebook with her sister Willow to ride on a friend who had the chutzpah to say "Sarah Palin's Alaska is failing so hard right now." Willow's response was to call the poster a gay slur, and Bristol jumping in the fray to respondL "you're just running your mouth to talk sh•t." I give the Palin girls credit: the apples didn't fall from the tree. They attack just like their mother.

Letter to Mark Zuckerberg

Words: 1198 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 46815288

I actually agree that money is an important concept in the contemporary society and by gaining access to as much as possible someone can make wonders. The numerous areas lacking basic needs raise public awareness regarding the way that people need to think in order to make the world a better place. Even with this, lacking the funds to help people there means that one is powerless in the face of suffering.

Despite the significance of money today, one should also acknowledge the importance of being human. This is exactly what the initial Facebook involved -- people knew that this was a social network built on the need to bring people together rather than to simply increase someone's profits. Individuals would use it as a place to escape society and to get involved in a community where things other than money were important. Appreciation for simple things was possible there…… [Read More]

Large number of respondents will require large number of questionnaires to be given to the individuals and this would have high financial implications.

Delimitations

Due to the problem of fear of the information that if the Facebook members disclose will be used against them in future, I intend to guarantee them anonymity on any information given and confidentiality by ensuring no names or sensitive information is required in the questionnaires. On the time constraint, the questionnaires will be designed so that it takes small amount of time with few open ended questions. On the financial, the samples taken will be done randomly so that even if it's quite small compared to the whole Facebook membership, it will be representative.

In this way, it has even come to supercede basic email interaction as a way of establishing lines of communication. Moreover, the nature of the forum is such that the lines of communication are always open and function in a way that is multidirectional.

As a result, Facebook is today continually redefining both the way people use the internet, and even more importantly, the way that people intercourse socially. Such is demonstrated by the evolving purposes which social networking sites have come to reflect, increasingly eschewing previously prominent cultural tendencies emphasizing modesty, privacy and disclosure only to a close circle of friends. The aggressive expansion of one's social circle via such networking avenues has produced myriad unconscious rationales for sharing such personal information. As Salkever (2009) observes, this has become an ever more persistent condition of youth culture, with personal disclosure mirroring these instincts amongst peers and in a celebrity…… [Read More]

2004 and now is one of the world's popular website. Facebook has over 845 monthly active users and over 483 million daily active users. There are also 425 million mobile users (Protalinksi, 2012). The popularity of the site is so much that when security breaches occur, the private information of near one in every seven people in the world is at risk. ith the site being a place where people keep their personal information, there is also the risk that this information becomes valuable to potential employers, though for all the wrong reasons. The open nature of Facebook means that people you do not know have access to the information. It is argued that people need to be careful when they use Facebook, and take care of their personal information.

Words: 1272 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 38746438

Business

There has been some disagreement among people about whether Facebook is good for business. Some people suggest that Facebook is an invaluable marketing tool that can really help business, particularly emerging businesses, by helping them with publicity. Other people warn about the dark side of Facebook. Although it allows good news about businesses to spread virally, it also leaves businesses open to some dangers. For example, unlike on business websites, businesses have no control over what people say about them on Facebook, so that a disgruntled customer or a customer with a grudge might be able to do significant damage to a company's reputation, even if such damage is actually unwarranted by the underlying scenario. Despite that caveat, there are five ways that Facebook is good for business: 1) it allows a business to manage its reputation; 2) it allows a business to engage in event promotion;

Facebook's 2012 involvement in a behavioral experiment on a series of its unknowing users

Case Presentation

There is much controversy with regard to Facebook's role in a scandal involving users being followed and exploited. The company is responsible for performing a study where 689,003 individuals on Facebook were manipulated in an attempt to determine how particular ideas influenced them. These respective users were divided in two groups: one of them was provided with news feeds containing positive information while the other was provided with news feeds containing negative information. As a consequence of the experiment, analysts determined that the first group was more likely to make positive posts while the second was inclined to post negative ideas.

Facebook's attempt to interfere with people's lives and analyze how this affected them raised a series of questions:

as this experiment ethical?

as this experiment legal?

The Facebook page must incorporate a means to provide customer feedback. Hence, the Facebook page will feature a feedback form. It will also accept messages so that customers have another channel to send administration suggestions and constructive comments.

Ten-Year Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg

My 2011 challenge is to become a vegetarian and only eat meat if I kill the animal myself. The reason for this is that I feel lucky for having such a great life.
