Social Media

Date: 7th Feb 2017 @ 8:55pm

Hello Triton,

After all of our work on E-Safety today, I was wondering what your overall thoughts are about social media. 

Today we explored some of the dangers and risks involved with social media, whilst also considering the positive impact it can have on society.

What do you think?

Comment on the blog with the following:

1. A positive impact of social media on your life. yes

2. A negative impact of social media on your life. no

Here is mine to give you a hand in starting:

1. Social media is a good thing because it means I can stay in touch with groups of friends more easily, even when they are not living in the same country as me! We are able to chat regularly and organise events without too much fuss.

2. Social media is a bad thing because it means that sometimes I can go for hours without talking to a person who is in the same room as me face-to-face. 

Happy blogging!

Miss Jones

1. It allows people to talk to others without having to travel to their location. It is a great way to plan events and it keeps friendships going.

2. It can also be bad though because people can get absorbed into the computer world(not literally XD) and don't talk to other people as much. They don't witness the outside world as much and become introverts because they don't need to actually communicate with other people.

Very perceptive Oliwia!

Isn't it strange how something called 'social media', which is designed to help people socialise, can actually have the opposite effect!?

It's kind of ironic XD People really should lay off it for just a tiny bit.

There are lots of fantastic aspects to it too Oliwia! Perhaps we should see if anyone has any ideas for using it more positively on this blog?

I think that social media is a bad thing because random people can look at your profile if you haven't put your privacy settings high and it could lead to DOOM.

It is a good thing because if you want to go and play out with your friends you can text them and meet them easily and if you have a argument you can text them in stead of doing it face to face

Do you think it is a good idea to have arguments using social media?

Remember, we need to do our very best to leave a positive digital footprint!

1- Social media is a good thing because you can get in touch with your friends without having to travel as they may live quite far away . Also this means that you can plan events easily.

2- Social media is a bad thing because it means that you will be on your phone or ipad when you could be having fun with friends and social media makes you forget about the people you are ment to be playing with! :) ??
