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.



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.

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.

Business There Has Been Some Disagreement Among

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


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;

Strategic Profile and Case Analysis

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]

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.

5.0 Marketing

5.1 enefits of Facebook Page

Facebook pages provide numerous benefits. For example, the Facebook platform supports UserVoice, an externally hosted feedback forum (lack, 2012). lack (2012) states, "Another approach to getting customer feedback on an ongoing basis is to use a hosted feedback forum such as UserVoice."

5.2.1 Development and Management Costs

Facebook does not charge a fee for the Facebook business page service. Furthermore, design, development, and deployment of a Facebook page social campaign is relatively inexpensive.

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. In order to practice thankfulness, I want to be more connected to the food I eat and the animals that give their lives so I can eat them. Mark Zuckerberg, January 1, 2011

There are certain business leaders who make impact on their companies and often on the world of business because of their philosophies, action, and businesses they lead. Among the more recent top performers is Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, who took an idea and transformed it into a billion-dollar empire in less than 10 years. To gain some new insights into how Zuckerberg leveraged his modest concept into the world's most popular social media network, this paper provides a review of…… [Read More]

Unconsented Facebook Behavioral User Research

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?

2008 Election

Facebook and Presidential Elections

In a recent article for The Christian Science Monitor, writer Gloria Goodale called President Obama "the undeniable king of digital outreach" in the 2008 election (Goodale n.pag.). No candidate before him had had access to the kind of technology available to Mr. Obama and none of his contemporaries made use of the new social media quite like he did. His campaign's use of Facebook separated candidate Obama from the pack during the primaries, although both Mr. Obama and Republican rival John McCain used Facebook during the presidential race. Social media changed the face of the 2008 election and ensured its role on the political scene of the future.

Because Facebook is still relatively new and has only been available during one presidential campaign, little research has been done on its efficacy. Data from Pew Internet reveal that sixty-five percent of social network site (SNS)…… [Read More]

Through New Media

New Media

This work will propose three potential issues or challenges to address and will identify two potential social media communication tools and describe what could be done to solve each issue using these two tools. According to Graham, (nd) Social media includes social networking platforms including Facebook and Flickr but social media can also be such as "bulletin boards, podcasts, blogs, wikis, etc." (Graham, nd) In fact, social media is "anything where users can participate, create, and share content." (Graham, nd)

Issue to e Solved

The issue chosen to be addressed in this work in writing is the issue of government failure to adhere to constitutional values in governance in the U.S. House, U.S. Congress, Legislature, and Senate and throughout the country various State and County Courts.

Finally a major threat to Facebook is the government regulations that might inhibit the company from expanding in the manner that is wishes.

In order to be successful in the future Facebook has to develop a strategy that fully exploits the company's strengths and opportunities, while also minimizing the weaknesses and threats of the organization. To this end four strategic alternatives were developed for Facebook. Strive to increase the number of users over the age of 26, Ease of use and increased privacy settings, Foreign news source and collaboration. Each of these alternatives are feasible and need to be implemented in some form if Facebook is to be successful in the future. After careful evaluation it is apparent that increasing the ease of use and improving security and privacy settings is the most advantageous strategy that can be implemented by Facebook.

Privacy and Surveillance

Bennett, Jessica. "Should Facebook Ban Sexist Pages?"

Misogyny is alive and well online; the nternet provides just another forum in which bigots can express their views. n "Should Facebook Ban Sexist Pages," Jessica Bennett (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/11/05/should-facebook-ban-sexist-pages-the-reality-of-misogyny-online.html) suggests that female bloggers can control the discourse by raising awareness about the presence of misogyny and working to correct the underlying social problems that spawn it in the first place. n many online forums, misogynists can hide behind the cloak of anonymity that the nternet provides. Even when identities are exposed, as on Facebook, sexism remains rampant. As Bennett puts it, "Facebook is just a newer version of the same old problem," (p. 2).

While Bennett fails to effectively address the central question she poses in the title of her blog post, other authors tackle the subject well. For instance, Brendan O'Neill of The Telegraph (http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/brendanoneill2/100115868/the-campaign-to-stamp-out-misogyny-online-echoes-victorian-efforts-to-protect-women-from-coarse-language/) accuses all those who would view censorship…… [Read More]

In the peer-reviewed online journal First Monday (http://firstmonday.org/htbin/cgiwrap/bin/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/3086/2589), Eszter Hargittai notes that young users of Facebook are savvier about protecting their privacy than is commonly feared. However, Facebook has been under a lot of scrutiny lately, related to the site's privacy options and default settings. According to an article appearing in the online Wall Street Journal, (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204224604577030383745515166.html ) "Facebook Inc. is close to a settlement with the U.S. government over charges that it misled users about its use of their personal information, the latest sign of widening public concern over privacy in the digital age." Hargittai champions personal responsibility and empowerment: which is far more useful in preventing privacy breaches than government intervention.

With a new Facebook phone (http://www.itworld.com/it-managementstrategy/227281/facebook-phone-buffy-privacy-slayer), set to reach markets, consumers are understandably suspicious about the pervasiveness of the social networking tool. Just how far are we willing to allow social networking to monitor our interests, beliefs, and ways of life? Facebook presents an interesting conundrum: we get more out of our Facebook interactions and friendships if we share more about ourselves; yet the more we share, the more of our lives becomes free fodder for marketing companies.

Savvy users of Facebook, like the young men and women participating in Hargittai's study, know how to restrict who sees what on their Facebook profile. It is up to the individual to make the privacy setting changes that are most appropriate to the user. Instead of crying about how a company wants to make money, Facebook members should learn about the Web tools they use on a daily basis.

Such businesses can therefore approach the opinion leaders with incentives to recruit new members to the buying service.

I would personally not participate in group buying experience on Facebook this is because it can lead to protracted legal battle with those Facebook users whose profiles and postings were studied without their consent. Using such information to track members' activities and purchases on the Web for marketing purposes is a violation of someone's privacy. This is especially tragic if personal information that members had not intended to share is gleaned to third parties.

The Facebook experience with Beacon spells doom for the two group buying business opportunities. Businesses that embark on usage of text-analytic software to probe the content of the member profiles and postage message with a view to identifying their interests in specific products or services violates the privacy of Facebook users.
