The pros and cons
Social media has allowed people to communicate with a large group of people in real time. The integration of social media in mobile devices has also spread its reach, which has allowed for ease of communication between individuals. In an emergency situation, people will use social media to share information with others and relevant authorities. This would allow emergency worker to better understand the emergency situation, which would allow them to make the necessary preparations White, 2011.
People are finding it easier to report emergencies using social media. Government agencies have discovered that people will first share any emergency situation on social media, and they are monitoring social sites in order to respond promptly to any disaster. Social media provides….

Social Media's Massive Influence On Society
Does Media-ased Relationship and Communities Have a Damaging Effect on Society
Social Media's Massive Influence on Society
Current mass media enduringly influence people. People undergo exposure to this impact, which they are unable to shun since mass and social media exists in all dispensations. Modern media are a crucial element of the contemporary culture, and they fashion cultural characteristics and viewpoints of people. In this situation and context, the mass media may elicit a negative implication on the community because of the extreme violence, which comes through in movies, news matters and other shows and social media, inclusive of not only graphic but also in print media and radio programs (Conrad, 2002, p. 4). The negative implication of hostility in media augmented considerably in the effect of the immense spread and long-term implication of social media on individuals. It confirms beyond uncertainty that violence constantly renders the….

Social Media - a New Kind of Security Problem in Business
The Newest Threat to any Business: Social Media
Social media is one of the most significant changes that has come about in communication today. However, it can also have serious implications for business and for the privacy and protection of businesses and employees. Overall, social media is not something that can be ignored by businesses today, because it can offer worries and issues that were not thought of before it became so popular. Addressed here is the overall idea of social media, how it is used (and misused) by businesses, and what kinds of problems are appearing now that social media has become much more common for employees. Many of them use social media during their working hours, whether they are supposed to or they have just chosen to in order to pass the time. The conclusions drawn here indicate that….

The "United Breaks Guitars" phenomenon spawned a new era in consumer empowerment. As Kaufman (2012) states, "until very recently, there seemed to be fewer and fewer ways for ordinary people to fight back against powerful corporations." Now, consumers have a range of possible ways to get other consumers to change their purchasing behaviors -- hitting companies where it hurts the most. A friend recently posted on Facebook about a bad experience he had flying with Delta. Never mind the fact that his initial post led to half a dozen other responses relaying their bad experiences with Delta; within two hours, an acquaintance in his friend who happened to work for Delta list emailed him a $50 voucher for his next flight.
The use of social media as a tool for consumer empowerment is actually taken for granted in 2012. Consumers already know that complaining about something on Facebook, YouTube, or….

Media is an important tool of communication or instrument of passing round significant information. Some examples of media that comes to mind anytime one mentions the word are radio and newspaper, however there are other mediums of communication that pass for media such as the magazines, supplementary, guides, flyers, banners and catalogues among others. Of late there has emerged a rampant use of social media as a tool of communication.
Social media can be viewed as a social or shared instrument which enables communication from one person to another, exchange between individuals or groups and most significantly interactivity between/among the concerned groups or persons (about.com, 2011). Today, we have a good number of people running into millions of them who are registered as members of several social media communities and they rely on them heavily for communication since they have e very well established online social network with which they….

Recently, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) made its first social media-related ruling. The board adjudicated a case against Costco, and in this case the NLRB struck down Costco's social media policy as standing in violation of the workers' right to free speech (Little, 2012). The Board found that Costco's policy on social media usage was overly broad. The policy held that employees were prohibited from posting statements that "damage" the company and the policy was incorporated into the Costco Employment Agreement. The NLRB held that this policy was too broad. Specifically, some forms of speech by workers are considered to be protected speech. Protected speech includes work-related complaints, which are given this protection so that they can communicate their grievances both to other employees and to the company. This protection is related to the workers' legal right to organize.
The NLRB applies the same standards to protected labor speech….

Social media is an extremely hot buzzword in the business world today. However, it is not just a buzzword. According to Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein, social media is "a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content." (Kaplan, 2010, p. 53) As this paper will demonstrate, social media has had a tremendous impact on the business world particularly in the areas of marketing and public relations.
Social media is revolutionary is that it relies on consumer-to-consumer communications, whereas most marketing operations rely on business-to-consumer communications. (Mangold, 2009, p. 358) Consumer-to-consumer communications are much more natural and comfortable for the average person than listening to a sales pitch or an infomercial. With social media, consumers can learn about a company's product in an informal, interactive, and pressure-free environment.
Another key element that distinguishes social media….

This is not to imply that social media is responsible for our current issues. However it does not take a great leap of the imagination to see that society is becoming reconnected in a different, electronic way, and personal connections and interactions are suffering. Fr. Nicolas asserts that because of a lack of imagination empathy is lost. One can also see this as a manifestation of greed and situational ethics as in the Bart Simpson school of morality, "I didn't do it; you didn't see me; you can't prove it anyway!" Or in the philosophy "It's not cheating if you don't get caught" which evolves into "If you're not cheating you're not really trying."
Unfortunately, these attitudes are becoming more prevalent in our world. The irony of social media is that it fosters less sociability. We become technologically insulated from each other. As Fr. Nicolas pointed out, "When one can become….

Defining Social Networking and Social Media
The work of Matt Goddard entitled "Social Networking Vs. Social Media" states that social networking and social media "both have the word 'social' in them, but they should not be confused as the same thing." (nd, p.1) Social networking is stated by Goddard to be "the what" and social media is stated to be "the how." (nd, p.1) Social networks are comprised by peers "seeking and giving advice to make better decisions. Advanced social networking science can even tell us which people give out the….

With the advent of social media websites, many business administrators struggle to implement a workable and feasible approach of implementing social networking sites into their business models. Managers and consultants must work collaboratively to identify sound means of incorporating computerized technologies that support and foster profitable utilization of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Yet, despite the widespread and pervasive consumption of social media, many business owners simply fail to understand what social media involves, and, more importantly, how to successfully involve social media resources into their businesses.
This paper will first define and describe social media, explain how social media differs from similar concepts, such as User Generated Content and Web 2.0, explain the importance of social media inclusion in today's business models, and provide a viable approach to implementing the requisite and necessary tools to maximize customer satisfaction with social media outlets at….

Social Media & Networking Technologies
The importance of online identities among young university students can hardly be ignored. Part of an essential component of how young adults identify is through their online persona and presence. Since we seek to facilitate extensive student collaboration by building and fostering a sense of community we must find ways to harness the virtual communities, relationships, and online identities which already exist. To this end, I propose the creation of an internal site modeled on the Craigslist format, and the creation of a virtual study center. Where campus tutors could provide assistance and appointments late into the evening via webcams and technologies which allow them to write on the screens of the student requesting assistance.
In recent years there has been an an explosion of online tutoring sites aimed at tutoring students and providing homework assistance. Companies all over the place, including startups such as Virtual….
Online University Virtual Marketplace: Craigslist Model
Craigslist is a virtual community that has been around since 1995 (Torres, 2002) It is fairly low tech and has remained that way through the years. It is primarily a list service with many community portals, where anonymous local citizens list ads to provide or procure everything from jobs and furniture. The popularity of the website has only skyrocketed and with the human connection and sense community which is fostered because individuals are interacting with locals. The posts organized by categories include spaces where members can debate politics, philosophy, and even rant or rave about terrible and often humorous situations. The sections for artists to promote events would translate very well onto campus. It is likely that in the university setting the most popular areas would be the sale and purchase of textbooks, dorm and apartment furniture, carpooling, and dating services. The ability to get a deal on books or furniture or catch a ride across the country for thanksgiving would likely cement the virtual space as an integral part of student life.
Many of the drawbacks of implementing a Craigslist model all come down to a lack of administrative control of the virtual space once it is created. There is going to be difficulty moderating the posts without backlash from students who feel stringently regulated. Not to mention that under this model it would be cost prohibitive to monitor the services students listed or requested. Aside from key word security features which blocked
New Trends in Technology- Social Media Shaping Modern Society
The social media has certainly changed throughout history. Early on in history, social news was spread via word of mouth and through telling stories (Qualman, 2009). At one time, the radio and the newspaper were popular formats for social media. People would listen to the radio and read the newspaper to get insight to what was happening throughout society. Over the years radio has remained, but television became the main source for social media. The television had created the visual newscasts in which information and pictures were passed to hundreds of thousands at a much faster rate than previously. Today, people still listen to the radio, read the paper, and watch television but the advent on the Internet and the World Wide Web has changed the shape of social media.
The new social media has created websites and applications for networking with….

She argues that small business owners need to become better-educated about what social media is, how it works, and why it is so appealing to consumers. By understanding the nature of social media's success, perhaps through the Kietzmann honeycomb framework, the problem of small company marketing disadvantage can be overcome by using social media.
Smith and Zook (2011) argue that companies must make social media a centerpiece of their marketing communications strategies. Because social media is so revolutionary with respect to its impact on communication, companies need not only to participate is social media but they have to. Large competitors will also be using social media, so there may not be much source of competitive advantage from having a social media presence, but small business owners can gain advantage from superior use of social media.
