Is Internet Addiction Real? - Facts & Infographic

Is Internet Addiction Real? - Facts & Infographic | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here are the signs of Internet addiction. Learning to balance the internet and computer into daily routines is a challenge for many people. Some get so frustrated they decide to avoid, never use or get rid of the internet and computer use in general.

 

Many go through a fairly long term obsession because it does seem that if you do not spend a good bit of time with the computer in a range of ways you do not master it well. I have seen in our family after the obsession there seems to be a fading off of obsessive use over time. Sometimes just because life happens and there is no time, but also because a certain level of success happens and it requires less time to maintain skill than develop initial skills and knowledge.

 

This article does not address the fact that many online friends we never have or would even want to have dinner with DO share common causes for real and are passionate about these causes when many of our families and real friends do not find them interesting and are not passionate.  These efforts to make the world a better, more just place to be are a very important function of the web.

 

The time spent on the web at work or at home can also help stimulate growth and inspiration for your work. I connect with others in my field and they inspire me and spark ideas. I am the only one at my job and does what I do....Many only appreciate what they do or certain select people in the dominant areas are doing. Connecting during the work day online can encourage a person to stay on task and reach for a higher goal by this contact to online networks in the same field of work. Real life contacts can often take the wind out of your sails. Online you can seek uplifting, informative,  inspirational contacts and info where onsite you must take what you get.

Maps of the World (a great website for maps!) also does weekly polls. This infographic is the 59th Fryday Poll, and it begins with a definition of addiction from the Merrian-Webster Dictionary and then goes on to explore a range topics including:

* A Generation of Internet Addicts

* Is Internet Addiction a Mental Disorder

* Facebook Addiction

* Gaming Addiction 

and much more. A variety of resources were used in creating this infographic (including a survey they offered on their website, Facebook page and through Twitter). The site does provide a link to a text only version and it says that version will provide references, but it was not working when I check it out.

Trend Magazine | The Internet of Things Is the Next Digital Evolution—What Will It Mean?

Trend Magazine | The Internet of Things Is the Next Digital Evolution—What Will It Mean? | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
The next digital evolution is the rise of the internet of things—sometimes now called the “internet on things.” This refers to the growing phenomenon of building connectivity into vehicles, wearable devices, appliances and other household items such as thermostats, as well as goods moving through business supply chains. It also covers the rapid spread of data-emitting or tracking sensors in the physical environment that give readouts on everything from crop conditions to pollution levels to where there are open parking spaces to babies’ breathing rates in their cribs.

We Analyzed 100 Million Headlines. Here’s What We Learned (New Research)

We Analyzed 100 Million Headlines. Here’s What We Learned (New Research) | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

It is difficult to overstate the importance of headlines. A good headline can entice and engage your audience to click, to read, and to share your content. In many cases headlines are the thing that is shared rather than the article. So you knew that. But do you know what makes an engaging headline?

To help answer this question we analyzed 100 million article headlines. We have set out below our findings from the research including the:Cox

- Headline phrases that drive most engagement on Facebook
- Worst performing headline phrases on Facebook
- Most effective phrases that start or end headlines
- Optimum number of words and characters to use in a headline
- Most impactful numbers to use in headlines
- Most engaging Twitter headline phrases
- Differences between B2C and B2B headlines.


While there is no magic formula for creating a viral or popular headline, there are many lessons we can learn to improve our content engagement. We shared our findings with a number of content experts to reflect on the implications of the research for writers. We have included their expert thoughts and advice at the end of this post. We have also included a section on how you can analyze headlines yourself using BuzzSumo.

World Wide Web Foundation

Founded by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web, the World Wide Web Foundation empowers people to bring about positive change.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Please join this group founded by the Man that invented the WEB for everybody not just your ISP or any Certain government to control. Regulating and protecting net neutrality means protecting open content access not censoring or selecting content. Hate and threats of violence are illegal online already... through net neutrality open access we can all help by flagging and reporting hate activities and sites online. Then these accounts can be closed by the host server owners and people can be arrested or fined or at the least interrupted and perhaps stopped. Please do not sit back while commercial interest or more Governments take control and ruin the founding principle of open access net neutrality.

Seniors and Broadband | Doug Dawson | POTs and PANs

Seniors and Broadband | Doug Dawson | POTs and PANs | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

A recent poll from the Pew Research Center shows that for the first time that more than half of Americans over 65 have a landline broadband connection in their homes. This is a milestone for the industry and is significantly higher than the last time Pew asked the same questions in 2013.

Since the inception of the web seniors have always had a significantly lower broadband adoption rate than other age groups, but this survey shows that seniors are now starting to close the gap. Part of this shift is probably due to the fact that baby boomers are now joining the senior category and bringing their much higher adoption rate for technology with them. But one also has to think that the benefits of broadband are luring more seniors into buying broadband.

The survey also showed the following.

Theresa May: Internet must be regulated to prevent terrorism

Theresa May: Internet must be regulated to prevent terrorism | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Prime Minister Theresa May has called for closer regulation of the internet following a deadly terror attack in London.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Regulating for open use net neutrality and privacy are critical and are under threat by both commercial and oppressive governments that censor. What is exactly May has in mind I'm not sure. I think making physical treats and using hate talk online illegal would be fine if very well clarified. Regulating this behavior by flagging it as people see it on the open internet is a great idea rather than censorship. Fining companies for not deciding soon enough if the flagged content was hate or just offensive and undesirable and taking hate or treats down and filing police reports when needed is a good idea. Invading everyone's privacy and shutting down freedom of speech by encouraging self censorship or discouraging the ability of people to peacefully assemble against policy or events they disagree with is not acceptable. There is a thin line between these two.

Looking ahead, these experts predict more disruption, starting with digital interfaces: They say voice-recognition (think “Siri” and “Alexa”) and “air typing” on connected surfaces of all kinds will become mainstream activities. A data layer will be superimposed on the physical environment, allowing more context, history, and insight to be gained when people interact with their surroundings. Artificial intelligence will be ever-more-deeply ingrained in decision-making and logistics. Gigabit-enabled applications will be common — as people interact with holograms of others in both artificial and real worlds that otherwise may not be easy to get to. They predict the very notion of “being present” with another person or encountering another place will change. In all, the expert respondents to Center questions argued that by the year 2025, the internet will become “like electricity” — less visible, yet more deeply embedded in people’s lives for both good and ill.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I stand with Tim Berners-Lee to support net neutrality and the recent Wheeler regulations put in place to protect the WEB as it was designed to be. Here is where you can sign up to stay informed as the New FCC chairman and others try to destroy the WEB as Tim Bernard-Lee designed it and turn it basically into your old style sponsored content of cable and TV. You only have a short time to comment to the FCC.... you can also flood Representatives to leave these protective regulations in place. 4 million responded before to make it happen and we will need double or triple that to succeed again. Computer geeks are pretty sure bots are filling the comments to support Pia.... look at the comments your self it look like that to me and I'm not a computer pro. Bots can't call the FCC or representatives or our ISPs to complain...I dropped 400 dollars a month services over 4 years to not give AT&T funds to work against me.

Without A Net: Rural Residents Band Together For Internet Service | Benny Becker | WOUB Digital

Without A Net: Rural Residents Band Together For Internet Service | Benny Becker | WOUB Digital | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Nearly half of the people living in rural parts of United States don’t have access to broadband internet, the high speed connection required for common uses many of us take for granted. Government and survey data show that in 65 counties across Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia, the majority of residents don’t have access to broadband–that’s one-quarter of all the counties in the three states.

With the internet continuing to grow in importance for school, work, and for everyday life, many disconnected rural communities see their lack of internet access as an existential threat. Some communities hope that by banding together, communities can find ways to bring fast internet to places it’s never been.

New Internet Privacy Bill Would Bring European-Style Regulations - The Daily Caller

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Auto opt in to privacy settings still sounds best to most people. Most people don't want congress or the FCC going around public will to make browser privacy harder. Most people also don't want to have congress puppets push agenda for our telecoms and cable company control for ALEC connections and the Heritage Foundation and other such groups with campaign funding and free publicity on mass media and news to elect policy makers willing to give them the deals they want rather than the deals citizens want. If the author of this article is right maybe these companies can pay the consumers for the right to their privacy rather than our ISPs or google.... we might even opt out if it's easy and all that great for us..... but stop shoving it down our throat and making it harder for each person to choose for oneself!
