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.

DARPA Wants To Simulate How Social Media Spreads Info Like Wildfire // NetWorked World

DARPA Wants To Simulate How Social Media Spreads Info Like Wildfire // NetWorked World | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

"When it comes to understanding which, what and how popular information travels the Internet, we have a lot to learn.

That seems to be the idea behind a new program that the researchers at The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will unravel next month that aims to simulate the spread and evolution of online information.


The goal of the program -- Computational Simulation of Online Social Behavior (SocialSim) is to develop what the agency calls “innovative technologies for high-fidelity computational simulation of online social behavior. SocialSim will focus specifically on information spread and evolution. Current computational approaches to social and behavioral simulation are limited in this regard.”

 

DARAP said such highly accurate, scalable computerized simulation of how online information spreads would help analyze strategic disinformation campaigns by adversaries, deliver critical information to local populations during disaster relief operations and could potentially contribute to other critical missions in the online information domain.

“At present, the U.S. Government employs small teams of experts to speculate how information may spread. While these activities provide some insight, they take considerable time to orchestrate and execute, the accuracy with which they represent real-world online behavior is unknown, and their scale (in terms of the size and granularity with which populations are represented) is such that they embody only a fraction of the real world,” DARPA stated.

 

DARPA said specific SocialSim objectives are:

  • Develop technologies that can accurately simulate online information spread and evolution at scales representing populations of interest (i.e., thousands to tens of millions)
  • Develop efficient and robust methods for providing data to support simulation development, testing, and measurement
  • Develop rigorous methods and metrics for quantitatively assessing the accuracy and scalability of simulations of online information spread and evolution

 

SocialSim is but one of DARPA’s forays into the social media/Internet world. Late last year it announced a program called Force Protection in the Online Information Environment which looks to develop automated software that can detect online intent to harm U.S. service members stationed overseas.

 

In 2014  DARPA said it was rolling out its Social Media in Strategic Communication(SMISC) program with a goal to develop a social networks science and create automated and  operator support tools and techniques for the systematic use of social media at data scale."

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Excerpt:
{A research note from UBS concurred that the M&A environment will likely change. The firm added that “secular changes in technology and usage would lead to the convergence of the cable and wireless industries.” Deregulation could mean “fewer reporters, viewpoints and choices,” said Craig Aaron, CEO of Free Press, according to USA Today. Free Press in part advocates against media consolidation. “The last thing we need is policies encouraging more concentration,” Aaron said. “We need outlets competing with each other for scoops and viewers, not a single dominant voice.”}
