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.

AT&T and Chernin Group jointly acquire majority stake in Fullscreen through Otter Media

AT&T and Chernin Group jointly acquire majority stake in Fullscreen through Otter Media | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Otter Media, the adorably-named joint venture between AT&T and the Chernin Group, just bought a majority stake in Fullscreen.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

more here on Chopping up the internet to serve to the big telecoms and cable ISPs as they seek to gain control over content as well as the delivery system.


Excerpt:

Fullscreen could play a big role in Otter Media’s attempts to figure out the future of TVwith a focus on niche programming — Crunchyroll, which caters to fans of Anime and Korean drama, is also part of the venture — and find new avenues of distribution through AT&T. Here’s how Strompolos put it in a blog post Monday:

Peter Chernin’s The Chernin Group… brings unparalleled entertainment experience to Fullscreen, which is critical as our world continues to merge with the broader entertainment industry. AT&T is a worldwide leader in mobile, which is a key area of interest for us, and their TV footprint is poised to expand significantly. (…) Together, we will expand Fullscreen from a powerful network of online creators to a major player in the future of “over the top” video; focused on programming with and for today’s young adults.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is the most important place to have neutrality protected (or at least equally important). and the most vulnerable and the ISPs know it. Many people can only afford internet on 1 device if any and that is increasingly their mobile wireless device.

What’s next for net neutrality? 5 things we learned from the debate ahead of the FCC’s decision

What’s next for net neutrality? 5 things we learned from the debate ahead of the FCC’s decision | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
After 3.7 million public comments and an orgy of lobbying, do we know what the FCC will decide on net neutrality? No, but here are five things we've learned so far.
What’s next for net neutrality?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Why are we not calling for the removal of the revolving door man Wheeler and his buds like him on the on the commission?  The man was placed there by the industry to complete the commercial coup of the internet. Politicians are too afraid of these big money telecom and cable donors and the media they have and will soon have a strangle hold on will be used against them. The right wing Johnny come lately anti-net group rushed to misinform the uninformed and trick them into working to cut off the openness and inclusiveness of their own communications system.....nothing new there.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

So who do you believe? Who do you really trust your ISPs and or do you trust a man who invented the most amazing communication connection in history and didn't patent it to make himself the total controller of his inventions as Jobs, Gates and others did or to become disgustingly rich and powerful?  Or do you trust a man who used is invite to as a guest at the London Olympics to send the people of the world a message.  Jul 27, 2012 - During the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics, Sir Tim had a clear message to share with the world – This is for everyone. The world would be an amazing place if everyone had his heart! 



Please join the fight to be among those that are fighting to protect and preserve the openness and connectedness of his gift to humanity. We do not want his thoughtful gift to become a corrupted curse. The WEB is for us but like all things that come to us in life it needs to be protected, shared properly with people, and sometimes fought for to keep the hands of those that wish to steal it or do harm and corrupt our connections to one another.
