Smith, Kevin. "Facing the Future of Social Media." (2010):n. page. print http://blogs.library.duke.edu/scholcomm/2010/05/18/facing-the-future-of-social-media/

Social media is improving as the years go by. There are some effects of the media that technology need to have more privacy. Social media today should have more settings where you know for a fact your post or blogs are safe from other users from viewing your things. Individuals who invents these social websites doesn't give the users enough privacy that they aim for.  New media such as the "ebook" has been sued for invading into other personal privacy. Other websites such as face book are losing user because of the lack of privacy. Inverters of social media should not be able to read your messages or post or be able to hack into your own personal things. Social media as well as "new media" should have the appropriate sharing of knowledge on the things that you do. The good thing about have privacy is its your OWN. Nobody should be able to view your personal belongings.

This video about social media covers different individuals point of view about the cause and effects about social media. In this video the couples verses people alone have different points of view, but they all come together. One couple said that having ex interfere with your social life can cause conflict in your relationship. While the people alone describe how social media is getting a little out of hand. More people would like to text instead of engaging in a conversation now a days. The people in this video could agree that social media is taking very lightly. More people should go out and meet people, talk to people, and so forth. It's hard now a days to talk to someone over social media because you never know who they are. This video is a very good intake on how different people view social media.

The Technology Disruptions of Today

"Tech columnist David Pogue addresses how disruptive technology is changing our lives at the CoSN conference. ...

 

Moving on to students, Pogue reinforced what most educators already know: Communication has to be made in real time through social media and texting. Many students don't use the traditional forms of communications that adults do, such as email and landline phones."

This article Tanya is explaining that in the past couple years technology has out done itself. Technology is becoming life. Now you can be able to use cars without even driving them yourself, can set your house alarm from your car, and translate your words on your screen. Technology is not a bad thing- it can be bad with the wrong people, but technology itself is very important. It's changing the world day by day and people need to get use to it because technology is just going to continue to improve as the years go by.

Social Media Is Making You Stupid

Hope's insight:

Stillman, Jessica. "Social Media Is Making You Stupid." Times News. & Inc, 21 Feb 2014.Web. 9 July 2014.

http://time.com/9207/social-media-is-making-you-stupid/

Using social media for face book or playing games can make you stupid instead of using your time more productively. Studies has shown that putting volunteers into a room where everyone contacted everyone verses the one that's by themselves. More people would get there answers from the people around them instead of looking for the answers on their own. This may causes confusion in the long run because of the simply fact your not learning anything by looking up or getting answers from someone else. You may seem smart because you have the correct answer, but when you are by yourself you wouldn't know where nor how to get your answer from just because you cheated. You may seem smart now, but wait until you get in the real world where you need your knowledge.

Doctors should text. Here's how.

Doctors should text. Here's how. | social | Scoop.it

The media noted a trend of doctors connecting with patients through social media and texting as early as 2012. Doctors can respond to simple questions their patients send via email or text, and even analyze images of a surgical site in the healing process that a patient sends.

Connecting with patients virtually has lots of benefits: less travel time for patients, reduced costs, a more consistent relationship with a primary care provider even at considerable distance.

But even though we are now well into 2014, there are still no official guidelines or rules from a medical communications institution detailing how doctors should go about texting with patients. As with many other areas of medicine, a lack of guidelines leads to confusion and underuse of texting, especially among older doctors who earned their degrees before so many technological options were available.

The American Medical Association acknowledges benefits in using social media, but also warns doctors to protect patient privacy and “maintain appropriate boundaries” with patients. Doctors report being unsure how to phrase their messages and how to modulate their tones.

Texting well requires technique

Texting has its own language and style, and length restrictions come into play as well, which can add to the confusion. What might have been a five-minute conversation in the office needs to be distilled down into a line or two via text.

This is a new phenomenon and there’s no roadmap, but a few best practices have emerged. Patient surveys have helped. A new online survey designed to gauge patient preferences has yet to be published but was presented at the mHealth Summit in Washington D.C. in December.

Frederick Muench, a clinical psychologist at Columbia University Medical Center, designed the survey and directed another study in a similar vein earlier this year.

Both batches of results indicated that 98 percent of patients were potentially interested in using text messaging as a part of their continuing care strategy.

Saving everyone time

This type of “telemedicine” is increasingly popular, and could not only help patients connect to doctors quicker, but could save the healthcare system money in the long run by preventing unnecessary doctor’s visits; if a question can be answered in a one line text without a face to face meeting, so much the better.

“These tools are embedded in my work day,” said Natasha Burgert, a pediatrician in Kansas City. “This is something I do in between checkups. It’s much easier for me to shoot you an email and show you a blog post than it is to phone you back. That’s what old-school physicians are going to be doing, spending an hour at the end of the day” returning patients’ phone calls, she said.

As for best practices, here’s what else Muench found:

1. Patients prefer statements, not questions.

2. Complete sentences are best.

3. They generally don’t like for doctors to use “text-ese,” like “LOL” or “wat.”

4. Surprisingly, they do like positive emoticons.

5. Also, make sure grammar is correct.

Some of these may seem counterintuitive, like no to texting lingo but yes to emotes, but one central message does emerge. Texting is a casual form of communication, but the patient-provider relationship is still professional. Condensing but preserving what you would tell them in a face-to-face meeting should honor the subject matter.

In this article it explains that having to conversation through a text instead of coming to the doctors would be more convenient for people. Survey proved that patients would like to text about questions that may concern them instead of coming in- wasting gas or the doctors time. This method would save so much time for the doctors as well as the patients. This method haven't been in use, but is soon to be in effect real soon. Doctors also agreed that texting instead of setting up appointments that's only at least 5 to 10 minutes would save huge time. This method was also presented to Washington D.C. in December. Texting questions or sending pictures would save the hassle and confusion. Also connecting with patients virtually is wonderful with all the benefits that comes along with it.

Millennials Spend 18 Hours a Day Consuming Media -- And It's Mostly Content Created By Peers | Entrepreneur.com

Millennials Spend 18 Hours a Day Consuming Media -- And It's Mostly Content Created By Peers | Entrepreneur.com | social | Scoop.it

How many hours a day do you spend on Facebook? How about texting friends? Reading magazines? If you're a millennial, it may be more time than you think. New research by social-influence marketing platform Crowdtap indicates that individuals ages 18 to 36 spend an average of 17.8 hours a day with different types of media.

 

Those hours represent a total across multiple media sources, some of which are consumed simultaneously. For example, a twenty-something may report spending two hours a day on Facebook, an hour a day answering texts and three hours a day watching television, which would count as six hours total, but may only be three "real" hours of her day if she does some of those things at the same time.

 

"Millennials are always on," says Anna Kassoway, Crowdtap's chief marketing officer. "Some of it is passive consumption. A lot is media hours that are overlapping."


Some forms of media are more important to millennials than others. Social media is a top priority, as 71 percent say that they engage in social media daily. User-generated content -- which encompasses social-media posts, photos, blogs, email, texting and talking to others about media -- occupies about 5.4 hours of the average millennial's day. That's 30 percent of their total daily media consumption.

 

The only rival to user-generated media is the old standby of traditional media -- print, radio and television – which accounts for 33 percent of millennials' media consumption.
