It is much easier to talk to a computer than it is to talk to real people.

The real danger of social media | Communications Matters | D&E

The real danger of social media | Communications Matters | D&E | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and have concluded that the danger of social media isn’t just what is said there about you. The real danger of social media is what you don’t say there about yourself....

 

Obviously danger can lurk in social networks and blogs....

 

Similarly there is danger in how news media use social media.When news broke of the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, news media frantically searching for fresh information discovered a Facebook profile of a New Jersey man with the same name as the alleged shooter and ran with the photo. It was the wrong person.

 

None of this is new. Gossip columnists and ambitious journalists have used similar tactics for years.What is new is the accelerating pace with which news media use social media for stories and sources....

Thoughtful look at the challenge of real-time news and social media.

Deanna Moore's curator insight, September 12, 2013 8:40 PM

This was a very interesting blog, I agree that social media has made it dangerous for all its active users. It doesnt take much to copy everything you have and pose as someone else, and thats just the beginning... Once they have got your information and added all your friends it wouldnt take long to ruin someones life. Its so easy to obtain information about someone and to post it even if it isnt true. But thats the beauty of the internet, it doesnt matter if its true or not someone will believe it and thats all it takes

Social media may have revolutionized communication, but it threatens our ability to communicate. Without the benefit of body language, we are operating with a major deficit.
