We need to be careful. 

Gracie Marcoux's curator insight, March 24, 2015 2:29 AM

The article, in summary, goes over how there are so many users of social media around the world, especially young adults. Apparently, terrorists absolutely love twitter. What we need to realize is that social media can be taken as a terrorism breeding house, and everyone is subjugated to its danger.

This applies to terrorism in Unit 4. How? Instead of direct attacks like 9/11, people are now targeted worlds away. And that's far more terrifying.

Laura Edwards's curator insight, August 22, 2014 8:29 AM

1. This is the original video that sparked my interest in the topic. I think it expresses perfectly how absorbed people are with their phones and how much they are missing out on by constantly looking down and not participating with whats going on around them. This video is a great combination of interesting visuals and quirky script that ensures the interest of the audience is maintained.

Mobile Tribes!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 2014 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!

Francisco Restivo's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:15 PM
