The Effects of Social Media on Society and Marketing

This video describes the effects of social media on society & how marketing
can utilize it. There has never been a bigger force for change than
technology. It changes everything about the way we live, the way we get
around, the way we eat, and even the way we talk to each other. With the
rise of social media, the idea of community has changed radically. It’s no
longer about the people around you. It’s anyone, anywhere on the planet
that has a shared interest. Helping brands make those connections is where
we come in.

The Effects of Social Media on Society and Marketing

Treydon Holzem says:

Social networking is a tool used by people all around the world. Its
purpose is to promote and aid communication. However, this type of
technology might be doing more harm than good. It is not only changing how
we communicate, but how we interact with each other in daily life. Sarah
Zay, of USA Today, stated that “With the rise of websites such as Facebook,
social networking may be on the verge of replacing traditional personal
interactions for the next generation” (1).Traditional interactions will
continue to be at risk if we don’t realize the effects of our social media.
Social networking affects our lives in many ways, including our
communication, self- expression, bullying, isolations, friendships, and
even our very own sense of humanity.

Social networks, such as Facebook, were created for the sole purpose of
helping individuals communicate. There are many other reasons that these
technologies are used, but communication is still the number one. Many
people use these networks to talk to their friends in other cities, states,
or even other countries. There are many situations that do not allow the
use of telephones; this is why social networking is preferable by many.
These networks not only allow communication between friends, but allow you
to meet new people. Similarities and common friends can create new bonds.
This allows one’s social circle to expand. If you ask around how people
think social networking affects them, many will say that they, “Have an
expanded circle of social connections, and stay in touch more” (PC Magazine
Online 2).These networks are becoming the modern way to make friends. These
new friends communicate through these networks. However, standard
communication is not the only way this social technology is used.

On these networking sites, users normally create pages that represent them
in some way. They post pictures of themselves and their friends. Their
friends comment on these photos. This concept seems simple enough, but its
use is very different depending on the age of the user. Adults are known to
be more mature about what they post and how they interact online. It is
more likely that adults would, “Use their profile pictures as a way of
casually showing themselves, their family, or possibly a recent trip they
took” (USA Today 1). This is a reasonable way of representing yourself
online. Teenagers, however, use this new technology in a way that could be
dangerous. In this stage of their lives, they care more about their need to
impress their peers than mature reasoning. Teenagers gain popularity
through the interesting pictures they post. Comments that are left on their
pages mean more to them than actual words. In order to get the results they
want, they try to get a reaction from controversial images of themselves.
This adolescent need to be “cool” leads to “gross amount of young girls and
boys attempting to impress one another by showcasing themselves in mature
situations or displaying their physique. For instance, many pictures that
teenagers post online reveal underage drinking, smoking, and partying”(USA
Today 1-2).

These explicit pictures are very harmful to the user. Posting inappropriate
pictures are demeaning and damaging reputations. The self-expression used
on these networks should stay age appropriate. Users will receive more
respect if they stick to pictures of their last vacation, birthday party,
or field trip.

With so many teens using social networking, it has become easier to target
one another. Cyber bullying is a form of bullying that is only done through
the web and other technologies. Social networks make it worse for the
victims. Bullying is difficult in person and even harsher over the
internet. When cruel comments are posted on an individual’s page, anyone
can see them. However, on the networks no one is there to witness the
attack. This makes it harder for a victim to ask for help. The bully has an
easier job insulting the other because there is no threat of getting caught
by a close adult. These kinds of social attacks are harmful. All types of
bullying are wrong, though cyber bullying might be the worst yet. The
victims are vulnerable online and the insults made towards them deadlier
because “computers mask faces and the majority of insults, threats, and
taunting go on without repercussion. There often is no make-up or
apologies, because no one witnesses the harmful effect the words may carry”
(USA Today 2). Teenagers must understand that bullying is always wrong. It
does not matter if the victim cannot see them; it is still immoral and
disrespectful. Social sites should be used to communicate with each other
but not to torment each other in the comfort of one’s own home.

With the constant use of these social technologies, less people are
communicating in person. Many people are becoming more isolated due to the
lack of personal interaction. It is becoming easier to go through life with
less personal confrontations and conversations. Many people are becoming
used to only conversing through their computer. This trend has continued
and lead to an, “Interesting number of developing adults that function well
in a keyboard setting while failing at human interaction” (PC Magazine
Online 2). The failing of human interaction is a horrible result of this
new technology. Without person-to-person interaction we will lose our
language skills and have trouble with public speaking. Normal debates and
confrontations will be made more difficult due to the inability to read one
another’s body language. This is not healthy for our development because
“Humans are social animals who need to have regular interaction with others
to experience the full benefits of socialization and lead a balanced life”
(Current Issues 2). This kind of isolation is degrading towards our society
because it is necessary to be personable. If we continue to be isolated
than all of our communication skills will drop lower than they already are.
These new communication sites were made to improve communication, not
destroy it.

These social networks allow an individual to have thousands of “friends.”
However, these supposed “friends” are really no more than strangers. On
these web sites we allow strangers onto our page for petty reasons, such as
having the same taste in music or movies. We spend more time with these
people online, when we should be spending time with our real life friends
that we’ve known for years. This lack of dedication to our real life
friends leads to shallower friendships. Many people care for their Facebook
friends, but they don’t even know what their lives are like. Many of those
people will “know what fifteen of their friends had for breakfast, but
don’t know whether any of them are struggling with major life issues” (PC
Magazine Online 2). This is a common occurrence in online friendships now.

Many don’t even realize that they have ruined their other friendships. Why
do we do this to ourselves? Why do we create connections with people who we
don’t know, or even care about? It all stems from, “an underlying fear of
being alone. Social networks may form shallow friendships but the
connection makes you feel as if you are not alone” (Our Media, Ourselves
2). This fear is why we allow ourselves to act against our brains and our
hearts. Friendship is about being there for each other and being able to
tell each other about important issues. It is not about who comments on
Facebook quicker.

The constant use of this kind of technology is harmful to us as a whole and
to our humanity. When we contact one another through these sites we are
limiting ourselves. When you use networks like Facebook, “you’re
representing yourself on a database. Then you live according to that
database. You fill in checkmarks saying this is what I’m interested in,
this is who I am, this is the music I want to hear, and you become a
caricature of yourself”(University Declares a Week Without Social Media
3).This kind of representation lowers us and our humanity. We are known
only as what we write on our pages. Our humanity is what lets us be
ourselves. We have the right to control what we say and do, “We invent
ourselves, and we invent our own taste. We decide what friendship means,
and furthermore, we intend to make a living because we’re not subordinate”
(University Declares a Week without Social Media 3). This is what makes us
who we are and communication is a large part of that. If we stop making our
own choices than we’ve lost what it means to live and be human. We should
be able to tell each other about ourselves in person and make real friends.
These social networks have damaged many things, but they cannot be allowed
to harm our humanity.

Although many people around the world use social networking, it should only
be used as a tool. Social networking aides long distance communication
greatly but there must be a stopping point. It cannot become our main form
of communication and interaction. There are positives to this new
technology but nowhere do these positives outweigh the negatives. If we
continue overusing the aid of these sites, then it will keep effecting our
communication, self-expression, bullying, isolation, friendship and
humanity in negative ways. There is nothing that can substitute for
personal interaction. Social networking is the problem and we must
eliminate its overuse for the sake of our fut

very dangerous too when it comes to our privacy. We should know our
limitations in posting our photos, personal details and more. We are
responsible in protecting ourselves .

YES! Forget social media. It’s a trap. It hasn’t helped equality on this
planet at all. Fuck their pacification and happy hogan tactics as well, the
illuminati have everyone against eachother while brainwashing people, that
it’s all okay, and if you don’t play along, than you’re a “bad apple.” Like
get real world, your cognitive dissonance, denial and emtionally bankrupt
ways are lunacy and emotionally hypocritical.
