Social network sites are unarguably an inseparable part of our lives now.
Some people indeed choose not to use them, but there are huge benefits of using one. However, the social medias come as double-edged sword. If you’re using it not wise enough, it may actually ended up hurting yourself.
Of course, there are a lot of ways to use social medias wisely and more beneficially, but for now, I’ll keep it to four aspects that I see are problematic these days.
Now, with the combined forces of netizens and corporations like Google, WordPress, Wikipedia and many more, SOPA/PIPA were delayed. They’re not dead yet, but it is not that unsafe to assume that this is our victory — at least for now.
However, the recent chaos on SOPA/PIPA reveals a greater and darker secret held by the government… Not just USA, but worldwide. This is no more a thing to made fun of. The fight is not over. Not just for the internet, but also for privacy and freedom of expression.
