A company called PaidContent has just released a new index called ‘Social Standing’ that allows companies to see if the branding for their companies or products are good or bad, from comments and likes on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
This is just another way that social media allows us to interact with each other and the wider community.
Social media has so many different aspects.
It can be a networking tool for future journalists (like me!), it is a place where stalking and raping (in regards to Facebook) are acceptable, it allows everybody to know what you are doing at any one point in time, it records memories in the forms of photographs and conversations, it allows interaction between myself and my friends in South Africa, my cousin who is travelling Europe and my sister in Bathurst…. Okay, you get the point.
Facebook and Twitter and every other social medium are a fantastic way of doing all the things mentioned above. Sure, there are dangers to putting so much information net, youve just got to be sensible about what you share.
