Social Media in the 21st Century
Is it making us stupid?

 

Seminar or Conference Presentation - The benefits of Social Media Platforms in the 21st Century.

Fifty years ago people seldom used the telephone, wrote letters on paper, and saw television as a luxury. Fifty years ago most human beings spoke to less than two hundred people in their lifetimes. Today communication is quick, cheap, versatile and had worldwide capabilities. Children are introduced to digital media in the crib, and people everywhere can broadcast themselves to millions using a smart phone.

Is this a good thing?

Are communities suffering or getting better? Are we choosing machines over people? Are we losing the ability to talk and build relationships, or are we creating capacities to touch lives and strengthen relationships? Do social media platforms cheapen the value of human relationships, or elevate the visibility of human need and amplify the call for social justice?

In this one hour session, Mindie Burgoyne dispels the fear that social media platforms are making us stupid and more self focused. She makes a case for the huge impact they've had on the world for the good by giving the common individual a platform for having his or her voice instantly heard around the world.

During the session she will highlight the Big five platforms - Facebnook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and blogging with live demonstrations of each.
