Facebook video clip
Watching this video clip tonight really got me thinking. One of the most important things that i learned from watching this is that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Whether or not we as a class think that facebook isn't only just a social networking system, others may not seem to think the same. People don't really know facebook can change your life, not only for the worse but also for the better. Just like how today in class, Angela Maiers told us how facebook got somebody a great job just by having those connections. One of the things that i actually agree with in this clip is that fourth graders that are using the internet for things other than school is beyond belief. The kids that are young aren't educated enough in that department. Yes, the internet is like a brand new world full of exciting new things, but the children dont understand the danger that comes with using the internet. Browsing the web is almost like a skill that you learn and get better and better with practice which takes time and knowledge. So yes, maybe young children shouldn't be on facebook by themselves, but what ift they had a little supervision? Wouldn't that be alright? These kids see everyone else sufing the web and it's just natural for them to be curious so of course they're going to want to get involved, so why stop them?
