In ECMP 355 on January 13/11 I found the topics of online identity and the work of social media to be both intriguing and enlightening. With possessing an online identity one has to manage praise and criticism and not take them personally. The task of separating online praise and criticism with personal emotion is something I would want to learn more about. The question I have with an online identity for social media programs, is how does cyber bullying get managed? I am curious to learn the process.
The second topic I found interesting is how social media influences politics. The politicians of the 21st Century have used social media tools to spread their party’s message to the countries voters. An example would be United States President Barack Obama and how his speech was carried through social media. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsV2O4fCgjk
