Gold-Mine Through The Social Media Today: Amos Obi
Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, , course: Media Impact on Youth, language: English, abstract: Social Media causes us to be. It acts at every moment in our lives. It is there at leisure time, at meals time, at games time, at prayer time, at good and bad times. Social Media has geared our lives 24X7. What can we do without it? Can we do without it? Is it a must? These questions become a center of concern for parents. teachers and elders who are directly or indirectly caretakers of the youth in the families and the society. Why my child behaves this way or that way is a worry of some parents. Why my pupil does not behave the way I guide? is the concern of the teacher. Why the youth do not follow the old ways of the ancestors and parents? is the concern of the elders. I am alright and I do not need your help - is the common statement of the children and youth who are totally dependent on social media. They feel confident of what is coming and going across through their internet apps. They think they have all the knowledge they need and feel confident that they have solutions to all their problems. Parents and children have their social media related concerns whereas the parents, teachers and leaders have the worry about their children and pupil. We shall go deep into the social media and its drawbacks on the lives of their innocent children and youth and see how or whether it causes concern towards their parents, teachers and leaders.

Social Media. A Cause Of Concern Today: Albert Fernandes
Whatever happened to journalism? When did the American news media go from the respected, trusted purveyor of truth to anything but? How did we go from the ´´Glory Days of Television News” to today’s growing distrust and derision of ´´the media”? Is the Internet our only journalistic hope? Can we remake the media into a meaningful part of the check-and-balances system fundamental to the democratic principles on which this country was founded? 1. Language: English.

Please note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book. American Girls, by journalist Nancy Jo Sales, is the result of a two-and-a-half-year investigation into how social media is shaping the development of girls in America today and, by extension, what this means for fostering self-esteem and self-respect. Sales interviewed more than 200 subjects, girls ranging from 13 to 19 years old, querying them on the new social norms that have been set by the explosion of social media over the last five years and how this plays out in their daily lives. Sales traveled to 10 states across the country and spoke to girls from diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. She discovered that the effects of social media on girls of all strata are startlingly similar: The steady stream of online interactions has drastically changed the way girls conduct and, more importantly, conceive of and value themselves, often to damaging effects.

American lawyer-turned-sociologist David Riesman published his first book, The Lonely Crowd, in 1950. Aimed at academics, it nonetheless gained a large popular audience. In it, Riesman explores the links between social character - the ways in which members of a society are similar to one another - and social structures. He argues that as the United States became predominantly consumer-driven, rather than production-driven - particularly after World War II - American social character changed. Riesman said that prewar Americans had been largely inner-directed: they based their behavior on their own internal values and beliefs. Postwar Americans were becoming other-directed, with external groups, including peers and the media, now a key influence on the way they behaved. Riesman was observing, rather than judging, this change. The public, however, read his book as a criticism of the United States´ newly developing social character. Riesman´s work popularized sociology, helping to establish it as an academic discipline, and today it provides a fascinating window into the 1950s American psyche. 1. Language: English.

Ethics - described briefly as the norms by which acceptable and unacceptable behaviors are measured - has been the concern, and perhaps the great dilemma, of sentient humans since Socrates subjected it to philosophical inquiry almost 2500 years ago. Socrates believed, without universal acceptance, that the most pertinent issues people must deal with are related to how we live our lives, what actions are and are not righteous, and how people should live together peacefully and harmoniously. A vast parade of philosophers, religious leaders, politicians, professors, and self-help gurus have followed Socrates´ lead through the ensuing centuries; it´s a popular and enduring subject, perhaps because it is so complex, intriguing, and pervasive in every facet of our lives. Today, in 2015, ethics dominates our news in the form of anti-ethics. The headlines in newspapers and the lead stories on TV, radio, and Internet news are typically about such abhorrent behavior as lying, stealing, revenge, convictions for corruption, gratuitous murder, and misuse of public or other people´s funds for personal gain. Readers, viewers, and listeners can hardly be faulted for thinking that we live in a corrupt society, exactly what Socrates and others did not want or envision. Perhaps the anti-ethical stance of the media is the most anti-ethical part of our society. Nevertheless, the battle for a more ethical society rages unchecked and unabated; one needs only to examine the dozens of books with ´´ethics´´ in their titles on sale at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, including this one and those that are listed in Appendix G. I daresay that the authors, including the two who created this audiobook, hope that their words and thoughts will help move us toward a more civil society. 1. Language: English.

Power or Depression?: The Cultural Roots of Abuse points out the historical roots of abuse and patriarchal society´s systematic breeding of depression as something like a cultural disease. However, the author does not stay with the analysis but shows practical ways to get free from the cultural trap so as to find a way of personal liberation and creative realization. The approach of this book to healing the abuse pattern is mainly focused upon establishing a strong identity, building soul values, and realizing a high level of personal autonomy. This involves working on the integration of emotions and the dissolution of patterns of codependence and emotional abuse in our lives and relationships. And beyond current cutting-edge psychiatry that has recognized the devastating effects of codependence and emotional abuse in individual relationships, this essay shows these same effects to happen in the relation individual-organism, individual-group, individual-ideology, and individual-sect. Fusion is even more dangerous when people seek to dissolve themselves within organizations because what happens then is that they will indeed be eaten up by the organism and become wheels in a murderous system. One essential element in this process of identifying and healing an abuse pattern in your life is to stay as much as possible untouched by the current media propaganda that focuses on labeling certain people as abusers and certain people as victims, thereby occulting the real causes of abuse in our culture. In truth it´s the system itself that perpetuates abuse, as forensic psychiatry precludes any reform with the argument that the abused of today will inevitably be the abusers of tomorrow. 1.
