Unfortunately, social media is widely used by abusers, online media have a multiple to contravene, Many perpetrators ‘hide’ behind the fact that they may not be able to be readily identified, saying the thing that they would not consider saying face-to-face, which could be regarded as a coward.

                                        New media has changed!!

 the way communication unlike the one-way communication paths displayed by “old media” formats such as television, radio and paper-based but now new media technology is both digital and interactive. From connecting with customers to making it easier to complete with people nowadays people can use media to spread news faster than in the past. Therefore, they don’t give accurate information on this news before they share news which is the reason why they have fake news. When the term “fake news” comes up, people usually think of social media posts with rather fantastic, implausible stories. While posts shared on social media is its most visible aspect, there is so much more to fake news than exaggerated articles titles on social media feeds.

Fake news may seem new, but the platform used is the only new thing about it. Propaganda has been around for centuries, and the internet is only the latest means of communication to be abused to spread lies and misinformation. It’s a way to spread news widely, the well-known advantage of the new media is to faster spread the news. It should be an excellent way to receive the news but it turns out the more rapid news disseminates the more unidentified news spreads.

For example, How did Donald Trump be elected? Since the previous poll, Hillary Clinton has always led And more clearly, Trump’s extreme policies have already analyzed this issue: website Brand Inside Is the result of Americans affected by capitalism That makes globalization happening around the world. The question is whether it is globalization only or that brought Trump to this point.The world spotlight focused on Facebook again when analysts and media said that Facebook is an important part of Trump’s win. Because it is the most effective source of spreading fake news And these fake news that motivate people to vote for Trump.Currently, 6 out of 10 Americans consume news primarily via Facebook, changing their behavior from watching it on television. Listen to radio from mainstream news agencies.

The issue with Facebook being attacked is the news selection algorithm shown on the feed page. Blognone readers probably remember the news of Facebook Trending algorithm that was revealed to have a particular content screening department. Providing more news space for one party Followed by an attempt to adjust the algorithm And most importantly, after the adjustment, The Washington Post tried to monitor Facebook for 1 month, still found fake news on the Trending page up to 5 news and 3 news that was incorrect.But Facebook does not seem to seriously fix this problem. (Or do not specify a technical strategy to eliminate fake news), so more and more fake news. The more Facebook influences the use of the news of the billions of users Considered to be very scary.

 Everyone on social media has an impact on politics in America, as well as how media affects our lives.  But in the end Mark then confirmed that it was a fake news. Who will be responsible for this matter? And the voting election results  are out.It can not redress the past.

Social connection is praised as the indispensable feature of the new media craze. The enthusiastic users of social networking and social media enter into the platforms embracing social engagement which helps create strong interpersonal bonds among humans. The thriving of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram has given the opportunities to strengthen communities. Once social media have been introduced to people’s lives, they can connect themselves regardless of geographical locations. This differs from the past since people could disconnect the extrinsic communities when arriving home and locking themselves in their room. However, it seems to be that the escape room and personal sanctuary is more limited. The easier accessibility to one’s life through new media platforms facilitates cyberbullying. There is no place to hide. The smart devices with an internet connection can carry cyberbullying forms to someone’s life more readily. 

Online bullying includes sharing, sending, posting, texting negative, harmful, and false content about someone. This also refers to reveal personal and private information which leads to embarrassment and humiliation. The prevalence of social media and digital blogs and forums. With the salient features of new media such as persistence, permanence, and difficulty to notice, cyberbullying is now creeping to every life with or without consent. In 2017, the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice reports that 15% of schoolchildren were bullied through online platforms or by text. More importantly, the opening window of harsh words, hate speeches, and extreme critiques are gradually deteriorating human being and mental wellness. New media becomes an alternative weapon to a mental break down. 

        The best way to ensure success is to think carefully before everyone post, and constantly evaluate what are posting and  overall online activities.Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are useful platforms and serve their purpose, but they don’t exist in a bubble. Just because you’re communicating at a distance with your audience doesn’t mean you can throw caution to the wind and say anything that comes into your head. The last thing the world needs are more keyboard warriors.Before you share your post with your audience read what you’ve written and then re-read it. Then check the spelling because it matters more than you might think. You want your business to be seen as professional and competent – not careless. Don’t forget it’s your business’ professional reputation that’s on the line when you share content on social media platforms, so you have to tread carefully. Think carefully before you hit the share button!
