As a young person very connected and reliant on the internet, I’ve kind of made peace with the fact that my data is taken and out there

Keywords: general , alexa , amazon , companies , data , facebook , google , info , internet , marketing , privacy , trust , webcam

There’s the argument that since we’re using Facebook and Gmail and stuff like that for free, our data is allowed to be collected (and used for marketing) as a trade-off, and while I guess that makes sense, it’s still kind of gross. Especially because that privacy doesn’t kick in once you do pay for an upgraded account or something. And with more and more companies just monopolizing everything like Amazon does for example, I think some have way too much info. If they get hacked, you could be screwed.

I actually already opened it — as you can see I’ve finished a few bottles, because I was so excited to try them.

Students with mental health issues are combatting both a pandemic and their classes at the same time

Keywords: {0}

I chose this topic because I knew I could get a lot of information on this topic as well as a large variety of responses. In addition, I believe I can briefly talk about another topic idea I had (students putting off classes/graduation) which will make the article more interesting to read and add even more relevancy.

I personally don’t think the hype would be as huge if it weren’t for social media

Starbucks doesn’t just sell coffee, they sell the brand name. People like well known brands and brand named items. Starbucks definitely became a huge competitor and that’s because they did something and everyone copied, yet they get more publicity with everyone coming up with new drinks and rating them in videos and so on. Social media makes the biggest difference. Like I’ve said before, you either make something new or do the same thing as everyone else but better. I’m not planning on making a business even though I’ve had some intrusive thoughts about it late at night, but I do know that the direction I’m going in my career is going to still include social media to some degree. Almost everything does now. You can’t be a company and not have a website. You can’t sell your products without getting your name out there. I know that I would like to get into designing or printing and either one of those directions will at some point lead to advertising and/or marketing. Which again, you will definitely need to be online for. It may seem repetitive or redundant but the times are changing and a lot of the older generation isn’t keeping up or wanting the change. I’ve noticed that even in the jobs I have had. I’ve been in retail mostly and just the ApplePay or chip readers have surprised them and they don’t want to learn how to use it. Or just being able to solve a quick problem with the touch of a button on their phone but they refuse to do so. Yes, they didn’t grow up with it and it may be confusing but everyone has to be open to new things and learning. That’s how people stay up to date and successful. Just at least knowing what’s going on and the basics helps greatly. I am always open to learning new things and I think that’ll definitely help me with my career choice. That’s what I enjoy most; the always changing and never ending of it all. You never lose interest and there’s always more coming to look forward to. So, yeah I’m not in the job I would like to be but I still see the media all around.

When it comes to social media, the feedback loop is broken because users are not customers

Keywords: Yahoo News , MSN , Default Partners

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Snap‘s Snapchat, Google — at the end of the day, they are not here to serve you and me. They can only survive if they serve their customers (the advertisers) first. The best way to serve those customers is clear: Get users addicted to the screen. Remember: If something is free, you are the product.

It’s time to change the conversation about social media

Keywords: mental health , conversation , facebook , follow me , friendship , instagram , netflix , network , online , real-life , social approval , social life , social media , the social dilemma , twitter

In my opinion, all kids and teenagers should grow up without [social media] but it’s impossible to control. At least make sure you set time for yourself without any distraction, ban your phone when you eat and when you’re spending time with someone in real life for example (even if it happens less often nowadays).

Advertising on News @ YouTube — Natural Disasters / Tragic Events

If you watch this video (post by ABC10 Sacramento / Northern California)

do you see ads / adverts? (I saw clothing from Shein) Who is making money on this advertising? Only YouTube, or does ABC10 also get a cut?

Isn’t it sort of unethical to make money by posting videos of tragedy / death / dying / catastrophic events — isn’t that sensationalism gone sadistic?!?

Advertising has been rebranded as a great thing! #upsidedown

the ruling class

The Cross Pollinator

From the Washington Post:

AdBlockers

There should be no barriers to people getting information and you shouldn’t have to suck on advertising in order to improve yourself or those people around you.

The Vampire Bezos owns the Washington Post and he should do something decent and run it in the public interest.

Do you need any more loot you bald fuck?
