ARE YOUR OPINIONS REALLY YOURS?
What is even MORE exciting is when you base your opinions on someone ELSE's opinion. Who's to say they were educated about both side? Who's to say they are correct? This goes into the subject of expert vs. amateur. YouTube is a popular site for DIY and how-to videos: thousands of vloggers and beauty 'experts' give their OPINION on how to do things. For example: how to correctly tweeze your eyebrows, how to bake the best pancakes, and my personal favorite- how to calm a crying baby.
My question today is, "Who is in control of our opinions: Social Media or The People?"
My answer: YES. We the people ARE the social media. We are continually being influenced by each other, and it is our duty to make sure that the part of society that survives off of social media, be clearly informed.
I've noticed that one reason Donald Trump continues to gain popularity through the internet is because we keep discussing him. The way Social Media sites stay afloat is by how many clicks they get. This is why YouTube videos have advertisements, and why websites pay a lot of money to be in the top two spots on Google Search. This is why Facebook posts trending videos that are certain to get enough clicks. (You can take this as my opinion, but I saying this as a general observation. My opinion about this is that IT IS SILLY).
Stay tuned for more passionate opinions about these observations.
