Your Top 5 tips for using the Internet
Requirements for this project:
For this assignment, please find a story about an individual's use of social media (it can be a positive or negative use) and explain the story and the effects that this choice had on the individual's life or the life of others. Also, please explain how Immediacy, Permanence and Lack of Control played into the story and give the individual advice for their online life.
The Article I read was a negative article about a police officer who threatened a mothers daughter for the mom putting her child on facebook. He made cruel comments and threatening to take her away at night and criticising the mom for putting her on the internet. This accident impacted the police officer because he was then fired from his job and has multiple court hearings now. This will be bad for him in the future because all he had was being a police officer with not coming into that job with a college education and now that he was fired there's really nothing us for him to do that will pay his bills.
Things that we learned in class like Immediacy, Permanence, and lack of control played a big role in this article.
Let's start with the easy one, Lack of control. One this was posted it messed up his whole life. He had no control over what others did with this comment or what they had to say about it. Some was livid like M Gonzales and some thought he was just giving a friendly/ scary/ wisdom message like Tracy Whitham.
¨I think he was attempting to warn her that posting your child could put her in danger and to hug her because it could be her last. Stop posting or using your children. The Internet is open to a lot more than you realize.¨
¨Yeah! The Internet is also open to idiots like you. Same harm can come to adults as well. I suggest you stay off social media.¨
Permanency played a role because after he posted it although he deleted it others took it and it became viral. There was nothing that he could do about it and that's what made OPPD and OPPD police chief upset.
OPPD Police Chief Francis Donchez said. “It was obvious that our officer did not meet the standards of professionalism for the Overland Park Police Department. Overland Park has terminated the officer, effective immediately.”
The Last one that we learned about in class was Lack of control. It was simply nothing that he could do to make everything disappear from the world. Everyone of the points that we learned in class played a role in his case and everyone's else case. This made me reflect on what i post on the internet and it should make you be cautious about what you put on the internet as well.
My personal Advice to the officer was that he should have never said those comments even if he really did not mean to say them. If I had to say something to everyone I would say that Everyone should think before their post and make sure that what you say is not hurtful in a way you did not mean it to be.
