Social media and the internet allows us to share videos, music, information, and photos. We can share these with hundreds, thousands, and sometimes millions of people- without us even knowing. Sometimes when you share with someone you trust, they may break that trust and share it others. What you would do? - Have you ever shared a photo online, like this girl in the video? - Based on your own experiences, is this an issue in your community? - Let's choose a different...

There are 19.5 million Twitter users, 65 million Facebook users, and 700 thousand Path users. WOW! Such large numbers! Even I am included in those s...

Others think that social media is about the way we get many updates from people who we follow and maybe someone out there thinks social media is a part of a new marketing s...

Social Media Phenomenon: What Could Be Easier Than Speak Up Our Mind? "Tweet up our mind" could be. I have attended two schools in two different Asian countries. One is in an emerging country (which happens to be my country of origin) and the other is in an affluent city-state. Students in both schools do not seem eager to speak up in the classroom.
