Social media is awesome but it is also a bear trap just waiting for you to slip up. I posted in a earlier blog that social media and social networking were very dangerous and I stand by that statement, but at the same time when used properly, it could be very helpful. In the national news, there are a lot of stories that are being talked about regarding athletes, celebrities, and political figures but the chances are you heard about it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter long before you watched it on television. This is the new age in which we live. Even major news networks rely on social media to get their topics of the day. Privacy does not exist anymore because all a person needs is a cell phone, iPad, or iPod and they can post breaking news info in a matter of seconds, every mic is a hot mic and every iPhone is an open eye.
