Social Media : Writing On The Wall
BY DELWIN KEASBERRY
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 01, 2014
Through social media, we are more connected and informed than ever before. Delwin Keasberry, a social media personality, points out the imbalance which exist in the face of ‘hot topics’ between those few with quick and assured opinions. So strong are their voices that they drown out the moderators, and the crowd. On the other hand, there are those who remain silent and wait for the storm to blow over. Though some of us choose to stand apart, we are not unaffected by these kinds of situations. Are we doomed to intemperate viewpoints dominating the world of social media? Can we imagine being part of the movement that is willing to push the gap between these two extremes and grow into better adjusted social networking community?
