What differences do you notice between these various sites?

Questions:

1) Visit the websites of several social media sites (MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter). What differences do you notice between these various sites? Are you a member of any of these services? Why or why not?

2) In 2011, Google introduced Google+ as a Facebook competitor. Read this article:  Then conduct some research on your own about Google+. How do you think Google+ compares to Facebook? Have you tried using Google+? Why or why not? Do you think Google has a chance at successfully competing against Facebook? Why or why not?

3) Find an article online about an incident where an employee was fired for social media use. Summarize and critique the article in your own words. Do you think the termination of the employee was justified? Why or why not? Could the employer have done anything to prevent this incident?

student 1I am a member of Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and when I visit the sites the first difference that I notice is LinkedIn is still very obviously optimized for desktop users, while Facebook and Instagram have been changed a lot over the past few years to look like mobile, even when you’re on their desktop sites. This makes perfect sense because of the huge difference between their target demographic and how a majority of their users interact. There is an argument that streamlining the desktop and mobile versions of Facebook and Instagram would be easier for developers to support, sure, but when has Facebook and Instagram ever struggled with innovative development? I can’t help but think that “Meta” purposely makes their desktop sites kinda clunky so that people drastically prefer the mobile versions. Cell phones are probably the largest accumulation of personal data that most people have, so it’s in the best interest of their ads and metadata (pun intended) collection to prioritize mobile users over desktop. I think that Google+ was much too late to the game to compete with Facebook. Sometime around 2013 maybe, one of my friends tried to get me to join Google+ and that just seemed so redundant… I never joined or tried it. I don’t think they have a chance at competing with Facebook because Google+ has already been shutdown due to low usage haha. https://support.google.com/googlecurrents/answer/9195133?hl=enThis article talks about the trial and appeal of a woman (McVey) who was fired from AtlantiCare, a health care company, for posting negative remarks about the Black Lives Matter movement on Facebook. They were able to justify her termination because her Facebook profile listed her position with AtlantiCare, and the statements did not uphold company values. Was the termination justified is a complicated question… I don’t necessarily think that they should have terminated her (assuming this was the first problem they had with her social media), however, her defense of this violating her 1st Amendment Rights is just nonsense. The 1st Amendment only provides protection from actions of the State to control speech, not her privately owned company to protect their reputation. I think that the most employers can do to prevent this kind of thing is train employees on their online conduct standards, perhaps include the right to this kind of action in a hiring agreement, and to do just this – make an example out of employees like McVey. Employees being informed of the repercussions is the only thing that will prevent this from happening, but I think that we will continue to see both employee and employer behavior like this for a very long time. Social media and the public sharing of opinions will never go away.https://www.law.com/njlawjournal/2022/05/23/employee-fired-over-dog-whistle-social-media-posts-loses-again-in-court/?slreturn=20220622174656Show Less

student 21. I am a member of pretty much all of social media and I can see a difference between all of them but now they are really all becoming very similar they are working on a business model that everyone seems to enjoy and they are all copying each other. When I go onto Facebook, the only reason I use it is to talk to family and that is all I use it for, but it is set up to be a family-based network and nothing more. When I look at Instagram that is something I go on to really just see what people are up to like my friends and also just kind of waste time and watch videos on it that is what it is just made to do and that is really it. My space I have never used I just had an account it was a good run what they had going but nobody used it. 2. Google plus was close to Facebook I used this for a little while because I was a young kid and social media was just starting out I really didn’t like it very much it was really just unorganized and it really didn’t make me want to keep using it. There were not many people on this site so  I couldn’t reach out to anyone and that really made things difficult for me because I reach out to people when I need help with something. I don’t think google has a chance at competing with Facebook they are the powerhouse of all social media Facebook and that is how it is going to stay Mr. Zuckerberg has done his job and now he is coming out with virtual reality and that thing is just incredible if you try it out. 3. This article I found I already knew about but a kid made a Tik Tok account at Sherwin Williams he would tint paint cans and ask what the color was going to be and people would guess the color completely harmless right? Well not for Sherwin they fired this guy because they believed he was using his phone on company time causing business to be slower and they weren’t paying him to make these videos but they did pay him to run the stores. So I don’t really agree with this because technically he was promoting Sherwin Williams’s business in these videos and actually helping them out but the older generations do not understand that and they just push people aside because they don’t believe it is okay. You can say and do a lot of things on social media but that is your private life a business should have no authority to let you go for saying something on your social media. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/tanyachen/col…
