In this months blog of the strange and the fascinating world of social media ...
We have ...
Time for parents, teachers and school principals to knowledge up in the face of a social media`s sexual revolution to hit teens and pre teens.
Recent events to hit the news stand, media and TV, report some traumatic social media based events happening in the lives of students that have left those in positions of responsibility somewhat stunned at the outcomes. Social media tends to amplify aspects of Human nature, and elicit a strong reaction in the face of blanket bans on mobile technology which potentially make the problems worse as they drive behaviour underground where it cannot be seen until it emerges as a full blown crisis.
Blanket bans do not work, the best solutions involve facing up to the issues that social media has direct impact on social norms and new norms evolve very quickly. Our Children and students take to social media technolgies with ease and grace as they navigate fluidly between social functions and school work functions, they change gear without any effort where their parents and teachers are left in the dust quietly changing gears as they deal with a more compartmetalised reality schema that involves managing once appearance in a social context. It can be a scary place for naivete, emphasising the need for parents, teachers and role models to knowledge up on the world of social media and high speed interaction and put in place some sensible boundaries and encouraging awareness is the best way to keep the young on their guard and cautious about the increased freedom for communication that is the world of social media.
Social media in this day and age has come with many benefits and some strange side effects which no one seemed to see coming. Not only does social media technology seem to isolate people in the face to face world while simutaneously connecting them, it also banishes privacy in favour of transparency while promoting a hypernormalised version of self, authenticity is now something that needs to be considered. All up it looks like Truth is one of the first casualties of the internet through social media, as traditions are seriously left in the dust - how are the young supposed to know moral from anti-social behaviour - or has our civilization turned into Lord of the Flies in front of our eyes.
Social Media and positive Role Modelling
It is now more than ever essential to present positive role models in the social media context. it is now more imprtant than ever to be aware of how social media works and to consider how a post will be distributed before hitting the post button. Peter is currently advising teachers, parents and principals to be careful when deciding to friend someone who is a student as this could easily lead to serious conflicts of interest. It is advisable in the world of social media to keep as much separation as possible between public and private personas when dealing with social media messaging. There is a lot that can be done to maintain and manage social media connections and friend lists in the settings of social media platforms themselves and it is always worth investigating how it would be best to segment ones communication networks.
