HUM 176 Midterm Exam Answer each question below . Answers should be approximately 100 words per question. 1. What are the different forms of social media that exist today? Provide examples of different social media and their primary purposes. The different forms of social media that exists today include blogs, social networking sites, microblogging, video sharing and forums. Under each of these different social medias you have facebook, myspace, youtube, twitter and yahoo answers. With each of these you are able to stay in touch with friends and family, know what’s going on with celebrities, watch videos and know what is happening in other countries. If none of these existed I would be lost I don’t think I know what I would do. Right now I don’t have cable so with having blogging sites people can post tragedies that happen without having to watch TV. 2. What are the greatest benefits of social media for individuals and society? The greatest benefit of social media for individuals and society is that you are able to keep up to date with what is going out in the world. With the news I know what happens in other countries. Another thing is we have facebook and I am able to stay in touch with friends and family that live in other states. I have family that doesn’t have long distance, so if I didn’t have the internet I wouldn’t be able to talk to them. Without all sources of social media we would be clueless and not be in touch with our society. 3. What are the greatest problems of social media for individuals and society? The greatest problem of social media is that you may find out things that you didn’t want to know and it can cause problems between a lot of people. People love to gossip and it makes people look bad. There is this show called TMZ that is on TV and they talk about celebrities and half of the stuff they say isn’t true. If people didn’t spread rumors just to make money then we wouldn’t have to worry about any problems with social media. With the society that we live in we have to deal with the faceless environment and it is very hard to know who is real and who is not. 4.
