That is crazy! Speaking up constantly when you have nothing to say doesn’t make you relevant.

Bad behavior lives forever on the Internet, so make sure your record is squeaky-clean for when those worker bees inevitably Google you. Some states around the nation have barred companies from forcing their workers to provide access to their social media sites. This is seriously ridiculous to me. I can’t believe that actually happens, but even still that never happened to me and I’ve never see anyone ask for passwords to anything in the military. We were allowed to access social media websites while at work but the time allotted was very specific and it wasn’t much. There are a lot of businesses that do not allow any social media sites at all, which is fine for some people because they can access it on their phone, but there are always that select few that ruin it for everyone else. Some people believe social networking sites offer the ultimate in social equality. When we interact with others online, we have no real way of knowing whether they are white or black, male or female, fat or thin, young or old. Certainly, many people turn to social networking sites to connect with social groups that share their interests and values. Does fulfillment have the same meaning online as it does in the “real world?” I personally believe that some people live their life through social media websites. There are so many different chat rooms for so many different types of interests and people get hooked. I once watched the news about this girl who had several cell phones. She was constantly on facebook and texting her friends’ non-stop, even when they were sitting right next to her. People are seriously getting addicted to social media sites. Online social networking can facilitate identity exploration and fulfill the need for social support, intimacy, and autonomy. Whether constructing their profiles on facebook, creating a video and posting it on YouTube, or talking in chat rooms, teens are constantly creating, recreating, and honing their identities. On the other hand, our children are still trying to figure

out who they are, who they want to become, and working on their values, strengths, and weaknesses. Using the internet and social networking sites appears to reduce loneliness and improve well being for some people. I feel that parents really need to monitor what their child is doing on the internet, like I stated earlier, you never know who you are talking to. It's a world where everything moves fast and changes all the time, where relationships are quickly disposed at the click of a mouse, where you can delete your profile if you don't like it and swap an unacceptable identity in the blink of an eye for one that is more acceptable. People used to the quick pace of online social networking may soon find the real world boring and un- stimulating, potentially leading to more extreme behavior to get that sense. It may be possible

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
