Social media was meant for good, not evil….. but like everything people just can’t help themselves, especially celebrities.
Twitter is one of the largest social media platforms, and although I am not a huge user, it is popular amongst Celebrities with nearly every big name these days having an account. Twitter allows these celebrities not only to update their fans, promote themselves or other brands, show public support for friends and family but also allows them to show their dark side having public fights or feuds with one another . I guess they say all publicity is good, and maybe this is why they do it in a public form, who really knows….
Here are some examples;
If you wanna check out some more feuds and publics fights;
While these feuds and fights are quite humour to bystanders, it does show the ugly side to social media exemplifying nothing is ever going to be used for its soul purpose. Social media was created as a harmless online interactive tool, but now days it may just add fuel to things such as the online bullying fire. I came across these while doing some research for another marketing subject and I thought they were quite funny.. but it got me thinking of the negative impact that social media may have on things such as cyber bullying with people being able to hide behind their keyboards.
I think it is ultimately a good tool when used in the right way such as social interact and marketing…….
What are your thoughts on social media?… good or evil?
