Social Networking and Escapism by Nadeer

  1. 1. Social Networking and Escapism n A deer…
  2. 2. Title <ul><li>Two Northwest Airlines pilots were found to have been distracted by their laptops when they overshot their destination by 150 miles in October. For some, being connected can be the biggest disconnect. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology has drawn us into our interconnected webs, in the office, on the street, on the park bench, to the point that we exist virtually everywhere except in the physical world. </li></ul>.
  3. 3. Escapism  is mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation, as an &quot;escape&quot; from the perceived unpleasant or banal aspects of daily life. It can also be used as a term to define the actions people take to help relieve persisting feelings of depression or general sadness.
  4. 4. <ul><li>Social Networking is the new reality.  Friends multiply daily, and rapidly. Whether we agree with it or not, our kids are involved.  Some directly: they have their own Facebook page.  Others indirectly: they hear their friends and cousins talking about their Facebook page.  Like it or not, we are all affected by the Social Networks.  </li></ul>
  5. 5. Cont. <ul><li>They influence our young people, they entice our old people, they affect our ministries.  Social Networking includes all the various ways of “connecting” or “communicating” via the Internet — including (but not limited to) blogs, forums, chat rooms, and so forth. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>In this movie(Mummy & Me) the girl has a problem with her mother. So she finds a stranger in the cyberspace and she shares her feelings with him. It becomes her only way of survival. She considers this unknown friend as her world. She tries to escape from the real life troubles through chatting with him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhsXPp1w6c0 </li></ul>Eg….
  7. 7. Facebook vs MySpace > MySpace is more likely to connect total strangers, while Facebook tends to connect people with mutual backgrounds. > And both are highly addictive. > The people who frequent these places tend to spend hours going from one friend to another to another. It is the Internet version of bar-hopping.
  8. 8. <ul><li>We have all sorts of virtual friends… but do we have any real ones ? </li></ul><ul><li>The social networking scene is the gathering place of the socially unfulfilled, where people go to  escape  reality, to  escape  friendship </li></ul><ul><li>When we think of real friendship, the kind that involves real people in real time in a real world, we have real duties and obligations that we really must meet. </li></ul><ul><li>Neither Facebook nor MySpace  require  a person to venture beyond the profile </li></ul>
  9. 9. I Have a Question? In a realtime situation how many of us feel comfortable to talk to a facebook friend with whom we share and tag photos? > “We don’t love anybody, but we have thousands of friends.”
  10. 10. > Besides the escapist elements of social networking, these things are also very addictive
  11. 11. <ul><li>Social Networking in Profession </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most recent changes in the industry has been the incorporation of social media in most PR campaigns. </li></ul><ul><li>Unfortunately, many of these new implementations have been at the sacrifice of traditional PR strategy </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual connections, links, and followers have begun to replace the personal relationships that have driven this industry from its inception </li></ul>
