ETHICS LITERALLY
HAS TO DO WITH
EVERYTHING
How does this relate to social media? (but actually)
“From clickbait headlines to unfair reviews of products and services, the open nature
of social media presents ethical issues. The public should expect accurate online
information, yet too often news stories, PR materials and other information are
inaccurate. Our media ethics bookshelves are full of important pre-Internet
conclusions that continue to speak to social media accuracy.”
Jeremy Harris Lipschultz | Contributor at HuffingtonPost
Isaacson Professor, University of Nebraska at Omaha
How does this relate to social media? (but actually)
“Social media ethics also is becoming a matter of digital literacy for all citizens. As the
Deseret News recently noted, while younger people have technology skills, the older
generation offers experience, savvy and understanding of important questions: When
do you need to avoid responding? What impact do social media decisions have on
people? What are the effects of common practices? We can conclude this much about
the ethics of social media: When we stray from truth that is based upon solid and
verifiable evidence, it is impossible to defend actions through moral reasoning. Social
media are not different from other media contexts. Tell the truth.”
Jeremy Harris Lipschultz | Contributor at HuffingtonPost
Isaacson Professor, University of Nebraska at Omaha
What did those really long quotes sum up to?
What did those really long quotes sum up to?
1. People want and should receive accurate information on social media.
2. Not only is media literacy even more important with the rise of social media, but
the skills are not being taught as much.
Fake News. It's Your Fault.
Christina Nicholson | TEDxBocaRaton
Examples of Poor Ethical Behavior on Social Media
Example of Poor Ethical Behavior on Social Media
Claim: Actress Jennifer Lawrence said that
the terrorist attacks on 9/11 wouldn't have
happened if Donald Trump hadn't stolen
the election.
Example of Poor Ethical Behavior on Social Media
Result: These words were not spoken by Jennifer
Lawrence. This fictional phrasing was made up out of
whole cloth in order to paint Lawrence, and Hollywood
stars in general, as imbecilic.
The “Capitalist” Facebook page did not provide any
source information about where and when Lawrence
allegedly made this statement. The included photograph
appeared to insinuate that Lawrence did so while talking
to reporters on the red carpet during the premiere of The
Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, but that event
took place in November 2015, approximately a year
before Donald Trump won (stolen or not) the 2016
presidential election.

We all literally just did this for our last
homework assignment when looking for an
interesting article.
There aren’t new rules for social media, we just
need to enforce the existing ones that we use
for all other forms of media.
