Social Media


Media is so complex in the simplest form it is a mix of people telling you how to think and a mix of people telling you how they think. Media tells you what you want to know and hear. I think that media has rapidly grown and most people rely on it to communicate with people. Media is seen through everything, like internet, magazines, newspaper, televisions, and radio. Media surrounds us even if we don’t want it too. Media is great because it lets you communicate with your surroundings, it lets you be aware of what’s going on in the world, and it lets you express yourself in a way you want too.

People who are media literate are people who understand the various types of media there are. For example kids in the 21st century are all media literate, just because they are the technological era. I feel like the kids in this era understand media in such a level that others wouldn’t understand because they use technology on a daily bases. Majority of kids have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, e-mails, Tumblr, and so on. Schools even use similar websites like Schoology and other social networks. They know all these different types of media because it surrounds them every day.

Social media is a big part of media. Social media are apps like Instagram, twitter, and Facebook. Social media is probably one of the biggest forms of media because everyone is connected to social media. Social media is a way of kids, adults and celebrities to interact with each other. Everyone I know has some type of social media. This way we can express ourselves on our accounts and see how others express themselves. It’s all about communicating with people.

In my words that is what media is. It knows the different types of social media and how to use them. It’s communicating with others and keeping up with what goes on in the world. It’s a big communication system that anyone and everyone can use.

Breaking News! France Is Going Down!

Low marriage rates in France are causing decrease in reproduction of kids. Since the decrease of kids the schools are being shut down due to low population of kids, teachers are getting fired, business are collapsing, and because jobs are in such high demand the country is slowly going into depression. Research has proven that there are many causes that affect this dilemma. Scientist proved that the reason that males and females are not reproducing so much is because they are too stinky, they repel one another. Researchers tested that the main reason the French smell so badly is because they consume more snails then they should. The women and men consider every month no shave November therefore it just adds on to their smelliness. Women are becoming so frustrated they started to flee the country. They've moved into neighbor countries like Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. They find men there very attractive. The men in different countries find the French woman’s smell unusual and different therefore it attracts them. Since the French women moved to different countries they must earn a living so their easiest option is to sell themselves, this increases the prostitution rate in Germany by 10%. The Germans government took a notice of this, they passed a new law indicating that if wanting to live in Germany you must take a “how to survive test”, which is basically a boot camp. Since the German men are really strict they tend to be really tough, most women don’t make it out alive. Also since the European men are just alcoholics it just makes it worse because it just influences them to be harsher. The women that flee to other countries like Italy are lucky because the men there are so caring and romantic, and man do they know how to cook. We've interviewed a few women that fled to Italy and they say that they absolutely adore it there. Apparently every day is like a party, the family never leaves, and the food is everlasting. They did say that the mob scene was out of this world, there wasn't a corner you turned on without a mob. So you see the French women don’t want to come back or are killed in boot camp while the French men are suffering in their countries alone. France is slowly decreasing in population and the economy is going to the ground. If a miracle isn't going to happen soon the Germans and Italians are going to break out in war over France.

Big image


The current global generation’s “JFK moment” took place on a Tuesday morning, when the American government went against its own country and hijacked 4 commercial passenger jets and deliberately flew them into major American landmarks. Their sole intent was to show America how powerful they are and that they are not scared to go to any drastic measures. They want the people know that whatever they say goes and that no one should attempt to go against them. Their motives were, and still are to this day serious. The society now sees how Satan like our government can be.

Due to the plane crash, it instigated a “war on terror” this outbreak caused our economy to dramatically fall. Because of this drastic incident our people are now living in terror to our government. Our people are scared to fight back; they finally see what they’re up against. The question is; are they going to take a stand? Or are they going to let the government terrorize them.

The government’s attempt to scare their country was because they wanted them to become stronger. They want our country to be on top and to do this they’re going into severe measurements. They are preparing them for what could happen and what will happen one day in the future. The government wants us to know what were up against. From now on our country is going to live in fear of what stunt the government is going to pull next, and is slowly preparing to deal with this. The country will finally learn how to think on their own and how to deal with serious situations like these.

I recreated this part of history because I wanted to see it from a different perspective/theory. This could actually happen.

1984 Theme Song

The Power of Love- Huey Lewis and The News

In the book 1984 the Party is basically the government. The Party is obsessed with power. Everything they do and say relates to power. They don’t care about love, luxury, fame, they just want the power. This song is talking about the power of love, but when you think about it you can reverse it and think about loving the power. This song has many lyrics that reminded me of the book. For example one of the lines its saying “Make one man weep, make another man sing”, this reminded me of when O’brien would torture Winston to make Winston believe in the party. Winston would weep and O’Brien would be happy because every time Winston cried out for help he was winning. Another line would be “You won't feel nothin' till you feel” which relates to the book because when Winston felt something for Julia, or his hatred toward the party O’brien would torture him, O’brien wanted to suck out every emotion, thought, and feeling out of Winston. That relates to the line because Winston felt something which made him not feel anything in the end. The last lyric that I want to bring up would be “It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes.. But it might just save your life”. This lyric reminded me so much of when Winston was in room101. I interpreted this as O’brien being strong, coming at him suddenly, and being cruel, but in the end it saved Winston from dying.

The power of love is a curious thing

Make a one man weep, make another man sing

Change a hawk to a little white dove

More than a feeling that's the power of love

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream

Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream

Make a bad one good make a wrong one right

Power of love that keeps you home at night

Chorus 1 :

You don't need money, don't take fame

Don't need no credit card to ride this train

It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes

But it might just save your life

That's the power of love

That's the power of love

First time you feel it, it might make you sad

Next time you feel it it might make you mad

But you'll be glad baby when you've found

That's the power makes the world go'round

Chorus 2 :

And it don't take money, don't take fame

Don't need no credit card to ride this train

It's strong and it's sudden it can be cruel sometimes

But it might just save your life

They say that all in love is fair

Yeah, but you don't care

But you know what to do

When it gets hold of you

And with a little help from above

You feel the power of love

You feel the power of love

Can you feel it ?


Chorus 3 :

It don't take money and it don't take fame

Don't need no credit card to ride this train

Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel

You won't feel nothin' till you feel

You feel the power, just the power of love

That's the power, that's the power of love

You feel the power of love

You feel the power of love

Feel the power of love

What I learned!

Social Media is an interesting course. At first I thought it was stupid and pointless, but now when I look back and reflect on the class I realize how much it affected me. In this class we learned how social media works, like twitter and Instagram. These social media apps allow us to have no privacy. Then we learned about the world and different events in the world and how they’re projected to us. Not everything we see and hear is true. Lastly we learned to see the government in a different perspective. Everything we learn in this class is going to stick with us forever. Taking this class gave me a new point of view for the world. This class was definitely different than any of my other classes because it was so independent compared to all the other ones. In this class we had a variety of learning strategies. We read books, we watched movies, we went on the internet, we took notes, and we watched the news. This course was challenging because our teacher pushed us a lot. At first I was kind of mad because this class was so much work, but now looking back it was a lot of work but it was bearably. Also the teacher just posted everything on Schoology making it so we knew what to do and when to turn it in. He was also very tough on our writing and at first I thought it was because he was a writer and maybe it was just his pet peeve but I feel like he really wants us to do well. It kind of feels like he was preparing us for college. He gave us the responsibility to take care of our own work. Honestly this class was great and I loved it, I tell people all the time that it might be a lot of work but it’s definitely worth it. One thing I would change is the beginning of the semester. The social media talks about Facebook and Instagram were good at first but after a while it dragged, I also didn't like the book 1984 because it was so dull. I loved V for Vendetta though, that was probably my favorite park of the class. 1984 wasn’t all too bad after it picked up in the book, and I liked talking about news and events that happened in the world and how social media portrayed it. Really enjoyed this class, It thought me so much and I see everything differently now. I feel like this class can only get better as the years go.
