Where social media reigns supreme

Social Media: The Nature of the Net & Regulation

with one comment

The Internet has been circulating the news with particular mention to regulation. Joe Wosik writes an emotionally captivating piece entitled Net Neutrality is one step closer!!! and discusses the issues Canadian Web-surfers face in light of lacking corporate regulation. JoeWo, like many others, point to the government for help.

Social media needs to remain as unbiased as possible—regulation seems like a good idea. JoeWo mentions unfair Internet speeds for accessing sites and political parties being shut down in the Web community. These are valid concerns.

We need to remind ourselves that the Internet is inherently social. People need to be socially responsible—and according to many left-wingers—that includes corporations that control Interweb services. I agree.

How can we continue to produce information with the purpose the internet intends to preserve if regulation does not occur?

Social media is a great tool with incredible social utility, some of which we mention here, here and here. Let’s keep it that way.
