The Grand Social Media Experiment. We learn by doing.

Should social media be censored?

Leave a comment

Recently, a classmate had shown me a video she found while researching social media, of what I can only describe as a violent execution. Because those in the video spoke a different language I didn’t understand the context of why they were being executed. I realize that I’ve seen worse on television and in the movies, but this appeared to be real. She wondered if social media should be censored, and I thought, for what? Content or authenticity? And by whom? I do understand that those kinds of things will happen with or without social media, and eventaully the violent imagery will fade and blend in with all the other violent images I’ve seen, but I’ll always remember that ridiculous “Friday” song. ~ BB
