    1. How can you communicate that to others? Why not meme it?

      We should definitely use more memes online (positive memes, though). They never get old. And they clearly tell a message or story. And on top of that, they are humorous enough to brighten up your day.

    2. meme

      The funniest on-point/vivid images you can find online these days. They make our day if we're feeling a bit sad. Just give a try when you're feeling down. It's works! Better than 'laughter' medicine.

    1. self-love.

      This is probably the main reason to why we take selfies today. This is because one of the reasons we take such images, is mostly when were are feeling good about ourselves and are appreciative of what we see on the captured picture (selfie).

    2. selfie-culture

      As much as it appears that selfies are the new cool thing now online, it probably existed in different forms centuries ago. A good example of this is the 'self-portrait' (picture or painting).

    1. Share

      We share everything online and sometimes we share more than we should. We might even do this is realistic or fake ways because we feel more confident and freedom for expression 'online'.

    2. created an environment where it makes more sense to be fake online

      It is obviously easier for people to feel that they can have a fake identity online, since the person on the other side will not even know the truth. This will benefit the 'fake person' with their manipulative means or any other.

    3. bots masquerading as people

      Nowadays, this is even more possible due to the intelligence of our technology. The program is so advanced that they can function on their own without the need of human's supervision.

    1. reality

      It is hard to even think of what reality is anymore. More often than not, it comes down to how we perceive things and nothing more. Then, in other cases, it comes as the one thing everybody agrees on. Then, again, sometimes it comes off as just that thing that can be backed up with data and what we believe to be factual. But when it comes to the internet, which is one of these really works; especially when we are trying to figure out if what we are viewing is real or not?

    2. Facebook

      This is probably one of the best places where you will find all types of information being distributed by its users - from comments and opinion, to facts and copied data from other online sources (which by the way, many users don't even care to cite because to them it is just part of using 'Facebook').

    1. discriminatory

      This really never ends, and it's part of being a human. The problem is that, many of us take certain matters more personal others. We humans discriminate all the time (as a habit or human instinct) the things we don't like because they don't normally relate to us. That's really way to put it, if we think about it. The problem is much complex than just RACE, SKIN COLOR, OR GENDER. But often times it is mostly focused on these. Tell me of one time, when you went shopping and you bought the shoes that you liked for a good price? Why didn't you buy the pair that you didn't like? Ohh, wait! That's a waste of money, right? Funny.... It is more like 'I was discriminating against the other type of shoes'. Yup, hit the nail right on head!

    2. Rhetoric

      Such a huge subject to even think of. After a few college classes in college, you (unless you have had special training on it, or a PHD) still only understand it as "PERSUSION or FORM OF PERSUASION". But deep inside our minds, we also leave those classes with another knowledge of it and that is also much more: a form of communication, expression, thinking, and the list goes on.

    3. algorithmic

      This is one is now used in the internet to take advantage (especially by collecting our data unnoticed and using it for their own profit) of us, the unaware users of programs, websites, softwares, and applications. It's hard not to be a victim of it when using these tools, when many of use (especially newer generations of people) we have become so used to the digital world. This is mainly because for most of us, it is all we've known from a very young age. It's like being given regular cow milk from the age of 2, then being told to stop (replaced with healthier alternatives) at the age of 20. AHA, good luck!

    1. machine intelligence

      Interestingly enough, we saw it coming. All the advances in technology that lead to this much efficiency in technology, were not to be taken lightly. A few decades ago (about 35 years, since the invention of the internet and online networks in 1983) people probably saw the internet as a gift from heavens - one with little or any downsides to it. But now, as it has advanced to such an extreme. with advanced machines engineering, we have learned otherwise. The hacking of sites and networks, viruses and malware, user data surveillance and monitoring, are only a few of the downsides to such heavenly creation. And now, we face the truth: machine intelligence is not to be underestimated! Or the impact on our lives could be negative in years to come. This is because it will only get more intense with the years, as technology further develops.
