Default Lessons From Social Media

As the influence of social media increases with each day, social media itself, matures to teach us lessons in survival. Today, it has the power to make or break brands that have risen to apparent immunity. However, what we must learn is never to commit the same mistakes as the others have. On the platform of social media. Here are a few examples:Kenneth Cole, Gilbert Gottfried, Anthony Weiner.

Fortunately, we have these cases to learn from. That's one of the benefits of the power of social media.

One of the benefits so to speak, of Social media is that it forces us to behave in a good and honest manner due to the fact that there is an image to worry about. In your given examples the behaviors displayed shouldn't have been allowed offline either. Yet had it been displayed offline, chances are the amount of people that would of seen it, would have been much less than the amount that saw it online. With Social media being a loud voice it forces people to behave in a positive way or else face the consequences.

That is so true. It is not easy anymore to hide your skeletons with the internet out there. Kudos to you.
