Based on your media log, and the kind of media you use on a regular basis, what are your responsibilities in using media?
By: Shelby Schroeder
My daily use of media mostly includes spending time on the internet, mostly on Facebook and simply browsing other websites. Like every student here when I use a website it is my responsibility to not plagarize material. In the growing technology today it is very easy to steal someone else’s work or idea and get away with it; however I feel I have a moral and ethical obligation not to do this. I also use Facebook a lot, this gives me the power to say or do anything to anyone I want in fact it gives everyone the power to. I think it’s actually quite amazing how instant our communication can be with anyone in the world, and most of the time people use this in a productive or respectful way. Sometimes people get out of hand though and don’t respect other people on social networking sites. Overall, I believe all my media use can be summed up in this quote that I heard when watching Spiderman, “With great power, comes great responsibility.”
