Fake news math reflection

Part 1

I don’t think it really matters too much if a person on social media has a fake account. What can they do cyber bully? If they are does it make a difference that they have a fake account? I don’t think they get any special power by not showing their identity so I think its no big deal. What’s the difference between fake accounts and real accounts on social media anyway, most people don’t know who their “friends” real accounts are either. Why does it matter if they have a fake account that is my thought on this.

Part 2

Do enough people believe this kind of stuff that its worthwhile because I don’t know who would fall for this stuff. Its so easy to tell that it’s fake. If you are missing a family member why would you post it on social media they would most likely have called the cops and then be looking for the person themselves. Once someone sees this what are they going to do, start looking for the person? No most likely they would forget what the person looked like in a day. There is no reason for someone to post a missing person from a terrorist attack on social media especially if they don’t leave a phone number or anything to get back too.  Most people would be to devastated to post anything on social media this stuff is obviously fake and doesn’t make any sense.

part 3

I think it is good for the economy with all the advertisement on social media and I also think it is good that information gets spread so quickly. The only problem is fake information. With everything being spread so quickly it can often change like the game “telephone” when going from place to place and other times it is wrong right of the bat sometimes being posted by someone who does not understand themselves or by someone trying to be wrong. I do think it is good for advertising but thats the thing their is so much advertisement your advertisement is likely to be missed. Sometimes people will just say “hay that place has great pizza check it out” then boom advertisement done for that place and the company didn’t do anything except make good pizza. This is why its good because places that make good food are going to get more customers by making good food and it will not matter about the advertisement. Overall I think that Social Media is a good thing for advertising companies.
