Rebecca Charge▸ Task 5: Information Systems


#cserTask5
Option 1. One way of looking at the permanency of social media and how to behave appropriately online is to think: "Would I put it on a billboard?" This was something that stuck with me after hearing it mentioned at a talk at my school. This speaker was a local police liaison officer who shared his experiences dealing with young people who were being bribed in relation to inappropriate content they sent either online or via SMS. I liked the idea and have used it both personally and professionally when posting things online. I also think it would be a great starting point for a unit focused on this topic.

The following are articles I found researching this idea today:

https://www.news-mail.com.au/news/nothing-is-private-on-internet/2718116/ – In this article, Michael Cowling of CQU provides a great analogy comparing social media to billboards.

https://awanaym.org/blog/would-you-post-it-on-a-billboard – this article is quite interesting because involves a real situation where activists published actual posts on bill boards to demonstrate racist attitudes.
