A great and timely article to remind ourselves to make better use of social media in the new year. Thank you Kapkora!

Facebook has become a convenient and efficient mode of communication but most people use it for self-ego and popularity without disseminating a vital information for the benefit of the public.

Some posts on Facebook are for personal glorification and publicity to lure others' attention.

Yet Facebook is a vital component of social media, someone can show professionalism and intelligence through informative posts that can lure public's curiosity and addresses their basic aspirations.

Andrew Keen's latest book is well worth reading:

Very timely piece by Sil and good comment by Philip.

Sil, I fully agree with you that in this new year we have to change our attitudes and do something better in social media.

Media and communication ethics are declining and we don't seemed to respect each other as peers and equals in dignity as human beings.

Healthy comments and constructive criticism is OK but I have seen some people are imposing on the personal lives of other people.

Others are questioning the intellectual ability of another person and that does not make sense at all. We have to learn from and support each other.
