Question of the Day: Write a three paragraph essay about social networking.

Social Networking is communicating with your peers through the internet, or text messaging. Social Networking is used for fan pages, support groups, and community or organizations for school etc. Social networking can have a good and bad affect on your life.
The good affects are you meeting new people, communicationing with them. Social networking allows you to connect with individuals out of the state or even the country. The bad affects are talking to strangers, becoming addicted etc. Social networking affext everyone. Facebook for example was originally for advertising & business purposes. The young adilts turned it into a website to upload pictures, gossip, and meet new friends. This affects lives 24/7.
The way people talk online or write, are completely different from they way they write on paper. Most people use slang online. For example a fraud could start online and something may have been said or written about a person and online wars could start. The online war could continue into the individuals meet up and began a brawl. I completely agree with the article. Social networking has its good and bad affects.

Question of the Day: Why do you think being able to find, evaluate and share information on the Internet (Information Literacy) is important? How will you use information literacy skills now and in the future?

When sharing information online you should always make sure your information is accurate. When information is accurate you should always have the source or sources where you got your information from. Sources help your reader find where you got your information from and help determine if the information is factual or an opinion.

Question of the Day: How do you know if information is factual or an opinion? Describe how you will evaluate your information to determine if it is an actual fact or an opinion?

You know information is actual when it comes from a static or a book. Most of the time you can tell when information is true or false. I evaluate information by finding the publisher and see if their are similar information like the one i found. You can tell when something is made up by the way it is written on a website etc.

Personally I do not stand for the pledge of Allegiance because of my religion. I am Muslim and it restricts me from standing for that. But some people do not stand because they just do not want to. I do not think everyone truly understand the purpose of the pledge but to each is own.
