As part of the celebration the 2nd U.N.T.v rescue summit was held with the help of some government organizations like the Philippine National Police ( P.N.P ), Metro Manila Development Authority ( M.M.D.A ) and other organizations.

The celebration was led by our one and only “Mr. Public Service” Daniel Razon. the event was very informative and you can gain knowledge especially in the things we need to know about preparation on calamities. There were many booths that giving information about wound management, how to use the fire extinguisher, earthquake simulator and many more. the said event was also the time that kuya Daniel Razon launched the new and improve U.N.T.V rescue team. The U.N.T.V rescue team is more bigger and better because also include the underwater rescue, but the main attraction was the seminars held for calamities preparedness.

In this modern day, where everyone can easily tell their sentiments about the government or it’s spread a wrong story about someone. Sometimes we use the social media in the wrong way to the extent that it’s destroy someone’s life. The social media is very powerful if we think wisely and use it wisely in our simple click we can change the world.

The Power to Help

    On social media we have the power to help not just only our friends or the person we know but everybody in this world we can help them. YES!!! we can help anybody. Maybe we can’t help them in financial problems but we can help someone in social media by showing support to them.

I can always see on my Facebook account a post of someone that needs help. Example I saw a post one person was lost and many people in the social media help that person by simply sharing his photos in the social media. We always read a story about that.

The Power to Give Information

In social media we have the power to give information. In our times we use the social media as our way to spread the news or information to others. For example the Typhoon Yolanda we were aware that it was a very powerful typhoon because on social media, everyone keep on posting to be ready for that calamity because of that we were prepared in the time that the typhoon was hit us.

The Power to Change the World

We only just a few months a way to elect a new leaders. Social media can be a big factor for a new path we gonna walk. In my last week article I discussed the role of social media in next year election. The social media will be a campaign strategy for politicians so we need to think wisely who we gonna support and give our trust.

Before we share the name of the politicians we gonna support this coming election we need to think very wisely because in our simple like, post and share we can change the future of our country.wiiiiit

2016 Election : A Social Media Election?

In 2008 United States presidential election the social media can be credited for helping the first African American to held the highest office in the U.S. Barrack Obama’s “Yes,we can” campaign on social media was a big factor for his candidacy in 2008.

The Filipinos are one the most active users in the social media. In Facebook alone there are 30 million Filipinos that are using Facebook ( as of 2013 ). and there are 9.5 million Filipinos have their twitter accounts ( as of 2012 ). as of 2015 there estimated 42 million Filipinos that are active in the social media.

In the numbers alone we can say that social media can be a big help for one politician or candidate. What are the benefits of using social media for a political campaign?

REACH : it helps the politician to reach large numbers of voters in a short period of time.

ENGAGEMENT : social media allows the politician to actively engage or interact with their potential voters.

PLATFORMS : it helps the politician to say to his potential voters what he wants to do if he win and what are his plans.

BEHIND THE CAMPAIGN/SCENES : social media allows the voters to see what the candidate as a normal or simple person.

FOLLOWERS TO VOTERS : social media can also help the candidate to turn his followers to voters.

right now there are 52 million registered voters in the country. If the politician maximize the use of social media it can be a big help for his campaign. This coming 2016 election it can be a battle on social media. Post vs post and tweet vs tweet, so choose the candidate you LIKE and SHARE their platforms to others.beastmode

Negative Effects of Mass Media

Everyday we are exposed to media, no matter where we go. I think one of the misconception about media is that media is only a reporters or one who is giving the news. If we say media we can see it anywhere in television, internet, newspapers and even in the advertisements. Mass media have it’s positive and negative effects to our society especially to the youth. For this week I will discuss the negative effects of mass media.

Health Issues

Health issues is one of the negative effect of mass media. Why? because as a youth we can easily influence by the advertisements we see on the television or advertisements in the newspapers. For example if our favorite favorite actor or athlete is advertising a alcoholic beverages as a fan we always want to support our favorite television personality so we will buy or try the product he or she promoting even it’s not good to our health. It also make us curious to a thing we saw in the television like if we see a cigar commercial it makes us curious or interesting especially if it’s the first time we saw that advertisements. Last if we see a junk foods commercial it makes us to try or buy that thing because it’s looks tasty even though it’s not good for our health. In reality not all the things we see and read in television or newspapers is good for us.

Sexuality

On this modern age the youth are very exposed to the “SEX”. Why? because as the technology grows by it’s very easy for them to go to the porn site. It makes them sexually adventurous so they involve in premarital sex. Actually not only in the internet we can see or watch pornographic materials sometimes even in our favorite show it makes us see what is sex. Even in the tabloid there are pornographic materials. In the United States they are very exposed to sex because they are too liberated, we can see that in their television program and even in hthe big screens.

Violence

In our time we always hear, read and see a story about violence. Do you ever think what influence or provoke them to commit a very violent action to another person? I think the solid/concrete reasons for that attitude or actions are what they saw on television like a violent film or action packed television show. One more reason reason is the role playing game or violent online game. Sometimes the player doesn’t know the reality to the virtual world in the point that the player thinks that he is the character to the game and it’s makes him to commit a very violent action against someone.

In the end no matter how influential the mass media are still it’s our choice what action we will make.
