Media and Technology
Have you ever doubted the benefits we can get from technology? Oh, come on, the profits we can get from it are A+. Technology offers us the internet and through the internet we get to communicate easily with other people. So how does this reaching and contacting really work? If I am not mistaken, the word social networking is familiar to you. Well, I guess I’m right, knowing the fact that you’re reading my tumblr blog right now which is considered to be part of the “social internet world”.
Anyway, I would like to share a movie trailer which was already shown in the theaters a year ago. To watch the trailer, you can click the link above. The movie is called Cyberbully (stylized as Cyberbu//y), which revolves around a story of a girl being bullied through the use of the internet, through social networking. Well, I do know that you are aware of the fact that cyber bullying is in every corner of the internet, may it be shallow or deep. The widespread and easy access to rumors and all other kinds of damage to a person’s reputation with the use of social networking is unstoppable. Since we all have the freedom to post, write and comment what we want in the internet, sometimes, we tend to forget how it can affect other’s lives. Well, the movie showed bad effects of social networking sites and how these affected the lives of those who were bullied with the use of it. The internet is not such a bad thing, but if it is used irresponsibly, that’s where the problem comes out.
I was engrossed in watching the trailer, because it gives awareness to people on what is really happening in social sites. I was persuaded to watch the movie myself. This movie is really good and I admit that I really like it. I did not just like the film because of the good actors and actresses who portrayed the roles, but I like it, because it contains a deep message. The motion picture presented their promotion for anti-cyber bullying. Just like what I said earlier, this gives awareness to people. Even if it is only a movie, there is this hidden message they want us to know. It wants us to have a say, do some actions about and put an end to cyber bullying in social networking sites or any other websites on the internet. To sum it all up, this movie, even only with their trailer, is a very strong asset to the movement against cyber bullying.
