Diversity In Social Media

Diversity In Social Media

Minorities are learning that their digital footprints and digital
content can keep them from employment, educational
opportunities and military service. I have been blogging for
over 12 years and provided workshops and seminars in digital
content, but it seems many still do not understand what their
digital content is and how it can hurt them. Technology has
changed to where Smart Phones, Laptops, Pads and mini
computers are readily available to access digital environments.
Even in education teachers seem not aware that their content can
cost them their jobs and careers. Technology has opened up doors
that allow families to leave the “hoods” (neighborhoods) and
enter into virtual interactive environments. Social media tools
and social networks are used and visited by millions world-wide
and minorities have a solid digital footprint in the social uses of
technology; the concern is there needs to be more educational

Come To Jesus on Social Media

Come To Jesus On Social Media

Having heard the term on several occasions, I wondered
how this would apply to the use and misuse of Social Media.
We are all accountable in some way from the creation
of our digital footprints, but to what levels? Technology
allows us to "digitally speak" our minds, hearts, share
ideologies, express spirituality, show judgments, even our
biases, racist ideas and philosophical opinions.

The interpreted sins and actions in social media and
accountability in religion and society should be discussed.
In the House of Worship of many religious denominations more
people text, tweet, FB and share content than ever before.
Outside the House of Worship actions run rampant and
detrimental, relationships can be built, friendships established
or destroyed, lives changed and marriages disrupted.
