I like the first it was just toooo funny. Just really like the way the girl acted in the dream, she's basically on every social app but when the boy starts to do something diffrent she gets all mad, you need to have two person relationship not just one sided. Yes social media definitely takes over our life, that's all people do these days even if they are busy they will still find a way to post a comment on Facebook or a picture on instagram.

I liked the first video better but I enjoyed watching both of them. I thought the first one was funnier and reflective on our society and I thought the first one was interesting. I think social media has become a huge part of all of our lives and I'm sure all of us use at least 3 different networks. I think that it is a good thing in small doses. When it overcomes your life it becomes a bad thing, but when you use it a couple times a day it's okay.

I liked the first video the best. I liked it because it was funny and I really enjoyed it. I also thought It accurately depicted the way social media has taken over our lives especially in young people. I do rink social media has taken over our lives. People are obsessed with being "followed" and documenting their entire lives. I think social media has gotten to big and I feel that's what the 2nd video was trying to tell us. I think it's become so big because that's what we spend most of our time on as a society. I think that it being this big isn't a good thing. I feel like if something were to happen took social media and we would not be able to use It I think that a population would crash and we would not know what to do.

I liked the second one because it was very factual and very interesting. All of the information was true and honestly I believe it. Social media has blown up so much it's actually sad how much we depend in it nowadays. No matter what anyone says, that's the truth; we depend in social media so much it has become a huge part and plays a huge role in our life's today. My opinion is that. I it's not a good thing, were slowly starting to lose the little things that matter and replace them with social media.

I liked the first video better. I thought it was a very honest look at how social media has taken over our lives, and we feel the need to post everything online and constantly be looking at what other people are looking at. We do it non stop, and it affects our real life relationships with people we care about, and we don't see when it frustrates them because we're so busy looking online. When we are with people, most of us spend more time on social media than we do talking to our friend.
Social media takes over my life when I'm at home with nothing to do. When I'm bored, I'm constantly checking twitter, Instagram, Facebook. But when I'm at school or with other people, I don't really care what's going on in the online world at that time. Social media has gotten really big and I don't think it's a good thing at all.

I think that both is the win because it talks about phones and Xbox 360 computer. I think social media doesn't take over me at all.

The first video won for me. I liked how it showed that social media is ruining our REAL relationships. It's so true
I get mad at my boyfriend because he is constantly on twitter. I do believe that social media is taking over. I fell like I'm on the like at least two hours in a day.... I'm probably addicted. I think it's a good thing for all the company's that are excelling because of social media.
I think that people should be focusing on their real relationships then their twitter followers.

I liked the first video better. Nothing annoys me more than hanging out with someone and them bot being able to put their phone down. It's fine when there's nothing going on but if you are having a conversation, you should be fully involved...without your phone.
I don't think social media has taken over my life but it's definitely made an impact. When I'm doing homework and I'm bored, I find myself grabbing my phone periodically. I think social media is a good thing and a bad tthing. I do believe it affects relationships but it does have positive contributions to society, like entertainment and marketing.

I enjoyed both videos. The first video was funnier and showed just how caught up our society is in social media... It also how's how social media gets in the way of our everyday life and relationships. The second video was really interesting with all of the different facts. It's crazy to think how big social media has become. I don't think social media takes over my life. I try not to give in to all the different social media pages because I feel like I would waste too much time. I think social media has gotten too big, although it is a good way for everyone to connect. I think social media is a good idea for people all across the world to connect, but I think if social media is getting in the way of your everyday life and relationships, you need a change.

I think the social media 2013 video one because all of those facts I really didn't know and I think it's amazing how widespread social media has really become. Like some famous people having more twitter followers than some countries? That's ridiculous. I just really found the facts interesting and very relevant.

I do think social media takes over my life. Not as much as some other teenagers but still a lot. I don't o blog or post or tweet about things that happen to me. Usually only when I think of something really funny do I go and put something up. I think social media has gotten too big though. People can easily ruin their lives or become addicted to using the internet dispite how useful it is. It's also very good because it allows people to connect easier when distance is between us and we need to connect quickly and easily and it's great for research and such.

I liked the second video more. The second video made me realize how much the world actually relies on social media. So many facts in that video that made me not want to be obsessed to electronics and social media. I don't have twitter or Facebook but I love Instagram and YouTube.

In my opinion I believe social media does take over our lives. So many people spend their time searching and posting things that don't really matter in life. But yet it really really matters. It has blown way out of proportion. Communication is online, life is online. I don't think it's right.

I think the second video wins. It wins because it had a lot of facts in it that I didn't know. It was very interesting to find out that those stars have more followers on twitter then there is people in all those counties. I never knew these facts until now.

I think social media does take over your life. Millions of people spend hours online on social media. It consumes all our time. I think social media has gotten to big. It is everywhere you go and sometimes I get tired of hearing about all the different social media sites all the time. It would be nice if it wasn't everywhere you go.

I really liked both videos, I think the first one was hilarious but also kind of embarrassing to know that that really is what most of us probably look like. Though I would have to say the second video is the winner in this round. It's crazy to know how big social media really has become in such a short period of time.
I wouldn't say social media has taken over my life, I just believe it is a good way to stay connected with friends, family, and the world as a whole. Since social media I believe I have known about more world issues/news and a lot faster than I ever would have with out it. I don't believe it is a bad thing if it is used properly, or respectfully.

I enjoyed both videos but liked the second better because the first one was something not new to me I already know about people are with their social media sites. The video displayed a really good example of people these days and how people do get annoyed, but I like the second one better because it would talk about facts I didn't know and say many interesting things that I had no idea about. Babies are being names Facebook and twitter ... I think that's crazy! it would have been one of the last place I thought would name their kids that , yet know what those social media sites are about it really goes to show how many places are using all the sites. I personally think it did kinda take over my life at one point. I tried to stay off of them and use them less. I really think it's a bad thing because for example my sister is always on her phone on Instagram or watching vines and she doesn't do a lot around the house or do school work. I know there are many others out there . I hope that in the future it doesn't become worse because I think it will definitely affect peoples lives.

I liked the second one best because I found it really interesting. I liked how they showed all the stats. It really made me think about how much social media has taken over. But I don't think it has taken over my life. I don't spend an enormous amount of time on social media and it's not like I post very often. I think this is a good thing.

Jared Courchene said...

Both videos were good it was a close battle but I think the humorous one wins because it was funny! But the truth in the second video was great.

Social media probably completely controls my life. Social media has gotten to the point that it's dangerously big in a good and bad way, because the positive means of getting information but the negative ways of people "beefing" each other.

I think that the first video won because it was easier to relate to because I am exactly like that, I let social media take over my personal life and thats what I live off of. It was also funnier and more amusing for me to watch

I liked the first video because it was funny who true it is for some people. Lots of people care a lot more about their social media life than their actual life. The second video was also interesting because of all the facts it gave you to think about. But I'd have to choose the first one over the second due to the comedic aspect.

I feel as though social media has changed my life, however I don't think it's taken over my life. I still care about personal interactions and relationships and find I am at my happiest when I experience positive interaction with people. Real people that is. That's not to say I don't check my social media accounts probably more than I should, but I feel like at the end of the day I wouldn't be lost without them.
