Social Media and Commentary

Old Media:
  • Newspapers.
  • Magazines.
  • Television.
  • Radio.
  • Books.
  • CDs and DVDs.
  • Paper photographs.
  • Paper mail and catalogs.
  • Phone books.

    Social Media includes blogs. All of the above are static. Blogs can be edited, indexed, archived, linked, deleted. Adding photos and videos sparks more interest.

    Social Media thrives on commentary. The best comment I heard all yesterday was this:

    Calling illegal aliens, "undocumented guestworkers" is like calling drug dealers, "unlicensed pharmacists."
