Ethics in using Social Networking Sites



Values Education Theme: “Ethics in using Social Networking Sites (SNS)”

            Our daily lives revolve around technology and most of us can’t imagine going a day without logging on the internet or using our mobile phones. Social networking has become a norm in our society, with websites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and many more holding a unique and vital role in our daily lives. 
            The idea behind social networking is to enable us to hold better contact with friends and family, advertise establishments, artists or products and connect with new people. Social networking has without a doubt contributed to many positive things, but is it also affecting us negatively? 
            Five key issues are at stake in the new social networking media - identity, privacy, ownership and authorship, credibility, and participation. These issues decide the social and ethical responsibilities of the person that using the services of social networking sites.

Seven Tips for Avoiding Ethical Lapses When Using Social Media

  1. Every person that using the SNS should be aware about their rights and moral responsibilities.
  2. Respect the authentication and privacy of those members that are using SNS.
  3. Beware of fake profiles and cautious while responding to friend requests. 
  4. Avoid making false or misleading statements. 
  5. Do not disclose privileged or personal information as you cannot judge your friends.
  6. Be cautious when communicating with unrepresented third parties.
  7. Step cautiously with testimonials, endorsements, and ratings. 

Discussion Question:
                                             
1.     Are youth redefining identity, privacy, ownership, credibility, and participation as they engage with the new digital media? If so, how, why, and with what consequences? 
2.     How much personal information is reasonable to share online? Are young people who share personal experiences online taking steps to protect their own and others’ identities, and are these steps sufficient? 
3.     Who is at fault when an unintended audience can read a young person’s revealing blog or MySpace page?

Values Education Theme, MARRIAGE & FAMILY LIFE

  MARRIAGE & FAMILY LIFE

Marriage is a socially or ritually recognized union or legal contract between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between them, between them and their children, and between them and their in-laws. A warm and loving family is God's plan for each of us.  Everyone wants a good, warm, and loving family, where people care for one another. 

Our social teaching holds that marriage and family life is the basic unit of every society. A society is only as healthy, as stable, as energetic, and as imbued with moral values as its families. A nation can be strong even if it sustains crushing economic and political burdens, so long as its families are strong. 

Healthy marriages and good, stable family life must be the concern of every civic minded person. The life of the religion depends upon its families. The life of the nation depends upon its families. The state knows that it relies upon healthy families as the source of its citizens. Well adjusted, civic-minded, energetic, and educated citizens are all products of good families.

Good marriages and healthy, happy families do not just happen automatically. They must be encouraged and protected from anything that destroys them. When man and woman are sufficiently mature and self-sufficient, a young couple marries and begins a new family. They regard their children as the visible, living fruit of their love.

Discussion Points:
1.     Describe the responsibilities of parenthood and values of sacrifice and understanding in the context of marriage and family life.
2.     What are the dangers to marriage and family life today?
3.     How do we promote good marriages, happy families, and healthy family life?
