Trending Social Media Campaign to Track Missing Children go Viral

The Hashtag #WhereAreTheChildren became a trend in the United States during this weekend attracting thousands of tweets. It is a campaign for the plight of more than a thousand missing children who were allegedly handed over to caregivers after arriving alone at the border with Mexico. So far, there is no record of these children.

 

The lack of information on the location of hundreds of undocumented children who came alone to the Mexican border this weekend caused a wave of outrage on social networks, whose users, including celebrities and politicians. The social media campaign spread like a wild fire after reports that indicated that some of the children could have fallen in the hands of drug traffickers.

 

The campaign asks the US government to locate almost 1,500 underage immigrants who were arrested at the border and then allegedly handed over to caretaker families. However, their whereabouts are now unknown. Initially, the minors were placed in the custody of the authorities and handed to caregiver families after they had crossed the border, alone. Most of them came from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

 

According to an official from the Department of Health and Human Services, these children were trying to escape abuse and poverty. Steven Wagner of Children and Families Division told lawmakers that officials discovered that whereabouts of 1,475 children were lost when the Office of Refugee Resettlement made phone calls, in October 2017, to check the condition of these children.

 

Under a law passed by Congress and enacted by then-President George W. Bush in 2008, migrant minors who are not Mexicans, travelling alone and detained by the Border Patrol, are subject to special treatment.

Look Out Facebook, Here Comes Reddit

Everyone has their favorite website. It’s the first thing they typically log into when they fire up their computer or browse on their phone. For the longest time, Facebook has been number one for many people. That’s because people love to boast about their own lives, share pictures, and read about others. Facebook has always been a source of news as well. It seems that times are changing, however, and Facebook might be slipping. Are as many people using them as their main choice of social media? The answer might be no. Ever since recent scandals and data breaches, Facebook has seen their users slipping.

 

According to a thread on Reddit, Facebook has been bumped out of the number three spot as the most popular websites in the United States. They’ve lost their spot to Reddit. The top two spots are still Google and Youtube which make sense. People need to get their information from someplace and they need access to videos. Facebook was the top social media website until Reddit came along.

 

Reddit is considered a form of social media but it’s vastly different from Facebook. Instead of friends connecting, it’s strangers forming friendships. People come together on a thread to talk about a shared interest. Many times, friendship does come from these. They tackle tough topics, they laugh together, and they share their deep thoughts. Reddit, is different, however, in the sense that people can remain anonymous. You never really know for sure who you’re talking on a thread with. It will be interesting to see if Facebook will undergo some changes and revamping to get back that number three spot of most used websites.

Self-Driving Cars Are Changing The World

Car technology has advanced greatly through these past few decades. Since the beginning, cars have taken over our daily lives. Now we have advanced to self driving cars. The real question is should they be required in every single moving vehicle. Imagine being able to sleep while your car drives to you where ever you need to go and make sure you get there safely. The idea sounds great but it could make you feel a little uneasy not being in control of the moving vehicle. The vehicles we have today have amazing technology that allows us to do many things that we wouldn’t be able to do on our own. The top model vehicle of every single car today has many different safety features and sensors. This technology may be convenient, however, it could be dangerous as well. What if it malfunctions? What if it was a false alarm but the car still hit the brakes anyway? The odds are infinite. SciShow talks all about the pros and cons of self driving cars in his vlog, “ Why It’s Taking So Darn Long For Self-Driving Cars To Become A Reality .” Click on the link to view the post. We still have a long way to go before cars start driving themselves safely from point a to point b. We are just beginning the research and experimenting. In the future, when all the cars have the safety feature that allows the car to drive itself, then we would be safer. Now a days, not all cars have these luxuries yet due to many different reasons. Once these generations of cars die out, a new generation can be born.

Popular Types of Social Media Campaigns

People often want to come up with a social media campaign that is going to make waves. In order to manage this, they have to know the types of campaigns that are going to gain popularity. What follows is some of the popular types of social media campaigns.

 

One type of social media campaign that is popular is one that deals with a sensitive issue. For instance, social media campaigns that deal with oppression and injustice are among the most popular of the social media platforms. Campaigns that deal with problems in society are going to get people to jump on. For one thing, they are going to feel something in their conscience that compels them to get on the campaign.

 

Another type of campaign is a very comedic video. This can come in the form of something that has not been seen before. There are videos that are amusing, adorable or just outright weird that gets the attention of users. One of the reasons that this is so effective is that it gets people talking about the video.

 

Among the common themes of campaigns on platforms such as YouTube and Twitter is that it gets people involved in different ways. For instance, a movie studio could get people involved in acting out a scene from the movie that is being promoted like what was done with Black Panther.

 

Having Fun and Keeping Clean With Social Media Platform

While people use social media with many different intentions, one of the best things to do on social media is have fun and keep clean. One of the reasons that this is advisable is that social media platforms like Twitter are starting to crack down on some of the drama that has been rampant in the communities. Therefore, it is important to keep the offensive language down to a minimum and avoid drama. It doesn’t matter what type of social media campaign one is involved in.

 

One thing that is important for people to do is be careful when engaging in topics of passion. For instance, if a poster sees a post that offends him, he should avoid engaging the poster and trying to either reason with him or get back at him. All that can happen is that both parties are going to be found guilty of some kind of offense. The most popular posters are going to be those who avoid drama. At the same time, it does not hurt for the poster to stand his ground if someone is going to attack him. However, it is better to keep it fun and avoid getting dragged into something that is dirty. A profile that is filled with drama is going to cause people to back away from engaging in a discussion or a conversation with him.

Financial Watchdog Funding Anti-Crypto Campaign

Social media is about to get another take on the virtues of cryptocurrencies. There has already been news out that many social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter are banning ads for cryptocurrencies on their platforms. We now have word that a Polish financial watchdog is going to conduct a social media campaign that targets cryptocurrencies as deceptive and not a wise choice as an investment says cointelegraph.com.

 

The point that this group is trying to make is that many people can get caught up in the promises of cryptocurrencies without giving them a hard look to see what they are really all about. That responsibility is on the consumer of this information in general, but some groups are upset that cryptocurrencies are not more fully explained out to those who have not stopped to take a minute to try to understand them.

 

The Central Bank of Poland now says that it used $27,000 to create an anti-crypto campaign. In that campaign the Bank created a YouTube video in which a man describes his experience losing all of his money trying to trade in cryptocurrencies. The video did not indicate in any way that it was sponsored content or a public service announcement. Rather, viewers are just supposed to take the message on face value and learn from it whatever they will.

 

This is an entirely different approach to attacking cryptocurrencies than the industry has ever seen before. It will be interesting to see what the response and reaction is to these kind of moves.
