Human Error With Twitter Ban of NY Times Account

Social media has been the source of many discussions. While social media is considered mostly a good thing, there are errors that can occur, even with giants such as Facebook and Twitter. One of the most recent occurrences is the blocking of a NY Times Twitter account as a result of a certain tweet. The account has been restored with an apology to the account holder. Among the statements that were made about the incident is that it is a result of human error. However, this is not the only occurrence of such an incident. Also, other accounts on other social media sites have been frozen and not even restored for no apparent reason other than a post that was perhaps too offensive.

Twitter has recently made an update to the rules of engagement which include punishing of unwanted sexual advances and tweets that promote violence. The reason for the stricter rules of engagement is the result of bad publicity about the blocking of Rose McGowan for calling out Harvey Weinstein for his behavior.

Twitter is not the only site that is bringing forth stricter guidelines, other social media platforms like Google have decided that they are not going to monetize content that is not family friendly. Fortunately, people can still post mature content on their platform. They are just going to have to upload them for free. While this does seem like a new era of a more safer and friendly social internet, this could easily deteriorate into a censorship heavy politically correct environment where people are not allowed to express themselves. Time will tell where social media is going as new rules emerge.

Being Able To Monetize Social Media Accounts

People use social media for almost anything. However, one of the most productive uses for social media is monetization. There are many ways for people to monetize their social media accounts. Many people use advertising in order to monetize their content. However, there are other ways for people to make money from their social media. One of the other common ways for people to make money from their social media account is by referring people to their website. When someone makes a purchase on their site, then the business owner makes money.

 

The trick to bringing in the money is to get enough traffic. One thing that is important to know is that many users are going to visit a website more than once before they decide on buying something from the site. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the site is getting a lot of visits. The good news is that it is easy to get visits from social media when one learns how to use it properly.

 

The best way to use social media is networking and participating in the community. When business owners engage with the community as one of them, then they are more likely to trust the business owner. One issue with a lot of businesses is that they spam ads which actually take away from the experience of social media.

 

The internet is making efforts to make it a little harder for people to monetize. YouTube for example is updating their rules and standards so that users can have a better time on the platform. Also, in order for content to be monetized, it is going to have to be original. After all, earnings have to be honest so that all users can have a fair chance.
