Internet shaming....

Lots of stuff going on this week, so haven't had a minute to blog, so will just share this with you as I catch my breath.  As most of you know, I am a great advocate of social media. I think it can be a great force for good. But, as in all things, it has a dark side, and can be used to cause great harm. Jon Ronson, author of amongst other things Men who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test sums up the phenomenon that is internet shaming in this great TED talk. I recommend you watch it before tweeting again.

Thanks for sharing Chris. Food for thought.

That talk exemplifies completely why I've given up on Twitter.
