Introduction

In recent years, many people complain about the weakening relationship between one another in the society and the increasingly indifferent attitude they encounter in their daily life. And some people blame the social media platforms for the weakening relationship among the wide public over years and some scholars even compose writings to criticize the social media platforms, through which they would like to remind the public of the potential advantages of social media platforms. In “Small Change: Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted”, Malcolm Gladwell appears to be somewhat cynical about the likelihood of using media technology for positive change. The same as Malcolm Gladwell, Sherry Turkle as well illustrates the effects of advancing technology on the ties we have to one another in “Alone Together”. Social media platforms seem to really play a part in redefining and revaluing the ties that bind us together, which can be justified by the following three aspects: social media platforms’ separating people from one another in the real life, social media platforms’ increasing the possibility for privacy violation of its users as well as social media platforms’ being a good way to connect people worldwide and let them share their ideas and thoughts.

Social Media Platforms Redefining and Revaluing Human Ties

Firstly, social media tend to separate people from one another in the real life. It may seem that people are highly connected with others online with the help of social media platforms and they are connected with many different people at the same time. People are actually being put in a situation where they are too busy in dealing with a lot of online “friends”. People play with their phones or computers while eating, communicating, walking or before sleeping and they tend to pay attention to their phones or computers as long as they are awake. But what has to be pointed out is that people neglect the ones in their real life. It can be understood in this way that people spend too much time online so that they do not have enough to spend with their beloved ones in the real life. Gladwell states that “The platforms of social media are built around weak ties” (137), which can well indicate that social media platforms may result in weak social ties. In the virtual world created by the social media platforms, people communicate with those that they may never meet in the reality while people’s engaging themselves too much in the virtual world may get themselves separated from their dear ones in the reality in the long run. The same as Gladwell, Turkle as well proposes that “Facebook and Twitter, friending rather than friendship — these are worlds of weak ties” (276), from which Turkle’s idea of social media platforms’ establishing weak ties can be readily detected. The users of social media cannot gain real friendship from social media platforms and the social media platforms can only be regarded as a means for them to kill time. The expression “friending rather than friendship” can directly point out the difference between making friends online and in the real life so as to further specify that making friends online is unable to bring one friendship. The opportunity for people in the virtual world to meet each other is low, let alone making friends with one another. People are unable to get help in their daily life from the ones that they have connected online, which is right why the ties shaped by the social media platforms tend to be weak.

Moreover, social media platforms will make people’s privacy easily violated during their process of using the social media platforms. Gladwell illustrates that “The moment even one protester deviates from the script and responds to provocation, the moral legitimacy of the entire protest is compromised”, which clearly suggests that the social media platforms will result in problems concerning the moral legitimacy. As a matter of fact, a series of social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have their own underlying risk because your privacy and some other information may be exposed in public. The users of the social media platforms seem to have published their personal information in their social profile more or less so that the possibility for their information to be violated will greatly increase. The private information on those social media platforms is public to all the other users of those social media platforms so that it is with great possibility for personal information to be violated. What’s worse, some people may just use the private information of others online to do several unethical or illegal issues, which can be used to be account for the greater and greater incidence of cyber bullying and crimes nowadays. As a result, many users of the social media platforms become the victims of the virtual world. Apart from that, Turkle also puts forward that “We know how easily information can be politically abused; we have the perspective of history (264)”, during which how easy people’s privacy may be violated has been referred to. In this sentence, “how easily information can be politically abused” can, to some degree, imply that people have ever experienced the process of their information’s being politically abused, which can be further confirmed by the later words that “we have the perspective of history”. In this sense, a fair knowledge can be obtained that the privacy protection is a must for the social media platforms to realize if they would like to keep gaining the welcome and support of the vast majority of the public in the due time; otherwise more and more people will become the victims of social media platforms in approaching days. If the privacy violation problem is not solved, it is bound to influence people generations and generations to come.

However, what cannot be denied is that social media platforms are a good way to connect people worldwide and let them share their ideas and thoughts. The social media is so important that it has affected our world past and present and it has influenced various aspects in our life. Gladwell proposes that “social networks are effective at increasing participation -- by lessening the level of motivation that participation requires”, from which we can easily get that social networks can immediately engage in the participation of a large group of people within a short time. In so doing, it is able to greatly increase the efficiency so as to benefit more people. Just as the example of searching for a suitable spinal cord pairing, other instances like searching for a lost old man or a lovely dog can also be known to a large variety of people immediately after publishing some relevant information online. In so doing, more people can contribute their own bit in solving a certain problem in the due time. Besides, social networks can play a great role in delivering information because people from all over the world can be notified of a certain event happening somewhere in the world because they can hear and see from the live media all the time. In the meantime, Turkle mentions that “As the days pass, I am in regular contact with my daughter on Skype and by text” (266), which also shows that the social media is a useful way for people to get connected from one another even though they are not at the same place. In the opposite, the speaker may be unable to get in touch with her daughter if there is no social media platform. There is no doubt that social media has make people’s life convenient to a large extent and people can always get in touch with the ones they would like to contact through the social media. Without social media, people are unable to know the current conditions of others when they are not together even if they are eager to know. In the past, people can only get in touch with others by writing letters, which is really troublesome and time-consuming. But instead, people are able to quickly find the ones they would like to communicate to with the help of social media platforms. It cannot be denied that people have really gained a lot from social media platforms even though they have as well lost a lot because social media platforms have caused some detrimental effects to our weakening relationship with others.

Conclusion

To sum up, a reasonable conclusion can be drawn that social media platforms do play a part in redefining and revaluing the ties that bind us together as long as we take the below three aspects into consideration: social media’s separating people from one another in the real life, social media platforms’ increasing the possibility for privacy violation of its users together with social media platforms’ being a good way to connect people worldwide and let them share their ideas and thoughts. After comparing the benefits and weaknesses of social media platforms, I hold that social media platforms should not be blamed for the weakening relationship between one another in the society and what really matters is how people use the social media platforms. As long as people can use the social media platforms in a wiser way and not overuse and overspend their time in playing it, then people may not fall into the weakness of those social media platforms. Besides, people have to cultivate the awareness to protect their personal information while using social media platforms in order not to be hurt by the violation of private information in the due time. In this way, people can enjoy the convenience and benefits brought by the social media platforms but not being hurt by the potential disadvantages of social media platforms.
