Chaotic Words in Topiary

Chaotic

Centuries have passed yet we will never stop argue about anything. Some will claim they are rightful to what they speak of, and most of us will either agree or disagree with how vast our own opinion divide us all.

Everyone has an idea, an opinion, a say over about anything

It leads to owning our identity to what we can say and not on what we hear others say
We build rapport with people of same belief, faith and opinion
Yet build opposition with people who say otherwise of what we say

People, we as a tiny spec of human race in existence in this universe would never unite in one cause. For all we know we all have our differences. From there we are not meant to unite.

The very reason we have leaders in government, institutions, organizations, and the best example; the church.
They lead us to unite for whatever cause they see fit.

Yet today we see fit that whatever we believe is our right, no one can stop us nor let anyone else tell us otherwise we cannot believe what we believe. What ‘you’ as an individual can believe whatever you want.

In today’s generation, everything is a right, a freedom and no one can be an objection of any form for that matter. It is undeniably a great proof that maybe this generation is extremely sensitive over anything; politics, religion, gender, race etc.

Centuries have passed yet we will never stop argue about anything. Some will claim they are rightful to what they speak of, and most of us will either agree or disagree with how vast our own opinion divide us all.

From past generations to our generation today what have changed? A lot. Yet things seem to be a de ja vu, wherever you look there will always be something to argue about, telling who’s right and who’s wrong. A very dawning proof that as human race fill this beautiful planet we are all bound to disagree about anything.

What am I saying here? Who am I to question such trait we all possess? I am just a random person who is frustrated to look on my social media timeline without seeing a lot of arguments over many things.

How are we going to unite as human race without looking out for your own good? Is there a chance we all can unite and say, “finally, world peace.”

    -New Media provides us many things like, news, trivia, ideas, beliefs and etc. New media helps the people believe in their own ideas with freedom without thinking even if it is wrong because you can find a believer same as you.

    -Opinion is a powerful thing in this generation because it can control things that we never wanted to do. For example my friend gave an opinion about me and i got offended, Maybe I will hurt him. Opinions are more important than Facts because facts are not always true. In this generation opinion is important because if your opinion is somehow encrypted it can influence other people and make them believe that it is the truth, It can make people think, this is where we base our actions. and lastly Opinion can make or break a person.

    -New media is now becoming also as new platform in todays generation. And many opinions are now in new media. Like this website using the new media for blogging. Opinions are now can easily posted in social media so I think thats the reason why opinion is powerful. Because in todays generation social media is a great influencer. For example someone posted his opinion about the brawl fight thing happened in Fiba world Cup between Gilas Pilipinas and Australia, some netizen will favor in that opinion even if he/she did not know the whole story between those teams how the fight started. And now opinion is powerful because of social media, because people are now depending on social media.

    In our generation today, our freedom to express our opinions are something we all want to have. We want to say all the things on our mind with no one criticizing us about it. We want to tell what’s on our mind about many issues, in politics, in religion, gender, about our cultures, about what we want and we don’t want without anyone judging us. New Media gives us that, a freedom to express our opinions.

    New Media gives us everything. We can now share our opinions that is powerful thing in today’s generation. We can tell everything on our mind about what we’ve seen in social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and many more. We can easily triggered by the social issues that are posted in social medias and we can’t help but to share what we know and our opinion about that certain topic.

    Expressing our opinions are important as long as we don’t hurt anyone. Just like what the author said, we are all different. There’s no right or wrong answer because we think differently, react differently and we have different say about anything. It is our freedom, that we are talking about anyway.

    Just love, not hate.

  4. Ramelo, Kate S. ACT 181
    – New Media is the generation’s new hobby of interactions with other people across the world, because of this modern form of technology that allows people to share everything they want without minding who will affect it. The freedom of expressing your emotions and activities to other people, it is what the new media is giving us. Forget being realistic. Social media is a display of our life and a general reflection of our persona, so of course you’re inclined to make it seem as perfect as possible. It encourages people to share every minute detail of their lives and every fleeting opinion they form. We feel empowered by likes and comments and despair when those interactions are lacking. We’ve become isolated behind screens, with the majority of our communication occurring online instead of face-to-face. We must be responsible in every actions that we make, know the limitations and capabilities when it comes to social media. Not all of the things we do should be posted and shared, we should have privacy.

  5. Merry Grace Barrientos ACT 181
    New media is a big part of our society now. New media helps us to communicate to others and we can freely share our ideas and thoughts about something. Opinion is a powerful thing in this generation because we express the thoughts that we want to say. Opinion is not right nor wrong because it’s your idea and comment about something. Sometimes expressing your opinion can cause misunderstanding and can hurt other people.

  6. Dianne C. Aguilar Act181
    New media is like something the author wouldn’t want to happen. Based on his thoughts thru blog, it causes the netizens or the Filipinos to argue and object about something. Nowadays, most of us doesn’t accept criticism. We always want to be right and that right we want to believe in is something we will fight for. We’ll do everything to make people believe that idea too, but in reality, we cannot please everyone. We have our own beliefs and perspective in life, although new media really helps our generation today. Like what the author of the blog said, “We build rapport with people of same belief, faith and opinion. Yet build opposition with people who say otherwise of what we say”. Lets move to opinion, for some, it is a great factor in their lives and for the others, it is no big deal. In this generation, we give importance to every opinion we hear and say. Why? Because the people around us has a big impact in our lives. In today’s generation, we always want to be in. We are being influenced by the people or the culture around us thats why I think opinion is extremely important nowadays.

  7. Leyvi Ann Soriano ACT185

    – From the eyes of the author, New Media have become a platform for people to express their thoughts out, to say whatever they are believing. It is a way to expresa their freedom. Also it is a platform that the new generation use to stand to what they are believing, to fight for what they know what is right. It is becoming a tool for the people to fight and argue and for all of us to lose unity.

    – Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation is because it stand for our voices. It stand for our freedom to speak and stand for our rights. It is a way to speak our thoughts out.

  8. Patricia Deguzman ACT 181

    New media is a grounds to share and express our thoughts or opinions, ideas, feelings and emotion. It lets us give our own identity through our posts, shares etc. and with new media it also became a way to contradict someone’s opinion. If you’re really updated on the internet, social media and the like you can see some bandwagon wherein those people keep on sharing their opinion as if they knew everything about it. In fact without knowing, the opinions could greatly affect someone. For example, most netizens keep on posting comments with their opinions to the point they almost bash the person or keep on commenting just to look smart without having any idea about it. Through this kind of action, we are not aware what would the person involved feel. We might hurt or offend them, always think before we click.

    Truly, that our generation today from the past generation possesses a big difference though the others still remain the same. In our generation where new media came, there are a lot of things that change, through this, we give people the access to express and give their different opinions, from their culuture, beliefs, gender, ect. New media give a big factor to our lives, it can be a good and a bad thing, it is because expressing your opinions or expressing what you believe through the new media like, print media (news papers), social media (facebook, twitter, ect), Broadcast media (Radio) means there are a lot of people who will read or hear this and we all know that we can’t avoid people to give an opinion about our opinion, there will always be people who are a pro’s and against’s in you. Maybe it is really hard to have a peace because of our differences.

  10. Jarvy Mckenzie S. Pineda
    ACT 181
    New media is a way to say your own opinion through technologies like posting on facebook, writing a blog and etc. And todays generation there’s a lot of people using it.

    Opinion is a thing that you have a freedom to say whatever you wanted. In todays generation every one’s opinion is important whether it is right or wrong. People often based of others opinion in some situation without knowing the whole thing or the truth and because of some opinions some people become conscious about theirselves. And yes opinion is a powerful thing because one’s opinion is strongly influencing us.

  11. Tero, Axel Jan D. : New Media gives us the power to overcome any problem that we don’t know to solve nor to answer, reading the works of other, pursuing your needs. New media is often characterized as highly interactive digital technology. New media is “very easily processed, stored, transformed, retrieved, hyper-linked and, perhaps most radical of all, easily searched for and accessed. New media is changing the way people across the world are entertained and consume information. As the writer of this post show that our opinions is related to what we post here in Social Media or should we say the New Media, on our generation everything is free, we can post, we can influence, we can share our thoughts, and even communicate. Opinion of other’s that can be seen here in new media has a power why? because it can influence other people to explore new things like what we are experiencing right now, some of this opinion can also cause harm due to its content, most of those who committed suicide is maybe influenced by other’s opinion that suicide can set you free from any problems that you may face in your life. The opinions of netizens here in new media can influence you to do something good nor bad.

  12. GLAIZA MARIE GANGAN ACT185

    From the eyes of the author, new media is now used as a way for us people to express ourselves, our opinions, our own thoughts, feelings and ideas. These opinions, thoughts and ideas are all extensions of you and your personality as an individual. New media helps us to portray ourselves, our interest, our views and it helps us to show what kind of people we are. In today’s generation, it is now easy for us to express ourselves in social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogs and many more, which offers a platform for us to be ourselves and to have an audience for all of our opinions and ideas. In new media, people feel that they have a greater sense of freedom of speech and expression. But in using the new media, there is also a possibility for some people to argue about each other’s different opinions about anything because new media also changed the way we behave and communicate. It can also be a cause for us to lose our unity and understanding of our differences.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because it is our way to voice out what we think is right and just. Opinion today is not just an opinion, it can also bring and create great impact and influence in our society.

    If I were to tell what I have understand based from what the author’s point of view regarding how the world now with New Media, all that I understand is that it’s chaotic.Almost everyone is in their never ending arguments. That generations today are more sensitive over something and New media took a huge role in making a groundfloor for these to happen.

    Unison is nowhere to be found when everyone is busy telling their own opinions. Claiming their rights and freedom to let the world know what is in their mind and what they believe is right for them. No one can stop them in todays generation that is why New media instead of bringing or uniting us towards peace it rather gives a room for open forums and brainstorming of ideas of each persons and argue with what they believe is right for them. And so the never ending arguments goes on.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation. Either big or small, it matters. It brings new ideas or contradict old or present thoughts everyone has and could either build a new theories when mixed with the others. Opinions are not to be ignored because it could be of any help (or not? ) in making decisions or considering steps to make a decision. It should be given attention and hear or take a look on its content. It could either make or break a situation or an issue. Just like the old saying”tongues are the sharpest weapon. It could either make or brake a person”. Once our tongues move and our mouth spit words and phrases, it is now our opinions and with that we should be firm and responsible for it.

    Opinions are powerful, yes it is and everyone has their own that is why there are clashes of ideas and arguments exists. But we have to put in our mind that it is only “give and take”. You have your own opinion. You tell it, they heard or know it now if your done with yours then its time to listen t the others. Internalizw their own opinion based on their own standpoint which could either be against your belief or claim but dont stop them. Let them finish what they are saying. Dont over react if they have an opposite mindset than yours. Respect is the best way to calmly finish an argument and to little by little achieve peace. We cannot achieve it if we were not the person to humbly accept wrongs and corrections. Chaos will prevail if we insist on pushing the thing we want yet without solid proofs to support our claims. If we know that were not able to show evidences to argue anymore dont add up or make stories, be silent for a while compose a god thought in mind to add up on your opinion. In the end, always remember that if your opinion matters so does his too.

    It is a human right to voice out what we feel and New Media brings greater height to our freedon of speech. New Media is growing rapidly throughout the world and it changes the way people interact with each other by offering more convenience in terms of communication. However, as described by the author, New Media has really an adverse effect on todays social interaction because everyone wants to be heard and that sometimes leads to misconception. In our modern generation, A lot of people is using platforms in new media just to bash, show hatred and spread fake news, they’re using the new media the wrong way it should be and losing the real purpose of it.

    One of the product of the interaction from New Media is our powerful opinions. Opinion that has the ability to influence, revise our beliefs, change our behavior and as a result of our social interaction. Opinion plays a prominent role in our generation by spreading ideas for more innovations and better change.

  15. Aguirre, Glyza Marie S. ACT181
    From the author’s perspective, in today’s time new media are used by people to give their own opinions, to fight for their ideas of what is right or wrong. To post their own reactions or comments from different issues. New media became a platform of people in the world, in expressing their freedom to speak. It also became a place for arguing, arguments became rampant because many people want to prove their ideas or opinions.
    Opinion was a powerful thing in today’s generation, why? Because of different opinions came from different people, you can gain ideas and their own reactions about an issue. From opinions you will find out the people who agree or disagree. Posting you reactions or opinions can inform others of what you feel and hear you side. Today’s generation value opinions, for them to know what’s in or out. Opinions are tools for fighting and bringing arguments about different issues. Opinions brings battle of arguments of different people.

    New Media can is the new hobby of this generation. With the help of technology you can say what you want without realizing you can hurt other people by your post or shared post. That’s why New media is sometimes chaotic if you do it in a wrong way

  17. ACUZAR, JOYCE C.
    ACT 181

    New media is often characterized as highly interactive digital technology. It is known for its ability to involve the audience. From the eyes of the author or based on his view, the world with new media is chaotic because of different ideas, opinions, and beliefs about anything, people tend to argue. Everyone of us has the right and freedom to express our opinions and ideas about something. In today’s generation, we use social media in creating, sharing, and exchanging information. But because of our differences and we have our own beliefs, there is always an argument over many things.

    In today’s generation, opinion is such a powerful thing. Expressing our own opinion gives an insight into how we perceive the world around us. When we share our own opinion, other people will know our side and they will become aware of it. Also, our opinion can contribute to the change and improvement in our society. We should always remember that it is very important to respect other people’s opinion. We come from different backgrounds and we believe in different viewpoints.

  18. Shaina Mae C. Elnar
    ACT185

    Base from the article, new media as reflected on the author’s blog is a medium to express people’s own beliefs and opinions. It is used to let other people hear a person’s side or story, to let others see what a certain person sees. However, sharing one’s opinions and beliefs somehow leads to arguments and chaos.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because showing and expressing it is very easy which sometimes become the cause of misunderstandings. This generation with easy access to new media can reach even the corners of the Earth. Therefore opinions shared using new media can reach all parts of the universe so those people with different views than the one who stated an opinion will create an argument depending his own side. Opinions now a days is very powerful as it can make or break the social relationships of people.

  19. the new media defines it self through online network which acquires the power of internet or sometimes without the internet when sending/receiving texts on mobile phone, where the audience could make their opinions directly into form of feedbacks, comments or suggestions, that they are free to do things they want. and also the new media allow us to share, our thoughts and comment, react to the other post, and also on new media help us to be updated to trending news and topics. and also help us to make our lives updates on everything that happen to our society.

  20. WHY IS OPINION SUCH A POWERFUL THING IN TODAY’S GENERATION?
    (Vanessa Sanchez – ACT185)
    In today’s generation, people tend to value more what other people’s opinion about them, that could result to good or bad effect depending on the situation. Since people are now dependent to social media, where everyone has the freedom to express their selves, sometimes people forgets to compose their opinion in a nice way without hurting someone. It happens most of the time in the teenagers.
    It only takes a few hurtful words to deeply wound someone’s ego and feelings, yet what people prioritize more is their freedom to give opinion. This could lead to misunderstanding, or worst the reason to start a fight from someone whose against you’re belief or idea.
    Also, due to many resources that people now can go to whenever they need anything, it becomes difficult to guess whose side is talking the truth and whose side is saying gibberish things, that’s why people need to analyze first what they read before they act upon it.

  21. LUCAS, KEZIA DOROTHY D.
    ACT185

    *How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?

    The world, as it is today, is really chaotic. Just like the title of the blog suggests. The author sees the world with new media as a place full of arguments. People never stop disagreeing with everything they see that doesn’t fit their own standards. Everything just repeats, even if this is the new generation, the disputes over things doesn’t stop. This is the reality of the world. Everyone will always have a say on something without even knowing the truth behind the post that they have seen.

    *Why is opinion such a powerful thing in today’s generation?

    Opinions are deemed as people’s right. Everybody can say what they want, because they have the right to say so. It is a powerful thing because it can affect someone. As today’s society is run by people’s opinion, that is why it can make or break a person.

  22. Lourdes L. Bilaya (ACT 181)
    New media are the forms of media that can be seen through internet. When we say new media, first things comes in our mind are the social medias, blogs, websites, video games and such. Telephone, computers, smartphones etc is also considered as new media. In our generation today, people around the world most specially the millennials are number one users of new media. For example, used of different social medias such facebook, snapchat, twitter, instagram, youtube and the like, it becomes their way to express themselves through blogs, videos, pictures, posting etc. With these, it let people to have freedom to do what they want. New media is now considered as part of everyone’s life and that is used daily. Some used social media as their business tool, like online selling because it becomes more easier to sell products through online. Some elders, use social media in order to get some information and news quickly instead of buying newspaper. Some used social media as their communication, because they can stay connected to their love ones, families who lives far away, friends and others. It become easier for people to communicate with each others, by sending pictures and videos (video chat) through the social networking. This has made long distances between people, shorter. To make it short, people nowadays are engaged with the usage of technologies and medias because it is very accessible , convenient, and also useful all the time, however people should always know that everything needs limits.

  23. Hershey E. Silva, ACT185- As technology invades the world, it really makes our life easier, comfortable and advance. Whereas it is a platform where we can gain new ideas, knowledge and any other life related aspects. A new platform to “give and take”. You can both exchange ideas. It’s like a social media reaction that you can like it, hate it nor love it. Sharing particular information can reach people in a wide range. However, new media is one cause why we people misunderstood each other. Because nowadays, as per experts says, social media is like a contagious disease where if you share a hoax post it can affect other people. How about the people who is not aware of that particular post and started sharing it? He or she might believe that the “shared hoax post” is true and reliable.
    As a student, we must be keen observer and study first the given situation before spreading it. Because we cannot say that it can harm you nor other people or both. We must not use this platform to say negative things to other people. Yes, we have a freedom of speech but we must always remember not to abuse this. Because in the end, we will be all the victim. We can’t blame other people. Start the positivity and accuracy of using this. Start from yourself up to the others.
    As they say, think before you click. Act now. Not later, nor tomorrow.

  24. Aira Michaela M. Berog ACT185
    New media gives us so much benefits. Because of new media we can easily communicate to our relatives who are far from us, with new media we can easily find someone who is missing, with new media we can find information easier and faster, with new media we can easily share our own thoughts, ideas, opinions, experiences, learning, information, news, happenings. But the thing is, with new media it lessen the opportunity to meet our relatives in face to face cause there is already a media, what is the need of meeting in person it will be hassle. With new media the truths became far from us. It is now hard to know what is true and what is not. With new media, sharing your thoughts, ideas, opinions, experiences, learning, information, news, happenings will be risky. People might get it and used it for their personal issues. In today’s world. We are now exposed in what is happening in the world and the world is also exposed to us.

  25. Jeryleen C. Villas ACT-185

    Upon reading the selection, it can be inferred that the writer seems to see new media as a way to express and prevail. The author probably wants to point out that through the use of the latest trends in media nowadays people can speak out easier but looking in the negative side, new media has been also a way to produce arguments and lots of civil and national commotions. It is because of people’s bunch of opinions bunches of misconceptions are also prone. Setting all the negativeness aside, opinions are important on one’s living considerably it is also one of the greatest right that everyone must have. We all have to speak up most specially to this present world that is full of judgments, our opinions is a must as long as we keep it together with responsibility.

  26. VANESSA SANCHEZ – ACT185
    How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?
    The author sees the world in the New Media as very chaotic, due to non-stop arguments from different people who have different beliefs, ideas, culture and many more.

    WHY IS OPINION SUCH A POWERFUL THING IN TODAY’S GENERATION?
    In today’s generation, people tend to value more what other people’s opinion about them, that could result to good or bad effect depending on the situation.

  27. Coratibo, Elaiza Mae C. ACT185 –

    New media is a form of electronic communication, it may be through websites and websites helps a person to express his/her ideas and thoughts on a certain topic. Based on the idea of the author, new media helps to share and express ideas, opinions, and thoughts. When a person have the same idea with others, it builds a friendly relationship between them, and it might be caused of unity. However, it is opposition if a person have opposite ideas.
    Opinions are powerful nowadays because it could influence and encourage other people. It may also expand the knowledge or information. However, when opinions are already beyond its limit, it may hurt people’s feelings and it may disseminate wrong information.

  28. Anna Shaina Kamille V. Solas
    ACT 181
    As what I have observe, A world with new media shown from the eyes of the author was obviously a “chaotic world”. Many individuals involved in the circle of the world seems to be getting aggressive when they are expressing their opinions, it feels like they are filled with madness not knowing on how to voice out their beliefs or understandings in a particular things in a good manner. What matters to them is that they are right, they do not want to count their self as a wrong one. Especially now in our new era, the new generations or the ‘youth’ are uncontrollably being eaten by the advanced technologies, they are not careful with expressing their feelings, they are posting about things that are not necessary, they do not care with what the other people would say with their unnecessary actions or words. And additional to that, youth today only believe on what they want to believe and they only hear things coming from them, they are also not aware that they are being boastful. They do not consider others’ points. I thought the aim of globalization is to reduce the chaos in the world, but why it feels like it’s just boosting the chaos from bad to worst. I’m feeling a bit pity with the new generation today, it’s so pathetic. I know that expressing our own opinion, suggestions and even ideas are important but let us do not only consider our own opinion, let’s hear out what the others would say and let us give it a consideration, it is not bad after all. If your opinion is right or wrong, it does not make sense and it is not important. Voicing out our opinions is very necessary because we are giving ourself a chance to express our emotions, feelings and ideas. But before we express our opinion, let us pause and think about how easily we can express it without harming others. We must be careful with our opinions because it will reflect to us as a person or as an individual.

  29. Rouvic E. arensol ACT185

    How is the world with new media shown from the eyes of the author?

    New media most commonly refers to content available on demand through the internet. I think the authos think/saw the world with New media as a mess, disapointment, argument and sensitive. Becausr new media changed the world a lot, he/she thinks that it seems a de ja vu, he/frustrated with social media with the posts that seems to have something to argue on which or who is telling the right and wrong. New media is like a distractions or barrier to unite all the people but new media also can use it to have a unity, solidarity or camaraderie with each other but people seems not seeing this and instead used social media in a wrong way.

    Why is opinion such a powetful thing in today’s generation?

    It’s because in our generation today many people are sensitive or overreacting to something like politics, religion, and specially gender and races. And opinion is the start of war or argument which lead to destroying of ones relationship. For example, a person posted a sh*t post with the idol of other people let say kpop idols on facebook or twitter but this person don’t one any hates but if a person who’s idol are kpop he/she don’t care if that’s a joke or not because this person insulting her/his idol so he/she comment something and other’s are also commenting something and that’s it, the war of idols begin. Did you see my point? Opinion is very powerful. Many people are not agreeing with each other because we are all different, different in gender, identity, personality, opion, skin color, cultures and traditions, beliefs and etc. And because we/i don’t have any rights to object someones opinion because we live in a democratic country, they have the freedom to speech but sometimes this freedom is abused by many people. They do not used it in a nice and right way. In addition not only an opinion is a powerful but the words and content itself.

  30. De Paz, Ella Mae R. ACT185 – From the eyes of the author, New media is the mirror of our society. It helps us to communicate with other people and to express our feelings, emotions, ideas without juding us. It give us everything we need. But in over all thinking it is dangerous in today’s generation because of those powerful opinions that can cause misunderstanding.

    – Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because it is our way to speak out and stand out for what we believing for. There’s no right and wrong opinions as long as we know our limitation if it is still merit to voice out.

  31. SAPLAGIO, Aaron Paul
    As the Author said “Every one has an idea, an opinion, a say over about anything” He/She is already telling us that we millennial has the freedom to express our opinions,ideas and our thoughts about a certain topic by using the new media. He/she also said that as we express ourselves there is a difference on how we approach those who support and those who oppose us. And it’s because we only beilieve that our opinion is right and we don’t give a damn thing about those who criticize us. But the bad thing is that using the new media also affects our unity and it’s because we people isn’t that considerate enough to listen and respect other’s opinions that may lead us on misunderstanding and argument with them.

    – Every people has the right to share his/her opinion and it’s because it expresses on what kind of person he/she is. Our opinion makes other people understand how we feel about a certain thing. It is consider as a powerful thing because a person’s opinion may lead on influencing other people’s belief which will eventually make them support the thing that you were believing of.

  32. Mendones, Rizza ACT185 – According to the author, she hardly believes that time will come when we’ll truly felt the essence of the word; world peace. She asserted that being chaotic is just the nature of the world because we humans has it’s own difference with each other and were all not perfect as well.
    The argument will never end as long as we fight for what we believe and unity will just be an ideal state because of our differences and freewill.

  33. Adriel Establecida ACT 181 – New Media is a way for us to express our feelings and emotions. It is also a way for giving an opinion or something we want to say. Opinion is a big thing, it can affect the people you were giving opinion. Sometimes its good or sometimes is bad. It can cause misunderstanding even if you have no intention to hurt that persons feeling. As a active user of the internet you need to “think before you click” because one mistake can ruin your life.

  34. Ma. Erika D. Danao
    ACT181

    New media seems like brought us a lot of disadvantages although it is helpful in some different ways. The author was trying to portray what was the world today. Generation today was a toxic one, we, the millennials never unite with one thing. Each and everyone of us is always trying to speak for ourselves but never for others. Opinions are always being said and people have their freedom. Unity within us was hard to see, all because of that freedom of ours.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing today because it allows all the people in the world to have the right to say what they wanted to say. Their opinion matters everywhere, politics, gender discrimination, religion or whatever issues that may come up, the opinion of everyone is always stated. Comments and rants of them are scattered within the new media. To sum it all up, the opinions of each netizens matter to the point that it affects everything. The issues will get bigger and bigger until peace is nowhere to be found. All of us should be disciplined and taught how or when is the right time to say our so called “opinions”.

  35. VERGARA, LEILANIE M. ACT 181
    *From the title of the article down to its content, the author seems to have perceived how the New Media became the basis of every tiny little things in this world. The world became opinionated where everybody is right and HAVE the right to say about anything. It became our habit to argue there, argue here and argue everywhere because we are given the freedom to express our thoughts but suddenly, it created blocks and gap between human races and humanity. The people in this world have different beliefs in which these beliefs contradicts other beliefs and as a result, it creates a chaotic world.
    *Opinion is a powerful thing in this generation because it expresses the beliefs of each people and enables a person to say what he think is right or what he think is can be both beneficial and true. Now that social medias have arrived and popularized, users of these have all the say to comment about something whether it is a hate or a praise comment. Everything now is opinionated. This new generation is successful in bringing a freedom to express. Despite of the fact that opinions are all acceptable, somehow because of the new generation minds, it only creates conflict between people. Opinion divides us. We can either be an against or in favorable. But nevertheless, it is important that we respect each other’s opinion especially now that we are in a generation where majority of the people always have the say over things.

  36. Santos,Maecy Chandy G. ACT 181

    In this generation, new media is the trend not just for us youth but also for the adults. This new media helps us to express our own ideas, beliefs, and opinions freely by the use of blogging or posting in different sites. Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because it helps us to weigh what’s right from wrong. It helps us to understand different point of views and perspectives of everyone. It also helps us to decide easily. For example, when we’re buying clothes, some of us get the opinion of the person who’s with us and ask them if it fits us good or not but the decision to buy that clothes is still with us. We must know that opinion is not based on facts, it’s just a judgment that depends on us if we will believe or not.

  37. Christian Paul P. Vera -ACT 185 Contemp. World
    From the beginning, the author was mentioning or tackling about this generation where in it was said there that everthing is right and I think he/she was talking about the new media like blogs, newspaper, and social media, because in todays generation, you can even say what u want using this things, you can express, argue, and disagree with every posts or opinions you might be seeing and getting with use of this this things. The new media are very much seen on the eyes of the author. Lastly he/she also mentioned that who he is (a random person only that is frustrated to look on his social media w/out seeing a lot of arguments over many things) to questions such trait we all posses.
    Opinion is a very powerful thing not just in todays generation but even in some generations that existed a long time ago or in short, all the time, opinion is a very poweful thing because this thing is the separator of all of the people in this world. We all know that all of us has a lot of opinions and beliefs that we cannot force to give to all of the people living in this world. Opinion is a very powerful thing also because all of our different opinions are all being used in our daily lives, to make friends, and to make decisions. Also in faith, thats why we do have different religions and races.

  38. Ma. Ana Jane Alberto (ACT185)
    New Media is the 21st century way in expressing thoughts or opinions. It is a two-way communication wherein netizen can react or opposed to your opinion. Opinion is a powerful thing in today’s generation because it can control or affect the beliefs of other people and it can also influence them. Sometimes opinions expressed in social media are disagreeable and might cause endless argument.

  39. Nicole D. Fernandez
    Act181

    New Media is today’s platform of information, sharing learnings, comments, and opinion. It is a two way communication between you and all the people. It is our mediun of communication which we give our opinions and share our learnings. New Media might be a tool to inform or to be a cause of an argument.

    Expressing our feelings is commonly see in this platform. All the people may know your side And vice versa. But we must remember that this media is made for us to communicate and be connectedto each other. So we must know the proper way way of using it. The polite way of arguing with those kind of things that matters to us. We must be open and flexible to all this information and opinions. And also we must think before we do something.

  40. Angara, Gimer C. ACT181
    The author view New media as a medium of message and opinion of people ,where we share our own thoughts about different aspect and topics, it is also became a main source of argument ,
    Because of the difference between our opions ,but each opion has their own rights because there are no wrong, opion is a persons own thought, it is what he/she believes ,it is the exact concept of free will thats why it has strong influence to us.

  41. Sicam, Arshiela Joy G. (Act185)

    New media has a great impact in our society. Many good things happen in our social media like we can communicate with our love ones and also theres bad things like cyberbullying with the use of internet. The word ‘opinion’ is our own perspective, way of thinking, understanding and belief. We can say whatever we want because this is just our opionion and no one can stop you/us. And this is what i like about opinions, there no right or wrong. Maybe you are right and also there a possibility that you are wrong, cause this is only just your ‘OPINION.’

  42. Bea May C. Gacus ACT 181
    The world with New Media now is being the basis of information, mostly from those people who are always using social media. This New Media are allowing all the people to express what they want to say and what they’re feeling. It is the extended life of other people,.where they can really express their self than true to life reality. New Media is where we can easily let people believe, confused and change all what you’re beliefs in life. Therefore, you should always think what are you going to say, be sensitive because not all people will understand what you are fighting for.

    Yes, I agree OPINION is powerful thing in todays’ life. Opinion is not a fact , but yes it can be a fact if you prove what you’re saying. Opinion for me is somewhat like judging a people, culture etc. Before you click , post or say someting on that particular thing or people, think first. Think if you’re gonna hurt or help that people in your opinion, be an openminded person. Have symphaty.

  43. Dipasupil, Vhera Laurein G.
    ACT 181
    New media such as social media totally make our world chaotic. Is it because we have our own perspective, we have different ideas, and we have our own pride. In the article, the author said that arguments and fights are spreading in social media, you can see it everywhere, and this can’t be avoided. Why? Because we just believe in ourselves, it is because we stand on our own opinion and ideas. I’m not saying that new media is a bad idea but the users are the problem. They are being eaten by their own opinion.

    That’s why I can say that opinion is really a powerful thing, it can tolerate one’s mind. It can cause argument which has a big effect to everyone. However, if we, the users will try to unite or try to believe each other, I think it would be great, no more arguments, just peace.

  44. ERICKA V. DUEÑAS -ACT #185
    Nowadays, new media continously play the role as a source of everything such as knowledge, facts/trivia, news etc. Truly, it has a great contribution to the vast knowledge of people specially the students but sometimes it serves as one of the hindrances for the people to unite. New media helps the people to express their own opinion to the point that it could bring them to have a misunderstanding with other netizens since people nowadays usually believe that whatever opinion might they have is always right specially as long as there is a person who have the same perspective like them.

    Opinion is a powerful thing in today’s generation because public opinion raises government awareness , influence media agenda and bring any other issues to awareness. For example when opinions are posted, political parties are able to determine how well or otherwise they shall perform. Government of the day could also change a policy direction if it sees that its policy is not acceptable to the people

  45. Santiago, Kim (ACT185)

    The eyes of the author shows how new media affects the world. As we can see, media has been a big impact to everyone’s life. It is their easiest way to express their thoughts, feelings or opinions regarding a certain topic. With that, we cannot avoid some misunderstandings due to our different perspectives. And this will end up to arguments; Endless arguments. No one can stop someone from fighting with his/ her opinion. Everyone believes on what they believed. Maybe, new media has been too open to everyone. And yes, it’s the reality, we just have to accept that everyone has their own perspective. Let’s believe that we can lessen this kind of arguments on social media.

    Opinion has been a powerful thing in today’s generation. Why? Simple like this, opinion is their way on how to express their own understanding. It is their way to voice out their side regarding a topic. Opinion is such a powerful thing because it influences other people how they can fight for their rights. Opinion is not just the way we knew it. Opinion can be a way to contribute to the better living of our society.

  46. Rachelle Anne Villacorte (ACT185)

    Generation today is really a great chaos because people nowadays ,as said by the author, have their own opinion and others do not want to hear it. The people using new media are too self-centered that they always believe that everything they said or whenever they open their mouth is correct, not accepting any objections from others,because they think that it is their right and no one have the right to oppose from it.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because people nowadays wants to please the world that leads to affect their own lives. People nowadays listen too much to others that they forgot that are different from others.

  47. Anne Margaret G. Navarro ACT185 – Based from the eyes of the author, New Media is something that innovates everything. It serves as the platform to express an individual’s opinion, thoughts, ideas, and even feelings towards a specific topic disregarding the side youre in whether youre right nor wrong. It also states that no idea is wrong at all. If it is something you believe in, you can go for it. We create our own identity by the things we think and say. There goes the opinion; Opinion is someone’s view or judgment about something that is not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. Opinion really is a powerful thing in today’s generation. Nothing is right nor wrong in an opinion. We have our own different perspectives and beliefs in life that makes us unique.

  48. Hazel Angelie D. Espiritu ACT185
    New Media is a medium of communication using modern technologies like the internet. From the text I just read above, the author explained that there’s a positive and negative side in a world with new media. It can build relationships for the people who share same perspectives, and on the other hand, it can widen the gap of differences of the people who oppose the beliefs of each other. In today’s generation, expressing what you feel, what achievements did you get, how’s your day going, posting the selfie of the day, capturing the ootd, etc. in social media became a must. And, new media became a battleground because of the people who don’t want to accept criticism and make an argument to prove that their stand and convictions are right.

    Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation because it is the way where we can voice out, share and express our own ideas and perspective in a certain scene or situation.

  49. From the eyes of the author, he sees that having New Media makes the world chaotic. He sees a lot of arguments that make the human race drifted away from each other and simply because of the differences we have and the sensivity of the generation now over anything. He also saw that freedom makes us voice out the objections we have. We view it as our right and what matters most is our own opinion and that made us separate and never united.

    Just like how I made my opinion to this article, that’s how important it is. Opinions tend to give us the different angles of a particular thing. Especially to the generation that we have right now, opinion is a very powerful thing. It is very undeniable that somehow it made us in control of today. Due to our sensitivity over things, we became very affected of the opinions we hear especially in social media may it be positive or negative.

    The New Media has become bigger and bigge nowadays. Every news, discussions, lifestyles, and politics are all in here that you will never be left out about the current events that are happening around you, making it easy to connect with your loved ones. But amidst of that, The new media has become a medium of all unending oppositions and rapports on what we believed in. That in every issues, there’s always an argument about the given situation. There’s pros and cons that are rising from the comment sections, insisting that what they say is the right thing and the others are just wrong. From the eyes of the author, it looks like New Media has been a hindrance in attaining peace.

    Giving insights about a specific argument is indeed powerful in showcasing ourselves. It is essential in helping us grow, from what we are feed in and what we share to others. Since our opinions can change someone’s perspective and views in life. So everyone should be mindful in voicing their insights. Using your words to build someone up, not to break someone down.

  51. Dhan Carlo V. Garcia
    ACT181

    New media is considered a new channel of information. These media are more convenient yet more powerful to influence other people. New media sets everyone’s freedom to express what they want to express. It’s the proof that we have equipped with nowadays with this kind of media. Number of users have been determined and it is more numerous than what we usually know. Thinking this fact, many people can reach the information from other people. Opinion of other people can be captivated by the other people. Thus, we have to be more responsible in using this kind of media, if we don’t, it can be the battle ground for all the people who have been eaten by this.

    Yes, we are in a democratic country and we have right to do whatever we want as long as it does not affect the other people’s feelings. Cognizant to this, we have to be deal with the true meaning of this, if not, our freedom of expression will be terrible today.

  52. (HANNAH FUJEN TAULE – ACT185) Why is opinion such a powerful thing in would greatly influence today’s generation. According to the article. New media help us to communucate with other, we can share our thoughts, knowledge and etc. But there are many excempted in creating such new in media. We encounter some fake news and because of new media we dont know the truth. But sometimes new media really help us, because we can now share , communicate with other people far from us like in the other country. Opinion is a powerful tool that greatly affect or influence today’s geneation. New media is good but sometimes not because some minor people can watch some prohibited movies but the media can prove them to watch because there are no age limits.

  53. “In today’s generation, everything is a right, a freedom and no one can be an objection of any form for that matter.” This is a line that caught my attention how new media is shown from the eyes of the author. New media is most commonly refers to the content available on-demand through the internet. Through this new media, we are able to express ourselves, learn from others and connect to people. The author is trying to implies that today’s generation is a part of new media that no one can object to our freedom to express.

    Opinion is really powerful in today’s generation because this is how we voice out ourselves. Nowadays, if you don’t express yourself, you’ll miss the chance of being part of the society because you don’t tell people what and how you feel. Opinions help us to learn and accept the sides of other people.

    ELLAO, TRISHA I. – ACT185

  54. Davalos, Josua G.
    ACT-181

    From the very beggining, God created Adan and Eva possessing each other’s differences. And up to now, people sleep and wake up, with a different possession to others’. This is because we have each others’ identities that differ from you, from him, from them, from everyone. No one was born with the same mind, with the same flow of ideas. We. Are. All. Different.

    And this matter bears the means of new media in today’s society—which I mentioned above, “Full of Differences”. New Media really plays a big role in someone’s lifestyle, does he jog, does he eat veges, does he drink Starbucks? (DOES HE BELIEVE IN FAKE NEWS?) My point is, maybe yes, some were jogging, some were vegetarians, some were spending a lot of money for a cup of coffee, because he was influenced by the media. But there’s also , and there will always be the one that totally disagree or simply dissent because maybe he/she was exposed to a DIFFERENT media that articulates dissimilar idea. For an instance, I am a youtube video viewer and I love— which I really love watching Bretman Rock’s video, predictably I will talk the same way Bretman talks. But if someone hates Bretman, then he/she hears me speaking like the said vlogger, that person will surely, hundred percent will be annoyed to me. No questions asked why!

    So yeah, OPINION really matters, it plays a vital role in someone’s making decision. Again, like what I mentioned above, “We. Are. All. Different.” And honestly, we lies with each others’ opinion though clearly we are not the same. Because opinion matters. This is absolutely because we used to please each other.

  55. Kyle L. Villasabas ACT 181 – New media is highly interactive. It becomes our way to communicate to others. It becomes the easiest way for us to talk to those persons who are miles aways from us. It is also a platform which serves as a way for us to share our thoughts, opinions and ideas. Through this new media made everything becomes so easy. Nowadays, opinions became the real deal in the new generation. It becomes so powerful. Its like every opinions are right and has a point. Your opinions can make other people believe it is right. In just one issue, everything will have their opinions and new media is the way for them to let their opinions be shouted. It is so powerful to the point that it can give many emotions to people. It can send hate, love and such. Though sharing whats in our mind or insights is not bad but we must think very well of it before we broadcast it because we may never know what will be its impact to others or what it may bring.

  56. Temperatura, Ma. Sophia S.J.
    ACT 181

    Believe it or not, new media is a big part of our generation today. It provides us information, news, social issues and etc. from around the world. It also helps us to connect to our relatives abroad and be updated on what is happening in our society. New media has an advantage and disadvantage and I think that is what the author’s wanted to tell us. We all have our freedom of speech but we can’t escape the reality that we are all born to be criticize by other people. We have our different opinions and beliefs and that is the main reason why some of the people are arguing about something and it cause so much trouble in social media. Some can’t accept the other’s opinions they just all believe on what they think that is right. What I think is, opinions is such a powerful thing in today’s generation it can easily influence other’s beliefs and sometimes it also cause trouble. We have different beliefs, cultures and also opinion the only thing we need to do is to respect other’s opinion and listen to their explanation don’t easily judge their opinion just because on what you believe you must understand and respect them in order for you to respect by them too.

  57. HOW IS THE WORLD WITH NEW MEDIA SHOWN FROM THE EYES OF THE AUTHOR?

    Opinions are everywhere. It can be seen in someone’s post in their accounts, some can be seen in comment section, for whichever event they have concern about. Everybody wants their opinions expressed. It’s is their judgements over thing that matters or has importance to them.
    In this generation, opinions are easily expressed because of the mediums we used such as blogs, facebook posts, tweets, and even in the comment sections. This what the author saw that many used these kinds of mediums on expressing different opinions per their beliefs and what is right to them. Of course, everyone has their own opinions and not everyone agrees to each and everyone’s. And this causes arguments and everyone debates for their own beliefs.

    WHY IS OPINION SUCH A POWER THING TODAY’S GENERATION?

    In this generation as opinions easily expressed through social media, many of us not just want to say it publicly but also be heard. Expressing opinion is a way society progresses. Opinion is important in igniting change.

  58. Bryan Alcantara Dinong
    ACT 185

    The author sighted how all of us used the new media to invoke our rights and used the freedom of speech wherein it became the key to the voiceless. It somehow modified the abnormalities we are all seeing but every good things had their downfalls and consequences. Having a lot of of principles and beliefs caused a lot of ideas clash and parting us from being united at one side but now fighting against an opposing philosophy.

    Everyone’s idea when believed by others is such a powerful thing to throw to whoever you might think is wrong. That’s why on every opinion or idea we are hearing, we should first analyze it and validate to conclude and decide on how are we going to respond. A simple opinion can betray a lot of people but on the other hand can save a lot of chaos when patronized by all of us.

  59. April Hanna Tablang
    ACT 181

    New Media proves that everyting in today’s generation having an opinion is right and no one is wrong. In the eyes of the author new media gives us nothing but an argument and an opinion that can break the goal of everybody which is world peace. OPINION is a powerful thing in today’s generation because opinion can influence everybody to believe in that and saying it is a fact. Opinion controls everything and in one opinion your beliefs and everything will just break down. But Opinion gives us the matter to be free because we can say our feelings and thoughts. And because of new media having an opinion is easy you can just write and post your opinion on every social media. Opinion can be right because you can fight your rights but having an opinion on everything can lead our world spilt. So, new media can be advantafe for us but also can be diasavantage because how can we can unite if everybody is an opinion to say.

  61. Balintag, Jhoe Marie B.
    ACT181

    We live in an ever-connected world where every information can be shared in less than one second. The rise of “New Media” enhanced the communication of people around the world. Technically, this allowed them to express through different user-generated media such as websites and blogs.

    In here, users interact with one another and help spreading news that is necessary for everyone’s sake. However, There’s always two sides behind every thing that showed up. We can notice the changes in the new media’s current environment. Yet! People nowadays, got that urge of wanting to post everything that happened to them through social media and honestly, I really am that kind of person who ain’t actually an anti-social but couldn’t be notice frequently in social media ‘cause i hate seeing nonsense dramas and jokes being posted well in fact, it could be lessen their hard feelings but couldn’t be solved that much better. And yet, I just don’t give tolerance. Sorry not sorry. Generally, the consequences are that, one may receive expression of esteem, respect, affection, or admiration. But tension and other negative reactions were really existing behind those compliments anyone could receive which is being brought as a result of the evolution of new media technologies.

    When it comes to opinion, I really believe that this is a necessary step for a better self understanding, to have more confidence and to broaden our mind. Be willing to share your opinion and accept that your point of view is not always the best one. And I also believe that there is nothing wrong about having a different opinion from others and trust me, you’ll manage to get the best out of every opinion you will for sure learn way more than in any other possible way.

  62. Cyrille Ann Dappit ACT-181

    The new media covers everything. Every opinions, arguments, beliefs and what we say bothers everyone. The author defines our identity to what we can say and not what other says. The new media is our freedom that we can express our thoughts and the main platform in communication. This new media is the most influential in changes that the author specify that opinion is powerful because it leads to unity if you believed within a same opinion. One of the example of it is when you and your classmates have the same opinion about how President Rodrigo Duterte leads our country, all of you will be unify and the consequence of it is that not everyone will agree to that opinion thats why it tends to start a arguments between people with different perspective. Every opinion is different from each and everyone, because every person has a unique perceptions and beliefs in life and this issue become more powerful since this arguments became a problem when it comes to social media since most of the people is into new media everyone has a chance to share their thoughts about that certain case and many of them will start a fight because they will not respect and understand the point of each side and this is how opinion is powerful. And some opinions bacame facts and this opinions can also start a rally, organizations and any different groups that has same opinions.

  63. From ACT181, Shill Nicole Coronel.

    In this modern times, it is now easier to do a lot of things including cooking, transportation, and even in the field of communication. But today’s generation new media is always on the top, it is basically a medium of communication that uses the internet. Reaching to people about our thoughts had became easier than ever through what technology can offer to us. We can express ourselves through the internet, different websites or social media platforms. This things is called New media. We all know that when expressing our feelings or thoughts about a particular topic there is no right or wrong. Sometimes it can really help our society to become aware on what is happening around us. And from the blog post of the author it is great that we have a new media but we technically forgot the proper purposes on how to used it. And now, how can we all unite if our lives stock up inside of this world and forgot the real world outside.

    “People, we as a tiny spec of human race in existence in this universe would never unite in one cause. For all we know we all have our differences. From there we are not meant to unite.”
    In this qoutation, I can say that we can’t please everyone just to impress or to prove that you are right because people nowadays are getting blind with what they believing. People are different; people were raised differently, and people choose to see life in their own eyes. So we have to be mindful of that but that doesn’t mean that we have to subscribe to other people’s lenses. Knowing and better understanding people is one thing, trying to become how they would have us be, is another. In new media, we believe in our thoughts and opinions. This world is really “chaotic”; blind and deaf where people are being slave by the media. But despite of experiencing chaos the author believes that it is by nature and we believe that it will be alright and have such improvement in doing what is rightand avoiding what is wrong.

  65. John Loyd Lopez ACT181 – New Media changed everything. The way we live our daily lives, the way we deal with other people. It has advantage and disadvantage. The advantage to the Author he has more chance to share his work to the world but in the other hand people may ignore the old way of reading a handouts article, because people focus on what New Media brought to them, the convenience. New Media help us in many ways but let us not forget the one who helped us to reach our called “New Media”. Now in our generation living in a modern world we tend to believe in what we see in social media and also we have more freedom to express our own beliefs and opinions In a way we abuse our called “freedom of expression” or “freedom of speech”. Opinion is such a powerful words or thing in today’s generation, people easily depend on what other people say about them or opinion about what they did. In just one “opinion” you might destroy other people’s life and dreams, and even destroy himself. People believe on what you tell them to believe. So use your voice to build positive in each and everyone. One honest voice is louder than a crowd.

  66. Villanueva Christian Jay Dl.
    New media now can provide answers almost every question we have in our mind. We cannot deny how fast it develops not just in one nation but rather the whole world participates. Everyone has an idea, an opinion, a say over about anything. That line from the author tells us we all have our capability to express our thoughts and emotiobs through media where everyone may see what’s that idea all about, we cannot prevent others to give their opinions about a certain topic or issue since they’re also capable with it and they also have their own beliefs and understanding, but the thing is we are not open for suggestions, we are not open to accept criticisms and we are not open for other opinions because we think that we are always on the right. New media gives us freedom to express our ideas but we should be open for others beiefs, but the only key for those thing is respect and acceptance

    ACT 181
    The article is all about us, humans being a natural man. We may be too sensitive about simple things yet we still cannot realize of its true worth. A person who has something you really wanted to have is envious, which leads to broken relationships friendships and even soon to be developed bond.
    It is easy for us to share opinions because we live in a continuous developing environment that keeps us apart from close ties. Some people give their opinion through social media that sometimes cause bad result. Critism is part of our daily conversation and if we do not refrain from it then we will not be able to attain our goals.
    For a group of people to be united they should accept each others’ flaws and inabilities, learn to fit in without lowering the standards you have build.

  68. Alexis Mae Rey ACT 181. New media refers to “those digital media that are interactive, incorporate two-way communication and involve some form of computing,”. And its very convenient for us users. The most popular to the people is the social media. Where we’re free to do anything or express our thoughts. The world with New media was Chaotic from the eyes of the Author of the Article. I do I agree, why? Because people don’t stop until they’re satisfied. Sometimes they get addicted to the thing like arguing with someone. Always online, bashing, rants and many more. Opinion is such a powerful thing in today’s generation. As I have said earlier that people is free when they’re online. So we tend to give our opinions to everything we saw online, but we have different opinions which causes arguments, clashing of ideas of each other. It became chaotic.

  69. Cyrille Joy F. Baybay ACT 181

    -The people of the World today are using New Media as a platform to share their thoughts and opinions about some issues. Because of the new media, they are discovering some people which has the same opinion as theirs. With that, they think that their opinion was right and acceptable because of the fact that someone has the same idea. But like what the author said on this article, the things that happened in the past are still happening today and it will keep on repeating.
    -Opinion is such a powerful thing because people can share their thoughts about something that is maybe bothering them and it will help them ease their uncomfortable feeling. On the other hand, opinions can also cause damage to people. It can affect someone’s decision. Sometimes, they did something not because it is what they wanted to do but because of the opinions that they received from other people. But we need to remember that opinions are just opinion. It’s just someone’s suggestion. No one can say if it is right or wrong. Because at the end of the day, it is still you who will make the decision.

  70. Marcelo, Marjory M.
    ACT 185
    From the eye of the author every one has it’s own belief. We couldn’t understand each other because we have our own beliefs that tells us what to do. Indeed, the world is chaotic because in every things that we will do every one will have a say about it. Each one of us are abusing ‘freedom of speech’ because in our mind set everyone has the right to say what they want. Sometimes, or there are a lot of times, we will just say what we want with out noticing that we are not in the right place to say such things like that. A lack of understanding and respect makes the world chaotic in the eyes of the author. In today’s generation, opinion is powerful because it can hurt everyone. It may not be physical but it hurt us in an emotional and mental way. Like what is said in the article, in our generation we are very sensitive when it comes to politics, religion, gender and etc. that is why when someone oppose us we build a wall between them because of not having the same beliefs or opinion.

  71. New media provides broad things that are part of our lives now. It provides the freedom of Information to all. It is a thing that will always face change and will continue to develop/improved every single day.

    opinion is a powerful thing. I strongly agree that opinion is the most vital tool that we use to have successful actions. But also your opinion alone is not enough to make it more powerful. I believe powerful opinion arises in group meetings and discussions. An individual opinion may be great and powerful but it will make it more stronger when it is process by debating and testing in a group. An individual opinion may be blind of its OWN FLAWS, we need someone to see those flaws and rectify it.

  72. Cua mariechelle alden r. Psy 184

    New media is powerful thing. People often see it as the new medium for everything. It can either guide us or mislead us. The new media is ineed accesible but it is can also be manipulated. Opinions are often posted on social media, diverse opinions on certain things can cause conflicts. Opinions are now powerful enough to change people’s mind. For example, the campaign on Duterte’s side, all peoples opinion are posted online which people can freely read and some of them are either offended or persuaded. This is the only one example of what new media can do. The new media can give us everything.

  73. SAVELLANO, JANE MARIELLE P.
    DEN183

    New media enables users to create and share content in social networking and because of it, social media became a diary where people rant and express theirselves. Social media is a marvelous tool for showing the world just how clever we are. People are social beings. We like to express our opinions and be recognized on how we expressed it. We like feeling right and we tend to show that we believe that we are more intelligent or better than other people. Apparently on the internet, your identity is hidden and you do not feel scared to express your thoughts. Being unable to see and hear the other person tends to make people more bold in what they say.

    Social media gives voice to anyone which makes it a great equalizer, uniter and at the same time, divider. In today’s generation, I could say that freedom of expression is abused. Freedom of expression does not mean we can say anything that we want to say instead, it is someone’s right to say something is protected within certain limits. Not all of the things should be shared. We must know our limitations and be responsible in every actions we make.

    Opinion helps us understand how others see the world. It is very powerful because it can ignite change. It shows that you are capable of taking a stand and you are willing to defend something you believe. Opinion is not based on fact or knowledge. There is no right and wrong in stating your own opinion because it is a personal belief.
    We must accept and understand that not all people’s opinions are the same as yours. We are all different therefore, we should be open minded and respect each other’s perspectives. Let us just understand and respect each other to make the world less chaotic.

  74. Joshua Lois C. Paulino COM181. New media most commonly refers to content available on-demand through the Internet, accessible on any digital device, usually containing interactive user feedback and creative participation. In this description that states new media is the on-demand which people are attracted or amused to what it can do to our society. Our society has grown from different trends that could affect different persons in the world. From this article says that the reason why we have leaders like presidents, mayors, pastors, and other leaders in the society is to guide their people on how the world will affect them positively and negatively. Life is cruel and people must be more responsible on their social media actions which it can change a perspective of a person.

  75. Lexter A. Almirol Com-181

    New media is so helpful even if you don’t watch tv or read papers all the trends, news and issues are here so you can relate to everyone it is so helpful and you can benefit from it. Opinion is important because giving opinion is a rights to voice out your sides and freedom. you can be supportive or be an opposition. Because world without opposition is worse that everybody can do whatever they want that is so opinion is powerful.

  76. Clifford James Abenir COM-181
    -New Media became the platform in today’s generation and media became the basis of what is right and what is wrong.
    -Opinion nowadays became too powerful because once a person speaks out then followed by another, it will then have a great impact on the latter part. Another thing opinions may vary-every person have different opinions which sometimes people argue with one another due to different perspectives.

  77. ANGELES, ANGELIC L. (COM 181 – BSCS-ML)
    1. How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?
    New Media from the eyes of the author shows how such is becoming a platform in our generation. We have different views and opinions. If those views agree with others, we build mutual bond and understanding from each other. But if they disagree, we build opposition to the other. The author even emphasized the different variation based on culture, beliefs and traditions that’s why we are not meant to be united to each other. We believe what we want, today media has been a freedom for us to express our feelings and knowledge on a certain issue. The author points out that how can we unite if we are also the ones building barriers to be divided and if there is any chance that we can bring world peace in this world full of war in our minds. Proving ourselves who’s the best.
    2. Why is opinion such a powerful thing in today’s generation?
    Opinions are way to express our different views and opinions. People nowadays are quick to judge and criticize based on their feelings, emotions and background knowledge of a certain matter. We try to persuade others to listen and see our own perspective to different issues in our society. Maybe that’s why giving opinions in certain ways has become very powerful and ubiquitous.

  78. How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?

    – From the author’s perspective, we can see that even after many generations have passed and considerably a lot of things are changed he is convinced that humans will always find something to argue about or disagree with. The world is a place where you can either form a harmonious relationship with anyone if you have the same beliefs or not and you can have an opposition with another group if you have the opposite ideas and beliefs.

    Why are opinions a powerful thing in today’s generation?

    – Opinions can be facts for others. If a mind is wrapped at his/her opinion sometimes his perspective becomes clouded and thus thinks that his/her opinions are in fact true. Opinions are rights for others. When someone or something is against their judgement they tend to create arguments for their opinions that they consider ‘factual’ because the people in today’s generation doesn’t like having their ‘rights’ being questioned therefore they disagree with opinions that may oppose their way of thinking.

  79. Jamil Donovan G. Aguinaldo | BSCS – DF | Com – 181
    New media such as social media totally make our world chaotic. Is it because we have our own perspective, we have different ideas, and we have our own pride. In the article, the author said that arguments and fights are spreading in social media, you can see it everywhere, and this can’t be avoided. Why? Because we just believe in ourselves, it is because we stand on our own opinion and ideas. I’m not saying that new media is a bad idea but the users are the problem. They are being eaten by their own opinion.

    That’s why I can say that opinion is really a powerful thing, it can tolerate one’s mind. It can cause argument which has a big effect to everyone. However, if we, the users will try to unite or try to believe each other, I think it would be great, no more arguments, just peace.

  80. Carl Bukalan PSY 184 – New Media is portrayed as a way of communication between people. It served as a freedom of expressing what we want to say, but of course comes with a price. It provides disagreements between some parties.
    Opinions matter even more in today’s society for the sole reason of respect. We freely accept whatever people may want to say about a topic. To each their own.

  81. Nikki com181
    Based on the author everything is a right being opinionated nowadays is not a big deal, it’s now a concept of giving ideas to people and taking opinions also from the people.
    Opinion is a powerful tool today because sometimes the opinions of others has a great and good impact on the way you think and decide, Opinions can make a lot of change on the way you think that will help you make your own decisions and build your thinking. It has a negative and positive impact it depends on the person, on how he/she will take the opinions of others

    How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?
    New media affects us on our daily lives,it gives us the information we need to know and what we want to know, on the author’s perspective is that even centuries have passed, we always have different opinions, the humans always see different side of one topic, some would agree and some will disagree.
    Why are opinions a powerful thing in today’s generation?
    Opinions has an impact on the people in this generation, honestly they always tend to see the opinions of others and if it’s not same side they would end up on arguing, just because they think their opinions is better than them.

  83. BSCS-DF COM-181

    -Based on the author, it is shown through the opinions of the people with the use of new media such as this article. As you can see, many of the users commented their own opinions regarding to the question given. With that, the author can see every user’s comments, making the author to realize how these people feel from his article, and also it shows how new media was shown to the author itself.
    -Opinions can determine each weaknesses of the arguments which makes the people counter the argument. It can change the whole topic making the table turns. A good example would be a debate. If you were given a question and you answer it base on facts. Yow will not win the debate easily, in fact it will make you only a bit of correct. But giving these facts a counter argument that will make the people raise question to it, it will make you win the debate. For the reason that, these opinions can make the fact be bluff.

  84. Pascual, Paul Gabriel [ C.O.M – 181 ]
    – The world with a new media shown from the eyes of the author is quite chaotic since not all the people in the world are wanderers of other perspectives.

    – Because, people nowadays tend only to follow since they don’t know what to do anymore.

  85. Jayrald C. Galleto
    COM 181 | BSCS-DF

    How is the world with New Media shown from the eyes of the author?
    The new media is chaotic because people arguing nonsense of about what they believe and not. Some tend to believe that they are always right just because they feel it.

    We can’t all be united unless we all have peace of mind and respect to each other regardless to our race.

  86. Ariel B. Dome COM-181

    From what I understand and what I see in the eyes of the author, he sees that having this evolution to that builds the social world ” New Media” makes the world chaotic. Through this new media, we gave a freedom to express ourselves opinionated through posting it on Facebook, twitter, writing a blog and etc. And todays generation there’s a lot of people using it.

    Opinions are not only important in igniting change, but also they help in defining the kind of person you are. Having an opinion shows passion, determination, and knowledge. It shows that you are capable of taking a stand and you are willing to defend something you believe in. Due to our sensitivity over things, we became very affected of the opinions we hear especially in social media may it be positive or negative.

  87. Morgia, Gabriel Jake S. | Com181

    The article describes how opinionated this people have been and have become. In my own opinion(pun intended), the author is trying to describe how humans have never really agreed on anything and is almost completely hopeless of seeing a future where in we can just agree on one thing. According to the author, people have been becoming more and and more opinionated with everything being a right and a freedom. The New media is the number one thing promoting this wave of opinionated humans.

    With the New Media, people have somehow gained this |sense of being empowered” resulting to everyone getting so opinionated on everything. This “sense of empowerment” has been the factor behind major social changes. Because of this, people have become so opinionated and have been so sensitive to certain topics and that sensitivity has led to movements against and for certain causes which has then been changing the very constructs of our society. With all that in mind, it can be safely concluded with the effect of the New Media, opinion is indeed such a powerful thing in today’s generation. We can only hope that this sense of empowerment, will be used in the pursuit of an idea wherein there will be harmony in society, away from the discourses of human selfishness.

  88. How is the world with new media shown from the eyes of the author?
    New Media is today’s trend. It helps us share our ideas and thoughts about something because we all know that we have our own differences like belief, faith and opinion. And from the eyes of the author it is the way people can easily argue and defend themselves to others.
    Why is opinion such a powerful thing in today’s generation?
    Opinion is the people’s way to express what they really feel on something or expressing what they believe. It is a powerful thing in today’s generation because we have now new media that we can easily use to say our opinions. Today opinion can help or influence other people by saying what is right or what is wrong.
