Why We Always Agree to Disagree?

People who love to disagree in social media are ones whose minds are well-fixed by their own thoughts-- and will never be changed by anyone.

Why We Always Agree to Disagree?

People do have their own judgment to criticize based on what they feel or know. Once they are convinced by their own judgment, it is easy for them to create another perception to talk about. It creates nothing but a non-sense conversation when it starts. You know what I mean.

As world commits today in a several platforms of distributing information, people are hooked to blurry part of possible verdicts. Oftentimes, they used it as their reference to be updated on what is actually happening to their surroundings. Sometimes, they always get themselves in a hard time in choosing and paralleling of information. As they are frightened by this, they have started to create conflicts and disagree in social media. Maybe due to repetitive uncertain experiences, some people have their guts to not rely and trust in social media. Lack of credibility is the main reason why they always disagree on it; yet sometimes, it is also served as comment place in pinpointing other uncertain information that is why it does not end up in a best result. It leads to a worse result in a very beginning.

However, even there are some instances that really show facts, they go beyond and never look at it due to what is already curved on their mind– that it is not worth the trust that they are giving in. They ignore the facts based on what they are experiencing like getting uncertain details, unrelated data, and even deceitful information. Fake information has been spreading and left us questioning ourselves if we are going to believe or not. Sometimes, as we always end up in this kind of scenario, we are jumping into a conclusion. Our judgment became poor to criticize, believe, convince, and make a right and valuable decision.

As it happens, people always end up on what they only know. Uncertainly, as how people are doing today, they always jump into conclusion even they are lack of information to share whether they do agree or disagree. They are quite dependent on what other people’s viewpoints and left  questioning ourselves once we perceived it, they also start to disagree on a certain topic, only based on what they hear, see, and know without a proper analysis. Nothing will happen but uncertain judgements that will surely cause to misunderstanding and chaos. It is quite difficult to deal with because their thought about a particular topic is too limited to create and decide whether he or she agrees or disagrees.

People who love to disagree in social media are ones whose minds are well-fixed by their own thoughts– and will never be changed by anyone.

MY EXPERIENCE

Arguing in Social Media

When my favorite product published their commercial in social media, I quickly got to it and saw myself making a comment. I made a good review about the positive benefits of this product to me as it is really beneficial to me. I commented there that every time I use that product (product that I was saying) it really helps my skin to be and it really lessens my acne . It is normal for the teenager to be conscious in their looks, right?

 

As I commented there, I always emphasized that those benefits are just for me and there is a possibility that not everyone may not experience these because it really depends on how that product reacts on their skin. Many people were against to my review about to that product. They always entered the bad effects that they got when they used that product. As I was saying, it is included to my comment the word “para sa akin”, but their minds were already fixed.

 

At the end, I just kept myself distant from that because it really pushed me to be rude and inconsiderate.

 

Another Experiencing Why I Hate Believing in Social Media

(Just Want to Share)


It is a normal for a student to wait for the announcements if there is a class suspension during bad weather condition. As that scenario, some people get the opportunity to deceive people through making posters in some social media accounts that there is a class suspension. As an indolent student, i got myself to believe on it since that I was enjoying my bed and the weather. “Expectation vs. Reality”, you know the feeling, right?

As I believed on it, I was just totally deceived. As a result, I ended up in a scenario getting myself up so quickly as I could. I prepared myself for just only minutes compared to the time that I always consume preparing myself during school days. I really felt that I was little bit bad version of Flash due to my fast-moving actions during that day. It was hard moving so quickly since my mind and body soul was too occupied by different scenario like what if I was the only one late, I was the only one who they were awaiting for, or what if I was the only who got deceived by that hell-like poster.

Since that day, I never believed on information posted in social media. I verify first before I give my judgment. Various of reference I get before I believe. Therefore, even the information posted in a social media is factual and informative, I always do ignoring it and making myself busy in verifying it in a several sites or reference just to maximize my judgment to create its decision whether the information is true or not.

  1. The topic was good. It was really timely and you can see a lot of arguments online especially now that the elections is coming. There are a lot of people defending their candidates. As for me, I think people always agree to disagree because they are closed minded. They don’t want to accept information from others because people have so much pride inside of them. Below is an experience I had arguing online.

    So, I had this weird discussion last month about a flat earther. Basically, a flat earther is a moron who believes that the earth is flat. He then provides some sources about where he found that information. It was really dumb because he used youtube as a source of information which was not really credible. After a long nonsense argument, I realized that every facts i said won’t ever get to his small head because he refused to absorb the truth.

    One tip that I can share with you guys about how to prevent these nonsense arguments is to just don’t care. I know its dumb, but its true. Whether you see someone spouting nonsense online, just don’t start an argument at all. Because in the first place, his mind was settled on his own opinion. He won’t care even if what you are stating is true or not.

    There are many issues in the Philippines that needs to be resolved, conflicts, drugs , personalities and even those who are not famous but became viral. We all know that social media gives everything to people news and viral videos. People can state their own opinions on the comment section and also they can reply to a person’s comment or opinions through the comment section on a respective issue even they don’t know that certain person. For example, the viral video of Mar Roxas’ campaign where he is eating on a mug and drinking on a plate, many people are debating, some find it ridiculous and some shows their support. People often debate on silly and unimportant things, they act like they really care well in fact they don’t, they just want to argue with the other person for their own fulfillment. Debating on social media makes the issue more viral and that will cause a negative impact on that matter.
    I never experienced debating with a person on social media, because for me every opinion is important, we people have our own perspective about a certain issue or matter and we should respect each other to avoid such ridiculous fights or debates over social media that will cause negativities that will cause the issue to spread worldwide. We should avoid debating over unimportant matters or wasting our time to contradict each other, the best thing we should do is to understand each others ipinion and look for something interesting on each other rather than debate and contradict each other.
    To avoid such things as debating over silly things, people should know that every person is entitled to their own opinions and we must respect others opinion in order for us to gain respect. Because respect is a foundation of a strong community and country.

  3. Browsing through social media you can see a lot of debates especially on a certain and hot issues in the Philippines, celebrities, personality, politicians, politics etc. Example is Mar Roxas’ campaign, many videos leaked on social media that made fun of him, some people find it ridiculous and some felt pity. Social media is like a freedom wall, people can comment and express their opinions on the comment sections and a person can contradict it by replying to the comment, and that will cause them to debate over the matter. Not just one issue but many issues are being debated by many people on social media, they pretend to care and pretend to be smart but their goal is only to contradict a person and his/her opinion because he/she would feel fulfilled and that will affect the matter negatively.

    I don’t have any experience arguing or debating with a person on social media, because for me we should respect each other’s opinions and debating will not bring us the solution we wanted for the certain matter, but it will only worsen the situation.

    Every person is entitled for his/her opinion, the best tip is that we should not contradict each other but we should accept each other’s opinions and respect it if we want to be respected as well, Because respect is a foundation of a strong community and country.

  4. The issue of this article is very interesting. Since, most of us use social media as a platform to express their 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 debating and arguing of certain people in social media has become ubiquitous.

    To be honest, I never really had an experience of arguing with someone online because first I think it is just a waste of time and some just use social media just to cover up and pretend they know something but in reality when you talk to them personally they don’t have the guts to defend themselves because they are afraid to speak their minds, the people who are only brave in social media and gives aggressive comments are known as “Keyboard Warriors” and second is that most of the arguments debated online becomes non-sense. Why? Because if you argue with a person anonymously, you wouldn’t even know the person personally. When they can’t defend themselves anymore they’ll just block or report you. So how could that be a smart debate? Most people who argue online uses a common fallacy “Appeal to Pity” wherein someone tries to win an argument by using his or her opponent’s feelings of pity or guilt. To make him/her look sorrowful. It is a kind of “Appeal to Emotion” and most of us Filipinos are merciful that’s why we side to those who look pitiful. They play the victim. I see endless debates about the government because they blame the government for everything while some defend the government that it is not the government’s fault if there’s a sustained increase in the price level of goods and services in our economy because we are all globally affected.

    My special tip is that before you argue or debate with someone not just through social media but even personally, you should make sure that you have credible and reliable sources that will support your claim in an argument. you should be careful of what you’re saying because once it’s said it can’t be taken back. There’s no problem if you want to prove a point in a debate but make sure you do it smart and professionally. We all have different opinions and we should all learn to see the different perspectives that we all have because we can learn and gain a lot of information from it.

  5. The topic make me in a dilemma state because sometimes I don’t know why will should I pick this or that…..
    But it’s good since it gives people an idea, specially to the people that have no idea on where to start about this topic.

  6. My Thoughts:
    We always agree to disagree because, I remember the days of phones with old style dials. We didn’t even have answering machines back then. If you called someone and they didn’t answer the phone, you had to call back and try to catch them in real time. When a call came in, there was no caller ID. You just picked it up and said, “Hello.” It was sometimes hard to catch up to people, so you had to hand write and send a letter to communicate when you were both leading busy lives.

    My Experience:
    This generation, If I can’t catch someone on my phone, I can easily leave a voice mail or send a text. Or even better, tweet, Facebook message, or send a private message on messenger. I can see what others are doing within seconds of them doing it, assuming I share it on a social network of some sort. It’s not hard to catch up with someone if I want to find them. Kids have no idea how convenient this is in our daily lives. I love social media, as with any communication medium, it comes with its ups and downs, pros and cons. Overall, I truly believe it makes the world a better place in many ways. It also gives a platform to some less savory behaviors and opinions.

    My Tips:
    Here are some ways you can begin regaining control of your digital habits, your attention, your time and ultimately, your life. Use each platform with purpose. Each social media platform has different strengths and weaknesses, Be disciplined, Be yourself, Control what you see, Be happy with who you are.

  7. This article is good to show its points to the problem of people relying to their conclusion in a certain problem. In my understanding, people stating their opinions in a particular problem are subjective because give their conclusion in their experience, seen, and felt. Those people won’t accept facts which are objective results based on researchers that have the expertise on the particular problem that they only believe on their opinions, experience, and point of view in the problem.

    I have never argued on social media because of certain reason which i only argue through face to face method. The problem is all about the TRAIN Law (Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Law). I had an argument with a unnamed person which he is not against to the TRAIN Law. He only liked it because one of the TRAIN Law’s benefits to the people which is no more Income Tax to people who have below Php 150,000 annual salary. But he did not know about the cons to that law which gasoline, LPG, sugar, cosmetics and other things to people will get more expensive. He only based his argument with experience and opinion to the problem which it is not a reliable result/conclusion than the objective result/conclusion.

    I have a big tip for you guys which you must be updated to the news and you must watch the news, read newspapers, listen to the radio, and read an article to a certain problem. Before concluding your point of view on that problem you must know every detail on that problem on how will it affect to you and to other people.

  8. LOVE IT! What a GREAT ARTICLE! Compliments to the author! The message of the article has so much relevance in our society it’s ridiculous! In our world today, keyboard warriors are just coming out like ants from an anthill. So much hate in the world of social media. So much discrimination and so much conflict. It would be too sad if the continuation of this phenomenon would lead to the destruction of the platform itself.

    I had this experience once where in people were debating about whose songs were better. Specifically, it was a online debate on whether EX B’s music was good or not. One user debated that people should not force there musical preference on someone and that we should learn to appreciate all types of music. Another user debated that it was very obvious that bands like IVOS(IV of Spades) and the such had way better music than what Ex B can offer. They went back and forth and as much as I wanted to agree with what the first user said, I found myself with the realization that there was no point in debating with people who were just fixed on an idea. The more you try to convince the more it worsens. My goal then changed from debating to diffusing such arguments.

    My only advice for this is to use the platform to promote respect for between its users. Like in the real world, we all have different ideas, preferences, etc. We must all learn to respect one another for that is the only way for us to arrive at a future where there is harmonious online interaction.

  9. My Thoughts:
    Personally It’s been crazy and entertaining about this article. However, these disagreements seem to be magnified these days. Why? Why is it that we seem so much more with our criticisms and judgments about other people’s opinions? Well, if you ask me, a huge part of the reason is because of social media. In the last few decades, there was no social media. There was not even an internet! So if people disagreed with each other, they had to do it in person that it always feeds us information and opinions.

    My Experience:
    Personally I don’t have any experience on the social media where people online have debating because it comes with its ups and downs, pros and cons. I truly believe it makes the world a better place in many ways. It also gives a platform to some less savory behaviors and opinions.

    My Tips:
    Before you go jumping to conclusions that other people are, in fact, wrong,do a reality check. Is he/she really wrong? And are you 100% sure that you are really right? Many times, there is not an objective right or wrong. Instead, reality is subjective. What you think of as the truth may not be the truth. But what he/she thinks of as the truth might also not be the truth. Why? Because many times there is no ONE truth. Be respectful enough to other people to agree to disagree. You are not the same person, so allow yourselves to be on different pages.

  10. , the internet has become the most important and broadest field of meeting and exchange of views and dialogues among young people, especially social networking sites that have become a forum for discussing the most important issues in the world, but these sites also caused a lot of problems between friends or colleagues , because of the Different views it’s not because the specific subject But the lack of acceptance of different views, and the lack of respect for the others opinions
    one of my experiences arguing with some on online was with my old classmate so I am not a political expert, and all my relationships with websites and internet forums do not go beyond music, fashion,social media and youtube and over time I started to meet some people who have different interests, who began publishing them on my page and I was publishing them as a courtesy, After a while I found my classmate ignoring me on her page. On the day I found her, she accused me of ignorance and superficiality, because I support that guy and share his ideas with him, and she does not agree with them intellectually. I was very surprised and shocked because we are not that close to each other at way she attacked me so i just decided to block her on all social medias , because she called me ignorant, and did not respect me or the others
    here is some tips that i think will help to avoid any online argument :
    – Respect others opinion and having full faith that each person has his own beliefs and a different lifestyle and different backgrounds
    – Do not misjudge and jump to conclusions without understanding the full picture of the situation .
    – Do not count the other’s mistakes everyone can make a mistake
    The difference must be an old object that was and still lives with us and we should recognize it and adapt to it and try to develop it and move it to a positive situation and that our goal ، whether thought or opinion or a person

  11. Social Media ,where all information can be found. Nowadays information can be seen or found in social media but the question is it is true? is it a fact? The topic of why we agree to disagree will start here, everyone has his or her opinion or perception about something. There are a lot of information in social but some of them are the what we call “fake news” even though this is an information but still it is a false so it means its not reliable and legit. We often open a debate in social media when someone post a experience of them and it seems that his or her post bother you and you are triggered because you experience the opposite and then you start to argue or to debate, thats the way of social media right now we are having trust issue because we dont know what is the true and reliable news and fake and made up for fun news.

  12. Another thing that i would like to add is that, People, specially on social media, tend to not back down because of their own ego, as social media feeds one’s ego, people tend to make social media as “their own world”, they would think that the world of social media revolves around them because of how the way social media works, social media feeds you news, social media allows you to comment and post and while you get likes or shares, it gives you a feeling of being famous. I for one, has experienced this type of argument, i was watching my favorite dance crew on YouTube and i stumbled upon a comment that says incorrect facts about them (who were the members of the crew, origin and such) and i took the liberty to correct them, then the reply to that comment became an conversation of people, thankfully it went well, people were open to be criticized and be educated on the topic, and it became a comment section of praise for the dance crew. That is how a comment section should be, if not (in which it happens more often) simply answer back with constructive criticism, if it fails again, simply back down since all the typing you will do and the thinking you will do will just be wasted as you message will not go through them.

  13. Share Thoughts:
    My thoughts about this topic is that the message was really good because in today’s generation it was happening every single day when people are using social media, people always agree to some information that people disagree because for them if they agree to that information or post they think they are right and they think that information will agree to all people but for us humans we have different perception in the things we see around us. Also it is the only way to resolve the disagreement. Acceptance of the truth. People spend too much time discussing based on false fundamental assumptions. 

    My experience:
    Personally, I don’t have any experience in social media in arguing with other people because for me we should respect one another and respect how they share their thoughts about that certain topic. Because if we just argue with some people in social media it will just have a big problem and nothing will happen. It will just be a stress thing for us. I know for other people, they say that we have a right to speak on thoughts that we want to say on other people and don’t just be tacid just say what you want.

    My tips:
    My tips for this kind of thing first we should have respect on other people and don’t just easily argue with them if you don’t the background story of that topic or situation. Secondly, we should know if that information is totally true and not saying fallacious information to others or if that information is unbelievable just keep our mouth shut and just be quiet. Lastly, we should think first if the thing we are doing is right or wrong. If we do right we can continue what we are doing but if that thing is wrong we should avoid it and don’t continue it because in this case our lives will be in danger and people will think bad things about us because people nowadays have such a bad attitude in some arguments like in social media.

  14. The topic talks about how people now-a-days on social media can criticizes and judge you easily without a proper analyzation. People on social media can easily manipulated by what they see and hear. Since we all have different perspective, opinions and etc. people tend to misunderstand everything on social and that’s were they start to create conflicts and disagree in social media.

    To be honest, I never had an experience of arguing with someone about something because I know we all have a different point of view on things and for me it’s childish to argue with someone specially on a “stranger” and it’s a waste of time if you’ll explain your side and they still believe themselves. And it’s hard to deal with close minded people and it makes no sense at all because once you provoke them they can easily report or block you “that’s why its a waste of time”. a debate on social media with someone who is a total stranger is futile.

    My tips about this certain topic is to “mind your own business”. And remember everything that you do on social media will reflect and represents you.

  15. Well it’s not always because of narrow-mindedness that people refuses to agree sometimes they just don’t want to be humiliated online on public for agreeing that their concept is wrong and you’re right. Social media is a really huge place where people always read, watch, get entertained so it’s really reasonable if someone doesn’t want to get humiliated in there.

    Unfortunately I experienced some of this when I’m in high school. As a highscool student I always want to create trouble, so there’s a time when I argued with a fellow classmate online regarding an online game which we play a lot of times, then he posted something online which is wrong so I corrected it for him then we started arguing and at the climax of that argument he pm’ed me saying that he knows that I’m right and I should stop commenting in it and he will do the same. So regarding this, I just stated my opinion and I hope no one argue with me here.

    But don’t worry I got a tip to prevent this scenario from happening, like just you know mind your own business and prioritized your own entertainment over correcting someone’s mistakes, they will learn it on their own so don’t worry.

  16. As a person who lives now in the era of technology one of our daily habits is using of social media not just for communication and entertainment its for sharing your political views, stand in any situation and your principle. In my experience in using of social media in any issue reading comments is the most interesting to read.
    You can see how they are competitive when it comes to debating I also called them keyboard warriors. I didn’t want to start to argue with them cause they will insist that they are right even if its wrong and its futile to argue with them nothing will gain and nothing will lose but there’s one thing that I like to do correcting their wrong information just for the other people who reads it too. I always research for the information that they always giving just to prove if its true if not I will correct it. I will not let them brainwash other people too. My point here is too you can avoid debating and you can help others not to fight what is right but to right what is wrong.

  17. The given topic in this article was very meaningful and very interesting. Social media is a tool, it’s a tool that can connect us to each other and elevate our levels of happiness because we feel part of a community. It’s also a tool that can spark heated debates, anger against each other, anxiety and depression. We’ve seen many people in social arguing and fighting simply because the words that were said, most often behind a computer screen, were enough to push the individual over the edge. Twitter, Facebook, and email provide a platform for people to lash out, say untoward things behind the safety of a computer screen. We do not have to agree on the issues. In fact, disagreement can be good, at least when we truly listen to understand the merits of the arguments and the people with them. In other words, we own our actions, our responses and our comments, verbal or written.

    Truly, I never been to experience in debating or arguing to someone in the social media just simply because I don’t want to criticized others opinion but rather just respect their own freedom of expressions and honestly I don’t like to waste my time just to argued other users in the social media.

    Even though I don’t have any experiences in arguing with other people online but I can share a tips on how to prevent these nonsense arguments spreading on your wall online. The best tips that I can give to this is to identify and clarify what the point at issue really is, and to concertedly stay conscious of the fact that people are not their individual beliefs, and that it is alright to have been wrong about facts. If people can manage that, they can have disagreements without conflict. Everything is black and white, but we cannot get to any middle ground or open up our perspectives without hearing what others have to say. Whether we agree, or not. Or, they can achieve the same effect if they simply accept that conflict is not necessarily bad so long as it ends and has a reasonable expectation of getting somewhere.

  18. Everytime I open my social media account, there is always these kinds of posts/articles I have witnessed everywhere wherein its comment box had most people debating or arguing regarding to the said post/article itself. One of them called pro and the other one called cons. But let’s face the fact that some of these people were just commenting with no legal attention to really showed up face-to-face if the one they argued with said to let’s face each other someday.
    I remember when I fighting for my basketball idol LeBron James. Everyone hates him when things go wild, especially when he leaves his former team that drafted him, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Just for the sake of getting one championship, he transfers to another team that he, himself build. I protected LeBron, but knowing that it has a story why most people hate him. So, I think quite first if I still idolize him. Moving on, for me they all called keyboard warriors, since this is a tough call for me, I once called myself as one of it. After a while, I realized that arguing with someone through the use of internet is such a waste of time. For the reason, that we do not know if they only commenting due to that someone paid them. On the other hand, we do not know someone’s intention on why they are arguing their beliefs even though it is wrong still. So, I guess we should let them show their opinion, since we all knew that no matter what we are believing, still it has its own flaws that someday someone will notice it and will say it is wrong.
    To avoid these such cases, let’s just ignored them. We cannot deny that there is always someone who hate on us. Hate on our beliefs, so let bygones be bygones. There is nothing perfect in this world. Let us not be ashamed to it.

  19. Social Media ,where all information can be found. Nowadays information can be seen or found in social media but the question is it is true? is it a fact? The topic of why we agree to disagree will start here, everyone has his or her opinion or perception about something. There are a lot of information in social but some of them are the what we call “fake news” even though this is an information but still it is a false so it means its not reliable and legit.

  20. Why do we argue online?
    The internet is now the world’s biggest debating forum, “netizens” are making the small details into a huge one, well online argument is less productive than frontal discussion. I will gave some of my experiences disagreeing online. I remember reacting angry emoticon on my friends post in social media about disgracing teacher well actually it refer specifically to my mother but then I realized no one believes on her based on the comments, so I gave way to not commenting bad words, the whole story is she was caught cheating through calling his friend from another section, asking for the answer, since my mother is the adviser of her friend, my mother go to the room where she’s in, then told them indirectly the cheating issues without mentioning the name. Then the issues spread around the school, we notice her because she is crying at the eatery front of our school, saying she embarrassed her in front of her classmates, since we are curious we asked some of her classmates about that, then they replied “huh! Hindi man sya pinahiya d nga namin alam na sya yung tinutukoy ni maam, tas iyak-iyak pa sya kila Monfiel” so that statements triggered me to post online saying “Matalino sana” many are commenting who’s I’m referring to, while other just laughing.

    The other one is about online shop, I saw this one item that eventually force me to buy it, since the seller has a good feedback and high ratings I ordered the item. Then it took 1 week to receive the item but the problem is I can’t receive it due to wrong shop, so I call her telling about the issues, at first she is so nice but then she said “Ano po bang problema Ma’am kung ganun po re-refund nalang po namin pera nyo” then I replied “Hala ate d’ko naman po alam na mali yung shop na nailagay nyo sa package kaya hindi maibigay ng courier sa akin hindi rin po pwedeng buksan” then at the end she raised her voice saying “Ire-refund nalang nga po namin!” even if I so much like the item I push myself no to beg to the seller to find other ways to receive that one. Then I said to her “OK!” Those experiences made me realize to have patience and control our aggressiveness, but when I go back to that situation I was still pissed off but at the same time I just laughing on it now.

  21. We live today in a world dominated by the social media or internet and we all know that almost everything can be found here on the internet. And most of the people especially teenagers, not a day goes by without them using the internet checking their social media accounts for at least 1 hour a day be it for the assignments/studies, for work, for online shopping, for watching videos, for communicating to their loved ones and many more. Hundreds of millions people flock to social networking sites to read and to speak what’s on their mind. Internet is the most influencing and powerful media today. But as an internet user, do we know how much we take responsibility on what we are posting in the web? We all have the freedom to post and to do everything online but have you asked yourself to be mindful on what you are posting in your social media?

    I honestly don’t have any experience of arguing to someone here on internet or social media. I do give my opinions to some social issues here but I haven’t tried and will never gonna try to argue with someone here because we all have our own different opinions and the only thing that we have to do is just to respect each others opinion here.

    So my only advise is think before you click. We really should be careful or mindful on what we are posting here on social media and be open-minded because not all the people here has the same opinion as yours and we all have the freedom to speak what’s on our mind.

  22. This topic is very timely. Especially that the use of social media has increased greatly over the past decade. It has been influenced greatly by the internet whereby it is being used all around the world and hence improving social interaction. Fake information has been spreading easily that gives different perspectives to netizens which results to an argument. What goes wrong in arguments especially in social media is that the participants care mostly about winning the argument. It would be better if they cared more about learning and finding the truth, and less about winning in order to avoid it.

    I remember when this girl tweet something against our school ( her account is in public mode) . I think it is around September , 2017 when Our Lady of La Naval is at our school. Her tweet says: “Bulok naman sa Letran sayang lang tuition. Para sa mga misa siguro yung tuition fee nila.” This triggers me so much as well as the other students from our school who saw this tweet. First of all, she’s not enrolled in our school. She’s not on the right place to say those things. I will understand it if she is my schoolmate. But the sad things is that I’ve never heard such a thing like that from my schoolmates who are experiencing the system of Letran. How come she can say those things easily when in fact she has no experience compare to us. I answered her with: “We never rant about the system of our school. In fact, it’s our choice to study at Letran. You know nothing.” After I made my points clear, I just kept myself distant and move on.

  23. This experience is a little bit funny for me because way back when I was a grade 12 student AMA, there is this girl that always enter our classroom just to be with her friends and she will talk to them up to the point that everyone will be disturb because of the loudness of her voice and she even talk to my classmates just to make friends. And everytime she accidently looks at me she just smile and wave her hand. so I will just smile to her just not to be rude. So here’s my experience starts, I posted a tweet that says “I’m really excited to the upcoming concert of the script ❤” and in a few minutes there is one notification so I opened it and I saw her reply saying “Hi, #1 fan here” and I was like. The hell I care? So I commented, “Oh really? That’s good. But to tell you, I am their #0 fan and I know 0 doesn’t have value but it comes first before 1.” because I find her rude in her comment, to think that we’re not even close and she has the guts to say it to me eventhough she knows that I’m a fan of that band. And after sending my reply, I think she read it already because she message me containing the picture of the twitter account of the script and she even encircles the “follows you” means to say that the twitter acount of the band I idolized follow her and tells me that if I’m a real fan I should be also followed by their account. And that really pushes me to send her the picture of my concert ticket and ask her if she already buy a ticket for the concert because a real fan support their idols but she just told me that she don’t have time for the concert. That is why, I just forget what happened and tell her that “it’s ok, I will just capture everything and let you know what happened to their concert. And by the way. I’m grateful to meet a scripter like me.” and she replied “Can’t wait to talk to you in person on monday” and I think if I had controlled my temper there would be no argument that happened and that is the lesson I have learned and it is to control my temper. Because only an immature people wants to win an argument. And I found out that if there is no argument I can be able to make new friends.

  24. The article speaks the truth. I’ve been using Facebook for 7 years now, and with the rise of Social media sites and also the reliance of the people to the Internet and Digital Devices, I’ve seen so many toxic, non sense arguments to that point that is it funny and became my time to kill boredom. Watching people fighting online back then was frustrating and toxic, but today, I think it became entertaining, seeing how people argue, making the small problems an issue. As a Social media user, I’ve always been the Lowkey type of user. I don’t post nor share, I just use it to scroll and get information and to communicate with my family and friends. I don’t engage that much, I don’t comment and share my opinion upon a certain topic. Everyone is entitled for their own opinion. Everyone has their own perception and have different views. I may not agree with a person and he/she may not agree with me and that’s okay. Even if I’m right some people has already set their mind to their own understanding. The only tip that I can give is to avoid nonsense arguments, as much as possible do not engage and if you engage make sure that it is a healthy argument or discussion, be understanding, respectful and always keep in my mind that you cannot please anyone. Try to absorb the right things, to learn from it and be open for correction because that is how a man grow.

  25. For this article is good and a very interesting and engaging tppic as it is the highlight of social media where many people got hurled in a topic and fight for what they think is reasonable for them and try to influence other social media users.
    In my experience i never onced argued in any social media platform but i always read comments in a post about election run and presidential debate about the deeds and mannerism of the president of today. I find it interesting and engaging no matter how closw minded the user or how logical he can be, it just shows that in every issue in different perspectives they are right making it a case to case basis.
    The best way to avoid this kinds of arguments is just be silent or say your piece and leave don’t let it go any further to avoid more stress and toxicity

  26. After reading this piece, I realized that everytime I open my social media accounts I can see people arguing even if they don’t know each other and that gave me the thought that argument is a part of social media. And as one of the user of this social medias I remembered that I also experience having an argument with someone and here is my experience, everytime I remember this I find it a little bit funny because way back when I was a grade 12 student AMA, there is this girl that always enter our classroom just to be with her friends and she will talk to them up to the point that everyone will be disturb because of the loudness of her voice and she even talk to my classmates just to make friends. And everytime she accidently looks at me she just smile and wave her hand. so I will just smile to her just not to be rude. So here’s my experience starts, I posted a tweet that says “I’m really excited to the upcoming concert of the script ❤” and in a few minutes there is one notification so I opened it and I saw her reply saying “Hi, #1 fan here” and I was like. The hell I care? So I commented, “Oh really? That’s good. But to tell you, I am their #0 fan and I know 0 doesn’t have value but it comes first before 1.” because I find her rude in her comment, to think that we’re not even close and she has the guts to say it to me eventhough she knows that I’m a fan of that band. And after sending my reply, I think she read it already because she message me containing the picture of the twitter account of the script and she even encircles the “follows you” means to say that the twitter acount of the band I idolized follow her and tells me that if I’m a real fan I should be also followed by their account. And that really pushes me to send her the picture of my concert ticket and ask her if she already buy a ticket for the concert because a real fan support their idols but she just told me that she don’t have time for the concert. That is why, I just forget what happened and tell her that “it’s ok, I will just capture everything and let you know what happened to their concert. And by the way.

Because only an immature people wants to win an argument. And I found out that if there is no argument I can be able to make new friends.

  27. social media is now sticked to our daily chores and some of us can’t live without it. And it has advantage and disadvantage so as my experience on the issue of it was way back on my senior highschool i remember that there’s some issue on our school about not taking care of our requirements papers like the form 138 etc. so some of the students confessed their thoughts or issued on our page and it turns into public so many branches of our school read about it they also comment what they want there and they bashed all the admins and then the president of our school already know the issued then the students called on the guidance and talk all of them that who commented one of my classmates are one of them. The consequences of they did was not going on the stage to get their diploma and their lesson for that is they should not post it on social media always sometimes they should talk to them personally because it might be ugly for the name of the school and specially for the teachers and the admins.

  28. I always used to think social media was essentially a force for good, whether it was to initiate friendships, or simply as a useful tool for bringing together like-minded people to share informative videos. Having spent a lot of time thinking about mental health, I even saw social media’s much-maligned potential for anonymity as a good thing, helping people to open up about problems when they might not feel able to do so in that physical space we still quaintly call real life.
    I also knew from my own experience that it could sometimes provide a happy distraction from the evil twins of anxiety and depression. I have made friends online. As an author, it’s also been a great way to test new ideas, and has taken storytelling from its castle in the sky back down to the metaphorical (now hashtag-heavy) campfire. As someone who often finds social situations mentally exhausting, social media seemed far more solution than problem.

  29. Web based life resembles an opportunity divider, individuals can remark and express their assessments on the remark segments and a man can repudiate it by answering to the remark, and that will make them banter over the issue. The issue of this article is extremely fascinating. Since, the greater part of us utilize internet based life as a stage to express their distinctive perspectives and assessments. Individuals these days rush to pass judgment and scrutinize dependent on their sentiments, feelings and foundation information of a specific issue. I think individuals dependably settle on a truce since they are shut disapproved. They would prefer not to acknowledge data from others since individuals have such a great amount of pride within them. The following is an affair I had contending on the web.

    I didn’t experienced any toxic argument on social media because me, myself knows that social media is not the appropriate thing to debate or to argue on. Maybe sometimes I express my opinion, feelings, thoughts or idea on social media but not that bad because sometimes it is a good thing to express your thoughts to inspire or enlighten the citizens about to a certain thing.

    The tip that I can give to people who involves in arguing using social media, stop it and be open minded. just appreciate the good things and just ignore the bad things. You cannot please the people even you did good nor you did bad people will always have to say. Just do what is right and ignore the negativities.

  30. This article is interesting because it talks about todays society, many of us use social media in their daily lives and some of us become addicted to it, Sometimes social media is toxic because lots of us use social media as a tool to debate or to argue with someone especially if the topic is about politics, government, artist or even normal people. As a person who uses social media I don’t have any experience that had an argue with someone in social media but in some cases i read some of the comments and sometimes i get angry because people now a days don’t have any limits of what they are going to say in social media they just keep on bashing and commenting on it even though they didn’t even know the real story or the facts on that topic.

    One of my advice is sometimes we just need to know the real story first before we comment or before we make argue with someone because it reflects to our personality as a person who uses social media. Second is we should filter the words or the opinions that we’re going to say for us not to harm someone’s feelings. Lastly if the topic is really not interesting or if the topic is really not matter maybe we should just ignore it.

  31. As our technology grow there’s a lot of medium that people can use to be updated in our surroundings, such as Facebook, Google, Instagram and other websites. The news spread worldwide without knowing that it is true of fake. Some of us believe and easily manipulated by the news even we don’t have a complete details on what really happen or what is true. So this article helps us to know the ethics of social media, and the things we need to do. It is very informative.

    Arguing in social media is very rare, people arguing about the things they truly believe. But me, I didn’t experience arguing in social media because I didn’t care about their business. And I believe that everyone has their own perspective about what’s happening and I really don’t believe that starting an argument make the problem or issue solve.

    So as a student, we are educated enough to know the etiquette of using social media . If we know the truth let them know by telling it in a manner way, where you didn’t start an argue, Or if you know the truth just don’t mind the fake news that spreading around the world.

  32. I am not anti-Duterte but i am against his way of ruling our country and for that reason, one time I shared an article about extrajudicial killing on my fb account then one of my friend who is truly a supporter of Pres. Digong commented on the article that I shared she expressed her opinion in a way she’s really defending our President so I expressed myself too because of that we argued a bit.My personal perception is that the judgment frame is a bad place to take a conversation, a place with no leverage. This doesn’t mean that people have or have not done something that deserves judgment, and doesn’t mean you should spend your time policing (and judging) people who are furious and expressing their fury. Just that you can’t bend the moral arc toward justice from a place with no leverage and that is usually my personal goal. The entire conversation about what judgment might be appropriate for people who vote for a candidate whom I find racist, sexist and appalling is just one best side-stepped, neither affirming or denying what a judgment might be. To avoid having argument or debates online, we should all be open for the opinions of others. Let’s hear what their side is all about, let them hear what our side is.

  33. The first thing that got my interest was the tittle. While reading the whole article, I can’t help but agree to its content. We are indeed having different perspective about something. We are different with each other same as the thoughts that’s running in our mind. We have the voice to express our ideas but that didn’t mean we shouldn’t consider another people’s voice.

    I have my own experience where in I argued to someone about something and we exchange our thoughts. Fortunately, we are both understanding that we settle the argument after some time and decided to respect each other’s opinion.

    What I can say is that, we saw an object in different angle. We might be in front, top or back, so we cannot assume that what we saw is the same thing other people see. In the end, it is in us to understand what other people might think of something. Everyone need to learn that what he believes is not always true and that we should always try to understand someone because not everyone is open minded in accepting other person’s believe or opinion.

    Social 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. Internet 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. There are some instances wherein online debates get way beyond the topic and get personal to the point that even poorly constructed sentences, poorly executed language and spelling (you’re and your, their and they’re) and capitalizing random letters are criticized which leads to cyber bullying and calling names like jejemon and not educated. We start to believe that being right is proving someone else wrong.

    I have been involved in social media for 9 years and I have seen a lot of bullying and arguments online. I do not have a personal experience having an online debate or argument because of what I learned upon using social media is the art of not leaving a comment. I tend to keep my opinions to myself instead of sharing it online because I know that people are not open minded to hear other’s opinions. They will only hear what they want to hear and they just believe what they want to believe in. Online debate helps sharpen my understanding of an issue but because of people who cannot comprehend and argue is a waste of time.

    To avoid conflicts online, the best tip would be to think first before you click. According to Thumper in a Disney movie, Bambi “If you cant say something nice dont say nothing at all”. It would be better to just keep your mouth shut if you do not have a nice things to say to avoid arguments. One must also know his/her facts. If you are not sure of what you are saying, research about it to verify if your argument is a fact to avoid criticisms and fake news. We should be open minded and respect each other’s perspectives. We must also accept and understand that not all people’s opinions are the same as yours. Do not please everyone to agree with you. No matter how you share your ideas or opinions to others at the end of the day, you cannot change their opinions.

  35. The article itself was good. It discusses not only about false information that the new media has to offer but also discusses that once a mind settles on its own perspective depending on what he knows about a certain topic they often wrap themselves with that kind of train of thought and sometimes disregards other people’s comments about the concerning issue which would result to an argument in social media. Even when other people tries to show evidence, some people would still ignore the facts because they are so entitled to their experiences and every information that they have acquired about the argument whether it may be wrong or right.

    A previous experience of mine with arguing with someone in social media was when two different perspectives collided with each other. Both perspectives were interesting since the issue that they were talking about was beliefs and faith. Each of their points were not wrong but they weren’t getting along with their views about the topic. I decided to step in since some of the the information that they were sharing were kinda off. I reviewed both of their point of views and tried to understand each of their argument and where they were coming from. At the very end of the discussion, I explained both perspectives together and they actually realized that both of them were right. None of them was wrong, they just had a different view about the topic.

    I think a good advice to ever avoid a scene in social media with useless arguments is that to try and understand both arguments and what they’re point is. You necessarily don’t have to argue with the person who is arguing. You just have to understand where they are coming from and let the issue slide. Now if both sides are true doesn’t mean that one of them is the “actual truth” already. Normally, when you look into both sides of the spectrum then you will see the truth of the argument.

  36. Social media is the platform that we use, to connect to our family,friends even just social friend or they say mutuals. I agree on the article, many would disagree and agree. There’s always an different perspective. We must really know to respect other opinion, not just be limited to what we believe, it’s the modern world now, we could research we want to know, we have are sources. But we all know not all sources are reliable.

    I have never enagaged into fighting or arguing on social media, I just read those who are arguing, because I dont want to interfere on their topic, and just see whose gonna win, sometimes I just research on the topic their arguing on about but not really comment on them.

    Tips
    Stay calm, polite and professional, focus on your topic and you must know there’s every decision you make matters and it could have a lasting impact. It’s up to what you said, whether right or wrong. Always know that we have our own understanding, views to a certain topic, so we must respect people who criticize and those who strongly believe on what they just heard but not really checking if its reliable. And importantly you want to end up on understanding their thoughts and them understanding you and go the topic as simple as possible.

  37. Today’s generation is very active in many different ways. The generation that I also belong is called, “Gen-Z”. They say that the people who are involved in “Gen-Z” are liberated, audacious, and powerful. I can say that this generation which I belong is unique because we are able to stand up firmly and express our opinions in front of many people without hesitations despite of the possibility to get bash by people and put all the ideas against you. With the use of different platforms of social media, we got the chance to deliver our opinions and share it to our friends, but not all the time you will have their side especially when it comes to serious matter and/or political or social issues. Like what they say, teenagers or millennial got the potential to shine among the other past generations.

    I am the type of teenager who is active in social media platforms like facebook, instagram and many more but there is one incident happened to me while scrolling my news feed. It was actually my cousin who shared a post from the netizen. The post’s context was all about the type of girl’s clothes. The post said that in order to respect the girl, the girl must have decent clothes to wear. My cousin shared that with the quote like this, “Tapos magrereklamo at iiyak kapag narape o kaya na-cat call.” To be honest, I really got irritated to what he shared and what is the context of the post. I commented and emphasized in his post that clothes have nothing to do on how you will respect a person no matter what gender he or she has. It absolutely depends on how you evaluate your thinking, comprehension in this matter or just simply how your parents, friends and the society affect your personality and behavior. Unfortunately, my cousin did not reply in my comment, so I just assumed that I cleared his mind and somehow I gave him a little bit knowledge about this matter.

    Being a “woke” (a millennial word means an open minded person) person and giving a chance to correct someone’s perception in different things is great but we have always to keep in our mind that we must filter and evaluate the ideas and words that we will share to other people. Spreading knowledge does not require to be arrogant or to be the smartest person between the two of you. It is how you send your opinions to someone in a good way. We should always aim to have a good conversation or debate with other people so that there will be no chaos or misunderstanding after the discussion you had with that person.

  38. Social Media nowadays are part of our lives. The more technology are evolving the more people agree to disagree on a certain things.Yes their are lots of advantages when it comes on using social media but so as disadvantages. People can easily express their ideas and opinions using social media and without even thinking twice they judge or discriminates people on social media. It can also be harmful for the people who is using it everyday especially students. Teenagers are more active in social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram than in their school works.

    Way back highschool, me and my classmates decided to post on facebook the embarrassing video of our classmate. After posting it, everyone of us shared it and tag him and one of his friend commented saying its cyberbullying. We defend ourselves to his friend because before posting it we ask for his permission but his friend said that even if we ask for his permission it is still a bullying because posting it on social media means sharing it on public and lots of people are seeing it even his family and it may caused embarrassment to his family. After the long argument we decided to say sorry to him and to his friend.

    Based on what I’ve experienced, I learned that putting or posting something on social media can caused long term side effects. Everyone can give feedback to your post so might as well think twice before posting.

  39. The first thing that got into my mind when I read this article is social media has been a big role in our daily world routine. As a millennial student it makes me realize that we, people, make our own decisions based on what we see and what we hear in the social media. We mostly get our thoughts and ideas based on other opinions that we have read in social media. Somehow, we also put our decisions in life based on what we have read and what we have heard in social media which makes us controlled and centers our life in social media. Social media gives us news around the world and even in someone’s life. We even read some news about certain person which we didn’t even know if it’s true or not which make us think about that person’s private life and make some judgement that leads us to become judgmental. We, as a person, should know the perspective and the real story of the person that is being talked with for us not to spread a false news because a single mistake may lead to an argument and worst it will destroy the person’s reputation or even worst it may ruin his/her life.

    As for my experience, having an argument in social media is very hard. Being in a situation where you are being criticize makes me down in point where I feel hatred and disappointment. When I was in high school I have been in an argument with one of my roommates because he is spreading false news about me in social media. At first, I didn’t know that she is spreading some fake news about me but later on one of my friends tell me about it. She shows me the chats and posts of my roommate who is criticizing me, and it somehow it makes me offended and angry because she’s spreading a nonsense story about me it makes me feel hatred inside. Some of my roommates talk about me for a few weeks and even criticize and judge me. I’ve been in a point where I just want to get some revenge for what she have done, but it hits my mind that being the one who is understanding will make me the better person and doing some revenge will only make the situation worst so what I do is I talked to her and fixed the conflicts between us. As we fix the problem between us, she tell our friends and roommates that the news she’s spreading is a lie and it just got into her that she is wrong and feel sorry for what she have done. As for now, we’re still friends.

    My advice to avoid the conflicts using social media is to think first and to be concern in the words that we will comment before we post it. In today’s generation, people easily give their judgement or criticize others based on what they feel or what then know but we should at least give respect to others as we want to be respected. We all have different perspective in different things so to avoid it, we should at least know what the real story behind it and not just jump into the conclusion. Being understanding and avoiding arguments makes you a better person.

  40. Social media have become one of the most overly used platform of people specially of the millenials nowadays. It served a lot of purpose for us may it be for acquiring and seeking new knowledge, meeting new people, or an outlet for our outrage. And that becomes a downside for us, it became our outlet to express our feelings to other people and that sometimes we put ourselves in an unwanted situation. I remember the time when a certain person misunderstood my actions. She then posted something on social media that was ambigously and purposively directed for me. That is when the conflict between the two of us started. Our argument was so vast that it eventually invloved other people including my friends. As days pass the issue was slowly fading and until now we were never able to fix the problem between the two of us.

    The one thing that i can surely advice to all people is to be more wise in terms of these kind of events. It is inevitable but it depends on the person what kind of action or approach they will perform with this kind of situations.

  41. See the thing is we live in a generation wherein it is one click away. With everything starting to build up quickly and there is a vast of opportunity to everyone, it all seems impossible for us not to notice something. In the world that we’re all living today social media has become a part of an entity, and by us we try to make our own platform with it. As a social media user I often subject myself as a quiet one. Yes I do read and keep myself aware and updated most of the time but arguing with someone in social media is not my cup of tea.

    As for me I have neither had an argument nor a heated one in social media. I always have this principle that everyone is created differently as it reflects to their beliefs and perceptions, hence that has come to an understanding that everyone has their own opinion. I believe that each and everyone of us is entitled with our own opinion. Matter of fact that I think the reason why we always agree to disagree. Not that I’m saying that we should always keep our mouth shut and our voice low, but what I mean is that if there is something that is unnecessary or out of the topic then much better to leave it unsaid rather than to cause any misunderstanding leading us to getting ourselves into any unwanted heated conversation with someone.

    If we live in this world where judgments and criticism spits like fire then much better if we take time to be very mindful and careful to everything that we post. Who knows that one post can take somebody too far. We have our own opinion and beliefs and I think respect is always the key. Being respectful as its finest can always lead us to good and apparently can prevent us from getting into any unwanted scenarios. Just remember that in every action that we make there is always a consequence anchored into it, and what better way to do is to be careful and mindful with it. (And last I’m probably sure you hear this millions and billions or time and you’re probably sick of it but I’m still going to say it cause why not; think before you click.)

  42. The issues of the articles is very interesting a lot of people debate about this kind of issues. Social media has been big role of our daily word routine we use social media use to be a flatform to express our differences views and opinions. Using social media we are quick to judge base on what we see and what we feel with out considering others feelings.

    To be honest i didn’t mind to argue with someone online because it just a waste of time for me and i hate to argue with other people and cause i think people have a lot of perspective in life. But i have a friend that always want to debate online she always say what she feel with out considering others feelings that why she always have trouble.

    My tips
    Don’t argue and don’t debate with someone in social media because it would cause you a lot of trouble and to be honest i hate troubles. If you want to debate and argue you should be careful in giving opinions and don’t judge but what you only see you and what you feel you should find a credible and reliable source in giving opinions.

  43. I think arguing in the internet is a waste of time. You will spent your time arguing with someone opposing your knowledge/beliefs who’s also incapable of accepting YOUR TRUTH because it is not THEIR TRUTH.

    I had this recent experience arguing in Facebook on Mocha Uson issues which I always comments “Walang alam”. Then someone argued with me on how Mocha Uson helped to change the Philippines (lol). He gave points and so I am. Then it became personal. By this experience I realized that the words we use can be susceptible to the opponent and were to you.

    Tips avoid arguing in the Internet.

    DO NOT ARGUE AT ALL. Think about the benefits of not picking a fight for the first place. When something started, you can’t undo it.

    Bonus Tip if you can’t stop the itch to argue.

    KNOW YOUR POSITION AND WHY YOU’RE DEFENDING IT. Well, you will not argue naman if you don’t know what you stand for. But this tip says because were humans, we sometimes let our aversions for someone else cloud our judgement as to whether they are making a valid argument. Sometimes we do not argue because of the topic itself, we argue because of a specific person attacking us.

  44. This question will be answered differently by different people in the same situation.
    That is what leads to people disagreeing with each other. We all see things in a different way. There could be a lot of reasons for that. Hence, our thinking differs from others. For example, in a debate or a group discussion, there may be some speaking for the matter and some against. There isn’t really a right person or a wrong person here. They just possess different beliefs. At the end of the debate/group discussion, both sides “agree to disagree” and the audience is presented with both sides of the matter.
    It’s a situation where wise people choose not to force their views upon others and agree that different people can have different opinions and it must be respected. Because life is too short to argue! We all have our views, and the key to a happy life is to resolve yourself not to try and change others. But rather, to accept their views and the fact that we have different opinions than others and that’s quite OK.
    Now, you decide “AGREE or DISAGREE”?

  45. Recently I experienced I hadn’t experienced before. Initially, it made me laugh, but then I thought about it and soon the funny side wore off. I consider shame being a part of this generation. Some people are starting to be close-minded that instead of accepting information that is more reliable and true and they choose to believe on their own (false) belief.

    Nowadays, we are experiencing the domination of social media. It has everything, we can use it to raise awareness for a cause, but it can also be use to spread hate. It’s almost sickening knowing that teenagers base their insecurities around how many likes they get. The false perception of life portrayed all over social media is misleading towards teens and not worth the effort to filter.
    Not only is social media misleading, it is also very unimportant. Aside from the news part of the sites, a majority of the posts are extremely insignificant, unimportant, and unreliable.

    Honestly, I’ve never experience arguing in social media. I usually ignore them and block someone whenever I received the ride comments including last week as I was on twitter I posted something about why I like this specific Korean song, and not long after I posted I was bombarded by hateful and rude comments such as “Your stupid for liking kpop” “kpop is gay” “Disregarding PH music” and other that is too stupid to mention.

    Look at the state of grammar! For crying out loud it’s you’re not your, learn the difference between the two before acting brave. The other thing is I dont understand how I “disregarded” PH music by liking this song? I still listen to PH music while liking the song. And another dim-witted creature doesn’t know that “kpop” is a genre not a gender. Teens/Kids today know nothing. That instead of focusing on their schools they took their time screaming at social media.

    Those creatures who are brave behind their monitors and cell phones are usually called “Keyboard warriors”. They seem to be everywhere these days: on Facebook and Twitter, and Instagram and Tumblr from screenshots from Facebook and Twitter. Anyone can be tough when a computer screen and however many kilometers it is between them and the person they’re attacking protects them. Try to express your opinion? Just wait and they will be there with their inconsiderable comments.

    I hate the thought of arguing on social media because most of their arguements are biased. My sister said “You can never win an argument with someone on social media.”
    Sadly, she was right. Trying to discuss an even remotely contentious topic with someone on social media is a fool’s errand. Yet people still do it. My Twitter has been filled with vulgar discourse about that one tweet.

    I think about what happened and I was dissapointed in todays’ generation. Instead of avoiding conflicts we are more willing to make them, the will of winning an arguement is more important than gaining new knowledge, ignoring facts just to win an arguement. That is only an example of what is happening inside social media world.

    Instead of creating flames of stupid arguement on social media just ignore them. Instead of replying to them block them, it exist for a reason. The only key to avoid the nonsense arguement online is the virtue of not caring, mind your own business and dont give any shit. And most importantly google before you post!

  46. As we entered the age of information where internet is widely used, debates and argumentations were done not only in courts and person-to-person basis but also in social media. Internet gave us a lot of pros. However, it is also the cause of many heated debates among teens and adults. Internet debate/argument unlike the usual debate is not a structured contest. There are no rules to follow. Anyone from different places around the globe can butt in to the discussion and give his/her opinion/side that will gas up the heated debate. The usual debates may be judged in order to declare a winning side. Debates are to be used to tackle important issues/problems in democratic societies. In the internet, everyone is given the freedom to choose share or choose a topic and later on will be the cause of a debate. Each one will pick a side or give own opinion, but in the end, opinions are just opinions. No one wins in an online debate. So, somehow it could just be a waste of time.

    I have not been involved yet in an online debate or argument since I don’t see the point of giving my own opinion via internet. I would rather choose person-to-person basis in order for me to be understood well by my opponent/s. I just happen to have two friends of mine who got involved in a heated debate whether the president is the best in terms of running the country. The two gave their own opinions why such the current president is good or bad at running the country. Until, one of them cursed the other one due to lack of rebuttal. That was the time that I thought to myself why online debate is just a waste of time. You cannot predict if your opponent is sophisticated enough to argue with you.

    It’s hard for someone who firmly believes in a thing or two to not join an online debate. But, there’s a huge chance that someone will just be wasting his/her time proving a point. And so, a tip is to give or reply an opinion and rebut no one. Unless, a point was questioned in a nice way.

  47. Social media is one of the most transparent “book of life” we have. Everything we share, like, and post can be seen by the whole world. It is a whole new world created by every individual who wishes to. This article says it all. Almost every human being in this world uses social media. Everyone wants to be connected and go with the trend. But somehow without realizing, a lot of people are checking on you, judging you in every post you made or even comments bad things about you when in fact they don’t know you and your story. I am using social media for 8 years I never had an argument on social media because I am not the type of a person who posts bad things about others. Even though there was a time that someone whom we really don’t know posted a comment on my picture together with my best friend. He claimed that we did some dirty stuffs with him even though we never ever met before. Some of our friends defended us because it was already late when I saw his comments. After that I deleted his comments as well as the pictures and instead of posting or cursing him on social media I screen shot his comments and reported it on our Prefect of Discipline because luckily, he’s our school mate.
    As a responsible social media user instead of getting back at him through social media I reported it to the councilor. It is a lesson learned for me as well as my friends. In social media be careful who you accepts as a friend and don’t let anything posted publicly. You can’t trust every person you met on social media. Also try to control your temper because what you say also reflects on you not only the one who says bad things about you. As a person don’t judge others by their looks because you don’t know them and their story. Be careful what you click. Always think first before you click.

  48. Honestly, what’s written in this blog reminds of Crispin Maslog’s article (I’m not certain if that’s his name) about misinformation. If I’m not mistaken his article suggests, what are the things that we should do to prevent misinformation to spread. Do we need to professionalize the bloggers who disseminates information or educate the people who receives it? And I think he’s right but we know that doing these two is quite impossible.

    Personally, I haven’t experienced arguing or debating online and I’m not sure why. Maybe, it’s because I’m not the type of person who loves to rant about random things online even on twitter ( that I barely use). However, it doesn’t mean that I am not a victim of this so called “misinformation”. To be honest, I am not the type of person who’s active on social media which is a medium to be aware of the current events nowadays. I barely even scroll down on my facebook feeds that’s why what I read is what I believe in. Basically, I’m one of those people who jumps into conclusion even if I know nothing that were described in the blog ( I know, I’m sorry). Yes, I am one of them but not like them I’m not brave enough to argue online without knowing anything. I think, even if I don’t lack in information I still wouldn’t argue online because I know that it’ll just do no good to me. Still, I will share my experience that is somehow relative in this situation and an instance of this is my view regarding Duterte’s administration. Base on people’s rants and the news that I have watch about our president. Regarding war on drugs, inflations etc. I easily had my stand against Duterte that I even end up saying bad things about him ( I didn’t go beyond saying things out loud to my friends and family in person). But recently, as I’ve watch a commercial in our television about Duterte’s build build build project it instantly brought senses in my mind. And I think that’s the time where I realize how great Duterte is, not because that’s what I heard, saw nor read but base on my own perception. I guess, from the perspective of those not that educated person about things people can’t blame us from being like this because I believe that the time where they will have their own analyzation like me will also come to them.

    Instead of sharing experience about arguing online maybe it’s time for me to share some tips on how to avoid being in this situation especially that I haven’t been there. First, checking the reliability of the information. Before you believe on what you read you should check first if the person is credible of sharing this kind of information either if she’s a professional in this field or it’s base on her own research and experience. Next is the infamous quote “think before you click”. I know you heard this a lot of times and it’s not quite unique anymore still, many people aren’t doing this. Many people are not thinking carefully on what they’re typing in their keyboards. If what they saw pluck something in their mind they will immediately say things against it just to vent out whatever they are feeling. Which is not good so we should always remember that we should refrain ourselves from doing anything that we might regret doing especially if we’re under the spell of feeling an extreme emotion whether happiness or anger. But in case you’re already in this situation you should take accountability of whatever you did. If you found out you’re wrong then admit it. If you’ve done something bad apologize and do something to correct your actions. Another thing, before you post something you should also consider if the medium that you’re going to use is appropriate to what you’re going to post. Lastly, if you don’t have anything nice to say, just shut up and keep yourself from blurting it out. If you want to comment something, you should in a constructive way. Start by highlighting the points that you think is good then elaborate what are the things that the person needs to improve. We should be considerate in everything because everyone have their own battles in life and who knows you might just add in to the struggle that the person is going through.

  49. i believe that at some point of our lives we’ve already encountered some problems on social media since we all know that on our generation nowadays we tend to be more updated online than in real life. Based on my experience there’s this point when one of my friend on facebook tries to stereotype and discriminate other people who are currently experiencing a mental health problem or can i say that they are mentally unstable. This friend of mine tends to be so insensitive about this issue so as a psychology student i argue with him for him to realize THAT mental health issues plays a huge impact on our society nowadays and also i told him that he should help us to STOP THE STIGMA than to post or share some insensitive things on social media. We all know that social media had a huge impact on our society since most of us are so active online. it’s really important to THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK because other people might hurt or misunderstand you.

  50. Social media has been very relevant to our generation today for it is used by most of the people around the world. It’s not only there to communicate with others but to get information as well about certain topics, sharing your opinion and ideas and a lot more. Sharing your views and insights about your likes and dislikes about something is very ‘in’ in social media right now. But we can always have that encounter with someone we would argue with about the post that we shared even once/twice in our lifetime. I will give some of my examples:

    Prior to college I always shared something about my favorite K-pop groups like blackpink, iKON and a lot more. There are people who would see that as something cringy or what but I’m not ashamed because I know how good they are in both dancing and singing. But there is one time when one of my classmate commented on my post (Kpop group dance practice) and said that Kpop is a trash and their dance is not even that good. I just ignored it that time but when he commented something like that again I immediately replied to him and tell him to not watch again what I shared with relates to Kpop if he really think Kpop is a trash. Because why would you even waste your time watching something you think is not worth-watching for/ you think is a trash. But then he replied something really harsh again and continue about his arguments. And I just realized that it’s just waste of time to talk with someone who’s mind is already fixed about something.

    Tip: Just ignore whatever comment of someone about your post even if you think it’s a harsh one. You’re just wasting your time arguing to someone who’s already had a close minds. Post whatever you like as long as you knew you’re not hurting someone.

  51. I think most of us use social media as a tool for finding a new information towards to a specific topic and I think social media become popular is because social media has it all. It has all the good stuff in it and we tend to use it and become a part of our lives and because of that social media has grew widely for its convenience and also some news that social media platforms bought to people or to the “netizens”. Some point using social media has a bad side aside from the fake news and other content that can affect the people. Some factors of it is the people there are some point that we will meet a social media users that is way more to what we expected to be those are the people that don’t act properly on social media that causes some serious discussion or even debating or arguing in social media .

    Personally I didn’t encounter such things like this in social media such as arguing on a certain topic but as long as as you share what are your perspective towards to a certain matter and your not truly hitting other people feelings or emotion that is it.

    My tips on how to avoid this is to just let them be or even don’t mind them because probably some of them are wants to have a drama or love making a scene with other people that will lead for another people to involve until the problem will not resolve because people in social media are carried away by their feelings. So I think the best way is to just let them be because at some point we all have different interpretations in dealing with a certain topic/matter.

  52. We pay more attention to our number of followers in our social media accounts and filter choices instead of things that actually matter. Ever since I got to college, I keep on thinking, “I wish I had time to do this or that.” Instead of sending an old friend a text message to remind them I care or picking up that book I have been trying to finish for the past two months, I find myself opening up Twitter and scrolling endlessly with.
    Now don’t get me wrong. I am eternally thankful for social media. It helps us keep in contact with loved ones near and far. The Internet serves as a valuable resource for news, music and events. But somewhere along the lines, we have become dependent on social media for perceptions of ourselves and others. We often say, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” yet we can scroll through a person’s Instagram gallery or Twitter updates and feel like we have a good sense of who they truly are. Think again without second thought.
    This should come as no surprise, yet we all find it too easy to judge one another on a daily basis without giving it a second thought. In the past few years, social media has dramatically increased its pull with users all around the globe while simultaneously giving us another resource on which to base our perceptions.

  53. I was moved on how the article is justified. I agree that some people really do stick to their own perspective and they tend to not listen on what other people say or how other people react on some things via social media. It is very disappointing that no matter how we try to speak or share our own thoughts, we get criticized by it or how they react on it so easily. Some points have affected me in such a little time. The effect of this article made me realize that no matter how I try to defend myself in social media, I will never change their perspective on how they think about me. So, I just ignore it to avoid conflicts. It’s very common to me that whenever I scroll on my sns accounts, I would always see people arguing about who’s the best and who’s the worst. I don’t really like to see these kind of shits in my social media, instead of replying, I just block them and get on with my life again. I really don’t like fan wars, it’s getting too much attention, and it’s too toxic. Based from what I experienced, I do not join any fanwars, nor read some “bullcraps” about it.

  54. Trolling had been destructive especially in this past few years just because of the division of people who believes and defends their own beliefs through internet and the results were ugly. it divided the people, the nation and the country we love. That is the power of internet trolling it can divide countries from just a bunch of people who are ranting through their keyboards and do not know the repercussion of their doings especially in politics where people believe what they want to believe.

    People create chaos in such a small part of thought spreading platforms and they can reflect on what our country consists of. The only “unique” tip I can give is not-so unique and it is what our country needs the most.

    Discipline.

  55. In social media, we always get updated almost in everything and be more aware what’s happening in our surroundings. The world of social media is full of comments or judgements, news or fake news, people and ideas. It’s what we live for these days, love or hate, appreciate or not appreciated that’s the way they think now. Some of people now are easy to believe in fake news without even knowing the truth. Once they know some issue or news they will immediately believe without knowing what really happened. I have an experience of this, our friendship end just because of misunderstanding. My friend thought me that I have a crush on my other friend’s crush but I really don’t, they get mad at me and started to argue with me. They get very mad at me and started to post about the issue. I felt down that time because of what they did. That is also my first time to encounter that kind of problem. The very small problem, they make it bigger. Just only because of misunderstanding and believing to fake news, they didn’t listen or know first what’s the truth. They didn’t know first what’s really happened. Our friendship end just because of that. To avoid this problems for me, the best thing you can do is know first what really happened before you make judge to other person. Don’t judge without knowing that truth. Don’t ruin your friendship just because of fake news. Learn to be content with what you have. Also learn to appreciate yourself and what you have, not what don’t have.

  56. There are people that uses that internet with a very obnoxious and terrifying intentions. Intention by means of making you feel bad about who and what you are personally. They will say the meanest and corrupted comments in your posts  just to get a reaction from you and they seem to be addicted to that. A lot of people actually do this as a hobby and my mother thinks that making sleep as a hobby was bad.

    Debates:
    There are in particular social media users are always up online debating whether their opinion was more originally correct and trying to disprove the ideas of people that they are in combat with in the debating process.

    Some debates online or arguments are rarely an educated one. Most of them are just insults and memes trying to get attention which they think is very important.

    My best tip for dealing with debates is actually knowing the situation

    Is this worth it? Is this person I’m dealing with actually have good ideas?  Am I on the right? If you say yes to all of these, go on and try to debate in a formal manner.

    But if it seems like the person you are in probable argument with is an absolute nutcase and is not even staying on topic.

    Just go and leave him/her be. Give yourself a pat on the back because you just save some precious time for more scrolling for memes.

    “Precious time” ha ha ha

    Experiences:

    I was one of them before. Way back when I was in 9th grade. I created an alter account, pretending to be this superior intellectual that just steps on everybody’s “probable” mistakes.

    I was shitting on every person that I am interested in dealing with, digitally. I criticized their posts, insulted some people’s pictures, debated about religion and other controversial topics (most of my ideas weren’t even smart or helpful), tried to out win some trolls who’s doing the same thing as I am and overall just an idiotic manner of using the internet’s platform for communication.

    A lot of honest people talked to me before I get to change my views. I am thanking them til now.

    To answer the question Why we always agree to disagree?

    People just realize that it’s sometimes pointless to continue an argument that will lead you nowhere.
    Just accept that some people have their own “truths” and you have yours. If yours is the right one it will show if its not accept it. No one cares that much, only you.

  57. Honestly, the topic is very convincing since it’s timely within our society today. It’s saddening even if the technology arises it comes to a point where we abuse the use of it. In other words, instead of using it to help others which will be a way to be united as one. For me, social media is a medium for it’s a substantial platform to vent out the feelings we have or with what everything we want to say. Regards to our Social Media today, through the countless internet websites which we think will help us in having this proper etiquette however, with every understanding nothing happens. For instance, the spreading of fake news, some of these fake news are so persuading that in the wide world of internet.

    But as for me, I’ve never done an argument before, but rather I’ve seen different arguments that makes my eyes wide open. I was once a witness way back then when my cousin got bothered when she had read an online confession, “Nabuntis ako sa Pool” (I forgot the exact title). A confession was told that there was once a woman who got pregnant without evidence of sexual interaction. Hardly the best reason that this was possible was probably the time that she was swimming, someone actually secreted sperm cells on the pool and somehow entered her reproductive system.But apparently, that confession became wide known and lots of netizen reacted to the said confession; mostly said that it wasn’t true because sperm die due to the chlorine and some said that it’s really impossible. Later on it was not an accurate evidence yet it is possible. The truth is the girl was actually hiding the fact that she had a sexual intercourse with someone that got her pregnant and that someone is her cousin. Once again, many netizen got mad due to the said confession, and afterward, my cousin turns her bother to relief.

    And to avoid this, do not immediately believe on what you’ve seen online, because it will makes you fool.

  58. LOURDES TESADO of DEN183
    Social media is at its best, an unpredictable medium. No matter how you choose to live your online life, you cant fully shield yourself from getting into a disagreement with someone (or more than one person) at some point of time. Whether it’s a friend, relative, classmate, or just a random stranger online, it’s pretty easy to let it consume you. In some cases, it may even make you to delete your account before you get formally knocked down. But why do so many fights happen, particularly on social media? Usually, it’s because context lacks in text form
    Think about the times you’ve seen a chat message from a classmate that you interpreted in a way that made you not feel so great. Same goes for social media, where someone who follows you might take what you said a completely different way (or if they’re looking for a fight, taking it how they want to hear it). And I would know quite a bit about that.
    One time, I saw an article on Facebook and I read it and I let myself sink all the ideas beneath it then of course I would like to share my personal insight (insert share ko lang) about it (im not contradicting the article) then minutes pass, someone replied on my comment and its content is pure disagreement on my insight about the article but since it is not my first time experiencing shits like that i know how to politely respond in case like that. So i apply my action plan named CUNT. First is, i must let myself to cool down because bad things happen if you speak at a mad mood haha. Next is to understand their side, what factors that might have triggered them. Not to take everything they’ve said personal, choose only things. Lastly if things got out of hand, there’s T, means escape! like every internet peep would do.

  59. In our generation today social media is necessary specially in getting ideas or opinions about a certain issues and to disseminate informations and news, but we should keep in mind that there are people whose only motive is to create a conflicts and spread hate between netizens. It is noticeable how social media affects how people think regarding on a certain topics and formulate a conclusion based on their own understanding. It is the most lamentable part in our society, some of us become egocentric and always want to acknowledge their own knowledge and reject someone’s opinion. We can’t deny the fact that social media is a good platform to inform people what’s really happening in our environment, but because of foolishness some people become aggressive and drastic, to the point that they become blinded on what social media could bring into their lives such as numerous likes and a temporary fame. Therefore, we are also the reason why we experienced undesired treatment in social media.

    Honestly speaking, I’ve never experienced debating or arguing in social media especially in strangers but I’ve witnessed some of it. When Thai personality Madam Sitang Buathong visits Philippines a lot of people mocked and laughed at him because of his physcial appearance and made memes that circulate in social media quickly. Some people become rude to him without knowing his intentions, but there are also people who supported him. After seeing his pictures I admit that I laughed but afterwards I researched about his personality and I found out that he is generous and kind because he helped people that are affected of typhoon Yolanda. It’s important to know the real reason why a certain events or happening is existing.

    The article has a timely and interesting topic and serve as an eye opener to all of us that we should be careful on what we post on social media because it might hurt other people and cause arguments. We should keep in mind the etiquette of using social media and being a good citizens to avoid any conflict. Always respect people’s opinion and if you want to correct someone’s incorrect data or information approach them in a nice way and lastly, learn to accept criticisms.

  60. Social media is a huge part of most people lives these days young, old, girls and boys. Its a great way to keep in touch in everything because now a days it is the source of everything. However, it gives the people the apportunity to hurt other people. An interaction and integration between people, it gives power to people who don’t even know each other personally to have interactions with their personal lives , some gives you positive reaction but mostly some gives you negative ones just because they don’t agree , they dislike or they just don’t care about the post from your social media.

    As a social media user I dont have any experience yet but all I can advice from this new errupting hi-tech generation is that do not put everything about your everyday lives in social media. It is very important to always keep your self private in many ways . Be lowkey, being lowkey is always good for your safety and no argument.

  61. Precisely! Some Facebook posts gives us false information, especially when we have no knowledge about it. We should not be ignorant, we should be smart, and we should do our research. Some of us are deceived with convincing information, and this one is also a problem. Only gather information from reliable sources, open your minds to new knowledge, and act smart.

    Some of us agree to disagree. This move is a smart one. We often do this in arguments with someone unreasonable. For me, doing this is a result of a helpess person who doesn’t accept what we say. They are often people with little knowledge about the particular topic that their minds are closed. They will not accept any other’s statement except from what they believe. It is frustrating to deal with them as they display the very symbol of ignorance, so we have to agree to them to disagree. Only they can help themselves.

  62. UNPOPULAR OPINION: WHY DO WE AGREE TO DISAGREE?

    Giving opinions regarding social issues is quite relevant in social media platforms today. ” Netizens ” are entitled to give their stand towards certain issues such as politics and I do believe that it is a good thing that we started to be vocal about our opinion on certain issues. Whenever I get to open my social media accounts, I would always see different post of individuals stating their respective opinions and perspective in an issue. I used to feel at awe whenever I see people posting their opinions even if the issue is quite sensitive. It is a sign of bravery for me. I also used to love reading comments or replies to different posts. I loved the feeling of being able to see different insights and perspectives. It was quite educational for me because I get to see the different angles of a story or of an issue.

    But lately, I grew tired of reading these posts or replies. I grew tired of scrolling and seeing a bunch of nonsense and noisy hypocrites. For me, it is no longer stating your opinions but rather bashing people just because their opinions are different from yours. It was drastic. We lost our respect on our differences and we would rather attack the person rather than try to understand his opinions.

    It is not bad to have your opinions and sentiments regarding a topic but you should always respect other opinions. We should also be open for different insights. Let us all be well informed about what is happening to our society but let us not attack one another.

  63. Nowadays it just takes a couple of clicks to share anything with your friends, create events, know what your friends are doing. The rise of social media has many advantages and disadvantages as well. One of the disadvantage is cyberbullying. Because of the fact that it’s very easy to contact a person on a social media it can disturb personal lives.

    I’ve never had an experience arguing through social media because I’m not that kind of person who will argue publicly with someone, since we have our own perspective. We just have to respect each other opinions. But I know and I see a lot of people on my newsfeed posting rants, ruining and bashing each other lives without knowing the real story.

    My tips on how to be a responsible user of social medias is that We should be careful on what we are posting online because once something is said it can not be unsaid. We should respect each other opinions since their opinion might be differ from yours.

  64. This article is so relevant with what’s really happening now. In today’s time, we can’t argue the fact that social media has became our platform in sharing our opinions and voicing out everything we want to say, even if it is either good or bad. A lot of debates are happening just because they don’t agree with each others beliefs and opinions. And other people use social media as a tool to piss people off or say something so irrelevant and hurtful.

    Even I, had an experience being bashed online just because of a single comment in a public post, they started judging me even though they really don’t know me, only because they think my opinion isn’t right and it doesn’t fit theirs.

    I think one thing that can avoid things like debating in social media is to try to understand and respect the opinions of everyone, nobody’s perfect, so let’s be kind enough to just let anyone use their social networking site to voice their self out.

  65. Social Media nowadays are part of our daily routine. The more people agree to disagree on a certain things. Their are lots of advantages when using social media same with disadvantages. People can easily opinions, feelings, etc. using social media and without even thinking twice they judge or discriminates people on social media. It can also be hurtful for the people who is using it everyday especially students like me. Teenagers are more active in social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram than in their school works.

    EXPERIENCE.
    When I was in highschool I post a lot of things. Like memes and funny jokes but for me it’s not hurtful but for someone it’s hurtful. Because some post on facebook or any social media have content that is bad for someone

    TIP.
    Based on what I’ve experienced, I learned that sharing or posting something on social media can caused disappointment. Everyone can give feedback to your post so might as well think twice before posting. Because not everyone is the same perspective as yours

    CALILUNG, DEN183

  66. Social media allow us to create and share our own beliefs and perspectives in life. However it also has a bad effects for us. By giving our own perspective some people don’t agree with your statements and that can cause misunderstanding between the two of you.
    Whenever I use my social media accounts I just always scroll up and down, read some statements and like the posts of my friends.
    We have a freedom of speech where we can say our own opinions in life even if the whole world disagree and that’s life. But to avoid having misunderstanding maybe you should just keep your comment to others opinion if you’re going to contradict their statement because like what I’ve said we have our own beliefs and perspectives in life. Spread love not hate.?

  67. Social media has a massive impact to us because most of the time we use this as our platform to share our own understanding, perspective and ideas about something. By this, we can tell that one of the reasons why some people easily criticize someone online just because they set their minds close. I believe that someone who always tend to disagree are those who refuse to listen to others. Honestly, I have never been encountered such circumstances. At some point, when someone argued about something and I knew what he said were all nonsense, I want to enlighten him but I prefer not to and just ignore. Those are what they believed in, we are free to say what we want online but it has limit as long as we are not hurting someone by words. In my observation, as a social media user I can see that most of us know that we are different from each other but only a few respects our differences.
    Firstly, before debating about something we have to make sure that we have strong evidence, facts and credible sources. We have to be careful with our usage of words. We should know how to stand our own understanding. This is not just about yourself, we should also be considerate to others, know where they came from and know what they stand for before disagreeing to them. To avoid misunderstanding, just ignore them. Simple as that.

  68. As we live in the 21st century, the technology are getting updated day by day. We tend to use the internet everyday in our lives. If we don’t understand something, we search in on the internet. For me, it is indeed very useful tool for us to know something we really want. But are all tgings taht we really learn from the internet is true? Or just a matter of opinions and perspectives we are believing in.

    As an active user of the internet, I’ve encounter someone who doesn’t have the same perspective as me. He commented on her girlfriend’s display picture that her cleavage was showing. He thinks that he owns my friend. For me, I don’t see any problem with a girl posting her picture showing off her cleavage. I think that is confidence. Maybe we have different perspectives in life. He’s a boy and I’m a girl. He said that what will other boys think if they saw my friend’s picture. He added taht he is also a boy. My point is just why will you victim-blame? If someone will saw taht and think differently the way you post it, that’s there problem anymore not yours. You will not please everyone in this world.

    I thought of that many times, it does make sense now for me. That not all have the same perspective as mine. If you want to make an debate about something, you should also know the other side’s knwoledge. Like in the internet, it is very important to use it properly. Many people are reading the arguments you’ll be using. Many people believe on what they read in one snap. Just be careful on what to believe in.

  69. Its very common to people to easily judge an other perspective, we’re always agree to disagree and arguing on the case that hits our pride,, like for example a post from a social media for feminism or gender inequality,99.9% to the netizens click om the comment box and express their feelings,insights,other perspectives on that issue, and a lot of reactions/violent reactions. and For me different perspective divides us, knowing that ourselves was the right one also knowing that the other side was wrong.

    One of my experience is i share on facebook a photo of a woman that “sumasabit sa jeep” with a caption “grabe wala nabang gentleman sa earth” then a few minutes theres a los of comment kesyo ganto kesyo ganyan, di lang kayo ang pwede at may kayang sumabit, but the other comments was so disappointed to the passenger of the jeepney because they didnt give a seat for that lady. That is one of the example of giving other perspective weather they/we did’nt know what was the true story behind of that picture. I highly recommended to the social media users specially for my fellow millenials; THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK

  70. “The internet is now the world’s number-one debating forum, but online argument is more bitter and less productive than face-to-face discussion.” I have experienced arguing with someone not in social media but in online games, also known as dota 2. I have friend playing it, but unfortunately we lose because of wrong decision that my teammate does, I am desperate to win that game, I know I did my best. that’s why I argue with him, I question his actions and decision and he answered ” I just want to”, And his answer made me angry, we trashtalked, insult each other and mention names that wasnt supposed to be necessary. My tips on avoiding this kind of non sense argue is that, Control your emotions and do not mention names that are not involve in your arguement.

  71. Social Media gives us advantages and disadvantages in our life. We update ourselves to comply our satisfaction in many aspects. Usually, information comes from the internet and and it is easy to be copied or to change. I have experience about fake news when I’m studying in PUP, that was all about suspension of class. The PUP Senior High School page released that we don’t have any class on that day due to the bad weather, we, students decided not to go to school but PUP Main page also released that we have a class but it was late. The next day the weather is good, and our profs complain to us why we didn’t go to school yesterday and we said that the page of PUP Senior High announced that we don’t have class. All of our profs got angry to us and they gave a plenty of doings, home works because of the misunderstanding. In that case, we need to be a critical thinker if that information is reliable, accurate for us not to be included as a go with the flow thinker. Search some sources if that was true, don’t rely immediately on what we see in Social Media.

  72. Social Media is, indeed, can be easily manipulated. It creates monster to the people who only believe only to their self. Upon reading the article, i realized that many of us are easily deceived by the fake information where it’s hard for us to choose a credible and reliable source that causes a lot of people to mistrust and misunderstood each other.  In our generation today, people loves to say what is in their minds without prior  a knowledge. They just jump into conclusion because they believe that their opinion and feelings are very important that causes to have an argument between the two people. Especially, the people who have a ‘crab-mentality’, they are the one who makes the chaos even worse, they only believe what is their opinion about a certain topic.

    In my own experience there’s this friend of mine who actually thought that i envy her so much because of the post that i shared on my wall so, she post it in social media and my friends start to think that i do envy her. But i didn’t even think of that way so they messaged me and ask what happened between of us, i explained my side but she just keeps on telling me that i was the one who are wrong. She believed her own idea that i envy her, she didn’t even give me the chance to tell her the whole story.

    My tip for everyone is that you should think first before sharing it to your wall so that everyone doesn’t misinterpret it. Always remember that prevention is better than cure.

  73. The article talks about the effects of social media in our era. Nowadays we tend to use social media in or daily lives. In this case people using it for many purposes like for advertisement, job offering, diary and whatever that happens in their daily life that can be helpful to an individual. Although there are many positive aspects of social media, the negative effects are also numerous. Their level of contentment can decrease, and their likelihood of getting into trouble or being depressed can increase. Also, teens who use Facebook tend to be more narcissistic, antisocial, and agressive. Many forms aof cyberbullying is also a problem and can lead to the victims experience depression and anxiety which lead to suicide.

    My advice is be careful of what you share, ask someone if there’s something bothering you (like announcement etc.) to make it clear in your mind, don’t get involved in any trouble like arguments online whatever the topic, even if its a nonsense just ignore them. And lastly dont be so judgemental to other people online.

  74. I often agree to disagree because of many reasons. First, I would rather be happy than to be right all the time. Second, there’s really no fixed reality, we all just interpret it. Third, we all have different priorities and preferences. I might’ve disagree with the president because I believe in due process but we cannot blame his supporters for believing in him because they might be fed up with the poverty, corruption and crimes in our country. Lastly, I do not believe that one answer can serve for all. I mean every single mind looks at the world differently. And in order to have peace we must respect that we all have our differences.

  75. This article is very realistic and very meaningful as what our social media or media is today. I also beg to disagree on what’s happening in media now a days. It is now very hard to trust the informations we see through online, we do not know whether it is true or wrong. A hoax or a truth. As everybody has an access in the internet, people can actually post whatever information they want whether it is legit or not. One good example is the informations we see in media about the Government. There are a lot of side stories that’s why we do not know what to trust anymore. We do not know what is the truth behind our own Government because we can hide things through media. We can fake things. My experience with aruguing online is that I voice out about my opinion about politics and yes, you cannot please everybody. Not all of us have the same thoughts and ideas that’s why there will be a lot of people that will react bad comments about yours. In order for us to have a better connection in social media and in the internet, we must be sensitive enough with our post and always open our minds with the things around us to avoid hindrances. People may have different point of views yet we have to be open minded enough for the common good. Let us always take the media in a positive side! 🙂

  76. The topic was good, the issue of this article is very interesting. It points to the problem of people relying to their conclusion in a certain problem. Arguing in social media is so natural nowadays, everytime i open my social media accounts. It’s good to see those arguments because many people showing/sharing their opinion. It shows that their are not afraid to defend their own. But in other side, it’s hard to choose what you gonna believe and trust in those opinions because when someone arguing in social media, both sides saying that their opinion is true. It is very helpful to me because when boredom strikes i use to read those people who arguing and defending their own opinion to the topic that their fighting for and i find that a little bit funny haha.

  77. The topic is very interesting because we are all experiencing it in social media. And i would say that infact most us are judgemental nowadays and believing posts in social media is hard to trust. I think the problem we are facing now is because of the bad people who are trying to convince a massive amount of people to agree on their make-believe or fake post just to see human suffering and make fun of it.

    I have experienced arguing at social media when I start selling products using facebook. I noticed while updating my product that there’s person commenting that my product is not worth and made my client buy his own product for a higher price (but still the same product ass mine) and telling them my product is fake. I then started to post about it on the page and people are aguing. Some of them believe me and some judge that my product is fake.

    Nowadays, people tend to be a victim and make fun of it on and on again. Some people are arguing and some audience are feeling good to make a nonsense topic about it that’s why we can’t stop it happen when it begins.

    It is indeed interesting article, our inability to parse between the truth and fiction leads us to worse result,of course it is a matter which we cannot set aside.So we prefer to not to believe on what we sees in social media platform because on certains experience in life or also if we need some clarification cause we need the information, we spend our time to check if it is true or not. I love how the author emphasize that one person judgement cant be broken by another person judgement, cuz it is true. we can only say or express what’s on our mind but not all people will recognize or listen on what you says. Overall it is really great articles.
    Experince: As far as I remember, the one thing that I always experience about using social media is I encountered a lot of misunderstanding with others. I also get informed by a fake news. So its really important to know how to use internet and social media properly.

  79. Social media is functional, indeed, so as the internet that serves as a valuable resource for news, trends, and etc. But something goes beyond the line, we have become dependent on social media when it comes to perception of ourselves and others. People have become comfortable in social media to the point that they no longer question the credibility of information provided in social medias. In just a simple post, there are a lot of interpretations.

    Personally, I have no experience to share because I haven’t posted or shared anything on social media, yet. But let me share my friend’s. I have a friend (he’s gay, btw) who shared a post claiming that his bias K-pop group is the one leading among the rest of the K-pop groups existing, with a caption, “WE ARE ONE”. Not a minute ago after his post, someone commented, “LAOS NA YAN!!” then, my friend, being a great fanboy, defended his bias K-pop group, so as the others did. They kept on defending their own biases that went on attacking each other below the belt, even though they haven’t met and know each other personally.

    People are judgmental in nature, be it a family member, friends or a stranger. People like to assume that they are knowledgeable enough to chime in on our every little thing regardless of how much they actually know. Funny how we often say, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” yet we can scroll through a person’s Instagram gallery or Twitter updates or Facebook statuses and feel like we have a good sense of who they truly are. Keep in mind, that a person’s social media account is made up of what they wish to share, not what all is actually going on in their life.

    We should be mindful of everything we post, like and share on social media. We should be aware of the validity of the information it provided. And also, we should be more productive and actually put our time into good use. Instead of worrying about someone else’s life, focus on yourself. At the end of the day, it is you who ultimately has to live with the decisions you have made, so why should anyone else have a say? Make time for yourself and get to know your self best. If you think you know yourself well, that’s why you judge others, think again.

  80. For me social media facilitates the sharing of ideas and information and the building of virtual networks and communities. Everyone has an opinion and are quick to judge and criticize based on their feelings. But let’s face it, sometimes the opinions expressed in media and/or online are downright disagreeable. It is important to understand that everyone doesn’t think the same and applying acceptance and respect is the key while using social media and employ this info when approaching posts and comments to avoid arguments.

    Personally I never allow myself to engage in such debates or arguments in social media. Why? As I came to realize that time’s wasting away. That it doesn’t really matter as there are seldom germane to life in real time and real existence; which leads me to the next reason why we do not need to argue with someone on social media. Another one is unwarranted stress. In the world we inhabit today we don’t need extra stress as Arguing online (or in real life) has no worth.

    My tip is to take it lightly to prevent any further escalation. Handle yourself, control your temper and master the art of deadma.

  81. Playing dumb is Ignorance but being ignorant is dumber. We are living in a susceptive society where truth is hardly accepted and different point of views in a person’s mind co-exist.

    We have different minds, hence; our hearts are inarguably convinced by such contrasting realistic or unrealistic perspective we based on what we have experienced or believed in. We share, we voice these thoughts in a conversation. We spend too much time discussing or at least debating what we know or have learned on a particular topic to enlighten or be enlightened. That is why the nature of humans is to argue and normally, there isn’t really a right person or a wrong person here. We are just supposed to contribute by entrusting the beliefs we do possess. Unfortunately, too many people, some I know, feel like they need to fight till death do them part just to ensure they are right and above all. That’s when we say a conversation is now malnourished or obese, otherwise speaking, unhealthy. Congratulations! We’ve found a species that is more cancerous than cancer.

    And now, those creatures have found a new place, a new platform to put their greatness on top. Where they can camouflage behind their phones and computers, being a truly coward by not committing to the sufferings of others brought by their hurtful words. Personally, it’s way better before the rise of social media due to the fact that people feel more overpowered by stepping other’s belief and bringing their self-esteem down in an easier and more accessible way. But why? Why is it so necessary and easy for pride to come in first? Why is it a must to prove something? Why is winning more important than anything else?

    I have a relative who had a tension between my other relative in our family group chat. Religion was the main argument and I’m gonna focus on it. As a person that is more spiritual than religious, I get irritated on how they opened their minds to share their religious beliefs and then suddenly closed it before the belief of others reached their precious minds. I know that we were literally distant but their hearts were becoming more and more because they weren’t hearing each other and they let the emotions heated the conversation. In result, some of my relatives left the group chat and who’s wishing for a broken family, anyway? Maybe them, because they badly wanted to win as if God will bless them for degrading other’s opinions or beliefs.

    For me, they don’t win at all. They just made me realized that man-made, organized belief makes people more distant. What they did was not really a winning. Because there was no respect in the first place. I don’t want to be a hypocrite that I once never become someone like them because I did and saying such hurtful words really haunts me leaving my pillow wet at night. I just hope you consider my perspective here or just agree to disagree.

  82. For me social media facilitates the sharing of ideas and information and the building of virtual networks and communities. Everyone has an opinion and are quick to judge and criticize based on their feelings. But let’s face it, sometimes the opinions expressed in media and/or online are downright disagreeable.

    My tip is to take it lightly to prevent any further escalation. Handle yourself, control your temper and master the art of deadma.

  83. The internet is a place where you can express your thoughts, ideas, or even opinions about something. As a result, debates or arguments about a certain topic can occur. Anyone from around the world can share his or her idea about a certain topic, expected having a different perspective on the said topic.

    Most of the time whenever i use facebook, i always see arguments between political views. One of my relatives even experienced receiving hateful comments and death threats for expressing his side on the said topic. This goes to show how some filipinos do not respect each others belief on a certain thing, they only listen to their belief but not giving a chance to understand others.

    In my opinion arguing online is a waste of time, especially here in the Philippines. As much as possible try not to butt in on debates/arguments between narrow minded individuals. And try to respect each and everyones belief.

  84. I concur on what the author wants to convey on his article. It is indeed that social media is very significant to us because it plays a big role on our daily routine. Take time to think, how long or how many hours did we always spend on a day just scrolling around media? Social media was created to which users share information, ideas, and other content, in short we build online community for us to connect to each other but nowadays, it is hard to digest and believe on the things we see on social media. Why? Because most of us were now aware of the spreading of fake news or we recognize some information are just hoax, which is a good thing. Personally, I have trust issues so I always want to make sure of something before I acquire it. But, as what the author said on his article, because we are now conscious of the idea that not everything on the internet or social media were true and reliable so we tend to doubt first, next is we formed this mindset that we cannot really trust information on any social media platform and last is until we came to the point that just literally scroll around media and ignore all the news or information plus we judge and criticize it immediately even though we don’t really read or understand the content. So, being aware about spreading fake news has somewhat disadvantage because you doubt and disagree on everything when in fact we cannot gain anything of not taking any risk, right?

    Just like what happened with others, I almost deceived by the fake news of “walang pasok announcement” because that time I really craving for it because I need a day to rest but as soon as I verified it and found it as hoax, I really got bad mood that time, I expect and in the end I just got very sad. Well who wants to be fooled? No one.

    So here’s my tip to everyone, Don’t be “advance ako mag-isip” always, I mean you don’t judge a book by its cover right? Before jumping into conclusion, why don’t we verify it first? It’s just two things, first is “Bakit ako matatakot?” why be afraid of something that cannot harm you if you do it in a right way? Don’t waste information that can have or give impact to your life. Make time to research and find factual evidence. Second is “Wala na finish na” in which means if it is “obvious ba?” a hoax, or the source is not reliable, why waste your time reading that information? Don’t come to the point that you believe so much and do things that can put you in danger. Choose wisely! But whatever we choose, “malakas naman ho yung guardian angel ko sa likod”, “Paano ko nasabi?” because think of this, choose the first one you gain something, choose the second one you also gain something in a way that you learned from being deceived by the fake news, next time keep in mind that you verify it first. And also tip if you are the source, don’t be part of “mga bobo” , if you disseminate information, make sure it is nothing but the truth and it has a factual evidence, don’t give us an excuse of “umiral siguro ang kademonyohan ng aking kamay” because that is nonsense. Be remind of the famous rule in the internet, “Think before you click”
    Note: I used famous lines in Philippines memes to provide tips in a unique way. Memes are sometimes a humorous image that has a piece of text that is very trendy in social media.

  85. People have their own judgement in every situation, agreeing to disagree means coming to an understanding with someone you have a difference in opinion, this may mean a debate on what you believe and what the other does, all people have different opinions depending on the topic that they’re talking about even in social media many people are talking about a certain popular topic depending on what the trend is today they are debating and exchanging opinions on what the other believes and does not but that does not mean that the other is wrong and the other is right. Opinions can be based upon emotion, preference, experience or all sorts of other variables. It’s just a matter of preference and it is better to just recognize and respect each others opinion.

    I’ve been into ‘twitter war’ so many times before and sometimes, although I know that it was an immature act or it was very unpleasant to someone’s eyes who’s also seeing it, I still keep on replying on my someone’s tweet especially when I have to defend myself. Sometimes It’s very hard to control ourselves to not reply especially when we know that we are right. But sometimes at the end of the fight, I realized that I should’ve known better and I should’ve not fight them back because it’s better to just keep quiet or just send them a message in private.

    Social media plays a big role in our life today, we rely too much on social medias and even spend hours just surfing. And I just want to remind everyone that we can still be happy without hurting or judging others. Because social media today became so toxic, everyone has something to say even if it’s not needed or they keep on bashing someone. We should also stop spreading fake news because we’ll not know what might happen to someone if we keep on sharing fake news. If you are a social media user, please use it properly.

  86. The content of the topic was good, it discusses on how people agree and disagree in an issue because everyone has its own perspective ideas and beliefs since the social media became a platform to express of ones feelings or perspective and the other one disagree on that kind of post or what it result as a argument or debate through social media which is very not appropriate to look at people who doing this is mostly are the narrow minded, another thing is that it shows how the new media or social media affect this kind of matter because of lack in understanding on both side.

    I dont have any experience in arguing on social media

    Tip on that is to respect one’s perspective and let them be on what they wanted to think dont waste time for the useless arguments.

    There is always someone who is wrong on the internet. The worst thing to do is to try and correct them. People nowadays just throw a comment or thoughts about the topic without knowing or clarifying the story behind.
    Internet is accessible worldwide. If people argue through internet other people are able to see that they are arguing. Example is facebook, if someone post a thing that she/he wants and someone misunderstood about the post, they attack quickly and say any words without knowing the story behind. People just have their opinions even if it is right or wrong. But make sure that your opinion is good to avoid having argument with someone. Remember that you should think before you click when using Social Media.

    My past experience in having argument through internet is in facebook. I don’t argue through comments or any post in facebook but only in messaging. Someone misunderstood what I say and I don’t even know what is wrong with my though it doesn’t have any bad words or unnecessary words that I send. To stop the argument I just say to that people is to calm first and listen to me then I explain what is it all about to make that people clearly understand what I’m saying. So that people get my point.

    Tips to avoid such occurrence, Is first to block that person for an hour to take time to calm and stop the conversation to avoid throwing words that may hurt each other. Second is we should apply being media literate at all time. And last is “Think before you click” to avoid someone misunderstood of what we have shared through social media.

    I think that arguing or debating with someone on on internet to prove a point doesn’t really mean you are or someone is smarter than the other. I mean yeah, you can comment about anyone but we all have different interpretations of something. Proving your point myight be opposing someones idea. You can win on your debate with someone but cant actually let them think like you.

    I had encounter this kind of scenario once or twice in the span of my existence, I was scrolling thru my newsfeed like my usual routine then I found a hate comment on someone i love, Marvels to be exact. Saying something like, It’s not good ,etc. I was butthurted so i tried defending it. But it didn’t end well, because the commentor was one sided, he/she was bias. He/she only thinks that his/her comment was the only good conment on that post. Well, to cut the story I just stopped commenting on the post and ignored because he/she is just plain toxic, maybe a troll to trigger some people which eventually triggered me.

    So on that experience I would like to tip everyone who is thinking to have a debate on the internet to just ignore it. Move on because nothing is going to happen in your life if you just get butt hurted every once in a while. If you grt triggered with a comment or a post just simply ignore,block,hide,report it. Just don’t try to argue with someone on the internet.

  90. Social Media is becoming more toxic nowadays because people usually post nonsense or what we call “mema” that’s why i don’t really believe everything i see online unless it is proven. I believe that Social Media is a platform for the purpose of expressing an opinion or sharing ideas and information but let us also consider the possible consequences of what we share online. Be responsible enough in using Social Media because there are still many people who rely on it. Don’t spread fake news and information without enough supporting details. Use Social Media wisely!

  91. Many users in social media can deceived other people by doing negative things in front of their technology or gadgets rather. Lots of issues can be seen in our newsfeeds when we used social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, etc. Some of the news that we’ve seen in social media is the thing that we might believe or not, but I know that everyone of us are victimized by those fake news that is strayed all-around the sites. Clicking those impossible news that they say it’s possible but it’s not. Even though social media is 50% helpful for us, there is also 50% that the social media is unhelpful for us. Tips for not being victimized by click baits or fake news in social media is just search and see if this news were true, use hypothesis testing or just ignore everything that is doubtly true or fake, and always think and have a presence of mind using social networking sites.

    This article share what we must know using social media, yes social media has a big benefit to people specially when communicating but it has also a cons that will affect us as a person it can connect misguided people together, further fueling negative attitudes and beliefs.Anyone can be an authority figure to us. All they need to do is to express an opinion that seems to affect us and to carry some weight with us.Young people also are impressionable, eager for acceptance, and relatively inexperienced, which can cloud judgment. Like my experience, I am a fan of this Kpop boy band EXO and someone posted that he don’t understand why some are idolizing Kpop bands when they do not understand hangul (Korean) language so I commented and share my “own opinion” for them to know my side as a fan but I recieve harsh words, I chose to let them because the argument also won’t stop. My tip is please do look the opinion of both sides, and don’t close your mind to people who also share their opinions be open minded and do an argument with full knowledge.

  93. At this time, people has their own choice to decide on what they want. Everyone can have their own opinion based on what they see and hear because this is a judgemental country.

    In fact, everyone has an access to any piece of information they want. We all know that there is a lot of advantage and disadvantages that surrounds us. Social media is use for having an excellent communication to our friends, family and others. It is used by reminding us of what is happening around the world. Moreover, it can cause trouble for the students and others like losing focus in some things. It can be an advanatge for finding an additional detail though it can also be a disadvantage for wasting time. As a good student, I use the social media into a positive way because nowadays it became a distruction for everyone. Also, I often use social media to send files and communicate with my teachers and fellow classmates.

    To conclude, let us use the social media as a guide for our success. We must work and change our perceptions about it and just be positive in every situation especially if it is public that can let a lot of people see it. Let us always be attentive and responsible for every actions we do.

  94. in the internet, especially in different social media sites that people usually have, it is common on the users that they, we rather don’t rely on the information seen on the internet. for a reason that everyone can give information, even with people without credentials to do so. because of that, people can see that and can be fooled by it.

    with my personal experice, alike with what you experienced. I was fooled with an announcement for suspension because of a bad weather. the post I saw said that there will be no classes the next day, it was reposted by a friend but when you look closer it has the same month and day but the year was 2017. It gives me false hope. sad.

    in my opinion fake information is inevitable most especially in the internet. all we need to do is have a good reasoning and judgement with the information that comes in. make a research, if necessary, look for other related posts by the credible pages or person. I’m not telling you not to trust, just choose who to trust (hugooot hahaha)

  95. Social Media became a platform to express of ones feelings or perspective. It has a big effect on most of the people in today’s generation. Because of being addicted to social media, they tend to use it in an improperly manner. We do have this saying “Think before you click” because on social media, once you post something online, it cannot be undone. Even though you deleted it, there are still some people who’ve already saw what you have posted. Some people will even take a screenshot about what your post is all about that will serve as their so called “receipt”.

    I have this experience arguing online when I bought a product because of its cheap price. When I already received the product. It proves to me that the product really has its good quality. I commented on their post and said that the product that I have received is really good and I will surely recommend that to others. After an hour (I think), there is this one person who tend to disagree on my comment. She said that I am just the conspirator of the seller to comment positively to attract more customers. I. Am. Shookt. She told to her next comment that the product that she have received has damages and the seller didn’t even accept to refund her money. After that, I understand what she is trying to point there. She already judged the seller (and also the product) because of her experience. But yet, my comment is just my opinion, and based on my experience. I’m not trying to offend anyone here.

    Here is some tips: 1. DON’T BE TOO AGGRESSIVE. Take it easy on people. You have to chill. Just chill. 2. STOP BEING JUDGMENTAL. Don’t be a critic. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it. 3. WHO CARES? Just let it go and move on. You have more important things to worry about. 4. MISUNDERSTANDING. Arguments can develop on the internet because of a misunderstanding. If you see this happening, back off. It doesn’t matter what they say anyway. 5. IT’S JUST A WASTE OF TIME. Don’t waste your precious time arguing with strangers about things that doesn’t really matter.

  96. Vito, Miguel Carlo C. INF 182

    Base on my own perspective arguing about something with someone on social media doesn’t have any benefits at all because both parties will not be able to accomplish anything hollistically. If you’re educated and well equipped with knowledge, you will not waste your time towards insignificant matter. In the other line, maybe oneself can prove or validate his/her stand by stating their own perspective and feelings, but then again it will not be beneficial or helpful for the two individuals.

    I have experienced reading arguments on social media specifically in Facebook. It was a post in a page that was supposed to be funny, but there are just some people who doesn’t have any humor. One side was taking the post politically but the other is just seeing it for a joke or something to be laughed at. They were arguing about something that was just supposed to be laughed about. I mean, they both have a point but can’t they just laugh about it and leave? Well, that is my experience.

    I personally haven’t experienced this kind of situation but my tip to anyone planning to do this kind of action is just to ignore it and move on. You cannot accomplish anything by being “smart” on social media because you will just be smart shamed. If you are really educated you will not waste your time on this kind and get on with your life. There are many things that needs solving rather than a post that was supposed to be laughed at. That is all.

  98. We all know that social media is one of the way to express one’s opinion. Each of us has their own perspective on something. I think its better to check the information first whether it is true or not. If someone agreed with that post and the other one disagree, it may look like a debate or something. I don’t have anything to share social media wars like that because i tend to keep my mouth shut in order for me to be safe in arguments. But this article really burst whats on my mind. To add, arguing on social media without further investigation doesn’t have any benefits. We should not believe on something unless it is proven.

  99. Indeed, it is true that people nowadays have more courage in sharing their thoughts, stand, and opinions on almost everything. I believe that their protection behind a screen is a huge factor that influences this new-found bravery. A couple years ago, I only witnessed debates in a heated discussion inside the classroom. Arguments have mostly been about the underlying message within a literary piece, who the real National Hero is, Noli Me Tangere or El Filibusterismo, the best international artist, and a ton more that are far from the depths of today’s premises. Now, people are seen fighting in social media, publicly displaying their sides for validation from their audiences. The masses see the winner as the one with more likes, retweets, shares, reposts, positive replies, etc. I firmly believe that the courage of my generation in using social media as a means to speak out and be heard brings more good than harm; however, there are netizens who equate the entirety of an individual’s being to a belief they deem wrong and unacceptable. There is always a fine line between a substantial exchange of arguments and toxic attacks of ideals and perceptions. I understand when this happens to a netizen whose viewpoints are widely inhumane and immoral but it even those who share personal opinions on food, clothing, and services are publicly shamed by those who think they know best.

    There came a time when the talk of the internet was Kyle Viray, a Thomasian who physically abused his girlfriend throughout the course of their relationship. Abuse is and will always be a sensitive topic for me because I witnessed it firsthand. With that, I could not help but voice out my strong hatred towards Viray and the University of Santo Tomas administration for just giving him community service as punishment. I used Twitter as my platform.

    My tweets were supported by a great number of users. That was why, to my surprise, one person backlashed. This particular person tried to make a point that Viray was not his mistakes; that he was a nice and genuine guy outside abuse. More to that was he cussed me for being judgmental by hating on him all because of that. It was as if physical abuse could be justified by so-called goodness of character unrelated to it. My buttons were pushed but I retaliated calmly and with utmost respect. After all, dimwits tend to close their minds even more when they are talked to with anger and impatience.

    It took three exchanges before he left my notifications list. Ignorance is definitely one of the toughest opponents. Realizing that there was not much I could say to change his twisted perceptions, I shrugged it off and went on with my usual Twitter session. It’s most definitely a pain to try and educate people like him but it’s a burden I choose to carry for as long as I still have the words to possibly change their mind.

    There is nothing wrong with voicing out the realities going on inside your head. For as long as you stay open to those of others and you respond with class and kindness, heated online arguments could be avoided. No matter what, it’s important to choose to be the better and bigger person. The essence of being the one with a more open mind is endless. In today’s time, no one will take what’s in your spoon if you shove them in their throats. With that, we must consistently be patient and understanding of where other people are coming from. That way, we can feed our thoughts to each other gently and little-by-little.

    A peaceful online environment is not impossible.

  100. This topic is very relevant specially here in our country, Philippines. Everyone can express their own opinion because of freedom of expression. Every action, opinion, even beliefs of each person that is different to others are some of the controversial issues that keep on making noise in social media. In social media, people react in every situation that involves politics, some arguments are acceptable and obviously some are not. I also experience to argue with others, but in a good way. We share our own knowledge, we contradict each others opinion in a very respectful manner and lastly we argue based on our topic without bringing our own personal issues. As a matter of fact, arguing with others is not bad at all, you can also learn and discover new knowledge and facts. Let us all accept that there are some people that will contradict our opinion, to handle the situation we must argue in a respectful way, avoid bringing a fight in an argument and accept others opinion, don’t put a gasoline that can ignite a fire. To avoid such occurrence, always review your opinion
    It must be acceptable and ethical, lastly, avoid those non-healthy arguments.

  101. (INF-182)
    In today’s generation, many people are getting addicted to Social Media, they spend a lot of their time using their gadgets or any technologies for them to become updated. Social Media has a big influence to us because it (can) changed the personality of many individuals especially the innocent people. Many people are fighting through Social Media even though they fight for another person not for themselves, having that kind of attitude is very immature, and also many people used social media to bashed people and to make some issue about that person. We all have our own lives we don’t need to be include in any other issue of other people.

    I’ve experience this kind of issue during my Junior High School, my classmate hacked my account (and I don’t how he did that) and he posted that (Put**g I** N***) and I get angry about it, because of that I started to chat him and started arguing him because he disobeyed and ruined my dignity as a person he didn’t think about the people (friends) who will see that post, he become selfish that time! And he started apologized and posted that he is the one who did that and not me.

    My advice to all, we need to get more secured in our accounts. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE! We must protect and do not forget your account to logout all the times, to avoid this kind of issue. Also, lessen using Social Media for your (our) privacy.

  102. Very interesting article. Nowadays in the Millennials or Generation Y focused on social media. An individual usually stays at his/her phone for about a whole day. On average, we check them 150 times per day. You only thought you didn’t check social media that often! And speaking of social media, there lot’s of arguments that you can see and once it’s said there will be other side that is against. There will always be an argument, surfing in the internet is very broad, we can encounter different types of people such false news posting. Their posting can come up with such arguments of two sides. Let’s be cautious when surfing in the web because nowadays we can’t just easily trust someone but be intelligent before we give our judgment to something.

  103. Great read. Sometimes, people just doesn’t want their illusions destroyed. Even in the midst of presenting facts, they tend to rely solely on their own belief that they cannot accept new ideas. In contrast to this, why do people often disagree on what they saw or read on the internet? I guess that idea is so different compared to their bland and miserable reality. I mean after all, we post photos, videos, and status updates in social media to create a fictionalized version of ourselves. We reject this world and substitute an alternate reality and they do not want the real one, hence they argue. Lastly, I don’t expect them to agree with everything I say. But I do expect them to know that I have my own view of things.

    In modern life, social media is developing fast. It is used by many people all over the world. Social media is especially very popular among the young. However, there are many young people who cannot control themselves and are addicted to social media. The introduction of social media has changed the world in many ways. It affects each individual in different ways. Today it can be used as a very helpful tool in changing a person’s life, but at the same time cause such conflicts which can negatively impact a person.

    I don’t have experience in arguing in social media because I don’t want to be toxic. Toxic in terms of wasting my time arguing with a certain person that is not worth my time anyway and just saying non sense. I prefer to not get involve in social media because they posted something because they want to be heard and they want a reaction. Responding to them right away shows that you care about what they have to say.

    Tip: Even if you feel that the comment is unfair and uncalled for, don’t leave an angry reply. This will make things worse and you will lose your credibility in front of other people that might see your comments. Stay classy! And don’t forget that social media can go viral really quickly. Sometimes you need to look at the context in which a comment was made to avoid misinterpretation. Don’t just jump right in the middle of the conversation. On social media and generally in all online dealings things can be misinterpreted quickly, unlike when talking with someone face to face when you have mimics and gestures to help you understand what the other person is trying to transmit.

  106. This article was amazing it shows how to uses social media in our lives. Sometimes social media having some negative issues like fake news. People use social media as a tool of their own lives based on their expressions, feelings, and opinions. And also gives ideas to them.

    This is a good article to read because, nowadays, social media is somehow a source of unreliable news or something like that, that we see when we are surfing. For me, Social media is also the reason why some people believes one-sidedly on a specific issue, what I mean is, they just depend on what they saw in the internet or in social media. They’re not trying to search more about the issue because they thought that the social media is a reliable source.

    I dont actually have any bad experience about this kind of topic. But, sometimes, I see some fake news posted on social media like, “#WALANGPASOK ALL LEVELS”. I dont rely on what I see on a post, I just depend on what my School annouces.

    If you want to have a good reliable source, dont just depend on what you see on the social media, try to search more. There are sites that could give you a good details.

  108. Arguing online is been opinionated by two parties. Some of them are saying the truth, and otherwise are not. We could only know the truth by understanding and judge the answers of two parties. Just like a certain event or happening in social media, that one of my friend get involved, why? Because people or the citizens of facebook, created an issue about him and a basketball player who is more and more taller than her in their picture. People created a meme of “Kasya, pero di kinaya”, they symbolized a meme like that. As one of her friend, we knew the true story about that picture. My friend became a fan of that said basketball player. We replied those comments from their bashers, although it is not right to fight with other people whether it is in person or in online debate, we still need to correct some issues about it. So as a suggestion, we should placed ourselves on the safe house that those bashers or haters will never find you, and get some thing that can offend you.

    This article informed us that in this generation most of the people always have their own criticism in their surroundings specially in the social media. Where in with just a simple mistake that you’ve done, mostly if you’re fame expect to be judged by people’s thoughts about you. No matter how good you are, no matter how many good things you have done for the people around you, no one is exempted when it comes to criticism. As I experienced, one time I was just scrolling my news feed in Facebook and then there is a post that hooked me because the topic there was my idol, an NBA player, after I’ve watched the video I leave a comment saying that “still the best for me, the UNDERRATED player” and then after a few minutes many facebook user replied on my comment that that player sucks and still doesn’t have ring even though he is a good player. Are you serious? That’s just my opinion and I dont care even if he’s not the best player, but for me he is the best and also I appreciate all of their greatness, and also be practical that not every one of us is always strong we also becomes weak and we need others to become strong, but if the other people makes you weak then motivate yourself to become stronger and prove to everyone that you gave your very best in everything. For me the only tip that I can give to the netizens like me who was also involved in the internet arguement is that dont mind those people because we’re not the only one using social media they are also using it, just be humble dont talk too much, maybe we know a little bit of information on the topics we’re viewing but they have more information than us, just join the comment section readers and laugh those shits who are arguing with their rude comments.

    Social Media helps us to be updated and not get left behind from the latest news. It is also almost a necessity because it also serves as communication. But communication online is not always a good thing. This article showed that we tend to give our own perspective and opinions online, but we are not ready for what other people’s opinion on your own criticism. It all ends to an argument that can easily reflect yourself as a person. ALWAYS REMEMBER, that lots of people using social media are not afraid of what will they say online, because they only face the screen itself. It is also a weapon of false news and makes everyone informed incorrectly. BE WISE and ALWAYS THINK AHEAD of what people will say to your comments on such topic. As they say, THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.

  111. Social media really has a great influence on expressing each of our opinions. It is an electronic platform that let the users to create and share content/ information or to participate in social networking. This is where everyone can express their thoughts or opinions. Though we cannot please everyone, you cannot convince everyone to agree with your argument. The example that I have seen is the fandom wars where they fight with each other through social media, with lots of disagreements. It’s true that we cannot control others mind. Every one of us has different opinions and experiences that lead to having different perspectives in life. Somehow, disagreeing in others opinion is not bad at all, in the fact that you’re just expressing your own thought and it may help others to learn new things/facts.
    In my experience Honestly, I don’t remember anything about me replying or commenting on others post on the internet since I’ve seen a lot of online arguments (like outsourcing secrets, swearing etc.) and I don’t want to simulate them since I know that it won’t cause anything good. Though there are times that I don’t agree on the post on the internet I don’t comment/reply on it, instead I’ll just tell my relatives or friends about my opinion.
    My advice on how to avoid
    • Verify and analyze the pieces of information you’ve seen before spreading it.
    • Don’t be too gullible.
    • Make use of social media for spreading good thoughts and positivity not war.
    • Don’t believe in the information you want to hear. (It doesn’t mean it’s true)
    And of course, the last thing; this may be very common but it is very relevant and important to remember;
    • Think before you click/post.

  112. There is always someone who is wrong on the internet. The worst thing to do is to try and correct them. People nowadays just throw a comment or thoughts about the topic without knowing or clarifying the story behind.
    Internet is accessible worldwide. If people argue through internet other people are able to see that they are arguing. Example is facebook, if someone post a thing that she/he wants and someone misunderstood about the post, they attack quickly and say any words without knowing the story behind. People just have their opinions even if it is right or wrong. But make sure that your opinion is good to avoid having argument with someone. Remember that you should think before you click when using Social Media.
    My past experience in having argument through internet is in facebook. I don’t argue through comments or any post in facebook but only in messaging. Someone misunderstood what I say and I don’t even know what is wrong with my though it doesn’t have any bad words or unnecessary words that I send. To stop the argument I just say to that people is to calm first and listen to me then I explain what is it all about to make that people clearly understand what I’m saying. So that people get my point.
    Tips to avoid such occurrence, Is first to block that person for an hour to take time to calm and stop the conversation to avoid throwing words that may hurt each other. Second is we should apply being media literate at all time. And last is “Think before you click” to avoid someone misunderstood of what we have shared through social media.

  114. In this wolrd we always rely on technology and this technology have an access in internet by using the Internet there are many sources that is spread out in the internet and that’s why people have thier own beliefs or they have thier own definitions that’s why they have their different opinions in what happen in social media, they’re sharing their thoughts and beliefs. In using social media you need to be careful because anytime you will be judged, there are many people that is judgemental because of their beliefs. You are the only one that needs to be careful in posting in social media.

  115. People really tend to disagree especially about issues that contradict the things they believe all their lives. It is hard for people, including me to just believe something odd which seem to lack credibility. We are wise enough to no longer believe easily everything we see in social media probably because of some bad experiences such as unrealistic advertisement and fake news. However we need to be open minded because we might miss something if we fixed our perception about things, the world is constantly changing, so shall our ur thoughts be. Our mind is like the duck, why should we keep it in the land if it can also fly and swim? Our thoughts are free to enjoy to explore the world without settling easily. My experience about this is when I posted on social media that I’d rather watch series than to exhaust myself joining a religious procession in our province, I was expecting some violent reaction because I know issues about religion triggers almost everyone. What I learned from that experience is that people are really blinded by their own thoughts that they refuse to listen for new ideas and think rationally. I also learned that it I better to be tolerant than to get myself involved in any issue where nobody wins. After all, they don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. If we want to people to agree with us, we need to agree with them first just to show that we are open minded and they should be, too.

  116. Honestly, what’s written in this blog reminds of Crispin Maslog’s article (I’m not certain if that’s his name) about misinformation. If I’m not mistaken his article suggests, what are the things that we should do to prevent misinformation to spread. Do we need to professionalize the bloggers who disseminates information or educate the people who receives it? And I think he’s right but we know that doing these two is quite impossible.

    Personally, I haven’t experienced arguing or debating online and I’m not sure why. Maybe, it’s because I’m not the type of person who loves to rant about random things online even on twitter ( that I barely use). However, it doesn’t mean that I am not a victim of this so called “misinformation”. To be honest, I am not the type of person who’s active on social media which is a medium to be aware of the current events nowadays. I barely even scroll down on my facebook feeds that’s why what I read is what I believe in. Basically, I’m one of those people who jumps into conclusion even if I know nothing that were described in the blog ( I know, I’m sorry). Yes, I am one of them but not like them I’m not brave enough to argue online without knowing anything. I think, even if I don’t lack in information I still wouldn’t argue online because I know that it’ll just do no good to me. Still, I will share my experience that is somehow relative in this situation and an instance of this is my view regarding Duterte’s administration. Base on people’s rants and the news that I have watch about our president. Regarding war on drugs, inflations etc. I easily had my stand against Duterte that I even end up saying bad things about him ( I didn’t go beyond saying things out loud to my friends and family in person). But recently, as I’ve watch a commercial in our television about Duterte’s build build build project it instantly brought senses in my mind. And I think that’s the time where I realize how great Duterte is, not because that’s what I heard, saw nor read but base on my own perception. I guess, from the perspective of those not that educated person about things people can’t blame us from being like this because I believe that the time where they will have their own analyzation like me will also come to them.

    Instead of sharing experience about arguing online maybe it’s time for me to share some tips on how to avoid being in this situation especially that I haven’t been there. First, checking the reliability of the information. Before you believe on what you read you should check first if the person is credible of sharing this kind of information either if she’s a professional in this field or it’s base on her own research and experience. Next is the infamous quote “think before you click”. I know you heard this a lot of times and it’s not quite unique anymore still, many people aren’t doing this. Many people are not thinking carefully on what they’re typing in their keyboards. If what they saw pluck something in their mind they will immediately say things against it just to vent out whatever they are feeling. Which is not good so we should always remember that we should refrain ourselves from doing anything that we might regret doing especially if we’re under the spell of feeling an extreme emotion whether happiness or anger. But in case you’re already in this situation you should take accountability of whatever you did. If you found out you’re wrong then admit it. If you’ve done something bad apologize and do something to correct your actions. Another thing, before you post something you should also consider if the medium that you’re going to use is appropriate to what you’re going to post. Lastly, if you don’t have anything nice to say, just shut up and keep yourself from blurting it out. If you want to comment something, you should in a constructive way. Start by highlighting the points that you think is good then elaborate what are the things that the person needs to improve. We should be considerate in everything because everyone have their own battles in life and who knows you might just add in to the struggle that the person is going through.

  117. Based on what I’ve read, I think you can’t blame those people who doesn’t believe easily on what they see on internet. There’s fake news everywhere you go in social media. People learn from their experiences whether its good or bad. It’s hard to believe in something if you experienced something terrible in it. It’s really hard to trust on what you see in social medias. I have this experience where I bought something to an online store which I thought is trusted and legit. When I sent her the clothes that I chose, it cost me 500 pesos. When I payed the seller, I was confused when she didn’t give her name or the reciever’s name. I had to wait for days before I realized that the seller blocked my IG(Instagram) and took my money. And ever since, I didn’t buy from any online shops even if they have proofs that they’re legit.

    The only tip that I can give to anyone who’s using social media is to be friend/close with the seller or anyone (whenever you buy something online or having transactions)first, if it’s possible and ask for their LEGIT account like facebook. When it comes to posts and articles that is seen online, do not easily believe in everything that you see and check if the article is factual and accurate. Do some research if necessary.

  118. As I’ve read this article and some experiences I can say that social media isn’t reliable as what others believe it is to be. No matter how hard you want to believe on what is posted you will always be hesitated. I experienced this tho, from what I remembered it was because of mocha uson’s blog because she was seen performing in Casino eventhough she’s already a government official. And because she has lots of keyboard warrior fans or followers that was’t aware of the laws regarding being in her position. I have commented that no body is above the law and ignorance of the law excuses no one, she’s getting paid from the tax that our parents work hard and she’s there performing with sexy outfits and giving excuses that she’s a blogger. how can you be so gullible to believe her, she’s a blogger “as what she say” but still getting paid of salary grade 12. So disgusting. After that comment of mine the thread in my comment continuous. To make the story short, I have to delete it. And I realize that people tend to believe with what they just want to believe and disregard facts about the situation if the persons getting involve is someone they idolize. It’s really sad to know that people embrace ignorance just to feel satisfaction.

  119. We lived in a world with full of judgements. as a person, we had our own ideas and of course the choice to choose the best thing. for ourselves. everyone will have their own opinion according to what they see or hear. we cannot blame and tell any anyone about the attitude they have since we as a creature also had a mistakes. In fact, we have an access to any piece of information we want and that is what we call the social media. social media becomes an education to entertainment. it gives us knowledge in everything and used for having an excellent communication to friends,family and others. Also, it is used by reminding us of what is happening around the world though it can also cause trouble for everyone especially the students for losing focus in learning or in some situations. Social media can be an advantage for finding an additional detail although it can be a disadvantage for wasting time in using sites that are not really important.

    The article I just read was definitely informative. And yes, social media is one of the essential thing that we need to feel,
    to understand, to reach, not only our friends, but also our love ones. We post online and share our memories all in one click and your all set. There are times that some people are truly misunderstood by someone else’s post on social media. We were born with different perspectives and beliefs. We are our own identity, and no one could ever possibly change your ways. Arguing online comes naturally if someone sees something irrelevant in a form of hypocrisy like for example the “fake news”, some people are easily get fooled by a false statements on the web, once they get fascinated/mezmerized from what they have seen. Their eyes become glued to it. Base on my experience, There was a post from a facebook group (I’m a member)..a facebook page where WWE fans share their thoughts,insights,and opinions about their favorite WWE superstars
    I’m an avid fan of WWE since 2004, Even at my age, I still watch wrestling right now..I stream online everytime there’s a new episode of both WWE Raw and SmackDown Live, as well as WWE Pay Per Views. Now let’s get back to the main course..
    What was the reason behind the argument between me and the random guy whose also a wrestling fan like me..Here it is: A post was made on that page that stated: “Who is the greatest Champion of all time?”..so then I post a comment on that post mentioning a certain WWE Superstar..and suddenly somebody (not a Filipino I guess)
    replied to my comment saying the WWE superstar I called the greatest is boring, lame, terrible,worst.something like that..We continue to exchange harsh words till the very end..and guess what..I won the battle haha.
    But before I go..I just want to say that if someone you don’t know personally laid waste to your image by saying harsh words..so be it..just ignore them or simply block them on social media.

  121. INF 182 – This article used to inform us on how other people react to some particular things, specially on social media. How they believe or not in some post and how they argue or how they used to deal with it. Arguments occur all the time. Sometimes we call them quarrels. Often they might take the form of debates. Or they could simply be spirited discussions. Whatever you call them, differences of opinion happen all the time. All people have opinions on a variety of topics. Many times those opinions are the opposite of someone else’s opinion. Since opinions don’t have to be based upon logic they can be based upon emotion, preference, experience or all sorts of other variables.

    Only tip/s that I can say is people have their different opinion and it doesn’t necessarily mean one person is right and the other person is wrong.

  122. Today, we are living in a digital world where we can do almost everything online. One example is sharing thoughts through comments on differents issues. One of the most frequently used media in sharing thoughts is facebook. Today, politics is a hot topic on facebook where we can see different people arguing whether what is right or wrong. There is nothing wrong with sharing your thoughts. We just have to respect each and everyones point of view.

  123. The article says about our daily life in social media like all of us can see the other people argue, bash, say’s something bad/awful to the certain person and for me people agree to disagree because they don’t understand the situation they will just jump into the conclusion and some people always see the bad side of the story and if the person catch their attention they will not seek for another story and they will just close their minds and thought that they were right.

    And let me tell you, I have my own experience of having an argue in social media like we talk using messenger and we fought like we didn’t go to school to have some manners and for me it’s not a good idea to have a fight in social media because if that conversation posted on fb twitter or something people might think that you’re the bad guy and some people might think that the both of you is bad and you know people nowadays don’t like to hear someone’s side if their belief is saying “no his/she’s lying don’t believe him/her” and that sucks.

  124. INF182. Social Media is not only there to communicate with others but to get information as well about certain topics, sharing your opinion and ideas and a lot more. Social media has been very relevant to our generation today for it is used by most of the people around the world. The topic was great points to the problem of people relying to their conclusion in a certain problem. Every time I open my social media accounts I always saw people arguing about something on social media. We all know that social media had a huge impact on our society since most of us are so active on our social media accounts. The phrase “think before you click” is very important because other people might get hurt or misunderstand you.

  125. I believe that we have the right choose, a freewill, where we can be or do whatever we ever wanted. So it doesn’t mean that whenever someone told you to be like this or be like that, even though you respect them or they are above on your league, you have the right to do what we want, what our hearts wanted, because that make us free, that make us feel more that we are free.

  126. Why we always agree to disagree its because some of statement that we heard are good in our ears but we dont know what is the impact to us that’s why many people are always regret to their decisions like in elections some senators has expert in terms of speech that’s why all voter’s has their own representative but they regret on what they choose. Sometimes why we agree to disagree because not all disagree are not wrong we think before we click some persons think that we choose the wrong but its not because we know why we choose it and its because we think properly

  127. There’s always the presence of discourtesy whenever we ague over the thought or opinion of others. One’s thought should be respected because it’s their right to give their insights and there’s nothing wrong on giving it. For us to be appreciated, we need to appreciate others too. It’s just a matter of giving and taking the thoughts that comes up both in you and with others. Appreciating such things might leas us to a better inference to an issue.

    Recently, I’ve read a post of a girl on social media stating that she have been catcalled by an ‘Angkas’ driver. She posted proofs, screenshots of their conversation, the driver called her ‘ganda’ and suddenly she became mad about it. The readers of the said post instantly bash her because for them it’s not that offensive and not sarcastic at all. I do think also the same thing, but i also consider her side, maybe she had been to a same scenario wherein she was harassed or something. It’s too early to judge knowing that we don’t actually know the girl.

    It is hard for us to adjust depends on the judgement of others, but it is not necessary for us to be accepted by them. To avoid such non sense arguments or debates, you should always respect others thoughts and analyze the situation well before giving your own opinion. Always put yourself in different perspective before you act, and most importantly, open your mind.

  128. We can’t deny that social media has been part of our daily lives already. We use it in many ways like communicating to our loved ones or just to be entertained and informed about new things. There’s also might be a time in our life when we already have an argument with someone in social media and I want to share one of my experience. Last September there’s a post in Facebook where in a picture of a woman wearing a bralet in a public vehicle was being talked about. As I read on the comments a lot of people there are saying that it’s the women’s fault why they are being abused. So as a woman I can’t help myself to comment about the post because I can’t see that there’s something wrong on what she’s wearing. So yeah I commented that what she’s wearing isn’t wrong especially if she’s happy and confident about it and what is wrong is their mindset that the respect of a person should be based on what he/she is wearing which is definitely wrong and since it was on Facebook where in there’s a lot of people who can see my comment who has different perspectives in life they also reply on my comment and the argument becomes hotter as a lot of peole was getting their selves involved so to stop it I decided to delete my comment because I know that it won’t stop because we have different opinions and they won’t let other people to change their mind. As it happens I learned a lesson that I also want to share with you guys that we should really be responsible and sensitive when we are posting or commenting on social media because there are lot of people who can see it and it might cause an argument.

  129. I have argued with various people over the internet for different reasons.

    First would be the gaming community, fights between gamers are very frequent and is already a norm in today’s society. This is called “trashtalk” where in you degrade someone or throw curses to tilt their focus.

    Second would be on our Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) class where we actually have Politics and Governance. We were tasked to debate about certain topics with given time limit and selected side. During this I was actually really talkative and brought different specific issues, but knowing a debate it will never end from both sides since it was just a game and we did not have studies about whatever the reporters’ concept were in mind.

    I mainly avoid interacting with people during gaming experiences or in life unless it is fairly needed. This will create a less expected action from the people around you. Less talks will create less people that comes and goes in your life. The same with conversations, the less people you talk to, the lesser the need of a conversation and you actually prevented an argument or a debate. However being an extrovert, thinking before saying something will lessen the chances of arguing with the other side together having an understanding and open-minded way of thinking, accepts the reality that there would always be another side of the story.

  130. Its an interesting article, but I have to disagree in some statements such as “People who love to disagree in social media are one whose minds are well fixed by their own thoughts—and will never be changed by anyone.” I have to disagree because in my experience my friends used to be a bunch of misogynistic, DDS fanatic group of people but I helped them (through countless arguments) to see the other side of the spectrum. I truly believe that when it comes to arguing/sharing your point of view it is important to have an understanding as to where they are coming from, not that I am saying I am the most understanding and smart people in my group I am not, academically speaking I am waaay behind compare to them haha. I have a lot of experiences when it comes to arguing online and I personally I don’t think they are petty, I too have an ignorant for so long and believe it or not this app twitter made a huge change in my beliefs and perspective. I leanrned everything there, things that wasnt taught in the school when I was in highschool, the people from my twitter account consists of UP Activists and other non-profit org that we have in our country. The recent “argument” that I had was with my close friend whose a DDS personally, you can be a DDS or an anti or an activists what important for me is emphaty not only for our people but also for our country. If all people really cared about our country I bet we wouldn’t elect celebrities, incompetent indiviuals to run in our congress. This friend of mine insists that Duterte brings a billion dollar deal for our country so we just have to forgive him for his lousy nasty mouth and languange, of course i have to disagree because actually I don’t even know why would I need to explain to him why is it not acceptable but I guess we really have diff perspectives. For me, i will never get tired of explaining to people why we have to see the other side and we shouldnt settle for things that was taught in the classroom. For the tip, don’t attack people personally stay on the topic and remain calm it will irritate them haha.

  131. This topic is very interesting. Arguments occur all the time. Sometimes we call them quarrels. Often they might take the form of debates. Or they could simply be spirited discussions. Whatever you call them, differences of opinion happen all the time.

    All people have opinions on a variety of topics. Many times those opinions are the opposite of someone else’s opinion. Since opinions don’t have to be based upon logic — they can be based upon emotion, preference, experience or all sorts of other variables — people will often have differences of opinion and it doesn’t necessarily mean one person is right and the other person is wrong.

    If a badger thinks the Badger Street Boys is the best band around and a monkey prefers Juan Direction, there’s no clear right or wrong opinion. It’s just a matter of preference. In these situations, it’s better to recognize and respect the other person’s opinion without arguing, fighting or causing hurt feelings.

    Agreeing to disagree doesn’t mean you have to give up your opinion. To the contrary, you simply keep your opinion to yourself, recognize others’ right to hold a different opinion and agree not to argue about it!
    This are the some tips:
    Focus on Facts
    Don’t Get Personal
    Recognize the Good
    Remember to Listen
    Know When to Move On-
    Perhaps one of the most important pieces of respectfully disagreeing with someone is knowing when you need to just call it quits and move on.

    No, it’s not always easy to swallow your pride and walk away — particularly when you feel strongly about your side. But, sometimes it’s the best thing you can do.

    Disagreements are inevitable. But, there’s definitely a wrong way and a right way to present your own arguments.

    Implement these six key tips, and you’ll be able to disagree in a way that’s effective, professional, and always respectful.

  132. Nowadays, new media is our source of information. Because of internet we have the chance to engage with different people and gain information “easily”. Easily because by scrolling on your feed even if it is facebook or in twitter they will be post,tweets and ads that is posted that sometimes we conclude that it is a fact or a valid information. But, us people have different perspectives in life, beliefs, traditions and personality. With these, it happens sometimes that when we give are own opinion it lead us to arguments in social media whenever we see a post that is differ for what we know. Todays technology is advance and the users can easily put there opinions on some issues that they read online. Even tho sometimes they “bash” and act rude.

    One of my experience is when I share a video of a woman with a Golden Retriever dog and it attacked an Aspin. One of my friends commented on the said video and his comment was like this “di naman niya dapat nilalakad sa matao yan lalo na kung di niya kayang awatin. Kawawa naman ung isang aso” then after a hours some guy that I didn’t know replied “di naman kasalanan ni ate yung nangyare…” and comments from them continued as if they are trying to force each other that one of them is right and the other one is wrong. “Keyboard warriors” people who are arguing online when in fact they know that social media is use by billions of people and other people can read their argument. The argument went on until I decided to just delete what I shared.

    For me, the first thing we should consider is the validity and factuality of the information. If you know that it is misinforming the public then try to explain and give your opinion in a nice way. If other people is contradicting your opinion then leave it. You will never win to close-minded people. A wise man knows when to speak up and use silence because arguing sometimes is useless if you are talking to low-minded people. Respect one another and communicate in a friendly and nice way. “Think before you click” keep that in mind because your words can influence other people.

  134. Most people would dispute that there is no such thing as private over the internet and they may be right. The fact is, you can really not convince anyone online to change their opinions. Arguing someone online is very ineffective, dangerous, and can be often be destructive. Because when people argue on the internet, they do not usually resolve an issue or understand each other and they just share their opinions and becoming defensive. Especially in a comment sections in news articles, people will agree or disagree about what they have read.
    In my previous experience, I argue with my friends online. We talk about our topic in research, shared ideas and someone disagree that says that she/he is wrong. Tha’s the time that they spout their opinions instead of listening or trying to understand each other. It leads us from misunderstanding.
    To avoid this occurence, the first tip to do is it is better if you and your collegues will talk and share opinions face to face to avoid misunderstanding. Second tip is Use kindness and humility to others. When you disagree to one’s opinion online, use humility and kindness. Do not use bad words or negative thoughts because it will lead this to bad communication. Deal with the issue effectively and open up the door with other person for better communication and problem solving.

  135. Vincent Jonson

    It was a good topic. Its important to have an internet. You really know how to argue sometimes. In my own experience, I experienced arguing online. I wrote a negative comment in a facebook post about basketball. I was bashed online for saying my opinion. Everyone has rheor own opinion about anything. Opinion is powerful because it can change certain situations.
    An opinion is someone’s own idea and understanding of certain things. There is no right and wrong since it is a personal belief and idea.
    We should be open minded and we should respect and understand that not all people have the same opinion as you.

  136. It is the only way to resolve the disagreement. Acceptance of the truth. Well for me, I would rather be happy than prove I am right. And also I do not believe there is one right answer for everyone. There is nothing to be gained by continuing the conversation or argument or there is a potential that something will be lost if the conversation continues.
