The themes on this blog vary as it focuses on the social and cultural factors that affect the society as a whole. Things that are not easy to talk about because many fear of what others might think of them and how they will perceive them. The various articles chosen show
different problems faced by the society such as race, identity and fighting for what others think is right.
The article of Skin bleaching in Sowetan covers on the dangers of the chemicals used and it is a relevant article to this blog because it focuses on a life style trend but also on race. Articles such as that of Strikers who are looking for better services, such articles have a poor depiction of people, showing them as violent, instead of showing the cause in which they are fighting for, this article is biased and based only on the violence and not the needs of protesters. Another article that is relevant to the theme is that of foreign mothers who are refused help because of their nationality, such issues are relevant to life style and social factors such as personal health. Health and race still being a major social factor, the article on albinism is important in showing how people with albinism are treated and that they should be treated fairly instead of being treated like outcasts. Yet on a different note, even though technology is improving, the right to privacy is being ignored and people can hack phones and much cannot be done so people should check their androidmobiles, this has an impact on personal life styles of the society.
An overall view of what the blog is about.
When these articles were tweeted on, there wasn’t any response, which might have been due to people not being interested or not using much of Twitter to raise awareness on these tweets and articles and also not participating in other Twitter users content.
Given the opportunity to tweet again on these articles I would use Twitter more often to follow others, tweet, retweet and like their content so that they could like mine too and also, I would engage in Twitter more often.
