Will having gov’t services and elected officials “on the go” make us more or less democratic as a society?  Sounds like a topic for a poly-sci major.  Here I am in a branch surrounded by chatty adults and unruly children.  What to do?  lock myself in a closet?  sounds peaceful.  farewell, cruel world ! 11.5 cosas must be completed !

Three audiobook titles found in the Top Titles section of Hoopla:

People I Want to Punch in the Throat

The 4-Hour Workweek

My Horizontal Life

Idk how Hoopla et al are changing libraries. I only know how it’s changing my library…and my library is in danger of losing lots of funding from the county bc the county thinks that all-digital libraries are where its money belongs.

Examples of social media’s negative effects:

Corporations have discovered that teens can be bought.  For a token amount of cash or brand merchandise teen bloggers with huge followings will endorse products.

People who post their current locations can end up burglarized, stalked or worse.

See MTV’s “Catfish” for examples of people who lie about any and all aspects of their real lives in order to lure others into cyber-relationships.
