Social Media and its Drawbacks

Social Media is a great tool for emergency's and events but sometimes it leads to more confusion and chaos. When a tweet or Facebook update creates a pandaemonium, people jump to conclusions and report or share things which are not true.



Recently the strange drawback effect was felt through out the online and brick and mortar stores when people kept sharing information regarding HP Touchpad; even though the product was long sold out. People were still acting up and sharing information as if it's available.



Every one is not going to use Social Media as a standard. Every tweet, update or share will create something unique and people need to filter out the information correctly so that they themselves do not fall victim to it.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages. " Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows. " The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task. Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.
