Use Facebook Wisely, Advises Media Lecturer
Facebook and other social media are the results of tremendous advancements in information technology, said media researcher Mahmoud Alfataftah in a lecture offered by the Faculty of Arts on 19 November 2013. They are powerful tools that can be negative or positive depending on how they are used, he said.
Fataftah advised Facebook users to "use polite vocabulary, be careful when posting pictures, provide credible information, and beware of Facebook addiction. Don’t allow it to drag you away from your family, friends and country."
Media lecturer Rawan Mazzawi spoke about how to use the Facebook site for educational purposes, emphasizing the importance of interacting with Facebook as means of self-expression.
