How Well Do You Actually Know The People You Friend On Facebook? [Infographic]

first_imgRelated Posts A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Facebook#web alicia eler Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… New research from Nielsen’s NM Incite reveals that knowing someone in real-life is the number one reason people friend them on Facebook. Of the 1,865 adult social media users surveyed, 82% reported that they friend people they know in real life and 41% cite “don’t know well” as the top reason for Facebook unfriending people. How does this data size up against Facebook’s purported purpose of “helping build closer ties among friends”?The Nielsen study notes that the average Facebook user has 130 friends – closer to Dunbar’s number, the number of people you actually know and keep in touch with, which is around 100 to 230. Yet the top reasons for adding friends, after the 82% which say it’s “know in real life,” don’t match up. Sixty percent of people say they add friends because of a mutual friend, whereas only 11% add for business networks. Eight percent add for physical attractiveness. Then there’s the 7% who just want to increase their friend count and the next 7% who are Facebook whores and just friend everyone. When it comes to gender, men use Facebook more for networking and dating, whereas women see Facebook more as a social and creative space. A recent NYTimes article entitled “The Facebook Resisters” took a look at the people who, for one reason or another, decided that Facebook was just too much information for them. One person interviewed for the article clearly explained the alienation that Facebook caused her to feel, saying that she wasn’t calling her friends anymore, she was just seeing their updates and felt like she was connecting when, in fact, she was not. So, let’s recap: A whopping 82% of people add Facebook friends because they know them in real life. On the flip side, 55% remove friends for “offensive comments” and 41% remove friends because they realize that they don’t know them very well. This suggests that most Facebook users don’t really know the people they friend in the first place.last_img read more

Nasheed calls for Missouri Senate committee on gun violence

first_img(Missourinet) A key state senator from St. Louis is calling on Missouri’s GOP Senate leader to create an interim committee to study gun violence, saying it’s a public health crisis. State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, briefs Capitol reporters in January 2018 (file photo courtesy of Missouri Senate photographer Harrison Sweazea)State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, notes 13 children have been killed in St. Louis city shootings in 2019. She tells Missourinet she wants the Senate committee to hold a hearing in St. Louis.“And begin to hear all of the tragic incidents that have occurred due to gun violence from the surviving parents of those children that were killed,” Nasheed says.Nasheed describes the gun violence in her hometown as an epidemic. She’s also calling for increased protection of crime witnesses, saying they are fearful for their safety.Governor Mike Parson (R) signed legislation from Senator Nasheed into law this spring, which gives prosecutors discretion to redact personal identifying information about crime witnesses.Senator Nasheed, who serves as the Democratic Minority Caucus Whip in the State Senate, says by forming a Senate committee now, policies can be ready for discussion when lawmakers return to Jefferson City in January.She says lawmakers must also pass “concrete policy changes” to improve outcomes for police and prosecutors, when they return to the Capitol in January for the 2020 session.“Outstate (rural Missouri), they hunt animals,” says Nasheed. “And in the city (of St. Louis), all we have been seeing throughout the summer is humans hunting humans, killing humans.”Senate President Pro Tem Dave Schatz, R-Sullivan, says he’s open to having a conversation about an interim committee. He says he’ll discuss the issue with GOP state senators next week.However, Pro Tem Schatz tells Missourinet that if it’s about restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners, then it’s a “non-starter” for him.Lawmakers will return to the Missouri Capitol in Jefferson City on Monday for a special session on vehicle taxes. The annual veto session is next Wednesday.last_img read more

CAG slams Maha for poor sports infrastructure

first_imgMumbai, Mar 28 (PTI) The Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) has slammed the Maharashtra government for its “inability” to create adequate infrastructure for sports despite incurring�a huge expenditure of Rs 576 crore, which it said adversely affected the performance of sports persons.As per the CAG report on the general and social sector tabled in the state legislature today, a performance audit�of the management of sports infrastructure�during 2012-17 revealed that even though the Sports Policy�was formulated in 2012 it was yet to be translated in action.Stating that no long-term plan was prepared for implementation of the policy, the report underlined delays in execution of schemes�due to non-acquisition of land, change in design and scope of work, and short or late release of funds.”Due to short release of funds for maintenance and repairs, the infrastructure created�could not be optimally utilised. The functioning of sports academies�also suffered� from problems like less intake,�inadequate coaching, lack of sports facilities�and basic amenities which impacted performance at national, state and international level games,” as per the report.The report blamed the absence of qualified and capable coaches, focussed training, and an inadequate release of funds for the poor performance of the state in sports.The document also reviewed�the expenditure�incurred for constructing sports�complexes, developing playgrounds and gymnasia, sports academies, coaching centres and camps in different parts of the state.”Even after incurring huge expenditure of Rs 576 crore, the sports department was unable to create adequate sports infrastructure and maintain it properly. It was also unable to create coaching�facilities for sportspersons thereby compromising on their performance,” the report said.advertisementReferring to the annual fund of Rs 50 lakh earmarked by the government for wrestling and volleyball in selected divisions under Sports Policy 2012 and subsequent Government Resolutions (GRs), the report said the government failed to organise�mini-Olympic�games at state-level and also failed to set up talim�kushti�kendras (training centres for wrestling) at taluka level.The report underlined lack of initiatives and comprehensive planning in creating sports complexes at divisional, district and taluka�levels.The work on remaining�sports complexes could either� not commence�for want of land or was lying incomplete due to� financial�crunch, as per the report.”The fund flow was erratic and was found not in consonance�with the intended objectives of the Sports�Policy. The share of Sports department in the total budget outlay for the state was only between 0.44 per cent and 057 per cent,” it stated. PTI MR NSK RYSlast_img read more
