We need to be aware of biases and we have to be aware of how we’re influenced by them. It used to be the common belief that social media is all about sharing and not about thinking. Now we’re seeing more people using social media to engage and influence people more directly.
Social media has become an avenue for the sharing and sharing has become an avenue for the influencer. Although, social media has its limits, it has gained a lot of social capital in the past few years and this is why social media sites have had to be careful with how they use their social capital to keep people on their platform.
As social media sites become more influential, more and more of them are getting away from the “sharing is all it is” stance and are beginning to be careful about trying to reach people directly. This is all good news. But with so many social media sites, it’s a matter of who is running the show, and with the number of social platforms, the balance of power among the different entities might be shifting.
Instagram is a great example. Instagram is a huge social media platform that is owned by Facebook, and so Facebook has more say over which posts get shared. But the problem is it’s still Facebook owned by Facebook, which makes it easy to skew a post by Facebook or even block a post by Facebook.
As it turns out, the social media site Instagram is run by an Israeli company called Haaretz. The owner of Haaretz is a former employee of Viacom, and its not hard to see why. The two companies are very different in their approaches. Viacom is very much about content curation, while Haaretz focuses on content distribution.
Like Facebook, Haaretz gets a lot of its content from the Israeli army, as well as the Israeli government and institutions. So it follows that it has a bias against Palestinian terrorists. And it sure as hell is a very active supporter of Israel. If a Haaretz post says “Israel is a democracy” and you have a Facebook account, chances are that one of the Israeli soldiers on the post will be very happy to hear it.
Is that a fair assumption? If Haaretz wants to be a voice for the Israeli government, doesn’t it have to be a voice for Israel? In general, if someone is against the Israeli government, the army, the IDF, or even Israeli citizens, their voice will be silenced, and they’ll be silenced for good.
Well, yes. But it’s not like Israel is going to suddenly start being a democracy. In fact, the Israeli government is not going to suddenly start being a democracy. This is something that is going on in Israel, and it’s not something that seems to be happening in the U.S. for example.
That’s because the Israeli government is not trying to be a democracy. It has its own set of laws, its own constitution, its own courts and even its own army. The government has to maintain the separation of powers and abide by the Constitution. And the army has to obey the orders of the president. In other words, it is not a democracy. And that is why the IDF is not a democracy either.
The Israeli government is a representative democracy.
