How to be a just and responsible “citizen” in the age of social media

演讲稿全文

可供参加线上英语写作比赛的同学参考

Hello everyone! Today I want to talk about how to be a just and responsible “citizen” in the age of social media.

The way people learn about world events has changed significantly in recent years. It is a worldwide phenomenon that people are utilizing more and more social media platforms as news sources and turning away from traditional media.

A Pew research center survey in 2018 shows that 68% of Americans get at least some news content via social media, with 43% getting such from Facebook. In China, a CNNIC report in 2016 suggests that social media has become an important way for Chinese citizens to gather news, with WeChat and Weibo being the two most prominent platforms.

With the freedom of expression and the vast amounts of information on social media, how we discern and discover the truth becomes more and more important. Becoming a “just”, or responsible netizen is about a responsible mindset, and there are several things we can do to prevent fake news and protect the internet as a safe space for information.

This responsible mindset matters because it stops hate and distrust, and it can bring people closer together leading to a better world. The responsible mindset will also make us better people. As the generation of Chinese citizens growing up with the internet and social media, we all have our share to voice ourselves responsibly on the web in connecting ourselves to the world.

Being a responsible netizen is about a responsible mindset.

Being a responsible Chinese netizen is about having a responsible mindset. Looking back at the past couple of years, we see social media being filled with controversial remarks and radical comments, and different sources will report stories differently.

Take the recent coronavirus outbreak for example. The internet is filled with different sides of the story. Rumors were flying around, comments got more and more fierce, and people were living in a constant state of terror.

The psychological impact of the virus was not directly created by the dire situations of this disease, but it was created by the constant state of uncertainty on social media. Hence it is important for us 21st-century netizens to try our best to grasp the full picture.

It is important to think critically about breaking events like this. With the age of social media, virtually anyone can write news online; and without rigorous procedures to validate the content, readers face the risks of falsifiable information.

Hence it is important to think about the underlying motives behind the news you read. What are the intentions behind what you are reading? Is it to attract higher viewership of their contents? Are there malicious political motives behind the news?

It is also important to think about whether what you are reading is really from a credible source with verifiable evidence. Having this critical mindset would help you become a responsible reader of the information on social media.

Responsible behavior is made through expressions.

As Chinese netizens with a global outlook, we have more access to information compared to the average population. Hence we should try our best to express our objectivity in the knowledge of the world.

Words have significant power in shaping people’s minds. As previously mentioned, uncertainly and radical comments can lead to a negative psychological impact. Hence, when you express yourself online, you should be socially responsible in the way you convey your feelings.

You should take all available sources into consideration when you build your understanding of an event, and you should also stay away from bullying words when you comment on social media. We all have our share to build a more welcoming social media environment.

As Chinese netizens, you have access to information sources that were rarely touched upon by foreign nationals. Hence you have a different (and arguably more objective) understanding of events. Hence you should voice out your difference in opinion in a constructive manner to help the world understand a different viewpoint.

It is through the voicing of these different understandings that the world builds more objective knowledge. This would be beneficial to the world as your “voice of China” can help people get a better understanding of not just our home country, but also the world we share.

In conclusion, it is important that we take our roles in becoming “just” and responsible netizens of China. We should all work together to make social media a more reliable and safer place for information gathering. I look forward to hearing your “voices” from China.

Talent本人有话说

01

针对这个主题,为什么选择这个角度切入?

我觉得这是一个和当下社会很相关的角度,社交媒体的使用,尤其在重大事件发生时的使用,是一件值得研究和商榷的事情。如何正确理性的发声方式非常重要。

02

你又是如何写作的?

先列一个提纲,其中会阐述大概的论点。然后写作的时候直接扩充这个提纲就好,会找一些客观事实的数据(比如说社交媒体的使用情况等等。)

03

文字稿是一次成稿吗?改了几遍?大概写了多久?

算是一遍成稿啦~

04

录制视频,需要注意什么吗?

采光很重要(脸的左右两边应该有相对均衡的光线),然后你的着装也可以展现你的自信。
