The squeaky wheel gets the grease is the implied mantra of social media. The title of the cartoon in the RDR this Sunday morning, Social Media Lynch Mob, certainly seems to concur.
Viturperative out of state FaceBook postings regarding the Roswell Animal Shelter and its veterinarian should result in libel cases against the out of state posters who spread the unjustified malicious gossip.
There is absolutely no accountability for the mean and personal attacks being committed via Social Media. Penny Garzarek from Alabama wrote an out of control diatribe describing the conditions at the animal shelter based solely on what she had heard, having never set foot in the shelter. I do wonder why the Roswell Daily Record elected to publish such tripe. Hmmmm, maybe they wanted to expose her and embarrass her in an attempt to stunt future immature and irresponsible outbursts.
Short of making a direct threat, it appears anything goes is the de facto standard for social media communications. Poor people who do these things must not be getting the attention they need at home. Sad way to get attention people. Grow up!
Social media has too much of a bearing on on public perception
