05/09 - The Power of Social Networking

How is the new media shaping - and changing - our lives in Louisiana?

Do you tweet, blog, or belong to a network? Millions of Americans already do and they are connecting, communicating and bringing change to the internet and society. Find out how new media is shaping our lives in Louisiana on “The Power of Social Networking” on Louisiana Public Square, Wednesday, May 27th at 7 pm.


What are Social Media?

Social media refer to on-line tools used by people to connect to others electronically. Connections are made through the world wide web using social network sites (SNS) specifically created for this purpose. Popular sites include MySpace, Facebook and Friendster, which are free. The sites are supported by advertising embedded on the pages next to user-generated content, which can include text, pictures and video.

Social networks can be thought of as public or semi-public forums. They allow people to maintain or create relationships and meet on-line for conversation and collaboration. These relationships can be with one person, a few, or many people.

Current Topic

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
