We often heard about recognition at work, but have you guys thought of recognition in the world of internet? Probably 10 years ago many bloggers would not think that anything they say in internet wouldn't be so powerful and influential but recently a Singaporean blogger made it to international news due to something she said in her Dayre (micro blog). Although she made it to the headline for the wrong reasons but we can clearly see the power of social media. Hence we as bloggers or some people said social media influencers do hold social responsibility in the world of social media, we need to be accountable on what we said especially to our followers. I always believe we need to blog with dignity because our blog readers or followers are not stupid and as much as we want to be respected, we need to respect our followers by providing them with honest write up.
And of course the bigger pool of followers you have, the more influential you are ; whatever you said do attract a lot of attention. Like what people said With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility!
