Support Groups PracticumPosted: November 15, 2011
For my practicum project I am looking into support groups and the one that I joined was “Loss of a Pet”. I just wanted to share an experience that I had with the support group this past weekend that kind of “erked” me a little. One person who was trying to promote a supposedly up in coming band from Seattle used the group to spam out promotions for the band. This bothered me because this is clearly an inappropriate way to use the site. Then I started wondering am I inappropriately using the site for this project? I thought about it more and more and I really do not think I am. Although this has been a project I have shared personal stories about my old dogs that I do believe have made people laugh and brighten there day when they were feeling down. Therefore, I don’t believe that I am anywhere close to on the same level as those who spam the sites with promotions.
