Camden/Facebook
Placeholder Image
So-called social media sites on the Internet have proliferated in recent years, and such venues as Facebook are hugely popular with the under-40 crowd as well as many who are over that age. But such sites have their risks, too, as the city of Camden found out recently when it shut down its Facebook page after a number of people had posted comments -- some of them inappropriate -- criticizing the city’s efforts to reach a joint accord with the Columbia YMCA for a new facility in Camden. Unlike traditional media, sites such as Facebook offer few “filters” for their operators to observe or control comments.
