Michael Bublé Biography

Title:
Singer-songwriter
Position:
Con to the question "Are Social Networking Sites Good for Our Society?"
Reasoning:

“I hate social media… You can’t do anything. You can’t get away with anything. Not that that’s what I’m trying to do, but you’re burned all the time.

It’s not just about me. I watch it happen to other people and it scares me… People can say whatever they want and the best part is it doesn’t have to be true. There’s no responsibility that they have to take, there’s no integrity…. It’s blogs. People can write whatever they want about you. Sometimes it can be ridiculous and you can think to yourself, ‘Well, no one will believe that.’ But they do.”

George Stroumboulopoulos, “Michael Bublé: I Hate Social Media,” cbc.ca, Mar. 17, 2014
