The term Net Neutrality means that all data we use on the internet is treated equally. Right now, everyone on the internet has access to anything they want and any amount of it they want; all for one flat fee a month. ISPs (internet service providers) give everyone the same quality of internet, and the data that goes through the ISP is strictly the user’s choice- besides ISPs only being able to slow down illegal content . Net Neutrality gives everyone a right to equal data, and it ensures an Open Internet. Currently, this means that the people own the internet and no one else.
The issue being debated right now is whether the people still get their Net Neutrality or not. Big ISPs have started to make a stink over the last year, saying that Net Neutrality wasn’t thought up by a legal standpoint; so they turned the case over to the FCC (Federal Communications Committee). What has gone on from there is this: big companies want to make the internet censored and controlled by making everyone pay for ‘special’ services and charging for data use instead of flat fees. The proposal that was come up with is basically that, and is very dangerous because it would let the ISPs take control of the peoples’ internet so that there can be lots and lots of money sucked out of it. If this happened, the internet would be slow for all who didn’t pay ridiculous prices, and many people wouldn’t even be able to access or say what they want online- it would all be up to the big companies.The current issue with Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because we are growing up in a generation where internet is essential. If we do not have proper access to it, then information and our rights is being taken away. The internet has to be a place for expression, learning, and communication so that We the People can take charge and not money-guzzling companies looking to censor and add expense to our lives. The internet was created to be run as an open place, and it was a safe-haven for all who needed their voices to be heard or access to information. Net Neutrality is important for us teens because without it, we will only be looking into a world of big companies manipulating what we see.
Net neutrality is treating all data and devices equally, whichever race, devices, sites, or ISPs you tune into. Net neutrality is important for teens to know about. A lot of things happen on the internet that all teens need to be aware about like cyber bullying and digital discrimination. That is one of the reasons why we have firewalls at school and sometimes at home too. Companies such as Verizon and Comcast are ISPs or internet service providers violate these barriers and stream these websites legally without filtering all of it for users. This corrupts the rule of net neutrality and if that happens ISPs can pay extra to block themselves from using the internet.
This is where the FCC/federal communications commissions and President Obama comes in. The FCC’s job is the government overseeing what people do on the internet. President Obama thinks that shouldn't be any barriers between you and your favorite websites so he formed a plan. He ensures that there will be an open internet that can connect us to the world, but protects net neutrality for everyone. The internet has become everyone’s communication and everyday life, so consumers get to decide what they can do.
Now that you are aware about what Net Neutrality is and how it is being impacted. We want teenagers to know that everybody is going online and that they are going to grow up having problems online. They need to be prepared and if not they will won't be able to fix the problems ahead of them. We should be able to influence others by our opinions on what may be going on as well.
Net Neurality isnt fair. They control our network by easily restricting us on what we can see and charging us. Its not fair for them to take control of something that can be equally divided. Slowing and blocking us users from iternet connection is not acceptable.
Have you been affected by it? Have you ever been watching a movie on netflix and it starts to buffer or it just takes a huge amount of time to load? Then yes, you have been affected by net neutrality. They want you to pay extra in order for you to be put in the ¨fast lane¨.
What can we do? Theirs different things you can do. You can sign pettions and also indepently write to the FCC. The FCC are already taking action. Although these actions wont be effective and will only change a bit.

The internet was made to open new pathways. These new pathways led us to faster and more communication between us, engulfing the society we now live in. Technology is everywhere, and it is hard for many teenagers to find a way to turn it off. It is built into who we are and we should use this as a tool meant for everyone to use, with no hierarchy on the internet. Without net neutrality, it would slow down the world we are accustomed to and keep us from expressing what we want to which should be a right never taken away or made slower for the better of internet service providers.
By not upgrading to the “fastest” and most expensive version of your internet made available by internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon, the regular internet will become slower with new speed bumps. If one were to buy into the more expensive option, it would basically be the exact same internet you started with, just more expensive. This does not benefit anyone other than the service providers. Is this a world that we will know, one where people act only for their own benefit, ignoring what is best for the whole of America?
Service providers would like to filter what you do on the internet. They want to charge you based on what sites you visit and what applications you use and charge you from there. This is simply money against the happiness of the people. Society has become numb to life and has taken away many purposes of living and tries to focus just on advertising and self benefit. That is not what life is about. Life is about doing what makes you happy, and by doing whatever you want. The internet is one place that is supposed to be free for everyone, a place where teenagers can go for entertainment, inspiration, communication, anything. The internet is supposed to be limitless. Don’t let internet service providers take this away from us. If they take away what we do, they take away what we are. I want to live as who I am, and I’m sure many teens are with me.
Net neutrality is a very important set of rules that many people believe should be put in the ¨book of internet rules¨. Basically net neutrality is the rules that would govern the fairness of the internet. Internet Service Providers or ISPs sort of rule the internet right now and net neutrality would govern what they can and couldn’t do. Essentially net neutrality would make sure everything was fair with the internet, no fast lane or slow lanes and no slowing down content if it’s legal. Net neutrality is liked and wanted by numerous people, including our President Barack Obama.
Right now there are a couple problems with the internet, a lot of that having to do with net neutrality not being enforced. Currently the ISPs have been slowing down certain sites and then asking if they want to pay extra for a fast lane. This type of thing happened with Netflix and it got them pretty angry. The ISPs have a serious power over the internet and without these rules they could speed up, slow down, or block content as they wanted.
Now that you know what Net Neutrality is and what’s wrong, I’ll explain why its important for this upcoming generation and the generations after them to know more about net neutrality. Teens these days and even young children go on the internet constantly and it really affects their daily life. Also they are going to grow up and have to deal with these problems. It’s really important that teens are prepared and knowledgeable about the internet and what’s going on with it. If they aren’t and the internet is still part of their daily lives they will just be affected by the decisions made and not be able to participate in fixing it or preventing bad usage. In general as long as they know what’s going on they have the ability and chance to take a stand for what will affect them in the future and now.
Teens should know about Net Neutrality because it teaches them about the internet and what is going on with it. With net neutrality, we are able to have equal access of internet. Not only that, we won’t argue about having faster internet than others. Teens need to know about the equal access and know that their parents are paying the same amount of money. If we don’t have net neutrality, we will have to pay more for faster internet when they will probably trick you into thinking that your internet is faster when it is actually slowing down. Without Net neutrality some web page will be block and that won’t be fair because you will have to pay more to access it. They will make media such as netflix and skype be slow or maybe even blocking it.
Net neutrality is also important to teen because without net neutrality it will affect our education. Teens may be doing their homework and need access to a certain website but can’t get on it unless they pay more. Not everyone is rich so that won’t be fair because some people that are broke won’t be able to afford it when they are trying to get a good education. It also won’t be fair for the person who is paying for your internet. For example your parents. Your parents would have to pay more when they have to worry about their bills and other things that need to be pay off. With net neutrality. we won’t have these problem because everyone will have equal access of the internet and you won’t have to pay more to view a certain webpage.
Teens also need to know that not all internet service provider have net neutrality. That mean that some service provider are charging you for website and faster speed without you knowing. For example Version and Comcast. Not only teens but I believed that parent need to know about this too. Internet service provider like Verizon and Comcast believes that making people pay more for faster internet and website access is better because they are able to control what you can get on. That is unfair and teens should know about these thing so we can prevent these things from happening and maybe checking to make sure they are not doing this to you.
I made all of my text in sans-serif because I found that sans-serif looks better on the web while serif is easier to read in printed works. Keeping that in mind, I made the quote marks and coma more curved to contrast against the quote which is still in sans-serif, but seems sharper. I also changed the typeface of “Hans Christian Andersen” so that it was not the same typeface as the quote.
When discussing different fonts such as sans-serif and serif I used this website:
This is a slide that depicts my nature in a limited amount of space and items. I took information from the websites provided and used that to help me design and add character to my slide.I used contrast, bleeding, and I made the slide straight to the point. I like the image of some geometric figures because it adds a cool element to the simplicity of the slide. All three of these items make up a simple yet intricate display of who I am, plus it adds a simple message that adds character and color to the slide. I pulled inspiration from websites like Tumblr and Pinterest where this type of look is used quite a lot. I wanted to use these different image styles to reflect the vision I had prior to the creation of this slide. Also, the videos and examples of different billboards helped me to design the slide. My classmates helped me out by giving me suggestions on how to make the font bigger and to add a picture that tied in more with the quote.
For my second slide I took the advice to change the text because it went against the message I wanted to give. It was make things happen, but the text was broken,so i chose to use a more solid text. I put it at the bottom of the slide so the entire picture could be seen without the words interjecting it. I chose a new picture that better correlates with my message, and would be more visually appealing.
For my new slide I changed mainly the outline of the text’s color. My classmates wanted me to make the text itself seem “lost” as well so I picked a color that blended in with my background image more. At first I thought of blurring the text, but unfortunately chrome does not have a setting for this.
