Introduction 1. Hook Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, and many more – words that had absolutely no meaning just a few years ago are now recognized as household names by practically anyone capable of speaking. What are they and why are they so important 2. Definition Define social media: Toni Almqvist definition of social media: "refers to interaction among people in which they create, share, and/or exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks." Talk about the pervasiveness of social media in society and how and where it began. “Social networking took off in 2002 with Friendster. Myspace, which has reached critical mass and was acquired by News Corp. for $580 million, and Facebook, born out of a Harvard dorm room, followed.” 3. Thesis: Although the popularity of social media sites have been life changing and beneficial due to its abilities to expand communication and gain information, social media has a negative effect on society as well because it enables people to use its power for the wrong reasons. Thesis: Social media is becoming ever more present in our society and has had a huge impact on the way many people interact. This impact on social interactions have caused negative and positive effects on a large scale. And understanding these effects can help society as a whole to understand who we are as people and as a community.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
