Final Project- Rise of Social Media: Will There Be a Fall?

Inspired by The Circle, my final project will focus on the rise of social media in the past few years, its cultural impact and if there will ever be a time where social media will die out. I aim to address social media’s importance, especially with the younger generation and how social media has transcended beyond a source of entertainment to a “necessary” outlet of expression, communication and interaction for today’s society. I will be doing a paper/blog post with links and articles pertaining to my topic.
