Analyze the evolution of social media standards and practices and how it relates to the potential need for regulation of social media, along with ethical concerns.
Many people get all or most of their news from social media. For this project, we are going to be analyzing the content of several social media sites from major news sources, paying particular attention to social media standards, practices, and regulation.
Where do you get your news? Start by going to one major news site's FACEBOOK page (CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.) Try another different news site's TWITTER feed, and third choose another social media site such as Reddit, Pinterest, or another (preferably one you use, if there is one).
Analyze the sites in a 3-5 page total paper. In your analysis, be sure to include the following:
Gave a strong, in-depth introduction.
Identified and thoroughly analyzed several social media practices.
Gave several good examples of social media regulation and an insightful analysis of impact.
Thoroughly analyzed several ethical consideration.
Thoughtfully and completely considered the culture of the sites.
Gave a thorough, insightful conclusion.
