Social media has both been criticized and hailed by different groups and individuals. People have varying perspectives on the advantages and risks of using social media. To understand these contrasting views, I will be interviewing several people with different backgrounds to get an overview of the diverse views regarding social media. The perspectives that will be discussed include: linguistic, cybersecurity, social media marketing, and self-advertisement. These interviews will take place over the next two months and will be posted on this blog.
