Social media is highly debated these days. One criticism is that it deprives people of human interaction, but the other side of that argument posits that those who frequent social media—whether adolescents or adults—are reaching out for more interaction. What do you believe?
For this Discussion, you consider the two sides of this debate and take a stance. You then find research that focuses on the impact social media has on relationships and socialization.
To Prepare for this Discussion:
Consider the two statements: “social media gives you a sense of community” and “social media isolates you from others”
Take a stance and select one of these statements to support
Search the Internet and/or the Walden library for at least two scholarly articles related to the impact of social media on relationships and socialization
By Day 4
Post your stance on social media as community- or isolation-building. Explain why you chose that stance. Support your explanation with the scholarly resources you found in your search. Use proper APA format and citations.
