Social Media | Creating the Media We Want to See

To kick off this lesson about social media, MEDIAGIRLS’s goal is to see how they are impacted and influenced, specifically, by social media. Because technology is developing at the speed of light, it is important to think about the negative and positive influences that these developments have impacted the lives of everyone around the world, including social media. But with this development, social media has been known to cause a significant impact on many girls’ lives. Unspoken social media rules are one of the aspects of social media that can be a negative influence. Our focus is to get girls to start thinking about ways to use social media in a positive and empowering way for change.
