    • I really like how you focused on the development of social media and made it known how it is made possible through the Internet and the benefits that we experince.

    • It was really interesting reading the start of social media and the use of internet and how far we have gotten with it nowadays. For many people, social media acts as a form of self expression being whoever you would like to be and also for businesses it acts as a form of spreading information about their product to consumers. Whatever purpose social media serves for an individual, it is agreeable that there are many positive and negative affects. You focused much of the positive side of social media, but there are also many negatives to social media as well. I believe discussing a little bit of the negative affects of social media would give a better understanding and impact to social media, here is an article discussing the negative side https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/negative-effects-social-media/

    • I agree with you. Social media is important for people to stay connected with the events and news reports on a daily basis. I use social media everyday to check up on what’s happening with my friends as well as important news that matters to me. I get easy and quick access to information which is a main impact of social media on modern society.

    Alexandra commented on the post, Ceramics

    Amy, I love ceramics and thoroughly enjoyed reading about these different papers. Perhaps my favorite one was “Ceramics (As Containers)” because it acknowledges how ceramics has molded (no pun intended) how we learn about past cultures. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts has a few exhibits on ceramics and it would be an interesting thing to check out!

    Ana, I thought it was really amazing how you discussed neighborhood safety. I don’t think enough people acknowledge how lucky they are to be in a safe area or try to make that a possibility for other. I agree with you that the children in our lives (I have two younger brothers) deserve to be safe. This article…Read More

    Self-Censorship in Russian Media

    Ashley, this sounds like a super interesting book! Isn’t weird how when we’re young, we want to be older and when we’re old, we want to be younger? I also liked your ending line of “appreciating our parents.” That’s really true. I don’t think enough of us show our parents gratitude. This book so far reminds me of the movie “13 Going on 30.” This…Read More
