3. Technology and Social Media: As a whole, technology has a huge part in the development of social media, I'm sure we can all agree on that. Without the creation of cell phones, computers and tablets, social media wouldn't even be a part of our world. There would be nothing we could use to access all the websites that we visit almost everyday, and without technology, our lives would be completely different now than they could be if there was no tchnology.

4. Economics and Social Media: Social media has changed the way that companies need to advertise their products, because television ads have stopped being as effective as they used to be. In order to get people aware of products they put advertisements up on social media websites where a lot of people can see them. Companies also have pages that you can 'Like' on Facebook so you can keep up to date on new products that they release. It has affected our spending habits now that we can make purchases online, and we have less restraint when it comes to buying prodcuts, in my opinion. We are easily influenced by the ads we see and the recommendations we hear.

7. Community and Social Media: Social media has affected the way we define what a community is, and in turn has also resulted us in isolating ourselves from the 'outside world' as we have practically become obsessed with our internet and technology. Yes, we can still talk to people through social media websites and what not, but its not the same because we aren't socializing with them person. People now don't really find a need to hang out with their friends outside of school because they can just text them and its like the same thing. No one spends as much time with their family anymore, they just trap themselves in their rooms and scroll through the internet.

8. Politics and Social Media: Politics is affected by social media because citizens now have new ways to keep up to date with the newest political events. We watch the elections on tv, and people in Canada can watch the U.S election because of the new advances in technology which has led to social media. We can participate in debates online through websites and hear other people's opinions regarding issues in our community, and can therefore develop our own opinions based off the ones we are told.
