Feel free to use other issues that relate to the online world but run them by me first. Discuss the details of these issues and how the specific social media or web-based platforms contribute to them in various ways.

Use quotes/paraphrase from at least five outside sources (two of which can be essays from our book but the others must be from academic books or journal articles) to support and illustrate. Some of the less obvious issues above have links to help explain.
