Choose a social media app to analyze.

  2. Explain important historical context surrounding the creation of the app (i.e., how and why was it created?).
  3. Explain the key communication features of the app (i.e., how is it used?). Be detailed, giving examples and/or screen shots – if available to you – to aid in your explanation.
  4. Use media theories/theorists to help you argue for what impact this app has on users’ communication behaviors (i.e., how does this app change users’ communication motives, purpose, style, choices).
  5. A minimum of one academic source is required.
