The Impacts of Social Media on Modern Journalism

From a bar stool to a classroom chair, the question, “do you have a Facebook?” is only becoming more and more prevalent in modern America, and the world for that matter. In addition to Facebook, other platforms such as Twitter encourage people to share their thoughts like never before, or Instagram, where photographs are widely circulated at the blink of an eye.
