I am writing a blog on the Alternate Facts of social media. The idea being that in the truest sense of the phrase, two sets of facts can seemingly tell a very different story.
For example: Many studies/articles say teens are leaving Facebook. Fact 1. The alternate fact is that teens are still the biggest demographic on Facebook, they just use it differently and not for every day posting like the older generations on there. Both studies are factual, but depending on which facts you pull out you get a very different view of Facebook use, perhaps. Get it?
I am looking for a few (3-5) other examples of alternate facts in social media. To participate, send
- your explanation of two alternate facts about social media or a specific platform, and the links to the two studies/articles that support the two facts you're submitting.
- your name, website address, twitter handle, Facebook page.
Article is due to be published Feb 1 so submissions are due Jan 30.
