Today, social media is a powerful tool. From being able to Skype with family members from a different continent to spreading positive messages to millions of people, we can use social media to offer new perspectives and new ideas.

Last week in class, we talked about perspective and how shifting perspective can change the way we think. A new Netflix documentary called Audrie & Daisy follows several teenage girls who suffer from sexual assault. They also talk about how the internet and social media amplifies the trauma victims face and they hope to increase education and conversation surrounding sexual assault. This film also recreates social media and text exchanges to provide a more realistic experience.
