Social Media Readings- Sara Haller

Discuss thoughts about the social media readings

I think the rise in digital media is so interesting because I feel like it is changing the way we write and consume writing. For example I have seen how social media is beginning to change  print media. Magazines, for example, have started to adapt realizing that audiences do not want to read a 5 page article. If you look at magazines from the 70s they are super long. Now articles are about a page maximum. We are becoming accustomed to little bites of information rather than long detailed text. Because of this we as writers have to figure out how to boil down what we say.

The Twitter readings are a great example of having to boil down a story into quick consumption. The writing style has to be adapted to that and it’s fun to read when it is adapted to that.
