Abstract

Typically when you are passionate about social, civil, or political issues in our country, you want to promote change and encourage others to be agents of change/advocates as well! Many use social media as an outlet to state their opinions, share stories, and examine research on the issues they are passionate about. Blogging, vlogging, and using other social media networking sites are recent popular ways of sharing and discussing these issues. My blog, Empowering for the Future, not only addresses the issues of race and women in which I'm passionate, but also critics and analyzes current media stories that may covertly discriminate or degrade persons in our society. Using social media as an outlet to discuss these serious topics open the door for continuous discussions that will educate others about the social problems they may not notice is directly affecting them or conflicting with their values.
