My topic is : Does Social Media actually improve our life?
This paper will help you go deeper into your research topic before you start writing about it. This information will also be helpful when you write your research paper and need background information about your topic in your introductory paragraph. The following quote in the discussion board this week (“What you see is what you believe before you start looking”) is a quote to stimulate thought about getting to know your topic well before making any judgements or conclusions. This paper supports that process.
