Social Media Sensations – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
If not already active users, most students will at least be familiar with these social media tools. This set excels at relating the stories behind each media outlet (rather than instructing readers in their use). Company history, funding sources, news stories, politics, and societal impacts are discussed. The constant need to evolve and the future of each medium are also addressed. The layout and format are very appealing. A relevant and satisfactory tool for introducing young readers to popular social media outlets.
