Discuss how “social media websites from Facebook to Twitter have shaped the online social landscape.”  

Ask, while it is “easier than ever to spread news and reconnect with old friends;” nevertheless, “is social media good for us?” 

“Consider ethical and political problems raised by social media, including threats to our self-esteem, economy, democracy, news media, and even our free will.”
