For this paper I have decided to give up the technology known as “Social Media”. Social Media is the social interaction between people in which they create, share or exchange information. Social Media is where ideas in virtual communities and networks are shared. It was built based on new technological advantages such as the Web that allow people to create and exchange user-generated content. (http://www.igi-global.com/dictionary/social-media/27397) The reason I have decided to give up Social Media is to see how my life and interaction with others will change. The three Social Media accounts I am giving up are: Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. To fulfill this assignment I have erased these three social media apps from my phone and I have blocked the website URL in my devices (tablets, laptops, etc.). Also, I have decided to change the passwords of my accounts to be a combination of numbers, upper-case and lower-case letters. This password would be written in a piece of paper and my best friend will keep it until the assignment is finished.
