“If it doesn’t spread, it’s dead” – Henry Jenkins
Social media platforms provide excellent opportunities for having your voice heard and your content shared. If you are anything like me the prospect of sharing content to millions of people with the expectation of them replying, sharing, remixing induces a sense of anxiety. At the same time though sharing content that goes viral can be an exhilarating and even re-sharing an already popular tweet (that just, like, speaks to you as a person) can make you feel a part of something bigger. So, the prospect of social media may be intimidating but there are plentiful opportunities out there.
Take solace then, and some tips, from the fact that your social media activities are unlikely to be as awkward – or downright disastrous – as the stories feature here.
