effect and (1b) provide evidence that this positive effect actually occurs (the evidence can be a popular press
news article or academic source).
2) Please describe one negative effect associated with producing/sharing content on social media. Make sure
you both clearly describe (2a) the negative effect and (2b) provide evidence that this negative effect actually
occurs (the evidence can be a popular press news article or academic source).
Consumption effects:
