Social media can provide a powerful tool for organizations to spread

their messages and unite individuals toward a common purpose. A good example of

this is the success of the Kony2012 YouTube video: 100 million hits within one

week. Sharing, liking, and retweeting the link are said to be responsible for this

campaign going viral (Kanani 2012). Yet, many people argue that social media makes

people lazy and prevents true activism. Which one is it?

4-Prompt: For Essay 1, write an exemplification essay that answers the question:

1-Does social media help or hurt real social activism/social justice?

2-You will need to use examples (quotes) from the articles as well as your own

personal experience with social media and activism if you choose.

Remember, this is the argumentative exemplification essay, so your grade

depends mostly on how specific and strong your examples are and how

clearly you have stated your position/opinion.


You will need

1)an introduction with a hook, background information,

and a thesis that answers the question above.

2)2-3 body paragraphs with clear topic

sentences and at least 2 specific examples from the article and/or your personal life. After

each example, there should be at least 1-2 sentences of analysis (explanation/connection

back to the thesis in your own words).

3)a conclusion with a restatement of the thesis

and a final thought.
