BACKGROUND

Millennials have changed the way they communicate due to the ever-changing social media trends. What hasn’t changed is the fact that they are still reaching out to one another and are constantly exchanging thoughts, ideas and opinions. With multiple channels at their disposal, millennials have now adopted rapid and concise formats for communication hoping that they do so while also breaking the clutter caused by the onslaught of messages.

APPLICATION PROCESS:

Small Writing Project: On a website, blog, or online forum, write a 500-1000 word post that expresses your ideas about how “Social media has changed the way millennials communicate today. Can concise communication on social media be detrimental in the overall development of communication skills?

Criteria for evaluation: The best posts will be creative, express your thoughts clearly and concisely, and avoid grammatical or spelling errors. The post must also include a link from the website or blog to the Edkent Media website (https://edkentmedia.com).

TOPIC INSTRUCTIONS:

“SOCIAL MEDIA HAS CHANGED THE WAY MILLENNIALS COMMUNICATE TODAY. CAN CONCISE COMMUNICATION ON SOCIAL MEDIA BE DETRIMENTAL IN THE OVERALL DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS ?”
