Include a link to reputable, relevant source that describes the movement and its participants’ use of social media/digital technology and be sure to integrate the source into your response.
  2. As a result of this activism, did large-scale, macro-level disruptive change occur? To what extent — to what degree? If not, why not? Be specific.

ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
