Social media is a dynamic field with massive popularity worldwide. There is no denying that social media has shifted our communication practices, as well as traditional business. The power of social media comes from the ability to communicate to others and discover endless amounts of information instantaneously. Social media is commonly found within a workplace, whether it is for personal use or a company’s account. It is important for companies to examine how social media may be affecting them, and how they can implement ways to move forward with technology, without letting it interfere with productivity.
