The research topic will be social media. Social media has become an important aspect of our daily lives. InstagramFacebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Tiktok have millions of users from all around the world of all ages including myself. Social media has been around for a few decades now and despite its short amount, its popularity is huge. I want to research how social media has affected our lives? Both negatively and positively. What are the ages most affected by social media? How much of someones day is spent on social media? How has social media impacted our view on society and ourselves? Researching social media can reveal a lot of interesting facts. 

A literature review (i.e. statement of past work) on this topic.

A good literature review is an essential part of the problem formulation stage in a research. Conducting a literature review will: a) help you become familiar with a body of knowledge on the topic you are interested in, b) show you the path of prior research, c) help you integrate and summarize what is known in the area of your interest, and, d) help you learn from others and stimulate your ideas.

For your literature review assignment, you are required to find at least 3 academic sources. These academic sources can include articles published in academic journals, books, book chapters, research reports etc. In addition, you can use non-academic sources as well, which might include a newspaper article, documentary, movie, an artistic piece etc. Please remember that 3 academic sources are required, and non-academic sources are optional, not required. You can use online library data bases to find academic sources such as JStor, Ebscohost, Google Scholar etc. Please remember that Wikipedia is not an academic source.

After you find your sources, you are required to read them first.

        Then, you will start writing your literature review by first summarizing the sources (their findings, arguments, research model etc). However, please remember that literature review is not simply a summary, but it is a critical reading of your sources. That is, your literature review has to answer these questions below:

– What have others said about this topic? 

– What research has been done previously?

            – What theories address it and what do they say?

 – Are past findings consistent or do they contradict each other?

 – Are there any flaws in the body of existing literature that your research can remedy?

One of the most important things about the literature review is that it is not a simple summary of the past work. After you present the findings of previous research conducted on the issue, for the next step, you have to answer these questions:

– How do you create a bridge between the past work and your own research project? How do you link those past work to the research project you have in mind?

           – What are your critical reflections on this literature review? You are supposed to create a critical argument on what you have read.

          – What is it that you are going to study uniquely? Compared to the past work, is yours a replication or a new approach, or on an attack on the limitations of previous studies, or what? It is here that you must explain clearly why it is important to do further research on this problem.

             – What is your theoretical standpoint?
