Abstract

The information superhighway has been open since the ‘90s, but the social media lane has only been open since 2007. While social media adds more information to our lives, it organizes our lives as well. This research examines social media from the perspective of chaos theory, narrative theory, convergence theory, and adaptive structure theory.
