I thought this article provided some really interesting background on social media. Today we think of social media as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.; but social media is really just another way that we communicate. This article reflects on how the idea of social media came about through the Romans and how they would communicate through scribes and papyrus rolls. According to the article, social media only requires literacy and the ability to copy and deliver information quickly. I think it’s a unique take on social media, maybe it’s not such a new market as we think, we just have much different tools.
