Have you tried using Google+? Why or why not? Do you think Google has a chance at successfully competing against Facebook? Why or why not?
3) Find an article online about an incident where an employee was fired for social media use. Summarize and critique the article in your own words. Do you think the termination of the employee was justified? Why or why not? Could the employer have done anything to prevent this incident? Be sure to include the URL of your article.
