Its seemingly sudden rise in popularity has caused many to question its longevity, leading to much speculation as to whether or not social media are a fad. This essay will not concern itself with weighing up the arguments that are for and against social media being a fad, but will instead set about looking at what a fad is and then present a framework to identify them. Next, a review of what social media are followed by applying the framework to assess its status as a fad. Bikhchandani et al.
Charismatic leadership is a leadership style that is identifiable but may be perceived with less tangibility than other leadership styles. Often called a transformational leadership style, charismatic leaders inspire eagerness in their teams and are energetic in motivating employees to move forward. The after excitement and commitment from teams is an enormous asset to productivity and goal achievement. The negative side of charismatic leadership is the amount of confidence placed in the leader rather than in employees. This can create the risk of a project or even in an entire organization collapsing if the leader leaves.
Making vote casting fun to encourage more virtual concurrence is a nice corollary of the setup, whose primary objective was to improve on the outcomes of the current democratic processes themselves. Allowing more people to run for office eliminates having to choose between the least worst candidate, but further burdens the personal load of responsibility for the voters.

Using nonviolent resistance does not include killing off anyone that doesn’t share the same opinion, it is simply protesting to prove and persuade a need for change. Also, peacefully protesting attracts attention from all over the world; thus, educating more people about a serious issue in society.

Sometimes, critics may be uncomfortable to listen but it is beneficial to improve the quality of our creation. Indeed, critics nowadays are delivered either straightforward or sarcastically. As graphic designer is able to declare message through their creation, graphic designer owns a social cognizance - to partake in the excogitation of world improvement. In connection to the critics, graphic designer should exert pertinent expression codes - whether originated from local, national or international culture - thus generating emotion and meaning (Marsack, 1997).

Papacharissi define a public space as a ‘forum of political deliberation’ (The Virtual Sphere 2002), whilst a public sphere is defined as something the ‘internet could facilitate…that promotes a democratic exchange of ideas and opinions’ (The Virtual Sphere 2002). One of the main questions asked from reading this article is, does a public space really create a democratic society? The effects of the internet on politics are still being argued, as it is still unknown if the technology is benefiting politics or if politics are being ignored due to technology.
