_____Social penetration theory: A social network’s reach determines the number and variety of users it can reach and how many users are likely to follow a specific topic.
_____How social media affects people: Social media users are more likely to be on platforms with high engagement, which means more engagement is associated with a more active social media user.
____How social networks influence behavior: The more users a social network has, the more likely they are to post content and engage in discussions on topics, such as politics, health, education, business, and more.
__________How social platforms work: Social networks operate by linking users to their most popular content, or, more commonly, to each other’s most popular posts.
_______How social network companies interact with users: Facebook and Instagram use a variety of tools to make their platforms more relevant to their users.
