Kelly Gorrell’s Multimedia Companion Entry
The article I picked is from Facebook.com, titled, “Stories. People using Facebook in extraordinary ways.” I chose this piece because I currently have friends studying abroad, and at times I feel very disconnected to them knowing they are so far away. I found this interactive media site to be very interesting. Readers are able to pick a continent or language, and then focus on a specific region, learning about similarities and connections made throughout the world through technology. I believe the media used on this site helps to enhance the reader’s experience. The site’s text glosses over the connections Facebook makes with users all over the world. With the interactive media, I was able to pick and choose which continents I wanted to explore; therefore, never feeling overwhelmed by information.
