I have created this footprint of the things I have been on for the past few days. The things in my footprint are the things I mostly go on. Facebook sometimes when i'm active on Facebook i'm either talking to people or sleeping. Nothing you use on google is private so everything you go on you can see everything. People might use social media sometimes because they might be bored.

We learnt about the definition of Social Action. Which means “Taking steps to “change” things that are wrong in our society, and introducing new ideas, process for doing things better in the future.Each of our team members were working on categories which was putting them in order. Matching the categories with the 4 subjects
