You work for Acme Widget Company, a business that sells products including toys, games, bicycles, sporting goods, and footwear. Acme Widget is based out of a small store in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Over the past 10 years, the company has expanded its business model to include online sales. In that time, the company’s sales more than doubled and its customer base went from local to international.

Because of the company’s online success, Acme’s founder, Winnie Widget, is considering using social media to grow Acme’s brand. At the same time, she has some concerns about social media.
For example, she knows that one of Acme Widget’s rival companies, Whacky Widgets, Inc., recently dealt with some public scrutiny. Its CEO had been using his social media accounts to broadcast his controversial opinions and share “fake news” from unreliable sources.
After witnessing the other company’s controversy, Winnie Widget has asked for your guidance. In the past, she avoided using social media for fear of embarrassing herself or the company publicly. But she has also heard that social media has benefits for businesses. With the recent growth in the company’s online business, she needs to decide whether social media would be helpful for Acme Widget.
She would like you to review some articles about the topic to learn more.
Part One: Read Actively
The founder of Acme, Winnie Widget, has asked you to review three texts that she has been too busy to read. These texts explain the risks and benefits related to social media. Winnie needs to decide whether she should embrace social media use for the company, or if she should avoid it altogether.
