Proposal: Interpersonal Skills

Social media is a place where people can communicate, send each other pictures, etc. so It might be a topic that is brought up on a page like this.

However, communication on Facebook, Twitter, etc. is much looser than verbal communication, so there would be less to discuss, and it would probably encourage opinions.

This is just an idea, and also my first proposal for a Area 51 thing.

I think that social interaction as a whole will have different viewpoints instead of single answers, but that this will not be problematic so long as people back up their answers with arguments, rather than simply making claims without backing them up.

Questions about social media would be on-topic. As social media interaction is simply social interaction in a very different context, it's just as important to discuss as verbal communication; depending on what you want to get out of it, the interaction parameters of the internet and social media can be far less-clear to some people. Communication through social media, and the internet in general, often deals with different rules than those used with in-person interactions, and it's important for some people to be able to know what those distinctions are.
