This research project seeks to, first, grasp the pervasiveness and consequences of rapidly globalizing social media within modern political institutions and global economies, then perform side-by-side comparisons of the effectiveness of various poverty-alleviation efforts prompted by the social media boom. The goal is to gain better understanding of the roots of poverty, then to explore the growing connection between social media (users and companies) and the state of poverty, specifically in developing nations.
