An Xiao Mina Interview Reflection

There is one quote that An Xiao Mina said in the video that stood out to me. She said “I often think that the memes that have a larger impact on society create a narrative viewpoint that allows for bloggers, journalists, news commentators, politicians and others to continue that discourse, and then it becomes amplified.” There wasn’t really a meme I thought of during the interview because there wasn’t one that came to mind. However, what I did learn about getting beyond our “filter bubbles” and using social media to learn about different communities is that in order to learn more beyond the bubble, we will need to continuously keep an open mind as journalists.
