In the second session, Dr. Sweetser discussed her passion about political communication research. She specifically talked about how people are talking in non-political spaces, which brings up an interesting question in regards to how politics are using social networks. Our social media class had a heated discussion earlier in the week and everyone had different opinions. We decided that it would be a great opportunity to ask other guests at the conference what their opinion was after Dr. Sweetser got us all "pumped up" about political communication.
