On Nov. 16, the IU News and Media Team issued a news release about new research by IU Media School faculty member Amy L. Gonzales. Her paper in Communication Research supports the commonly held view that people from disadvantaged groups are using the Internet to broaden their social networks. Four days later, a reporter from Mic. com, a popular news site among Millennials, contacted IU Communications for a copy of her paper and her contact information. On Nov. 20, a story about her paper appeared, “Study Shows People in Disadvantaged Groups Use Social Media the Way Everyone Should Use it.”
