This sensibility must rearticulate social media to leverage their use toward the goals of the community action. A more thoughtful understanding of social media and their potentials and constraints can help to foment stronger, sustainable partnerships between higher education and community partners. This discussion is situated in a specific servicelearning professional writing course and offers strategies to rearticulate personal use toward more critical deployments of social media.
