I am writing a research paper on the use of social media for the purpose of terrorism. For one of my supporting statements, I am attempting to describe how social media connects users with similar interests in order to promote people to share opinions, yet I cannot figure out the proper wording for the sentence. This is what I have so far:
Social Media connects users with similar interests, allowing for the [act of sharing an opinion], effectively increasing the incentive for one to speak out regarding their beliefs regarding contemporary events and issues.
The phrase is on the tip of my tongue, but I cannot seem to think of it. Thank you!
