About

Hello! I'm Michelle, and am a rising junior in Indiana. I wish to pursue a career in business, more specifically marketing, and hopefully start a big business one day! Currently, I'm working on a research paper that digs deep into what trends are in the business industry and if the universal traits of trends can create an ultimate "trend-setting recipe".

the factors contributing to the rise, popularity, and eventual decline of business and social media trends

Started July 14, 2023

Abstract or project description

The student project will investigate the factors contributing to the rise, popularity, and eventual decline of business and social media trends. It will begin by examining the past to understand how technological advancements and societal changes influenced the emergence and growth of these trends. The project will also analyze the relationship between culture, user behavior, and technological innovations to uncover why certain platforms or trends became popular and important in daily life and commerce. Furthermore, the project aims to reveal the key moments or conditions that led to the decline of once-dominant trends by conducting case studies, analyzing data, and interviewing experts (if any are open for interview), the student will provide a comprehensive narrative that explains the lifecycle of significant social media and business trends, offering valuable insights for future digital endeavors.
