China’s Continued Genocide of the Uighurs | Social Media and the Prevalence Para-Social Relationships
Matthew Hawkins – Former Policy Director for the ERLC
The Uighur people in China are under persecution and they are particularly being targeted through policies restricting their birth rate. In the United States, the first refugees have arrived o be resettled, the first in 8 months.
Chris Martin – Terms of Service Blog
Parasocial relationships are happening through social media outlets. They are one-way, mediated relationships through an outlet such as Youtube, radio, television, Instagram, and more. Chris encourages us to not limit our relationships to parasocial ones, but rather engage in person with our fellow Christians.
