It may be hard to remember what life was like before websites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat were a regular part of our day. Today, hardly an afternoon goes by without people sharing something on a social network or browsing through the statuses and pictures of others.
However, social networking sites like these are relatively new. After all, Facebook was founded only about 10 years ago, and countless other social networking sites have emerged since then. This booming industry thrives on what is fresh and innovative, but it is also struggling with challenges that have affected workplaces across the country for decades, including discrimination.
