She feels that she is not attractive enough for Christian.  After her exams, she receives a package from Christian containing first edition copies of Tess of the d’Urbervilles that surprises her.  One day, Ana is having drinks with her friend. Christian comes to receive her since he feels that she is not able to move alone as she inebriated. Ana leaves the place with Christian. When she wakes up, she finds herself in the room of Christian. He informs her that he wants to have physical relation with her but want her to sign the non disclosure statement first regarding she would not tell anyone what they do together.  Ana receives several packages from Christian. The packages include a laptop from him to her to enable her to perform research on the BDSM lifestyle in consideration of the contract as well as have communication with Christian.

Interview with Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton about Significance of Social Media

Social media has revolutionized human life completely. It has influenced almost every walk of life even the field of education has not remained untouched from its influence. Today, it has become a major platform for students and teachers to get in touch with each other and discuss the chapters out of their classes. Recently, I (a Journalist) got an opportunity to meet an India based educationist Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton and asked him several questions regarding the significance of social media in education.

Below, I would like to inform you about various questions that I asked to Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton and what he said in reply to my questions.

Me: Professor, what do you think about social media?

Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton: Social media is a great networking platform. It allows people to get in touch with their existing friends, family members, and relatives. Moreover, it provides an opportunity to befriend new people living in different parts of the world. I also use social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. Instead of having communication with my family, friends, and relatives, I love to have communication with new people whom I included in my friend list since it provides me an opportunity to understand human nature of people from different places and religions.

Me: Do you think social media is helpful for teachers and students too?

Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton: Yes, social media is very much helpful for teachers and students. Social media provides them a platform to teachers and students to share their knowledge and ask questions that creates trouble for them. I advise my students to use social networking site Facebook and add me as their friends on the same. I tell you why I say this. Actually, Facebook provides the students an opportunity to discuss class lectures and other activities related to class. Besides, Facebook provides them an opportunity to discuss their questions with me out of class.

Me: Don’t you think students misuse the Facebook and other social networking websites?

Nathan Carr Fullerton: See, there is nothing in this world about which you can say that it cannot be misused. Everything has its positive and negative sides. It is our responsibility to keep ourselves abstain from negative side if we want to do something good in our life.

Lastly, I thanked Professor Nathan Carr Fullerton for giving me some minutes from his busy life.
