Hosted by

When it comes to writing, there have been lots of rules -- you probably had to study Strunk and White’s “The Elements of Style” at some point. In the world of social media, the internet and emoji, these rules have broken down. Is there one “correct” way to write anymore? We speak with a BuzzFeed editor about the fluidity of language, and get some tips on effective writing in the digital age.
