It quite possibly the weirdest name circumstance I can imagine, I, Rebecca
A. Hayes, am replying to Rebecca M. Hayes (who, in another random
coincidence, teaches where my dad taught for years) in response to this,
but I digress.

In some selfish self-citing, check out
Carr, C. T., & Hayes, R. A. (2015). Social media: Defining, developing, and
divining. *Atlantic Journal of Communication*, 23(1), 46-65.

I can send you a copy if you don't have access.
