Fun facts about Sociology

Law: Sociologists have developed fascinating theories to explain social phenomenon.

• Betteridge’s law, or Davis’ law, or the “journalistic principle” from Murphy’s law, outlines how “any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.” It notes that this type of headline is lazy – and a fear-mongering way to draw readers in.
