Any kind of quadrant chart can be used for this analysis activity. Some ideas for pairings include:

- Positive/negative
- Student in agreement/Disagreement
- Directed at an individual/directed at a group/policy
- Geographical origin (Urban/Rural; US/International; etc.)
- Sources (Included/Not included; Cable news/Established print media; YouTube/Facebook; etc.)
- Anonymous poster/known poster

Results can be shared out in class, or be used as a springboard to a more substantial assignment.
