With the information provided, along with the diction Jessica Remo uses, it clearly demonstrates that she is opposed to social media, and believes that social media has negatives effects on others and that people only post what they want others to see. It is true, that many people become upset when viewing other profiles, for an example seeing your friends at a party that you were not invited to. Her viewpoint is clearly identifiable with the usage of her own real life examples involving her friend, her mom’s Facebook friend, and the chef in
The internet has become that of a new world as it has quickly changed over the years. To everyone who has used the internet this “new world” can look like a number of different things. A rapidly increasing outlook for the internet’s purpose is the world of catfishing. Catfishing, in accordance to Merriam Webster dictionary, describes “a person who sets up a false personal profile on a social networking site for fraudulent or deceptive purposes” (Merriam Webster). Catfishing can be seen as another way for an individual to recreate themselves online for the sheer reason to accomplish what they see as their “ideal” selves. This time eliminating the possibility of their “real” selves being revealed in any. According to Technology Journalist David Baker of BBC News, the internet “has given us a way to re-engineer our identity almost continually and discover what it is like to be someone very different from our ‘real’ selves.” With catfishing, the idea of discovering what it can be like to be portrayed as someone else is taken to the extremes. In this sense, it is much easier for an individual to mold their online personas and hide behind their ideal selves. This leaves the gate wide open for the endangerment of that individual’s personal identity to change alongside their fake online

I chose to do my research paper on social media because I have an interest of the many different ways people can interact with each other worldwide. Whether you live in the United States of America, or in the Middle East, there are many ways we can communicate with one another, with social media being the most popular way of doing so. In this paper I will discuss the meaning of social media, as well as the different types of social media one can use, the purpose of using it, the effects it can have on us, and lastly, who owns these social media sites.
Throughout history, people have improved the way communication and human interaction can be made. From writing letters, to talking on the telephone, to texting and sending emails, the way we exchange information is always being improved upon. Social media is now the most popular way of communication. It is a means of exchange in which people form and share info and ideas in virtual communities and networks.

Social media has become a social and cultural force that has shaped many people's lives over the course of a few short years. There are many different social media channels that people use and they have a range of differences associated with each one. YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn are three different types of social media that were chosen to illustrate some of the differences that are associated with different social media platforms. This technology is so powerful that it has actually been at least partly responsible for shaping world events. Many of the events in the Middle East were driven by social media including the overthrowing of the dictator in Egypt and the revolution in Tunisia.
For most people the self is portrayed differently online, compared to in person. The online individual is more likely to portray the images they would like others to portray them as, compared to an individual’s self in person. Having an online profile like a friend of mine, by the name of Zach McDonald, gives his audience a sense of disbelief on how successful and happy he is. Compared to his in-person self, where he portrays an incomplete and dissatisfied self. Not expressing all the values and attitudes that he portrays online, gives people the wrong impressions of who he really is. The self-online and in person gives people an interpretation of a life that may not necessarily be the life of the individual you are analyzing. As a member
Social media is a false depiction of real life, and those who do not realize this will face a decline in their self-esteem. One reason for this is social media users have the option of filtering their profiles to appear perfect. According to Amy Gonzales and Jeffery Handcock, people’s social media accounts are a representation of who they are. People who compare their profiles to those who use filters on their profiles tend to experience a decrease in self-esteem (Gonzales and Handcock 82). The use of filtering is a feature of all social networking sites that allows users to create a false representation, a representation that is an illusion of who they really are. Although filtering can be as simple as deleting negative feedback from others, the most commonly seen case of filtering is when people use them on their photos to appear more beautiful. Too many people do not realize that their seemingly perfect image is not reality and try to compare themselves to something that is unachievable in the real world. This causes the people who do not edit their profiles to feel a decrease in their self-confidence. Social media causes people to generate fake connections which can easily
Hard Times is the tenth novel by Charles Dickens, The book appraises English society and is aimed at highlighting the social and economic pressures of the times. Hard Times is not a delicate book . has not usually been regarded as one of Dickens 's finest novels and It is also not a difficult book: Dickens wanted all his readers to catch his point exactly, and the moral theme of the novel is very explicitly articulated time and again. There are no hidden meanings in Hard Times, and the book is an interesting case of a great writer subordinating his art to a moral and social purpose. Even if it is not Dickens’s most popular novel, it is still an important expression of the values he thought were fundamental to human
Technology in terms of social networking plays a vital role in maintaining a long-distance relationship. A research in the Cyber Psychology, Behavior, and Social Networking compared the role of Social Networking Site in a long-distance romantic relationship (LDRR) and in a geographically close romantic relationship (GCRR). The authors came to a conclusion that “Individuals in LDRR were more likely than individuals in GCRR to use SNS for relationship maintenance by using SNS to express their involvement and to gauge their partner’s involvement… For LDRR couples, because of a lack of physical and social means to perform and experience relationship maintenance processes, the findings suggest that SNS is an important alternative” (Billedo et
As technology grew, a new way to communicate has emerged also known as social networking. Social networking is known as “forms of electronic communication (as Web sites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content. (Meriam Webster).” Social networking has evolved over the decades starting off as only email to now many different ways to communicate; along with the way that it is used has grown.
