Social Network

Is social networking a bad thing? Going back in time to about forty years ago, there was no such thing as social networking. Technology has become a major part of society. It has also impacted the youth of this generation. Now social networking is a part of most teenagers’ life, which most times lead into an addiction. My article is titled, Study Finds Teenagers’ Internet Socializing Isn’t Such a Bad Thing by Tamar Lewin (676). Although it captivates its reader’s attention with the use of logos and ethos, the evidence used in it, and its appeal to the audience, the purpose of this article is not entirely effective. It lacks information (evidence and support), about the main subject, which would answer the question, “How does internet socializing benefit teenagers?” The use of egos and logos was thorough and well used in this article. For example, in the article, Ms. Ito, a research scientist in the department of informatics at the University of California, Irvine, said that some parental concern about the dangers of Internet socializing might result from a misperception (Lewin 677). This is a good example of logos, and how the author integrates the information of credible sources. The author also integrates the studies of the MacArthur Foundation, which is part of a $50 million project on digital and media learning (Lewin 677). This leads to show that Tamar Lewin put logical and legitimate sources in his article. Tamar Lewin himself seems credible in the article he wrote, hence, he has been writing for the New York Times since 1982, often relating to social policy (Lewin 676). This shows the use of logos because of his background knowledge and previous work that he has written for the New York Times; we can see that he can be accounted for (Lewin 676). The evidence in Study Finds Teenagers’ Internet Socializing Isn’t Such a Bad Thing is…...

...Tyra Gilliard ENG 101 Professor Bolton February 18, 2013 The Social Network: Dead Dwelling Souls of Two The film, The Social Network, is about a Harvard student named Mark Zuckerberg who has the idea along with the abilities and programming knowledge to create a website called Facebook. But with the help of his best friend Eduardo Saverin, the first project, Facemash, was a successful one yet a failure. After Eduardo's big financial contributions to Facebook, they decide to expand. Their expansion makes the co-founder of Napster, Sean Parker, become interested in their new website. Mark takes Sean's advice while Eduardo tries to find advertisement in New York City. At the Facebook Celebration Party, Eduardo is notified that his shares of the company have been diluted from 34% to 0.03%. At the end of the film, Sean Parker and some of Facebook's interns are arrested for having possession of cocaine. Between Mark, Sean, and Eduardo's interest, the friendship among everyone seemed to become worse. The Social Network indicates that differences among best friends can ruin their friendship.

Grant Department of Radio/TV/Film, The University of Texas at Austin Wei-wei Huang Department of Mass Communication, Fu-jen Catholic University, Taipei, Taiwan Cross-cultural communication scholars have looked at effects of interpersonal communication and both ethnic and host mass media uses on the acculturation behavior of immigrants for a long time. The present study employs an important network analysis concept, the social influence of alters on ego, in the field of cross-cultural communication. Using measures of alters' acculturation, English- and ethnic-language media uses, and years of residence in the U.S., a model is proposed and tested upon a sample of international students from a college campus. The results indicate that the alters' acculturation plays a central role in the pattern of relationships. INTRODUCTION To answer questions such as "what happens when individuals move from one culture to another" and "why are some immigrants more successful than others in adapting a new environment," social scientists have long employed the concept of acculturation to explain the process through which immigrants adapt themselves to the norms and values of the host culture (Gordon, 1964; Padilla, 1980; Gudykunst & Kim, 1984; Kim, 1977, 1988).

...Social Networking Relation “Social networking is really recommendation between people about the things that they are interested in and they like… this has stimulated people’s attention in terms of the importance of public relation. The people who are going on these sites didn’t want to be monetised, they didn’t want to be advertised to, so again editorial communication is so powerful, they would rather be communities that can exchange views that are untarnished.” - Sir Martin Sorrell Social media is a global phenomenon in which old demographics no longer apply. Conversations happen at the click of a button. New communities are born every day and brands need to be involved; in the first instance to listen, and then to participate. Social media is booming. Every day new statistics, white papers and articles appear discussing its continued growth. Independent market analyst Datamonitor (2008) has revealed how quickly the number of people participating in online social networking is growing: the United Kingdom currently leads Europe, in terms of membership, and is expected to reach 27 million users - a threefold increase on today's figures - by 2012 (www.datamonitor.com). “Social networking sites are the reality television of the Internet,” said Jon Gibs (Senior Director of Media, Nielsen//NetRatings). “The content is relatively inexpensive for publishers to produce, and social networking is not a fad that will disappear.

...The purpose of the assigned paper “Can Social Networks and E-Portfolios Be Used Together for Enhancing Learning Effects and Attitudes,” coauthored by M.Fatih Baris and Nilguun Tosun, was to explore the use of social media for the presentation of originally produced content and to consider the impact of these forms of exhibition. The experiment presented in the paper used high school students and seemed to demonstrate that the use of these vehicles to present original productions was more motivating than the actual projects themselves. At least, I received that interpretation from my reading of it. The paper, while offering an interesting concept, was difficult to read due to the poor translation from what seems to be an original Turkish text to poorly structured English. This distraction made reading the paper more difficult than it could have been with a better translation. Furthermore, the paper was laced with citations and miscellaneous facts that seemed to distract from the authors’ true research. Baris and Tosun do seem to grasp a legitimate insight into the Web 2.0, that being that the use of social media to connect with instructors and employers is the way of the future. Homework and professional presentations are rapidly finding their ways into becoming crucial ingredients for the analysis of individuals’ skills. Social media and e-portfolios are acting as the vehicles for making these materials easily and readily available to all who wish to consider an......

However as opposed to enriching their lives, is social media just another avenue for teens to become addicted to? One of the biggest problems facing our teens today is the addictive, pervasive effects of social media. It can lead to increased distractibility, anxiety, depression and apathy. Fear of missing out (FOMO) is a very real feeling thats starting to permeate through teens social relationships. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are making this increasingly more difficult for a teen to avoid. Teens can quickly become self-absorbed in a superficial online world.

Social Network Case Study Analysis

...ENT 201-50 Fall 2015 | The Social Network Case Study Analysis | | Austin Tiller 12-6-2015 | CASE SUMMARY The founding of Facebook is portrayed in the movie, “The Social Network.” The movie depicts the early years of Facebook, from the origin of the idea through its growth to a multimillion dollar company. In the film, Mark Zuckerberg is hired by the Winklevoss Twins to help them design and program an idea they came up with. Mark decides to create his own version of their idea and begins to work on it with the help of his best friend, Eduardo Saverin. Shortly after, Mark’s version begins to be successful and the Twins realize what he has done and plan to prosecute him. Mark’s successful version also catches the eye of a wealthy entrepreneur, Shawn Parker, who invented Napster. The film continues with the involvement of Shawn in the company that Mark and Eduardo started. It ends with the end of a friendship between Eduardo and Mark due to Mark knowingly tricking Eduardo in giving up most of his shares to the company and betraying a verbal agreement between the two. This situation is just one of the many large bumps in the road near the end of the film as the three main characters deal with many different situations on the road to success. The end of the film also shows Mark/Facebook being sued by the Winklevoss Twins for stealing their idea.

...computer networking to facilitate newly improved forms of computer-mediated social interaction was suggested early on.[8] Efforts to support social networks via computer-mediated communication were made in many early online services, including Usenet[9], ARPANET, LISTSERV, and bulletin board services (BBS). Many prototypical features of social networking sites were also present in online services such as America Online, Prodigy, CompuServe, and The WELL[10]. Early social networking on the World Wide Web began in the form of generalized online communities such as Theglobe.com (1995),[11] Geocities (1994) and Tripod.com (1995). Many of these early communities focused on bringing people together to interact with each other through chat rooms, and encouraged users to share personal information and ideas via personal webpages by providing easy-to-use publishing tools and free or inexpensive webspace. Some communities - such as Classmates.com - took a different approach by simply having people link to each other via email addresses. In the late 1990s, user profiles became a central feature of social networking sites, allowing users to compile lists of "friends" and search for other users with similar interests. New social networking methods were developed by the end of the 1990s, and many sites began to develop more advanced features for users to find and manage friends.[12] This newer generation of social networking sites began to flourish with the emergence of SixDegrees.com in......
