  • Social media and identity: From Goffman to Sherry Turkle, Meyrowitz and beyondBy Sorin Adam Matei– July 25, 2010Posted in: Education, From Mass Media to Social Media Course, Research, Social MediaShare VN:F [1.9.7_1111]How many stars is this article worth?please wait...Rating: 4.0/5 (1 vote cast)Identity theories and social mediaWhat cultural and intellectual forces account for the social and intellectual ethos that fuels the social media revolution? Was the Facebook or blogging revolution a simple effect of new technologies becoming available? How does new media, in turn, influence the intellectual outlook and cultural patters of modern life? What kinds of social groups do the social affordances of the social media produce?  How is the presentation of the self influenced by a constantly networked world?  Is this a communitarian, or individualist ethos? Is the ”social” aspect of media equivalent to ”communitarian”? Or are we dealing here with an altogther different kind of community, possibly one that is closer to that of ”communitas,” a temporary state of affairs that appear only during ”ritualized” encounters.Amazon.com page of No Sense of PlaceThese issues can be approached from two different directions. One would look at the unique role technologies play in altering and shaping our experiences. Medium-theory, proposed by Joshua Meyrowitz, author of No Sense of Place, affirms that technologically-mediated communication is a sui generis context that exists outside and is opposed to ordinary individuals. Or, according to Sherry Turkle, our sense of self and deeper understanding of our own ego is shaped by our own image as seen on a computer screen (The Second Self and Life on the Screen). In her view, media impelles on us a second sense of selfhood.At the other end of the spectrum, technology itself is seen as a consequence of cultural and social choices that precede it. Technology is society incarnate. Social media would thus become a consequence of a game that has already been played.ReadingsShifting Worlds of Strangers: Medium Theory and Changes in “Them” Versus “Us”Joshua Meyrowitz, Volume 67 Issue 1, Pages 59 – 7110.1111/j.1475-682X.1997.tb00429.xIdentity theories and social mediaWhat cultural and intellectual forces account for the social and intellectual ethos that fuels the social media revolution?

    16. 16. Nick Carr says:<br />“As the media theorist Marshall McLuhan pointed out in the 1960s, media are not just passive channels of information. They supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought. And what the Net seems to be doing is chipping away my capacity for concentration and contemplation. My mind now expects to take in information the way the Net distributes it: in a swiftly moving stream of particles. Once I was a scuba diver in the sea of words. Now I zip along the surface like a guy on a Jet Ski.”<br />
