  • “ the topic I’ve chosen for the final two assignments in this course is ..... . With an ever growing amount of young people using social networking sites I wanted to look at how this is effecting them both positively and negatively. “Talk about the title and what I want to cover.. ***needs to be expanded***
  • - “ we all use social networks in some form, pretty much everyone who uses the internet does. Whether its facebook to keep in touch with our friends, youtube to share videos with the whole world or twitter to tell people what we’ve had for breakfast. We are all evolved to some extent. Particularly our generation, we grew up around computers and using them to keep in touch just seems like second nature to most of us.“Talk about how we all know the different social networks, name a few and talk about how much we use them, how everyone we know has an account on one of them... These two slides need to introduce all the topics I will be discussing.
  • How often we use social networking – 60% of people who use the internet use social networks and 90% of people between 18-24 use social networks... That’s a lot of people.
  • The amount of time we spend on them is almost frightening. Although 15min a day doesn’t sound like much but if we spent it going for a run or doing moderate exercise we could extend our lives by up to three years.. Recent study in Taiwan. Students spend even more and studies found that around 50% spend more than 3 hours a week..
  • **Start talking about the idea of multiple identities.**Online profiles:“Everyone on a social networking site gets to create a profile. Whether its simple, just a picture, bio and name like on twitter up to the relatively more complex ones like facebook where each user can have videos pictures pages they’ve liked and of course their wall. Whatever type of profile it is it gives users the chance to create a online version of themselves. “
  • Online Image: “most people will create a profile that they try and keep it a relatively accurate representation of themselves. However no one really knows you online... they know the side of you that you want them to. That doesn't mean you’re hiding anything, it just means that your profile isn’t actually you. Take this guy for example, I’m sure at somepoint he did play guitar, he’s not lieing, but you can be damn sure he doesn’t anymore” (- douglaskarr, livefrey)
  • Online Behavour:“The fact that its not really you online gives people the opportunity to act how they like. Again, most people on social networking sites behave pretty well but it isn’t them. And this is something thats easily forgotten. The idea that everybody only has one identity is gone and the person you are friends with online is not necessarily that person in real life.”“I wouldnt go as far as saying it cause split personality but people can become very involved in this digital world. Esp at a younger age teenagers often try and make they’re profiles about who they want to be not who they are.
  • “The problem with this is if you dont really know the people you are friends with online are they really your friends? I think these “hollow” relationships can have a pretty detrimental effect on people. No matter how many online friends someone has they may be very lonely IRL.Just because you know someone online does NOT mean you know the real them.Which bring me on to a tragic this past year.- Lonelyness?Maybe the idea that someones online identity is the real them? Or that they at least want it to be.

  • Breaking down social barriers. -” Despite the fact that I don’t think you can ever really know someone online social networking can be very useful in establishing certain relationships. Because pretty much everyone has access to the internet it doesn’t matter who you are, you can join a site of your choice and meet people.
  • Using sites like delicious it can be very easy to find people with similar interests as you. I think this is extremely useful in breaking down social barriers. It enables people esp. from disadvantaged backgrounds to meet people with similar interests. Through sharing of information in may enable young people to gain knowledge that they would not otherwise have been able to access. It allows them to create a network of like minded people regardless of social/economic background which is a very healthy thing.”
  • Maintaining relationships after school or college is a very useful aspect of social networking. - “This idea of being able to forge relationships across the world is one of the main reasons people join social networks. The other is to maintain already excising relationships. For our age group this is a huge bonus!
  • Most of us just left school a year or two ago and want to keep in touch with our friends who don’t go to the same college as us. And before we know it we’ll be done college too and god knows where we’ll be in two or three years. For this social networking is perfect! It means we can keep in touch effortlessly and won’t lose touch because it’s as simple as clicking on their profile to contact them.
  • the fact that its so easy to contact friends is making it easier for our generation to maintain relationships. The instant contact means we are changing the way we interact. Even simple events like birthdays are no longer organised in person. Everything we do is through social networking. While its great that we can easily contact everyone it can often take away from the intimacy, its too easy to invite someone to an event and most times its actualy easier than not inviting them.
  • We don't even have to be at home anymore. With the development of smart phones we can log into facebook or twitter or what ever we use anywhere we want and contact our friends. You can even share videos and pictures directly to the internet.
  • Because its so easy to keep in contact, there is a huge amount of information about how other people are living their lives, it can be easy to feel that we can’t compete. We might also feel some pressure to demonstrate a certain persona, as we know that people are always watching us. It can feel like we’ve traded a real-life rat race for an online one, andour successes can feel diminished and our failures amplified.
  • Never before have the way teenagers interact changed so much in the space of 10 years or so.The still is alot of research going into it and only time will tell how it really effected us.I don’t think it has harmed us, but it certainly can be risky.
  • - Surveymonkey - Will use to get an idea of how you all use social networking in your daily lives and who you communicate with..
