The Facebook Observation

How do people change when the setting changes?

Our task for the next three nights is to spend a TOTAL of 30 minutes on Facebook to observe the following:

  • How do people show their levels of intimacy through the language of their posts or conversations on FB?
  • How do people show emotion on FB?
  • Observe one person and make conclusions about them through the: photos they post, the status posts they wrote and other information they share.

Make some conclusions on whether Facebook is a place that changes identity and bring your conclusions to class for a round table discussion on Tuesday March 12.

Please also post your inquiry question as a comment to this post.
