of Social Media "Using electronic media

Alone together: why we expect more from technology and less from each other. New York: Basic Books. Bibliography First Time Meeting Because of digital media companies are now able to get most of their information out at a faster rate than ever.

Companies are now able to spread their promotion through email, social networking, their websites and internet ads.

With new technology incorporated into ads, such as interactive promotions, the user is also able to send back information to companies so they can adjust to their intended audience Business How many times have you seen one of your friends post about things that’s bothering them?

With networking people who are in need of comforting are able to express their feelings usually without negative reactions, and mostly with a friend giving comforting words.

With this ability to share moments, be it good or bad, we now the opportunity to empathize with each other on a greater scale.

You can think about it as a way to have group therapy without having to pay for it. Comfort What’s the main point of social mediums such as Facebook, Twitter, Etc? Friends!

It’s never been easier for people to make friends.

A lot more people know of each other.

Even if you sometimes never meet these people in real life, you still communicate with them even if it’s unintentional.

If you post on your wall, or send a tweet, you are communicating with everyone on the internet. Millions of people have the opportunity to be included in your life experiences Friends For anyone that has family members in other countries, you remember how hard it was to get in contact with them. You normally would have to pay a premium to be able to get connected with them via telephones.

Then came social media. Family members in different states, cities and countries were able to communicate with each other more frequently.

Just being able to wish your family members a happy birthday, or a Merry Christmas with the click of button is amazing. International Communication and Its Impact
on Communication Communication becomes impersonal - instead of writing notes to 1 person, you share your ideas with everyone in your "Friends" or "Followers" list "Friends become fans" (Turkle 181) "When we Tweet or write to hundreds or thousands of Facebook friends as a group, we treat individuals as a unit." (Turkle 187) Social Media and the Self Berko, R. M., Wolvin, A. D., Wolvin, D. R., & Aitken, J. E. (2012).

helps us to understand others. Without nonverbals, our communication lacks emotion... We use emoticons as substitutes for nonverbals, but... Do these describe all of your emotions? Social Media is Impersonal Social media changes the way you communicate your identity to the world through self-disclosure. Text Languages Nonverbal Communication is Lost Our generation has created new forms of language through text. Not all people like or understand them.

"The latest complaint from Facebook users is that some of them have been seeing private messages show up on their own timeline — a series of posts and pictures stretching back months or years — and even friends' timelines." (CBC News) According to a CNN survey, 1 in 4 users lie on their Facebook profiles because of privacy concerns. They create fake names, birth dates, and other information to protect their identities.
