What do you think are the three most important points Turkle makes?
- Use two key concepts (ex: looking-glass, significant others, reference group, generalized others, staged performance, etc.) and two key concepts from Chapter 5 (hierarchies, appropriate deference, biases and stereotypes, etc.) to sociologically expand upon and develop the three most important points made by Turkle (#1, above).
- How has digital communication and/or social media impacted you? How has it changed your own presentation of self? How has it changed the family structure in which you live?
- What do you see as an advantage of digital communication technologies and social media? What do you see as a disadvantage?
