The McGraw Hill Reader: Issues across the Disciplines

Textbook

Tabitha Gaffney 's insight:

Ellen, Lee " Social Sites Are Becoming Too Much of a Good Thing" The McGraw-Hill Reader Issues Across the Disciplines. Ed. Gilbert H Muller. 11th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2011. 816-824. Print

 This page gives information about how people are getting tired of social media. The author Ellen Lee talks about how at the beginning when social media started that people thought it was interesting. People thought it was cool and it took a lot of time. She also expresses that people spend so many hours on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and others. The relevance is that Ellen Lee says social media gets old and people will learn to grow from it. Ellen Lee says "It's already so big that even if people start abandoning it, it's still attracting new people." I feel no matter how big social media gets it will constantly grow. Social media is a website for people to bond and get to know each other and always try to keep in touch. The material is very clear it came from the McGraw Hill Reader. The source is very reliable the name of the story is Social Sites Are Becoming Too Much of a Good Thing.

Tabitha Gaffney 's insight:

"Express Yourself." YouTube. YouTube, n.d. Web. 09 July 2014.

This YouTube website "Express Yourself", gives information about how new technology and new approaches that has been developed into the society. This ad was very interesting, it explains as soon as people find time they check social media. This video as soon as the young lady came into her office she went straight to her computer. The reason this video got chosen was because social media is more than a priority to people. Social media is a part of human beings day to day life. This source relates to my essay because Ellen says "Checking Facebook is routine," she said. "When they first get on the computer, they check their e-mail. People also log on to instant messaging. This video was very reliable and what was trying to get proven. This website might not of seem that believable but I was trying to prove a point.

Tabitha Gaffney 's insight:

"Halftime Mike - Mike Gingerich Podcast on Social Media, Business, and Life." ITunes. N.p., n.d. Web. 09 July 2014.

This podcast explains the making of social cites. In the podcast researchers explain what they want to do to make social cites better then the recent others. The researchers also talk about there job in the social media business. It compares to the essay because it explains how "Social networking sites have steadily attracted more people this year". But between August and September, traffic to almost all popular social networking sites fell: MySpace's audience dropped from 49.2 million to 47.2 million; Facebook from 8.9 million to 7.8 million; Microsoft's Windows Live Spaces from 8.2 million to 7.8 million. Although those losses could be attributed to students returning to school, the decline also comes as an increasing number of sites compete for attention and the newness has begun to fade. This podcast was pretty clear. He seems like what he was talking about was pretty reliable.

15 Sites and Apps Kids Are Heading to Beyond Facebook

15 Sites and Apps Kids Are Heading to Beyond Facebook | Social Sites | Scoop.it

Blog

"Advice from Common Sense Media editors. Next-generation apps that let users text, video-chat, shop, and share their pics and videos are attracting teens like catnip.

 

 

Tabitha Gaffney 's insight:

"15 Sites and Apps Kids Are Heading to Beyond Facebook." Reviews & Age Ratings. N.p., n.d. Web. 09 July 2014.

This blog gives information about younger kids heading beyond Facebook and MySpace. Younger kids get twitter and apps that can be accessed on their phones anytime and anywhere. Younger kids increase the number of sites; they have lots of self-expression. The relevance to this story is that in the story Ellen Lee talks about students returning to school and they do not have time. Students actually visit social sites but probably not just as often. "Social networking Web sites are relevant to people at different times in their lives," Stutzman said. "The more structure you have in your life, the less you need it as a crutch to understand the world around you. You already know what your friends are like. It's fun to look up their profile once in a while and check up on people, but it's not something you need every day." Bloggers were talking about how kids can make accounts without adult permission. That means there are probably way more young adults or teenagers that have a social media app. Social media will never grow old with young adults. This website was very interesting. "Heading to beyond Facebook" is a very reliable blog.

An Image

Tabitha Gaffney 's insight:

Digital image. N.p., n.d. Web

This page gives information about an image that says Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life. Facebook is a very serious social site that people use. Facebook is a social site where people share their lives. Facebook for a lot of people is the first thing that they check in the mornings. It relates to the story because Ellen Lee talks about how people share their personal life. People put on social media their favorite shows, movies and etc. Ellen Lee explains that type of sharing gets very old. My evaluation on this website is it was very interesting. It was a little hard finding information because information was scattered all over the place.

When reading it a lot of this were all over the place and very hard to read.

This page "school, parents must keep up with social cites" talks about how free expression in tweeting.

Oftentimes, the adult community has been slow to catch on to these trends or has ignored them entirely. The rapidity of changes deterred adults". Ellen talks about how people express themselves. "If you believe the buzz, the latest incarnation of the Web is all about sharing, connecting and community. Social networking sites drawing new users into the fold each day. Users create profiles about themselves, link to their friends and post photos, messages and updates about their daily lives. She strongly believe people grow from that.
