Tomike's Blog For Communication

This blog post is an example of face to face mode which is discussed in the article Modeof technology by Quan Hoose. The purpose of this blog is to an inform its audience of why face to face is still a very important method needed in communication even though we now have various ways to communicate online such as email, im, text messaging which are all discussed in the article.

 

The blog post is a good example because it gives different results of what the article states. The article does a study of what is used frequently and face to face was the second highest mode used but the blog post is about a company that feel they are loosing their face to face communication and need to get it back because all of their employers use email as a mode to use which wasnt frequent in the article. I believe be the reason why the data vary is because of the article age group that they were studying which just proves that those statistics may only be accurate for that age group.

Tomike's Blog For Communication: Twitter post using sms

This blog post is an example of the article Modes of technology by Quan Hoose.The purpose of the blog is to show how through using smart phones the team was able to communicate with each other by using the texting mode. Each group had to communicate with each other while only member stayed in the class and recieved instructions and then distrubuted the message to the rest of the group using text messaging on their phone.

 

I chose this blog as an example because through the use of text messaging the group was able to communicate with each other quickly to tell them where the person needed to go.

 

This blog post relates to the article because in the article it states that a frequently used mode of communication in today is text messaging and although the group had the option to talk on the phone nobody did instead they texted and their reason behind it was that it was faster and easier which is a trend in the new generation.

Join linkedin

This video is an example of informal cmc which is discussed in the article formality by Hrastinski. The purpose of this video was to explain to college students what their group project was going to be about and why they should join linked it.

 

The way in which the group member say their information is very informal. The tone is just very conversational and the language in which they use is informal and was not planned out and really didnt have structure. The video was just talking to people in a informal way to get their point across. It was not authority mandatory, they were dressed down which shows it wasn't meant to be professional.

 

In this video the particpants are very interactive and the information is not content based which is the reason why I chose this video for non formal cmc. The video was just a group work which was created with a cell phone and was informal.

This webpage is an example of what the article Networking discusses by Boyd & Ellison. The purpose of this webpage is to inform college students that they should join LinkeIn so that they can network in a professional manner.  What makes this webpage relate to what is discussed in the article is that the creators of the webpage chose the social network site facebook to communicate with their friends why they should join LinkedIn. Facebook as stated in the article allows you to create different networks through the use of friends. For example you post something and then a friend comments on it which allows theirs friend to see that they posted on your wall and then the can respond if they want to which creates this network and now all of these people are now facebook friends. 

 

The webpage is a good example of networking because through the use of facebook they could requests friends and have there friends like the page which leads to more people viewing the page and can get what they wanted accomplished. Social networks such as facebook are very popular and have creates networks.

Tomike's Blog For Communication: Identity Management

This blog post is an example of Self-promotion and image management that Elison, Heino, and Gibb discuss in their article.  The purpose of this blog post is to show how when people are online they create their own identities whether it be an actual self, ideal self, or what they feel they ought to be.

 

In the article "Self promotion and image management" it talks about how people while on dating site misrepresenting themself seem to be a very common thing. Peopl make up stories about how they look, personality etc. In the blog post the person discusses how when blogging they present an ideal self which is their alter ego and face to face they would dare say the stuff they type on their blog which shows that the article is right. Online people can present what they feel like to you.

 

I chose this blog because it fits with the article Self promotion and image management, the blog itself doesn't have the creator full or real name for that matter which shows you that online you can create yourself to be whatever it is that the person desires. The artice by Elison, Heino, and Gibb are researching to see how much honesty actually goes on online and concludes that there is alot misrepresentation and this blog does the same thing.

This facebook page is an example of a type of compute mediated mode used which is discussed in the article Modesof Technology by Quan Hoose. The purpose of the facebook page is to inform college student why they should join linked in. On this page friends are allowed to use the chat feature of facebook which works as an IM messaging mode which is used frequently according to the article.

 

The article states students prefer to IM because they can  do multiple things at once. They can do homework visit multiple sites, talk on the phone and still use the mode of IM messaging.

 

This facebook page is a good example because the chat feature works just like IM messaging. If you keep your facebook page open and when people IM message you are alerted and able to rspond write away which is what worked for this facebook page. If people had question they were able to IM and recieve an aswer quickly.

It is meant to be done simutaneously like in a chat room.

Peopl who chat on the blog do not see it as just typing but uses the blog as a away to communicate with other people and on this particular blog people shared something that they used and told whether or not Linked In was beneficial or not

Tomike's Blog For Communication

This blog post is an example of the article / video clip that Gorman discusses. Gorman video clip discusses how over the interenet the one problem that we get when getting information is noise because just as how people can present themselves in one way which isnt the actual facts the can make up fact and it happens all the time.

 

The purpose of this blog post shows how one individual on three different methods of communication via online had three different selves presented to the online world. I feel this blog post represent filtering and curating because people when online have to curate and filter what they can decide what actually is true.

 

This blog post shows that people are misleading and misrepresent online all the time which is what Gorman is telling his audience and the reason why he created his website . He considers himself a curator and gets all the information and then does necessary research to make sure his facts are true and filters out whats false. This is necessary because people can blog about and say anything they want to online. This blog creator doesnt even reveal its real name which proves that online you just cant believe everything.

Tomike's Blog For Communication: Community for Lesbians

This blog post is an example of community building that Ellison, Steinfield and Camp discusses in their article.  The purpose of this blog post is to show what a community is and in doing so it discusses about a community for lesbians.  The blog post gives you reason why lesbians joins a community and then provides a website that lesbians can go to get resources to become apart of an online community or where they can find a community center for lesbians in their city.

 

The article by Ellison, Steinfield , and Camp do a study on facebook to see if community building can be achieved on online through a social site. The blog post shows that community building can be done online and face to face. Having a community build online though gives you anonminity and allows you to create your ideal self but it allows you to keep in contact with a community that you belong to while not having to actually see the people in the community face to face. The blog post shows just that by providing the website  www.lgbtcenters.org that building community relationships can be done and is done an informal way. The blog post goes into detail about why lesbians become members of these communites and how they stay in contact with one another which is what the article the benefits of facebook attempts to do.
