Effects of Social Media

Effects of Social Media
Research the effects of social media on a specific age group and write 3-5 pages in which you make a recommendation for future research on the topic.

In this assessment, you will consider the role played by social networking, microblogging, and online dating services in our lives. Some researchers, such as Joinson, McKenna, Postmes, & Reips (2009), have found that using technology to communicate also facilitates offline communication and even enhances our social and kinship connections. Others who compared users and nonusers of technology have found no significant differences between the two. Researchers have focused on how people protect their privacy (perceived and actual) in an online space, how trust levels impact disclosure in cyberspace, and even how one portrays his or her real (true) self-online.

The Assessment 4 Context document contains important information on the following topics related to the implications of social media:

Social relationships.

To prepare for this assessment, complete the following:

Choose a specific age group to research: children, teens, young adults, middle-aged adults, or seniors.

References must be mostly scholarly in nature. In other words, direct your research to professional psychology journals and texts, as well as current articles from the media (for example, articles from PewResearch, professional journals, and respected media).
