After completing the reading for Week 8, write a post that reflects on the contemporary discourse around youth use of social media technologies. As a starting point for your post, find a recent example from media discourse. After (very briefly) summarizing your example, provide a critical response to it that puts it in conversation with (some of) the assigned readings. You should address both the content of the example and the discursive framing employed by the example. Your post should demonstrate that you have thoughtfully engaged with the assigned readings and can use the concepts in them to interpret new examples.
As usual, be sure to tag your post appropriately (use “blog3” this time), and to provide hyperlinks to all authors and texts you mention.
See the Instructions for Blogging page for more specific guidelines about crafting your post.
