Questions start to raise of what is real and what is not; is there anyone out there that you can truly trust when the internet is so expansive and untruthful.
If you were to go onto an online dating site, you will probably question everything that a person writes in their bio.
As Nancy Baym (2010) writes, “In lean media, people have more ability to expand, manipulate, multiply, and distort the identities they present to others.” We start to believe in the lies we make up and lose our sense of reality.
If you continue with the same lie, eventually you yourself believe that it is true.
One of those ways we connect is through social media, such as Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
With the increase of social media and the amount of things people are able to do on these platforms, there are a lot of people who incorporate it into their whole being.My goal for this paper was to show people how social media, which now affects every aspect of our lives, changes how we perceive others identities and our own.I think I was able to accomplish this by talking about the different things people can face while they are on the internet as well as some people' choice to create a new person that they could live through.With apps like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram people try to create a facade of themselves.They do things they wouldn’t do in the real world, a new personality is formed to look like someone different.That we'll be forgotten by others and that our own memories will begin to fade, changing the person that we are.Many people try to create a new self through social media.This causes people to be afraid to believe what is put forth in front of them.This distrust makes a person want to be a little untruthful themselves, if someone else is doing it why not me?Oath will also provide relevant ads to you on our partners' products.To give you a better overall experience, we want to provide relevant ads that are more useful to you.
