Re: METARMOPHOSIS:TERRORISM

Wow it seems like you have a lot of great information! What you said about terrorists using the media is true. Acts of terrorism were very different before social media and media and was big. Now, not only can everyone in the area where the act was committed be affected, but also anyone online who sees a video, or some sort of footage of the attack. Now with one act of terrorism you can send the whole world in panic which is a very scary thing. Great research!

Re: MOTIVATION FACTORS OF COSMETIC SURGERY

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
It's worth reading some work around aesthetics, which is the philosophical study of beauty and taste. There are some papers on Stanford's website that are worth looking at. I also highly recommend listening to the BBC podcast "What is Beauty." There are a large number of questions that are worth asking on the subject of beauty in general. It's also worth noting that cosmetic surgery can be addictive, there are probably some documentaries on the subject lying around the net.

Re: So which pictures do you find the most effective?

I think the first one was by far the most effective. It wasn't overly violent, like the fifth one, or a bit tricky to figure out like the second one. It was easy to understand exactly what the message was without feeling like as a viewer you were being attacked morally or something. In other words, it was more a presentation of facts rather than an accusation of wrongdoing. It leaves the decision of what to do up to the viewer. Also, it showed life, not death - presenting the beauty of...

Personally I think the 6th picture is the most effective one. The picture clearly show how human's behaviour directly effect the sharks and other sea animals. although, the picture look a little bit violent, but I think that's a great way to get people to pay attention.

Re: So which pictures do you find the most effective?

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I agree with Joulin I also think the 6th photo is the most effective. The imagery feels modern and simple, which makes the violence seem less over the top. The colours and design just resonate more with our digitized world.

I think the 4th is more effective, because of its wide range of view and also from its visibility "colour",also it's eye capturing because it created an impression that the plate is hollow,I can only describe that as beautiful!

I think the sixth one as well, but I also find the fifth photo very powerful. Even though it is a little more graphic it sends a clear and powerful message to the viewer.

This is pretty cool. What got you hooked into the Japanese culture or language? I recently found out that I'm 1/4 Japanese (as my grandfather was adopted) My dad spent a fair amount of time in Japan (and knows how to speak it) and I've been dying to visit the place one day. Cool study though!

Wow this is some really great and interesting research. I like how you not only gave teen statistics, but adult statistics as well.

Re: Depression and Social Media Research

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
This is really interesting because they didn't have these problems before. Before social media was invented I wonder how many less people suffered from depression. I might not be depressed but I think we all have are moments where we are like " Wow, she is really pretty, I am so ugly." When really you aren't, everyone has their own type of beauty. That is just my theory. Can't wait to see what you find out next.

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think your project was really successful, Emily! A lot of the stuff that you have talked about in your posts I believe is really important, as you said in this summary. I wonder if it may be a good idea to use your new research from this project to spread more awareness about depression and social media. I've found people often take others more seriously when they talk about important issues with research to back them up. Maybe even making a youtube video to put on Facebook, or something...

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

Haleigh Strickler (LFAS) ·
I just wanted to add my own idea to this, although it may seem obvious. I think one of the reasons why people may be more willing to share their thoughts online is the anonymity of it. They may share with a complete stranger who's judgement isn't clouded by personal connection, and can look at it with objectivity. I know that people with depression don't usually like talking about it, or getting special treatment or pity form people in their life. That's at least what I've noticed, and it...

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think that this was a very cool topic, and all of your research is true! I think that everyone should know how hurtful it can be when someone comments something rude on social media. It can effect people more than we think. I think that if everyone knows what we know, people would be more respectful and think about what they are posting on social media. I really liked reading your research, and good luck on your next project!

This was an interesting post, Rosemary! I'm looking forward to seeing the survey results. Are you planning on opening the survey to Canadian butterfly effect students as well? Also, I wonder what article you found on the Huffington post? Can you possibly put links on your research posts from now on? It's helpful for people reading your posts in understanding where your statistics are coming from.

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Great post! It's really crazy and slightly concerning to see those statistic. We have definatley grow to be a very technilogically driven society. Everyone typically has upwards of one device, and I would go as far as saying that a lot of people are addicted to their devices. They get anxious or nervous when away from them for a while, or feel awkward just being with themselves, especially I find in social gatherings when they are alone or don't really have anyone to talk to. It will be...

Hey Rosemary, I do believe that in today's society , we use technology a lot. I will admit that I spend some of my free time on my phone either on social media or playing games. But I also believe phones can be useful, even if you are addicted to it. I think something that would be good for you to look into would be the pros and cons of phones/technology. Hope this helps

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

I think this is very interesting! Many people, teens especially, are addicted to their phones, and spent too much time on them. I am guilty of this too. I spend a lot of time on my phone, and have numerous social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and more). All of my friends, and basically everyone at my school have all of these accounts, and most likely spend at least 3 hours a day on them. Social media is a huge part of society right now, and I think will continue to...

Hi Rosemary, Your research is really interesting and I'm eager to see what you find through your survey!

Hey Rosemary, cool research! Lots of people spend a lot of time using electronics. And although not everything about that is bad it is certainly an addiction. I think with a tool such as the internet there is easy access to a wealth of knowledge. Yet, there are also many corrupt, and incredible sources. It will be interesting to see the outcome of your survey so that we may cross reference it with the huffington post stats. Just as an aside it may be wise to use more than one sight when...

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Hi Rosemary, this is very interesting! These statistics are very accurate by what I see day to day, but I was wondering, are these all the same in different countries? Do you think these statistics would differ if they were in a developing country? I found some examples of statistics in some different countries, if you would like to look at them: http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/13/...l-media-consumption/ https://www.emarketer.com/Arti...rking-Mexico/1013741...

Re: SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION STATISTICS.

Hello moira definitely its very true that when some of the teens end up being alone in social gatherings or get bored,the only option most of them end up with is scrolling their phones and getting the trending updates whenever its possible for them to.Its so surprising that i end up categorizing myself in the same case as mentioned above which is a bit hard to try and stop the addiction.

Re: Mental Illness in the Media

I think you hit the nail on the head Jenna. Such uneasiness around any topic can cause many problems as it tends to add a component of obscurity to the mix. In the case of mental illness it is not only harmful in terms of creating a distorted sense of shame around talking about the subject, but it can also negatively affect those directly involved (With mental illnesses). People with mental illnesses, for the most part, do not want to accept that they are mentally ill and seldom seek help on...

Hey Jenna! This is an awesome topic. I agree that mental illness is shown in a negative light in the media. I personally love watching crime shows, such as Law & Order: SVU and Hawaii 5.0. along with (too many) others, and I believe that without my cognizance, my view of people with mental illnesses has changed. Not only those TV shows, but many movies too, depict the mentally ill in a completely negative way. They are shown to be murderers, or creeps, but in reality many people with...

Hey Haleigh, I really like your topic! I think with trying to learn a new language through media is fun because you are not only learning the language but you are also learning the culture.

Hi Rosemary, very interesting topic and I admire the way you are approaching it. I had a suggestion on a reason that social media is addicting and how it can affect us off-screen, if you would like to add that to research. A big reason that people get social media or remain using it is the fact that celebrities also use it. They keep up with it to see what celebrities may be doing, what's new, etc. The problem with this is that it makes these people want to remain on social media and...

Hello Rosemary, After reading your post I was overly happy that you were going to look into teens in particular and social media becuase it is a real problem. In my opinion the reason why teens are so addicted to social media is because everyone comunicates through it. No one knows each other's phone numbers anymore all teens do is go into Instagram for example and dm their friends. Here are some links that explain teens and social media http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/9696378...

Re: Background of Social media addiction.

Hey Rosemary! A year or two back I actually did a project on this exact same subject! I know you've already heard the opinions of multiple other people, but I think we overuse social media simply because it's there. It's so easy to access, so why wouldn't we use it? It's always there to pass the time, so in the moment, there isn't really a reason not to use it, but the time adds up and people don't realize it, even if it seems like you aren't even using it. Here are some links to help!!!
