Social Media and Societal Standards

 I’m studying stereotypes and cultural norms on social media.

– Have you seen stereotypes on social media?

-Do your friends and contacts share some social norms that you notice?

-What do your ads tell you – any stereotypes there?

Write at least 3 pages answering these questions using social media, be sure to demonstrate with examples. Include a theory from last week if you see evidence of one. Were you surprised or did you find what you thought you would? Did that expectation affect what you found? How can you tell? 

Last week theories
