Sharon WangSociology 1509/21/2015Field Report 11.For my field project, I’m going to study the influence of Snapchat on an individual’s identity. This topic is interesting to me because personally, I find that my life often revolves around social media- how I communicate, how I want others to perceive me, how I keep track of my daily happenings. This topic is sociologically interesting because, in modern day society, it seems impossible to not use social media. We habitually are on our phones checking for updates, which affects our social institutions through our behaviors. This then leads to the buildup of our identities as influenced by social media. I believe that sociological knowledge about the social construction of this identity is valuable to many, including those who incorporate social media as a large part of their lives, whether it be sharing memories with others, or using social media as a primary basis of communication.
