The Socio-Digital Self This pertains to the role of Technology and the Internet in shaping the individual’s social self. Emphasis on the use of social media platforms and membership in virtual communities. Highlights the crucial role of the internet in forming the self and identity of millennial learners. Ways of Socializing Social Media - one of the innovations that improved people’s interaction and socialization processes. Defined as the websites and applications that make it easier to create and share information, ideas, and interests. It also allows people to create other forms of self-expression via virtual communities and networks. It has features that allow people to communicate to specific groups sharing common interests (through chat, video call, or posting of status and photos) and become members of virtual communities, be it globally or locally. ONLINE EMBODIMENT - people act differently since interaction in social media do not happen face to face and there is no physical presence required. People are less likely to display their real “selves” to others especially to strangers. Individuals are prone to create digital identities, which are different from their “real selves. “ Role Identities - are the characters and roles an individual creates a as a member of a particular social group. The self is composed of identities ranked by importance. The greater the commitment of an individual to a particular identity, the greater the importance of this identity. Hence, the importance of one’s particular role identity influences the behavioral choices an individual makes in a given situation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
