Social Media

Racial and gender assumptions are drawn from physical social structures differently than in online social structures. In other words, identity works differently in social media than in the physical social world, so how we perform and consume cues and expectations about race and gender (and other social identities) are different.

If you agree with that proposition, why do you think that is? Can you think of an example that illustrates how social identity works differently in social media than in other contexts?

If you disagree, explain why. What’s an example that shows there is no significant difference?
