  2. In what ways has the internet affected how you see reality? Explain your response using the symbolic interactionist perspective. Make sure your response is clear.

    REPLY:

Media has affected social interactions due to the information it can provide and because of how widespread it is. Due to this, it has both the ability to strengthen and weaken human connections. Media has spread misinformation along with information as shown in just the pandemic. Particularly, election season. Some media outlets were spreading misinformation concerning the vaccines and behaviors of our past president. However, in that similar span of time, there was also a great connection when it came to the murder of George Floyd. Systematic racism had a severe call out globally which also impacted how laws were perceived and changed (like the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act this year), along with human interaction itself. There was a sense of togetherness for many to prevent more bloodshed and harm from happening by the results of hate crimes and bigotry. It’s slowly becoming more of a habit to celebrate and accept each other’s differences but not those that come at the expense of others and run deep in bigotry.
It’s

affected my reality severely starting at the beginning of the pandemic.

My senior year was cut short and all of a sudden, there was a global

sickness that terrified me and a wrongful murder that outraged me along

with things I found out later after that specific event. It was a lot

for me to deal with, especially since I had just turned 18 two months

later and was also ready to really start getting together my young adult

life. Not just mentally and emotionally, but also politically and

morally. I was so ready

to vote for the first time and I took a lot of time to speak on topics

that were important for me as I did more research on social media (we

all had so much time on our hands in the beginning of the pandemic

anyways) like LGBTQ+ rights, feminism/gender equality, climate change,

and the fight against systemic racism. Immediately, I learned on my own

that the world needed a lot of things that needed to be addressed and

handled before there was no coming back. To be honest, all I see is just

a hard and lonely world now after all of that.
