Everyday media ideologies: Just as there are various language ideologies (ideas and value systems around language and how it works), there are also varied media ideologies that apply to a given communication tool (social media, for example). In Ilana Gershon’s study of Facebook, The Breakup 2.0, she defines media ideologies as “a set of beliefs about communicative technologies with which users and designers explain structure and meaning. That is to say, what people think about the media they use will shape the way they use media” (p. 3). Choose one social media platform that you use regularly and observe your own use of this platform over a few days. In at least 750 words (3 double-spaced pages), analyze your media ideologies surrounding this platform. Some questions to consider:
1. What forms of communication do you use the platform for?
2. What, in your view, are some of the (unstated) rules of communicating over this platform? (how should posts or responses work? is there a time frame for responding over this medium? What constitutes in/appropriate uses of this platform?
3. As a user, what different semiotic modalities (visuals, sounds, etc.) go into participating on this platform? When and how are the different modalities used?
4. Key: Have you ever had a disagreement with someone about how to use a social media platform? (in other words, have you encountered a different media ideology than your own while using this platform? What misunderstandings did this generate, and how were they resolved, or not?)
Formatting: Double-spaced, 1” margins, 12 pt font.
Citation Style: If you quote a source from this course, or elsewhere, directly or indirectly, please cite the source using The Chicago Manual of Style’s author-date format. Please also provide a list of references at the end of your paper.
The additional materials include:
1) Essay instruction
2) a chapter from The Breakup 2.0: Disconnecting over New Media; please use this reading as a source to guide you to write this essay.
Please also use some outside sources.
Here are some examples (Links to an external site.) of how to cite using the author-date format, and how to list references for different kinds of texts using the Chicago style.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
