English 102 | Composition and Rhetoric II| Fall 2018 The rubric for your persuasive research paper is fairly simple and straightforward: • • • • • • • • • • • • The essay needs to be thesis driven, meaning your argument should guide the paper. You should include an inciting incident (recent event) in your opening section (somewhere in your introduction) to establish exigency (sense of urgency) and kairos (timeliness). The “social justice” implications of your argument should be clear. Remember, social justice perspectives look at how the benefits and burdens of being a member of a society are distributed (or balanced) throughout the citizenry. Your research should reveal the complexity of your topic and should avoid stacking the deck or reducing the topic to two “pro/con” sides. You must cite at least six research sources in your argument; however, strong and excellent research papers will probably draw from 8-12 sources. Your essay must include correct MLA citations for each source referenced (this includes acknowledgment phrases, in-text parenthetical citations, quotation marks when directly quoting, and a corresponding entry in your Works Cited for each source). Structure, use of appeals, tone, and all other rhetorical considerations are up to you. Remember to transition between ideas and paragraphs. Your essay must be at least 6 full pages in length, not including your Works Cited page. Strong and excellent papers usually fall in the 8-10 page range. Of course, margins should be 1” all around, and font should be TNR size 12. Double space the entire essay and make sure the “after” spacing for line spacing is set to “0”. If you add visual images (pictures, graphs, etc.), cite them correctly and make sure your essay is 6 full pages prior to adding your images. Essays that do not meet the minimum source and/or page requirements are not eligible to receive a passing grade. FFN Due Date: October 30, 2018.

The Dangers of Social Media
Social media has become ubiquitous to interactions especially in the 21st century. Few
adults and even increasingly fewer teenagers can say that they do not participate in any social
media forum and this goes to show just how much interaction online has become essential for the
society. The main question that many people have been debating is whether the increased
interaction online improves relationships or instead leads to isolation. In 2012, the story of
Amanda Todd, a Canadian 15-year-old was trending after she committed suicide due to
cyberbullying by a stranger she met online. Similar incidences have been reported in many cases
and one of the latest was another 15-year-old Brazilian girl who committed suicide in 2017.
These two examples and many others lead to the unavoidable discussion regarding the effects of
online communication and connection on the health and relationships of the youth. Although
social media has allowed people to connect widely and enhance business networks, it has
presented far-reaching effects in the degradation of personal connections and endangering the
safety of young people online.
The meaning of the name social media simply is the media which allows people to
socialize and thus it should point towards the enhancement of social behavior among humans.
Human beings are social beings and communities are founded around this characteristic.
Professor Christian Fuchs who is the director of the Westminster Institute of Advanced Studies,
describes online sociality as consisting of “collective action, communication, communities,

connecting/networking, co-operation/collaboration…playing, sharing” (39). From this definition,
one almost think of a utopian society where sharing is enhanced, people interact freely, and the
results of these interactions are always positive. However, this is usually not the case and any
person who has experienced social media for a few years can attest to that.
Social media is not all about positive sharing, connecting, and collaboration that makes
the world a utopian online society. Instead, it is a society which, just like the conventional
communities, has flaws, crime, celebration and degradation, appreciation and rejection. What
makes it worse is that it is not a physical society rather an online, virtual one where people are
not afraid to hide behind their keyboards and screens and let out their true colors. Therefore, the
first step towards understanding social media is the understanding of the nature of society which
it entails. Online societies, unlike physical communities, have the potential of including a huge
connected number of people. What that means for the average social media user is that they can
meet virtually anyone who is on a particular social media application. In this world of unlimited
connection, the big issue still remains to be the safety of social media users as well as the
interactions that they have online.
One of the theories advanced by several scholars regarding social media is that while it
gives the sense of connection and community, it has indeed taken away the very fabric of
personal interactions among young people. Further, the theory suggests that while social media
may give one the sense of connectedness, it has a limited connection among people. Sherry
Turkle who is a professor of social sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of
the proponents of the theory claims that “digital connections and the social robot may offer the
illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship” (xxi). According to this author,
social media presents companionship to the lonely user and utilizes these vulnerabilities to

theory, the issue of whether social medi...
