Discussion 1 

Statuses and Social Networks

Interaction we have with others takes place within a social structure—society’s framework that impacts our behavior, attitudes, et cetera. The statuses that we hold can help to identify our locations within the social structure. Identify several of your statuses and describe how each of your statuses could influence your behavior or perceptions. Respond to the following questions:

  • The trend in modern society is for ascribed statuses to become less important. Instead our emphasis is on achieved statuses. Do you think this is the case? Why or why not?
  • What role do you think virtual worlds like Facebook play in our understanding of statuses?
  • Looking at social media sites to which you belong, what type of statuses (in the sociological sense) do people typically emphasize?

Discussion 2 

Group Behavior and Conformity

We tend to think that our behavior and who we are as people is independent of those around us. The people we encounter and the groups we belong to, however, help to shape our behavior—oftentimes in ways we are not aware. Watch the video, Conformity: In the Real-Life Lab (see Resources) and respond to the following questions in your initial post:

  • What impact do social expectations of the group, including role expectations, have on your behaviors and self-identity?
  • What role might social status play when looking at peer pressure and conformity?
  • How do social hierarchies affect how we respond?
  • Can you think of any examples from your personal life where a group has affected your behavior?

Discussion 3 

Dramaturgy in Everyday Life

Dramaturgy is an approach that analyzes social life in terms of the stage. Review Suguira’s “Goffman and the Web” reading (see Resources) and analyze your own life from a dramaturgical perspective. Respond to the following:

  • What are some instances where you use the front stage? The back stage?
  • Why do you use theses stages at different points during your day?
  • What examples of impression management do you encounter daily?
  • How does your analysis differ based on location (work versus home)?
