CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College Social Media Communication Journal
asks you to create a journal of every time you use any social networking service or site (including Snapchat, Tik
Tok, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Yelp, LinkedIn, etc.) in one 8 hour period.
Check in every hour to record what kinds of social media you have been using during that hour. I would recommend using a spreadsheet or a table for each on your word file, though you can write on a piece of paper and take a picture as well.
You will need to submit this log.
At the end of the 8 hour period write a 2 page paper about the trends in your social media usage.
FOR YOUR JOURNAL, YOU ARE ASKED TO HAVE AN ENTRY FOR EACH OF THE 8 HOURS.
asks you to stay off social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat, etc.) for as long as you can
(up to 8 hours). IF YOU DECIDE, YOU CAN ALSO STAY OFF ALL TECHNOLOGY FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN.
During this period please keep a journal documenting your feelings after every hour.
After this 8-hour period, please write a 2-3 page double-spaced reflection on your experience. If you stop before 8 hours, please indicate what made you finally stop.
For this part, please try to give up ALL technology usage for as long as you can (including cellular phone, computer, etc.).
In short, you will be asked to submit four things:
1. A list or table for all social media platforms used in a 8-hour period for Part I (worth 5 points);
2. A 2-3 page reflection on trends in social media platform usage during the period in Part I (worth 10 points);
3. a journal documenting every hour you did not use social media or technology in Part II (worth 5 points);
and a final reflection paper on your experience in Part II
