Define Immediacy, Permanence and Lack of Control as they pertain to the Internet.
Immediacy means that once you post something it’s immediately out there and everyone has it.
Lack of Control means something you post on the internet is in someone or something else's control and you can’t make changes to it.
Permanency means that once you post something it’s out there and you can’t take it back.
An explanation of how Immediacy, Permanence and Lack of Control affect both our offline and our online identities and lives. Include at least one example.
Immediacy controls our online life by something being posted out there spreading fast, it controls our offline life by people knowing what you’ve said and either gratifying you or shaming you about what you posted. An example of this is: Someone posts a picture of themselves saying they are pretty/handsome and bully them by saying that they are egotistical or self centered.
Permanence controls our online life by something being posted and being out there forever, it controls our offline life by people bullying/gratifying the person for posting what they posted. An example of this is: Someone posts a picture of their dog and people may comment “Your dog is so cute” you would than be gratified by something that you posted
Lack of control controls our online life by something you post on the internet is in someone or something else's control and you can’t make changes to it, it controls our offline life by someone maybe having your post and they can do whatever they want with it. An example of this is: You post a picture of yourself in a bathing suit and someone takes it and photoshops it, or spread it around and humiliate you
