- It has changed communication because people don't even communicate physically, all they do is talk over social media. We rarely have conversations face to face.
Slide 3.)Define Immediacy, Permanence and Lack of Control as they pertain to the Internet and explain how Immediacy, Permanence and Lack of Control affect both our offline and our online identities and lives. Include at least one example for each.
-Immediacy is the immediance of something happening especially when posting. It affects offline because you don't see the affect and online because others can save within a second.
Ex:When I post a picture someone likes it as soon as it was posted
-Permanence is once it's posted it never deletes and it affects both offline and online because when you think its deleted its really not because others have already saw it/save it.
Ex: I post a picture and delete it but somebody reposted/saved it before i deleted it
-Lack of control is when you have no control over what you have posted and it affects both offline and online because you can't do anything to the post once you have posted it.
Ex: I post a video but I have no control over who/what happens to it

Cyber Bullying Stories: Ashley’s New Website, Unknown to Her
This story was about a girl who just started using social media. She posted pictures on social media and another student took those pictures and made a fake account about her personal information and more. It affected her life because she started losing friends although the damage could have been way worse. This was simply caused because another child had spare time on their hands and got caught up in social media.
Lack of control played a major role in this because Ashley had no control over what the other student did. She never knew she would end up in a situation like this. Permanence played a role in this situation because the account she made was permanent and also it was public. Immediacy caused everything to be posted in a rapid amount of time without her knowing anything.
My advice to Ashley is just remain calm in this situation because you are innocent. As a person who had this happen to me is don't try to convince people who are just making the situation worse that it's not you. The best thing to do is just get the cops involved because they can trace it back to whoever did this with an instint second. So just remain calm and stay away from the people who are trying to make it worse and let a teacher know if it gets that bad!
