New York magazine's "Science of Us" editor explains the compelling psychology of awkwardness and asks: What if the moments that make us feel most awkward are actually valuable? Have you ever said good-bye to someone, only to discover that you're both walking in the same direction? Or had your next thought fly out of your brain in the middle of a presentation? Or accidentally liked an old photo on someone's Instagram or Facebook, thus revealing yourself to be a creepy social media stalker? Melissa Dahl, editor of New York magazine's "Science of Us" website, has. After a lifetime of cringing, she became intrigued by awkwardness: a universal but underappreciated emotion. In this witty and compassionate book, Dahl explores the oddest, cringiest corners of our world. She chats with strangers on the busy New York City subway, goes on awkward friend dates using a "Tinder-for-friendship" app, takes improv comedy lessons, and even reads aloud from her (highly embarrassing!) middle school diary to a crowd of strangers. After all of that, she realizes: Awkward moments are opportunities to test yourself. When everyone else is pretending to have it under control, you can be a little braver and grow a little bigger - while remaining true to your awkward self. And along the way, you might find that awkward moments unite us in our mutual human ridiculousness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Dahl.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Cringeworthy, written and read by Melissa Dahl. Have you ever said good-bye to someone, only to discover that you're both walking in the same direction? Or had your next thought fly out of your brain in the middle of a presentation? Or accidentally liked an old photo on someone's Instagram or Facebook, thus revealing yourself to be a creepy social media stalker? Melissa Dahl, New York magazine's Science of Us editor, has experienced all of those awkward situations and many more. Now she offers a thoughtful, original take on what it really means to feel awkward. She invites you to follow her into all sorts of mortifying moments, drawing on personal experience and in-depth psychological research to answer questions you've probably pondered at some point, such as: Why are situations without clear rules most likely to turn awkward? Are people really judging us as harshly as we think they are? Does anyone ever truly outgrow their awkward teenage self? If you can learn to tolerate life's most awkward situations - networking, difficult conversations, hearing the sound of your own terrible voice - your awkwardness can be a secret weapon to making better, more memorable impressions. When everyone else is pretending to have it under control, you can be a little braver and grow a little bigger. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Dahl.

ShorttitleAs social network sites like MySpace and Facebook emerged, American teenagers began adopting them as spaces to mark identity and socialize with peers. Teens leveraged these sites for a wide array of everyday social practices gossiping, flirting, joking around, sharing information, and simply hanging out. While social network sites were predominantly used by teens as a peer-based social outlet, the unchartered nature of these sites generated fear among adults. This dissertation documents my 2.5-year ethnographic study of American teens engagement with social network sites and the ways in which their participation supported and complicated three practices self-presentation, peer sociality, and negotiating adult society. My analysis centers on how social network sites can be understood as networked publics which are simultaneously (1) the space constructed through networked 2 technologies and (2) the imagined community that emerges as a result of the intersection of people, technology, and practice. Networked publics support many of the same practices as unmediated publics, but their structural differences often inflect practices in unique ways.
Social Networking Sites such as Facebook.com has become a natural part of the online culture. Facebook is a place where people go to repair their damaged ego and seek social support, it is vitally important to understand that it promoting narcissism which further results in lowering one's self-esteem. The research comes amid increasing evidence that young people are becoming increasingly narcissistic, and obsessed with self-image and shallow friendships. people may feel less pressure to impress their social networks and more pressure to portray themselves in a way that their Facebook friends would recognise and validate. Although,it is also a death reality that ,as being humans we like to be loved, for that we need social approval. That's why every human psyche contain usual portion of narcissism which give motivation for achieving life goals and for stronger self views.
The purpose of this book is to explore the presentation of the self through the use of Facebook as a social media platform. It researches the way Facebook users manage their social media profiles and the kind of self and identity they chose to portray on their virtual world versus the real. It's a case study of Facebook use in personal, professional and academic contexts and it aims to research which parts of themselves users chose to proudly post on their profiles and what they chose to keep private. The dynamics and the power of Facebook as tool of self-expression are explained and how the users present themselves online. This book was written in 2011 when Facebook was the king of the social media.
India, today has the second largest number of Facebook users in the world. Of the 100 million active users in India, 76 per cent of them are young educated people in the age group of 18-34 years. As this young demography spend more time online than each generation before, it is important to explore the gratifications they seek and derive from Facebook. This book is a synthesis of the findings of a research that examines the intersection between technology and psychology. In this scholarly enterprise, the author empirically uncovers the reality of young peoples' use of networked technologies in India. Appropriating Goffman's seminal work on presentation of self, this study particularly focuses on young peoples' online identity in relation to social contextual information on Facebook. Through this lens, the author discusses current issues in online identity management. The application of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and the Life Satisfaction Scale enables the researcher to illuminate why and how social media is important to young people and how psychological well-being predicts the behaviour of Facebook users.
