Social Psychology: What’s Your Online Motivation?
I found this interesting on Harvard’s Complexity and Social Networks Blog: “What is the motivation behind Facebook and other forms of online self-presentation, such as, say, blogging?” Although the post is a bit heady, it is an intriguing question, and I wonder how motivations vary by age group? Generalizing from my own observations, the way 60-year-olds and 16-year-olds self-present online is very different.
