Teachers can use this as an activity or a set of notes. I use it while covering Common Core Standard 12.C.2 about socialization. Students can use their Sociology textbook to fill in each portion of the chart. Or, the teacher could give this as notes and have students copy down the information from the answer key. This analysis is based on what is in the textbook. The textbook was published before social media existed. As an extension of this assignments, it might be a good idea to have students brainstorm information about the effects of social media on their lives. I would also recommend showing the Frontline documentary "Generation Like" after students have completed the assignment.
