Social Interaction in the Online World

Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers. If you have not done so lately, please review the Rules of Discussion
For your follow up post…review the responses provided by your peers. Engage in conversation, or even civil debate, as you discuss their insights and viewpoints. You may ask questions for clarification (if you are confused by their initial post) or pose questions that advance the conversation. You might even find a topic that leads you to further research in the area!
View your discussion rubric.
Online interaction is becoming a larger part of total social interactions.  In this discussion forum address the following questions:

  • Has the lack of nonverbal communication changed the way we act in person?
  • What features have been added to online interaction that help people get a glimpse of our nonverbal reactions or things that cannot be shared when interacting online?
