Additions:
Context in Facebook
Context: "the relevant and significant social conditions, needs, or symbols, which serve as guidelines for interpreting messages". (54)
The keywords here are //relevant// and //significant//. Determining what's relevant and significant takes some close consideration.
Task
Specific circumstances (p. 54-5)
- describe the time, place, venue of delivery
- and / or events, issues, previous messages
- describe the broader norms, values, beliefs, expectations of the rhetors and audience members
- describe values of the group
Similar circumstances and messages
- How do they resemble messages from other forums?
- How does Facebook borrow from and build on other forums, genres, and other kinds of communication?
Rhetor and audience
- Understanding the rhetor is facilitated on Fbook: f'book gives you some evidence of who's speaking: political leanings, auto biographical info, values, etc
- describe the limited audience: limited audience can respond
- describe the relationship between rhetor/audience, cast as roles
- entertainer to entertained, student to teacher, etc. But what are they on Facebook?
- note: on Facebook, the relationship can flip
- describe states of mind of rhetor/audience to understand the relationship - as those states appear in the exchange itself
- Describe any unwritten rules Facebook messages follow.
- Describe any stated and unstated values that seem important to each of the parties.
Additional notes
Describe who creates Facebook profiles and to whom they are addressed. The rhetor is not masked but is the agent presented on the profile page. The audience is masked, until they appear on The Wall . You're looking especially at similarites and differences in rhetors and audiences in Facebook rather than print, email, face to face exchange, and so on.
Describe the relationship between rhetor and audience, those agreements (implicit) between rhetor and audience of their roles. Again, you're ooking especially at similarites and differences in the relations in Facebook rather than print, email, face to face exchange, and so on. Describe how rhetor and audience swap roles.
Look to the states of mind of rhetor and audience, and to the circumstances in which a reader encounters the message. keep to what you can infer from the message and from your balcony understanding of how people encounter these messages
