Facebook: A Place for the Social

Pink or Blue.jpg
 

Facebook is currently undergoing an interesting transition. It is transitioning demographically from young to middle-aged users in part because the users who initially joined Facebook in their teens are aging and in part because of the expansion of Facebook beyond the university population. With this shifting demographic, Facebook's purpose is similarly in motion evolving from the casual social media site which hosts conversations between college students towards an easy to use communication platform utilized for a variety of purposes. While many users have personal opinions as to what is appropriate to post on Facebook, besides the monitoring of explicit content, the site is a merger of many kinds of statuses and posts. This exhibit is intended to feature the different kinds of everyday writing that appear on the social media site, Facebook.
