4. Language in social media

In this task you will reflect on how you use language in different situations and for different purposes.

  1. Using less than 50 words, describe how you use language in social media. Remember that emoticons, memes, pictures, videos, and voice messages are also ways of using language.
  2. Describe briefly how your language use may vary depending on whether you are speaking with your friends or your family. You can start by thinking about whether you have noticed any differences in your use of emoticons or more casual language depending on your audience.
