The topic that I am considering using for my Annotated Bibliography is social networking. I plan to research information about the benefits, as well as the negative factors of Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other social networks. When researching details about this topic, I will be searching for information by credible sources that support both sides of this subject. For example, social networking is considered by many people to be a positive outlet for communication, but others feel that it may be taking the place of human interaction. Also, some people enjoy posing as other people on social networking in order to create a new world for themselves. They are able to live through a “new person” and are able to choose a new name, appearance, “likes,” friends, and lifestyle. The drawback to this is the fact that they are lying to themselves, others, and may be capable of hurting someone. I have chosen this topic for several different reasons. Social networking is a common topic that is a current issue in today’s society. Because of this, there will be many available sources on this topic. Another reason that I have chosen this topic, is because I am interested in using social networking as the topic for my upcoming Issue Essay. I do not personally have an opinion on this topic, so I feel that it will not be difficult for me to provide unbiased information on this subject. The best resources for this topic will be journal entries and articles. Magazines, newspapers, news articles, and websites will probably have many things written about this subject. The narrow publish date range that was given for sources for this assignment should not pose a problem because there are many articles that have been written recently, and are still being published. I do not have many questions for the library instructional session this Monday, but I would like to find out how to find specific articles in the library. I only have experience finding journal articles in the ECU music library and online databases. I would also like to find out if there are any online databases for this type of research, since I am only familiar with art or music sources such as Groves and JSTOR.
