Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
You’ve read them, and you probably find them annoying. That’s right; we’re talking about cryptic and ambiguous status updates. Read the three statuses below and think of three different scenarios where the original status listed could be interpreted to mean something different.
For example, if the status update was, “Goodbye, cruel world!” it could be a reach out for help, a reference to pop culture (Pink Floyd album or several other songs), or someone being overly dramatic and silly.
What it meant to the original poster depends on their situation and personality, and what it means to the reader varies as well. You can interpret these statuses from the poster’s perspective and/or the audience. Be sure to consider biases and different social groups as you write.
For each of the statuses below, discuss each interpretation of the status. Your paper should be 1-2 pages in length.
Status 1: Are you serious?!
Status 2: Did that really just happen?
Status 3: OMG! I’m so excited!
