What impact does social media have on social comparison?. Unit 2 Discussion: Keeping Up with the Joneses (COM107)
Reflect on a time from your childhood when direct definitions, identity scripts, or attachment styles left a big impact on your self-identity. How did the experience shape your perception of who you were at the time? Have those same self-perceptions become a major part of how you think about yourself now or have other experiences reshaped your identity to its current state? How does social comparison theory play out in your professional and personal life? Which type of comparison do you find yourself making most often (similarity/difference, upward, downward)? What impact does social media have on social comparison?
