Identity Construction Weekly Reflection
I really don’t think there is anything wrong with youth obtaining parts of their identities while online. I think fan fiction communities really keep writing alive in youth today when schools lessen the amount of creative writing assignments. There’s only the matter of youth safety and privacy online but other than that I think this is fine.
On the other hand, this quote made me think: “In a world of constant movement and flow, media images of advertising and commerce seep into our lives and strongly identity development.” This makes youth extra vulnerable to what is promoted to them and it’s up to educators and parents to help the youth stay in the right path and guide their identities in the right direction.
