The Growth of Social Networking Sites - The participants and audience for SNSs is growing rapidly. Statistics published become quickly out dated and it is interesting to observe both the international and national trends of Internet usage generally over the years, as well as those specific to the use of Social Networking Sites. Access to technology has become an integral part of education, socialisation and industry related requirements, and accordingly Internet usage is evolving and growing rapidly. A survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statics in 2003 found that in the 12 months prior to April 2003, 95% of Australian children, aged between five and fourteen years had used a computer....   [tags: Social Networking ] 1497 words

Social Mobility in the United States - Does social mobility in our contemporary American society really exist. Is it possible for someone from the deepest depths of poverty to become successful, and ascend into the upper echelons of society. Could the American Dream still be attained in these times where we see the stratification of contemporary American society based on their wealth and social class so vehemently pointed out and perhaps emphasized to a certain degree. Or perhaps, could Charles Sackrey, Geoffrey Schneider, and Janet Knoedler (authors of Introduction to Political Economy) be right about the American Dream being a "particularly deceitful myth?" This is a topic which has been debated over a long period of time betwe...   [tags: social issues, social class, capitalism]

The Evolution of Social Behavior - A defining feature of mankind is the ability to organize, and socialize with the immediate environment, which can either be the natural environment, social groups and organizations. While this feature largely relates to man’s propensity to make the best of most situations, such as living communally to offer greater protection to society members; it also relates to the innate nature of man’s curiosity. Yeats and Yeats (2007) observe that curiosity in man fuels the need to learn, and investigate, and can only be satisfied “....   [tags: Social Evolution]

A Journey to Social Work - I always received great satisfaction from helping others. I remember at a young age, helping my grandmother with chores that she was no longer able to do for herself. As I got older, my grandmother became more dependent on me. I helped her cook, clean, administer medication and made sure she kept her doctor appointments. I now see myself doing these same things for my mother and father as they get older.

Social Work and Child Development - It wasn’t until the time of Sigmund Freud that people looked at the psyches of an individual and what kind of impact that could have on that individual’s life. Before that time, children were seen as extra farm hands and generally as cheap labor. Families did not look at how the children were treated and the possible impact on their development. Later, Erikson and Piaget furthered the study of development and expanded the road that Freud had pioneered. While all consider Freud the father of psychoanalytic thinking, few turn to many of his first theories in reference to development....   [tags: Social Work]

Stigma of Tattoos in Modern Times - Modern Times Stigma: As a tattooed person, I can attest that stigma and prejudice are still alive and well in the new millennium, even in a "liberal outpost" like Massachusetts.

By gaining understanding the social worker can work with the client in moving forward and making meaningful changes (Summers, 2009).

The Social Security is not a Ponzi Scheme - Social Security is not the Ponzi scheme some oppositions may advocate. Social insurance, as envisaged by President Roosevelt, would address the permanent problem of economic security for the elder community by creating a work-related, contributory system in which workers would provide for their own future economic security through taxes they paid while employed. It provided an alternative both to reliance on welfare, and to radical changes within the capitalist system. It can be seen as a moderately conservative, yet activist, response to the challenges of the Depression (SSA, 2014)....   [tags: social security act,ponzi scheme,social insurance]
