Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Facebook is by far one of the biggest online social network site currently. There are more than a billion users and there are even more Facebook accounts created for every day that passes by. This project is an investigation of how late adolescent individuals use self-presentation on Facebook. Five individuals have been interviewed in order to enlighten and reach a comprehensive conclusion. The information that has been extracted from the candidates has been analyzed carefully and has been compared to each other as well as discussed as objectively as possible. Candidates for this research has been 16-24-year-old individuals with the assumption that this group of individuals are the ones that are relatively active on Facebook, according to Danmarks Statistik. Carolyn Cunningham and Erving Goffmans theoretical model of “presentation of self in everyday life “is the foundation for this project in order to understand human interaction and has been applied to understand interactions between Facebook users. This project concludes that self-presentation strategies are applied and used by candidates of this research but also from a certain perspective that one can force the theoretical models on almost every subject if one is not sceptic of the theories themselves. That being said not every subject use selective self-presentation to promote themselves but rather to express one’s identity.
