Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The purpose of this project is to examine in which degree Facebook satisfy the need of acknowledgement, and how acknowledgement on Facebook is experienced compared to the acknowledgement in the physical world. We have used Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to understand which need Facebook satisfy. As our main theory we have chosen Axel Honneth’s theory of acknowledgement, as we want to clarify what need of acknowledgement Facebook satisfy. We have used the quantitative method, in form of a questionnaire survey. We have chosen this method as we want to get a representative segment of young Facebook users. After interpretations and the considerations, we have done, we have come to the conclusion that Facebook can be a way to satisfy the individual need of acknowledgement in a solidarity. Furthermore, the study show us that acknowledgment in the physical world is more valuable. We assume this is because they who acknowledge in the physical world know both the self in the virtual world and the self in the physical world.
