Media, Socialization, and Deviancy
Technology provides socialization that influences how we, as a society, view deviancy. In this unit, take the time to view some source of programming through technology. Examples may include television, Twitter, Facebook, new feeds, et cetera. For this discussion, view at least two programs and state:
The source and names of the programs.
Your perception of the social message of the programs, with examples.
Keeping in mind your unit readings on deviancy, how do these programs confirm or negate the larger societal messages about deviant behavior?
In your post, critique your activities and thoughts. Be sure to address the concept of deviancy (whether you think the activities support or dismantle deviancy).
Complete your initial post by Thursday of this unit.

Be sure to address the concept of deviancy in your response, as it relates to the learner’s post, and also discuss how his or her post impacts your future social work practice.
