Facebook "Before" Assessment

Write a short paragraph of about 200 words that describes the kinds of social networking pages you maintain and the rhetorical appeals that you make in your profile material.

Make sure to include the kinds of audiences that you think might be reading your pages (i.e. specify your main groups of Facebook/MySpace "friends," such as "people from my high school band" or "cousins in Texas"). How are groups different? Who reads you most often? What do you put up on the Internet specifically to interest particular readers?

If you include a screenshot of your profile page, please blur out or remove friend's names.
