ENGL120 Cuyamaca College Social Media and Revolution Discussion

Another way to make sure we understand a text is to spend some time talking about it. Please respond the the questions below. There aren’t really wrong answers here. I am looking to see that you read the text, worked to understand it and thought about the main points and ideas.

  1. In his essay, Gladwell tells us about two concepts, strong ties and weak ties, and he contrasts them. What are strong ties and weak ties, and how do they differ? Use one of Gladwell’s examples to explain this distinction in your own words.
  2. Pay attention to the ways Gladwell’s use of those terms (strong/weak ties) helps him build his own analysis of the relationship between social media and revolution. What connections does he establish between social media and the idea of revolution?
  3. Gladwell claims that networks are very different from hierarchies. Why does Gladwell think this difference matters when it comes to social media  and social change? What do you think about the difference?
  4. How does Stone respond to Gladwell? Point out specific points of comparison/discussion?
  5. Overall, whose argument do you agree with more (Gladwell or Stone), and why?


To receive the full credit, you must submit initial response on time and respond to two of your classmates on time. Please respond in full sentences and be as detailed as possible. Your initial post should be around 300 words while your responses should be between 150-200 words and go beyond “I agree/disagree.”

You don’t even have to worry about replying to the other students I will complete that part.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
