I chose the Social Media verb share for this project. It has definitely taken on a new meaning in the internet and I decided to make my performative action whispering something into another person’s ear. I chose this as my performative action because I wanted to embrace the communication aspect of sharing something on a website like Facebook versus face-to-face. I came across a lot of interesting thoughts throughout the process of my performative action. For example, how people reacted to me whispering into their ears as opposed to how they would react to me just posting and sharing something on a social media website. I learned that the verb share gives people a sense of inclusion when it comes to real time, but the verb share in social media does not have that same connotation because it is more impersonal.
