First Blog Post

Hi everyone!

My name is Brianna Fendrich and I am a freshman from Atlanta, GA, so I do not live that far from UGA. I have also lived in Houston, Texas, Vail, Colorado, and Seattle, Washington, but I definitely think that Atlanta is my favorite place that I have lived so far. I am planning on majoring in Business, but I am not sure what part of Business yet. Whether it is Snapchat, Instagram, or E-mail, I am always using some sort of media in order to communicate and connect with other people. Since media plays such a huge role in my life, I was really drawn to the FYOS and am excited for this class!


I am not sure I am doing this right, but here is my tetrad:




Enhances: Texting allows for quick communication between people. You can send a quick note to a friend or have a full-on conversation with someone through texting. Also texting allows big groups to be able to communicate with each other.


Obsolesces: People talk to people on the phone or in person less because texting is much quicker and can be done while multitasking.


Retrieves: Texting allows people to talk to people who may be far away, and it is an easy way to stay in touch with friends and family.


Reverses Into: People not talking to others in person because texting is much more convenient. People can also become addicted to texting since it is so easy to do and can become over-absorbed in their phones.
