Topic for research group project Spring 2017
The Spiral of Silence theory was used to describe the isolation of minority opinions when faced with majority opinions. The Spiral of Silence explained why the view of any minority is not presented when the majority view dominates the public sphere. The fear of isolation makes many people afraid of exchanging their views face-to-face with others. The main fear comes from identifying the people who hold a minority opinion. However, with the spread of social networks people have moved online to exchange their views, whether they are in a minority or a majority opinion.
In addition to the effects of the Spiral of Silence, there are other obstacles such as self-expression, religion, culture, tradition, and education that may have a negative effect, preventing individual’s voice being made public. Social networks helped to promote all voices while removing offline obstacles.
You are required to use this theory in your group research paper in relations to one issue or more issues related to sports, religion, local social issues, local cultural controversial issues, or local political issue. Use Twitter as a social program for your study.
