Descrizione

QuickRead presents a summary of Because Internet by Gretchen McCulloch:

Learn how the internet has changed the way we communicate and what our online interactions reveal about who we are.

Have you ever wondered how a simple punctuation mark in a text message can mean anger or passive aggression? Or how a simple "lol" can make even the rudest messages nice? Well, thanks to Gretchen McCulloch, we can now get an in-depth explanation of how the internet has changed the way we communicate online. In the past, published writing was forced to go through a series of proofreads and edits; however, nowadays our social media updates, blog posts, and even articles can be written by anyone who wishes to share information with the world. The internet has led to an increase in informal writing which is constantly changing and evolving as quickly as language itself. So if you've ever found yourself wondering how to punctuate a text or where a meme came from, McCulloch answers these questions and more throughout her book, Because Internet.

Introduction

Language is the world’s most ongoing project and the internet is making our language change faster than ever before. With numerous apps, forums, and social media platforms, internet conversations are structured accordingly to keep up with the times and constant changes. Because of these changes, Gretchen McCulloch sought to discover why internet language has become what it is today. According to McCulloch, your age and how you were introduced to the internet can determine how you communicate online. For instance, some prefer to use LOL over lol while some generations can have entire conversations using only emojis. We are writing informally more than ever which means the basic rules of grammar and syntax are radically different. Throughout this book, you’ll learn how internet culture has changed our language and how emojis and memes have allowed us to perfect our online communication with one another.

Informal Writing

When you think about writing, what do you think of? Likely your mind might go to books, newspapers, articles, magazines, and probably even those school essays you wrote that tried to emulate them. As a whole, we learn how to write through such mediums, and we are taught to fear the red ink or make any spelling and grammatical mistakes. Writing involves following a set of rules, but times have certainly changed. With the rise of the internet and mobile devices, we have seen an explosion of writing by normal people.
