Panel Description:

The advent of social media offers a new avenue for communication scholars to examine intrapersonal communication due to this medium’s ability to capture individuals’ internal thoughts composed for a mass audience. This panel offers case studies focused on the convergence of intrapersonal and mass communication from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, including Goffman’s conceptualizations of self-presentation and stigma, Burke’s metonymy, ethnography, and user surveys.
