birth. I disagree, gender is social. We learn how to act like a man or a woman as we grow up. A key concept speaks about an important idea that a number of different people, normally experts, might agree on. Not everyone will agree on a particular concept, though, and different people may suggest different understandings of a key concept. 2. How Do You Operationalise

Operationalize Social Media (p.12-14) Example: Lets Define and Operationalize Social Media (p.12-14) How do the researchers of the Why We Post Project define social media? They define social media as a place within which people socialize and as

the contents people posted on social media platforms. How is their definition different from the definition of previous studies? The researchers do not define social media as platforms for people to communicate with each other. Why do they define social media in ways different f rom other researchers?

If social media is defined as platforms, then a comparative study of social is not possible. There are no regional variations in how media social media platforms work. However, what people post on social media does have regional variations. They define social media in different ways to suit the needs of their research.
