Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent other-generated and system-generated cues on social network sites (SNS) influence the popularity and attractiveness of adolescents. In a 2 (friends’ physical attractiveness: attractive, unattractive) x2 (friends’ wall postings: positive, negative) x3 (number of friends: low, average, high) factorial experiment, 497 high school students between 12 and 15 years of age were randomly assigned to one of the twelve experimental conditions. Results revealed that the profile owner of a SNS was perceived as being more attractive when the profile includes attractive friends and positive wall postings. The profile owners’ number of friends did not affect the perceived attractiveness of the profile-owner, only the perceived extraversion.

Abstract: A number of colleges and universities have implemented programs to support first-generation postsecondary students (FGPSs). One of the ideas behinds these programs is that if FGPSs can complete their degrees, then they will be more competitive with people from more advantaged backgrounds on the labor market. In this paper I use GSS data to analyze whether FGPSs earn less than non-FGPSs once they have finished their education. I test three explanations for an income gap: (1) differences in backgrounds, (2) differences in rates of degree completion, and (3) differences in rates of returns to higher education. I also analyze whether an income gap between FGPSs and non-FGPSs has changed over time and changes over the life-course. I find an initial income gap of 12 percent between FGPSs and non-FGPSs. The gap falls to about 6 percent after adjusting for background differences and the gap drops to 0 once different rates of degree completion are considered. I find no evidence of differences in rates of returns to higher education, changes over time, or changes over the life-course. These results suggest that programs to support FGPSs may be especially beneficial. They also highlight patterns of stratification among people who continue their education beyond high school that have been overlooked in the more general status attainment research.

Abstract: Much has been written about the baby-boom generation in the United States and elsewhere. Although the dates of this generation vary depending on country, the basic definition remains the same: those born during a period of rapidly increasing birth rates immediately following the end of World War II. Beyond their numbers, much, and yet little, is known about this generation. While research efforts have focused on a myriad of topics relevant to this generation such as their economic well-being, family composition and subsequent relationships, less is known regarding how they are viewed by the broader media community.
Utilizing the international newspaper section of Lexis-Nexis, this research addresses how baby boomers are presented in the print media. In particular this research explores how the print media in a number of countries with English newspapers frame articles regarding the baby boom generation. Findings indicate a range of differences between countries in their coverage of this generation and the categories used in their presentation. More specifically, the data suggest that the baby boom generation is framed more as a socially created social problem rather than as an engaged segment of society. The categories utilized by the print media to construct this image are addressed as are the implications for this generation.

Abstract: The past two years brought a remarkable crop of novels portraying Jewish life in the Soviet Union through the lenses of family. Drawing on their own family memories, authors such as Boris Fishman (A Replacement Life, 2014) and Yelena Akhtiorskaya (Panic in a Suitcase, 2014) in English, Katja Petrowskaja (Vielleicht Esther, 2014) in German, and Liudmila Ulitskaia (Lestnitsa Yakova, 2015) in Russian, recreate in their fictional narratives imaginary intergenerational “common places” that have been lost or broken up by the turbulent events following the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Abstract: YouTube now holds the attention of more 18 to 34 year olds than any major cable network. As a result, advertisers capitalize on the popularity of YouTube content creators to broadcast branded information through the creator’s large audiences. A sample of 144 videos, representing 44 creators, were examined. From this dataset, themes were generated that pointing to ways in which credibility and truthfulness are depicted in sponsored and non-sponsored content across user- and professionally-generated content.
