Relationships and Health Sociology Discussion

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read the media piece Why Facebook Could Be Good for Your Health (Links to an external site.), read the journal article “Social Relationships and Health,” and watch the video Research Ethics Involving Human Subjects (Links to an external site.). (Links to these articles and video will be uploaded in comments once tutor is selected).

Now  that the literature review has been completed, the text reading this  week covers how important theories can be highlighted that will support  your research topic. For example, particular groups may naturally link  to known theories, such as feminist theory for women’s perspectives, or  queer theory for perspectives from the LGBTQ community. The text also  covers extensive writing tips in regard to scholarly writing which can  help you reflect and develop your own scholarly writing in coursework  that requires research. A third aim of the discussion is to touch on the  integral aspect of preparation for performing research, ensuring you  have considered the ethical concerns and protections for your research  participants or subjects.

In your initial post, address the following:

Describe  a social theory that was discussed in the “Social Relationships and  Health” journal article and indicate how it was used to support the  research.

Choose one of the quantitative research results  presented in the article; describe the evidence presented and indicate  which variables of the experiment were highlighted.

Determine the article’s conclusion in regards to social relationships in society. Based on the accompanying media piece “Why Facebook Could Be Good for Your Health (Links to an external site.),” how could modern social media sites support the research findings in the journal article?
