Christina Oliva  ENGL102 September 7, 2016 Oxford Reference defines social norms as: Common standards within a social group regarding socially acceptable or appropriate  behaviour in particular social situations, the breach of which has social consequences.  The strength of these norms varies from loose expectations to unwritten rules. As members of society people adhere to social norms, act appropriately towards one another, and learn to behave in public in ways that do not break the laws or jeopardize their personal image.  Some criticize these expected behaviors by saying it is forcing people to adhere to a single mold  and not be their true self. Despite having social norms in a society and hoping that others are  innately good people, sometimes that is just a cover for someone who has learned what is  acceptable at the right time and place, but a person’s true inner self will always find a way to  shine through.  There are some who no matter where they are, who they are with or what they are doing  they cannot hide the hate in their hearts or the terrible person they are always wanting the worst  for others. Just the same, there are those who, no matter the struggles and defeats they face, want  the best for their friends and family, love others unconditionally and could never say a bad thing  about another person. The person we are is the one we become when no one is watching, when  we don’t care who may or may not see our actions and how we treat, talk to, and care for others  in the face of anger or adversity. With the vast amount of online social media sites that are so  readily available today, these are often where people’s true colors shine through. By sharing a  controversial article an adding a caption, by commenting on a picture, or by posting a status to  broadcast personal thoughts, each of these things can be done to promote the growth of oneself  and others, or to tear others down and be a bully. Tyler Clemeti was an 18­year­old freshman who committed suicide because of the  torment his roommate caused within him for being gay. While his roommate never outwardly  bullied him, Tyler knew the truth despite being mildly social face to face because of the posts he  would see from his roommate on Twitter about him. After Tyler was recorded while in his dorm  kissing another man then it was posted online for all to mock him, Tyler killed himself.  Christopher Lao cited his own story of interviewers being kind and friendly while taking his  story for the news, yet they turned it around for the sake of headlines and caused him great  distress in the aftermath. On the contrary, the goodness within people shows through too in  actions and words. The Abundant Love Project started in San Diego, CA was based off of a  young adult’s suicide as the grieving mother found ways to heal. She found that drawing on a  stone and writing “You are Loved” on the back then placing in random places for people to find  is not a hard or expensive thing to do, but will make another person’s day or week. There is no  other reason for this to be done than out of the goodness of people’s hearts and it shows that not  all people have innately bad or hidden intentions in life. Unfortunately, not always can a person’s true character show through in what they say  online or how they post something to intentionally hurt another (or to uplift another), but  sometimes it is completely masked and the way they adhere to social norms is the only person  others see. People like a diagnosed sociopath would fit this category. Despite who they are  within themselves, every one of their actions, comments, posts online and outward displays of  themselves is calculated and meticulously chosen. In these cases, the sociopath chooses who they are and what they are seen as so they aren’t what they post online, what they do or what they say  to others because everything is fake.  Unlike a sociopath, the average person can be viewed by the way they treat others and the things they say, not by the expected behaviors they put forth or the social norms they adhere to.  This is who a person really is and those are the actions and behaviors they need to be held  accountable for whether good or bad.
