For this week’s assignment, you will write a 1.5-2 page essay about Internet sources. Be sure to address all prompts and cite your sources in APA format. This is worth 75 points, so be thorough and give your best effort. No plagiarism, add your references and double check your grammar.
For this assignment, you will be introduced to Internet sources and examine how to use search engines more productively.
Using at least three sources from the Internet, complete a basic investigation to find a relative or friend. You can also use sources like Facebook to find a friend you have not yet ‘friended.’ Other options are sources like Zabasearch (Links to an external site.), Spokeo.com (Links to an external site.), or any of the resources listed in Chapter 4, pages 119-133 of your textbook. Write a 2-3-page paper (300-400 words) summarizing your investigation, beginning with a rationale for choosing the subject of the search. Also describe your methods of using sources, and why you used the particular sources. Include what the sources can provide for the average person and the outcome of your search. If you did find the person, did you contact him or her and verify their identity? If you were unsuccessful, what were the reasons?
