Jessica Haywood's Koobecaf Assignment
Jessica Haywood Koobecaf As I observed the Nacirema culture, I have noticed that a lot of different tribes communicate with one another through a program called Koobecaf. Koobecaf is what the Nacirema’s call a social networking website. Every tribe has a different network on this Koobecaf website, and many members of tribes are members of more than one network. While many tribes use things like senohpllec, or just communicate face to face, a majority of them use this Koobecaf instead. To them it seems like something that comes easy, but as I went deeper into my study, I seemed to have discovered a whole new virtual world. When you first go to this Koobecaf website, it tells you some of the things you can do with a Koobecaf account. Some of which include keeping up with friends and family, sharing sotohp and soediv, and reconnectin with old setamssalc. I decided to open my own and see what it was about and it asked for my first and last name and if I wanted to import my liam-e friends. I did not have any, but as soon as I set it up, I already had a few friend requests. As I navigate through their pages, I see that they have things called sutats setadpu. What people type in these varies from person to person. Some people put what they are doing at the moment in there, others put song lyrics, quotes, or just random stuff. As I scroll farther down each individuals page, I see they have little boxes of information about themselves, such as where they are employed, who they are gnitad, and mostly their basic stseretni. Some people use this Koobecaf website as a daily ritual. They get on as soon as they get home from school, work, and even as soon as they wake up. From what I see, they do it out of boredom most of the time. Others do it briefly to keep up with old friends, and some just do it to play around on things called snoitacilppa. They are things you can get on and interact with all of your friends in different ways. Look at their photos, play games with them, and read the notes that they write. All of this comes down to the Model of Culture. Superstructure would include people from the different tribes seton that they write about their lives, and their “about me” boxes. The Social Structure would just be how the tribe people become friends with members of other tribes, or even members of their own tribes. Also how they share the same political or religious views of another. Infrastructure would mostly include how technologically advanced Koobecaf is, and how it connects all of the people from different tribes together. All of this makes up the Koobecaf environment, tribes coming together during stneve, such as parties and concerts. People are brought together by Koobecaf, and are given the chance to get to know each other without communicating face to face. As weird as the Nacirema culture may seem, they have good ways of communication.
