How the social networks are encouraging the practice of writing and become associate of good text

Maria Luiza Almeida de Lima studies at a public high school in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte. She is 16 years old and plans to provide the Enem to law school. Although dedicated to studies, she lets the books aside to pay attention to friends. With them, she exchanges more than 100 mobile messages per day. And she also makes daily updates to her Facebook profile. Fan of the teen idol Justin Bieber, his page on the social network is full of posts and comments like this: Justinnnnnnn <3 <3 :)

Malu has a cause that goes beyond herself. She wants to improve the school where she studies (the oldest in town) so that she and her colleagues have the best possible education. Her engagement is inspired by her grandmother, who was a militant policy when young. She speaks proudly of the greatest achievement of the guild: a general renovation of the building that crumbled with the neglect of more than ten years without repairs. Malu went to the town hall meetings, lobbied the Department of Education, entered the classrooms to distribute pamphlets and organized marches. Above all, Malu wrote a lot. She is, since 2013, the primary responsibility for sorority publications on Facebook, which has more than 1,300 followers. It is there that it gives ordinary warnings, announces donation campaigns, criticism and charges the direction of the college and mobilizes students to greater achievements. The language used by Malu in these cases is quite different from the unreadable fru-frus of her personal profile. A text example posted by her during the (troubled) school reform:

"Guys, this week there will be lessons to anyone again! The Directorate reported that these days without class will serve to finish the plaster around the College. Note.: Soon we will post photos of the ride to Pipa-RN, which took place yesterday. \ O /

Good afternoon! "

Here is a review of it on the same post:

"Irresponsibility! We know that work is good for Atheneu. Everyone wants a beautiful and renovated school, but we, students, are who pay for the lack of organization of the management and education department. They should have alternating classes or found another space to have our lessons. Having classes on Saturday is not good enough. Surely we will have 6 classes a day and school holidays too. And what about the ones who have other courses or who work? How is it going? Congratulations! "

"As editor of the guild, I must express myself clearly. In both forms, in the classroom notices and on Facebook. Although I am talking to young people, I write in a little more formal way, without many emoticons or abbreviations. My writing can influence them", she says. "I also want to practice my writing. Since I started posting, my school essays have improved a lot".

Malu is just one of many examples of how the internet, contrary to common sense, can be combined - not the villain - of good writing. Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and SMS, with its short and shallow texts, inconsequential abbreviations, sore absence of an accent or a comma, not ruled out the word youth writing, as some

gurus of the Internet and education believed in mid 2000. In fact, thanks to them, young people have never been so dependent on writing to communicate - and has never been important to write well. Social networks have glamourousing the written word among youth, transforming who is expressed well in prey to others' admiration. An ironic and incisive text on Facebook, as well as a witty tweet, can attract attention and gain followers. It is a means of gaining prestige and improving the status in the group.
