Title:Backstage or Front Stage with YouTube

Subject(s):Goffman

Abstract:This paper explores backstage behavior in videos found by searching for “drinking and puking” on YouTube. A small sample of 10 videos was critiqued using the definition of backstage language behavior found in Goffman’s Presentation of Self in Everyday Life. The question examined is: Is there a blurring of the boundaries between front stage and backstage behavior in videos posted to YouTube? Three possibilities emerge from the research relating to boundary establishment in this mediation of social interaction by technology.
