Quan-Haase, Technology & Society: Social Networks, Power, and Inequality 3e
Anabel Quan-Haase. Technology-whether crude tools in the Stone Age or smart phones in the twenty-first century-has always found its way into our everyday lives, as we work and play. But how does that technology influence and change our society? In Technology and Society, a new text in the Themes in Canadian Sociology series, author Anabel Quan-Haase examines those places in which technology and society intersect, connecting the reality of our technological age to issues of social networks, work, and inequality. The text also places an emphasis on experiential learning, serving as a bridge between abstract, theoretical thinking about technology and real-life events and experiences: issues and examples plucked from readers' daily realities clearly illustrate the history and concepts that form the foundational chapters of the book. The result is an action-oriented volume, one that initiates curiosity and sparks a desire to know more about technology and society: what the tools we use are, where they come from, and how they are changing our perceptions of ourselves and the relationships we form with others. She is also the director of the Sociodigital Lab, which explores how information and communication technologies lead to social change.

DOI: Users have adopted a wide range of digital technologies into their communication repertoire. It remains unclear why they adopt multiple forms of communication instead of substituting one medium for another. It also raises the question: What type of need does each of these media fulfill? In the present article, the authors conduct comparative work that examines the gratifications obtained from Facebook with those from instant messaging.
Uses and Gratifications of Social Media: A Comparison of Facebook and Instant Messaging
Mutual shaping suggests that society and technology are not mutually exclusive to one another and, instead, influence and shape each other. The term mutual shaping was developed through Science and Technology Studies STS in an attempt to explain the detailed process of technological design. Technological determinism TD , coined by Thorstein Veblen , suggests that technology is the primary catalyst for change in society. Following this theory, the development and implementation of technology is beyond the control of society as it is pervasive in all elements of our lives. Once a technology has been created its influence on society is an inevitable, predetermined path.
