Bandura conducted a study that investigated social behaviors if they can be acquired through observation and imitation.
Strengths
The experiment method that was used was precise controlled of variables. The variables were controlled are such as gender, time that the children observed this model and the behavior of the model among others.
Strength of this model is that experiments can be replicated of the experiments. Instructions and standardized procedures were used which allows replicability. (Bandura, 1963 has replicated with changes using videos and results were found similar)
Experiments are only means where cause and effect can be established. This gives room to demonstrate if the model had effect on a child to his/her subsequent behaviors since all the variables apart from the independent variables are controlled.

Weaknesses Low ecological validity. Many psychologists have criticized laboratory studies on imitation. Because the model involves the child and the adult model and this is a very limited in social situations. The child has no interaction with the model and this makes it impossible to influence the model. And also the child and the model are strangers.
Another criticism of this study is that demonstrations are measured immediately. Long-term effects cannot be discovered with such single exposure.

The experiment also sounds unethical we don’t know whether the children suffered long-term consequences or not as a result of this study

2. Children behavior were used to demonstrate this model by doing experiment (bobo doll experiment) which was to establish relationship between their behavior and environment and there consequences. Children observe all people around them and try to adopt the behavior in various ways.
Bandura, Ross and Ross (1961), they tested 36 girls and 36 boys aged between 3-6 years old. The pre-test was done…...

...that’s something we need to understand as both marketers and market researchers,” says Sourabh Sharma, social media research expert at SKIM, a Rotterdam, Netherlands-based market research and consulting agency. “Consumers very positively have more options of how to express themselves.” Current and candid brand sentiment exists on Facebook posts, Twitter feeds and blog posts. Companies are becoming more data-driven and brand-obsessed. How can marketing researchers harness this realtime data to gather deeply emotional insights from consumer chatter online and turn it into actionable business strategies? Sharma says researchers must go beyond social media monitoring, which accounts for the volume of conversation about a brand, and become more active listeners. With listening, “you’re not only asked to seek your brand, but perhaps associations with it or associations with your category, to scope out not just what a conversation looks like and where it spikes, but to see whether they’re positive and when they’re positive,” Sharma says. Some researchers approach social media with trepidation, dismissing it as frivolous compared to classical research methods. A recent Forrester report stated that while nearly two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies have Twitter accounts and 58% of them have Facebook pages, “most firms undervalue the data generated in these channels.” Sharma says social media research should be used to complement traditional sources like surveys and focus groups. “It can...

...absence of agreement about its meaning, the term "social" is used in many different senses and regarded as a fuzzy concept, referring among other things to: Attitudes, orientations, or behaviors which take the interests, intentions, or needs of other people into account (in contrast to anti-social behaviour) has played some role in defining the idea or the principle. For instance terms like social realism, social justice, social constructivism, social psychology, social anarchism and social capital imply that there is some social process involved or considered, a process that is not there in regular, "non-social" realism, justice, constructivism, psychology, or capital. The adjective "social" is also used often in political discourse, although its meaning in a context depends heavily on who is using it. In left-wing circles it is often used to imply a liberal characteristic, while in right-wing circles it is generally used to imply a conservative characteristic. It should also be noted that, overall, this adjective is used much more often by those on the political left than by those on the political right. For these reasons, those seeking to avoid association with the left-right political debates often seek to label their work with phrases that do not include the word "social". An example is quasi-empiricism in mathematics which is sometimes labelled social constructivism by those who see it as an unwarranted intrusion of social considerations in mathematical......

...health our behavior comes as a factor. While children as well as adults either get taught about nutrition through school or possibly even due to them already having health problems. Behavior change theories and models, validated within the field of dietetics, offer systematic explanations for nutrition-related behavior change. They are integral to the nutrition care process, guiding nutrition assessment, intervention, and outcome evaluation. (Spahn,2010) Thus meaning our behavior has a big impact on our life which our environment can also effect this. To think though that we would base our health on our environmental influences sounds crazy right? Not so much when you think about all the advertisements not just on television but through the social networking online too! Sometimes our behavior leads us to not so healthy foods or addictions such as smoking which are both bad for your health but through our change in our behavior and motivation can lead us to a better lifestyle. Take criminals what goes on in their brain that makes them steal, shoot people, and beat them? Abnormal behavior is what is considered out of the norm for us. Such things as mental disordered which they have a different way of perceiving what reality is in some of them. While others may be just learning disabilities in that case they take medication to help control their behavior in and out of school.

...neurobiology and experimental psychology in the last decade has produced many results on the biological bases of social interactions. This growth suggests that we can now look to science for some partial answers to the question of limits. Until recently, the social sciences and the biological sciences have mainly developed separate and disconnected accounts of human behavior. In the “nature/nurture controversy,” for example, anthropology has tended to emphasize cultural influences on human nature whereas behavioral biology has tended to emphasize genetic influences. The journalist Matthew Ridley (Nature via Nurture) provides an accessible account of the intellectual history and rhetoric of these two fields. Yet an increasing number of scholars in both areas are now realizing that behavioral biology and anthropology are studying the same human phenomena from different viewpoints. This overlap means there should be an underlying reality that is consistent across the different disciplines regardless of any disagreements in terminology. The behavioral biologist Edward O. Wilson calls this type of interdisciplinary commonality consilience, a term coined earlier by the nineteenth-century philosopher William Whewell from the Latin for “jumping together.” Wilson’s version of consilience, however, is mainly a one-way street. He tends to advocate restructuring the social sciences by breaking social entities down into biological components studied by principles established in the......

...are at least three different social media networks that I have used or still use. MySpace is one of the ones that really got social media networking to where it is now. I used to use MySpace to talk to friends, share pictures, promote my music, and share my blogs. These were the main functions that I used MySpace for. MySpace was one of the first big steps that lead other social media networking where it is. Being able to interact with your friends and family in a virtual world is a big success to being able to so be many places at once. Facebook is another social media networking tool that took the world by surprise. With Facebook you are able to share photos, express what is on your mind with your friends and family, write messages between you and others, and stay connected with people all over the world. Facebook came and conquered most of, if not all, social media networking web sites. The main thing that separated Facebook from any other social media web site is that it was made for college students. Little by little it became so popular that everyone wanted to be a part of this network. Businesses really took advantage of the social networking site for advertising. With so many advertising competitors on the network, it is hard for users not to take advantage of the products advertised. Businesses even have commercials that tell to “like” them on Facebook to ensure the attention of the social media users. The latest installment to the social media networking web sites......
