Question 28 : 1. This visual turn in social media has merely accentuated this announcing instinct of ours, enabling us with easy-to-create, easy-to-share, easy-to-store and easy-to-consume platforms, gadgets and apps.
2. There is absolutely nothing new about us framing the vision of who we are or what we want, visually or otherwise, in our Facebook page, for example.
3. Turning the pages of most family albums, which belong to a period well before the digital dissemination of self-created and self-curated moments and images, would reconfirm the basic instinct of documenting our presence in a particular space, on a significant occasion, with others who matter.
4. We are empowered to book our faces and act as celebrities within the confinement of our respective friend lists, and communicate our activities, companionship and locations with minimal clicks and touches.
5. What is unprecedented is not the desire to put out news feeds related to the self, but the ease with which this broadcast operation can now be executed, often provoking (un)anticipated responses from beyond one's immediate location.
3 is the best opening sentence and it leads on to 2, which mentions Facebook as an example for our instinct to document our presence. 2 talks of framing the vision of ourselves, visually or otherwise. 1 carries forward this, talking of the visual turn in social media. 4 explains how Facebook has accentuated our announcing instinct; so, 4 follows 1. Sentence 5 is a good concluding sentence.
32145 is the correct answer.
