Social Interaction TAQ 4

Post by RachMurg »

I am really struggling with TAQ 4? Evaluate the major theories associated with the maintainece of friendships including balance, equality and social exchange?

I have been searching for the equality theory for three days and i cannot find one single thing. I am getting very frustrated and just want to give up.

:( :( :(

I would recommend researching this information via Google Scholar and making more refined general Google searches. Plus I would recommend have a tutorial with your tutor.

Balance theory - look at Heider (1946) and Newcomb (1953)

Social Exchange theory - look at Homans (1974) and Blau (1964)

This should get you started. :wave:
