My claim is that ASMR is a growing internet phenomenon, what makes this community so mysterious and why are there many stances towards this community.

Connecting Nuggets

Another source I found is Andersen, J. (2015). Now You’ve Got the Shiveries. Television & New Media. This source is excellent because it deals directly with ASMR and gives excellent insight about certain characteristics about ASMR. This new source differs largely compared to my other source because this source does not discuss anything relating to fame with the usage of the internet where as my other source discusses only that. According to Kay & Goldberg’s point of view, they would find this source fascinating because it talks about using the internet for socializing and finding faux-intimacy. Kay & Goldberg believes that everyone should have accessibility to a personal media and I think this outcome of faux-intimate communities would have made the dreamers happy.
