Media and Messages Weekly Report #2

So for my weekly Progress Report for the week of 1/23/2017 to 1/27/2017.

So for our progress report, we had to pick our topics from a hat and I had the topic of “education”.

But then that was scrapped out and we are working with partners by picking one of the topics between us. So I was partnered with Tori and we’re both doing the topic of ” Internet security and privacy”.

Our first assignment is going to be about who is our demographic to this topic. We can choose many things from Internet Security and Privacy about who our audience is by demographic and psychographic stats.

For this topic, we can choose between who uses Internet which would be everyone in the general population. We could choose a smaller demographic based on age, gender, and where they live. For psychographics, we would have to ask why our audience would use the Internet (if to satisfy their communication between friends or to raise awareness to their personal life) .

So for example, the audience who would be not as concerned about privacy and security would be teenagers (13-18 years old) both male and female, and are in high school.

They go on social media like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and ect. so much that they are one of the highest consumers of being active on social media than anyone else in the demographic.

They would post many things about their personal lives without thinking of where it’s being posted to who might read it.

They would need to know more about protecting their information from a large audience who would love to steal their identity.

We would have to make a website or a social media account about how it’s very important for those teenagers to be more aware of what they’re posting and where they’re giving away their information to so-calledĀ “secure sites” on the net.

So that’s the basic topic and what we’re going to turn soon.

Media And Messages Weekly Report #1

New Media and Messages is a class where we learn about how to create content for the audience and how we can attract our audience to share, like, buy, or bring others to our website.

This is a class that I’m really interested in. I’ll get to understand and know what I should do in order to attract a randomĀ person out in a sea of millions of users to my content. Or how I should formulate my message to the people so they can understand me as a person and what I need to get across to them.

I get to have a partner to work with on projects like how to create a website or social media account about an issue or topic we get to choose and based on what we choose, we’re going to have to target an audience that might be interested in it.

It’s going to a lot of work in figuring out how to understand an audience and how to target them specifically. I’m going to have to work on targeting an audience based on many different factors.

For example, how would I know how to attract people to my store if I’m selling food? What kinds of food would be good for families coming in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? How will I attract audiences on social media sites if I am selling food?

Is it better to go on Pinterest than another social media website like Instagram? How would I market to an audience based on those websites?

There are many things I’m going to have to work on and it’ll be tons of work to get into the mind of a person who just wants a specific thing that you might be able to sell or create just for him or her.

I’ll work hard and try my best in this class! Wish me luck!
