Retrospect Idea for A2
Seeing the presentations, I was thinking I would have wanted to explore the idea of social media dictating who you are. So for instance, people who get sponsors and they live their life accordingly to the products they receive, the events that they are invited for.
I remember during the summer there was an event for a concert and if you wanted to get in, you just had to Tweet about it. Also, I know of someone who do get free things from different companies because of the online presence they have.
I would like to see a fictional character be exploited by companies through social media. It would have been nice to measure the success by seeing how many events or products this person could have gotten. What’s even more appealing is the relationship of this character to the physical world. These companies don’t know me but they would expect me to use their products or go to their events in return for exposure.
