For my Culture Module Project, I went with the Selfie Culture Module. The Suggested Task I decided to complete from the Selfie Module was the task titled “Branding and Celebrity.”
The most important work I did for my culture module was take a closer look at the Instagram brand celebrities have created for themselves in comparison to what regular people use their Instagram for. I found it interesting that a lot of effort goes into creating a persona or brand that appears to be effortless. This topic matters because people assume that what’s posted on social media is what is really happening, when in reality, there is a TON that is going on behind the scenes. My visual aid is my selfie compared to a selfie that Kylie Jenner took. Technically, she’s copying me because I posted this last year and she posted this a few weeks ago.
