So-sial Networking<br />Abstract<br />Artist Statement<br />Social Networking is new way of communication with people around the world. What I realize with social Networking, especially Facebook is that, the consequences of using it as their privacy are not safer. Besides that, issues regarding relationship with partners and Facebook addiction also occur. So, I have come out with an idea where to show certain activities in Facebook are actually gives you nothing but just time wasting. I wanted to make the audience feel like it is a time wasting after watching my project, so that whenever they were in Facebook, it will occur in their mind which if they were doing the same kind of activities, they saw from my project is actually time wasting as well. Since I want to show the negative part of Facebook, I feel that its not appropriated if I included the elements like good sound effects or cool motion graphics because at the end, the audience is going to enjoy it and they did not get the actual message that I would like to deliver to them.<br />

So-sial Networking<br />Development<br />Problems <br />The problem that I face through out the project is, getting crack for software (VDMX 5) <br />that I used for this project. Besides that, problem such as visual clarity,<br />especially the typopart on video. A part from that, mapping on <br />Projection surface is another problem I need to solved. <br />Future Planning<br />My future planning regarding this project is that, add variety to the<br />contentin different aspect and give more meaningful message to the<br />people. Not only that, I would also like to exhibit this project at places<br />Such as KL Sentral,which crowded with people. Project it at any wall<br />there, for a long time, so that it can attract people from various <br />generation and give some concern regarding social media to them.<br />
