Online communities that exist around Frank

Frank Ocean has definitely found his

Twitter accounts, he posted quotes,
comments, and pictures that fans would
appreciate and could relate to.
By looking at his social network involvement,
anyone can tell that Frank keeps to himeslf.
In a recent post by the media, Frank deleted
his Instagram and Twitter accounts because
he felt that the photography and comments
were interfering with his production of work.
Frank’s music speaks louder than his words,
for me at least.
His music is very unique and extremely
creative from the lyrics to the underlying

Pictures that his fans post on behalf of him
capture a very calm and collected artist who
has contributed a lot to the music industry
along with culture in general.

Hand out swag. Put up flyers
In my opinion, Frank Ocean’s involvement
online is not as great as other artists but still
seems to be enough for fans based on his
producing and features for other artists.
There are many customized clothing lines
that have Frank Ocean memorabilia, but the
group Odd Future has their own clothing line
which contain clothing and things from the
The Odd Future clothing line is very
successful as many famous artists have been
wearing clothing from them as well as
millions of sales that have been made.
There are only a few Odd Future clothing
stores around the world, but they are
expanding to different countries as they have
been increasing their popularity.
Frank Ocean engages with his audience
consistently by being heavily involved in the
music industry even though he has only
released one studio album in 2012.
Frank’s involvement goes beyond just music
as he posted a letter he wrote stating that his
