Representation Of Social Groups Final VersionPresentation Transcript
John Gaine, 12 Mullen How Does My Media Product represent my particular social groups?
John Gaine, 12 Mullen My Target Audience My chosen target audience for my publication is 16-21 year-olds, or older teens to young adults. I have chosen this target audience because I feel that the rock/pop genre of my magazine appeals to this audience because of their different tastes and demographics. About half of all teens favour rock music while the other half may favour pop so I feel this factor balances them out. The young adults come into this by providing the higher side of the equation; having developed tastes and being easier to recognise the demographics within my publication.
John Gaine, 12 Mullen My Demographics The demographic that I am mainly targeting is Surveillance. I will be utilising this demographic by mainly including features on bands and a band interview that will let readers know more about the band and what their likes and interests are. Another important demographic is Recreation because the magazine will give people something to do and potentially look forward to when reading the magazine, and it will also keep people occupied.
John Gaine, 12 Mullen My Photography My photography relates to my target audience in a few ways. I have used the picture below as an example. The way Ben is sitting gives off an air of seriousness, like he is focusing on an objective in his mind. This relates to my target audience because older teens tend to think a lot before doing things, so this picture gives that kind of thought. He also has a kind of solemn, steady attitude, with a hint of aggressiveness, which relates to my target audience because of the behaviour cycle of teens and young adults. This also fits in with the genre of my magazine.
