  1. 1. Audience ofIs the Social Media Landscape Hegemonic or Democratic? Kaya Sumbland
  2. 2. Documentary & Ancillary
  3. 3. Whole Audience TARGET AUDIENCE: • 16 – 24 year olds • Females • Working Class • British • Interests in Internet/technology SECONDARY AUDIENCE: • 30 year olds • Males & Females • Middle Class • Worldwide – cross cultures • Interests in society, modernity, technology
  4. 4. Target AudienceIts very difficult to distinguish one gender from our documentary because its so unisex.Though females will be more attracted to our documentary because of our pink themecolour, and also the majority of social networking is more suited to females than males – e.gtumblrThis would be working class because we will focus much more on their morals, norms,values and culture throughout. Also the videos from YouTube will be viral video from theirclass rather than any other.Our ethnicity is British. Our documentary is set in Britain – includes any ethnicalbackground. It doesnt lean to any colour or race specifically. It directs at the whole of aninternet culture.There is no target audience in sexuality – it does not target anyone in specific in this group.Though I feel hegemonic males would be less inclined to watch a documentary on socialmedia.There is no professional role in our target audience.Our T.G would most likely attend college or be at university – in social surroundingsThey would certainly have an interest in technology, the elite, the internet, funny videos ormeme images
  5. 5. Secondary AudienceThis is 30 year olds because they’ll take a much more intellectual debate and interest on ourtopic. They’ll wish to lean on the hegemony – also it’s the 2nd biggest age group on socialmediaThis is then unisex because its very hard to distinguish a gender. I believe due to the debatewithin the topic both genders of this age group will watch itThis then would be the middle class as they would be professionals. Working class 30 yearolds would probably not have an interest in the debate of hegemony and democracy in thetopic – this is generally speakingWorld wide and cross cultures because again of the debate within it. They would beattracted by the elites power within social media – and possibly want to watch it in concernof their children using social mediaAgain there is no target audience in sexuality – it does not target anyone in specific in thisgroup.Though I feel hegemonic males would be less inclined to watch a documentary on socialmedia.They would be professionals from possibly any area.Their interests would be society, modernity, technology, social media.
  6. 6. If we look at this chart from it shows females are defiantly more interested in social media – however, I do believe we target both genders equally in our secondary audience. This graph however, does support our choice of females in target audience
