Now I will display all theinformation shown on the firstmedium that I checked to findmore information about Alyshen
Facebook was the first medium that I decided to try to find Alyshen and I was amazed that on Facebook he had very few likes. Likes can determine a lot about a business. So I assumed that he did not have much luck with his music. After looking on his Facebook wall a bit more I saw that he had a very nice range of pictures on there. The majority where head shots but they did include some full body/long shots and mid shots.
This is a print screen of the information on his page. As you can see the Biography I have already included previously. The most shocking part of this for me was the amount of websites he had attacked him self to. There were 8 websites to check out. Also on this information we can see that he is a member of a record label – the Melodic Revolution Records, we can see his genre’s – Pop R&B Soul etc, and his influences in more detail.
The next website I check out that he had was the more popular social media website for band’s and artists – MySpace. Again on here we can see that there are many more pictures but these ones were very different from the ones on Facebook. Facebook has a different target audience compared to MySpace. He is trying to appeal to fans via Facebook and record labels via MySpace.
MySpace provided me with the style of the artists. MySpace cont.
