Need help with my English question – I’m studying for my class.
The Generation Like documentary delves into the world of social media in an attempt to understand and explain both the consumers and producers of this content (often the same people). In this coverage, they present a number of “stars” made possible only through social media (for example, Tyler Oakley and Steven Fernandez, aka Baby Scumbag). Do a little research on one of the social media celebrities mentioned in the film. Find out where this person is now and what they have accomplished. Are they still “living the dream?”
Then write a response of 150-400 words in which you discuss the pressures of social media and how it is changing our attitudes toward each other. How have these media shaped the way in which we share information about ourselves, our lives, etc.? Do you see these media as presenting opportunities? Or are they exploiting (or allowing others to exploit) users and content generators?
