Pick a company that uses social media as a marketing and branding tool. Review at least three social media accounts your company of choice uses and assess the following: In your opinion, what kind of image is the company trying to create using their social media accounts? Please use specific examples (tweets, Facebook posts, etc.) How does this company use social media as a branding tool? How are they conveying what they are and do through social media?

Media Advertisement Examples Assignment–Specific to our focus on gender in the media, find two media advertisements, this assignment should be completed after viewing the Jean Kilbourne film. Advertisement #1 should be an example that reinforces Kilbourne’s (Killing Us Softly 4 video) assertions about problematic gender representations. Advertisement #2 should be an example of a more progressive/complex/thoughtful gendered representation(s). Write up a paragraph under each advertisement describing the advertisement (give context/company-product information/etc) as well as what makes it problematic (Ad #1) or progressive (Ad #2). In other words, draw from Kilbourne’s film by identifying one ad that coincides with her analysis in regard to problematic/damaging advertisements and one ad that is a more promising/thoughtful/progessive advertisement and thus provides a more careful treatment of gender dynamics. Drawing from Print Advertising Media or Online Advertising Media is best so that you can paste/scan the ads into a Word file accompanied by your paragraph descriptions.
In your essay you will have to address all of the following questions:What population demographics were the advertisers trying to reach? Consider the magazine type and the articles located around the advertisement. What techniques were being used to encourage consumers to purchase the advertised product? Consider typeface, color, product placement, slogans and other features. How effective are these techniques? How does the product advertised fit into each of the 5 ideas discussed by Neil Postman in Chapter 1?

. Preparation requires having done the readings, thought about it carefully, and written down your thoughts. To that end, you are asked to produce talking points and post them to Compass for each set of weekly readings (300 words maximum). I want to see what youre thinking. You should stake out arguments or raise issues that you believe arise from your engagement with the assigned readings. This means you should be integrating ideas from most, if not all, of the readings. The goal is NOT to provide a synopsis or even an evaluation of the readings. Rather, you should communicate your own ideas and arguments that were prompted by the readings. If you dont have your own ideas or arguments, try harder. When youre making an argument, heres something to keep in mind: Brockriede states that the argument implies five characteristics: (1) an inferential leap from existing beliefs to the adoption of a new belief or reinforcement of an old one; (2) a perceived rationale to justify that leap; (3) a choice among two or more competing claims; (4) regulation of uncertainty in relation to the selected claimsince someone has made an inferential leap, certainty can be neither zero nor total; and (5) a willingness to risk a confrontation of that claim with ones peers. At the end of your talking points, list (at least) three discussion questions that you like to share with the class. Those questions will be selectively used in the class by the instructor or the assigned discussants. Grade Criteria for Talking Points Assignments I will grade these assignments using a 1 to 3 scale basis. Heres a brief qualitative description of what these scores represent to me: 3: Exceptional A thorough knowledge of the materials: An excellent response written in a clear and concise way, and few, if any errors of fact or writing, and well-written essay with multiple examples. 3 2: Satisfactory Some care and expression of knowledge: A clear, understandable written style; perhaps a few errors of fact or writing. The discussion needs more clarity, more development, and/or examples. The essay is missing some of the subtleties of the argument. 1: Unsatisfactory A substandard adequate completion of the assignment; superficial response with few examples; discussion or argument is unsubstantiated; sources are poorly cited; many errors of fact; inadequate writing and grammar.
