  1. 1. For performance Media initiatives the opportunities are endless. Using places like Ikea gives us resources to create sets without needing a lot of money. It also is an interesting way to test if social media followers can see if they’re being tricked (like this video).

    2. Pretending to be somewhere you’re not adds more deceit to social media.

  2. 1- I think , with the several media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Linked-Inn, WhatsApp, YouTube etc., information that is important can be targeted to a specific groups of people. With the performance media initiative, an online platform like Facebook that has lots of subscribers can be used to communicate useful information about anything. By using a platform page that has a lot of likes from people, the message can be targeted groups of people with an aim of passing crucial information to them. This can enhance media and information coverage especially with the platforms that have a lot of subscribers and likes.

    2- I think, the media life can be used in a malicious manner in several ways. Given that a lot of people do subscribe to various media platforms, various people misuse these platforms in an ill-manner to benefit themselves only. First, the online platforms can be used to solicit for funds. By coming up with a false way of seeking sympathy, most of the known people or celebrities can be trusted into receiving certain favors from the online subscribers. Secondly, the online platforms expose falsified lives by various people. Most people do not want to look like they are suffering, but rather seem to be well-off and create some form of mindset about them to various people.

  3. This can be applied to a performance media initiative because the video demonstrates how broad the online world is. It also demonstrates how people have become so dependent on social media, I think it could be a great way to get others to face reality.

    This can be used maliciously because it is deceiving. Influencers can provide false information and create conflict within society.
