#Why am I so Pretty

Social media are computer-mediated tools that allow people to create, share or exchange information, ideas, and pictures/videos in virtual communities and networks. Social media is defined as “a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content. A celebrity is basically who you consider to be a ‘famous person.’ It is through each individual’s profession that allows their social media persona, to define themselves as a celebrity. For example: Kurt Coleman is famous for absoluting nothing but he is trending on twitter and all other social media accounts. He is famous for loving himself, for who he is and not being afraid to express it. There are other celebrities some would say are famous for nothing ie, Kim Kardashian and the whole Kardashian-Jenner family who on average have over 20 million followers on Instagram!! This just shows the power of social media and how internet sensations can become famous. Another example of internet sensations is YouTube stars they are famous for sitting at home filming themselves and getting paid and people are interested in them and want to follow them around and find out their every move as if they were celebrities!! Kurt Coleman became famous from posting his notorious selfies all over social media. He is a perfect example to showcase the power of the media through sharing and posting within the media. Kurt’s empire continues to grow with his up and coming clothing line, YouTube videos and never ending selfies.

  1. Kurt Coleman is so ridiculous but I suppose promoting self love isn’t the worst thing to happen to social media ahaha. Hey, at least he is consistent with his image! It’s crazy to think how many normal people are starting careers and earning so much money after becoming famous on social media. Just goes to show the true power of finding an audience and coordinating your platforms to provide and promote a self brand. Kurt Coleman is a perfect example of this. The only thing I can think of that would add to this post might be a couple of hyperlinks in the text so readers could look further (: Great post!
