Read the following two articles:

James Franco, “The Meaning of the Selfie (Links to an external site.).”

Taylor Swift, “For Taylor Swift, the Future of Music is a Love Story.” (Links to an external site.)

  1. Choose an Instagram user with more than 10,000 followers. You can use SearchMyBio (Links to an external site.) to find Instagram accounts by keyword, followers, and hashtags. This should not be a “celebrity” in the traditional sense (use your best judgment). Ideally, you’re looking for a “regular person” who posts pictures of themselves, their lives, and so forth.
    • Describe the account. What types of pictures does the person post? (Selfies, cars, landscapes, throwbacks, animals, food, etc.)
    • What types of comments does he/she get?
    • How does he or she relate to his/her users?
  2. Now choose a “traditional” celebrity account (musician, actor, athlete, model, personality, etc.) A traditional celebrity would be someone who was a celebrity PRIOR to any Instagram notoriety, such as Beyoncé or Miley Cyrus.
    • What types of pictures does the person post? (Selfies, cars, landscapes, throwbacks, animals, food, etc.)
    • What types of comments does he/she get?
    • How does he or she relate to his/her users?
  3. Compare and contrast these accounts.
    • Does either account use the strategies described in the Swift/Franco essays?
    • Why do you think the “ordinary person” has so many followers?
    • How has Instagram changed “celebrity”?
    • How do James Franco and Taylor Swift reflect on their own selfies, and how is that different from your reaction to your celebrity selfie?
