On this week’s agenda is… “Framing”.
According to ‘Dietram A Scheufele’, a saying that appeared in this weeks lecture was, “The frame suggests what the controversy is about the essence of the issue”.
And within social media, there is always a story.
These days it may be something online, and this story becomes framed (and viewed), an event may occur and then the story becomes framed again and new media is made.
Now, this may make no sense at all, but something that helped myself make sense of it all is the most savage meme format you can think of.
D R U M R O L L……STARTER PACKS!
Julia’s favourite #BCM112 Starter packs.
(creds to all the media makers)
They can be described as ruthless, savagery and hilariously accurate, and these day’s everyone and everything can be made into a starter pack, ladies and gents there is no escaping them!
But in more formal words, starter packs are just examples of making media and using selection and salience to be passed through a perceptual frame, which then allows a meme like starter packs to simply propagate.
