Today’s class was very interesting due to the questions asked. I always find it really interesting all of the different topics that we discuss. The question that sparked our discussion today was, “when you don’t agree and told to believe it, how do you respond?” This reflects our approach on how do we target to different audiences who aren’t interested in our topic. Through my discussion with Ray, I was able to understand how to maximize the utility/practical use to make different audiences to understand how my topic relates to what people are passionate for.
Thus, it is important to consider the different audience types to try and appeal to. My main audience include passionate sports fans who engage with sports in some aspect of life. My outreach audience would include people who are not die-hard fans, but enjoy to cheer on regional/local sports who cares at a broader scale. Finally, I would consider the excluded group of people who do not identify with a community. Their interest opts out of community identification. This was hard to identify because of my topic choice that includes sports and social media. However, after the discussion in class I was able to understand the importance of community identification that I will definitely include within my project.
