In progress of my website, it is starting to come together slowly but nicely.
I have added media content such as my music video and video art. I have also adjusted colors, rollovers, hyperlinks and more.
It took a while to understand this software, but now I am growing confident on using this software, I will be spending as much free time as I can to build this site/portfolio.
Deviant art is such a thoughtful and useful website, It’s targeted audiences is, well artists, but artists can benefit a lot from this site.
It is used to upload your artwork, not just one category but a wide range of art, from Paintings, Sketching, creative writings, Photography and even your own art videos.
I think artists can turn to this website then any other social media (Facebook, twitter) because everyone who uses this website and sees your work can be open minded and perceive it for what it is, as Facebook is more global and not as much will understand your work.
Deviant art allows artists to explore and communicate to artists around the world, they can leave feedback and follow artists.
By searching Deviant Art, you may get offers in the future, asking to buy paint brushes or art materials, possibly asking you to follow them on Facebook.
Why YouTube is so popular?
Same as Facebook, The range of audiences is so large, everyone can relate to it. Also I think more of the population, especially these days are drawn more to watching video then anything else
What purposes does YouTube have?
YouTube is used for everything not only moving image but pictures, texts and even music. It is used for educational purposes, (Tutorials, lessons and research,) entertainment, (Music and film.) also YouTube can be used as a vlog and watch things live.
Many celebrities today started by uploading their videos to YouTube.
Gabrielle Aplin who is now a famous british musician, sold herself by uploading her own songs and covers to her YouTube Channel.
Esmee Denters build her career by uploading low-tech karaoke videos
Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg Also known as Pewdiepie is now one of the most famous people on Youtube, just by sharing his gaming experiences and other vids. PewDiePie earned $7.4m 2014 due to his large amount of views and subscribers.
All these people have got where they are now due to turning to this website to sell themselves.
Contextual Awareness in YouTube
Like most websites, they use ads as a way of trying to persuade you to buy their products. Most of these ads are linked by your previous searches. If you like a game page on Facebook or watch videos of games on YouTube, YouTube will record this and advertise related videos. They do this by asking you to view or subscribe related videos.
Why Facebook is so popular?
To me I think the reason Facebook is so popular is not only because of how many layers it has. (Video streams, messenger call, ads, recommendations due to cookies.) but because it’s a social media and as human being, we are social creatures and are all drawn to it.
Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook designer) knew this website would become dependent on everybody, he knew his target audiences would be so big and most of the population would use it. Families use it to check up on each other, friends use it to plan and generally socialize on it and some people use it to search for their old lost friends.
What,When and where you use a device to search the web, everything is recorded and used for future purposes, with Facebook, they can see what you shop online and recommend an item for you, with friends that are added onto your account, Facebook knows this and uses it to help you find other friends that you may know, this is all called contextual Awareness.
Not only is Facebook used as a social media but it is also used as a way of supporting something, such as sharing a post to raise awareness of someone with cancer to help fund, it has become depended for employers, to use this website for support of their organization, it allows people to follow it and keep up to with it’s news.
