How does you media product
represent a particular social group?
What is a social group?
there are various ways in which social groups can be broken down either though:
- social class
After considering all these factors that affect a social group I have tried to represent my target audience in a positive way as they are sometimes scrutinized by the media.
How I have chosen to represent my targert audience through my magazine
My front cover
They way i have chosen to represent my social group in my front cover is through the use of mise-en-scene. the most projected colour on my whole magazine especially on my front cover is pink which such es a cool fun and feminine feel which are ways to describe my social group. the main image on my front cover shows how confident she feels due to the fact that she is wearing fact big hoop earrings and bright pink lipstick . Also the name of my magazine itself "CLAMOUR" Suggest everything my social group feel is important to them (Glamour and music) hence the name "clamour"
My contents page
They way i have chosen to represent my social group in my front cover is through the use of language and mode of address . I used a mixture of fun fresh and exciting words such as "wit wisdom and all-rounded popness" to represent my audience as there lives are always felling with adventure and being free so therefore it creates a connection between my target audience and my magazine.Also the language used in my contents page is quite assertive which could represent my social group as 13-19 are quite assertive individuals.

They way i have chosen to represent my social group in my front cover is through the use of mise-en-scene and use of language.The social group cares about how they look due to the pressure they face in the media so to go against that i wanted to portray the artists as a more normal and 'everyday girl' to give a different feel and impression of her in the front cover to suggest to my social group that they can be free to be themselves . also her clothes are similar to what someone in my social group will wear on a typical day due to the fact that they may not have a lot money to further create a more natural look for my magazine
