This week I have started on making the fake accounts for our micro-nation within our transmedia story, ‘Connor’. And let me tell you, its not all it’s cracked up to be. After making a couple of accounts it’s actually really annoying because Hotmail and Facebook both start getting suspicious and lock you out of doing any more accounts. Secondly, its hard thinking like a 17 year old (I know it was only 4 years ago, but a lot has changed). I can’t even remember what my priorities were as a teenager in school, but I think the general consensus for 17-18 year olds is that parties, alcohol, and boys/girls are paramount. At least that is the case for the ‘cool’ kids we are creating who bully Connor. I guess the group Instafame )who are doing a story about a girl called Emily who constantly updates her tumblr) are going through similar challenges as they too have to think like a young teenage girl.
I have made Connor Flanagan’s Facebook, but am struggling to fill it with information. I guess thats mostly due to the fact that Mia is writing his blogs and Tiana is filling his diary, so both of them have a better and deeper knowledge Connors psyche. I’ll have to pass along Connor’s Facbeook details so that they can both add the extra parts into his Facebook page that I’m clearly missing.
