Select a YouTube video that will be the topic of your third essay. Post the URL, and answer these questions:
For whom is the video? As specifically as possible define the audience of the video. YouTube itself keeps statistics on age, nation, and gender. Consider also sexuality, race, socioeconomic class, immigration status, religion, and formal education. Note that all of these different categories shift when they cross cultural and national boundaries.
What are the needs and desires of this audience? How is this audience developing?
How does the video attend to these needs and desires? You might consider aspects of the video such as form, structure, rhythm, visuality, and genre.
