Hi, in need of group members . . . please comment. I’m also willing to switch / compromise topics if necessary.
1) MTA’s Subway Etiquette Ads
I’m a commuter, so subway etiquette is important to me. It is one of the things that gets my blood boiling and I have to rant to somebody about it at least once a day. One person’s actions can affect everyone’s mood for the rest of the day. For this project, I think it would be fun to create humorous ads to promote awareness of the rules of subway etiquette, just as some of the ads we see in the subways today.
2) Kids are growing up too fast
Sexual activities are very prominent in media. Is there no such thing as decency or preserving innocence anymore? Examples of T.V. shows, Toddlers & Tiaras or Teen Mom. Also, you see child or teen stars with tons of makeup and wardrobe, pushed to look older. This is not right. What happened to childhood?
Media advertises materialism. This promotes bad habits in our youth. Consequences are debt. Concepts of earning and saving need to be brought up to balance materialistic ads.
