POP Blogilates

The rise of social media has allowed the existence of communities such as POP Blogilates. The community functions around Cassey Ho, however the interconnected nature of digital presence allows members to exist on multiple platforms in multiple ways. Different platforms allow different affordances, defined by the “relationship between the materiality of technological artifacts and the lived practices of communication.” (Baym & McVeigh-Schultz 2015) These affordances allow a diverse practice of communication within the community and evaluating them allows an understanding of the POPster communicative ecology.
