61. Social Media Historical Character Page – Due Thursday before class is over

Create a fake social media page for a historical character of your choice and a second profile page of a fictional character. Lay out your page to look like an Instagram profile page. Include the persons top 9 photos that they would have on their page, how many posts, followers, following, their name and profile image, and the layout of the page. Images do need to be school appropriate and you can edit and change them to make them more likely to be used by your historical character. Your images need to reflect an understanding of your character and their motivations and beliefs. Include in your post a paragraph explaining how the profile conveys the information about your character.  This should be 8×10, so make sure that your images are clear and large enough. Title your blog post “Social Media Page.” Make sure to include the paragraph after the image. Below are two examples.
