In What Ways Does Your Media Product Use, Develop Or Challenge Forms and conventions of real media Products?
The genre of my website is a charity, but to be more specific its a dog charity. one convention of charity websites is to use certain words, to try and get the user to feel emotionally touched, and try and get them to do something about dogs. A convention for a website for ages 25 and overs, would be to have video's and little paragraphs, also by having pictures this would demonstrate what a charity website can do to make a change. The main convention that is familiar with websites is the three column structure to a page, by having links in the left and right column and the middle being the main part of the page. the reason why i chose this is so that it is easy for the user to use, but it does look more professional as well. i used emotive language to get the users to want to help the dogs and their owners. With most websites there logo is within the top left side of the page, i was fond of this so used it as it made my site look for professional, this is also a big convention not just for charity websites but for most websites. This also shows the user who you are and so they can notify the brand/logo around streets and on billboards etc. Another convention is the side bar or the bar at the top of the website, these are a well known convention which is liked as it is easy access for all users.
