If Alexander Hamilton had Facebook

My first assignment was worth 3.5 stars, but I am going to claim that I did 4 stars worth of work. I put quite a bit of time in this one!

My job was to create a Facebook and Twitter for a person who was not around for the social media craze. I chose Alexander Hamilton, because I am obsessed with the Hamilton soundtrack and feel like I personally know him.

First I created the Fakebook Page for Hamilton using the fakebook tool. Check it out!! I created these sites while listening to the soundtrack, so that’s where the inspiration came from. I searched for pictures of all of his friends on his page, added posts, and researched some background for his profile. I thought this page is pretty funny but actually informative.

Next, I created a fake Tweet for Hamilton. I used the twister tool. When Hamilton’s affair with Reynolds took place in 1791, he published a pamphlet explaining himself and clearing his name from improper speculation. However, if this incident had happened in 2016, perhaps he would have tweeted about it:

This activity was time consuming because of the research I had to do, but it was a lot of fun.
