Facebook Project by ashrafp


									                      African Culture Facebook Project


For this project you will be creating a fake Facebook page for someone from
the Arab, Swahili, Bantu, or Ashanti ethnic groups. You will not be utilizing
the Facebook website rather you will create a fake layout on a small poster
board or PowerPoint to show your work. For those of you unfamiliar with
Facebook it is basically a self created profile that typically allows you to upload
photos, tell people what you are currently doing at the moment, answer
questions about yourself, become friends with people, and displays other pieces
of information about yourself.

On a small poster board, you will divide the page up into the person’s wall,
profile, and info. The wall should include at least 4 pictures that they posted,
and the names and country information for 4 people they are friends with.
The profile should include 2 posts from you, and one post from a friend (The
post have to show knowledge of the culture of your chosen country – NO
RANDOM POSTS). The information section should be divided into About
Me ( person’s name, hometown, gender, favorite quotations/proverbs,
religion, and birthdate – BASE THIS ON INFORATION ABOUT THE
CULTURE OF THE COUNTRY); Education and Work (where the person
attends school), and Likes and Interests, ,( activities, books, music, television

All posts should reflect knowledge of the person’s African culture. NO
