An illuminating investigation into a category of enterprising girls desiring to “make it” in the social media economy however often discovering most effective unpaid work

Profound transformations in our digital society have introduced many enterprising girls to social media systems—from blogs to YouTube to Instagram—in hopes of channeling their potential into pleasing careers. In this eye-opening e book, Brooke Erin Duffy draws an awful lot-needed consideration to the hole between the handful who discover profitable careers and the relaxation, whose “passion initiatives” amount to free work for corporate manufacturers.
 
Drawing on interviews and fieldwork, Duffy offers incredible insights into the work and lives of vogue bloggers, beauty vloggers, and designers. She connects the actions of these girls to greater shifts in unpaid and gendered labor, offering a lens wherein to have in mind, anticipate, and critique broader transformations in the inventive financial system. At a second when social media present the rousing assurance that anybody can “make it”—and stand out amongst freelancers, temps, and gig employees—Duffy asks us all to accept as true with the stakes of now not getting paid to do what you’re keen on.
