At the first glance TINA seems to be the best “attention-h0″ ever, famous for her trashy and brave “user generated content”. Her youtube videos are absolutley authentic, the internet loves her, and she has a big fanbase. But why would a person expose itself in such a excessive way? Just for being internet famous?

Her recent flyer promoting “Tina’s Essay Contest” looks so perfectly trashy and 90s style, that it smells like the work of a professional. Color, typography, well-cropped backgrounds – it’s hard to do it better. Compare the flyer of TINA with Bennet4$senate’s (F@ Lab artist)

Is this the work of professional amateurs? For me, it is “internet famo art”, following even bigger footsteps than Lonelygirl15:

TINA also stands for “There Is No Alternative“, a term of the famous sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. Wikipedia quotation: Bourdieu claims that how one chooses to present one’s social space to the world, one’s aesthetic dispositions, depicts one’s status and distances oneself from lower groups. DAMN!

As TINA knows how-to present her social space to the world really well, we should look forward to her further career. See also: http://internetfamo.us/class/

This was an experiment we did last semester w/ Mr. G. Barlow as part of the Internet Famous course at Parsons (season II coming next semester). A couple of things we learned in the process:

1) You can buy your way into awards such as “Most Viewed Per Day/Week/Month” in a given category (in our case How To & Style)
2) Youtube view count vs unique visitors (tracked independently from youtube) match up pretty close when buying famo (44,716 Youtube views and 57,663 unique visitors) .
3) In our experience if you pay for 100,000 visitors it will translate into roughly 45,000 youtube views.
4) If you’re paying to drive traffic to a youtube clip on autoplay you’ll get banned if there is audio.

The stats page is publicly available here if you’re interested in doing further research in famo studies. Original project page here
