Propaganda and Where It Was Placed

Propaganda was widely used during World War I, and helped aid a United States victory in the war. Propaganda was important on the home front, and helping out the war effort. In order for people to see propaganda and get the most out of it, the creators of the propaganda posted the posters in strategic locations. These strategic locations are not only important, but they were fairly popular places, in which, a lot of people can view the posters. Also, the propaganda creators displayed the posters in certain areas to attract a certain crowd and to get a certain reaction from each gender. For instance, the army wanted to enlist women, so they posted empowering propaganda posters for women to join the work force on the Homefront in salons, grocery stores, and other places women commonly go to.

Propaganda was a major key in the success of home front and victory in WorldWar I. Any sort of shop and area that was normally crowded was the ideal spot for a poster. The poster would touch thousands, if not millions of people, and it got a lot of different genders and ethnicities to join the war effort. I am planning to find a photo of shops and streets with propaganda posters, and I will do so by consulting an expert and using twitter as a network skill.

This was propaganda used to target men during WWI.

    I really like how you followed what others had said on your last blog post and looked into where these posters were put. I also think that is a great picture which shows what the propaganda looked like. One suggestion that I have is to maybe do some more research to see if this propaganda really helped to influence people to go to war. If you were able to do that I think this post could be even stronger.

    I thought you did a good job of working with the feedback that you had. Your picture was also really solid. I was wondering how they picked who did the propaganda? I think you should elaborate more and see if there were any immediate effects of the propaganda.
