No need for intro, conclusions etc

Individual Research Project ? 40%
Students are required to conduct and communicate the findings of a Netnographic research project aimed at generating consumer insights in a digital context of their choosing.

Netnography (Kozinets 3E, 2020) is a specific type of qualitative social media research. It emphasises online traces, interactions and socialities. Social media is filled with utterances (traces). Twitter provides 500 million utterances per day (6000 per second). YouTube offers 432,000 hours of utterance filled video every day. Many netnographies study these utterances. Netnography specifies particular procedural guidelines and takes a pragmatic ?how-to? approach to studying social media using a cultural lens.

Netnographic research is a step by step process. Each step represents a milestone along the project pathway. Formative assessment will be utilised to provide you with opportunities to receive constructive feedback on the five main stages of the process. This will take place in semester 2.

I need the following:

Key Literature (500 words)
This can be presented in bulleted format but be conscious to include as many citations as you deem relevant
Demonstrate where your focus fits in with other qualitative research that has been conducted on your topic.
Methodology – outline of the key steps taken in conducting your netnographic research (500 words)
This should be done with a level of clarity that renders the project replicable
Insights (1k words)
The main findings of your research.
MY PROJECT TOPIC:
Is based on Ryanair’s TikTok and Twitter.
Please see attached file for prompt. It needs to be very toughtful responses and critical analysis
Netnography proposal

Karl Butler- C18391941

What can we learn about engagement with Ryanair from an empirical study of consumers on TikTok??

1.
My netnographic proposal is based on the recent phenomenon regarding Airlines (specifically Ryanair airline) taking social media platforms by storm. Tik Tok has become one of the most widely used and influential social media platforms over the past 3-4 years. It has become a platform known to create overnight sensations while hosting previous influencers and allowing them to become more accessible because of current trends and dances. I also will be analysing Ryanair?s user interaction on Twitter as their admins have been active on this platform also, creating funny images, whitty comebacks/remarks and entertaining tweets.
Ryanair?s method of using the younger generations? trends, on platforms like TikTok and Twitter trends to generate attention and appeal to consumers has yielded great results as seen through quantitative results by like, comments and views.
As Ryanair recruited fans from both sides of the Atlantic, it has an outstanding 1.5 million followers and 44.5 million likes, sealing itself as the most popular airline on the platform. Ryanair used current trends and jokes to inform their potential consumers while using entertaining songs and trends. Their activity has been noticed internationally for funny replies, quick remarks, and entertaining videos.
What interested me most was over the past year, Ryanair airline?s presence on my Tik Tok feed, which was a hot topic of conversation within friend groups. I find this phenomenon quite intriguing and I would love to investigate this further. The development of these airline pages has created a new space for interaction and new marketing techniques which would be interesting to research on an empirical level using comments, likes and shares.
