HypedMind (HMD)

HypedMind Association
at University of Toronto

Pop culture has conquered most of the social media platforms. It has been growing rapidly since late 20th and early 21st century and with no sign of slowing down. Generally speaking, pop culture refers to many different, abundant fields, such as entertainment, fashion, sports, news and technology. People with age boundaries between ten to thirty are mostly attracted to pop culture. Linguistically speaking, “hype” has a meaning of “to excite others” by using the method of publicizing something showily. “HypedMind” offers the supreme opportunity for fanatics to exchange and share experience and to allow “rookies” who are captivated by “hype” to get involved and positively influenced by it. Long-termly speaking, this may also affect their lifestyles. Pop culture has been integrated people’s daily lives; it is certain that yours is as well.

As mentioned above, pop-culture mainly focuses on the five categories and effect the way people behave; solid examples can be illustrated in real life. NBA has proximately 10 million subscriptions every game night with unbelievably numerous numbers of re-posts on social media platforms, which indicates “hype”. Strangers bond with each other based on their fandoms; newbies pick up basketballs and step on the courts. In addition to that, music, as an important element of pop-culture can be found everywhere. Stores play music for their customers; restaurant play music to enhance appetite; 90% of people wear earphones on public transportations. From “Billy Jean” to “See you again”; from Elvis to Drake. The change in music style is obvious, so is the taste of the public. Some artists have developed their own dressing styles which affect a lot of followers to start imitating them, also based on that dressing style, artists develop their own unique brand which drives the pop-culture to a new direction. The focus of “HypedMind” is to discuss pop-culture related topics and let this interesting culture to impact new crowds.
