"Pixelize Me!": A Semiotic Approach of Self-digitalization in Fashion Blogs

Abstract : Drawing on Jensen Schau and Gilly's findings (2003) on selfpresentation on personal webspaces, the purpose of this research is to get a better description of how consumers self digitalize on personal webspaces using specific digital stimuli. Using a semiotic approach on fashion blogs, we demonstrate that consumers selfdigitalize to generate authenticity, caricature, fiction or artefact. Strategies employed pertain to exemplarity, "mise-en-scène", "digital likeness" or "brand overwhelming". Possible impacts on brand relationship management are further developed, for example, brandconsumer association through self-stereotypes.
