  1. You did a very good job going into detail what the fan site had in store giving an excellent idea as to how the site worked. Your mention of the lack of critical writing and explanation that it is more for a photographic following of the actress gave great insight into how the fan site functioned. It would of been interesting if you pursued a deeper social explanation as to why the site is set up in such a way rather than having one with critical analysis of her roles/star image/personality etc.

  2. Our star’s fan sites are very similar in design. Personally I like the fan site you chose for McAdams far more than the one I found for Aniston. While I agree with you there is little critical analysis on the site it far surpasses jenaniston.net. I like your description of site because it really shows you explored the site and you commented on what worked and what didn’t work.
