In the words of founder Joe Rey, "POPOLOGY® is founded as the science of the peoples popular, which is the consistent inquiry and research of what is most approved by the masses and the individual. These metrics are usually coveted by brands and corporations in their search for profits yet rarely are these metrics seen as a public access commodity with the power to evoke social change.
POPOLOGY® also recognizes that“media literacy” is the essential pathway to balance and toward an understanding of the premise of what is popular. The teaching of media literacy and infusing this knowledge as a lifestyle is required in today's aggressive media landscape.
POPOLOGY® Academy For Media and the Arts (PAFMA Inc) will help students to overcome the distractions of social media and bridge pathways of curiosity in order to gain access to knowledge rarely accessible in standard media literacy education platforms. PAFMA seeks to inspire scholars to take stock in their personal messaging and critically evaluate the world of media messaging for finding conclusions that fit their personal stories.
