Faunalytics reported on the results of Laura Fernández's research a few weeks ago. Now this animal advocacy Charity has turned Laura's results into the video: : Faunalytics Explains: Using Graphic Images In Advocacy
This is the summary Faunalytics provides along with the video
This study explores the use of graphic or "shock" imagery in animal advocacy (i.e. photos of animals experiencing extreme suffering) and how it makes an impression on the public. The findings suggest that such imagery can kindle people's concern for animals and willingness to take action; however, it's important to use explicit imagery strategically, as over-exposure can lead people to become desensitized to the content. We offer four tips to make sure advocates use explicit images effectively in their campaigns: 1) Shock must be balanced with consent. 2) Discomfort must be balanced with direction. 3) Realism must be balanced with hope. 4) Scope must be balanced with individuality.
