If Tyler Durden made use of the internet for Fight Club and Project Mayhem, how would he do it? How would he inform and recruit people? How would he give out assignments? How we keep updated with what his group members are up to? Would he be more or less successful and yield similar or different results? How would the story change if conducted this way? Think not so much in terms of Tyler and the narrator as character but Fight Club and Project Mayhem as social groups and movements.

If Tyler made use of the internet for Fight Club and Project Mayhem he would use Youtube. He would inform and recruit people by filming a fight session with his current members, and then posting the video on youtube. Once more and more people start watching this video, the video will appear on the home page of youtube under "Most Watched Videos." This will get other people interested in Fight Club. In order to give out assignments Tyler would film himself talking about the assignment and then he would post it on youtube. He would update his viewers by posting a new video every week. I think Tyler would be more a lot more successful because millions of people have access to the internet, and therefore can see what what Fight Club is all about, and join in. The story would change if conducted this way because the whole world would probably be involved in Project Mayhem, and everything would turn chaotic.
