Self-concept is defined as a way of looking at oneself. The development of a positive self-concept is the basic ingredient for implementing a personal branding strategy. Personal branding is defined as an individual's effort to market himself to gain positive credibility recognition from others. The results of the study indicate that the caption upload contains a self-concept, includes self-introduction about the current condition, expectations and self-assessment of the advantages and disadvantages that are in accordance with the concept of forming personal branding.
