    Default visibility

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "visibility" in:

    "She and the rest of her team have a high visibility in Australia."

    They were talking about a rbike rider and her mate riders.

    Does "visibility" here mean "popularity"??????

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm afraid it probably does. (The outside chance is that, as bike riders, they're wearing 'visibility jackets'.)

    b

    PS Not just (and not necessarily) popularity. They're just seen a lot in media events - which could, of course, lead to - or result from - popularity.

    You can be visible and not popular. Far too many "celebrities" these days are known, but not for any good reason. (Think: reality TV)
