Music, Film, TV: How social media changed the entertainment experience - Brian Solis

Music, Film, TV: How social media changed the entertainment experience - Brian Solis | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Today everybody should know that social media are much more than a mode effect. This excellent post will convince you, if you aren't yet. [note mg]

 

Social media is more than a digital water cooler for TV and movies.

More importantly, their activity influences behavior. Behavior counts for everything. Studying it is just the beginning of course. In order to understand and eventually steer behavior, we must translate activity into insights and in turn, translate insights into actionable strategies and programs.


The Hollywood Reporter recently published an exclusive poll about social media led by market research firm Penn Schoen Berland. As the report opens, THR notes, “There’s a sea change afoot in how Americans discover and consume entertainment.”

 

According to the study, 88% of respondents view social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook as a new form of entertainment.

#7. They see money as a responsibility, not a reward

#8. They don't think they're remarkable
