Mining Books To Map Emotions Through A Century : NPR

Mining Books To Map Emotions Through A Century : NPR | Publishing Trends and Innovations | Scoop.it
Anthropologists find that the use of "emotional" words in all sorts of books has soared and dipped across the past century, roughly mirroring each era's social and economic upheavals.

 

"Which brings us to the most surprising finding of the study: We think of modern culture — and often ourselves — as more emotionally open than people in the past. We live in a world of reality television and blogs and Facebook — it feels like feelings are everywhere, displayed to a degree that they never were before. But according to this research, that's not so.

 

"Generally speaking, the usage of these commonly known emotion words has been in decline over the 20th century," Bentley says. We used words that expressed our emotions less in the year 2000 than we did 100 years earlier — words about sadness and joy and anger and disgust and surprise.

 

In fact, there is only one exception that Bentley and his colleagues found: fear. "The fear-related words start to increase just before the 1980s," he says."

Incredibly rich insights that will serve marketers and content creators well.

 

The dominance of fear in recent history when the content being surveyed is reaching prediminantly healthy, housed, educated communities is interesting.

#YouTube Wants to Be Your Must-See TV but redesign may be step back | Publishing Trends and Innovations | Scoop.it
Google has restyled its YouTube page to make it easier for viewers to keep up with channel subscriptions. The redesign builds on last year's introduction of a Guide on the home page. Google is now displaying the YouTube Guide across all devices.

 

"YouTube didn't become the success it did by copying another media," Bogardus said. "It created something new and different that no one had seen before. Copying an existing service seems like a step back innovation-wise, rather than a step forward.

Eric Moran's curator insight, February 5, 2013 1:42 PM

Having lived through this era at one of the papers on this list. I can attest to much that is stated in this article. People simply digest content the way they want to now, not the way that publishers want it delivered. People now have the power to seek out the content that they want.They can now deliver, create and share content with the many tools avialable. The shift of content power will continue.

 

Newspapers are doing the best they can to deliver and create content to readers. The problem is, they typically resort to old methods or try to recreate something that user does not want.

Steven Mallach's comment, July 5, 2013 12:21 AM
I am still convinced that newspapers can thrive in a content rich environment. Perhaps the key is adding value to the print media experience. Although it may seem counter intuitive (what's the value add?) newspapers can act as gatekeepers to content using technology like augmented reality. The use of mobile devices like Smartphones can allow readers of niche publications at least to access further granularity of information through scanning a page and linking to online content. Using this model newspapers or specialist publications can become gatekeepers, sort of print content curators if you will. People (at least some demographics like those over 50) still like the comfort of print, the key is adding value.
