“Transmedia is a word for old people”

“Transmedia is a word for old people” | Tourism Storytelling, Social Media and Mobile | Scoop.it

As a relative newbie to transmedia, I’ve been feeling psyched about the possibilities, particularly when it comes to storytelling for non-profits. Think of the possibilities for engaging donors and volunteers, bringing organizations’ missions to life in a visceral way.

But when a friend of mine shared my obsession with her 17-year-old daughter, this was her response:

“Transmedia is a word for old people.”

Interestingly, not every young person lives the way the author's friend's daughter suggested. And not every old person needs a word to describe this practice.

"My friend’s daughter explained that young people don’t need a word to describe transmedia because this is how they live every day. The narrative of their own lives unfolds across different social media platforms and they consciously create identities for themselves depending on where, what, how and with whom they share information."

Love the comment posted below the article: "The word represents an attack on the institutional tendency to retain control and ownership of cultural vitality... I think your friend's daughter is absolutely right and only slightly wrong because transmedia is another word for power, and sharing control of culture is not the primary objective of the folks who are presently in control of the definition of transmedia."

Charles Peirce:  "As I alluded to in a previous post, Transmedia is in the midst of a debate about its definition and who has the authority to determine that definition. It is one of those discussions I think best observed from the sidelines, but then I have no financial or artistic stake in that debate. However, I do think they’re important terms to understand."
