In a social tv era contents become a strong part of the strategy. And if it will be confirmed what declared by Nielsen about social tv influence on ratings, contents will be the key

Asil's curator insight, August 10, 2013 5:56 PM

My favorate quote: "When Dickens was writing his novels, and they were serialized once a month, he read all the letters that came in. His novels were actually a real dialogue with his audience. He was writing to entertain them, and he got paid by the word, and he wanted them to be pleased. But he also wanted to make sure that they got the story he was trying to tell."

Nicole O'Rourke's curator insight, September 4, 2013 8:34 PM

This is an interesting take on affective disposition theory using twitter. Characters actions, intentions, attitudes or statements can remind people of their own life. The use of twitter allows people to become active participants. This article describes clearly how social media can be used as a form of entertainment as well as opening the door for marketers to use social media to create characters or transfer previously used characters in order to relate and interact with consumers.
