Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 4, 8:03 AM

If our media was still an inward, analogue society of public service networks, Breaking Bad could never have been made, let alone exploited to global success and acclaim.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 19, 12:07 PM

The logical extension of this is as audiences change, it is critical to set aside your assumptions about who they are and what they want and go find out.  This is why customer/audience persona development from a psychological perspective is so important.

Why are TV companies often the worst offenders when it comes to producing original and creative multiplatform offerings? Why are most just serving up brochure websites, the occassional ‘send in your video via YouTube’ or ‘tweet in what you think, we really want to know’?

"There’s a huge underserved population today who are consuming content on their phones and we’re giving them a crappy experience. We’re telling them, “Here’s how the web works for you: You have to pinch and zoom your way through sites that were designed for a much larger monitor, you’re going to get errors and the fonts are going to be really tiny.”

The article pointed out that we gotta do something about advergame before it become worst. However, we should remember that advergame is a tool for advertising so there is also good and bad sides.
Kay'Gee Rox's comment, September 7, 2013 5:32 AM
Thank you for posting this article. "Catch them while they're young" huh! McDonalds does this a lot. I feel it's unethical for kids who can't process these games as what they really are - marketing strategy. I still think advergames directed at kids should be brands/products that will advance their health & well-being. e.g. healthy snacks. Advertisers owe this much to society.
Geveta Cook's comment, September 9, 2013 12:59 AM
It's ok - IHOP is “sensitive to the issue of advertising to children.” True point for consideration though, the ethics debate on ads for children during certain hours was an issue, but the length of exposure is vastly extended through games. Good find Maree thanks for posting :)
