Nick Jennings's curator insight, September 11, 3:54 AM

Interestingly enough it has been seen in the past year there has been a significant drop in television viewing in the younger generation. This article discusses how traditional advertising media have been effected by technology advancements. Prime examples include the newspaper, and magazines which have been replaced with tablets and smartphones. The good news is that even though there is a decrease in television watching on a TV there is a consistent increase on people watching television on their devices. This shows that advertisers need to concentrate their focus on the new technology age and determine how best to target these consumers in this new media form. I find it interesting that this article talks about looking at these changes as a positive and not negative treating it as a new advertising opportunity. The article outlines how Youtube is a game changer in this category building an audience never seen before and Youtube can be viewed as an organisation to follow.
