This Internet thing may catch on • “The use of the Internet has become one of the great unifying experiences shared by billions of people across the world and this is now causing a parallel trend with the ‘re-socialisation’ of the media consumption experience... “The combination of digital access, mobility and social networking is seeing consumption of all forms of media migrate from a solo activity towards being a social experience with viewers use social networking forums to discuss and share their views and content.” -Marcel Fenez, Global Leader, Entertainment & Media practice, PricewaterhouseCoopers, 6/15/2010 press release
What’s the difference • Facebook • Type/share all the multimedia you want • Narrowcast to just “friends” usually • You approve friends • Many ways to target audiences • Support large app community inside and outside its walls • A destination • Twitter • Short messages: 140 characters • Broadcast “tweets” • Anyone can follow anyone • Less targeting capability (but changing soon) • Smaller app community mainly connecting from outside its walls • A pointer to a destination Replacing the Web Replacing e-mail and message boards
