Is traditional media still important? Well actually…Yes Traditional media still “primes the pipe” of a significant portion of online communication. Traditional reporters still add disproportionate cache’ to a conversation. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Traditional media is starting to “get it” and leading with their strengths while expanding their Social Media offerings.

Well actually…Yes

Traditional media still “primes the pipe” of a significant portion of online communication.

Traditional reporters still add disproportionate cache’ to a conversation.

Does Using Traditional Media Relations Still Work? It’s almost never enough It’s becoming an add-on approach, rather than the starting point But…It can work great in synergy with a social media approach Answer: Yes. But really…Not by itself

Social= Spreading the Word There are a million people with an opinion. Opinions count. More than ever! The barrier to entry is near zero. There are powerful conversations online. Some of those conversations have only a few people who care about them (and they are still powerful). Search is the great equalizer.

Life of a 25-54 Read off-line newspapers and magazines Like mobile for voice (and a few for data) but do not see their world on mobile phones Aggregate information on-line and use RSS (though few know the term) Community important for tasks, much less so for social. Will stay put. Trust experts on factual information but rely heavily on reviews of peers on hotels, electronics, etc When they create content it is to share reviews and experiences (not diaries or intimacies) Rely heavily on personalized portals for news and financials Care GREATLY about sources of news and information on-line Heavy into e-mail The Impact of the Internet--Year Six Report, 2006 Surveying the Digital Future—The World Internet Project USC Annenberg School--Center for the Digital Future

Life of a 12-24 Will never read a newspaper but attracted to some magazines Will never own a land-line phone Will not watch television on someone else’s schedule Trust unknown peers more than experts For first time willing (2005) to pay for digital content. Never before. Little interest in the source of information and most information aggregated. Community at the center of Internet experience Everything will move to mobile Less interested in television than any generation before (except as a display for videogames) Want to move content freely from platform to platform with no restrictions Want to be heard (user generated) Use Text Messaging (and IM). Think e-mail is for their parents Expect content to be available in video form The Impact of the Internet--Year Six Report, 2006 Surveying the Digital Future—The World Internet Project - USC Annenberg School--Center for the Digital Future
