The digital landscape is changing, shaped by waves of change in media, technology, identity, and the basic ways we evaluate our experiences. These are some of the major waves of change in digital experiences that may be leading us to a world of co-creation and exchange through interaction.

Digital Natives Digital Opportunities for digital marketers Natives » Address digital generations as real generations » Allow digital natives to define multiple individual identities » Allow people to connect digital identities as they choose » Use “influence bundling” to bridge digital generation gaps

Digital Natives = Social Co-Creators “Some 93% of teens use the internet, and more of them than Digital ever are treating it as a venue for social interaction -- a place Natives where they can share creations, tell stories, and interact with others.” “...content creation is not just about sharing creative output; it is also about participating in conversations fueled by that content. Nearly half (47%) of online teens have posted photos where others can see them, and 89% of those teens who post photos say that people comment on the images at least ʻsome of the time.ʼ”

Growing Up Digital

Digital Generation Gap ??

“Identity seems to me to be a function of networks of influence.” “You are, in part, your personally constructed brand, but equally or more so the narratives that traverse your network of influence.” Eliot Frick IFTF

Digital Natives & Co-Creation “The Pew Internet & American Life Project has found that 64% of Digital online teens ages 12-17 have participated in one or more among Natives a wide range of content-creating activities on the internet, up from 57% of online teens in a similar survey at the end of 2004.” “Girls continue to dominate most elements of content creation. Some 35% of all teen girls blog, compared with 20% of online boys, and 54% of wired girls post photos online compared with 40% of online boys. Male teens, however, do dominate one area -- posting of video content online. Online boys are nearly twice as likely as online girls (19% vs. 10%) to have posted a video online where others could see it.”

Casual Games “ʼCasual gamingʼ is loosely defined as anything easy to learn that It’s All a doesnʼt require a big time commitment, like Solitaire, Bejeweled Game or Diner Dash. Games like those have 200 million active players, and pull in $2.25 billion yearly, according to a new Casual Gaming Association report.” “However …in the future, players will begin to embed games on their own pages, whether thatʼs a Facebook profile or a personal webpage, and casual games will become much more personalized.” “Although casual game players are evenly distributed through the population, women account for 74% of all paying players, just as young males dominate the hardcore gaming market. Both segments of the gaming industry would like to move into each otherʼs paying base.”

Casual Collective “Paul Preece, creator of viral real- time strategy classic Desktop Tower Defense, has a new game site: Casual Collective launches today, backed by $1 million in seed funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners.”

iPhone & Casual Games Still, some game developers are choosing Apple over Nintendo or Sony because It’s All a there are no pricey game cartridges to manufacture for the iPhone and there is no need Game for a retail distribution network. quot;The barriers to entry are such that anyone with a great idea can efficiently bring them to market,quot; said Bart Decrem, a Silicon Valley executive who formed a company called Tapulous Inc. to make iPhone games earlier this year. So far, Mr. Decrem has had more than 2.5 million downloads of a free music game called quot;Tap Tap Revenge,quot; where players tap and shake their devices to the beat of popular tunes. Now the Palo Alto, Calif., firm is selling ads in the game to sponsors such as car maker Jaguar and Comedy Central. It has also released a $4.99 version featuring the rock band Nine Inch Nails. The company declined to discuss its revenue. For people like John Sims, a bank teller in Denver, the iPhone is winning out over dedicated portable game players. Though he concedes the Sony and Nintendo devices provide better quality games, most iPhone games cost far less. Plus, he prefers to carry only one device.
