Post #1-10/18/16 Emerging Media



Social media has changed drastically over the years. This is one of the many emerging media aspects that has changed the way companies do business. Social media plays important roles in the marketing strategies of many of the world’s top companies and the ever changing way people connect and discuss brands plays a huge role in the success or failure of a product. While people in the past would turn to television or newspaper to find information on a new product entering the market, today social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest all are bigger players for the tech savvy world we live in today. I look forward to discussing these more in the coming weeks and learning new aspects of how people use emerging media in the world today!

  1. Social media has grown since the days of chat rooms on AOL. The first step to the present day social media was MySpace, which allowed users to get into contact with friends or become a music sensation.

    An individual can go to a company’s website or social media page to read views about the company. As a consumer, I look at a company’s Facebook page for reviews and the frequency of posts. The reviews should be read with critical thinking skills. Some of the positive reviews can be written by a social media team and the negative reviews might have been written by their competition. One of the biggest factors for me is the Facebook posts. I look at the last night of a company’s post. If the post is six months or older, I assume the company has little social engagement and may not want to communicate with their consumers.
