The Value of Media Engagement Part 2 (2/28)

Posted by sydneyb612 on May 1, 2017

A point that stood out to me in the book about media engagement is how consumers see their media. When talking about TV or movies people all over the world watch these things on so many different platforms. Some are legal some are illegal, but most people really do not care if they get to watch what they want to watch when they want to watch it. Consumers do not understand the consequence this has on some of the creators though. When they do not watch a show or movie where the creators can track how many people and who is watching, it makes it harder for them to do their job. Now I know this may be counter acted when some people post review on what they did or did not like where the creators can see it, even after watching the content they were watching illegal. There are million and billions of people consuming these products every day, so how can the creators keep up with it anyways? Well that is a good question maybe those people cannot keep up with it and maybe we should not worry because this is all a waste of time. No, that’s wrong! Consumers should care because if people want to get what they want out of the media they need to participate and show their interest in some sort of reliable way. This needs to happen so the way we share and consume media can improve as time goes on and not continue to get worse with time.
