Content: made simple

In a longer interview on consumer media by iMediaConnection.com, Professor Henry Jenkins from USC’s Annenberg School for Communications & Journalism offers this breathtakingly simple explanation of the role of content – and a fair warning to those who would exploit it with hands of ham:

“… In a world with many media choices, consumers are actively selecting what content is meaningful to them and circulating it consciously to people they think may be interested. They are deploying media content as gifts for their personal networks, as resources for ongoing conversations. Until marketers understand [this], they are doomed to insult and alienate the very people they are hoping to attract.”
