Breaking Through the Clutter: Social media for publicity, promotion and profit?
As traditional print & broadcast media become more and more obsolete, as the record store has all but died, as digital retailers and editorial websites have increased in power and influence, a new culture of readers and consumers has emerged—a group that goes first and foremost to the internet for all of its information & entertainment needs. We discuss this culture and how they interact with each other in real time. Topics will include Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pandora, and other important ways social media is used to spread the word on music and other topics.
