Week 10 Discussion Question

Which of the five types of convergence media do you understand least – and how does it affect you?

By: Shelly F.

Of the five types of convergence media I understand multi-platform convergence media the least.  My understanding is that it’s more like a business deal than a partnership.  The companies don’t merge, but they agree to utilize each other’s resources.  In biology they call this a symbiotic relationship.  Each benefits from the other in some way.  So the movie preview of The Hobbit posted on YouTube by collider.com (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0k3kHtyoqc), which is owned by Top Lingo Development, would be a good example of this because YouTube gets site traffic and Top Lingo Development gets a movie promotion.  This affects me in that the same message could be presented while being funded for the purpose of producing different outcomes.

    This is a good example. Good work, and nice touch with relating this concept to science. And a interesting touch with the two companies working off each other, I had no idea.
