Audience participation is seen everywhere, games, videos and mostly online. The example that I have picked out is Twitter. Twitter is a huge growing social network where people speak their minds (with the limit of 140 characters of course) and the ability to follow and access friends or other people’s profile. Photographs, videos and posts are seen (unless put on private) and also can be retweeted and shared.
HASHTAGS on Twitter is a trend created by the users. The audience participates in the newest trends or make trends themselves. This is to expose content for any audience to see. This causes communication within different groups of people creating a community with similar interests and topics. It is easy to search a certain topic just by typing in the hashtag instead of scrolling down to find it. Hashtags are not just for the use of trends but also for the use of marketing brands, movies, clothing etc. To improve reputation or create awareness of something.
This is an example of what is trending on Twitter at the moment according to hashtags and how many times that they are mentioned in posts. Audience participation is also seen on Facebook, Google + and also Instagram. Twitter is just one of the examples that is the most popular.
can you think of any popular hashtags that have trended on twitter?
