The MediaSnackers Meme #17


Keeping track of the growing MediaSnackers Meme.

(WORLD) We probably weren't the first to apply the 'snacking' metaphor to media, although there seems to be a growing adoption in terms of describing the new youth-media landscape—we thought it would be good to keep an eye on the growing MediaSnacking meme:

By then, people were already devoting more of their online time to pimping out their MySpace profiles or snacking on YouTube’s videos.

Talking about the demise of ebay.

I’ve also spoken recently about my hiatus from RSS and how I’ve significantly reduced the number of feeds I monitor and instead I “media-snack”

One guys approach to managing his information flow with gmail.

It’s 3am in Boston, two days after graduation and I’m still up digging through my reader, pretty feverishly checking out posts and videos on the Web. I’m media snacking and studying up on new concepts, thoughts, ideas and news in digital.

Even graduates are mediasnacking.

Metacafe, seeking to reach more “media-snacking” consumers, is launching a section of its video site devoted to short clips from “Nurse Jackie,” “Weeds,” “Big Brother” and other television shows.

A move towards serving bite-sized video offerings.

  1. This is quite interesting, not on the ‘look what’s out there’ way, but in the ‘hey people, track what’s going on online with people using your name’. Have you ever done a blog post on this?

    If not, I think it could be time to repackage a few words together sometime about brand tracking ‘MS Stylee’ and keeping on track of conversations on the web. Either way, there’s more leg room in these types of posts than we’re leveraging right now… not sure how to better it atm though – will have a think about that.
