A new establishment? Forrester finds social media ‘Creators’ plateau.
Creators publish blogs, web pages, videos, music, etc.
Does the plateau in this profile indicate that a decade into the blog revolution, social media channels will begin to more closely conform a traditional media model with a limited number of producers serving a large group of media consumers (who may consume interactively through reviews, comments and tagging)? Doesn’t the Technorati Top 25 show how clearly this structure has already emerged.
A new profile, ‘conversationalists’, was added to account for twitter use, which is, quite appropriately, something in-between ‘critic’ and ‘creator’.
