The Recommendations Revolution
How Entertainment Discovery and Recommendations are Changing in the Connected Device Era
Traditional models for entertainment discovery and recommendations are in the midst of a dramatic shift that began over a decade ago. The growth of algorithmic recommendations from the likes of Netflix and Amazon has created a departure from the way in which consumers have traditionally discovered new TV programs, video, music or other types of content, while the growing reliance upon one’s own social graph and interest communities are also having increasing sway on how consumer’s allocate their time and money.
Whether a consumer’s choice of content is influenced by algorithmic profiling or their own social graph, it’s become clear how crucial it is for all members of the value chain – from storefront to distributor to content studio and creator – to understand how consumers find and ultimately decide on content.
