Whirlpool EMEA presents: Digital School, Lesson 5: What is a UGC?
In this lesson, we explain how the methods of use and the production of content has completely changed over the last few years.

People as passive spectators have become producers of content: everyone has access to a camera and software for the in-house development of multimedia content.The explosion of platforms such as YouTube, Flickr and Instagram, etc. ... has enabled everyone to become a content maker.

The contents of the web are often remixed or characterized by fads that follow an unstoppable collective stream. This stream produces new content out of old, which inevitably impacts on the life of the brands.

People as passive spectators have become producers of content: everyone has access to a camera and software for the in-house development of multimedia content.The explosion of platforms such as YouTube, Flickr and Instagram, etc. ... has enabled everyone to become a content maker. The contents of the web are often remixed or characterized by fads that follow an unstoppable collective stream. This stream produces new content out of old, which inevitably impacts on the life of the brands. 2

It reflects the expansion of media production through new technologies that are accessible and affordable to the general public. All digital media technologies are included, such as question-answer databases, digital video, blogging, podcasting, forums, review-sites, social networking, social media, mobile phone photography and wikis. 2

The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins for his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, although his concept refers to a much broader category of cultural information. An Internet meme may take the form of an image, hyperlink, video, picture, website, or hashtag. It may be just a word or phrase, including intentional misspelling of words such as “more” as “moar” or “the” as “teh.” These small movements tend to spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, or news sources. They may relate to various existing Internet cultures or subcultures, often based on sites like 4chan, tumblr, and numerous others. Visit 4chan or http://imgur.com/ now to discover how teenagers and young web users remix and create thousand of new memes every day! 18
