Authority in the Age of Overload

23,188

Published on

Social media is out of beta. We’re entering the era of validation. In the Validation Era, intimacy is in and publicness may be out - or at least on the decline. Quality is the new black. What this means that both individuals and businesses will need to increasingly work harder to earn their way in and remain in their stakeholders' circle of trust. During this session, Steve Rubel will explain how businesses can activate their domain-level experts to share their knowledge across four spheres of media – traditional, “tradigital,” owned and social.

ACTS

  4. 4. ACT
I:
COMMERCIALIZATION
(1994
–
2002)
 During
the
Internets
early
days,
publishing
is
costly
and
inaccessible
to
 the
masses.
Media
conglomerates
invest
to
extend
their
authority
into
 the
digital
realm.
The
dot‐com
boom
gives
rise
to
a
few
new
players.
