Emerging media and a growing body of research findings lead to a certain feeling of insecurity in marketing: "Do I the right things to reach my target audience?". Media research have to provice insights, which helps marketing experts to understand the changing media world from a consumer point of view. UM's study "Media in Mind" provide such kinds of real insights, which helps us to understand media usage, attention allocation and the role of influencers in a "network of experts". The presentation was given at the ESOMAR conference "WM3 2008" in Budapest.
