Inception Trend Summary
Since the release of the film Inception, featuring Leonardo Dicaprio it has been one of the most
popular topics in social media amongst my group of friends (18- 35 yrs) and worldwide.
I noticed the hype around it when I daily was checking out facebook and twitter, continuously
seeing updates from people on my news thread. This made me not only very curious to see the
film, but I felt pressure to keep in the know how.
Doing a bit of a dig online I found out on…
it is one of the most popular topics currently pg 3-4
people are posting their thoughts, which spark conversation pg 5-6
people are searching for “Inception” and posting about it on blogs (which is
expected with any new release) pg 7-8
Findings and Insights
Sat 24 July 2010 These findings confirm that twitter and facebook are popular platforms for people to voice their
opinions and to ignite conversation. Also, once enough activity is generated people in an online
community become conscious of new trends or changes occurring (e.g. when Michael Jackson
passed away or Inception was released).
Opportunity for Brands
People are communicating about their experiences through social media and sharing information
with another. For brands, if they create something worthy of sharing and talking about people will
pick it up and want to share it. There is an opportunity for ideas, campaigns, content to grow
organically, reaching the masses while successfully communicating a message or changing
perceptions E.g. Old Spice and the Fun Theory has been viewed by millions.
Inception is one of the most popular topics for people to tweet about currently.
