Thanks to Anna Antonijevic for sharing this first link with me about how we are consuming media content differently due to COVID-19.
According to the data represented (a nice example of data visualisation):
8-23 year olds: over half of this group say they are consuming significantly more online video content than before the outbreak.
25-39 year olds: are consuming more content across several media types including online video, online TV and broadcast TV.
40-54 year olds: have increased their TV watching more than any other generation.
55-75 year olds: appear to have changed their media consumption the least.
What do you notice about your own habits? Is the summarised data inline with what you are observing in others?
I am wondering what happens when these changes become habits and then influence future expectations.
The change in media use has already begun to shift some deep rooted stigma attached to video games. People are using video games, like Animal Crossing, as a way to escape and connect with others.
