Welcome comments[edit]

7Gbs.Net, Ms-LadyJ welcome comments and edits to this article. --Jblossom 19:58, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

One question: are you sure about this? I thought the "happyization" of consumerism (or the equivocation of contentedness) was just an unfounded Orwellian conspiracy theory. --Tene (talk) 20:03, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Revision, 5 Years Later (2014)[edit]

Taking a go at fleshing out this article a bit. I'm going through it with a fine-toothed comb, trying to eliminate anything that can be considered a weasel word and unoriginal research. In doing this, I'm hoping to add some new sources to this article and give it a more NPOV.

My first go through will be to clean up some of the language to hopefully make it less "weaselly." Torma616 (talk) 03:26, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Added references and links to Marshall McLuhan and his phrase "the medium is the message" in the Content value section of the article. Torma616 (talk) 03:52, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Moved the last paragraph from "Content value" to "technological effects on content." This paragraph deals with content becoming more of a general term and becoming more readily available, largely in part due to the internet, further echoing McLuhan and his comments about a "global village." Torma616 (talk) 04:10, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Added more missing references Torma616 (talk) 04:37, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Added a section discussing the difference between content and medium, hopefully to clear up some confusion on the blurred division between them.

IMHO, what this article still lacks most is sources pertaining to the core meaning of content. Prior to my edits, there was one reference to the way in which content was defined and 4 references to criticism of "content" (all 4 of which were in the very last sentence of the article). Surely, there are other intellectuals than McLuhan who have commented on media and the way in which information is spread in the digital age. The article could benefit from more scholarly sources regarding this information. Torma616 (talk) 04:58, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Content Audiences[edit]

This section could include the many ways in which different mediums content is used to target specific audiences. For example, commercials on television about Barbies will be used to grasp the attention of young girls. Vbaraja2 (talk) 14:35, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
