LNWH Digital Effects Marketing
Digital technology also provides some cost effective marketing and promotion for the show. The Woman's Hour and Radio 4's Twitter profiles, for example, circulate clickbait links, while also offering some capacity for limited audience feedback. Emma Barnett too uses her 160K+ Twitter following to generate publicity, highlighting key moments in the show, which in turn constructs a faux personal connection with listeners that analogue radio cannot reproduce.
Jenkins too tells us that contemporary media producers increasingly depend upon audience connectivity to distribute products via the online networks of end users. Some fans of LNWH certainly use digital technology to help expand LNWH's circulation by, for example, advertising links to set text episodes using the show generated hashtags (#latenightwomanshour) and by retweeting producer-led clickbait links.
Refers to the distribution of professional media products through the use of audience based social networks.
Media terminology used
The use of social media hashtags by media producers to channel audience engagement. Hashtags allow audiences to interact and spread media ideas. They are also used by media producers to monitor whether audiences are responding positively or negatively to products.
When audiences speak back to producers through online commentary or social media. Shirky tells us that contemporary audiences expect to be able to feedback - producers who don't facilitate audience based two-way conversations won't survive.
