need-to-know takeaways from VidCon 2019″,”content”:{“rendered”:”

VidCon, the annual summit in Anaheim, CA for social media stars and their fans to meet each other drew over 75,000 attendees over last week and this past weekend. A small subset of those where entertainment and tech executives convening to share best practices and strike deals.n

Of the wide range of topics discussed in the industry-only sessions and casual conversation, five trends stuck out to me as takeaways for Extra Crunch members: the prominence of TikTok, the strong presence of Chinese tech companies in general, the contemplation of deep fakes, curiosity around virtual influencers, and the widespread interest in developing consumer product startups around top content creators.n

TikTok, the Chinese social video app (owned by Bytedance) that exploded onto the US market this past year, was the biggest conversation topic. Executives and talent managers were curious to see where it will go over the next year more than they were convinced that it is changing the industry in any fundamental way.n

TikTok influencers were a major presence on the stages and taking selfies with fans on the conference floor. I overheard tweens saying u201cthere are so many TikTokers hereu201d throughout the conference. Meanwhile, TikToku2019s US GM Vanessa Pappas held a session where she argued the appu2019s focus on building community among people who donu2019t already know each other (rather than being centered on your existing friendships) is a fundamental differentiator.n

Kathleen Grace, CEO of production company New Form, noted that Tik Toku2019s emphasis on visuals and music instead of spoken or written word makes it distinctly democratic in convening users across countries on equal footing.n

Esports was also a big presence across the conference floor with teens lined up to compete at numerous simultaneous competitions. Twitchu2019s Mike Aragon and Jana Werner outlined Twitchu2019s expansion in content verticals adjacent to gaming like anime, sports, news, and u201ccreative contentu2019 as the first chapter in expanding the format of interactive live-streams across all verticals. They also emphasized the diversity of revenue streams Twitch enables creators to leverage: ads, tipping, monthly patronage, Twitch Prime, and Bounty Board (which connects brands and live streamers).n

About admin

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
