MTV’s “Savage County – Demand It” Campaign — Learn Social Media By Example

It seems that MTV is catching a ride on the social media bandwagon that corporate siblings such as Paramount had with “Paranormal Activity” as it experiments with new distribution and marketing methods in the digital age.

In order to achieve this, MTV has teamed up with digital information service and marketer, Eventful, to launch a social media campaign for its forthcoming indie slasher film “Savage County”, which it originally had planned to release as a Web series.

From the movie: Savage County

Digg Users Declare “Quit Digg” Day!

The 30th of August, 2010, might be a day to remember for years to come: The day that Digg pays its dues and is sentenced to obsolescence for its repetitive crimes against its loyal users. Finally, it seems that the time has come for Kevin Rose and his crew to evacuate the premises, maybe come back again with a different social media tool or just disappear off of the face of the earth!

This is based on Read Write Web’s announcement yesterday: “Reddit has taken over the front page of Digg…. Not only did Digg’s users declare today “quit Digg day,” but in order to protest Digg’s new auto-submission system, users are now upvoting every Reddit story on the site. These stories are being submitted to Digg by Reddit itself through the new auto-submission system that is a core part of Digg v4“.
