Implications on traditional advertisingMinimizing use
Traditional advertising techniques include print and television advertising. TheInternet had already overtaken television as the largest advertising market.Websites often include banner or pop-
up ads. Social networking sites don‘t always
have ads. In exchange, products have entire pages and are able to interact withusers. Television commercials often end with a spokesperson asking viewers tocheck out the product website for more information. Print ads are also starting toinclude barcodes on them. These barcodes can be scanned by cell phones andcomputers, sending viewers to the product website. Advertising is beginning tomove viewers from the traditional outlets to the electronic ones.
Internet and social networking leaks are one of the issues facing traditionaladvertising. Video and print ads are often leaked to the world via the Internetearlier than they are scheduled to premiere. Social networking sites allow thoseleaks to go viral, and be seen by many users more quickly. Time difference is alsoa problem facing traditional advertisers. When social events occur and are broadcast on television, there is often a time delay between airings on the eastcoast and west coast of the United States. Social networking sites have become ahub of comment and interaction concerning the event. This allows individualswatching the event on the west coast (time-delayed) to know the outcome before itairs.
