Media information, November 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Digital media in research, praxis, and education
- Research: Fashionoffice has been founded on the basis of a research project about fashion on the internet in 1995. Until today, Fashionoffice as a fashion magazine is used to test hypotheses on internet-communication. ‘Timeline’ and ‘memory’ are keywords that have been in the center of Fashionoffice.org-studies on human experience of reality and public opinion during the last five years. Now, the summary of the study on ‘Memorized Data’ will be published in the Annual Multimedia 2011 (release date 7 December 2010).
- Praxis: To finance the organisation’s scientific work, the independent and non-governmental magazine Fashionoffice offers advertising in the most common formats which are delivered by internationally trusted partners like Doubleclick, Google Adplanner and Adwords. Additionally, Fashionoffice provides statistical data by Quantcast and Google Analytics to enable marketers making their media plan decisions.
- Education: In early 2010 after the last tests on the ‘Memorized Data’-hypothesis, Fashionoffice has installed the educational program ‘Online-Media Academy’ to make the results on communication online public to an audience that is interested to use the knowledge in their daily praxis in publishing, advertising, marketing, and social media.
‘With Factor X to Reality’ is the title of the Fashionoffice article about digital marketing/publishing in the Annual Multimedia 2011, release date 7 December 2010
On invitation of the publishers of the Annual Multimedia 2011, Fashionoffice has summarized the studies on un-progressive data online and their influences on the perception of reality.
In the last 15 years, Fashionoffice has continuously done scientific research on the reception and presentation of fashion online: from the FashionAvigator-study in 1995 to the ‘Memorized Data’-hypothesis in 2009 and the monthly collection of data from the user statistics. The ‘Memorized Data’-hypothesis was proved by statistical data which verified the assumption that publishers and advertisers have to calculate the impact of editorial content as well as online-campaigns with a new factor: un-progressive data. The article describes the research project from the beginning in 2006 until the last tests in early 2010. On 7 December 2010, the Annual Multimedia 2011 (Walhalla Fachverlag, Berlin) will be released.
“The ones, who are interested in the construction of reality and opinion building in the era of the internet, will get interesting new perspectives on our 'digital' world. The research project has been realized on all URLs and data sources that are constantly online since 1996 and which are enriched daily with new content; this is really an exceptional and rare object for such a longitudinal analysis. Probably the article will wind up some folks because 'Memorized Data' can have positive and negative effects on publishers and advertisers.” Dr. Karin Sawetz, Fashionoffice.org.

News and opinion building in an interactive real-time media-democracy!?
The democratic society is navigating with autodidactic neo-journalists to new media domains where social media journalists and big business are interacting – sometimes without knowing who the communicators are in real.
Web 2.0, blogs, social media are phenomena of a digital connected and interactive real-time media reality, which became alive at the same time as users questioned the production of news and opinion building by journalists. Journalists use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the technology of blogs; and blogger publish as quasi-journalists and report from their very personal point of view. To identify the communicator as a blogger, social media expert or journalist is for users in the most cases not relevant - and even not possible. Opinion will be made up in all cases and is distributed with digitally high-speed. Caused by the growing interest on social media, its consequences on new power-structures and transparency of the communication-business between sender and recipient, which are constantly changing their roles, the Online-Media Academy introduces the new lecture ‚Social Media Expert’. Details are published on the learning platform of the Online-Media Academy Styleprofiler.com.
