It's a new year, and with it comes a new opportunity to take a look at the upcoming year. For Media Monday, 2023 promises to bring a mix of nostalgia and modern technology, as we plan to take a look at the world of spam calls, as well as classic commercials from our VHS collections. In this blog post, we'll look at the world of spam calls, the resurgence of classic commercials, and how nostalgia comes into play in our media consumption.
Spam calls have become an all too common occurrence in modern life. A recent survey showed that a whopping 90% of people had received at least one spam call in the past week. These calls are more than just an annoyance, as they often come with malicious intent, such as attempting to steal personal information. We'll look at the latest trends in spam calls and how to protect yourself from them.
It's no secret that technology has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, but there's still a special place in our hearts for the classic commercials of our past. From the classic "I Love You, Man" to the iconic "Where's the Beef?", these commercials have become a part of our culture. We'll look at the nostalgic power of these commercials and how they still capture our attention today.
Nostalgia in Media Consumption
Nostalgia is a powerful emotion, and it can have a profound impact on how we consume media. We'll look at how nostalgia has impacted the world of media and how it can affect our viewing habits. We'll also explore how nostalgia can be used to our advantage when it comes to media consumption.
As we look forward to the media of 2023, it's important to keep in mind the impact of nostalgia. From spam calls to classic commercials, we have a lot to look forward to this year. By understanding the power of nostalgia and how it can influence our media consumption, we can make the most of the media of 2023.
