The Truth behind Fans Economy: Emotion Becomes an Additional Value
Many people have realized that anyone who is a bit famous now will not confine himself/herself to his/her own profession, but they tend to cross the industry to earn fans’ money. Smartisan is very successful in the marketing of “feelings”; “Tiny Times" also advanced triumphantly and repeatedly enjoyed a great success at the box office amid doubts; before its release, “The Continent” already aroused fans’ great interest; even “Logic Show” that always advocates rationality is also doing the “True Love” moon cake business. Nowadays, fans economy is expanding in the market.
Similarly, “I must buy tickets to watch the movie “The Continent” three times, just because I don’t want to see it has a worse box office than “Tiny Times 3" —— Actually, when making this decision, they even probably didn’t know the real story of this film. They just wanted to win the competition, and then made a final decision.
Thus, we can see the social soil of fans economy: it is a solitary and hollow age when every individual is infinitely small. The world is so big that the distance between people is too far to reach, so even a slight relationship is so precious. There is no place to put our inmost emotion, so we have to pin our hope on the strange idol. It seems that we are becoming great when speaking very highly of the idol, and our value is realized too when helping the idol realize his/her dream. As a result, the really most valuable commodity is emotion. In the present era, we will not care about how much spent on the true emotion. Besides, don’t we have got a cell phone or a movie ticket?
