Social TV is buzzing in the US, but what is it and what does it mean for the UK? One of the more social uses of TV in the UK many years ago were basic multiplayer interactive TV games like those offered by PlayJam that allowed a few people to participate at the same time or on different devices like those offered by gameplay. Sms to the TV screen and formats like Idol which have increased the level of audience participation and influence over the years continues to gain momentum. News programmes using video captured on mobile phones enabled citizens to participate in journalism and has become an accepted practice. Overlays of sms interaction like AQA’s Mr. Know it All on MTV became common amongst channels targeting younger audiences.
