MEDIA as the 7th Force in Porter's Five Forces

If media is added it would complement the Porter model of forces, as the media today have become an inevitably interwoven phenomenon in our personal and organizational lives. Also it is a primary instrument to catalyze the other forces.

Especially Social Media are a Force

The politically correct view is that, since social media gives voice to individual consumers, businesses must cater to these individuals, respond to their concerns, reward their compliments.The practical reality is that large advertisers can organize smear campaings and even get the likes of Facebook to favor them and work against competitors. It happens even with the traditional news media, but the manipulative and damaging potential of social media is much more.
