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

The Media could be added as a seventh force as it would complement the Porter model of 5 forces. 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.

Media in 5 Forces of Porter

Indeed the media are having a lot of influence. But when they influence all forces, the net effect might be zero.

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 campaigns and even get the likes of Facebook to favor them and work against competitors. This happens even in traditional news media, but the manipulative and damaging potential of social media is much larger.
