Main Challenges Tracking Risks and Opportunities 

Narratives impact every part of a business. They compel communities to take action online and in-person, generating opportunities and risks for strategy, personnel, and assets. However, community engagement in narratives is fast moving, dynamic, and happening in difficult to analyze mediums.

‍ Today, content creators prefer video and audio over text platforms because these platforms are better at engaging audiences. Also, content creators now use multiple platforms to push different types of content, avoid moderation, and engage with their audiences in different ways. So, simultaneous access to multiple video and audio platforms - such as YouTube, BitChute, and Podcasts - and the ability to analyze content across them are now required to be able to effectively track and analyze community engagement with narratives. Also, each platform is designed to empower its tens of millions of users to easily build communities, distribute content, and drive narratives. ‍

This means that the narratives that affect your company are spreading in many directions at once, and the threats and opportunities contained within them can come from anywhere at any time.
