Have Things Changed for Good? Rebooting the Content Market
The time a user spends online consuming content has grown to an average of 45 minutes. Those are huge numbers. It continues to grow despite seasonality. <...> Everyone loves video. And massive growth was demonstrated by short vertical videos. If you compare it with the last year it is like a fairy-tale. The growth is 2.5 times, but not only in watching, but most importantly in the creation of content

Have Things Changed for Good? Rebooting the Content Market
We realized that the future really lies in multi-formats. At the time, we did not have the technology. Now we have created it. And we are talking about it for the first time.

Digital Ethics and Traditional Values in the Global Entertainment and Media Industry: Digital Psychology in the Context of a New Media Ethic
It’s still up to the user what content they consume. Because if we limit it, if we introduce some regulatory stories, then shadow platforms will appear, and we won’t know what the younger generation, the adult generation, is living on. That is why I support it: a balance between rules, norms, ethics is important. Just like it is in the offline world

Digital Ethics and Traditional Values in the Global Entertainment and Media Industry: Digital Psychology in the Context of a New Media Ethic
We must pay attention to generation Z, the younger generation. They’re already living in a virtual universe. We were just talking about how there is no separation, no boundaries between online and offline, how they can’t imagine themselves outside of it, and it’s true.
