남자 친구와 디즈니 VS 친구와 디즈니~ / 남자 친구와 제트코스터 VS 친구와 제트코스터~

솔직히 Vine이 등장 할 때만해도 6초짜리 동영상이 무슨 일을 할 수 있을까 싶었다.
영상을 제작하는 입장에서 보면 뭔가 메세지를 전달하기에는 6초는 지나치게 짧았고 뭔가를 연출하기에도 제약이 심해 보였다.
그저 그런 일상이나 찍어 올리거나 하겠군… 그게 다였다.

그러다 이 친구… 오오제키 레이카(大関澪花)가 일본에서 인기를 끌고 있다는 기사를 보게 되었고 이 친구의 트위터와 Vine에서 Vine의 성공… 그런걸 넘어 영상의 길이와 연출, 혹은 메세지는 크게 관계가 없다는 걸 깨닫는다.(덧붙여 내 머리가 얼마나 굳어져 있었는지도 실감하게 된다….)

오오제키 레이나는 평범한 도립고교생으로 학교도 그저 그렇고 성적도 그저 그런 아주 평범한 여고생이다.
작년 12월 시험기간에 빈둥거리다가 트위터에 친구가 업로드한 동영상이 재미있어보여서 집에서 혼자 아이폰으로 “파이팅 있게(部屋で1人でiPhoneで、ノリと勢いだけ) 촬영한게 전부 라고 한다.

평소 학교에서 쉬는 시간에 놀던것을 집에서 촬영해서 업로드 한다는데… 일본어를 알면 더 좋겠지만 잘 몰라도 분위기 만으로 압도하는 파이팅을 보여준다..ㅋㅋ
덕분에 트위터 팔로워는 20만명쯤 되고 일본의 미디어에서도 다룰 정도가 되버렸다.

(Vine의 매력은) 보면 알수 있잖습니까?! 보지 않으면 전해지지 않지요. 6초동안의 영상을 보면 자기도 하고 싶고 부담도 없고 짧은 시간에도 의외로 할 수 있는 것들이 많습니다.

특별히 목표도 없지만 세계 사람들을 웃는 얼굴로 즐겁게 하고 싶을뿐, 앞으로도 마이페이스로 계속하고 싶습니다.

17살짜리 JK의 힘은 방구석에서 찍은 6초짜리 영상으로도 느껴진다…

이 친구 덕분에 몇년만에 트위터를 다시 시작했다. Vine도 함깨…

「このJK、おもしろすぎる」――ループ動画サービス「Vine」で大げさな表情とコミカルな動きで数秒の「あるある」ネタを披露する女子高生が話題を呼んだのは昨年12月半ばのことだった。日本だけでなく世界中に一気に拡散し、反響の大きいものは4万回以上もツイートされることも。一躍人気者になった彼女のTwitterのフォロワーは16万人を超えた。

高校2年生の大関さんがVineに投稿を始めたのは昨年12月の初めのこと。きっかけは「テスト期間中、あまりに暇だったから」。Twitterのタイムラインに流れてきた同世代のユーザーの動画を見て興味を持ったという。これまで特に他の動画サービスに投稿していたわけでもなく「部屋で1人でiPhoneで、ノリと勢いだけ」でスタートした。

あっという間に世界中から注目を浴びるようになった現状を、「普段、休み時間に教室でやってるようなことを切り取っただけですけどね、まさかこんなにウケるなんて」とあっけらかんと笑う。彼氏の前と友達の前での女子の態度の違い、「雪の日」「宿題」などを題材にした小学生・中学生・高校生のリアクションの違いなど、誰もが「あるある」「わかる」と思える日常のシーンを切り取っているシリーズが好評だ。ネタは普段からストックしているわけではなく、撮ると決めた時に勢いにまかせてまとめて数個作成するという。

Truth has never been an essential ingredient of viral content on the Internet. But in the stepped-up competition for readers, digital news sites are increasingly blurring the line between fact and fiction, and saying that it is all part of doing business in the rough-and-tumble world of online journalism.

Several recent stories rocketing around the web, picking up millions of views, turned out to be fake or embellished: a Twitter tale of a Thanksgiving feud on a plane, later described by the writer as a short story; a child’s letter to Santa that detailed an Amazon.com link in crayon, but was actually written by a grown-up comedian in 2011; and an essay on poverty that prompted $60,000 in donations until it was revealed by its author to be impressionistic rather than strictly factual.

Their creators describe them essentially as online performance art, never intended to be taken as fact. But to the media outlets that published them, they represented the lightning-in-a-bottle brew of emotion and entertainment that attracts readers and brings in lucrative advertising dollars.

When the tales turned out to be phony, the modest hand-wringing that ensued was accompanied by an admission that viral trumps verified — and that little will be done about it as long as the clicks keep coming. “You are seeing news organizations say, ‘If it is happening on the Internet that’s our beat,’ ” said Joshua Benton, director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard. “The next step of figuring out whether it happened in real life is up to someone else.”

The difference seems to be that the news organizations that published the recent pieces — Gawker, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post and Mashable among them — do not see invented viral tales as being completely at odds with the serious new content they publish alongside them. The Huffington Post won a Pulitzer Prize in 2012, Gawker was among the first to report the cocaine use by Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, and BuzzFeed is building teams of investigative and foreign correspondents. Of course, websites like these are not the only news organizations to be seduced by stories that are too good to be true. In just the last month, CBS’s venerable “60 Minutes” had to apologize for taking too credulously the claims of a security agent about the 2012 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Instead, editors at these sites acknowledge frankly that there are trade-offs in balancing authenticity with the need to act quickly in a hyperconnected age. “We are dealing with a volume of information that it is impossible to have the strict standards of accuracy that other institutions have,” said John Cook, editor in chief of Gawker, which highlighted the essay on poverty, by a woman named Linda Tirado.

“The faster metabolism puts people who fact-check at a disadvantage,” said Ryan Grim, the Washington bureau chief for The Huffington Post, which reposted the fictional airplane tweets, the letter to Santa and the poverty essay. “If you throw something up without fact-checking it, and you’re the first one to put it up, and you get millions and millions of views, and later it’s proved false, you still got those views. That’s a problem. The incentives are all wrong.”

But Mr. Cook says he thinks that readers can tell which content is serious and which is taken from the web without vetting. “We assume a certain level of sophistication and skepticism of our readers,” he said.

Elan Gale, 30, a television producer and the author of the invented article on the feud on the plane, is not convinced. His fictitious Twitter tale of exchanging increasingly hostile notes with a fellow passenger spread rapidly — a compilation of his posts got 5.6 million views. BuzzFeed sensed the tremor in the web and posted it, attracting nearly 1.5 million views to its site. (The New York Times travel section blog also linked to their story but labeled it as imaginary when it was discovered to be untrue.) Finally, Mr. Gale revealed that the entire exchange was fake, and BuzzFeed posted an update describing the story as a lie and a hoax.

“I really have an issue with the word hoax,” said Mr. Gale, who says nobody called him to verify his story. “I was broadcasting to my followers who know what I do. It’s the people who reported it who are deceiving their audience.”

BuzzFeed counters that Mr. Gale stoked the flames when his posts came to wider notice, instead of debunking the reports, and that a BuzzFeed reporter had tried to contact him on Twitter.

BuzzFeed, like some other sites, relied on updates and news stories to correct its previous reporting on the Mr. Gale’s story. (Its follow-up story drew more than 400,000 views.) But the site must continue to cover the frantic conversation of social media, said Lisa Tozzi, the news director at BuzzFeed and a former Times editor. This is because it “is where our readers are living,” she said. “Our readers are seeing all of this stuff and I feel like there’s an expectation that we are reporting on the culture they’re living in.”

Mr. Benton of the Nieman Lab put it another way. “This is journalism as an act of pointing — ‘Look over here, this is interesting,’ ” he said. He says uncertainty about a story’s veracity is unlikely, in most cases, to keep an editor from posting it. “I think BuzzFeed is probably a little bummed they are being called out, but they are not going to start asking for three sources,” he said.

It is unclear how much readers care whether a fascinating story is true or not, at least in terms of clicking on it. Melanie C. Green, a social psychologist at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, said that while people told her they cared deeply, their emotional responses remain the same either way. “It’s the same as movies or books,” she said. “We want to see something new, maybe escape our lives.”

Most embellished stories have little real-world consequence, but not all. People donated $60,000 to Ms. Tirado, based on her vivid description of a life of poverty, until she closed off donations (Gawker also suggested people stop giving her money.)

In an email conversation last week, Ms. Tirado directed a reporter to seek her public assistance records and said that she thought people were “using this as an opportunity to avoid talking about the issues.” She expressed no intention to return the money.

Zach Poitras, a Brooklyn comedy writer who wrote the Santa letter two years ago, said he felt he had been unfairly labeled a hoaxer. “I am not into pranking people,” he said.

He and friends began calling some of the websites that carried the Santa letter as soon as they saw it online. “The real hoax,” he said, is that some journalistic websites can be lazy.

“No one called me,” he said. “They waited for the facts to come to them to correct.”
