Fandom in the Digital Era

I think the reason that fanfiction has remained so popular over the years, despite changes in technology and lawsuits by powerful corporations, is because the fans are inspired by devotion to something that they love. Real fans not motivated by money, like the companies that own the rights to the characters and their universes, which makes them more dedicated to topics. They find people from all over the world who have similar interests and create fanfiction websites and fan-made movies and attend comic-cons. Another thing that sets pop culture fans apart is that follow topics that are made-up. While some hobbies, like professional football, can be shown in real time to thousands of fans, these fans are inspired by figures, like Harry Potter or Spock, that don’t actually exist. This is why they want to make their own stories. Because the best way to expand the universes of fictional characters is make increase their fiction.” I think the reason that fanfiction has remained so popular over the years, despite changes in technology and lawsuits by powerful corporations, is because the fans are inspired by devotion to something that they love.
