Analysts say DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc's strategy for 'Dragon' failed, underscoring how Hollywood, which spends over $4 billion a year promoting movies, is under pressure to cut costs and experiment -- and stumbling occasionally.

Internet trends: marketing research & predictions
Social media conversations can reflect peoples’ attitudes, needs, desires and intentions. The challenge is to listen wisely and use market research skills to “ask” the right questions. When you wish to follow perceptions and intents keep in mind that you will need to follow day to day jargon, and that the conversations traced are typical to the specific social network you are searching at. Currently, I find that there is no tool as Twitter to extract such knowledge and map real time reflection of peoples minds. While conducting many social media research projects, I have collected some insightful search ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
