Top 30 Media Trends in February

From Smartphone TV Programs to Crowdsourced Journalism Apps

— February 27, 2016 — Pop Culture
The top February 2016 media ideas have a lot of fun infusing elements of pop culture into the real world. The best examples of this include Harry Potter-inspired dinners being hosted to give guests the full Hogwarts experience, or the Vogue February magazine that has Ben Stiller posing as his character from Zoolander 2.

As tributes to the late David Bowie, Veja created 12 different magazine covers inspired by the star. In a more dramatic gesture, a Belgian observatory dedicated an entire lightning bolt-shaped star cluster to the music legend.

Some of the most intriguing new media platforms to watch out for include YouTuber PewDiePie's Revelmode and the newly rebranded Freeform network, which was previously known as Disney's ABC Family.
