Although the findings of this study were not unexpected, they highlight the reality that promoting your art in this day and age requires more than simply focusing on the art itself. In this regard, social media is one of the most powerful mediums for promoting arts, such as movies. As a result, a good movie may receive more attention than a great movie simply because the first one was promoted better on social media or users made it viral. In this case, FOMO may push people to see a movie since everyone is talking about it.
This has both advantages and disadvantages. Some may argue that art quality, in this case, the movie, is more significant than virality because some artists may be tempted to create their art based on aspects that are more likely to become popular on social media. On the other hand, some advocates feel they can introduce their art to more people through social media and that more people would enjoy their art.
We should also consider the perspectives of users. For example, many people may seek movies on social media and regard them as valuable sources of movie information. In addition, they may participate in a community with others who share their interest in movies by reading reviews or discussing movies. So, it might be a topic to think about.
