Today Australian television program “Sunrise” leveraged social media and crowd sourcing to program it’s show this morning.

The program asked followers via Twitter and Facebook in order to determine which issues would appear on the shows later segments.

This use of custom content creation is a great move for the highly competitive market as it allws the show to present content that the viewers are interested in, whilst also making them feel like a valued part of the show.

There are literally a use for this for every small business.
