Woah. This is cool.
But what is the Fascination Award? Here’s what they say:
In order to be fascinating, content can’t just be useful, valuable, entertaining, educational, or interesting. These are all great traits to have but fascinating content is a mixture of these things and much more.
Fascinating content is best quantified by the physical and emotional reaction that it instills in its audience rather than particular traits of the content. Put simply, fascinating content:
- Inspires its audience.
- Creates conversation around the topic.
- Creates a strong emotional reaction (positive or negative)
- Gets shared both online and off.
- Contain genuinely fascinating content
