Vampire Frenzy and Social Media
Many are mistaken that the present generation’s interest – or more aptly, fascination – with these (mythical? fictional?) blood sucking creatures stemmed from the success of the Twilight saga penned by Stephenie Meyer. We beg to disagree. People have been fascinated with these ‘immortal’, beautiful creatures as far back as the late 1800s with Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. Although without a doubt, a renewed interest thereon was really brought about by the success of Meyer’s fiction work showcasing the life and love of Edward Cullen and Isabella Swan. Since its success, thousands of vampire fiction both in pop and contemporary literature have followed suit, and surprisingly gained phenomenal success. It has now crossed over to movies and television, with a number of tv series successfully making it among the top listers in prime time. Expectedly, vampire enthusiasts now populate social media and exhibit a show of force to fully support their favorite novels, movies or tv shows depicting the “lives” of these “undead”.
