OTW has pointed out something interesting: Fandoms are a lot more international than anything else. :)

Writer Shawna Benson examined patterns of fandom growth and activity that she'd observed while moderating social media for The 100's Writers’ Room, as well as social media lessons learned. "Yes, we sell the US shows to other countries, but what do we do to accommodate those fanbases which spring up in other countries? Suddenly, the 'official' accounts feel less useful. They don’t get the CW in the UK, Australia, Brazil, France or Spain, or even Canada — the main countries which outside of the U.S. watch The 100. How do we accommodate those fans? The official accounts are restricted in this. Guess what? Writers’ rooms are not."

Yes, fandom is international & that means sharing with everyone & finding ways to overcome confusion.

Unless I'm very mistaken, "The 100" is a TV series that is currently on air for its second season, and it's about... Hm... There was a war (?) on Earth, leaving everything contaminated with radiation and what's left of mankind is living in orbital space-stations, trying to survive. What most of the population don't know is that those stations are at their limit and close to falling apart, so they send teenagers down to test whether or not the Earth is anywhere close to being habitable again.

Of course there is A LOT of teenage drama mixed into all the science fiction and conspiracy. I watched three episodes and then gave up on it. I'm surprised it wasn't canceled...
