Column: Netflix needs to reassess its key audience — college students

"Following years of success and growth, Netflix lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of the year. This downward trend threatens to persist if Netflix does not adapt specifically towards younger customers, who crave television and film not only for its intrinsic entertainment but also to participate in a conversation around what they’re watching."
