Do you agree? On the night of the storm,  the news media, the government, politicians, neighbors and friends used Facebook and Twitter and mobile alerts to send helpful hints on how to deal with the crisis.  False information and photos did run a bit rampant (the New York Stock Exchange flooding) but it was quashed quickly on social media, […]

Our son chose John Cena as his story book hero for his anti-bullying efforts

October 22, 2012

Last Friday, our ten-year old son dressed up as John Cena in the local elementary school’s story book parade. The teachers asked each child to dress up like a hero from his or her favorite book and carry the book in the school’s annual costume parade. From the photo above, you can see that our son proudly carried  “the Ultimate Guide to WWE”. Like the Velveteen Rabbit, you can tell this book is truly loved from its ragged ear edges. Our Son has read the book from cover to cover millions of times memorizing the fun details about his favorite stars. […]

August 28, 2012

Today we read an interesting blog in PR Daily by Alan Pearcy about the potential death of Television.  “According to this infographic from AccreditedOnlineColleges.com, one-third of Americans watch videos online every day, accounting for an average of 28.3 hours a month of viewing on the Web.

Mashable reported a very insightful study this past week in the article “Sorry Marketers Your doing Twitter Wrong…”  starting “the Twitter Research” wars (click on the link to download the study) just like the Facebook Research wars of a few weeks ago when studies found completely difference results on the viability of “the Godfather” of Social Media.

So not only did Facebook have a disastrous public offering but Reueters & Ipsos then announced a study that “4 out of 5 people claimed that they never purchased a product advertised on Facebook”.  Interestingly, we first saw the study announced on Twitter and then heard about it on CBS News Radio 88. Then, yesterday, ComScore released a study stating that advertising does work based upon the number of “likes” clicked (link below). However, we would love to see how these studies breaks by age and by sex. Since P&G still maintains a large presence on Facebook, we are willing to bet money […]

That is why teens will often stay up all night texting and investment bankers trade till the wee hours. In fact, “the London whale” moved the stock market the wrong way contributing to over a Billion loss that JP Morgan in some serious hot water last week. So does this make our smart phones and computers addictive–hell yea! Last week, we swore off emailing, texting and social media for a whole week. How sad was it […]
