Facebook is the devil

2 Comments Life, Ramblings, Social Media
When Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook he declared "The thing that we are trying to do at Facebook, is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently".

Facebook in my opinion has simply become a forum for insecure individuals to exclaim how much they think their lives are better than the next guy, and that's it really. Now let me clear my stance a little here. I was an early adopter on Facebook Read more [...]

New Facebook Timeline

1 Comment Social Media, Websites

Most of Facebook's latest updates i've absolutely hated with a passion - but Timeline is quite simply something else. It's revolutionary and has seemlessly provided a much richer social experience. I personally get the feeling that Timeline is what Facebook was always meant to be from the begining. The Timeline itself is all about documenting your life online and once it rolls out to everyone (12th Read more [...]

Today saw the launch of the Animal Friends £1Million Challenge and some rather cool Facebook apps. I'm pretty excited about this as it's been a project i've been involved with for about 6 months in the making. To start with we developed two new plasticine characters, to fit within the brand style, we named them Cracker and Girlie.

Googles +1 is set to answer Facebooks “like” button

No Comments SEO, Social Media, Websites
Google is making a big new push into social with a feature called Google “+1” that is similar in purpose to the Facebook “Like” button, but integrated directly into the world’s biggest search engine. Starting Wednesday 30th March, users who opt into the +1 button experiment (and soon everyone else) in Google Labs will start seeing a +1 icon next to each link in Google search results, pretty neat huh?. Note this is only available to users. Google defines this action as a Read more [...]

The TippExperience

No Comments Funny, Social Media, Videos, Websites
I like all things viral and this is really clever so gets a thumbs up from me! 😀 TippEx...who would've thought that they could gain a captured audience on YouTube, but as always the power of social media and a well thought out online marketing strategy delivers results. Using some clever flash and custom URL TippEx created the TippExperience which is a video of a hunter trying to shoot a bear but doesn't want to and uses a TippEx mouse roller to erase the word 'Shoot' and enable the user to Read more [...]

You may have recently heard some hype about the re-birth of the Old Spice adverts with a rather dashing man promoting the Old Spice in a more masculine manner than ever. You may remember the cheese of the Old Spice commercials back in the 70's with crashing waves and a dodgy sound track taken straight out of some Hollywood B-movie. Well the marketing guys at Old Spice have decided to re-launch the brand with a series of social media commercials whilst doing the decent thing - laugh at themselves. There Read more [...]
