The Dilution of Choice

What attracts you more – an image in a magazine or a 400-word text advertisement? Do you prefer short blog posts or longer ones? Do you watch short movies on YouTube, or longer? Do you prefer a one-sheet menu or a multi-page one at a restaurant? At a bar, is your preference for 100 bottles […]The Dilution of Choice originally appeared on Danny Brown – Social Media Marketing and Influence Marketing Blog – all rights reserved.        Related StoriesThe Little Boy That Could (Or Why We Need to Make What We Do Brilliant Every Time)Is ‘Mental’ Health a Misnomer?

The Value and Meaning of Community In Marketing

This is a guest post from Tinu Abayomi-Paul. When you hear the word “community”, even in the present context of social media and marketing, what comes to your mind? Do you see faces of people you know, admire? People with common interests that you share? Or do you see nothing? Perhaps a faceless blob of […]The Value and Meaning of Community In Marketing originally appeared on Danny Brown – Social Media Marketing and Influence Marketing Blog – all rights reserved.        Related StoriesIs ‘Mental’ Health a Misnomer?

The Problem With Making Grandiose Statements

There’s a popular method of content creation, centred around making grandiose statements. These statements, and the blog posts around them, can range from the usual war cries of being more human in business, to posts on transparency and authenticity on the web, to how an “industry” – for want of a better term – like […]The Problem With Making Grandiose Statements originally appeared on Danny Brown – Social Media Marketing and Influence Marketing Blog – all rights reserved.

This is your chance to ask Mark Zuckerberg anything

Mark Zuckerberg is prepared to take your questions

The massively wealthy, Mandarin-speaking Facebook founder will be hosting the social network’s first public Q&A next Thursday on Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET)

You can already submit questions to Zuck by commenting on his announcement post. If you’re too shy to ask something yourself, there’s the option to “vote” for what questions get answered by liking comments.

The Q&A will last an hour, but considering there are already almost 5,000 comments on the post, there’s no way he’ll get to them all. Read more…

Warning: the following article contains content that may be considered not safe for work.

People love Chelsea Handler‘s outrageously crude and crass brand of humor — unless those people work at Instagram.

On Thursday night, Handler posted a picture of herself on her Instagram page mocking Russian president and bear-hating, horseback riding outdoorsman Vladimir Putin. Authentic to the original picture of Putin, Handler appeared completely topless.

Soon after Handler posted the racy picture, Instagram quickly removed it from her page, as per their community guidelines. Toplessness, at least for women, is against the rules on the social media network. Read more…

Channel your inner spook for our Halloween Vine challenge

In the eerie spirit of Halloween, we brought on a true mastermind of spooky art, Jennifer Messmore, to guest-host our Vine challenge.

We want to see moving candles, spine-chilling spirits, terrifying tales and other unsettling scenarios in your videos. Act out classic horror films or animate something like the Ghoulies in stop-motion. Shoot in darkness and show us flashes of red and orange. The scarier, the better.

Messmore, a Las Vegas native, is an artist of all trades. In her spare time she paints, draws, makes jewelry, refurbishes dolls and, of course, creates Vines.

She owes her “Vine addiction” to her sister (Big Red on Vine), who has been active on the platform since its early days. “What interested me most about Vine initially was the six-second loop,” Messmore said. “Eventually I fell in love with the community. I’m overwhelmed by the incredibly talented, creative, and amazingly kind people I’ve met there.” Read more…
