HGTV's Floundering Crisis Response for Flag Folly | Crisis Management

HGTV's Floundering Crisis Response for Flag Folly | Crisis Management | Communication | Scoop.it

We never seem to run dry examples of easily preventable crises. Last week, an article on Home and Garden TV’s website discussing Fourth of July table settings suggested that an American flag be used as a “bright and festive table runner.” Whoops…

 

As you probably guessed, flocks of military vets and their families, along citizens from just about every walk of life, descended on HGTV’s social media sites to rip the network a new one for its misuse of the flag.

 

To HGTV’s credit, it quickly deleted the article and posted an apology, but to its detriment the apology was a weak one....

Goodbye Essay, Hello Podcast | Dialogue

Goodbye Essay, Hello Podcast | Dialogue | Communication | Scoop.it

One of the greatest conflicts between new and old literacies is many educators’ continuing belief that students’ analytical skills are not properly developed through the use of new media. There is some justification for this: Many student-created new media works are simplistic mishmashes of audio and video clips with no thesis or rationale. New media is used more as a toy than as an educational tool. It is no wonder that many teachers, uncomfortable with new media to begin with, see it as harming student literacy.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 16, 2013 4:29 PM

There are things I really like about this article, and some that I don't.


I love that the focus of the article is on share stories your customers care about and that connect to universal truths (i.e. transformation), altruistic desires (i.e doing good), or fundamental longings (i.e. connection).


I like the examples of how brands are engaging customers using different methods and through gamification. I like the advice to take actions that your customers can share stories about. And I like that they focus on engagement being an experience of co-created play.


These are all dynamics inherent in storytelling. Yet this is what I don't like: the article is less about storytelling and more about creating a presence. You can argue that storytelling creates a presence and I agree. But the author focuses mostly on ads and customer engagement that is only a slice of business storytelling. And the article just goes to show that despite some of the solid notions here, the author is jumping on the storytelling bandwagon using words 'story' and 'storytelling' but without any accuracy or understanding what those words really mean.


OK -- I'll get off my soap box :)


Do read the article and watch the videos -- good points are made!
