What Big Metadata Means for the Future of TV | Blogs | Red Bee Media | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
Richard Kirk blog post: TV Metadata is becoming increasingly rich and complex – powering increasingly advanced experiences.

 

At a basic level, metadata tells us which programmes are available, and informs us about the content of those programmes. But metadata is getting richer and even bigger to support more visually engaging and functionally sophisticated user experiences. Now - add into the mix all the other data sets that the viewer has exchanged for an improved connected experience. At this point, we’ve tipped over into “Big Data”.

Twitter tiptoes further into the media business

Twitter tiptoes further into the media business | digitalassetman | Scoop.it

We’ve made the argument before that Twitter is effectively a media entity, distributing news and entertainment and other content to millions of readers in real time — although unlike traditional media entities, Twitter does this with anyone’s content rather than content it creates in-house. So far, the company has shied away describing itself as a media company, or exercising much editorial control over what it distributes, but there are some tantalizing signs that it may be moving in that direction. Could Twitter become a media player in its own right?

Telling it like it is - Augmented Reality - how 'realistic' is it for marketers?

Telling it like it is - Augmented Reality - how 'realistic' is it for marketers? | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
The technology has been around for a while but it is only in the past couple of years that we have started to see augmented reality really come to the surface as a marketing innovation.

 

The big shift in recent years which has made the use of this technology possible is the penetration of smart phone usage. It is understanding the possibilities that open up when you have customers with mobiles in their hands, and apps available to download for very little cost, that might take some time to cement in our behaviour of engaging further with brands.

 

While there is a low adopter point for augmented reality at the moment, it does seems to be currently more in use in certain sectors including cars, eg VW, food eg Marmite and gaming eg PS Vita. The set up costs will obviously reduce if the volume of campaigns increases and as technology improves that is inevitable, but there still needs to be a shift in how the technology appeals and to how many people.

Delusional Units of Value or The Future of Money and Mobile Commerce [INFOGRAPHIC]

Delusional Units of Value or The Future of Money and Mobile Commerce [INFOGRAPHIC] | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
Mobile payment hasn’t become the de facto method of financial transactions just yet, but it is projected to overtake those archaic checkbooks and bank notes you’ve been lugging around.

 

Three types of mobile payments dominate the marketplace today: m-commerce (uses a mobile browser and online wallets), m-payments (uses mobile apps), and m-wallets (replaces your entire wallet). Furthermore, consumers can access several forms of transaction on their mobile devices, including scannable barcodes, mobile coupons and self-checkout.

Gamification is not, alone, a sustainable solution

Gamification is not, alone, a sustainable solution | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
Michael Wu from Lithium Technologies explains how to use human psychology to engage users...

 

Tech start-ups often look at ways to engage their users beyond just the use of their service or product -- and many have started looking at elements of gamification to get that next level of interaction from passionate users.

 

Vator has decided that this drive for a wide range of tech companies to fold in gaming elements would be the perfect topic for a master class series called Vator Spark. On Tuesday, May 1, Vator brought together these thought leaders in gamification with various VCs and entrepreneurs to share insight on how gamification can benefit any business when thoughtfully executed.

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines

Image Discovery Tools: The New Real-Time Photo Search Engines | digitalassetman | Scoop.it

Robin Good: As the gathering and discovery of news and stories leverages increasingly the adoption of technology tools that scan, search, find and monitor specific topics or geolocations in real-time, it seems only natural that a new breed of real-time photo/image search engines are beginning to appear.

 

From the article intro: "Thanks to services like Twitter and Instagram, and the global 'smartphone saturation' phenomenon, live reporting from big events has never been easier.

 

No longer do we have to rely on professionals delivering content and images from these events, we have our extended social networks doing this for us.


And, because so many of these updates get fired into the 'public' timeline, virtually any update from anywhere can be found and shared in a matter of seconds.

 

...

 

With the London Olympics on our doorstep, expect to see 'real-time photo curation' explode into popularity and we've got some tools to help you be at the forefront of this revolution."

 

Useful. Resorceful. 8/10

Do you Need Influence? Appinions

Do you Need Influence? Appinions | digitalassetman | Scoop.it

Event though influence seems to be on one of the burners for most brands and agencies, some are still tangling with the question, do I need influence to be part of my overall strategy? The easy answer is a simple “yes”, everyone can benefit from connecting with the influencers who matter to you. Now this is not to oversimplify, but once you step into the world, the rewards are evident.

 

The fuller answer is more complex, and every brand needs to fully understand why influence exists and most importantly, why does it matter especially from a consumer perspective. It is the most direct link to your audience that exists on the web. Whereas you can spend all day tweeting, there is little guarantee that your audience will find your tweets, listen and eventually act. Influence connects you and lets those who are trusted speak on your behalf to your audience.

A Personal Data Stock Exchange? - semanticweb.com

A Personal Data Stock Exchange? - semanticweb.com | digitalassetman | Scoop.it
Jessica Leber of Technology Review recently reported on the controversial idea of a stock exchange for personal data.

 

She writes, “Here’s a job title made for the information age: personal data broker. Today, people have no choice but to give away their personal information—sometimes in exchange for free networking on Twitter or searching on Google, but other times to third-party data-aggregation firms without realizing it at all. ‘There’s an immense amount of value in data about people,’ says Bernardo Huberman, senior fellow at HP Labs. ‘That data is being collected all the time. Anytime you turn on your computer, anytime you buy something.’ Huberman, who directs HP Labs’ Social Computing Research Group, has come up with an alternative—a marketplace for personal information—that would give individuals control of and compensation for the private tidbits they share, rather than putting it all in the hands of companies.”
