Facebook Hilariously Debunks Princeton Study Saying It Will Lose 80% Of Users | TechCrunch

Facebook Hilariously Debunks Princeton Study Saying It Will Lose 80% Of Users | TechCrunch | Government | Scoop.it

Last week Princeton researchers released a widely covered study saying Facebook would lose 80% of its users by 2015-2017.

 

But now Facebook’s data scientists have turned the study’s silly “correlation equals causation” methodology of tracking Google search volume against it to show Princeton would lose all of its students by 2021.

 

A Facebook spokesperson says “the report that Princeton put out is utter nonsense.” Indeed, it’s flawed throughout.

5 Marketing Lessons from Apple's Iconic 1984 Ad

5 Marketing Lessons from Apple's Iconic 1984 Ad | Government | Scoop.it
What your brand can learn from one of the best marketing videos of all time, Apple's 1984 Superbowl ad.

 

SuperBowl advertisements have been compared to fast food. In the words of Marketing Strategist Steve McKee, "they taste great going down, but they don't offer much long term satisfaction." A notable exception is Apple's 1984 commercial, which was recently voted the best SuperBowl ad of all time. Many of us marketers, even those of us who use PCs, consider it one of the best ads of all time:

The world's best commercial was really only aired for a major audience once. 28 years later, the video recording on YouTube has over 10 million views and counting. It's the clip Apple used to introduce their brand to the world, which ends with the stark declaration "And you'll see why 1984 won't be like 1984. " Apple's introduction to their new computers during the 1984 SuperBowl. was more than a little strange and disorienting. It's even hard to watch.

 

The video depicts unhappy-looking human drones marching through an even more bleak environment. a very 1980's-looking female athlete runs and throws a sledgehammer at a television screen. It's an act of rebellion that's inspiring. Many who watched the commercial when it initially aired remember cheering at the time. No one would argue that the commercial is, as tech writer David Griner says, a class of itself.

 

Here are some of the biggest marketing lessons your brand can learn today from one of the greatest pieces of advertising of all time.
