Aussie DJ scandal: Does radio share the blame? | CNN

Aussie DJ scandal: Does radio share the blame? | CNN | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
A suicide that followed an Australian radio prank is forcing American radio broadcasters to look in the mirror.

..."It was a feeding frenzy last week when the prank first happened," said Paige Nienaber, a radio consultant for about 100 stations. "We thought, 'This is the greatest thing ever!' Then, of course, it became a tragedy."

Although the story is Topic A on U.S. airwaves, where pranks and stunts are all too common, it's hard to know what's being said off the air -- when studio microphones are not live.

The blame is widespread, says 40-plus-year radio veteran Bruce Kelly. "Most of the industry people I've talked to are saying it's not the DJs' fault. But it does make radio as a whole look pretty stupid."...
Jeff Domansky's insight:

Radio reconsiders but will soon be back to the same old tricks for ratings.

Introducing Hover, An AI-Powered Indoor-Safe Camera Drone

Introducing Hover, An AI-Powered Indoor-Safe Camera Drone | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

MMost popular consumer drones are affordable quadcopters robust enough to fly outdoors and snap photos or video. But they don’t work very well inside buildings. The startup Zero Zero Robotics is coming out of stealth mode to announce its first product, Hover Camera, a small drone specifically designed with no exposed propellers to safely shoot footage indoors.

Hover does exactly what it sounds like: Turn it on and it hovers in midair wherever you leave it. Hover is more a flying camera than a joyriding drone, and the controls on its paired smartphone app are for delicately repositioning it, not zooming to atrial heights. But the real breakthrough feature is its sophisticated AI programming that not only keeps the platform exceedingly leve, it uses face and body recognition to lock on to a subject and slowly follow them around autonomously.

"We had a few design goals in mind: Create a personal flying camera that’s portable and very safe, but also super easy to use for everyone," says the CEO and founder of Zero Zero Robotics, Meng Qiu Wang. "Most of the drones on the market fall short in these three aspects. We wanted to up the game to the next level...."

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Cool tool and interesting marketing possibilities with this indoor-safe camera drone.

6 Powerful Reasons Why you Should include Images in your Marketing - Infographic

6 Powerful Reasons Why you Should include Images in your Marketing - Infographic | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

This can be broken into three phases as we enter the age of visual culture and language.

Phase One: Massive increase in photo creation

Ten percent of photos taken by humankind took place in the last 12 months

Phase Two: The Rise of Image Centric Social Networks

Photos are becoming the “universal language”.1 The fastest growing social media networks are not surprisingly Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram.

These social networks are the names on everyone’s lips as they have embraced the visual medium and have made it easy to upload and share images and photos online.

Phase Three: Images become Interactive

Pinterest is one of the first platforms that allows you to interact with static images and Luminate’s image apps (which are used by more than 100 million consumers) is also an example.

So how and why should you use images in your business communications, marketing and social networks?...

How to Find Amazing Content That No One Knows About...Yet | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
Sending a newsletter in itself is not difficult. But curating an excellent newsletter that people love and find valuable is much more challenging. Creating a successful newsletter takes a lot more thought and effort than linking a handful of articles in an email template. You need a trusted arsenal of content curation tools to help you manage all the content.

Let’s take a closer look at what it takes to be a curator, the content curation tools available to you, and how you can find content that few people are already sharing. To get started, there are three things a curator should do before they start to source their content.

A great majority of the blog content you read, you never read again.


When was the last time you went back and soaked in the glory of this article about Craft-Toberfest? What is “Craft-Toberfest” anyhow? Does anyone care?


Ok I confess, the Craft-Toberfest piece is mine. It might not be the best example of a disposable post. Someone could come back to it next October. But by then there will be newer articles about Oktoberfest.


How about this – by the end of this article I’ll come back to it and we’ll see if it meets any evergreen qualifications....

Brands Post Tributes to Prince, but Struggle to Make Them Heartfelt and Not Promotional

Brands Post Tributes to Prince, but Struggle to Make Them Heartfelt and Not Promotional | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

It's a tragic day, as one of the most gifted musicians of the modern era has passed.


Despite his moniker, Prince, who died Thursday at 57, was a king among men and will live on only through memory and the hours of powerful and provocative music he left behind.


Brands, as they usually do, tried to join the conversation about Prince online with mostly-purple-clad homages. That's challenging in the best of times—and doubly hard when the conversation is mostly one giant outpouring of grief. Not every brand managed it well. As of this writing, at least two brands have had second thoughts about their posts and deleted them outright. Many others remain up, though some are clearly in questionable taste—mostly because they feel overly self-promotional....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Another icon has left us and brands prove once again that self-promotion gets in the way of real feeling and sincerity and generates well-deserved scorn. These are loud marketing fails and they should be signed up for sensitivity training.

This Brand's Amazing New Logo Responds to Voice and Looks Different to Each Person

This Brand's Amazing New Logo Responds to Voice and Looks Different to Each Person | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Brands talk endlessly about attention to individual customers. But Brazilian telecom company Oi has extended that idea to its very logo—a shapeshifting mark that responds to sound and looks different to every customers who speaks to it.


"We developed an interactive approach to the identity, experimenting with sound and touch activation, so that there could be as many subtle variations of the Oi logo as there are people who interact with it," says Wolff Olins, the design shop behind it.


Wolff Olins worked with digital art and design studio Onformative on the concept. Onformative built bespoke software that allows anyone to animate the Oi logo with any sound at all—including voice, but other things like music too—and then to save their own unique version based on that sound input....

We've Been Approaching The Internet Of Things All Wrong

We've Been Approaching The Internet Of Things All Wrong | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

For years now, we've been hearing about how the Internet of Things will connect every object in our homes. And for years, the vast majority of those objects stay dumb.

"What companies are struggling with when it comes to the broad label of the IoT on the consumer side is what the actual problem trying to be solved is," says Rob Chandhouk, president of the sensor startup Helium. "Look at Samsung's new smart fridge, which they're marketing as the hub for your home. Do you think of your refrigerator as a hub?"

Chandhouk doesn't believe that the IoT will be making any big breakthroughs with consumers any time soon. Instead, Helium is betting big IoT's real utility is on the commercial and industrial side of things. It looks like numerous big players agree, based on a recent $20 million Series B funding round including Alphabet's investment arm GV, previously known as Google Ventures. But it's another investor in the latest round that gives us our clearest hint of where IoT is going: Munich Re, an insurance and risk management company....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Helium is betting that IoT will move to commercial and industrial applications before consumer products get a foothold. And there are some good examples that show the direction seems right.
