'Fiscal cliff' and 'whatever' top the lists. Don't roll your eyes. I'm just sayin' that these words are, like, so yesterday. Or maybe not. YOLO.

 

Political observers may have been ambivalent about Tuesday night's House of Representatives vote to halt mandatory tax increases for all but the United States' highest earners, extend unemployment benefits, and fend off other potentially damaging, self-imposed economic consequences.

 

Language lovers, however, had to be delighted, because it meant they were one step closer to never again hearing the phrase "fiscal cliff." That term topped Lake Superior State University's annual list of banished words....

The meaning of red around the world | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

It’s the color of power and strength. As well as love and Disney romance. But the meaning of red goes way beyond fast cars and heart-shaped chocolate boxes. Through evolution, and thousands of years of human civilization, red has been used to tell stories, stir emotion and to get us to spend more money. Learn what the color means to different cultures around the world, and find out how to best use it for your business in our exploration of the color red.

In the beginning, there was red
Evolutionarily, red is a signal of heightened emotions, both good and bad. Think of our how our cheeks flush with anger when we’re upset, or how they blush when our crush pays us a compliment. In nature, the vibrant patterns of poison dart frogs help warn predators to stay away. And in reverse fashion it also attracts animals by serving as a signal of ripened fruit. Either way, the color red developed in nature in order to stand out.

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Red. It's the color of emotion and it can add emotion to your designs.

3 ingredients to make your contents go viral

3 ingredients to make your contents go viral | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Some content pieces had what it took to become viral way before the internet era. We called that phenomenon “word of mouth” and it helped products and ideas to spread around with the speed of light.

 

In today’s world, with so many communication means available, it should be easy enough for anyone to create a viral piece and unleash it into the world. Unfortunately, not everything online goes viral. Some pieces attract millions of eyeballs while others get their fair number of shares without entering the VIP club. Why?...

Content Marketing World 2016: Top Takeaways for Creating Content

Content Marketing World 2016: Top Takeaways for Creating Content | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Joe Pulizzi, Founder of the Content Marketing Institute, put it in CMW’s opening keynote: “Mediocre content will hurt your brand more than doing nothing at all.”

Currently, only 20% of content marketers said they were committed to a full content marketing approach: Hitting a defined audience with one message, finding compelling angles from which to tell your story, staying consistent over time, and building value outside of the products and services you offer, according to Pulizzi.

The other 80%? They’re creating a lot of content, but not building a loyal audience or telling a new story.

Here’s what some of our favorite speakers had to say about how their companies are creating great content and staying ahead of the pack in the content marketing space....

Percent of TV Channels Viewed Drops to Single Digits, Nielsen Attributes Digital Choices

Percent of TV Channels Viewed Drops to Single Digits, Nielsen Attributes Digital Choices | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The hyper-fragmentation of consumer choice across all screens is reducing the share of choices they make to watch a TV channel. That’s among the top findings coming out of the latest edition of Nielsen’s “Total Audience Report.”

The report, which was released to clients Thursday, is the first to publish shares of channels received and viewed by the average American household in a while.

It shows the average number viewed has fallen to less than 10% of the channels they receive.

That’s down dramatically from the last time Nielsen published such data, which showed the average was still in the double digits....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Research reinforces multiscreen and fragmentation of TV viewing.
