thats a research by NM Incite and it shows consumer rating and reviews are the most important source for products and service. also it shows the reasons why do customers to share their experiences. it is important to understand these as a marketer for example we may provide a discount for those people who make their discussion intend to have a discount.

this article explains the drive by most companies to occupy their space on the social media fronts.But with regards to the guidelines in this article,brand marketing is obviously highly impacted by social media. i think us as marketers should also reward the cheerleaders of our brands as shaokang has alluded in his comments.As we engage in the social media ,care should be taken in dealing with negative comments being peptrated by supposedly those who want to :punish the company".i think social media is great platform for bragging about new products and developmental moves the compnay has made.

this article states about the impact of social media which spreads people's feedbacks and opinions rapidly and widely. With such impact, social media can be used both negatively and positively as a platform that manipulates publics. Companies should be aware of this aspect to use such platform in an efficient and profitable way.

 Adam Lanza, an alleged loner who shot and killed 27 people in Connecticut, is said to have played violent video games for hours in his basement.

 would that be a true statment to say the reason behind this shooting is violent video games?

The shooting, which was carried out with a semi-automatic rifle, has led to renewed calls for increased gun control measures, with President Obama, many members of Congress, media members and Hollywood actors adding their support. Yet many are pointing to both deficient mental health care and violence in society, especially from video games and films, as additional factors that must be addressed.

'I am the devil': Former classmate reveals Adam Lanza had 'online devil worshiping page' as childhood barber recounts how he never spoke and just stared at floors

'I am the devil': Former classmate reveals school gunman had 'online devil worshiping page' as childhood barber recounts how he never spoke and just stared at floorsMedical examiner enlists help of geneticist to see if there is a biological reason behind massacreNewtown resident raises possibility that Adam Lanza, 20, was angry and may have snapped over mother's possible plans to commit himNancy Lanza, 52, was shot to death in her own bed by her son before the Sandy Hook killingsLanza killed 20 children and six adults in the school before killing himself as police closed in

Lanza's worshiping page had the word 'Devil' written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd said, something which he said was 'weird' and 'gave him the chills'.

The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor every time he had his hair cut.

 

 

A friend told the New York Post that Nancy was overwhelmed.

'It was really hard for her as a single mother. It’s hard enough raising an autistic child, just me and my wife. I couldn’t imagine doing it alone,' said Rich Collins, 54, a Lanza family friend who has an autistic son, Jeffrey, 17.

'I think it’s important to get the part of the story out — that an unmarried woman was trying to raise an autistic child on her own. I think she needed more support.'

 

 

 

 

 

Fox News quotes a neighborhood figure, whose father works as the pastor of an area church, as saying that the 20-year-old shooter found out that his mother was in the legal process of having him committed and was upset.

That news, coupled with his jealousy of the time she allegedly spent with a group of kindergarteners at Sandy Hook, is thought to have served as the basis of the killing.

A number of factors are still unconfirmed in the theory, and it appears that they may remain as such for some time. 

Records of conservatorship filings, which Nancy Lanza would have needed to make in order to commit her son since he is over 18-years-old, are sealed by the courts so if any such filings were made they will not be released publicly.

'Adam Lanza believed she cared more for the children than she did for him, and the reason he probably thought this (was the fact that) she was petitioning for conservatorship and wanted to have him committed,' Joshua Flashman told Fox News.

 

Targeted: All but one of the students in this first grade class were killed by gunman Adam Lanza, prompting the theory that he chose them because his mother worked with that group as a volunteer

 

 

As a teenager, Adam Lanza would come in for a haircut about every six weeks without speaking or looking at anyone and always accompanied by his mother, said stylists at a Newtown salon.

He stopped coming in a few years ago, and the employees at the salon thought he had moved away, said stylist Bob Skuba.

Adam in the chair: Hairstylist Diane Harty said Adam was difficult to deal with.

'It’s just weird that I actually touched him. I'd tried to joke with him,' Skuba said. 'He wouldn’t even look at me. He would just be looking down at the tiles the whole time.

'I wish I would have killed him then. Or he should have killed himself a long time ago. He would have saved us all the trouble.

'I should have slit and stabbed him by accident. It would have been a lot better for those people.'

Cutting Adam Lanza’s hair 'was a very long half an hour. It was a very uncomfortable situation', stylist Diane Harty said. 

She said that she never heard his voice even once and that Nancy, a divorcee, also hardly spoke - only to tell Adam what to do as he would not listen to anyone else.

 

The comments from him and his colleagues were among the first describing how the Lanzas interacted with each other. Investigators have found no letters or diaries that could explain the attack, one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

Cutting Adam Lanza's hair 'was a very long half an hour. It was a very uncomfortable situation,' stylist Diane Harty said. She said that she never heard his voice and that Nancy Lanza also hardly spoke.

Another stylist, Jessica Phillips, echoed their descriptions of the Lanzas and added that Nancy Lanza would give her son directions about what to do and where to go.

Adam would move only 'when his mother told him to,' Skuba said.

'I would say, "Adam, come on." He wouldn't move,' Skuba said. 

'And his mother would have to say, "Adam, come on, he's ready." It was like I was invisible.'

He was definitely a very disturbed individual based on the first hand accounts of those who knew him and his mother. Someone should have encouraged her to get professional help sooner. He needed 24 hour supervision and treatment in an institution not at home and he definitely should have never been around guns nor trained how to use them considering he would act out and was known to be unstable. I hope laws are passed to stop people from owning such weapons if they live with someone who is unstable. I also hope more people take their children's behavior problems and social issues more seriously and get them the help they need sooner rather than later. You can't be expected to deal with all of these issues on your own, especially when they are posing a danger to themself or others. She didn't like to leave him alone and even had a babysitter for him in his teens! This is not normal behavior...sadly the mother's love and time was not enough to cure a mental illness...he needed institutionalization to keep him away from the public.
