This incident has become an opportunity to judge parents. This time it's about us not controlling our children enough. Other times the focus is that we are controlling them too much. It seems that we can never get it right. And perhaps that's the point - there is no right.
With technology changing continuously, we will need to lean on the insight of younger talent more and more to ensure that campaigns remain innovative and borderless in the future. Supporting fledgling talent early on in their careers and nurturing their potential, will be the foundation of creating seamless and relevant campaigns in the future.
You can easily argue that Twitter's changes should be seen as positive because they're merely evolving to compete with the various other publishing platforms available to everyone (such as Facebook and LinkedIn). Furthermore, particularly in the case of removing the limit, it's extremely brave to take down a strong legacy feature.
Last week American housewife Candace Payne used the Facebook Live app from her car to share her excitement at her new purchase. As she said, "I have...
With an ever-increasing number of people purchasing followers to look 'more successful' but then receiving no engagement, is it really worth the money? I see it as paying to speak in a room of 3,000 people that couldn't care less about your services, or in a room with 100 dedicated fans. Which would you prefer?
Empathy is arguably one of the - if not, the - most crucial factors to the success of Homo sapiens as a species. Without it, we would not be able to form the social bonds that allowed us to fast-track evolution through culture and communication.
As we saw in the Scottish independence vote, fervent SNP social media use failed to translate into victory. It's not too much of a caricature to say that for one British social media advocate, there are scores of quiet characters who will speak decisively on voting day only. We'll have to see if social's role in the EU referendum campaigns is merely noteworthy, or a decisive game-changer.
Technology meant to make life easier, facilitate communication, enable people to collaborate with each other regardless of geographic borders and to help us form more meaningful communities.
I literally look down all the time. We have become a look down generation, void of eye contact and passing conversation. I can't walk to or from the station/office/shop/pub without checking my notifications which then spark an urgency to respond and engage. I'm dismissive of, and frustrated by strangers. I'm grumpy and permanently tired.
It was an uncomfortably hot Thursday lunchtime in July and we had a few moments before returning to work. Bored and restless, we impulsively set up an Instagram account, decided on the catchy (yet on reflection, grammatically incorrect) name 'Twins That Travel', loaded up a photograph and headed back to the office.
Exam season is upon us again, and as the nation's teenagers and young adults look forward to a sweaty summer of swotting up and settling down to a gru...
Although I did not vote for him on Thursday, I have only one thing to say to Sadiq Khan: "Congratulations, Mister Mayor, on a large, clean and classy win!"
The Protection Racket is an old, pure form of criminality. It evolved in places with little policing and even less insurance cover. There was no way...
Much online behaviour is terrible. We take things personally, throw insults, shut down debate, never challenge our own ideas, and generally act like idiots. Not you, of course - but lots of other people. There is a better way.
No, Kylie Jenner taking a selfie is not endangering the future of humanity. Neither is her big sister Kim taking a naked picture, or posing with a champagne glass balanced on her backside. I reckon politicians banning 3,000 refugee children from the country, or taking away free healthcare, is more likely to endanger humanity, but that's just me... Get off your high horses, and stop blaming teens and celeb culture for the way the world is. Just because someone is taking a pouty selfie filtered to the gods, doesn't mean they're not smart and can't make a difference.
Even if you are selling embalming fluid, taking direct commercial advantage of tragedy is tasteless. Since the beginning of time, people have used ...
