Anti-social Media

Anti-social Media published on 4 Comments on Anti-social Media

It seems that traditional media bosses and commentators are always criticising online “new media” sites, complaining that they are “stealing audiences” and that new media” is to blame for their falling profits.

Online sources of information such as twitter and blogs, can often make traditional methods of sharing important information seem rather slow and out of touch with audiences.

These “new media” outlet also offer alternatives for advertisers looking to showcase their brand to a target demographic.

Sometimes, existing tradtional media outlet can get very upset and personal in their attacks.

The resulting impression that I get from all of this, is of the “old media” coming across as a bunch of very anti-social grumps, getting angry at silly little things.
Placing blame instead of looking for solutions.
Resisting change for nothing more than a fear of looking like they may have something new to learn.

It is all pretty rediculous, I believe.
Can’t we all just get along?

That is the reasons of why I drew this comic.
That, and I also really liked drawing the television giving you the finger…..

Twitter finally sells out

What would it look like if twitter decided to finally sell out to one of the worlds largest and most famous corporations on earth?
Maybe something like this!

There seem to be rumors all the time, about twitter courting offers from large corporations looking to get a piece of their social media pie.
So why not recieve a capital injection from someone who actually has pie?

I think this is actually no more ridiculous that twitter selling out to yahoo, Microsoft or Google.
If the partnership is right and money can be made, who is to say what can happen?

For example, Zappos recently sold out to Amazon, which surprised many.
The world of corporate takeovers and mergers is a murky one and full of strange bedfellows.

I think that “McTwitter” could offer a really  a unique offering.
The resulting product would be offered to a customer base from both organisations, which is a large, diverse demographic audience.
Both organisations also have products which are understood and loved by many.

I, for one, cannot wait to order my tweetburger, follow-a-cola and hot apple reply ‘re’pie ……

It seems everyone is doing it tough these days.
Many good people are losing their jobs, or having working hours reduced, forcing them to look for alternative income sources.
I sometimes wonder what “Faily” does when we don’t see him floating around in the chauffeur-driven corporate tweet net.Continue reading FailWhale gets a second job

If the failwhale had an awesome business idea, do you think he would be able to shake off all his bad press, and be ale to raise the capital needed to get it going?

I have a feeling that he is branded as a “high risk” investment forever…
