DI’s Ad for Print Advertising — Learn Social Media By Example

Dagens Industri, a Swedish financial newspaper, had a mission: Launching Zebra, a new 4 wheel drive for the Swedish market.

Idea & Objectives:

Dagens Industri

Dagens Industri Swedish Newspaper

Their first idea for a solution was to build a Zoo just outside Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and invite the company’s clients and employees. Following that, they would use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Bambuser, MySpace and flash mobs, with product placement to match.

To back the campaign offline, they would produce and distribute stickers, soft zebra toys and cryptic messages all around town.

However, they end up sticking to print advertising since it is “much simpler and easier“. This is the entire idea behind the Youtube video!

The message is: social media is not always the right solution.

At the end of the day, Dagens Industri is a news paper and they’re advertising… print advertising.

5 Simple Ways to Protect Your Privacy On Facebook

Wingnuts!

Wingnuts!

Now those privacy zealots are always bashing Facebook and its users for not valuing their privacy, and calling on everyone on the web to go back to their cocoon and place a big firewall seal on their information and lives.

But let us face it, the majority of people on the internet like their Facebook and social media and like using it. Those privacy pundits are just political motivated scare mongers. Those guys are up there on wing-nut scale with Teabaggers, Truthers, Birthers and Sarah Palin but there must be some bipartisan middle ground between the privacy zealots and Zuckman‘s total agnosticism to privacy.

That’s where this post comes in, these are 5 simple ways that you can use to ensure your privacy.

1. Reclaim Your Nickname

In the early days of the internet, everyone adopted a nickname when they signed up to an email and they were unique. No one else can claim that email and it was their own; their internet identity. Now people are all about using their birth name, and when you look for “Tom Ford” on Facebook you find hundreds of them and then you have to sift through them to find your “Tom Ford”.

Having a nickname allowed people to use it as a pass-code allowing only those whom they like to have access to their profile, you can reclaim that by using a nickname rather than a real name. This will help deter nosy outsiders and strangers from stumbling on your profile and hopefully family members as well.

What is Twitter: News Media or Social Network?
