Wall hugging?

Im sure this isn’t something new to all of us. Especially iPhone users out there, you KNOW it. The fact that we need to constantly plug in for battery power is beyond frustration. Somehow this video seemed to depict Samsung mitigating this issue. The new Samsung S5 with lesser power issues? Really? While I highly doubt so, I do think the commercial resonates with a lot of people out there. Most of us suffering from the mediocre battery performance from smartphones are compelled to make a switch to another brand often promising us longer, more robust battery performance. Well, i do think this is a rather amusing commercial of how Samsung would sell through benefit but at the expense of Apple.

An article from Mashable, reported Facebook releasing their apps with newer functions. This time round, they added a nearby friends function which is similar to WeChat’s. What could have taken Facebook this long to implement this function? In Asia, Facebook penetration is massive and a function like this might serve its purpose but yet attract adverse effects. I have heard of couples banning one another from Facebook. I guess you probably could visualize what the reasons might possibly be. Nonetheless, I think this is still an innovative addition to the repertoire of tools on Facebook, plus it also aids in further enhancing consumer experience. Now, I shall not go into details how the new function would work, but you can read more of the article here to understand the ‘Nearby Friends’ experience.

There is a group everywhere

Something you and I would least expect – Facebook with killer ads. Apparently, Facebook had been producing notable marketing materials lately. This recent ad by Facebook features people assembling in movie characters, taking photos while they mingle around camera. See, the fact that marketing sometimes cannot be a linear effort sees it diverse its application using unique approaches. In this context, we still see very real, very down to earth creative direction accompanied by a rather straightforward message: “We are not alone.” I believe the message they are trying to commute hasn’t dilute at all. Instead, it emphasizes that every minute, every second, there are someone out there who is the exact fit for you or your community. And that is happening all on Facebook.
