Hello, we are social. We’re a global conversation agency, with offices in London, New York, Paris, Milan, Munich, Singapore, Sydney & São Paulo. We help brands to listen, understand and engage in conversations in social media.
We’re a new kind of agency, but conversations between people are nothing new. Neither is the idea that ‘markets are conversations’.
We’re already helping adidas, Heinz, Unilever, Heineken, eBay, Jaguar, Intel, Moët & Chandon & Expedia.
If you’d like to chat about us helping you too, then give us a call on +44 20 3195 1700 or drop us an email.
Here’s a quick Monday Mashup for you, which is a bit later and a bit shorter than usual, as obviously we’ve had our focus on other things over the last few days.
Rage Against the Machine Tops UK Christmas Charts
So let’s begin with Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” becoming the best-selling single in Britain for the week leading up to Christmas.
A grassroots Facebook campaign started by Jon and Tracy Morter to make the band’s 1992 track this year’s Christmas #1 succeeded over the weekend, selling more that 500K copies online, compared to 450K copies sold (online and off) for Joe McElderry’s debut “The Climb”.
The feature we are beta testing is called ‘Contributors’ – it enables users to engage in more authentic conversations with businesses by allowing those organizations to manage multiple contributors to their account. The feature appends the contributor’s username to the tweet byline, making the business to consumer communication more personal.
The Contributors functionality will be fully supported by the Twitter API, so expect to see it show up on many Twitter business apps soon, such as CoTweet and HootSuite.
Internet Archaeologists Find Ruins Of ‘Friendster’ Civilization
To close things off, a satirical video from The Onion who take a shot at the Friendster social network in their Today Now! programme. The show’s hosts are joined by Internet Archeologist Dr. Maxwell Fry who describes the perfectly preserved ruins of an online community called Friendster: “As soon as I entered the site, I knew I was the first human being to lay eyes on the those pages in many, many years”. Enjoy.
