Social Media Bullying

20140320-105243.jpg

Last night I attended #smcakl (Social Media Club, Auckland) event to hear a panel discuss “Is Social Media Anti-Social?”

What do you think?

There was a lot of talk about Charlotte Dawson’s passing and her experience with cyber bullying, on the Twitter platform.

Question: When you become famous or successful, do you somehow get more haters?

I think so, unfortunately. The forum talked about (personally) moderating your content, brand management, the pitfalls of social media and the accessibility of voice, to all.

Some people choose to reveal everything they do via social: take pictures on Instagram, microblog on Twitter, post updates on Facebook and film on SnapChat.

Where does it all stop?

Having a digital footprint is essential in today’s world, however you need to manage the content, how you communicate to followers and most importantly, don’t take the feedback too harshly. Human beings sometimes speak with no filters, is that okay?

In conclusion: social media is modern communication in the online world. Just don’t forget about the offline relationships and networking events, that keep us real.

Are You A Morning Person?

Recently, I was interviewed (via twitter) about my morning (daily) routine. Do you have one of those?

After thinking long and hard about (my) consistency, I do actually have a regime, however I am not a stickler for habitual behaviours, at set times.

As an exercise, I googled ‘morning routine’. Most of the images (searchable) were geared at young children, to remind them of their daily tasks/chores, before school.

Therefore, a ‘morning routine’ is (possibly) drummed into us, from pre-school times subconsciously.

Interesting.

The only thing in my morning that is constant: coffee!

How about you?

#Brandstorming

What is your favourite brand? Maybe Gucci, Fendi, Miu Miu, Nike, Apple, Swatch, Audi or Wagamama?

Whether you are into designer products or high street: brands are in our daily life, right?

When I am shopping in the supermarket, labels and/or packaging on first glance: speak volumes. If I don’t like the design or logo, I won’t buy it. Unless it had been recommended to me, then maybe I might make an exception.

My friend recently asked me to help her with (possible) brand names for her start-up. After two hours of deliberating, I think we have something.

Exciting.

I suppose we are all brands: individually. However when we think Porsche or Giorgio Armani, what comes to mind? Style, chic, sophistication and expensive right?

Lastly, What does your brand smell, taste, sound, feel and look like?
