Beware, Your Smartphone is Listening!

An evening with friends, discussion about the next adventure trip and suddenly an ad from an Adventure Travel Gear pops up. Good Coincidence. Discussing with a neighbour, which leather seat cover to buy for my car. in a couple of hours, I see an ad about Exclusive / Custom made Italian Leather Seat Covers for cars on Facebook. One more coincidence. Next day at work, working on a proposal for marketing on Whatsapp, the opportunities and the challenges in a country where DND is present but not strict, the spam messaging and brands like "Stayzilla" using whatsapp as a platform to share their offer-related ads. Same day, after a gap of 3 months, I see an ad from "Stayzilla". Coincidence? Maybe NOT. So we do a small test at workplace, with 5 devices (on high speed internet), latest OS and loaded with all the important apps. All the participants clear cookies, cache, etc and discuss a few brands that are not consumed /bought / browsed / Searched on Google or used by us. …

Social Media: Videos on YouTube, Updates on Twitter, Sharing on Facebook, Networking on LinkedIn, Trying out Google+, Publishing on Blogger/Wordpress, Checking in through Foursquare, Chatting on Skype, Building Fan Pages, Spreading Brand Messages, and Interacting every bit of our time through the Digital Media.  Where is the real Life, our tangible world, family members, the neighbours, our friends, the sweetheart staying next to the locality, the food across the street, the parties by colleagues, birthday celebration of little niece, and funeral of an Old man.

We see products in a store, we can hold them, feel them, smell them, and taste them. But when we shop online, we can buy t…

Social Media Monitoring, Online Reputation, and Scores! But, what about Content?

A Social Media User, in general, would be happy to share content, network with like minded people, and grow. A Social Media Enthusiast will try to be in as many networking sites as possible, share his content (most of the time the same content). A Social Media Newbie would try to analyze his/her scores, activity, and would always be on the lookout to improve scores. The most common example being Klout HowSociableSocial Mention, and the like. A Social Media Expert will never analyze his score or check his online reputation. It is majorly done by those who think they are experts/specialists, but aren't. On Twitter, there are so many ways to increase followers, or post tweets with #hashtags to increase participation and improve scores, that there are thousands of users with 10,000+ followers, and come across as Experts. They automatically come across as credible, real specialists. But the reality is far from truth. They are Re-tweeters and content amplifiers, or search engine optimize…
