Weekend Round-ups

3 Digital Posts From the Weekend you Must Read (17.09.12)

By Mike McGrail

Good morning and happy Monday. It can be hard to keep up to date with all of the digital marketing blogs at the best of times, never mind at the weekend when other things, like life can get in the way! Every Monday we we’ll pull together three of the top reads from the weekend and put them here (well, links to them at least!). Time to grab a coffee…

1 – The Drawback of Mobile Ads

The New York Times posted a great read on the drawbacks of mobile based advertising on Saturday. Interesting rationale around the disadvantages of mobile ads versus traditional banners and some nice stats too. Read the full article on The New York Times site.

2 – The Week in Social Media via Social Media Examiner

Social Media Examiner is always full of useful guides to the world of social media and is bang up to speed on the latest news. Their ‘This Week in Social Media‘ from Saturday is well worth a read, covering Twitter ad model changes and much more.

3 – Cartoon – ‘Agreed on the Hashtag’

I’m a big fan of Tom Fishburne and his marketing based cartoons. The example below looks at the folly of getting caught up in hashtag use on Twitter…


For Tom’s thoughts on brand storytelling via social media, check out the full post.

There you go folks, hopefully you found those articles interesting. If you have read something great over the weekend, feel free to share it in the comments below. Have a great week.
