First time Marketing Over Coffee listener here. I’m currently a graduate student focusing on public relations and marketing. Great overview of the research Edison has done on trends in social media and technology use. It is interesting to hear that LinkedIn and Twitter are number 2 and 3, respectively, on the list of most popular social media platforms. Although, I can’t really think of many other social media sites with same level of influence as the top 3.
ThinkGeek’s idea to present fake products on April Fool’s day then have people vote on the items they would actually consider buying is brilliant. While I haven’t had any real-world marketing experience yet it is clearly advantageous to conduct free marketing research when you have the opportunity to do so.
Your discussion about Google’s potentially self-serving algorithms prompted me to wonder about Google’s role as a gatekeeper of information. I also wonder if the way in which search results are displayed impact what Google consumers interpret to be important. What information has no chance of getting exposure?
Thanks for sharing your insight, John and Chris!
