Want Your Facebook Post to Go Viral? Give It Three Hours

Creating content with the idea of ‘going viral’ is every marketer’s dream but you have to throw a lot of ‘you know what’ against the wall before something sticks.

YouTube Celebrates One Billion Monthly Users

youtube smartphoneYouTube now has more than a billion unique users every single month.

I’ll let you have a moment so you can digest that nugget of news.

Need more? YouTube has more:

  • Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube.
  • Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.
  • If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.
  • PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That’s a lot of Gangnam Style!

Incredible, isn’t it? That something as simple as a website for silly videos could turn into such a massive powerhouse?

Deloitte’s State of the Media Democracy Tracks the Illusive Digital Omnivore

sheldon cooperSsh. . . don’t disturb the digital omnivores. You can get a little closer if you’re quiet. Generally, they’re too engrossed in their media device to notice you, but if they sense you’re reading over their shoulder. . . look out. . .it could get ugly.

The new Deloitte State of the Media Democracy survey says that there’s been a dramatic rise in the digital omnivore population. 26% of consumers have morphed into one of these creatures because they own a laptop, a smartphone and a tablet.

Here’s an amazing fact. Tablet ownership is up 177% over last year. How crazy is that?

Digital omnivores are passionate creatures.

93% said that Internet access is the most valued household subscription. (Take that Sunday newspaper.) More than half said they’d pay extra in order to get a little more speed on the information superhighway.

Google Keeps Its Productivity Focus with Google Keep

Google Keep Logo 2Google is not resting on its search laurels anymore and with the introduction of Google Keep now people might understand even more how Google is about productivity more than it is about anything else.

As described in the Google blog the Keep service is

Every day we all see, hear or think of things we need to remember. Usually we grab a pad of sticky-notes, scribble a reminder and put it on the desk, the fridge or the relevant page of a magazine. Unfortunately, if you’re like me you probably often discover that the desk, fridge or magazine wasn’t such a clever place to leave the note after all…it’s rarely where you need it when you need it.

To solve this problem we’ve created Google Keep. With Keep you can quickly jot ideas down when you think of them and even include checklists and photos to keep track of what’s important to you. Your notes are safely stored in Google Drive and synced to all your devices so you can always have them at hand.

As is Google’s way, here is their video introduction of the service.
