Monday Mentions: 26th January

There are three types of people in any office. Those who channelled their inner 12 year old and stayed up to watch the Royal Rumble who now suffer from extreme fatigue, those who don’t know or care what one is, and those like me who are putting a severe no spoilers warning on anyone who so much as utters the words “royal” or “rumble” in conversation.

So what’s been going on in the digital marketing world over the weekend? Apart from the CEO saying the internet “AS WE KNOW IT WILL DISAPPEAR”, there are a few little notes to pick up on. Let’s see what the Twitterverse has to say.

 

“It’s the end of the world as we know it, but I feel fine.” If Michael Stipe isn’t panicking over what Google’s CEO thinks the internet is going to be like in the future, then neither should you.

Imagine being able to hop between o2, 3 and EE at a moment’s notice. This kind of thing could be happening in America quite soon. 2015 really is the year of mobile! 

Twitter is bringing back the ability to view translated tweets after nicely asking Bing for the tools to do the job. If there’s a potential to start broadening your important search terms in other languages like this, we could be looking at a way to help grow stature for something like a product feed on an international platform.

Now this isn’t really anything to do with our line of work, but it’s just cool so…

And finally, big BDX event taking place this Wednesday at 6pm in the Butterfly & Pig. Be there or be square and other such 90s style threats.

Drop us a line!
