I was watching Spider-Man 3 over the weekend when I saw the all too familiar Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger anti-piracy advertisement and it got me thinking about what various people believe in and how social media marketable those beliefs are.
While the idea behind Social Poster is not new, this is the first time I’ve seen it implemented in a way that is truly useful. The service can be used both by content submitters as well as content producers and works great.
Mashable is reporting today on Kevin’s surprise visit (via video link) to the TheNextWeb conference in Amsterdam and his plans for the future of Digg. Here are my thoughts on Kevin’s plans and how I think it may not be the best decision for the Digg community.
We’ve all heard about how the pornography industry will decide which next-generation optical disc format (Blu-Ray or HD-DVD) will ultimately become the industry standard. Today with the addition of StumblePorn, let’s take a look at the pornography industry’s foray into the social media space, which is now almost complete. Beware, this post may not be suitable for all audience and for all social settings.
There are several misconceptions people have when it comes to content being promoted on Digg. The three main ones, though, pertain to the lifetime of an upcoming story, the number if Diggs required for a story to be promoted, and the number of friends you should have on the site and how you can benefit from that.

I was doing some research on online trends earlier today when I stumbled onto something that serves as an excellent example of how a company managed to capitalize on popular trends to increase its sales.
Today on Pronet I added a social stock prediction widget to the sidebar. I usually like to keep the design clean, but for roughly 2 weeks there will be a widget on the site that allows you to predict stock prices for Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Interactive Corp, and News Corp. Whoever has the highest score at the end of 2 weeks will be given a free video iPod from Jambaz (the creators of the widget).
When I wrote about Dell’s IdeaStorm I mentioned that one of the key factors to their success was the ideas in action section of the site that allows Dell to show its community that the company is not only listening to them but also implementing their recommendations. Today, Dell has taken this a step further.
One of the aspects largely overlooked in Google’s recently unveiled Hot Trends is the prominent link on a topic’s page to ‘Discuss with others’. While the feature is currently flawed, and as such is basically useless, it could signal a move by Google towards unifying their services with a more social approach.
Ads of the World is an online archive of the best and most interesting advertisements from across the world. Today I came across an advertisement on their site that uses four simple pictures to explain to you the difference between marketing, pr, advertising, and branding.
