The Daily 6: Great Content, Curated Daily
Welcome to Definition 6's Daily 6, the day's best marketing news, right here.
1) Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery
"Twitter may soon look like Facebook as users of the social networking giant report that they are seeing a new layout which observers note look like a mix of Facebook and other social networking stars."
2) More acquisitions on the horizon
"News broke Wednesday that Comcast is buying Time Warner Cable for $45 billion in stock. The deal effectively combines the nation’s two biggest cable operators. Although the formal announcement is due this morning, we’re told the boards of both companies have already approved the deal."
3) Other fast food chains seek to imitate Chipotle's mission
"Looking for ways to jump-start a sluggish fast food market in the US, more brands are tacking toward sustainability positioning and "clean" ingredients as the king of that approach, Chipotle, doubles down on its own efforts as profits continue to rise."
4) Instagram isn't just for pre-teen selfies
"A report released today by think tank L2 and Olapic, a visual commerce platform that lets companies bring photos from Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook onto their sites, highlights the ways brands are using consumer-generated photos and videos - and says a lot more of them should wake up to the fact that social media is moving toward the visual."
5) If you downloaded Flappy Bird, you could rake in the cash
"“Smartphones and tablets must be restored to factory settings before they are allowed to be sold on eBay. Please remove all content from your device, including the game Flappy Bird, before you attempt to list your item again. Please be sure your current and future listings follow these guidelines, keeping in mind that additional violations of this policy could result in the suspension of your account.”"
6) What's more important to you? SEO or Social Media?
"The buzz around social media has been around for nearly half a decade now. In some cases, businesses that had a huge following on Facebook did in fact manage to translate that popularity in real world success. But is it as important as an effective search engine strategy (SEO or SEM)? Are 1 million Facebook followers more vital than a number one position on Google for your most targeted search term?"
