It's official, folks.

There is so little activity on Google+ these days -- exacerbated by Google's continued decoupling of G+ services (like Hangouts on Air) that I'm moving the community to a new Facebook group.

Please join me there:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1797710433833657/

It's a public group, so just follow/join it. With luck, we can return to the more robust conversations we once enjoyed here.

And thanks for all your support!

Very interesting paradox: Burson-Marsteller and its client don't want to reveal their campaign plans while since the client is a public entity (with a record of lackluster voter education) people want to know how their tax money will be spent.
More than half of that taxpayer money will be spent on advertising, but officials will not say which markets they intend to target with television and radio spots. The outreach effort was mandated by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos in Corpus Christi after Texas’ voter ID law was found by a federal appeals court to discriminate against minorities. [...] state officials asked the court to keep some details under court seal, preventing pu...

Tried and true #storytelling methods stitched together a 1,432-word feature in the New York Times http://www.ishmaelscorner.com/reverse-engineering-the-storytelling-in-a-new-york-times-feature/ 
When a news story is particularly compelling, it's important to dissect the content for its storytelling appeal — especially a New York Times feature.

CNN vs. BuzzFeed is like a barroom brawl. I would imagine if there's interagency fighting in the PR world, it's pretty quiet. In contrast, these media outlets seem to like to one-up each other(?)
CNN's Jeff Zucker said BuzzFeed is not a "legitimate" news organization. BuzzFeed didn't like that

Adding AMP pages to WP.

I am very new to using WP (I'm a drupal fan) but WP was an easier choice for me. Everyone who has mobile visitors to their site(s) should be enabling AMP. Squarespace has a beta program for AMP.

If you are using WP, I have been using the following plugin. I picked it because the developers seemed fairly responsive and they have been so far.

Over the last few weeks they have make a ton of tweaks I would say for me it is working. YMMV - https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/accelerated-mobile-pages

A recent Ontario arbitrator’s ruling reminds us that the law and social media are in an ever-changing relationship. The Olympics’ once again aggressively enforce trademarks on social media. Instagram Stories are feeling good. And the trend to distributed publishing prompts a rethink of the hub and spoke content publishing model.

Snapchat results..

Here is the results from our test.. This was a 5 hour event that had a slow but steady trickle of people.

Our demographic may have been outside of the Snapchat target, but we wanted to play with it.. :)

Our main learning is to make the image smaller.. as it was we found it hard to fit onto a screen.

The results were 7 cents per view... for whatever that may be worth.

My feeling is aligned with the right event, this would be fantastic.

Auphonic --> Transcripts (CC | SRT files).

I'm beta testing the code from Auphonic to make transcripts using the Google Audio API. On the Google side there is some "free" time, and when used up a charge of $.006 per 15 secs or about $.024 cents per minute; at that price you are allowed up to a max of 1 MIllion minutes per month.

You can view the SRT file it make | click here - it's not perfect but you can see it is very useable.

This is not a TRANSCRIPT... this is a CC (closed caption) file.. so there are time codes everywhere so it syncs up with the video.

FYI, LibSyn now has an audio --> YouTube publisher feature where you could use the CC files.

Episode 49 of the ‪#‎FIR‬ Podcast is ready for your listening pleasure. And a real pleasure it will be, too, with the voices of Rachel Miller, Katie Paine, and Jen Zingsheim Phillips. Katie, by the way, was in Rio to watch her cousin take a bronze medal, so we had no choice but to talk about Ryan Lochte's crisis, along with another you probably haven't heard about. We also covered how companies in the UK are preparing (or not) to communicate the impact of Brexit on their operations, whether PR needs to bill based on wins instead of hours, why companies should listen to employee ideas, and the imminent rule that will require companies to report their CEO-to-worker pay ratio. Dan York's report covers the latest WordPress upgrade, Twitter's notification changes, and the growth of IPv6.

It's a great joy to interview old friends on the FIR Interviews podcast. I got to do just that yesterday with Peter Vogt, who's now running Employee Communications and Experience for Madrid-based BBVA. We talked mostly about the short, weekly, audio-optional news brief video, "What Just Happened," but also about the merger of communication and experience responsibilities.

features three former IABC chairs: Michael Ambjorn (2015-16), founder of UK-based Align Your Org; Dr. Barbara Gibson (2008-09), principal of Cultural Resolution and lecturer at the University of London; and Brad Whitworth (1989-90), senior marketing and communication manager for the global partner organization at Cisco Systems. Our discussion topics for the day include a look at the furor over a series of culturally insensitive Snapchat filters, the importance of time off (and how employees who don’t feel work-life balance is taken seriously are leaving their companies), the rise of text-message journalism (and whether it will lead to text-message brand journalism), how much text messaging is too much, Pokémon Go’s role in speeding up consumer acceptance of Virtual and Augmented Reality, and whether social media is to blame for the widening chasm between front-line staff and senior executives. Dan York’s report includes an update on Instagram Stories vs. Snapchat Stories, and more.

I think we're going to have to add blockchain and chatbots to the FIR drinking game...and maybe Pokemon Go.
