How is Coronavirus Affecting Business & What Can You Do About It?

Note: As the coronavirus situation in the UK continues to evolve, this post was accurate at the time of writing. At present, there’s no escape from the news of coronavirus. It consumes every news report, social feed and, for many of us, our thoughts. What’s happening right now can feel genuinely overwhelming. Already, we’re witnessing the knock-on effect it’s having on the economy – the Bank of England has cut interest rates to an all-time low, and all non-essential brick and mortar businesses...

TikTok accounts posing as politicians like Trump and Bernie Sanders keep cropping up, and it's another symptom of the app's ongoing struggle to police itself

Parody accounts of world leaders are all over popular video app TikTok, Bloomberg reports. The app doesn't have a strong verification system to identify genuine accounts. Despite it's popularity, officials, especially in the US, have mostly avoided TikTok, at least in part due to security concerns over the Chinese-owned company.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. World leaders might not be using TikTok, but that doesn't stop copycat accounts from impersonating them on the a...

The thing about Facebook and political advertising

As you have probably heard (if you are working in the media), there has been a lot of noise around political advertising on social media channels. It started when Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook (in case you didn't know ;)) said that they were that were misleading, not even if they clearly promoted lies.This created a lot of angry debates, and justly so. Despite what you think about free speech, the simple fact that Zuckerberg went out and told politicians "Hey, you are free to lie on Facebook!"...

This Week in Photography Books: Joshua Dudley Greer

  I was six years old when Ronald Reagan was elected. And 10 when he got another four years. Ironically, it wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned my parents were staunch Democrats. For whatever reason, they didn’t discuss politics much at the dinner table, and in a pre-Internet era, it was hard to know as much about the issues as we do now. These days, my son watches Hassan Minaj and John Oliver on Youtube for his news, and recently opined about Boris Johnson with one of our Antidote studen...

Boris Johnson sighting!

This morning coming in to work I saw Boris Johnson at Euston Square station! That wild yellow hair is so distinctive. My first instinct was to cat-call him somehow, but I restrained it, which I’m glad of. He looked so vulnerable there – surrounded by largely-liberal Londoners, a few of whom were goggling and wondering if it was him. Maybe if I’d thought more, I would have asked for a selfie! But if had cat-called him, what would I say? Probably something about whether his fantasy dream of Brexit...

Facebook shuts down fake pro-Corbyn and anti-Brexit accounts linked to Iran 

Facebook has removed fake pro-Corbyn and anti-Brexit accounts linked to Iran amid a purge of hundreds of pages falsely posing as news organisations or grassroots activists in Britain. Fake accounts called “The British Left” and “Free Scotland 2014” were among a list of 652 pages, groups and accounts shut down by the social media company, which found they were “distinct campaigns” for “coordinated inauthentic behaviour”. On Wednesday, Facebook published extracts from the accounts which included p...

Bitter Lessons for Remain on Their Social Media Strategy

The Huffington Post recently published this article by We Are Social’s Research & Insight Director, Andre van Loon, discussing the social media lessons to be learned from the EU Referendum for any future political campaigns. They’ve been kind enough to let us reproduce it below.

Front and centre, but will it work? Social media in the EU referendum campaigns

Huffington Post recently published this article by We Are Social’s Research & Insight Director, Andre van Loon, examining social media’s role in the EU referendum campaigns. They’ve been kind enough to let us reproduce it below. “What is clear is that traditional media…is not the main focus for both [EU referendum] campaigns’ marketing push.” This was the fascinating finding in a recent article in Financial Times, reporting on the avid use of social media by Britain Stronger in Europe and Vote L...
