I've written a few times on this blog about my trials with Android and dissatisfaction with devices under Google's operating system.

Google proved me only partly wrong in this though, with their latest release of Jellybean and the Galaxy Nexus, yet I still find myself missing my iPhone. I'll explain. The voice controls are solid.

The action can be a like, comment, share, tweet, retweet, comment, review, blog post, video, news story, use of a hashtag or mention to a friend. 'Any action taken by a consumer of your paid media is earned media. That consumer can be a viewer, listener, reader or visitor anywhere on the web. where your paid message is accessible, and from any device that allows them to access that message. It can be a Facebook or LinkedIn status update or an image shared on Instagram. Earned media is getting a lot more attention these days, and rightly so. And that gives it a lot more power.
