[Social Media] PR Agencies Need to Understand the Digital Communication Laws
The involvement of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner is especially welcome for consumers, given their office forced Facebook to change its privacy settings for Canadian users, amongst other victories for Canadian consumers against social networks and data tracking. In one respect, it’s kind of disappointing to still be talking about best practices as well as legal requirements when it comes to email marketing (or any kind of digital marketing, since this impacts social network messages as well as mobile marketing).

[Social Media] Printing Social Currency; Influence vs. Intentions
PeerIndex and Klout are the two main players that promote a social score based on influence, obstensibly to mimic the credit score upon which all currency depends. That “intention” is then capitalized, combined with the intentions of others, and securitized into bonds that finance important social services and institutions that support those intensions. Likewise, a social currency may be similarly conjured into existence – based on a person’s promise to increase human productivity in the future, not however, to increase human consumption in the future.
