Luckily, the social media team behind the Harry Potter series understands this phenomenon.  Most children’s parents have either not seen these photos, or they follow celebrity gossip enough to understand that the media loves to report when celebrities break the high standards set for them by society.  The internet is without a doubt the most unpredictable form of publicity out there.  Anyone can instantly read what has been published.

Would you spend $12.4 Billion a year on ads that no one sees? advertisers spend nearly $40 billion a year for online advertisements, but 31% of their ads are never seen.

    [Social Media] Why a Blog Disclaimer Is Just as Important as a Disclosure Message
    My belief – and something we instill into any clients that have a blogger or social media outreach program in place – is that you need to offer full disclosure whenever necessary. Yet just as important as disclosure – and, perhaps even more so, depending on the circumstances – is the topic of disclaimers, and when you need to have that on your blog (or other social interactions). What You Advise Isn’t Always What You Know. good example of the need for a disclaimer is over at a post by Julien Smith, entitled How to Lose 20+ lbs in January 2011.

Years ago, there was a boy who spent much of his school day staring out the window, daydreaming. To him, school was like the clink – a penitentiary so void of inspiration his imagination often left the room. His creative spirit needed an outlet, but it was so stifling in there. Kids dream big.

    It goes something like this: "all media is social media." Media (or anything) only becomes social when there is an opportunity for those who are consuming it to react back at it with some kind of interaction. The thing is, by doing so in a world where people are getting more and more used to having an interaction back and forth with their digital media channels, the more anti-social a brand can look. When people can speak back, the social engagement is implicit. Everything online and in the mobile space is social. media.
