MTV opens up a new series of Cribs with Snapchat

It’s been 36 years since The Buggles declared that video killed the radio star. Yet since MTV launched in 1981, it’s been pivotal in bringing popular music to the masses – giving iconic artists such as Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams and Prince a rock and roll platform to sing from.  But, there’s a long-running joke […]

How to avoid an almighty social media fail

Over the last few weeks I’ve been reminded that social media can do good as well as evil. With up to 3m slurs being shared on Twitter each week, according to figures published in Daily Mirror earlier this year, almost anything can fuel trolls’ fire to spread negative and hurtful comments. More recently the Star Wars film […]

Animal charities grow in campaign confidence

I’m not really an animal person. I had a hamster and a rabbit when I was growing up. Sally the hamster lasted a few years and Snowy the rabbit lasted a few days. Don’t ask! But, with more than 16,000 endangered species threatened with extinction, wildlife charities are having to think outside the box to […]

If you can’t do the time, don’t do social

Social media has made me more confident. No, scratch that. It’s made me bolshy – but in a good way. Why?

Fill up on Dallas’ PR stunt

  I wonder how many PR agencies have come up with the idea to launch a petrol station – offering cheap fuel – to promote a prime time TV programme? Answer – one. To celebrate the launch of Dallas returning to the small screen this week, US TV network TNT launched Ewing Energies – in […]

Ad slogan ‘Christians make better lovers’ causes underground frenzy

Take a seat eHarmony, Match.com and Uniform Dating, there’s a new matchmaker in town, Christian Connection, and it’s wasted no time in making itself known in 2014. The religious dating website may have been around since the millennium but outside of Christian circles, we can assume it’s not had much attention recently. Launching across the […]

69% of Londoners use their iPhone on the toilet… and other top trends

Technology might have come a long way since the first generation iPhone launched in 2007, but we certainly haven’t. We can’t go anywhere without it apparently. According to mobile phone network Three, more than two-thirds of Londoners continue tweeting and texting on the toilet. The infographic also shows that we’re using our phones most for […]

This is NOT a Royal Baby blog: Waiter, is that an iPhone in my soup?

I use my iPhone all the time. It’s the first thing I check when I wake up and the last thing I look at, at night. I tweet, blog, Facebook and Snap Chat – and I’ll do whatever the next big thing is. I don’t get offended by people checking their phone when they’re with […]
